Some of this may be helpfull, be careful using tape, I pulled some rubber loose with tape, and be careful tugging to hard on the edges.

I've never had that happen using 3M masking tapes, but I have had issues removing other types of tape...   Duct tape can remove paint when you remove it...  so be careful, and don't leave it on too long...

If you can't get the new rubber seal to 'stay in position' long enough to close the hood, here's my trick.    Use a few pieces of masking task around the periphery to hold the rubber outward as it's supposed to be, and then close the hood on it for a few days.    After a bit, you can open the hood, remove the tape and it will be 'trained'...

L78 Novas have been 'King of the street' in many locales.. Smiley   I remember one in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area when I was in the USAF there.  There were many $$$ spent on Hemis, Z28's, etc..  trying to beat that car!!  (not sure that any ever did).. Smiley

Your Nova is exactly the kind of car which appeals to me (based on your description).. I'd preserve it, drive it, but keep it as original as possible, but not restore it.. just do the things it needs and enjoy it and allow others to do the same!

White Post has done two master cylinders for me over a 20 yr period, and each time I asked if they could/would do it in stainless; each time, they replied they ONLY use Brass.  I'm sure there's some reason for that; my suspicion is that it's a bit softer than SS, therefore easier to hone to the correct diameter (but I'm only guessing).  The only other aspect I can imagine is possibly thermal expansion coefficient differences but both have been used successfully in many MC, WC, and calipers...

  I've told my wife when I die that she is to put me inside it with one hand on the shifter, the other on the wheel, drain all the fluids, and dig a big hole on our property, drop the car and me in, and cover it up.  So...don't ask if it's for sale.

'67 SS/RS 4K 4-speed
'69 Z/28
'69 Nova SS L78 4-speed

that's a beautiful '67 Camaro... I really like it .. same color as the FIRST new '67 Camaro I recall seeing when a friend's parents bought him a butternut yellow/black vinyl top '67 SS350... Smiley  (I was SO very jealous!).. Smiley

so what about the '69 Nova... Smiley   is it for sale? Smiley
52  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Camaro 1969 SCCA homologation sheet on: February 09, 2015, 10:33:36 AM
As I understand it, Chevrolet's 'brakes' were one of their advantages during their winning '68/69 seasons, but of course AMC won the '70 series *(using the Girling or some other HD brakes?)...  Was the TA brake spec changes one of the reasons for the change from Chevy domination to the AMC win?

PS.  I don't think many of the '68/69 TransAm Camaros ran the 'factory installed' JL8 brakes; instead they ran the OTC service duty rear with it's heavier axles, bearings, and Positraction unit (along with the Corvette-type front brakes to go with it) during the '68/69 seasons.  If I'm wrong on this, I'm sure someone will correct me.. Smiley

There's lots to like, but .. he says it has 'a 302', rather than the original 302, whereas he makes strong 'original' statements on several other parts.  I'm guessing it doesn't have the original engine...?

I think you may have become addicted to 'changing your oil', Danny....  Have you considered an AA group?  Smiley

Actually, it's a Norwood car that ended up in California.  Wink

Paul

Doesn't Ohio rust fall off when the car is moved to California?? Smiley
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: True Z car Craigslist...Really? on: February 06, 2015, 10:26:51 PM
*shades of the late '70's*..  when every Camaro for sale carried Z28 badges..  Smiley
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: February 06, 2015, 10:24:23 PM
All those photos show the great effort Chevy put into it during the '67 and '68 years to ensure they had the '69 *just right*....  Smiley
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another Jewel on Craigslist on: February 06, 2015, 10:16:22 PM
It's a California car; so it must be in great shape and worth a lot.. Smiley
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Stinger Hood for my 68 in Australia on: February 03, 2015, 10:48:59 AM
I think it is just different approaches to the same issue; both approaches are drawing 'higher pressure air', but I'm hypothesizing that the base of the windshield, the higher pressure will be more consistent/stable than the direct forced air??  I've never measured, tested, or studied that.. it's just a gut feel.  

Maybe the direct forced air is why Fords 'blow up' more often than Chevys???  Smiley

PS>   After posting the above, I did a quickie search and found someone who had made some measurements comparing 'ram air' vs cowl induction (using an MGB test bed at up to 70 mph).  His testing at higher altitude Colorado showed the ram air to provide approximately 50% more 'boost' in pressure than the cowl induction, but of course that would vary depending on the car body shape, windshield angle, etc...
