Maintenance / 68 Tilt column loose & turn signal switch removal
« on: January 10, 2016, 03:04:57 AM »
What do people use to remove the turn signal switch cover on a 68 Tilt colum if you don't have Tool-J-22708?
I tried a steering wheel remover using the bolt heads to hook under the rolled lip of the cover but it just unrolled the lip.

Hey All,

I see there are many around but are looking for a fitted cover to use while the car is stored in a garage.

Mild Modifications / Stinger Hood for my 68 in Australia
« on: February 03, 2015, 09:03:45 AM »
Hi Guys,

Who can recommend a high quality Stinger Hood for my '68?

Please tell me why you recommend one particular brand and for the Aussie CRG guys & gals, let me know who to import it from.

Also, has anyone cut out the opening at the front rather than rely on the cool air induction from the back of the hood? Those ducts are screaming "cut me free!" I reckon.

We don't see many with Stinger hoods down under so I'm wanting to be a bit different.

Originality / 68 Transmission Tunnel cut out identification
« on: August 17, 2014, 07:05:03 AM »
What can you tell me about this picture?
Can we tell what type of transmission (auto/ 3speed / 4speed manual) by the trans tunnel cutout?
Also can anyone identify the type of Hurst shift I have on the side of the gearbox?

Mild Modifications / Any 68 steering wheel hubs (boss kit) in Australia?
« on: August 11, 2014, 12:09:38 PM »
My existing Early N30 wheel is so cracked it's dangerous.

I have my old 12", fat rim, leather, 3 spoke SAAS wheel from my youth (let's just say that was a few years back now) and would love to fit it to my '68 Camaro. It is a 6 hole wheel but I need a suitable hub/mount, preferably in Australia. Importing from the US is too expensive and long to then find it won't fit.

Has anyone in Aus found a suitable, 6 hole type hub? My '68 General Motors Holden HK hub that I used has a different spline.

I'll post a pic of the wheel I want to put on 2morro.

Originality / 68 396 fender emblem position
« on: June 26, 2014, 11:24:28 AM »
Hi All,

The front sheet metal on my 68 SS had been replaced (front end crash?) at some time and I'm about to drill the holes for the 396 fender emblems.

I bought the Classic Industries templates "Classic Templates" / "CHQ Reproductions" and when placing over the side marker bezel and lining the template up with "Approx end of fender" and "fender to bottom section", the emblem is less than 1" (20mm) from the edge of the fender. This looks to close to me.

When I check where the D91 stripe (not yet painted) should be as per the AIMs, the emblem is no where near the centre of the stripe. The 396 is much closer to front edge of fender than the stripe edge is.

Can anyone post a picture of a 68 D91 stripe with 396 emblems and/or provide measurements?

Cheers.

Restoration / Red Line tyre measurements 68 SS RPO-PW8
« on: June 07, 2014, 02:00:15 AM »
Hi All,
To make my 68 SS/RS look more like it did in its day, I'm looking at getting aftermarket redline / redwall stripes (RPO PW8) applied on my tyres (tires) and while there are plenty of brochures showing them, I cannot find anywhere with measurements.

Can anyone tell me...
1. how wide the redline stripe is?
2. how far from the rim does it start?
If this is already posted in another thread, I couldn't find it but please post a link.
Thanks in advance.

BTW,
To the moderators, I'm not sure but some of your image storage may be offline as several pics cannot be displayed.

Restoration / Stripe options and measurements
« on: April 22, 2014, 01:15:03 AM »
In confirming that my '68 (build Nov '67) SS/RS would have had the D91 stripe, I came across this article on SuperChevy.com. I'm not sure where they got all their info nor if their measurements are 100% but it may help others trying to repaint their stripes.

http://www.superchevy.com/technical/paint_body/paint/1309_chevrolet_camaro_know_your_stripes/viewall.html

I've never seen the L48 stripes (side AND deck / AIM pages 295/296) on a Camaro. Has anyone else?

Originality / Early 68 Camaro SS/RS stripes - D90 or D91?
« on: February 02, 2014, 11:05:27 AM »
Hi All,
Mine is a 11B LOS (Built 2nd Week November '67) 68 Camaro SS/RS. I've read that the early 68 SS builds had the D91 stripe option but that later changed to SS's only having the D90. What's the closest date anyone can confirm that the SS no longer had the D91 and could only have D90 or stripe delete? I prefer the D91 but also want keep the originality.
Front panels have been replaced at some point and are not original, so I can't go digging through layers of paint to check. Not sure I would want to anyway...

Cheers and keep up the good work here on the site!.

Originality / Right hand door mirror mounting holes location
« on: November 01, 2013, 08:03:23 AM »
Hi All,
I've recently bought a 68 SS/RS and as I'm living down under in Australia, we drive on the left hand side of the road. I'm allowed to keep the Camaro left hand drive but I really need to install a right hand door mirror to keep it safe.

Can anyone provide a template, or hole location measurements?
I know it sits further back than the Left hand side but would like to install the mirror in as original location (by dealers only of course) as possible.

If anyone could undo the single screw holding theirs on and measure the holes that would be GREAT :)

Originality / 68 SS RS Wheel well moldings
« on: July 15, 2013, 11:56:16 AM »
Is there a difference between 1968....  / Standard / RS / SS /  wheel well moldings?

Classic industries has a set that states RS only.
1-What are the differences?
2-Which type would a SS/RS have? Am I right to assume RS?

Link to Classic Industries RS set - http://www.classicindustries.com/camaro/parts/*R5121.html  (looks like 69 in the pic though)

Originality / 68 SS RS guard (fender) 396 & bonnet badges
« on: July 14, 2013, 12:01:24 PM »
Hi All,
I'm importing a 68 396ci SS RS with no solid proof of originality. I'm not fussed about that, I just love the SS/RS options.

What I want to know is, could a SS come out WITHOUT guard "396" (or 350) badges and also without the bonnet "Camaro" badge?

I know that they could be ordered MINUS the striping, but what about with out engine ci badges? I won't have it for a few more months so can't confirm if holes ever existed in the guard (fender) & the bonnet nose or not.

From what I've seen thus far, it looks very genuine or at least is a good mock up. Except for the 67 hub caps.
It has the 5.5K Tic-Toch-Tac, U17 console gauges, SS steering wheel, dual exhaust, multi-leaf springs, pwr disc front brakes with correct silver disc foot pedal, brake proportioning valve without AC, bonnet stacks, blackout rear, 12 bolt rear and all the other standard SS gear. And yes, I know all that could still be ordered on a standard Camaro so hence, no real proof.

If this has been answered somewhere else, please send me the link.
Cheers from down under.
Ue.
