Well since no one else asked, did you take the pics? If so, how did you get in?

Yes.  The reason they are solely body pics is because NASCAR and the teams will not let you take pictures of motors or of anything in the fabrication area... for obvious reasons. These are car bodies for future races.
JR Motorsports does gives tours to selected groups, so I guess you could say "I know somebody".
They were obviously excited about his Daytona win, but that car is in Phoenix.

Thanks ,I'll let my body man know. I have both sources (laminated) for chassis and "engine compartment" finish per CHP and Skip Cain's article as well as the Camaro National's Seminar--could not find something as simple as under the hood--I know every finish down to every fastener but not that! It's getting re-assembled for the spray booth this week and he needed my decision  asap. thanks again.

I hear you! Sometimes, reading the index to a P&A is like reading another language...  Grin

I was questioned today about the proper finish under the hood, I'm sure I read the hoods were dipped in black primer than shot from the top covering the edges with paint. Now is 30% gloss an acceptable finish for under the hood sheen wise ? Or too much? Firewalls getting shot at that.

Nope... 60% gloss black underside of hood.

Well, at least the body...

So your panties are fine as long as their is no golden parachutes, but the bail outs are a necessity?
Next we will hear how we have to get away from auto unions and how their leverage has put the big 3 behind the eight ball.....
but we know that won't happen , to big of a voting block.  Cheesy

Okay, if we're going to talk politics and cars, then we need to keep up.  Read THIS. Michigan is well on its way to becoming a right to work state. And THIS, come to think of it.

Our banana tree was leaning over. I just realized it's loaded with bananas. It will be another month or two before they are ripe... Smiley
Hey Kurt,
Me encanta la fruta fresca en el mercado de San Josť.
Now, you're rubbing rock salt in the snow wound!

There is a reason central Kentucky is called cave country.   Wink  It may be solid ground 30 or 50ft and then there would be a hole from an unknown branch of a cave system and all it takes is weight and erosion.   Id be willing to bet that this will ultimately be explored.  They'll almost have to verify that there isnt more of these pockets under the museum.

You can tell from the pictures that there are caverns that go on down.  Gary may be right.  They may have to demolish the Skydome and start all over again.  Sad state of affairs....

It looked like that here in north Alabama this morning also, Phillip.. but it's warming up nicely, so I think the roads will be clear by mid afternoon.. Smiley 
that's the way snow usually works here..  Smiley

Here, too.  In fact, we're supposed to get rain tomorrow, which should clear the roads. Then, Saturday, the Camaro is coming out of the garage (I hope!) to a "First Time Showing" training event.

Now, I'm thinking about the folks up north in the US and across the pond in England's flooding.

Here we go again....
Fortunately, the Camaro is in the garage!

Jeez! That video is hard to watch. Does anyone really believe they can retrieve any of those cars? Or, will it just be a grave site with a memorial??   Embarrassed

I'm told that the Kentucky EPA prohibits leaving them in there due to the gas/oil in them (although I'm not sure that the lowest ones could be retrieved.. and they may determine that it's too dangerous to hook onto them to retrieve them).  Personally I hope they find a means to get the top ones out, and hopefully, if safety isn't an issue, then retrieve them all to be restored.  The only means I can conceive of how to retrieve them would be to disassemble a portion of the yellow dome, and use a crane to hook them and lift them out.   If they were mine, I'd sure go down there and hook them up (with appropriate safety cable/harnesses).. Smiley

I wonder if they keep only a few gallons in the tank at the museum? When we display cars at our convention center, they want them as close to empty as possible.  Anyway, one or more of those cars are bound to leak gas and fumes.

No biggie, you named them: mud flaps, steering wheel wrap, and passenger mirror.  I agree with Petes L48. Keep the passenger mirror.

72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear Brake Standard Diameter on: February 12, 2014, 01:03:15 PM
Section 5 in the Specifications at the back had (or would have had) some additional data, including torques and nominal dimensions of the brake drums and shoes...  It seems the '68 SM had a glitch (either in the initial release or ??)..

Gary, it would be good to have the charts that are in the 67 and 69 for quick reference, especially the torque chart.  I compared page 5-21 that Steve mentions in the 68 SM, and it is virtually the same as 5-22 in the 67 SM.

Think maybe the same guy that decided we didn't need options listed on the cowl tag in 68 was in charge of the SM?  Huh Grin Huh

Bummer! Thought that stuff only happened in Florida. Hopefully, the cars can be saved.  And, hopefully, John is still smiling....

Car looks good in pics. A few add ons, but that's whatwe did back in the day.
Posting the trim tag info could help us help you.
Does the PAINT position say N - 2?
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear Brake Standard Diameter on: February 11, 2014, 06:24:26 PM
I have a chassis service manual (68) and it has section 5 (brakes).
...a section 5 under Specifications?
Please post it....
