    Thanks man! We do ship cars all over, so the distance isn't really a factor. We're happy to help if you ever need anything.

    At this point, we turned attention to the front of the car. The stock GM Camaro subframe was going to go in favor of a Detroit Speed Hydroformed subframe. We elected to drop the stock subframe complete with 540 cube V8 with the front sheetmetal in place, with the goal of not having to remove, reinstall, and realign the panels if we didn’t have to.



    The body was placed on the lift and protected with spark paper. All the fluids were drained from the engine, the wiring harnesses were disconnected, brake lines separated, coolant hoses pulled, the A/C charge was evacuated and the lines disconnected. The body bolts were loosened from the subframe, and the car was carefully raised up off the subframe.

    In the doghouse…



    We’ll clean up the big harness hole with no grommet, and sheet metal screws in the shifter hole / transmission tunnel.



    Also discovered that the pilot bearing had eaten itself.



    The starter was a bit hungry as well, as it ate some flywheel teeth.



    The 540 on the stand, ready for a re-gasketing to stop some leaks.



    The metal crew repaired the holes in the floor, and the entire pan was scuffed for new epoxy and coatings.









    Bottom side cleaned and seam sealed.
