By: Bill Tichenor | 06/15/2010 < Back to Motor Life Home
At he outset... Pictured here is one of the last photographs of the El Camino in it's pre–transformation attire. Things didn't look like this for long.... Body Off Frame One of the first steps was to remove the body from the frame. This gave us access to cleaning and detailing the body of the El Camino from the ground up. We've begun to scrape all of the undercoating from the undercarriage to start. Dog house removed and covered for storage Final Product Here is El Camino Verde in some shots directly after she was finished and put out on the road for some test miles. This buildup has changed the car thoroughly in all aspects....aesthetics, speed, handling, etc.
