Jerry,
Just heard that you saw an old 68 Z I used to own...till very recently.  A 12D black RS.
Great weather for such things...eh?
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / How do they shine up aluminum parts like that????? on: April 19, 2007, 04:47:28 PM
Greetings...
   
   I have seen several pictures of restorations where they have assembled the engine and attached the bell housing and the tranny to the back for easier installation to the engine bay....and the aluminum muncie and bell housing are so clean and bright...especially up next to a freshly painted engine.  Does anyone know how they prep these parts so that they look good upon installation?  Is there a chemical, or is media blasting the only way to "restore" the tranny and bell housing?

Thanks,
Mike T.

If you have pics or a website with the pics, I would sure like to see it.

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Camaro rocker panel replacement on: July 08, 2006, 06:37:54 PM
Has anyone out there actually replaced the full rocker panel on a 68 Camaro (I'm sure 67 and 69 would be the same operation)?
Before you ask...I don't think the "skin" will do any good.  I have purchased both, and think that the full rocker is the proper fix.

My car's driver side rocker has cancer in the rocker panel that requires it to be replaced.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike T.

This picture shows the correct placement for the problem I have.  Thought about cutting a hole large enough for a nut to fit into and weld the nut in....so that I can bolt the fender to the body.  Is this to crude?  Is there another way to address this?

Anyone got experience with this?

Thanks,

Looking for any information for a Camaro out of Wisconsin originally ( I think).

Thanks,

I think that your picture shows the incorrect placement.  My problem is the rearmost place on the front fender where a bolt attached the fender to the bottom of the car. This place is almost directly below the hinges of the door on the underside of the car.
I have cut a small "window" in the sheet metal to try to see what I can do.  Not sure if there was a nut welded to the inside of this area or what. Seems like a nut is in there, but loose...with a hole in the middle that will no longer accomodate a bolt.  Hope this makes sense.

Was wondering what can be done to "fix" a broken bolt on a 68 Camaro which fastened the rear part of the fender (passenger side)
to where it normally is attached under the firewall.

I have tried the normal stuff, like an easy out...but that did not work.  I have managed to drill out the bolt, but the nut that I think was attached to the body has come loose...and probably does not have thread any longer to hold the new bolt.

I assume that this is common...since the car has sat around for such a long time, and the other cars I have are in the same condition.

Hope all of this makes sense.  I just hope that someone can tell me a common (not too hard or expensive) way to fix this.

Thanks,

Mike T.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '67/'68 clutch FAN, ...4 rivets ....not 5? on: April 19, 2006, 08:36:31 PM
The way I understand it, the four rivet fan blade was the original style.  The 5 rivet style came out as a replacement for over the counter sales.
  I have the same "problem" with my '68 Z's.  They came with a 4 rivet fan blade...the 5 rivet are so much easier to find.

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 "double hump" heads on: November 23, 2005, 10:47:37 AM
I have found several of the 291 heads on Ebay.  They may have the 194's, but this will allow you to have the 2.02's put in and know that they are "fresh".  Make sure there is some "guarantee" that they have magged the heads to check for cracks.  Also, if they are for a '68, make sure that there is a hole tapped for the temp sending unit.  Some of the earlier 291's don't have that hole tapped.

Hope this helps,
Mike T.
