16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Console seat belt clip finish on: October 05, 2013, 09:17:16 PM
Was the seat belt clip in the 68 console painted black or bare metal finish? 

Appreciate a response from someone with an original console.

17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Strange hole in LH floor pan on transmission tunnel on: October 02, 2013, 09:58:35 PM
I found a hole near the LH floor pan on the LH side of transmission tunnel about the size of a dime, was this a factory hole and any idea what it might have been used for?  See picture and hole below the gas pedal area

Thanks in advance

Jim, that was just what I needed.  Based upon your reply I removed some of the flat black paint with acetone and a cotton ball and under it was the original semi gloss finish.
I now have another part to paint with Sem's Promax  Semi Gloss b!ack

If someone has an original console with an automatic from 1968 and can post a pic of the black console shift plate that the lens fits into between the horseshoe shifter that would be greatly appreciated.  Mine appears to have more than one gloss of black, higher gloss on the flat ends and side and flat on top around the lens.  Is this correct and should the raised edges show the chrome which is how the reproduction piece is sold?  It is part # 3921804 D55 in the AIM.  I am not sure GM would have gone to the trouble of having two different gloss finishes on this part.

Yes, not listed in their catalog or online.  It is a 1" diameter hole, I picked up a rubber grommet from Lowes which I will try and should keep the wire from rubbing on the bracket, but prefer original if possible.

22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Camaro Center Rear Bumper Bracket Grommet on: September 20, 2013, 09:43:29 PM
Any suggestions on where I can get the rubber grommet for the center rear bumper bracket on a 68 camaro.  The license lamp wire goes thru the bumper bracket which has a rubber grommet.

It is GM 1367472 and is listed in the AIM on page 172 UPC12 C4 Rear License Lamp.

A source for a used one would be great also

Any help is greatly appreciated

It comes as part of the 5 piece inner fender seal kits, you attach the rubber to your metal parts.  Don't lose the L-Shaped clip as they are hard to find

Most vendors carry them, see link to classic muscle in NC below

I had my original mirror re-silvered by Chaudron Glass in Baltimore MD 410-685-1568.  Old school company, visiting their office was like going back in time.
Cost 40.00, I delivered item to them and picked it up.  They only re-silver mirrors once a month.
Very happy with the results.  I used a heat gun to soften the rubber and remove the mirror glass

Mike, I just checked out the pics of your restoration, nice job! Its not too often you see someone work out the details of a non-high performance model. Good for you! Can't wait to see it back on the road.

The video I posted of the engine on the dyno was riot, since it was a base 327 engine.  Glad I did the dyno, as full line was clogged and the carb had a few minor issues and I was able to touch up the engine before reinstalling in the engine bay.  At least it is broken in and ready to go

I too have a 1968 Convertible, RS 327/210hp w/ factory air and PG trans along with PS PB that has just completed a frame off rotisserie restoration and is back in my garage waiting for the dash, interior and top to be installed.  My vehicle was a good candidate for its second restoration, as it only needed a new trunk pan and rear floor pans as I had replaced all sheet metal in the mid 80 when GM parts were cheap.  In its current condition I had no trouble insuring it for $50K.  Impossible to put a fair value on yours without pictures and determining the extent of rust, but I can tell you unless you can do the body work yourself, restoration can very expensive.

The 2bbl carb is also unique to AC cars and can be difficult to locate, so I hope you still have the original one.

If you car is original I would be very interested in see original pictures.

I purchased these used over the years, they are suppose to be for a 67, body mount positions 2 and 3.  I discovered the 68's had a different head.  Can anyone with a 67 confirm these are correct?  They also have the RBW head markings still visible on some.

Ed can you confirm on the convertible that the harness will go up & over the wheel well as in U25 and is between the trunk hinge and quarter panel area. 

Thanks

I am in the process of installing my rear harness, does someone have a pic of how it gets routed on the LH side inside the trunk?

Cannot find a page in AIM for the rear harness

Much appreciated

Mike
