yeah im only in need of the two patches behind the front seats,thats all im gonna do but im gonna re seal the whole floor and put rubberized coating in it so it doesnt rust again,that undercoating is a great rust barrier.but the interior will be saved for later wanna get it all running and driveable first interior is actually in pretty good shape for 33 years old.i havent even pulled all the capet up yet to see what lies under it,so im really not positive what all i need to patch,maybe next winter i will work on the interior,wanna have a little fun with it first.but the trunk is still like new and underside of car is very clean and barely any rust.

fender

was another beautiful day in michigan 65 degrees i love it was a great day for working on my z28.spent most of the day sanding down the front fender came out really good,the hardest part was getting all the rock chips on the lower section ssanded smooth,had to sand that to primer,but turned out really good and smooth,and cleaned it good with wax and grease remover,in a few minutes i will be going to lay my last coat of 2k primer.

It's really worth the time and effort, especially in the engine bay. Nothing will make that beast you're putting in pop like a fresh bay.

I'm subscribed and will follow.

My first Camaro was a 79 Z so there always a special place in my heart for these bad boys and I like seeing the resurrection as it happens. Thanks for sharing.
