If I make it to the fall swap at English town, I will get some info on the "r12 compatible" refrigerant the vender sells there. I can't vouch for quality, but he has been attending for several years. If the stuff was real bad, I would expect him to have disappeared by now.

Yes,  How much?

If you want a good match, it might be best to send them a sample from your top, or find something that matches what you have. Computer displays are not all created equal. Colors could be significantly different. At a minimum I would include the sample they sent you in the photo to give them a reference point.

Good luck,

Tom

As Lakeholme said, lap belts work for most car seats. Booster seats I believe use the existing belts. I have not seen rear shoulder harness in a first gen, but it looks like it was an option in 68 and 69.

I would consider using the factory mounting points before any other options. When I get my 69 back together, I would be inclined to add a rear harness as well, so keep us posted.

Good luck

Yep, there were only if I remember, about 50 keys patterns used by GM back then. We had a full set at the gas station, and if someone locked their keys in the car, or took the keys when they left a car for service, we were good to go.

I don't know about CA, but in NJ we can transfer our plates from the old car to the new car at the first registration. If that works in CA it might throw the sequence out a bit.

To charge AC right you need should evacuate the system, and use a set of gauges to measure the charge. However I have seen (not tried) at the Englishtown NJ swap a vendor that sells what he claims is compatible refrigerant at a very reasonable rate. I think it was less than $10 a can. Back in the day we often charged a system with a couple of cans of r12. It usually worked well, and the stuff was a buck or two a can. I should have stocked up.

Hiw about a ceramic coating on the headers? This should contain more of the exhaust heat.

Did you check the flashers? I think turn indicators use a different flasher than the 4-ways. If I'm wrong someone will let it be know.

Good luck,

1033  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Split rotors on: July 24, 2007, 05:39:06 PM
Years ago I worked in a shop, and the rules were that we could only machine to the minimum size, but we were allowed to put pads on undersized rotors / drums as long as we did not machine past specs. Not to encourage borderline brakes, but if this is a show piece that will be driven lightly on and off the trailer, minor surface issues might be tolerated. (could cause pulling issues)

If it's a driver get them done right. It would be stupid to crash the car because you saved a couple bucks on the brakes.

Not to mention a small puddle now and then.

Ad calls it an RS/SS 327.

If I recall there were no SS 327's

Decode page says 4P = L48 or L30/M20   SS350 or L30/M20 - Non-SS396/Z28 paint with radius rod
