Be patient you will find what you want and not have any questions about the purchase. I am sure you are already doing this but surf, Team Camaro and The Super car site for parts. That is what I did and found good sellers.

Good luck

How much body work needs to be done?
What color are you painting the car?
Is the shop a collison repair facility or a resto shop of other collectible cars?
Is the shop going to completely disassemble your car place the body on a rotissiore?
Will you replace all the interior, rebuild the motor, tranny, replace the entire chasis components?

There is a lot of work to a frame off restoration
634  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Front Bumper nuts in fender extensions on: July 05, 2009, 03:05:39 PM
When I painted my car I lost one of the bumper nuts that is pressed into the lower fender extension. These nuts hold the outer bumper bolts to the car.

Does anyone know where I can buy just one nut? Or a few would be fine.

Thanks!

Here is the picture of what I need.

I just had my steering box rebuilt on my 69 Z and it is leaking grease from under the top lid. It appears that the guy who rebuilt it used form a gasket instead of using the real gasket. I looked online and NAPA did not list one of these gaskets. NPD had one but for $43!! I dont want to pay that kind of money for a gasket. Anybody have any ideas on where to look?

637  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Gas Tank on: June 26, 2009, 06:18:35 AM
I had to put a new tank in my 69 Z the old one had a hole in it.

I know that the tanks are suppose to be 18.5 gallons but I think mine may be a little smaller? It seems to fit like the original, but I recently put in only 12.5 gallons of gas in the tank while the needle was reading 1/8 of a tank? I would have expected to put in more like 15 gallons. I guess the sending gauge could be off or the needle off but was wandering if anyone else has experienced this.

Also my low fuel light use to come on at 1/8 of a tank and now it will not lite up at that level. I have not run the car with much less fuel than that so it still may lite up? It also use to lite up when I went around a turn with low fuel and nothing now. I did take my gauges out of the car when I did the work maybe something came unplugged? Any ideas on this would be helpful too.

Thanks,

Is there a way to tell if you have an original owners manual or a reprint?

Thanks

Pebble grain wheel, grab bar, pedal dressing, wood grain on wheel. I think you get all of that when you chose RS.

Thanks,

<<Jeg's sells a nice little vacuum canister that will let you use your power brakes and doesn't require a pump.>>

I used one of those on my tube-frame Grand Sport replica instead of buying a pump, and it worked out fine.

John that car is awesome. Do you still have it?
645  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: RS headlight washers on: June 18, 2009, 06:40:29 PM
Replaced the actuators, although my originals were still working and I still have them boxed up and stored away.  All of the hoses were replaced including the vacuum hoses that penetrate the firewall and connect to the headlight switch.  Repos were good and properly color stripe coded.  What I view as the potential weak link in the system is the relay valve.  Mine is original, still works fine, but it would be a very difficult item to replace.  I have to admit, I haven't looked in a whiile, maybe others have better/newer information, but the repo relay valves that I've seen in the past were not correct - service replacements that had a differing appearance.

As far at the straps, I tied down both the vacuum hoses and headlight washers in more places than the AIM showed primarily because from time to time in the past I had issues with the doors sticking in the open position.  It was difficult (at least with my ride) to keep the vacuum lines properly secured with just the original tie downs and core support clamp.  If the vacuum hoses slip out place, they can interfere with the doors as they open resulting in the doors binding agianst the vacuum hoses and remaining stuck open.   So....when I put everything back, I tied them down in a few extra places to ensure that there would be no interference with the operation of the headlight doors.
One more RS question. Did you replace your springs on the door mechanism? I did not and think that I may have a weak spring on the passenger side. The door opens and closes but is slow and I have good vacuum. Sometimes a little nudge gets the passenger side to complete its cycle. I am also going to recheck for binding and lube everything but I have done this once already and had no binding and the door opened good.
