The new trim from YearOne was tested again to make sure the wheel arch mouldings fit correctly, and the new RS grille surround and headlights were also test fitted. This needs to happen in this stage of the game… you don’t want to learn that a piece doesn’t fit after the car has been painted.

This car was originally an RS nose car, so any parts that could be restored were refurbished, with new YearOne parts installed where needed.

Craig begins to block sand the black guide coat to make sure the Camaro’s panels are nice and flat. The guide coat helps to reveal low and high spots while sanding the Axalta primer, and it also lets him know where he’s already sanded.







The front sheetmetal was removed to sand the panel edges and the firewall and cowl areas. Note the mock-up engine in place to keep some weight on the chassis to ensure the gaps remained consistent.

Details…



Soon, the Camaro body tub was removed from the subframe for final underside detailing and so that the Heidt’s subframe could be prepped and painted.

Trevor and Tyler remove the Heidt’s rear suspension members and the Currie rear axle housing in preparation for mounting the body tub on the rotisserie.



The body bolts were pulled, and one subframe removed.



The TCI 6X transmission provides 1-5 forward gears shifted automatically, and will handle the power of the LS-based 600+ engine.

There is some clean-up grinding, epoxy, and undercoating to do to the bottom side of the car. The firewall shows some “resizing” from the first restoration, our new transmission tunnel is the bare steel. The hole will be cut for the shifter later.





Door reinforcement bars keep the body from twisting on the rotisserie.



Bolted to the spinner and ready to go!
