572  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What size wheels can I go with on a 69 Camaro? on: October 12, 2006, 09:00:23 PM
Okay, here is what I ended up getting and you can not get a bigger wheel/tire combo on a stock 69 Camaro.  I have 255/40-19 on the rear mounted on a 9-1/2" wheel and 245/40-18 on the front with an 8-1/2 inch wheel.  The rears fit perfect and fill the wheel perfectly with just about a 1/4" clearance on the backside of the well.  The fronts just slightly hit the frame, but only on the tightest of turns.  This will probably only affect me when parking with lock to lock turns.  Otherwise, they will work fine.  I got the 8-1/2" because they did not have a 7-1/2 or an 8 in the rim I chose.  I ended up getting the Ruff Racing wheels in hyperblack with Falken 452 tires.  Here is the auction on ebay.

Adriano was the guy I dealt with and you couldn't deal with a nicer guy without a doubt.

I test fit them on my Pace Car and they look great.  I mounted them on the subframe of my pro tour car I am building and with the wilwood 12.5" drilled and slotted rotors and billet calipers....they look awesome. 

So there you have it....the largest wheels and tires you can get on a Camaro wtihout looking too big or too ridiculous.  The perfect pro tour look in my opinion.

Hey guys,

Send me your Camaro pics for the homepage.  As most of you know, they get changed every month.  I have no pics left for the 67 slot for next month and I have only a few for 68.  For you 69 guys, send in a pic anyway.  I promise it will get posted.  As for you 67 & 68 Camaro guys, come on.  Everyone complains that there are too many 69's and that 67 and 68 is hugely overlooked.  So send in your pic to show the 69 guys that there are still plenty 67 and 68 Camaros out there.  If I only get 69 pics sent to me and I don't get any 67 and 68 submissions before the end of the month, I am going to post all 69 Camaros for all three years.  And if I don't get any pics at all, then I am going to start putting up pics of Fords.  Please, don't make me resort to this. 

send your pics to    sdkar@bellsouth.net


Thanks guys,

Steve

Well, I went to powersteering.com and spoke with Chip.  He seemed knowledgeable, so I sent my box off.  I will report the outcome when I have it.  Thanks guys.

Here is another site in helping determine how to convert mm offsets to backspacing in inches. 

http://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

So, can someone please check my math.  If I want to get a set of wheels for my 69 Camaro that are 18x8 in the rear and 18x7 in the front and I need a backspacing of 4" in the rear (rear axle is 58-1/2" AF to AF) and a 4-3/4" backspacing for the front wheels...then I need a 0mm offset for the rear and a +32mm offset for the fronts.  That is what I come up with.  Does this sound right.  Also, does anyone know what mm offset will work for a 69 Camaro if this is not correct?

Sept 2006 Camaro Performers Magazine has a build up of a 67 dynacorn coupe and how they make the bodies.  Also, the TV show "Chop Cut Rebuild" is featuring the buildup of a dynacorn body to a complete car.


577  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Steering box rebuild service for Power steering on: September 05, 2006, 11:52:58 AM
Is there anyone that comes recommended for rebuilding power steering boxes?  My box works fine but is leaking.  Also, is there a place to order a rebuild kit as well?

I am looking for someone to rebuild my power steering box.  I contacted Jerry MacNeish, but he only rebuilds manual boxes.  I have considered doing this myself, but there seems to be more moving parts in this thing then my entire motor.  It works fine, but leaks like a sieve.  If anyone knows of someone, please let me know.

580  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need 67 Camaro Pic for September Homepage on: August 30, 2006, 02:12:40 PM
The first usuable 67 Camaro pic gets to show off their car for the entire month of September on the homepage.  Also, send in your Camaro pic of either 68 or 69 as well.  They will get posted in the upcoming months.  Also, for the month of December, I would like to post a pic of each year Camaro that is decorated for the holiday season.  I will select the best one of each year and that Camaro will be the special holiday homepage pic for the entire month of December.  So decorate your car.  It can be as simple as a wreath on the grill or get imaginative. 
Send your pics to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks guys

I am doing a pro-tour project and just about ready to order wheels.  I am thinking of 18" wheels.  How big of a tire can I fit on a 69 Camaro and still look cool and not TOO big.  Also, what  backspace/offset do I need to fit under a factory rear wheel well?

584  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Anyone ever used the brush on/spray on sound deadener. on: August 07, 2006, 09:22:45 PM
Okay, so this is not quite a Camaro subject.  But it is for my 69 project.  Has anyone used these spray on sound deadener to quiet the car.  The claim seems to be quite high.  Does this stuff actually work?  Or is it a waste of money?

Here is a link to the website selling the quiet sound stuff.

any opinions greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / VIN vs. build date...do these add up? on: July 15, 2006, 02:16:10 PM
Okay, I was just surfing around ebay for the heck of it looking at Pace Car stuff. 

I found one Pace Car that is in really rough shape but looks all original with a build date of 04C and a VIN of 627765
ebay # 230005425510

Another Pace Car had a build date of 03E and a VIN of 627047.
ebay # 110006584976

My Pace Car has a build date of 04C and a VIN of 636285.

If these numbers are all correct, then from the last few days in March until sometime in the 3rd week of April (over 3 weeks time), only 718 cars were built.  However sometime near the end of the 3rd week of April (within 7 days) 8520 cars were made.  This does not add up.  Any explanations?
