Really enjoying this thread and how you are trying to re-use as much of the original stuff as you can. The car looks great.

Default Few more from today....

One fender on and driver side glass back in. Non-spoiler trunk lid mounted - the last time this car was without a spoiler was the spring of 1970.

Sherm, I might need you to come up before it's done to help me get it together for the Camaro Nationals.

Since I'm going to be cutting it close I've been going through my parts to make sure I have everything ready to go once I get the car back home. Cleaned up my steering wheel horn shroud, radio knobs, parking brake components, etc. Again, some of these items aren't perfect, but they are original to the car.

Default Well, she's finally coming home

The shop has wrapped up the sheetmetal, trim and glass install and it's ready to come home Here are a couple of crappy pics the guy sent me, I'll post some better ones once I get it home this week. Now it's crunch time....I'll have about 7 days to install dash, interior, tail lights and a couple dozen other things before it gets loaded up for the trip to the Camaro Nationals.
