70 Malibu Drastic Restomod - 14 SS Camaro Donor
Well, it's a good thing I didn't find a 69 for my restomod project, the 69 was a bit small and the Malibu dimensions are almost identical to the 14 donor.
About to cut the sunroof from the SS and install it in the 70 as the first step. All the real body work will be left for who ever paints it. No finger pointing here. Ordered new front clip, tail panel and trunk lid.
Very next step is to remove the dash and then to remove the top of the Camaro from just above the floor. Both cars will then go to a chassis and suspension specialist who will merge the driveline/suspension, including the trunk floor and strut towers, into the 70.
Here are a couple of pics - the wiring on the wall represents the harness from the footwell back to the taillights, including the curtain airbags and the upper and lower console. As you can tell, just getting started was a lot of work.
