Gary,
You may find that those aluminized pipes are REAL thick.  The clamps are going to be struggling pretty hard to make them seal right.  I ended up having to MIG welding the joints on mine.

32  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How big of a tire will fit on the front of a 69 on: February 06, 2014, 12:24:42 PM
245-60-15's on 7" Rally Wheels here.  I had to bend the lower edge of the front fender extension/moulding forward a small amount.  No permanant damage and clears/looks fine that way IMHO.  The inner side of the tire can touch near the subframe at full lock left or full lock right some times but on my driver car, it just does not matter much.  I would not worry but maybe some of you would.  I might go with 235-60-15's next time (but that might not ever happen).

Have you considered the shock absorber differences?  69 uses staggered shocks so you might want to use the non-staggered 67 bottom plates?

Just to add something to the discussion and respond to the earlier requests....This is what I got when I sent in my money for information on my Corvette.  If we could only have THIS for our Camaros - OMG!

In all honesty - My advise is to look around for a better core.  This one will cost too much and take too long to do it right.  It is worth more as a parts car in my opinion.  Sorry.

Whats the plan?  Are you going to break out the MIG and re-do it?  It looks pretty bad.  Been there-done that.

Smiley  I did it for my Corvette and it was almost as good as a window sticker.  Hope this is close to what I got for the Vette.  Well worth the cost.

I think i have those same traction bars. Mine have 2 vertical beams and are HEAVY.  Took them off and put them on the shelf!

Great car!

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: December 26, 2013, 02:16:42 PM
I knew a guy that had a similar '67 vert, bright blue, 6 Cyl, don't remember the transmission but it had NO options to speak of.  It was an early '67 pilot run car. One of the first Camaros ever built. Cool car but not particularly valuable over any other original base trim level '67 Vert.  This one was rusty and would have needed a LOT of work and cash to make it right.  I would love to know if it was still around.

The GM pan is a quality piece.  It's basically as good in quality as the originals with the slight exception of the one I bought a few years ago was "Made in Canada".  It came with a heavy tough black paint coating on it.  I would buy one again without question for any build that could use it.

The Z/28 service replacement pan is still available from Chevrolet.  It now comes with the later "thick" style front seal surface in the front now but otherwise it is a direct replacement.  About $130 bucks or probably a little more these days.

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where to find 69 Camaro taillight chrome trim? on: October 25, 2013, 09:32:47 AM
Are those part of the style trim group?  I think the base tail lamp lenses do not have those 2 strips but I may be mistaken?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: New 69 Z28 302 rebuild, dizzy has rev limiter. What is the best RPM limitation? on: October 22, 2013, 02:55:21 PM
I run a Crane CD Multispark box that is triggered by NAPA high RPM points firing a stock coil. The crane box is hidden where the center radio speaker would be.  I have the adjustable rev limiter set at 7200 RPM.  The valve train is pretty stout and with the box set to 7200 RPM max, the fun is there and the springs should last a long time. This setup does not run high voltage through the points so the contacts stay clean.  No need to precisely set dwell and no condenser is needed either.  You can easily crank down the RPM limit with a small screw driver for "Valet Mode" if needed. :~D

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Master Cylinder Secondary Piston on: October 20, 2013, 06:55:49 AM
I do know that NOBODY sells the secondary piston for the 1-1/8" bore MC.  Not part of any kit, not available by itself either. I know I tried.  My MC was original and I wanted to keep it.  The solution was to buy a brand new cheapo master cylinder and take the guts out to put in my original re-sleeved core.  You may need to consider that route if you can't find one for your 1" bore setup.  It is surprizingly inexpensive that way.  Just throw the left over casting in the trash.

I would be looking for a bad ground.  Start with the tail lamp bulb socket grounds and see if that is the culprit.  Add an extra path and see if it helps.

You can change out the flasher pretty easily to check but the bad grounds are my first guess.
