It's time to start another build thread.  You will see a lot of the same steps with this build as the last one.  Although I'm building the body style I want this time, the 93-97 Camaro body style was never a favorite of mine, and I always wanted a Firebird, so that's what I'm going to do.

 

Yesterday, I moved my new trailer and some of the tools and parts we have left (btw, anyone want a deal on 2nd gen RX7 parts, please message me).  I have so far killed 7 pigeons (22 shellshot... fun!) and had to sweep/clean a large amount of crap/feathers, but I'm close to being able to enter the place and not wear gloves to touch anything.  But hey, the guy is letting me use his completely empty 60x40 metal building for a steal so I'm not complaining...   this should be temporary until I can start on a place of my own, until then, we will build...

 

The plan is to outsource the roll cage, seat mounting, fuel cell mounting out to a third party.  I just don't have the tools and equipment to try it again yet, I mean, it took me 10 years of birthdays and Christmas requests to get where I was, building my own cages, and I know it will take some time to get back there and money, and I have more time than money.

 

Today, @MTD2799 and I moved the chassis to the shop, across town, in the rain..  a rolling chassis, but luckily it had brakes.  It is partly gutted, so that will save some trouble.  I have the 94 LT1 Camaro I've been driving, it runs ok, it has a miss for sure that I will need to address when I put the engine and go through it.

I've already order a new Ultrashield Road Racing Seat that should be here tomorrow, and I have a new Fuel Safe 18 gallon tank sitting in the dining room.  I've also got to spend some time putting together all my new equipment, welders, plasma cutter, air compressor, tool box, and hopefully the mechanic will have my injectors done in my F350 in a week or so, so he can start on the wife's A/C compressor.

Looking forward to this.

 

One "upside" is you're familiar with the build now. Crappy way to get experience, but shouldn't be any surprises for you.

 

Any leads on the perp? Guessing no.:(
