46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another question for the pros.... Redline tires from Diamond Back Tire Company. on: January 27, 2007, 01:13:12 PM
Nice color and luster. What system is it sprayed with, acrylic, 2pack, KOB?
How do the rear antenna and spoiler get along with each other?  Smiley

Thanks for the compliment.   I'm not sure of the system it was sprayed with, it's a two-stage PPG Deltron paint, base and clear. It was painted back in 1993.  It's an original GM color for 92 Corvette: Medium Quasar Blue.   

The rear antenna (which came original on the car) and the spoiler (I added) have a slightly tenuous relationship. Wink   Nothing a very gentle and slight "bend to the right" won't cure when opening the trunk.     I couldn't live without the rear spoiler.

I saw it in person at BJ last weekend.....it is a pretty little "plain-jane" Camaro. Cool   Loved the White with Red interior combo.     I'm curious, what were the not quite correct issues?

Coker now makes 'em too.   BF Goodrich RADIAL T/A:

http://store.coker.com/home.php?cat=393

I knew about the Coker BFG redlines....the problem for me is they don't offer a 255x60x15 (for my rears).  For my car, I don't want to have skinny tires on the back.  (or the  front)  The original skinnys look great on a concourse restoration..but my car is a resto-mod.

Thanks for all the input.  Cool

I want to do Redline tires on my car after seeing all the pretty Camaros at Barrett-Jackson last weekend....  I don't want to use the original (Coker) Bias Plys, I want to use the radial type Redlines.  Driving safety is my first concern.

Anyone familiar with DiamondBack?  Experiences?

Heres the link.

Heres a quick and dirty pchop of my car with Redlines...  Will this look good with my car?

Holy crap....those pictures scare me....
51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Body mount bushings.....how hard to replace? on: January 09, 2007, 11:44:45 PM
I would soak them well with penetrating oil for a couple of days prior to trying to break them loose.

An old trick....but a good trick.

Thanks again for everyones input.

Thanks for posting your experience Rich...   I'm sorta worried about tackling this due to the car being "finished" and running.  I kick myself for not doing these when it was gutted back in  93.   
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Body mount bushings.....how hard to replace? on: January 04, 2007, 09:44:42 PM
Thanks!   There is some surface rust on the bolts, I can't tell on the nut.  Will have to look closer.  It is a Cali car so hopefully theres no real problems.  Not sure why I didn't do these when the car was all torn apart and in the body shop. Huh    Oh well. 
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Body mount bushings.....how hard to replace? on: January 04, 2007, 07:30:08 PM
Howdy folks....I was tinkering around under my 68 last weekend and noticed all my bushings are in pretty bad shape (body mount)

How hard are these to replace?   Any reason to go with original style rubber or use poly?    Which kit is best...I've checked multiple outlets and they all seem to have the same thing.

Thanks.

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 2007 Camaro calendars... on: January 04, 2007, 07:26:36 PM
It's a nice calendar this year!   I like Dans photos over the Camaro calendar photographer of last year.  Incedentely, some of those pics are repeats from the 2004 Camaro Calendar.  One being the pace car and the other being the gold 2nd gen.  These were taken the same time my car picture was taken for the 2004 calendar...at the CCSD show of 2002.  I was hoping mine might make another calendar.  But really it was nice to have it go in once.  Smiley
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ...your opinion??? ...I have POP, ...car is for sale elsewhere... on: June 08, 2006, 10:04:27 AM
Wow...right in my backyard... oh well, too bad it's not for sale any longer.

Thanks for the info!

Well hey Kevin.  Grin

I noticed the ad for the car is down.  Anywhere I can still see pics of the car.  Where was it located in Cali?  If it's not "public record" thats okay.   I have a friend looking for a good 1st gen.

Thanks.

Personally love it....most exciting thing to come from GM in many MANY years.   Only thing GM is good for these days is rental cars.

Love the retro styling...which they claim it isn't...but it sure as heck looks retro to me. Wink
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rally Sport Vacuum problems. HELP! on: May 02, 2006, 10:25:41 PM
Thanks....but OUCH!  Over 400 bucks for a non-original system. Shocked   I'll stick with the PITA vacuum system.  Wink

Plus, it says it's for a 69...nothing about a 68.
60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: May 02, 2006, 10:24:03 PM
I don't drive mine nearly enough!   Shocked  About 800 miles a year sometimes less.

It's a stress reliever to get out and go for a cruise in the backroads/mountains of San Diego... Grin
