Originality / Steering Coupler Nuts
« on: January 24, 2020, 08:07:14 PM »
I cleaned up a original steering coupler for a 1968 Camaro, however the nuts and lock washers were missing. I've seen the parts vendors selling replacements in what I believe is gold cadmium plating, zinc plating or a combination of both. What is correct? Thank Paul

Originality / 1968 Camaro Power Steering Hose Bracket?
« on: January 14, 2020, 01:29:24 AM »
This Steering box originated on a 1968 Chevelle. This hose bracket was on it when I removed it from the Chevelle. It had the correect date code so I had it rebuilt to Camaro specs.. They reistalled the bracket after they rebuilt it. Did Camaros have that bracket on it or was it specific to a 1968 Chevelle? Thanks

Originality / Turn signal shaft knob?
« on: November 19, 2019, 10:08:53 PM »
I bought a NOS turn signal shaft 3909580 for my 68 Camaro. I need to install the knob, after I paint it blue, black is all that's available. I thought the knob was pressed on the stalk, but the one I ordered just drops on with no resistance. Are they glued on? The diameter of the knob is a tad larger where it meets the shaft. Is it supposed to be a flush, smooth transition to the shaft? Thanks Paul

I did a search, not much on the tantalizing topic of turn signal shafts.

Restoration / Glove box liner

I need to order a new glove box liner for 68 Camaro. The prices vary from $14.99 all the way to $82.00 Seems like quite a spread on pricing.
 Anybody bought one recently and can make a recommendation? Thanks Paul

Guy selling this says it for a 68 Camaro with Turbo 400. I've never seen that circular ring on one.

General Discussion / 1968 SS 396 Fan Clutch
« on: October 08, 2019, 12:06:15 AM »
I intend to install a Clutch fan on the car. It originally had a fixed blade fan. I have secured a 4 rivet 5 blade fan for 67-68 car I'm trying to find a good used one. The new clutches have the slotted mounting holes at the water pump flange which won't appear original. Looking for a way to identify a BB fan clutch verses a small block. Thanks

General Discussion / Lower door, fender and quarter trim clips
« on: September 26, 2019, 11:31:54 PM »
I'm installing the trim and have 2 styles of clips. The green one in the picture is one style , the red the other. I like the way the red clips fits. It seems much more secure than the green clip. I have a original door molding and the red clips were used. I'm assuming they would work on the fenders and quarters. Anybody have any experience using either type? The red clips have a foam around and in the contour of the clip that is still pliable after 50 years. Any idea how to replicate that? Spray foam won't work because it doesn't stay pliable.

Originality / 1968 Lower Door, Quarter and Fender Moldings
« on: September 26, 2019, 05:44:52 PM »
I need to purchase a installation clip kit to install the RS Door, Fender and Quarter trim. Some of the kits include 4 pieces of black foam or felt others do not. What is the purpose of this part, where does it fit and is it necessary? Thanks

Restoration / Ground point in the trunk
« on: September 02, 2019, 02:48:14 AM »
I installed a reproduction rear wiring harness. All the wire connectors and light sockets are straight forward, but there is a ground wire around the fuel filler that I can't find a attaching point. It has a round eyelet so I know it gets a screw or on a stud, but I'm not seeing it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Paul

General Discussion / Black speaker covering material.
« on: August 20, 2019, 01:32:38 AM »
I ordered a replacement dash speaker that has two 4" speakers instead of a single. This one doesn't have the black translucent material covering the speakers. Does anybody know what the material is and where I can buy it. Thanks

Originality / 1968 Rear Antenna wire routing?
« on: August 13, 2019, 12:13:45 AM »
Anybody know the routing of the rear antenna wire. I know it runs down the right side of the car? I didn't take the car apart, so I'm at a loss on the original route. Does it go over the outer wheel well at the rear seat divider or under the seat? Thanks Paul

General Discussion / Al Knoch Bright Blue Dash Pad 68 Camaro
« on: July 23, 2019, 12:56:08 AM »
Anybody have a 1968 dash pad recovered in blue. My interior is medium blue and I'm thinking bright blue isn't going to work. That's the only blue they offer for 68(looks the same as 67 bright blue). If you had one redone was it the correct color. I'm thinking I'm going to have to dye it!

Thanks Paul

Originality / Hinge Pillar Plug for Antenna Hole
« on: July 19, 2019, 08:30:00 PM »
My original plug has deteriorated to the point you can't read the part number, it's has almost cracked in half. Haven't found any mention of one at the Camaro parts vendors. Can somebody point me in right direction? Thanks

Originality / Quarter panel vent screws?
« on: July 19, 2019, 08:22:37 PM »
I have AMK interior kit and it came with 2 screws for the Qrt. vents. They are chrome with sealer on them. The repo vents from D&R came with 2 black phosphate screws with a broad head resembling a washer. Which screw is correct? Thanks Paul
