How are u repairing the seats ? We have interior guys that fix seats for the used cars and do a good job. Your drivers seat is pretty rough

The photos uploaded in reverse order.
I took the seats to Mapes Upholstery in Gilberts
The driver bolster section and the rear top/ middle sections were replaced

Bumpers are getting dropped off for paint on Monday. Grill gets dropped off for powdercoating.
Lots of cleaning..... Yes, I will be cleaning areas unseen and never to be seen again. But I will take pictures for documentation ( DEEZUZ DEEZUZ likes this ).

I will post before and after pictures of the bumpers, just nagging eye sores that I'm tired of looking at.
As Matt from Obsessed Garage would say. I'm dialing it in.

More posts to follow, I just used the super fancy TCG photo uploader for the 2 pictures instead of making an imgur album

I was gonna guess relocating a washer pump.
yeah, no. Not that fancy for this one.

Are you going to polish and ceramic coat behind the tail lights and bumper?
Everything will be cleaned and coated. If there are areas where there may be clear, yes, polished and coated.
no joke, for reals

It actually gets VERY dirty behind any Camaro tail lights
Yep. The inside of the rear bumper is real dirty. The body shop will take care of that. But I will be cleaning everything and anything I can reach. I'm actually looking forward to using the 1" polisher on the "CAMARO" panel.

Thats unacceptable

Well, front bumper is done and on the car. I will be wet sanding any dust nibs and polishing. Coating has to wait 30 days so I will probably leave the grill off for now.
but
The a rear bumper is on order. Shop said that the stress cracks were apparent after spraying the sealer. I guess I won't know for sure. The cost of a new GM bumper + paint is only a little more $ than refinishing the existing bumper. It's only money. I'm just bummed that its going to be nice this weekend and I was hoping to have the car back together.

😕
