1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 Restoration AMD Chevelle: Part 4

Getting it straight.

In the last three issues we have been covering how the crew at C. Hopkins Rod & Custom in Commerce, Georgia, has been resurrecting a '67 Chevelle SS396, dubbed the AMD Chevelle. Like we have mentioned in the previous installments, the idea of this project is to show you how to take a rusted, worn-out muscle car, and transform it into an assembly-line-fresh piece. The work on this car is pretty extensive, so think of this as a worst-case-scenario build. It proves any car can be saved using quality parts.

The first story showed how to properly strip the car down to a bare skeleton in preparation for all the new AMD sheetmetal. The second story handled the new floor, quarters, roof, and other panels being welded in place. The third installment covered the proper procedure to reskin a door with AMD's GM-licensed door skin. This installment will cover blocking out the newly installed AMD sheetmetal to get the car ready for some color.

Handling the restoration of the Chevelle are Craig Hopkins and his team of Aaron Hopkins, Caesar Brecino, and Chris Dyer. Craig's shop is AMD's main installation and R&D center, so we have one of the premier crews doing the work.
