History
Bought from a guy who had put a 350 in it. Drove it for a couple months before it slung a rod and became my first project car. So far the jacked up interior has been stripped and the engine has been removed.
1986 Chevrolet El Camino (Metallic Grey)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Removed the busted 350 and replacing it with a new one. Deleting the AC until I can afford to get it reinstalled. Right now it's just getting in the way and the guy did a hack job I THINK trying to repair a leak behind it. No other major mods I can think of.
Interior
Planning to clean up the mess the previous owner made of the dash and slap a black dash cap on it. Replace the rat's nest wiring with a brand new harness, black carpet, black headliner, black trim, etc. May accent with something... not sure, heh.
Exterior
Planning tucked bumpers and blacking out the grill and headlight bezels. I like the paint color and it's in reasonable enough condition that I don't think it needs to be redone.
Audio
Currently, automatic, eventually I'd like to convert to manual but for now, I'm more concerned with getting it back road ready.
Suspension
No mods that I'm aware of.
Wheel and Tire
Not certain what I want to do here yet but at the moment, they're not a big concern.
