Hey Folks, I'm Clay Butler from Richmond Va. I've been restoring a '70 Camaro for 22 years. I am currently taking it apart for the second time. I'll post some pics later.

You just doing a re-gasket or did you do some re-freshening up also. By the way that's a sweet ride i really like the split bumpers.

Cole, no just a re gasket. I'm redoing some other things--fixing some wiring, 140 amp alt, A/C delete plate, and better elec. fan. Thanks for the compliment.

Installed the stereo/cd player. Every connection soldered!!


I had already mounted two speakers in the dash along time ago.


I made these boxes to put some mid-range speakers under
the front seats.



When I cut the holes in my package tray I
had a meassy looking edge that you would
see thru the speaker grill. So I finished it off
with wire loom.



It sounds great Jane has never had tunes playing
in her since I bought her--1989!!
