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?

« on: February 14, 2014, 06:33:55 PM »
Have a (numbers correct) 68 Camaro 350 engine that's been in a boat for years.....time to put it back in a Camaro.  It's been sitting in the boat, unstarted,  for 8/9 years.  Fuel was drained, new oil put in (years ago).  What's the best way to prepare it for cranking/starting.  Don't want to damage the cylinder walls, etc,

In 1968, were all 12 bolt rear axles equipped with two U bolts 3930054, or only those with the 396 engine?

For several years tried to locate new (or used) 68 custom interior seat emblem backing plates.  Finally made some up from scratch.  Fyi...if anyone needs them, they are now available from Classic Headquarters.

Tried to read all old posts regarding small rear bumper guards.  Still confused.   Were the small rear bumper guards available on 68 camaro's?   If yes, part of a package or available stand alone?

Need to replace control arm bushings on my 68 SS 350.  What's best to use, poly or rubber?  It's a weekend drag strip or autocrossing.

Originality / 67-68 Front Spoiler
« on: June 12, 2012, 04:20:54 PM »
At some car show recently, have seen front spoilers painted the same color as the body.  Thought front spoilers only came from the factory unpainted (blackish plastic color), so assume the painted ones are incorrect?

Maintenance / Battery Chargers
« on: May 01, 2012, 04:22:19 PM »
Looking for opinions on the best/safest battery trickle charger to purchase.  I usually connect my regular battery charger every now & then when the 68 has been sitting for long periods of time.  Would like to utilize one of the smaller battery maintainers/trickle chargers that I can leave connected all winter.  Have an Optima AGM style battery.  Thanks.

Maintenance / Fueling my '68 in Calif.
« on: April 24, 2012, 05:14:00 PM »
Last Spring I did a post, looking for suggestions on how to pump fuel into a '68 without spilling any.  Live in Calif. (Bay Area) where we have those nasty pump nozzels that are great for the environment, but make it real difficult to get a tight seal at the fuel tank neck.  I've tried several after market devices (clamps, u shaped slip-ons).  Tried sticking my finger against the nozzle rubber, etc.  Nothing seems to work.  Currently, putting my 68 year old knees on the ground, press the fuel nozzel tight as I can against the filler opening, and hope for no leakage (no leakage jokes please).  Usually back off every 2/3 gallons to let air out of the tank.  Still get some fuel spill untill I get the nozzel position and seal just right. Any suggestions?

Restoration / paint color match
« on: March 12, 2012, 06:52:22 PM »
Kurt, some time ago you posted a web site that had cross references/matches of Camaro colors to current PPG colors.  Having trouble locating it now.  Can you help.  Trying to match my 68 exterior Z British Green to something that meets al of todays EPA etc. standards.


Restoration / fuel tank paint
« on: March 05, 2012, 05:19:54 AM »
My fuel tank is currently black.  Would like to paint it to look factory original.  Any suggestions on what paint gives the best match?  How about for the straps?

Restoration / Body Sill Moulding/Rocker Panel Moulding
« on: January 13, 2012, 02:39:45 AM »
Any pointers on the best way to replace the body sill moulding on a 68 non RS.  Don't want to damage the paint.  Do you just remove the 2 end screws and just pry the moulding off the retainer?  Does the new moulding just snap onto the retainer & the screws go in?  If it snaps in, top or bottom first?
