I admire your work conditions, I've been known to not want to go out and work in the garage because it's cold. :oops:

You are going to inspire me to tough it out and work more on mine. I just picked up my engine from the machine shop today. Now when the transmission is done I can start putting it back together.
My Father and my fiance really wanted me to get the frame done before the snow flies here in Michigan..I have also bought an engine and transmission this summer

That's a ton of work, for not having commercial media blasters, rotisserie and all the other time-saver stuff the pro TV ppl take advantage of. Kudos to the back-yard git'r'done crowd, that's a serious accomplishment in unto itself. Very well done, I'm impatient to see what comes next 馃憤

I wanted to do this project while my father is here to share it with me..he is in his late 70's and has heart issues..He is enjoying it as much as I am..since I bought my original El Camino from him..I really thought people would be bored with my post but I am glad people are enjoying my project...I am too! I want this car to reflect me so I am giving it my very best..Thank you!

Amazing. My favorite part is that you are not using a lift. Just a floor jack and blocks.
Can't wait to see the final results.
I didn't think it could be done either but my fiance said oh yes it can....I watched very closely and was amazed..we sold the body and it was put onto a uhaul trailer the same way..without a lift....I will learn alot from my fiance..he is teaching me so much
