Hey all, just wanted to post a few pics of my car.  Down to the wire, but managed to get it completed enough to get into the Autorama in Utah.  Ended up with a 2nd place finish in my class (68-72 restored)... a few little things to take care of if I show it again...   Thanks for looking! Ed

Ok, well it's good to know that there is consistency within GM which supports this!  Thank you for that!   
Turns out the dome light was an aftermarket that my uncle put on the car in the early 70's.   (he remembered it after I shot him a pic of it, and retracted his original born with statement)   But it did look pretty cool!  Of course I went back to original Smiley

Wow, body looks good from the pics!  How are the floorboards/trunk?

Resolved!!  Replaced  the Fuel Sending unit.  Appreciate all's input/help.  Two weeks till Autorama, and we'll see if I ever show the car again in a formal atmosphere.  Thought I should at least try it once! Will post some pics, and let you know how it went.  Thanks again. Ed

Hi James, I don't know if the production line emblems have a natural curve in them, but wish the repros did!  I broke two of the reproductions trying to achieve that curve for a tighter fit on the outside edges.... Cheap potmetal... finally gave up and am living with the small airgap between the numeral and body as it was getting expensive beating my thumb with a hammer over and over again....   Grin

Thanks guys.  Yes, there is no vapor fuel return line on the car. Running a '68 numbers correct Q-Jet.  Appreciate the info/help! Ed D.

Thanks Fellas,  no luck.... The ground wire is in the correct location according to the AIM, and has a solid ground connection at the terminal and suspect it's good on the sending unit end as I tugged on a bit. I tried alligator clip ground alternatives, and ther circuit is still wide open....   It's got to be the sending unit.  Good to know anyway!  Will get a sending unit on order, and drop the tank when it comes in...  I understand that the 4BBL cars get the larger fuel line tube (3/8") when ordering....    Any sending unit vendors you guys would stay away from, or recommend?  Here's one I found on ebay from Summit Auto that's priced reasonably.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/68-69-Camaro-68-69-70-71-72-Nova-Fuel-Sending-Unit-3-8-CAGT68-1-/221030543751?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A1968%7CModel%3ACamaro&hash=item3376727187&vxp=mtr#ht_1653wt_1362
Thanks again, Ed

Yep... I was thinking that the tank was insulated from the sending unit by the seal, but I guess where it spins onto the tank via the bayonette connection it would be metal to metal...   If that's the case I'm thinking it is probably not a ground wire issue as the tank support straps should be grounded, therefore grounding the tank..  But will give er a whirl and see what happens!  Thanks again Darrel, your help has been great!
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Fuel Gauge on: February 24, 2014, 03:41:26 PM
Just curious.... if it was a broken ground on the sending unit, should I be able to test this by grounding the fuel line tube coming from the sending unit (which I can do without pulling the tank)?  Doesn't it have the same ground potential as the sending unit ground?  I'm trying to remember if the ground is a lug next to that tube on the sending unit.... That would quickly tell me if that connection is bad/broken...
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Fuel Gauge on: February 24, 2014, 11:04:53 AM
Thanks Darrell, finally got around to troubleshooting the fuel gauge...  I separated the connector under the trunk lock/latch mechanism, and grounded the tan wire going toward the gauge... sure enough, the needle went ot Empty....  So it appears that I need to pull the tank, recheck the ground, and most likely replace the sending unit...  I should have checked the sending unit prior to installing the tank... shoulda/coulda...

Thanks again Bryon and Darrell,
The "guaranteed" cars emblem placement definitely seems how it should be...  so even with the D90 stripe, the emblem is closer to the front lip of the fender...... looks like maybe 1" 1/4-1/2".... man...... I'm conflicted knowing (what I think I know) that the emblem holes are exactly where they were when I got the car.... No fill in's for old locations, etc..... and the stripe is placed per he AIM....  Hard for me to draw any conclusions....  From what all the reponses have been, it sure seems like my emblems are in the wrong location Huh  That just seems so unlikely to me, knowing the history of the car....

Granted... the pics I shared above of the other cars with emblem location the same as mine are not guaranteed,  it still  leaves a nagging thought that there were possibly two locations for them  Undecided
