X2 for another welcome!
Some things that you will need if not already in your possession for finding what hardware is used where is an Assembly Instruction Manual (AIM), and I highly recommend a AMK catalog.
Welcome again, and if you complete a search you will find several older threads on screws and hardware. Here you go!;all

How about printed in USA!

Chick thanks for posting.  Does your 68 still have the original decal?  Does it have the same?
Darrell, wish I could answer but chrome lid and decal on mine were gone due to air cowl plenum. The picture posted is from a 69Z survivor and thought I had a picture of a 68Z survivor but not in my pic files. Steve would know as he checks a lot of survivors. Smiley

I do not think either are 100% correct.  Bowtie Muscle got the font correct for the "302" and "Turbo Fire" but missed out on the size and on the "290 Horsepower" The other is not correct at all to me.

Side question.  

Did the originals have "printed in the usa" on them?  I cant remember ever seeing it on one.  I guess because everything back then was made in the USA.

19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Soft seal weatherstripping from NPD on: January 13, 2015, 08:34:14 AM
Does anyone have experience with the current Soft Seal door weather stripping from NPD. I need the trunk seal, both door seals and the header seal that goes on the front of the convertible top. I believe in the past Soft Seal just did not compress properly and it was hard to shut the doors. They were not latex but something else. Any thoughts on this is appreciated.


Not aware of any changes made to their door w/s and the this past year at shows no was stating any change so assume its the same dense material.  If it changed a lot of folks would like to know as it was difficult to work with and has had more than one person frustrated.

The later service replacement at top.

Brace is still very NOS available and cheap so I can't see it being all that rare.  Maybe the design has changed?  I would sell it if the money was right. 

The wiring clip is pretty cool. I would not let it go without doing some more research about it.  Those kinds of pieces are pretty hard to find when you need one.  If you "need" one, you $$$"NEED"$$$ it. :~D
Yes, GM a year or so ago still had them but the one end was now a slot instead of a oblong hole. The original braces are easy to find as they were used on so many applications but as noted the clip was tossed or missing a lot.

Thanks all. Smiley
Bullit, just one, of the engine bay prior to re-build. It was super clean! I mean like crazy clean for an original car. She obviously took very good care of it. I wish I had more pics, but that is the only one.

women can be 'obsessive' about cleanliness, even if they can't hear the noises telling them something is wrong.. Smiley
Welcome!  Congratulations on owning the best year Camaro, 1968!  Wink


X3  Great looking 68 and welcome!
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 15" X 7" Rallys clear everything on a '68 on: January 09, 2015, 06:12:47 PM
Here is the ad.. I think I better just try to find another set of 15" X 6". I was just excited cause this set-up has rims, tires, trim rings, and center caps reatogo.. D

One advantage of 15x7 wheels, besides their width compared to your 15x6's, is their availability.   The 15x7  Rallye wheels (FW code) were used on Monte carlos etc through the '70's and are much easier to find, and MUCH cheaper to buy... Smiley

True Gary and there were a lot of 15X6 service replacement wheels made (70's & 80's) also that of course do not have a DF stamp and can be purchased fairly inexpensive.

One factor for sure as many have advised is the tire size especially in the front as tire will rub when turning hard left or right. Old school but I still like the nostalgia look of slim wheels in the front and then the larger 15X7 or even a 15X8 with a larger tire if it fits in the back.
Have fun and know you are!

Great job Bryon!
X2 Bryon! Nicely done!
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: in case anyone is interested on: January 03, 2015, 05:02:02 PM
this a post from a auction appraiser. 
The six figure Z's are no more. $60k for a nice restored car is top of the market regardless of what people are asking
For the archives (because the ebay ad will disappear) Winning bid was $59,100

Clem, you think that was all the money for your old car then?

Interesting to see what the market says later this month in Scottsdale.
Clem is a little light on value IMHO. 69 Z's have appreciated approximately 18% compared to 2013 and top cars are bringing significantly more than $59,100. I have a hard time believing it was actually sold at that value and if it was, it was a steal.

Another area of stamping differences!

Other 12/1/67 dated wheels.

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: DF rally wheels on: December 31, 2014, 11:48:14 PM
On my 03C ,68 z ,the wheels just have DF by the valve stem.When I buy new tires I check the dates. Mitchell
There are several versions of DF wheels during the 68 model year so it depends on when your car was built to determine what wheel is correct. Most early cars will have the large Font DF with no date like the 67 Z/28's. The earliest dated wheel I have ever noted around the valve stem was 12-1-67 with the small size DF font but oddly enough the next dated wheel around the valve stem starts in March68. DF wheels in between those dates had the large DF font and only a date on the inside of the hub as Mitchell above probably has. Even large font DF wheels differ on other stampings as a change in stamping took place in Feb68 so probably Mitchell's large font DF wheel is different then early 67 or 68 Z large font DF wheels. Note also how the early dated small font DF wheel has the K1 and the year (7) above and below each other.

Original valve stem length and micro winged weights used. Note the micro wheel weight is on an original 68Z spare tire dated Jan68 that never hit the road (Lg font DF).

Well, after 2 days of texting back and fourth, we agreed on a price.

I should have it home is the next 2-3 weeks.

And so it begins...

Congratulations Chris!
