That tells me the weather has improved in your area enough where we should be expecting to see pics of yours on the road, right??
( hoping your getting close)

My Camaro preservation and re-assembly efforts have been delayed (probably until past July).   Two weeks ago, I decided I needed to *finish* the restoration of a '57 Nomad (that was delayed after most body work completed around 20 yrs ago.. Smiley ).   My goal is to drive it to the Chevrolet Nomad Association (CNA) Convention in Chattanooga TN in mid July.. Smiley
and it's going to be EVERY DAY between now and then trying to meet that goal.  I've got a few pix made the past couple of weeks on Photobucket if you want to take a look.. Smiley

Two weeks into it..   13 weeks to go...  Smiley
What in particular are you looking for when you come to Charlotte? 

Complete interior kit (red/black), front end rebuild kit, all suspension bushings, body mounting rubber, and a few odds and ends, although I am still sorting thru and itemizing all the parts I have from 20 yrs ago.. Smiley   Fortunately I have new glass and all my chrome was redone back then... and I have lots of NOS parts to use in reassembly.

Dave- I sent you an e-mail.  Give me a call and I will share some information for you.  Doing it yourself is always an option too.  Here is a link to a guy who can sell you a kit.

Thanks,

Jerry

That works.  I've done it when restoring a '55 Convertible with a friend, BUT... if the glass you purchase has the mfg logo already 'etched', then removing that etching will leave a visible 'distorted' area on the glass.   You should try to find a glass that not only matches your original factory glass in tint and thickness, but also that uses a painted/baked on mfg logo, as that one will be removable (with effort) but leave no residual bad effect.

  I damn near spit my coffee out onto the keyboard after seeing that picture.  Shocked

"At 10PM she is a 2......at 2AM she is a 10"

Mike....  if you EVER see that as a '10'..  even if fully asleep at 2 am..  then I no longer wonder how you can see old undercoating out of a can and think it's factory paint..  Smiley

This site has been a REAL education. I am a RURAL "Hillbilly", if you will, and have no interest in Suburbia or the Urban culture. Having said that, apparently there is a definition for "bumber" in the "Urban Dictionary"! (told you this site is a real education) Read it for yourself and I can see where this term fits in with 1st Gen Camaro lovers! Seems one goes with the other, at least to me! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bumber  Bumber=Lover of Boobs-go figure,lol. ....
.... Below=example of BUMBER

Bentley!!   *L*   Did you REALLY post that pic?HuhHuh       *L*
Gary, first explain what *L* means? I do not want to have to go back to that Urban Dictionary site! If the pic got a laugh or a raised eyebrow, then, yes, I posted. No offense to anyone ,I hope.?

*L*..  just means I'm laughing as I'm trying to type....      *L*

Mike, Did you buy your car new?  if so, then I won't argue with you..  but I can assure you from having scraped it off the bottom of many old chevys, 25yr old undercoating is HARD as a rock (unless it gets soaked by a solvent like gasoline etc).  That 'lumpy' crap on the lower portion of your gas tank doesn't look like any 'paint drip' I've ever seen; paint runs and drips off and doesn't lump up like that.   Undercoating is much more likely to lump up.   

....Scrape some off and do a test .....?
984  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Hickory GT race - 6/9/69 on: March 26, 2014, 11:18:24 PM
The 'GT' racing, such as at Hickory (an oval track), was sponsored or sanctioned by NASCAR from 1968 thru 1970..  for pony cars.   Wiki has a little on it here...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_American

Some of the same cars may have raced in both, probably as an experiment, or just an opportunity to race, but I don't think there would be a lot of similarity in the racing, or the car prep, between the two.

Guys like Gary will happily pay $6500.00 for that pile simple because it is Hugger Orange!

LOL!  Grin

Paul

now Paul!   Is that fair?   Smiley

Actually I did 'meet' on the road today a good looking H.O. with white stripe Z28 (at least to zoom by appearances)... Smiley
986  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: tank restoration on: March 26, 2014, 09:24:31 PM
That lumpy 'paint' you refer to, sure looks like the old undercoating I've seen on many many cars..  Smiley
987  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Lower Rev LO rod for '69 Z28 (late) on: March 26, 2014, 03:28:42 PM
My 05E Norwood Z/28 came with the BB '5776 rod from the factory.
                                                                       
Very interesting..     How long have you owned that car to know that it 'came with it' from the factory?   If so, taht makes 'two possibilities' that they may have installed 5776 rods on Z28.   I wonder if there are others??   Anyone else?  Please speak up.. Smiley
988  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: markings on fender extensions on: March 26, 2014, 03:25:14 PM
69Z28RS...I did download  'light image resizer' and now have pop ups coming up on every web page I visit. I uninstalled it and am now scanning my comp trying to get rid of whatever else came with it that did not uninstall. I did downsize my pic with Easy Thumbnails to 640x480 so it would post.

Charley, I'm sorry that you had issues.  I had none, but I only loaded the resizer and used it 'free' for a few weeks, and liked it so well, I 'bought' it..?
989  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Trans-Am cheating fact or fiction ??? on: March 26, 2014, 03:15:13 PM
It isn't 'cheating'..  it is 'creative interpretation of the rules'...   just as Smokey said.   And regardless of what anyone says, EVERY Racer I've ever known did that to the extent of their imagination and engenuity.  In my mind, it's NOT cheating if the rule book doesn't address an issue and you take advantage of it before or better than the next guy.

Over time, as the racers find the 'holes' in the rules, and the rule book was tightened up, the rules got better... Smiley

I can remember sitting in the race shop listening to four or five racers, reading each rule very carefully, 'word by word'... looking for a loophole..   It was very interesting.. Smiley      (Same thing tax lawyers do with the tax laws.)..

Tried to load a "427" in crayon from a Yenko but once again the pic won't fit on this site.

Charley,  download 'light image resizer'..  you can download it free for personal use.   It works great and lets you turn the reduction in file size you want.  The image size will not be affected, and the loss of image quality is not really noticeable on these forums (if you don't zoom in). Smiley
