In the end I put about $6000 into mine you save alot of money by doing the work yourself. The thing with the tumbler is a good idea for bolts and small stuff I have a duel drum wet tumbler with small stainless steel media that I use for cleaning ammo cases for reloading works great on anything you can throw in it.

This is great stuff. You are fortunate to have the absolute best looking Camaro body style ever made. Nothing compares to the 69 Camaro. A work of art. Thank you for taking us along on your journey.

I use crushed walnut shells in my tumbler to polish my cases. First time I hear of SS  cleaning media.

Too many models to build, not enough time in a lifetime!!

I had one like that to then a friend showed me his setup. You do have to wait for it to dry out usually a day or two or put it under a work light for a hour. But it gets it cleaner with less noise and none of the dust you get with walnut and corncob.

I think so far with what I've already purchased, and the list of stuff I have yet to buy I'm in the vicinty of 3-4 grand.  Which really isn't much in the grand scheme of things.  It's all just parts and supplies.  Even if I had tons of money and was able to pay someone else to restore the car, I don't think I could trust a shop with my car! 

Hubby bought the tumbler for gun parts a few years ago, he's a gunsmith/FFL.  But he hasn't used it in years, so he told me to go a head and use it.  I was using the wire wheel on the bench grinder until it grabbed a bolt from my hand and flung it back hard into my thumb, lol.  I gave up after that.

I agree!  They are the most beautiful Camaro ever built.  I think Chevrolet nailed it in 69.  I'm glad to have some people to share it with!  Most members of my family are sick of me talking about the car, lol.
