Just found your build thread , looking good !!
I like the Rootbeer metallic ,

Thank you sir
That's the conclusion I came to also.....after I talked to Jim (my builder) about using House of Kolor Rootbear, because I plan to drive this on quite a bit.

Nice color.

I wanted to go with a caramel color this time around, like my Harley, but the Warden insists on purple!

Oh well, gotta keep her happy. So '09 Ford Thistle it will be.

Keeping the wife happy will be my problem when it comes to painting the '68 Camaro, it's "our car". She doesn't agree with some of my ideas to date......time will tell.
The Thistle will be a decent color though, I don't see it much. Is it a base/clear also? That was what finally brought me around to this color.

Small video of the new Power plant coming to life. Has a donor carburetor and distributor for the run in, will be TBI in the car. My apologies for the poor quality.

A few poor pictures of the installed accessory drive.










Next step is mating the engine to the TKO600 and setting it in the frame rails and installing the hydraulic master cylinder and clutch pedal, before the tins start going back on.

Happy Thanksgiving ALL!

Thanks Joe, I wish it had mufflers on it in the video...and a lower idle speed. You could still here the cam a little, but at least I got to here it run after 7-ish months.

Any project moving forward is a good one! I know it is a good feeling to hear the motor running. Looking good, I'm envious! Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello All!

Stopped by the Rod Shop to drop off the Dakota Digital parts this morning and get some update pictures. I forgot to get some of the pictures I wanted while at the shop today, but I have a few to go along with the updates. 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.

Thanks Joe, I hope it looks as good as what you've got going on when it gets finished. I was kind of shocked when I seen how much of the tunnel was cut away...I was under the impression that I only had to cut away around the shifter.
