Topic: My first build. I mean how hard can it be?!?
So as fate would have it, I was given a 1994 Camaro by a co worker who happens to be a mechanic. I am not a mechanic. More like a Golf Pro... Wait, if a mechanic gives you a car for free, should you be concerned?? Probably not.... So the car had a blown head gasket when it was parked 8+ years ago in a car port. A few years later he and his wife divorced and the car stayed at her house. Eventually she asked him to remove the car but there were a couple of issues. The flat tires had dry rotted to the point the side walls had completely failed and won't take air. But the bigger challenge was that he had lost the keys. The car is jammed against the fence with no way to unlock the steering to maneuver the car out. Conveniently he neglects to tell me these "challenges" when he offers the car for free, just come and pick it up. When I arrive with the trailer to take ownership of said vehicle, I realize what I am up against. Send in the guy with flatbed, plastic skids and soapy water to get this fine machine loaded up.
I wish I had a camera rolling when the car showed up at the house because I would have appreciated the group deciphering the look on my wife's face when she saw it. Well to late now, here it is and its here to stay. I am going to need a whole bunch of help from this illustrious group as I am a novice at best with a wrench. So here we go!
I am guessing a tear down and sell off parts is first.
Interior is crap as most poorly sealed Camaro's are.
Remove excessive wire from harness and other items not needed. Such as smog, ac, seat belts, climate control, door locks, power windows, turn signals etc.
Begin to assess motor work that needs to be done. This car was not stored properly so many rubber bits will need to be replaced
I will attach some picture and keep you posted on the progress of this build. Wish me luck!!
