This pic is of the non-string older GM WStrip. It illustrates how nicely it compresses. It's the same piece as in my previous post.

How do we know these are actually 68 Camaro seats with optional headrest as opposed to 69 Camaro seats with 68 seat covers?

The chrome bars are different. Check out the headrest data.

Here's a pic of the GM Wstrip without the string.

GM Parts Direct has them-$75. I just sold one I had for 20 years. There was a number embossed on it somewhere but I can't recall the details. One of the others will undoubtedly add info.

The pic of the Corvair shroud you posted is not the same as the Cam. shroud. Corvair grooves in spokes do not continue to end and there are no notches on the inner perimeter where the horn cap goes. Pull them up side by side and you will see they are noticeably different. If yours is bad it will take time to prepare it prior to chroming. You can do all that yourself, or burp the coin to pay someone.  Mine was in poor condition as it came from a tired parts car I had. Farewell, Scott

I have one on my 67 and no, they are not the same. Look in the S.Wheel data to see what's different.

I think you should black out the rockers. But that's me.

That's good. Sorry I have not responded.... Some adhesives are like what you describe and not limited to shrouds. I had one that was not adhered well but the glue was not easily penetrable, others fall off.....S.

67 deluxe has a connector in the trunk. You may want to check that.

3M makes it as well as others. Tape off the top for insurance and after you get an edge up apply the agent and let it work. Naturally I cannot see it so I don't know how well it is adhered to the shroud. If it's tight then you might smoke it trying to get an edge up first. One wrong move and the slightest kink will appear and in the trash it goes. If you force it at all you'll ruin it. Another option: You say the shroud is junk so carefully slice off the back in segments with a die grinder. I just did a Monte shroud and the edges were loose but center was not. Patience is the key element.  It's really no big deal. Giddy up.

Get some release agent. Carefully pry up one end slightly. Using a putty knife and applying the agent, work between the two pieces. Do not pry up as you will bend it and the result will  not result in happiness. I have removed them without release agent with no damage. Use your best judgement.

You've got to begin testing at the battery and proceed from there. And you are bench testing the starter and re-introducing it to an unverified system.
748  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: getting close to paint on: February 03, 2009, 06:03:34 PM
E-mailed you more detailed procedure info. and options
749  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: getting close to paint on: February 03, 2009, 03:31:11 PM
 It sounds as if you are jambing, assembling, backmasking, then shooting the outside. As opposed to painting with the nose off and painting the shell with doors on, inside and out in one shot. The latter will leave no tape lines in the jambs and is closest to factory procedure.. If you are going with the first route, one procedure is to tape close to the edge and just pull the tape back a touch to prevent a hard line when jambing. If you do get a hard line it's no big deal, you simply cut it when you final sand. Piece of cake. Why overspray on the panels making more work when you don't have to? If this is not clear I'd be happy to pull some paper off the machine and send you a pic or two.
 Keep in mind if you use a sealer much darker or lighter than the topcoat the tape line visiblity in the jambs will be increased. Using a tintable sealer reduces this problem. As well as rolling the tape. There are other tactics and this would get winded so I'll stop here for now. And I have no idea to what level you are taking your project nor it's value.

Best to do a search on "battery to starter voltage drop". You'll get many sites. Too much to list here. One thing: Testing the starter as you did will only tell you if it spins, not how many amps it is drawing. You can still check the connections and voltage at the terminals I stated to eliminate problems in the wiring harness circuit. I'm not an electrical guru, simply forced into diagnostics for same reasons as you.
