1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 396 Tire Size on: March 22, 2010, 05:31:51 AM
Gary, Thanks for the reply.  I always believed the tires were D70.  However looking through the Assembly Manual I noticed it called for E70's for the 396 cars.  In my manual it is on pg 74 (UPC 4 Ref B4 B8)
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1967 396 Tire Size on: March 21, 2010, 08:25:33 PM
When the 396 option was introduced in 1967 was the tire size increased from D70 14 to E70 14?  I just noticed in the Assembly Manual that it calls for E70's on the 396.  I am specifically interested in L78 optioned cars.

Thanks for the help.

I have a Backyard Buddy lift for about 4 years now.  I am very happy with it.  It is a high quality lift but they are not cheap.

Checking in.  Let me know if I can help with anything.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: License Plate Restoration on: January 10, 2008, 02:38:09 PM
In CT, we are allowed to run a license plate from the year of manufacture of the car.  Well, I have the plates that were on my car when it was originally registered when new, but they are in pretty tough shape.  One of them actually has tears in the metal around the mounting holes.

Has anyone had their old license plates restored?  I see that there are quite a few places that do this type of work, but I wanted to get some feedback from people with experience. 

Thanks,
Jeff

There was a guy in New Haven, CT that did an OK job for me a few years ago.  I will try to dig up his contact info and send it to you.  Also, I did not know that you can run the old plates in CT.  I have been doing it, but, I figured I would just take my chances.

OK thanks.  The rear antenna has been there since day 1 as far as I can tell, so the AM/FM had to be added later.

Thanks for the info.  Here is a link to a picture of a 67 AM/FM on Ebay which confirms what you are saying about how to identify.

I am not looking to buy a radio, but I have a 67 with an AM/FM with rear antenna.  I am trying to figure out if the AM/FM was added at a later date.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 AM/FM and rear antenna on: January 03, 2008, 10:35:35 AM
Thanks, that's my understanding also.  Anyone know how to tell the difference between a 67 Radio and a 68?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67 AM/FM and rear antenna on: January 03, 2008, 09:38:22 AM
Was it possible to get the rear antenna with AM/FM in 1967?  I think I saw something where it said that the rear antenna was not available with AM/FM.  Also, are there differnces between 67 and 68 Radios?  Thanks for the help.  And while I am asking questions does anyone (which vendor) make a decent repr rear antenna?

JphnZ.  Thank you very much for the information, the help is greatly appreciated.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Spatter Paint on: November 08, 2007, 07:24:35 PM
John Z.  Does you car with the houdstooth trunk mat have a rectangular sound deadening tar type material mat glued on the trunk floor where the trunk floor starts to slope up to go over the rear axle?  If it does, was the mat applied before or after the spatter paint?  I have a 68 deluxe interior car that has the sound deadening mat but at one point in its life the trunk was resprayed and so was the mat.  I am restoring the trunk but don't know if the mat gets covered with the spatter paint.  Thanks for the help.

If anyone is interested here is some info on seam sealers from 3M:
http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=11714

It sounds like the "08505 Fast 'N Firm Seam Sealer" may be the one as it sounds like it is the correct color
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Oval floor/trunk pan plug sealent. on: August 07, 2007, 11:59:08 AM
I went to the auto paint supply shop today.  They did have the 3M brushable seam sealer, but he said it was available only in a quart can.  I bought a quart of it and it is a gray color and I have no idea how I would apply it to get the correct application.  I will look around a little more to see if I can find the right stuff.  At this point I will even consider the "wrong stuff"  as long as it can appear correct, if anyone has any suggestions.
