Awesome. Are you going to do the pan welding yourself?

Not me, but my friend in NC. He's planning to take care of all the welding for me. His shop has a lift plus he's got a rotisserie lined up for us to use too. He's working on his 69 Chevelle SS.

I don't see the pic of the rear end, might just be my phone, what kind are you using? I'm loving your project, wish I had one going on.

Its a big 10 bolt. I got it from a guy who is parting out a 69 Camaro convertible project. Its got all new internals and axles. It will have a disc brake kit added at some point.

Is it a factory 10 bolt, or after market? You might want to upgrade to a c-clip eliminator. I rebuilt (bore and stroke)the motor in my wife's Camaro and made it pretty hot, then the pinion bearings in the 10 bolt went bad. I now have a Moser 12 bolt in it. I just say this because while you have the rear end out, a c-clip eliminator will keep you from breaking an axle. Food for thought. Keep the pics coming, I love to see projects come together.

It is a factory 10 bolt. Good suggestion; I'll have to discuss with the friend who's helping me. We're hoping to use the stock width rear end, but if we have to narrow it, I'll take that opportunity to upgrade for sure.

My 'Bird is supposed to be picked up next week to have some surgery done. It will be nice to officially get it started. I've asked that pics of the process be made and I'll share once I have them.

I hope you don't lose an arm and a leg in that surgery. Camaro's cost roughly half what it costs to restore an old Mopar. Since your Bird shares the same platform, hopefully the costs will be similar.
