If you want to see some more install pics of the clutch pedal assembly you can check it out in this Rod Shop link http://www.jimsrodshop.net/Taylor_19...ElCamino__.htm

For the fuel system.

They have the fuel tank fitted with the Stealth 340 retro fit kit, the fuel lines ran and are ready to put the tank back in. There may need to be some minor trimming of a bed brace and a plate installed from what I can see first hand. We shall see.

The Engine.

Engine is set into place, exhaust is reconnected. It looks like there is plenty of room for the serpentine system.

Transmission.

They have the transmission in, clutch, pressure plate, hydraulic throw out bearing, clutch master cylinder mounted, clutch pedal installed and beginning the trans tunnel mods and shifter hump fabrication.

A couple of random shots of the bottom of the car.

On a side note, under the carpet and all along the bottom of the car is exceptionally "clean" and rust free. So far except for the battery box area there has been no metal work that isn't related to the trans tunnel mod.

Next on the list is to get the tins back on it, then to get it motivating under it's own power. It's starting to resemble a car again!

Thanks for looking.
WTG Kyle...really looking good. It has been quite the journey for you!

WTG. Keep it up and don't get in a hurry. Most of my major mistakes were when I got in a hurry.

I got a few more pictures on the way out of town. They had a bit more work done as well.

One of the Bypass piping that was made for the Vortec intake.



Pic of the Sick Speed Monte clutch pedal installed.



This one shows some of the hokey wiring I did when I installed a neutral safety switch for the Automatic floor shift.....don't laugh too hard, it worked.




Cleaned painted & reinstalled Booster / Master cylinder.



One of the Plumbing for the throw out bearing & how it's routed to keep it off the headers.



Random shot.....

I received a few more progress pictures today.

This one is the mount that was fabricated for the hydraulic master cylinder reservoir.



This one is a shot of the finished product.



Here are a couple of shots of the transmission tunnel mods taking shape.





Here are some shots from under the hood, some of the systems being tied in.





AND last but not least....the tins are going back on at long last!



Thanks for looking!

There's been some more progress, thought I'd share.

A couple more shots of the transmission tunnel mods, it's nearly complete.




Some more pictures from under the hood (which isn't on the car).



There were some modification to a bed brace required to get the tank back under the car.






Here's some shots of fuel delivery components going in.




And another shot of the core support, it shows the color a bit better.


Thanks for looking.

Hey all!

Whatcha' think of the kick a** chrome grille that Eklers sent me for my Camino......I bet whomever got it would MUCH rather have their package, that I received.

Test fitting the new radiator today.....looks like it doesn't fit so well.


Seems like a bust all in all......can't win 'em all I guess.

Default Found a "New" (to me) Vendor

I was looking for a better gauge trim panel....I found one that was reasonably priced. From a place called El Camino Manufacturing.

http://www.elcaminomanufacturing.com...1978-1987.html

It looks good....better than mine (It's an SS plate / Black with red stripe).



And to my surprise....




Also went to the Rod shop while I was home this weekend, the trans tunnel mod is almost complete.



And a bonus that I wasn't expecting, shop owner ran across a 12 bolt with posi from a 70 Chevelle.....it'll need some work to fit....but it's going in the Camino eventually.

I bought a new grille for the Camino.......I'm not too excited about it. "Quality" Taiwan parts....but they will do for now.
