Project Resurrection - 2012 Camaro

A family member's 2012 Camaro was stolen a couple months back and eventually recovered, but like many, was missing some vital parts.

Their family didn't have the time or money to fix it as quoted by the mechanic. When I learned of the issue, I purchased the car from them instead of seeing sent off to a junk yard.

I started searching for a donor car for parts, and found a 2015 SS with only 17k Miles.

As of July 2018, this is where I sit, my plan is to start work once the temps cool down a bit here in Texas.

Here is the 2012 with 49K miles on the clock, it was pretty rough to start with





Got it to where I am going to be working on it and cleaned it up



Picked up this 2015 Camaro SS with 17K on the clock (my mother in law took the photos)

Project is coming along,

the cars are stored about 2 hours from me, so I only get a day or so to work on them every few weekends.

Back in mid August, got them loaded into the barn to wait for cooler weather


last part of September got some time and cooler weather to get them prepped for the swap.


Last weekend (mid October) got some time help actually pulling the engine.



Few things to button up, but otherwise it is in place, hooked up, and ready.
