I've been using 303 for over a decade. The 8 year old vinyl top on my 68 looks brand new. Stuff has been around since the 80s. Just been a well kept secret...
I do like the way it is not slick or sticky.

Truly sorry to hear about your loss.
It is great that you are keeping it in the family and showing it in AACA.
There are a handful of AACA members here in the forum. If you have questions,  ask away.
As for the GM Emergency Kit,  the normal rule of thumb in AACA is to not display an unattached accessory unless it is in original condition as you will get a one point deduction for condition. But since you already have your Senior, a one point deduction is no big deal. Never seen one on a Camaro,  but the two I have see were right next to the spare.
BTW, those kits bring a small fortune on EBay!

Thank you for the advice!!! The kit has all the original parts with it and is in the original GM box. The box is a bit brown from age, would they take points off for that?
Possibly, it would just depend on that judge. Again, it is just one point, and you could get 50 taken off and still get a preservation.

X2 for 303 products which I think are available in Australia.
What you are looking for is UV protection.

Taken from 2015 Hagerty article:
"Classic car theft is rare. Less than 1/10 of 1 percent of classic cars are stolen every year. Thefts are most likely in large cities or in these states: California, Florida, New York, Texas and Michigan. Corvettes, Impalas, Mustangs, Chevelles and Camaros are the five cars most likely to be stolen. Essentially, the risk of theft is higher in popular areas and with more popular cars."

We have had police security at the meets and tours I've hosted. Sounds like this one was stolen near but not at the show. It is hard to protect them when traveling.

Anybody ever tried Lojack for Classics?

Yes, 511 cars with 225 judges, last I heard.  Including 7 Camaros in 36b, high performance.
I'll be there as a team captain, but probably not 36b. 😎

BTW, it's suppose to be Bike weekend, as well!

Who is Celebrating this SEMA "holiday"?
There is an AACA event in Charlotte, NC a week early on the 7th. Steele Rubber is holding an after hours cruise in on the 13th.
You can check out an event in your area (in the U.S.) on the SEMA site.
This will be the 9th annual event.
Chevy made them and we restore them to drive!

If you clean those parts very well with Dawn, followed by wax and grease remover, you could paint them with black SEM after using an AP(adhesion promoter). Go to their website or talk to your local jobber that carries it. Not all jobbers know what they are talking about. Any questions, call SEM directly.
Several if my "off-roader" friends use Sauron327's "formula" regularly on the plastic parts.  It works!

Gold Eagle does say that their 303 Protectant works on plastic.  I have used it on my vinyl top for years, mainly for the UV protection. If properly applied, it doesn't draw dust and actually makes water bead up. I also use it on the convertible top of another one of my classic cars.
But "restoring plastic", not so sure. More like longer lasting shine.
We need to hear from someone who has used a detailing product like TriNova...

Vendors items mailed last week. Looks like we've sold most of our 9000 spaces.
Meet items for owners and judges mailed today.

So the Spring show is a PURELY AACA event, and the Fall show includes other car organizations? 

Thanks for the information Phillip!  :)   I need to make one of those shows this year...
Just so we are clear: I'm only talking about the AACA shows that the Hornets Nest Region puts on in the Fanfair area out front. There will be around 25 other clubs that show, including the local Camaro Club, in the Spring and Fall.  In the Fall the HNR show is for anyone, yes.
