Originality / 08E 67 Camaro rear end
« on: July 27, 2016, 12:07:28 AM »
I'm not sure if this the right spot but I thought you all might be interested in the seeing the original paint markings and the rear end code & date on the gears..  These pics are from an early 67 basket case I bought in May that I have been putting together.

General Discussion / Original seat tag
« on: April 11, 2014, 02:36:59 AM »
I'm not really sure where to post this but I ran across this tag today while stripping my Passenger side front bucket seat apart to get ready for new buns & covers. This were original 69 trim 712 Black Comfortwieve seats. I had them recovered back in about 81 but the guy never removed the original Burlap as this tag was in between the layers of Burlap..




 The original rear seat cover was dated 2/3/69 I thought I took a picture of the date stamp, but now I cant find it although you can kind of see the imprint from it on the rear seat bun. I will retake one and post it soon..
 Here is the rear lower seat before & during tear down..

Restoration / 68 Deluxe seat emblem location??
« on: April 08, 2014, 05:04:30 PM »
I am ready to start installing my 68 Houndstooth covers & I was wondering does anyone know the correct 68 Houndstooth seat emblem location? I figure I can look at a picture & guess but I would rather know the correct emblem placement. My car was originally a 712 car so I don't have anything to go off of? I have new buns for the front and I am using an old 69 Confortweive rear seat for the rear as the core.
 Thank you in advance,

Restoration / Trim Vinyl top ?
« on: March 18, 2014, 03:03:34 PM »
I am about ready to instal my Vinyl Top on my 68 and was wondering if you all have advice on trimming the top around the quarters and rear filler panel? I had a top put on my car 20+ years ago and the guy ran a razor blade around the chrome molding and it cut through the paint and caused a bunch of rust.  >:(




Here it is almost 4 years later & this time I will just do it myself so I am looking for any tricks or advice on this. How did the GM trim the tops?
 Thank you in advance,
 Nick

Restoration / correct front suspension parts finishes
« on: August 21, 2013, 02:33:16 PM »
I am trying to wrap up the front subframe on my 68 SSRS and was curious if there was a list somewhere of all the correct finishes for the front suspension components?
Thanks in advance

Restoration / 68 Camaro Tunnel 4 speed hole location with console
« on: April 19, 2013, 07:50:02 PM »
Hello all,
 I am almost ready to paint the floors on my 68 SSRS and I repaired the butchered trans tunnel. I want to cut the correct hole for a factory style shifter and would like to know the correct location if possible. Does anyone have a picture with measurements or a car apart they can get me some exact measurements from? I found a pic for a 69 but isn't the 67 & 68 are different??
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated..
 Thanks in advance,
 Nick

I am not quite ready yet, but who is mixing Butternut in Base Coat? I called my PPG store here locally and they said they could not mix it in DBC only single stage or omni and the color would most likely be off. I really prefer to shoot the car in Base clear, any help would be  greatly appreciated.
 Thanks in advance,
 Nick

Originality / 68 RS Rocker paint ?
« on: September 21, 2012, 02:01:59 AM »
I am finally back too work on my Butternut 68 SSRS 396 after a 2.5 year break and I was wondering if anyone may have a good picture of an original car that shows exactly where the tape line is inside the door jam that separates the body color from the satin Black on the rockers.
Thanks in advance,
 Nick
