I have this same project to accomplish. 1968Z28 clutch dated 11/2/1967

I use this series of chemicals in conjunction with basic soap & water. As far as scrubbing action I use a 3M scotch-brite greenie pad &/or Nylon and at the most a brass bristle brush. 

THE KEY is the Alum Brightener chemical. PPG DX501.

as usual using the correct PPE, Personal Protective Equipment. - Safety First.

Garage Talk / Re: My First Camaro - What was Yours?
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:00:16 AM »
Purchased from my 'future' bother-in-law in 1980 as a junior in high school. 1st Car for ME 1967 Camaro
230 cu/in 4 speed Saginaw open 2;73
We called these a "Singer Special",  Jim Singer @ Longs Autobody paint and tires (Wheels) and flip it.

Was a great First car that I used my Summer earnings from Hard labor on Naval Ships in Bremerton, while buddies partied,,,, Was a fun car to learn on (6 cyl) and develop the f body passion and pursue other F body iron.

Dig the AMC scoops!

I promptly SOLD it to fund my Pace Car in 1984. Funny How you miss the ones that are gone,,,,,Last I saw it was headed to Arizona a dad bought it for his Marine Son, Car Has to be out there somewhere.

Original Cars and Details / Re: Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)
« on: August 18, 2017, 02:05:35 AM »
This is the best photo I could find of the teardown on my 68Z with the black cowl paint- You have to disregard the orange stripe change that someone did later in the cars life. The Gloss black in the cowl (LOS) style can be clearly seen.

Originality / Re: 69 Camaro Rear Wheel Well Plugs
« on: August 18, 2017, 01:27:13 AM »
1968 LOS 12D
Only shot I could find from Teardown, I however have a baggie marked rear wheel well plugs that has a combination of the two styles.

I was not sure "IF" your title was for 69 info (data) only, but then you posted a 68 so I figured I would add this photo.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: HTA 2018 schedule
« on: August 06, 2017, 06:00:17 PM »
Thanks for the feedback. I was very disappointed in the PNW turnout this year. & I will be committing to venturing south for the action. (2018) with some older friends who were in the stands at Kent in the sixties, I am a big fan of Go Go Green #7, being a PNW'er. & The 68Z project has me jazzed about racing (Spectator) of a left & right nature as opposed to the straights ,,,,,

Attached Tony's car in 2007 or 2009?

Typically, "IF" you can attend only ONE (1) event from the above offerings, & I understand this can be very subjective. Which would be a no brainer to attend, even considering all the associated logistics for a max participants  viewing, Most cars for the buck. Even if the venue might be #2, but I would rather see the most iron rather than the most technical track,,,
