    That engine looks really clean for a used unit Phil - can't have seen many miles and / or nice and dry ones!

    Great work.

        Pinion angle was mocked up today ready for the transmission crossmember to be adjusted accordingly.

            I thought it would be a good idea to see how clean I can get the El Camino to run once completed so I purchased 2 high flow Magnaflow catalytic converters. Once it's up and running i'll check it's levels on the emissions machine to see how it fairs. the system is to be a 2.5" stainless system, the size choice was purely based on the fact that the corvette which the motor was removed had this size from the factory.

              You have to display it for a while at shows with no body. Sex on chassis that is, kinda like me....

                Still slowly working away on the old girl when i have a spare 5 minutes here and there. The exhaust system is moving along slowly and I'm now as far as I can go with it until the suspension parts arrive in Ron's container. I'm bending a full stainless system and i've kept it at 2.5" which was the factory size fitted to the corvette which the engine was removed from.

                  The rear end has finally been rebuilt with new disc brakes and tubular control arms. the air bags are also mounted although obviously empty but it's nice to see the rear of the chassis now sitting on it's new wheels.

                        Thanks gents, kind words appreciated.

                        Today was my day off so I decided it was time to get the El Camino back onto it's wheels. The front disc brake kit is now fitted and the steering is now on the car, albeit temporarily. I've propped the front up on a block because the air bags are empty so it really does go low down. Next up will be brake and fuel lines along with the steering box refurb.

                          It's been quite a while but due to work commitments the El Camino was put onto the back burner. But today, finally the body was brought in from the cold and positioned over the chassis ready for it's restoration to commence. Yes it was very very heavy but we got it up there in the end lol.

                            My son Oliver has now started the metal repairs on the El Camino. Unfortunately the old girl isn't like a Mustang, so lots of fabrication is required where the parts are not available.....
