  2. Stacey , I saw the Camaro episode changing the front end to a earlier model getting rid of the rubber nose . Can you do s fire bird the same way , I have a 79.

  3. Hey Stacey – when you gonna finish the back end of that Camaro? I can’t wait to see how you get rid of that rubber mess back there. I have 11 of these Camaro’s and am building them with split bumper fronts as you did 🙂 BUT – gotta see how you do that rear? Thanks!

  4. Project idea – how would you build a resto-mod truck for daily driving in the rust belt?

    I’m putting a 1954 F100 on a Ford Ranger 4×4 with a Ford 302 engine swap. I chose Bronco II axles with 355 gears and a C4 transmission.

    How would you paint and protect the paint? Brake lines have to be stainless. Lots on insulation needed. How do you paint the exterior for durability first and beauty second? We’re dealing with minus 0F in the winter and 100F in the summer – so what choices do you have for HVAC?

    Lastly, how do you make the running gear bullet proof. Probably want a throttle body FI instead of a carburetor. What custom wiring choices are there.

    I don’t know that this has ever specifically been addressed. Certainly, a lot of the off-road projects are applicable, but daily driving a cool truck in Western PA through the road salt in winter is a tough challenge!
