91  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Order status "Echoes Of Norwood" on: January 27, 2013, 08:04:59 AM
As many of you probably know I have written a book  documenting the history of the Norwood Ohio GM Assembly Plant.   Pre-order sales have vastly exceeded my expectations so –We did the math and calculated that we actually ran out of the first batch of the special paper that will be used for the initial print run with this past Friday’s listing of orders. 

All books ordered after 1-25 will ship as part of the second paper order which should only delay shipment by a few of days at the most.

As of right now all orders should ship either at the start of the week of February 4th or if part of the second paper batch- the end of that week.     

Ironically John Z’s order  will be the first book printed on the second batch of paper.   Thanks for the order John! Smiley

China.... I had several major publishers after the book but in the end all wanted to print and bind in PRC.  I said NO.

95  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Does anyone sell original style (R59 & R89) battery cases - empty? on: October 09, 2012, 06:15:17 AM
I did one a few years back an an R-79 battery case that was OEM and dated to match my car and the tooling to make the reproduction was out of service and not for sale-so I got tired of waiting.

It can be done-but the work is not for the faint of heart. 

First you have to recover and neutralize the battery acid with water.  Next place the old battery upside down and flush it with water again.  Check the PH to verify that the rinsate is neutral.

Remove the bottom of the battery case with a cut off tool at the bottom seam.  You need to make multiple cuts here as the bottom is secured by internal plastic reinforcement panels so it will come off in pieces. 

Now with the bottom off -"break" the battery internally by using a hammer and bar to remove the interior plates which you will need to literally fracture (or grind up) I used a drill and a large bit here- the content which is removed then may also need to be neutralized-check your PH. 

What you are left with then is an empty shell with seperate plastic compartments-which held the plates which then need to be removed too, a Dremel with a smaller cut off wheel works here.

The now empty display case will have internal prongs connecting to the original posts that you can drill holes in to mount your internal jumper cables to-that you will also need to fabricate. 

An OEM replacement battery for a Mazda Miata is perfect as you still retain enough weight for the ride height and still keep the CCA needed to spin the engine over.  Be sure to use a set of terminal covers on the new battery to insulate the connections.

Plan on 8-10 hours or so to get this done. and wear the right PPE for working with Acid and be sure to protect the case exterior from abrasions while the work is ongoing.

I use this arrangement for shows only and would recommend disconnecting your battery when when in storage or in transport.

I agree that will likely be a rebody.

Are you talking about the L-78 Mule that was tested at IMS and returned to Chevrolet?  That car was not delivered to the speedway for pace duty.  Is that the one you are talking about?    If so even by Fisher Body build# IMS #92 is still the eariler body build up.

101  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 27, 2007, 08:48:18 PM

What #3 car are you talking about.  IMS Photos place IMS numbered car #92 as the pace car for both restarts.  The Back up car was IMS #90.

Please clairify.
