1967 SS 396 resurrection
It’s been a ton of time since I posted updates. So much has happened to delay progress. A falling out/major difference of opinion with my body shop manager brother really set me back. Long story short, he intended to set gaps by using filler and not modification of the existing sheet metal. That was the last straw. It kinda put a wedge in our relationship.
The shop that replaced my rotted sheet metal said he’d take my vehicle in to set gaps, do body work, and paint. It was supposed to go there in early spring, was then pushed back to July, then late summer, then I was told it will be a bit longer. I guess he really didn’t want to finish my car.
I found a highly recommended body man who is known for restoring GTO’s. True to his word, She goes in next Wednesday, Nov. 20!
He wanted all the sheet metal installed so I’ve been working on getting that done. Today marks the day that she is the most complete since the day I pulled her apart, 3.5 years ago. Things are finally looking up!
Yes, the gaps suck and all aftermarket sheet metal sucks, but soon she will be making huge progress.
