Research it and make your list. Plenty of info both here and team camaro on the subject but it would need to be put together. I have paint markings found on my spindles, driveshaft, yokes, and what appeared like a crayon mark going down the bell housing and the bell housing was only painted several inches in and not all orange but it had some nice runs. Grin Even found a pic of another orig. camaro prior to restoration that had exactly the same type of mark and bell housing was not all orange. As far as paint marks I agree there is a lot of graffiti going on but one also needs to realize that long ago restorations were not at the level of what is trying to be achieved today. I for one could not see the paint marks on any of our driveshaft bur careful soaking of the driveshaft in a five foot 4" tube with evapo-rust did the trick and bingo. I never did or thought of doing that type of stuff 15-20 years ago.

Hi Joe and first off wanted to welcome you to the CRG! You can find a lot of information also using the search key. Very common topic over the years. Here is the recent thread on stripes! http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8486.0
Welcome again,

Sorry about the first picture as it should show the upside down "T" to the left of the green stampings and it's on the picture but when I post it, it is cut off. Tried with no text and it showed upon review but when posted same results. Gotta figure out how to do this correctly Grin

This is a 69 Firebird local car it's entire life (know the car from new) and took the pics as the trim "T" was upside down on both sides of firewall. You can see how faint the green is compared to the orange. And the "T" is under the trim tag on the left side.

Chick....just now looking at the filler tube seal on the cap, is that a rubber gasket with a thin metal support underneath?  My original does not have any rubber on the seal area....it is all metal with a raised ring that seats on the filler tube.

Yes Jerry, those service replacements have a very thin rubber gasket on top of a thin metal support. From your picture I thought that was similar. Will just be on the hunt for a nice original cap!

Good info Pete and may check into that just to help change over one of the two already painted.

That's a C3 Corvette oil line - are you sure it's the same length as the Camaro line that the Camaro vendors sell? You'll also need the grommet where the line passes through the firewall.

That is what I wasnt sure about, I just read a few old posts with guys recommending/posting a link to Paragon.  Thanks

You might have misunderstood if it's the same recent post by Jeff where he asked about the ferule on the end vs. the NOS he purchased and then another member happened to have a Paragon line (for his Corvette) that he posted a picture of how the ferule was or seemed correct but the line length was not discussed to know if they have something adaptable. Is that the post your referring to?

GM #3910043; listed for $17 back in '93.
Yep, got three of them rascals and they all have screws instead of rivets and purchased in the late 80's I believe.
Now how can I change that screw to a proper looking rivet Grin
833  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Need help on orig. 68 std Gas Cap on: August 20, 2011, 04:59:50 AM
You did just fine Jerry! Now I know what to look for. Wonder what that white cap came off of or maybe that is a later service replacement for Nova??? Now I gotta find an orig. for the car...... Thank You!
834  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need help on orig. 68 std Gas Cap on: August 19, 2011, 09:58:36 PM
I do not have the orig. gas cap and have no idea where it is but I did compare one NOS cap to what I believe to be a Nova gas cap. Notice in the pics the Nova cap (kinda of a white) has a much wider piece that is used to open/close and the underside has the screws with a plate but the NOS has no plate. On the Nova cap the center part of the underside is riveted to the plate and is held in place by the two screws going to the exterior handle where the NOS center part is riveted to the large round sheet-metal piece. By the way, that rivet process causes the large round sheet-metal plate to be warped. Other words, it does not lay flat whereas the Nova cap does.
Can anyone confirm what their orig. gas cap handle width is? The what I believe to be a Nova cap is approximately .670" wide and was wondering if an orig. 68 gas cap had the same handle. Also would greatly appreciate a picture/info of what the orig. is like underneath of the part that goes in the filler neck. Is it similar to the one with the screws/plate? Again, pictures of an original would be greatly appreciated. I completed some searches and found many posts concerning RS caps and 69 caps but not std..

Did you try any searches before starting the post (finds like Mark supplied you)? Helps to search out and see what you can find and then go from there.

Our orig. 68 Z/28 rear hose cleaned up pretty decent especially the hose part with the red writing.

The only problem with re-chroming the lid is the silk screening underneath.....it will be gone.   You would then need to send it somewhere to get the silk screening redone.  I think Paragon Corvette can sell you a reproduction, re-chrome your existing lid, re-screen your existing lid, or re-chrome and re-screen your lid.  Their Tech telephone number is  (810) 655-4641 (this is not a toll free number), give them a call and they can fill you in with all the details...might want to check with them before trying to get it re-chromed elsewhere.
According to JohnZ and others Paragon sells an excellent repro or as mentioned have your orig. rechromed per Jerry and Paragon is an option along with what Marty suggested. And agree 100% with Marty that whenever wherever you can use those orig. parts as in most cases they are more correct. The base is an easy one to restore and you will have some self satisfaction.......

I'll have to give that a try Marty as is surely don't cost much Grin
I've been using Stoner's glass cleaner for years and never found that to smudge like the windex and such. My wife even started using it several years ago along with micro fiber towels.
839  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Muncie rebuild - need info for which MFG to go with on: August 01, 2011, 05:38:55 AM
Hi Joe,
Doing searches on camaro.net I found that Jody's Transmissions had helped a lot of people so I contacted him and great guy. I purchased my rebuild kit from him. Give him a call and he can explain about the kit he sells. Also, you give him a call and he will help a member out with a rebuild problem or some how to questions. That's nice to know and have. One example about synchronizers; they only use forged synchro's, not like most of the eBay Muncie kits that use cast synchro's. Here is his contact information:

840  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Leaf springs - need advice on: August 01, 2011, 05:27:20 AM
Hi Joe,
I'm rebuilding mine and have already tore them apart. Friend of mine purchased the well done repro's from Heartbeat but he purchased the repros because of broken plys in his originals. Since mine are original, and many have the "GMC" logo (both main plys and some others) I wanted to keep them. It's some work! Guys I have talked to asking about the height etc. said you gotta put them in and just see how it sits. Seemed to sit OK when I took the rear out so we will see. Somewhere in my restoration thread I have info on our leaf springs. By the way, getting ready to get back on them soon.....
