Ladies and Gents, here it is, the project I know as Primal, my friends know as Turbo Turd, and my loving wife knows as the mistress. I am known as Primate o... Show moren the forums...this is my car.
where you going? dont run. ha ha...
needless to say, it looks better covered up than showing its true colors....is rust a color?
originally this was a 307 th350 car, classic copper, white vinyl roof, black interior...yikes.
this is an enormous undertaking that i will be undertaking with the help of my friend/brother from another mother, the good droldsrx aka dirt poor on the forums.
i have owned this car for almost 6 years, and finally have reached a point where i can start this project, and good lord willing, finish it. lotta damage here....
where there is rust, there must be replacement.
i do not have any pics of the front end. needless to say, its in as bad as shape as the rear... but she is an rs. that means split bumpers with the round turn signals.
This is a huge deal. it is definitely not for those faint of heart or without tetanus shot...
but so far, being worked on for about a month, 2 hours a day after work if i can, and on weekends, here is whats going on so far...it may not look like much, and its misleading when you take a look at what you have been doing for a month, but i have new doors and the drivers side almost completely removed. i have to fab up some brackets, finish the other side, remove the rear valence, and start replacing!!! no wonder body shops dont want to touch classic cars, lol.

my idea of what it will be/motivation is on the door....
to answer a quick question about this project and my friends calling it turbo turd... Yes this camaro will be turbocharged when its done.. i have sized both single and twin setups, and will most likely go twin.
the project, if i have anything to do with it, will most likely be a twin turbocharged lt1 engine with a 4l80 trans, dana 60 rear with 3.42 gears, 2500-3000 lockup, etc etc.
Update.... getting rid of the rust, bit by bit..
from a bunch of small holes in my trunk, to one BIG gigantic whole.
left and right sides, no quarter panels, outer wheel houses, or extensions...
now the patching begins.....
after some more work, heres where i am...
everything is trial fitted, and so far, so good.
