Tim your camaro has had a very hard life .Why do people let great cars get to that stage its a crime!!! .You have your work cut out for you on that one best of luck getting her back on the road .As for your model its looking good shame about the bumper snapping !

 

I built the 70 1/2 camaro years ago its now in the spares box .Im not sure if you can use any parts from it  I will dig it out and have a look for you but I think it was a split bumper on that year ?

The Camaro isn't in as bad as the pics make it out to be. Typical rust, like all these cars have. It will be just over $350 in sheetmetal. I can do all the cutting, welding, body work and painting so no worries there. I am also going to be building the engine, but not until all body work is done lol. It will take some time, but shouldn't be too hard to do, I have seen alot worse cars.

 

As far as the model goes, its going slow lol. The 70 1/2 camaro kits are all split bumpers.  I am sure I could use the one you have for something....I have actually thought about getting another kit and making a version of my car in its current state....might could use yours for that.

ok cool...just let me know what all you find of it.

 

 

I had originally planned on doing it as it sits when I bought this kit, but getting tired of people asking what I have planned for it...lol so building a scaled version of what it will look like when finished.
