Glad to help, Ron.

Hi Jeff, my '68 has the original XG's and GM center caps (68 derby caps) and trim rings. I checked the fronts and when you spin the wheels the caps do seem to bow out very slightly. I never noticed it before and you certainly can't see it when the car is on the ground. I think it's just the way the caps mount to the wheel. Hope this helps, RonM.

I think it depends on where it was made. I have two GM '68 standard grills, one from Canada with the number and one out of the box without the number. Same part number for both. Hope this helps, RonM.

I looked at the original air cleaner on my car ('68 L30/M20) and the air cleaner has an indentation for the coil. It wouldn't clear otherwise. Same with the two in the basement, with the larger air cleaner having a much larger indentation. Do the repro. air cleaners have it, if not that's your problem. RonM

To add, the lid outside diameters are about 16 7/8 in. and 15 1/2 in. RonM

I don't know how much this is going to help you, but here goes. Recently I've been going through parts in my basement to sell, some of which I haven't seen since the 70's. Anyway I think (someone correct me if I'm wrong) except for the chrome lid the L48 and the L30 air cleaners are the same. I found two L30 air cleaners a '67 I believe and a '68 both for a manual transmission. The '67 base measures 16 5/8 in. outside and 16 1/8 in. inside diameter. The '68 base measures 15 1/4 in. outside and 14 3/4 inside diameter. Hope this helps, RonM.

Back in the 70's during my racing years I asked Fred Egloff from (Fred's Trick Carbs) what he thought of octane booster. He said it had a bad habit of swelling the gaskets in the carbs. If you know Fred you would pretty much take his word for it, I know I never asked about octane booster again. Hope this helps, RonM.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z/28 Correct leaf springs, where to buy? on: July 04, 2012, 06:46:01 AM
I also got my springs from Bob Harris. They sit high at first installed in an incomplete car, but once the car is complete it sits fine. I put about two hundred pounds of cement block in the trunk to help settle the springs while the car was still apart. As for the finish Jerry told me to spray them with REM oil (the gun oil). It works like a charm, the springs have been in for about four years now and they still have that nice bare metal look. Hope this helps, RonM.

Thanks guys for the info., I wanted to get it right the first time. The Lord knows I've had enough problems getting this car finished. Thanks again, RonM.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Paint Stripe Info. on: June 07, 2011, 04:07:57 AM
Hi guys, I'm going to paint the bumble bee stripe on the '68 this week and I need to know what code or color to tell the PPG dealer for a black stripe. Thanks for any help, RonM.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another VIN vs. Trim Tag on: February 22, 2011, 03:24:30 PM
No problem, the partial VIN is N477xxx. Hope this helps, RonM.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another VIN vs. Trim Tag on: February 21, 2011, 03:21:56 PM
I think something is wrong with the chart. My car is an 07D build and some of the original parts have July dates, the last of which is July 18th for the rearend assembly. Hope this helps, RonM.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 z/28 pitman arm on: January 23, 2011, 02:58:49 PM
Same pitman arm on my L30/M20. Hope this helps, RonM.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Courtesy Light Option on: January 10, 2011, 11:20:47 PM
If you are talking about the wire with the connector, it looks like the wire on my car but mine does'nt have a connector on it. The wire has a light socket for the glovebox and it goes into the wiring harness by the heater control. To be clear, I'm only talking about the ashtray light with regards to fiber optics. I can only tell you what is on my car which is a '68. Hope this helps, RonM.
