This project is getting crazy especially when it comes to fitting the front clip onto the Camaro subframe. The radiator core support was cut to fit around the steering box. The splash pan had to be cut out and then I trimmed for it to fit around the rails in tack weld it back together has a lot of rust issues but when I disassemble the pieces and prep for paint I can address those cancer issues. This is one of those projects where you just got to keep figuring s*** out. Thanks for watching

No doubt this is a challenge but it will be a remarkable ride when it is on the road 46.

The radiator fits great. I just had to trim a little material from the mounting brace to clear the steering box.
