Restoration / 1968 Custom interior seat back emblem backing plates
« on: July 31, 2010, 05:06:20 PM »
Anyone need correct backing plates for 1968 custom/houndstooth seat back emblems.  I was unable to locate these, so had a local metal fabricator make a die/stamp, and manufacture me some.  They are the correct shape to recess the emblem, are made of galvanized steel, and are correct size and shape of original.  Only difference is emblem mounting holes are round (vs square on factory).  I'm not in the parts business, but figured since I had to pay for the stamp anyway, maybe someone else can benefit too.  Estimate cost would be $11.00 ea.  Can provide photos if anyone is interested

I'm restoring my 68 deluxe interior.  I'm missing the backing plates for the deluxe seatback emblems.  Can't find them in any catalogs.  Does anyone know where I can obtain new or used ones?  Does anyone have a drawing/sketch with dimensions so I can make some myself?  Made some flat backing plates, but they don't recess the emblems properly.

Maintenance / 1968 non air heater blower speeds
« on: December 23, 2009, 08:32:30 PM »
1968 non air SS 350.  Only getting one speed when I operate the heater fan switch.  Replaced the fan switch and resistor unit (in the heater duct box).  Wiring seems ok at the resistor and switch.   Read other forum comments regarding an in line fuse on air equipped, but don't see one on my non air.  I get continuity & different ohm readings ok at the heater switch.  Any suggestions?

Still looking for help re: using 68 Muncie shifter/linkage on an older Muncie 4speed with speedo cable on the left side (see previous post).  Does anyone know if it will work ok, without changing out the tailshaft to a later Muncie.  My 68 SS xmsn was recently rebuilt, so don't want to change it out to a correct numbers matching unit (yet).  Thanks. 

Restoration / 68 4spd xmsn shifter
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:00:13 PM »
My 68 SS has an older muncie m21 4spd (casting 3851325).  Has the speedo cable on the left side & appears to be out of a 1963-65 chevy/nova/etc.  Since it was just rebuilt (over $1900), I'm not ready to replace it with a numbers matching xmsn(yet).  I'd like to change the linkage/shifter to the correct 68 muncie. Does anyone know if the 68 linkage/shifter will work ok?  Thanks

Restoration / 1968 SS hood hinge spring
« on: July 28, 2009, 04:30:26 PM »
I'm trying to determine if my 68 SS w/SS hood has the correct hood hinge springs.  My car has 26 wound coils per spring & holds the hood up just fine.  In aftermarket catalogs & at a recent car show I've seen 28 coils.   Now I see in some catalogs the replacement non SS spring has 22 coils.   What's correct?

Restoration / GM Mark of Excellence Decal
« on: July 18, 2009, 03:50:17 PM »
Follow up to an earlier question on the Mark Of Excellence Decal.  I understand most/all 68's did not have the decals.  I'm helping a friend with a 67' RS & he wants to put the Decal(s) on.  In photos/books/e Bay postings we see many different locations on the door jamb.  Some show the bottom of the decal level with the screw.  Some show the decal between the door latch & the screw.  What would be correct.  Regarding my 68 SS.  Have a Muncie M21, but it has a white shift lever ball...thought the correct was black with a chrome base.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help.  Looks like I'll be making one myself.

Restoration / 1968 seat back stop cable
« on: July 03, 2009, 04:05:07 PM »
Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement seat back stop cable and cable to cushion screw?  This is the cable on the passenger side bucket seat .  I have the upper cable attaching screw.  Also, wondered what brand, & paint color # is preferred when respraying a black SS grill (non RS). Thanks.

Restoration / 1968 correct ss grill

Restoring my 68 SS & unclear when the LA factory changed grill colors.  My Camaro was built during the 4th week of April, 1968.  It's a non RS. Should the grill be silver or black.  Thanks

Restoration / parking brake release handle - 68 Camaro
« on: June 16, 2009, 04:02:12 PM »
I'm replacing the Parking Brake Release Handle on my 1968, and am unclear how it should be fastened.  The replacement handle does not appear to have internal threads.  Is it a friction fit, glue on, or am I just not seeing the threads?  It's a correct handle, not a generic one.   Thanks

Restoring my 68.  Does anyone know the exact placement of the Mark Of Excellence decal on the door(s).  How many inches down or up, & left to right?  Do both doors have the decal?  Some literature shows driver's side only.
