  • 97 Camaro Z28 Convertible Worklog

    After a year or so of lurking I decided it was time to get this project moving. I'm going to try and seperate this first post into various sections mainly to help me plan and organize ideas and information. I've learned a great deal from these forums, unfortunately I've also forgotten quite a bit as I have been doing a years worth of planning(/dreaming) in my head but nothing on paper. Hopefully by using this worklog I will be able to bring some of my ideas into reality.
