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.

Yep. My 68 is black, but the door jams and trunk match the color.

been working on taking my front clip off,so i can clean degrease and paint my underhood pieces,and the only proper way to do it is too pull the front clip,havent gotten very far yet but make progress evwerynight so soon it will all be apart,will also make it much easier to drop my motor in there.
