If you are still in Sonoma Cty., give Horgans Transmissions in San Rafael a call.  They may lend you the pump, etc. needed to get the synthetic out.   May have to leave them a deposit.

Ditto on the xmsn synthetic.....don't use it.  Conventional oil is better in old cars, including engine oil.

I use Joe Gibbs HR-2 non synthetic 10-30 in my 68 350cu in.   Tried synthetic & had trouble (too slick for my older engine).   Like the added zinc & other chemicals in HR-2 = better for my flat tappet engine

If you prefer a new carb vs rebuild or chain store version, suggest an Edelbrock 600 cfm with electric choke (reliable & simple to adjust).

I've been to HAN 24 times.   Great event.  Agree with Richard, Wed. through Sunday morning is the best time to attend.  Hotel rates increase considerably Fri. & Sat. nights.  Hotel suggestions would include the Grand Sierra, Atlantis, Peppermill, or Nugget.   The automobile auction at the Convention center (near Atlantis) is a must see.  The National Automobile Museum in downtown Reno is great also.  I usually stay at the Grand Sierra or Atlantis.  Too hard to get my car out of the parking lots at some other hotels....Peppermill, Silver Legacy. 

I like Steve's Camaros in South San Francisco, Ca.    Knowledge of 67-69 Camaros (& parts ) is outstanding.

Bought mine from Right Stuff Detailing   Replaced all the brake lines with stainless.   Everything fit ok & matched original (except for the stainless steel finish).

Thanks Mike.   Took your suggestion.....installed both rubber seals in under 15 minutes.   Less messy than my "old" soapy water method.


Restoration / 1968 quarter window rubber seals

What's the best way to slide in new quarter window vertical rubber seals (weatherstrips).  I was going to wet things down with soapy water & slide them in.  Is there a better way?

Camaros looked great & ran strong.  Thought the red/white/blue AMC Jav. won the Sunday Trans AM race?

Not sure how far away (shipping) you want to go.  Sherm's Plating in Sacramento, Ca. is very good, but expensive.  Used them on a few of my restorals.

In the SF Bay area (where you live) there's a mobile upholstery repair guy that can fix your door panels.  Try Kollias Auto Care...Nick at 510-220-0969 or Tony at 510-386-0820.  These guys make the rounds of new and used car dealers, repairing small cracks, cuts, etc. in vinyl, leather, & cloth.  Used them several times in my classics, most recently to repair the door panel on my '68 SS.  Work is perfect....can't tell where the repair was done.
