I am in the middle of a frame off restoration of a 1968 Camaro RS. The car is loaded with almost every option available at the time. I have the original protecto plate.

Here's a link to a freebie website I set up to journal the progress. My '68 Restoration

I've made a little more progress over the last couple days which I haven't posted yet. I had the frame, all brackets, pulleys, fender wells, air cleaner, etc. powder coated. It's looking very nice in person. It goes to the paint shop this wednesday.

Awesome project! It sure looks like one massive job, and the end result will be a great reward for all the work your putting in! Best of luck at the paint shop!

Did you have trouble getting the frame powder coated? Did you find someone with a big enough oven or did they do the job section by section?

My father in law has a '53 Cunningham (yes, it has a HEMI) in need of complete restoration . I'd like to get the frame powder coated, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to find a big enough oven.

Portland Powder coating did the coating and they have a very large oven. It's actually quite reasonably priced. I had about fifty parts coated and paid about $500 for all of it including media blasting and coating.
