Wow. Beautiful car! I'm guessing you won't be driving it. I love the white vinyl roof. My favorite of all time.

Are you in Legends?
X2 on that John! Great looking car and looking forward to seeing.
What some of us are doing is hitting both shows. Friday at Frederick and Saturday at Carlisle plus my ol' 69 Nova L78 survivor I sold in 83 is on display.

I usually pay the price of admission and put display only on the windshield of my 69 SS 396.  In my mind parking lot or Sonic style car shows are for socializing and nothing more.
Interesting, you do realize this thread is over 5 years old?Huh??

Tom, agree on obtaining Jerry's book/s but this might assist you in the meantime....
679  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z/28 Correct leaf springs, where to buy? on: June 12, 2012, 07:35:08 AM
Dosen't Eaton supply to the various dealers? Would they not be the most correct?
When I checked with them on restoring original leaf springs I found their hardware not to be technically correct plus I found one of our original main plies was cracked through the center hole. If I remember correctly Eaton mentions the hardware issue up front. A good friend purchased his from Heartbeat and the only major difference I could detect from originals was the missing GMC embossed logo found on the side of many leafs. Due to that review and discussions with East Coast Muscle Cars (they knew of several cars with them) I purchased a set from Heartbeat for our 68 restoration.

Looks good. That may be similar to what Chick used to repair/restore his original pad.

Looks good Mike!
I used this flexible rubber coating from Rustoleum Paul.

Looking forward to meeting you guys...


I'll see you there Eddie! Hey John, you bringing the 69 or the new generation?
682  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct dated wheel on: May 26, 2012, 05:02:19 AM
Most March Z's have Feb wheels.

Thanks......that's what I figured

Danny, what was the norm as Kurt mentioned does not mean yours are not correct. Are all 5 dated the same?
683  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Repo Kustom Header Differences? on: May 23, 2012, 09:33:16 PM
Chick, I saw yours and the ones on eBay, wondered the samething. Jon's answer above explained the reason for the differences. I broke down and sold my Smog System, after Jerry was here a few years ago, we had talked about putting the headers back on over the smog, he agreed, with the cowl plenum, headers were the better choice.

Did you send yours out to get coated or do the yourself?


Sorry for the delay in answering Paul as I was away for a couple days the end of last week..... Jerry recommended a guy who turned out was only about an hour away so I went that route. By the way just finished making my own set of repro white header gaskets. Used a picture of an original set to model after.
684  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Is my subframe saveable or beyond repair ??? on: May 23, 2012, 09:23:40 PM
Dave, I am not sure where you live however I have a very very clean 1968 camaro subframe there is no pit or rust on it at all I have owned it for 19 years it is in my heated and cooled basement, it does have some dents on the middle cross member (maybe from jacking) the mount hole are perfect it is from California, The best part is you can have it for free if you come and pick it up and promiss not to sale it for profit, it is free for your 68. The lower control arm bumps are correct for 68 camaro only. You don't even have to paint it there is not a scratch on it! other than the the bottom dents it is the cleanest I have ever seen, it is a bare subrame. I live in North Carolina.

Now that is what makes this hobby and the meeting of other car people so great. Good on ya Paul!
685  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Decal/sticker locations on: May 23, 2012, 05:52:48 AM
Welcome aboard first off and what a neat car you have secondly! congratulations........
Unless you plan on having the car judged I would not get too upset about the stickers as for the most part that is what everyone has been using and not very many know what is correct or not but as mentioned it would be wise to at least check and see what is correctly available. If you check Don's website you can see what he has to offer.
Welcome aboard again!
686  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 center dash panel on: May 19, 2012, 09:23:21 PM
I'd almost forgotten this one.
So, do you think all Nor and Los Camaros followed the same pattern, early and late?

Not sure of LOS cars but NOR cars seem to go that way. Our 01B 68 with console is just like Paul's and others, grained center panel with black ashtray. Oldie comes alive again!
687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: AMD Suframes - Quality, fitment, and finish ??? on: May 19, 2012, 06:56:59 AM
You could ask at Team Camaro or Team Nova. Subframes are not hard to find; and complete for less than their bare product.

Dave, I agree with Scott! Try locating a donor sub-frame as there have been so many modified Camaro's its usually not too hard to locate/purchase.
688  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Firewall Pad on: May 15, 2012, 07:27:37 AM
Thanks Mike for the pics as that is the first repro molded pad I've seen. Have to admit I was hoping it would be a little closer but it is still far better than the other plain non-molded pads.
Hey, liked your black socked feet as well..... Smiley
689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Battery Hold Down Clamp on: May 14, 2012, 08:20:29 PM
I have the "K" stamping but mine has been painted
My 9800 mile 69 and my 1100 mile 70 both have traces of black paint.
Obviously most have deteriorated to a degree, however just about all the orig cars I have certified have some traces of black paint.
thanks everyone for the input!

I would have bet money that others members would have commented by now especially when this is not a very well known fact one way or another. If you see this JohnZ what do you have on your Z and know about what they did back then.
Others please?
