Tks. Were the sides of the hood then body color with the underside receiving body spray? Or did even the sides of the hood, fender components that wrapped into the engine compartment onto inner fenders, header panel and valance edges also body color or oversprayed? Tks again.

Restoration / Under hood color

All,

Finally read to go to paint.

Is the under side of the hood body color or black? I had always thought body color but someone recently told me otherwise. Just want to make sure.

Thanks!

Realize that.

Meant Deluxe.

Do RS's come with standard? I have only seen Deluxe.

Mine has deluxe. The seat came out of a 68' Firebird coup with armrests.

I should be fine.

Traded straight across for some frame rails that I had from 10 years back so I am satisfied.

Thanks a million! I did realize they were the same width, but did NOT realize they were different between coupe and convertible.

Thankfully these came out of a coupe!

Thanks a million.

Will be trashing the older upholstery anyway and putting the correct camaro covers on it.

All,

I need to replace my rear seat, 67 Camaro RS. My dad found one out of a 68 Firebird that is in pretty solid shape. Will it interchange both in fit as well as upholstery?

Thanks,
Matt

Restoration / Original versus New Sheet Metal
« on: May 10, 2014, 10:49:08 AM »
All,

I am looking for some thoughts on the lengths I should go to save the original sheet metal. I don't have a numbers matching car, but do have a correctly coded SS350 for what would have come with the car. I have all original sheet metal at the moment (but did pick up a new SS hood as the first one was really damaged badly). Both front fenders and the driver side door have a fair amout body work that would need to be done as with the front valance.

How much should I fight to save the original sheet metal versus just buying new? Where do folks recommend for quality/fit if I do go with new?

Thanks,
Matt

Restoration / '67 Roofrail Weather Strip Channels
« on: April 09, 2014, 10:29:08 AM »
All, what is the best adhesive product to install the roofrail weather strip channels above the windows? A wide flat foam type strip is what came off of it originally.

Thoughts?
Thanks.

Even more clear to me now. Makes sense. Thanks much.

Perfect. Thanks. The thing that threw me was the difference in the skirt supports coming off of the firewall. The passenger side had the nuts manufactured in the support, the driver's side had square cut-outs in the support requiring a separate nut and bolt so Chevrolet thought about something from the start.

Mine isn't a survivor but it has been off the streets since '87 so much had not been messed with.

Appreciate the info. Have a great Christmas.
Matt

Ok... now with the pertinent information...

The support extending from the firewall to the fender skirt on the driver's side shows per the 67 Camaro Assembly manual to have a 'retainer' coming off of it (3921854). I think I have verified that this was for Camaros with a clutch. I have parts everywhere... and took pretty good pictures prior, but missed this one when I disassembled it. Mine was a powerglide car. Do I have to worry about this retainer? Did one come on the car and I just misplaced it after taking it off?

Thanks.
Matt
