Albert Family 66 GTO

Starting to restore a 66 GTO. Thought this would be a good place to document the journey.
The car was in Mississippi for most of it's life and then transferred to Illinois. I found it tucked away in a garage, where it had been sitting for 15 plus years.

Please DO keep us updated. This is a build I want to follow, for sure. It looks like your level of enthusiasm and desire to dive right in is superb, and I cannot wait to see what is next!

Great start , keep at it, we know it can get overwhelming when you have everything apart like that, make sure to bag, tag and catalog all bolts and washers.

I would probably use a washer, a thick one would distribute pressure from bolt.

Washer for certain. This looks like a great project. I did my 66 back in the mid 70's when I was just a teenager. My Dad had three wrecked cars, all 66's, one a convertible. I used the convertible frame because it was made stiffer. We had no powder coating back then. I sandblasted the frame, and for some unknown reason decided to paint it Rustoleum white. (!!!) I was only 15 so that's my excuse. my family had a road building business, so I worked summers in the shop. Had access to amazing tools and shop resources. Anyway, keep us posted - this is bringing back great memories.
