Must be nice to have that kinda storage buddy.
I mean we all can't have a shop with a lift at our house like you... My garage at home is 18'X20'... why not take care of the heavy lifting at work?

We do not have automatic sweepers, yet! We do however have a janitorial staff who clean the floors every night with a power scrubber/zamboni type contraption. The Goldfinger, as you've named it, has become quite popular over here... I think some of the guys will have separation anxiety when I bring it home soon.

I am very fortunate, humbled, and lucky to have all the help I've received on this car. Basically the shop foreman, one body guy, the service manager and I have reassembled everything to this point. We work on it when we have time which can be hard to come by sometimes.

I need to find a storage place for my 68 Camaro while I reassemble the rest at home which ain't cheap around here!

At home I will do the following:
-Sand and polish the back half of the car after the repair we had to make to
the left 1/4
- Install all the side glass and stainless
- Install the weatherstripping
- Install the cowl panel
- Install the door handles and the interior: door panels, carpet, console,
seats, kick panels

Almost there. I think I'm going to drive it a little bit before I have the frame connectors installed...

It's a killer car, and a fantastic build at the same time. I've been enjoying this thread and the attention to detail you've given the entire project. I'm sure we all agree...the car is simply stellar and trust the guys at the shop will miss it when it goes home.

Have fun with the final details Chas. You've absolutely nailed it!

Thank you for the kind words Graeme. It’s been a great project, fairly straightforward since it was such a nice car to begin with. A few years back I got a new edition of Muscle Car Review in the mail with Grady’s red 67 Camaro on it. I was blown away. I must’ve read the article a dozen times… I knew I wanted a 67 that looked like that. So if you’re following along Grady, thank you for showing us such an awesome car and giving me so many ideas for my build.

It has been a pleasure watching your Z and Jim’s Rat’s Nest COPO come together with similarities and the same attention to detail. While my car isn’t a factory high performance model or a super car, it’s pretty special to me. It’s neat to see the blend of factory correct, Day 2 and modern mods come together. Can’t wait for burnouts!

I'll also echo those sentiments if your reading along Grady. Your brown Copo was more than enough to inspire me too. Yenko is such a great forum with so many great cars and great people.

And of course...the builds are infectious!
