The Chevrolet dealer, and probably any parts store for aftermarket ones.... and they may all be made by the same company (Dorman?)..

Austin,

Your fan is the same, but not the clutch is it?   ie.  Is your 'fan to pump' distance on your clutch 1-3/8" or 1-5/8"?

Seems like a great deal for someone wanting an original 396 and 400 trans..  (with allthe attachments)..

An email from Heartbeat Camaro today described and listed his newest 'Mother load' of Camaro parts..

They might have bothered to spell it right ("mother LODE", not load), but it's a little late now.  :-(

I agree John..   in fact, when I typed it here, I first spelled it correctly..  then changed it to the way they spelled it.. I suppose they were making a pun..  meaning the lode was a real LOAD..  *L*

An email from Heartbeat Camaro today described and listed his newest 'Mother load' of Camaro parts.. JL-8's, cross rams, u name it.  he's got it all in NOS or used form....  I'm glad I don't need/want any of it because I surely couldn't pay the prices... Smiley
.. but maybe some of you guys can..?

I went and looked at the paint I used..  which was the closest color/shade to my original jack... and it was 'Rustoleum Gloss Arctic Gray'..  purchased at Lowes I think..

Clem,

Thanks...   It's pretty as a picture..  Smiley     Pass along to Brad that we are all hoping we will see it at the nationals one day...

I like the car. But some work has been done to it. Bottom of hood should be painted black.
6K redline?

Kurt,

Do you think the 'special paint' operation *might* have included the bottom of the hood as well..?   It appears to have been painted for a *LONG* time under there..    There's also the possibility that it was a special paint, but not *that* special paint at the factory... and the current owner is *assuming* that blue was the factory sprayed color...  Not many can look at a nice paint job and tell whether it's 45 yrs old, OR only 41 yrs old.. Smiley
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bumper Jack -- Original color on: October 21, 2014, 11:30:32 AM
Yes, it was light gray, but I can't tell you a paint code..  I was unable to find a proper original factory reference when I repainted mine..  I just found one that seemed a close match to an original jack/base that I had...?   
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 SS/RS spec paint on ebay on: October 21, 2014, 11:27:16 AM
It struck me as a car that had been loved and enjoyed over many years...  not as a show car, but as a 'member of the family' that you jump in and go do things..  and those kinds of cars get 'modified' in small ways
over that many years.. Smiley

The engine issue sounded to me as if it *could* be the correct engine, although I didn't see any images of the pads or dates etc...

I'm more attracted to these type of cars than I am to restored cars....   it's likely a personal problem.. Smiley

I think Im gonna do a LS swap with twin turbos to fill the gaps.  Once that is finished I plan on doing a suspension upgrade and shave the door handles, chop the top 2" and put recaro seats in and mini tub it for 20's
I don't think I've ever seen a chopped top Camaro.. Smiley     go see Jimmy in Ardmore.. Smiley

The factory pack for your paint might be a 'phantom, but I'd bet you mean 'fathom green' for your paint color?  Smiley

You can drive your car to a local paint shop.  Go to the one who sold the paint for the repaint if you know it.   Otherwise, I'd suggest a PPG dealer (because that's my fav brand). Smiley     They can take a reading off a nice clean spot on your paint, and mix up a small batch of paint for you and either put it in a spray can, or provide it in a small can for use with a tiny brush.  My supplier will mix as little as 2 oz, which typically fills a typical spray can (if that's what you want/desire), but for small chips, using a toothpick or a tiny tip brush will work best IMO.
