Maintenance / Re: Door Striker Allen Head?

I tried the grinding plan. Can't seem to get all sides equal and inevitable the Allen wrench end up with a taper from not grinding flat. I suppose I'll find another set. Thanks for the quick response.

Maintenance / Door Striker Allen Head?
« on: October 13, 2018, 06:38:02 PM »
I'm baffled. Working on a 1968 Camaro attempting to adjust the door strikers. They are not original I bought them years ago specifically because they had the Allen heads, not the Torx heads, supposed to be GM. I can't find a Allen wrench to fit, 5/16th is to small 3/8th is to large. I ordered a 9mm that doesn't fit, best I can tell it's 11/32nd. Anybody try to find one of those? Snap-on doesn't have a listing, found a few on the google machine,but all are light duty aluminium or brass. I found one on Amazon ordered that(socket type) after a month on back order they cancel the order. Said it is not available. Is the factory Striker 11/32nd or are these Strikers just odd balls?

Doesn't look like they fit a 68. Thanks Joe

Can anybody identify these steering arm numbers 3854874 and 3854873. I'm told they're for 68/69 Camaro, but don't know if they're power or manual steering. Thanks

Hi Joe,

That's where I put it figured if it was wrong I'd change it. Doesn't seem to do much, but a GM design engineer put there, so who am I to argue.

I guess I can hi-jack my own thread. I put the roof rail weatherstripping in today, seem to fit snug. I debated using adhesive, but didn't. Would you recommend using adhesive?  Thanks Paul

Nope not seat spring. Looking through my parts book I've found that they are used with deluxe interior door handles to keep tension on them. Now I have to figure out where and how they attach. Thanks for the reply.

I'm working on my basket case. (68 Camaro deluxe interior) I'm installing the inside door pulls, the spring and cover below were with the assemblies. The body manual show standard doors and there are no springs shown. Any body know where they go??? Thanks

I hope the pic is there

Joe, I sent you a pm. Thanks Paul

Restoration / Quarter window vertical seals
« on: July 26, 2018, 02:05:23 AM »
I purchased new seals from Camaro Central because they were Gm restoration part. I'm not happy with the seals. The metal is showing through on the portion facing the inside of the car, I'm confident the originals aren't like that. Anybody have another manufacturer the can suggest? Thanks

Restoration / Re: 1968 RS door reveal molding
« on: July 23, 2018, 03:11:56 AM »
I'll have to get the Fisher manual.  As to how the car is going, the story could fill this page, lets just say slow. I had the metal work and paint done, some things were over looked so I'm revisiting them. I'm moving away from the 1000 point restoration towards a day 2 car. It will still look original, but I stroked the motor to 431ci.(scat 4" stroke crank and .050 over bore) added intake and headers and power steering. I look for that shifter occasionally, I saw the shifter on ebay recently, but have never seen another bezel. Thanks for the reply James how all is well in the Carolina's.                                                                                                                                                             

I read somewhere that most basket cases are complete by the 5th or 6th owner. I'm determined to be the exception.

Restoration / 1968 RS door reveal molding

I did a search couldn't find any info, so I'm asking. I'm putting my doors together(bare shells now) the car is a RS had reveal molding originally, had the doors re-skinned. I can find info on when the moldings are put on. I took a old scrap door apart and had to remove the glass to get to the center screws holding the reveal molding on. Does the molding go on before the glass. Thanks
