1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Who makes most accurate Spark Plug Wire sets? Also heartbeats transveres Muffler on: November 20, 2014, 11:57:30 AM
Danny, one of the best 67-69 Camaro suppliers is located near you, in San Bruno, Ca.  Talk to Steve or Mike at Steves Camaro Parts (they have a web site also).  Steve is an expert, not just for parts, but also anything else to do with Gen 1's. 
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New guy - Hello! Need opinions - is it a real SS? on: November 18, 2014, 12:08:45 PM
Re: hood & hood springs.  The SS hood is heavier then the regular hood...thus the need for SS hood springs.  If you are not sure it's correct, try opening the hood part way (in several different positions).  If the springs are incorrect the hood usually has trouble staying in place in the partially opened positions.

Would be fun to build a 6 cyl 1st Gen, and real tempting to add headers, dual carbs, etc.   Don't think bumper guards were an option in '68?

Since you live near Marin......there's a mechanic (Steve) who runs Northgate Automotive in San Rafael.  He works on many classics, including lots of Camaros.  May be worth it to talk to him.

KERR.....agree with others that you would be better off finding a body shell with minimal rust & work from that to restore your car.  MY opinion (based on building 8 cars) is that the labor hours will be far in excess of what's being quoted to you (by the body shop guy).  You need someone that can fit body panels perfectly, get the gaps correct, get the edges rounded properly, etc.  If you locate a used body or clunker with minimal rust, take an expert with you to look it over for hidden problems.  Out in Calif.  some body shops or custom car builders will go with you, for a fee, and give you a true picture of what you are up against.

I would keep these with the car show cleaning supplies......to use on the idiots that keep touching my car, or who wear those big a** belt buckles.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: body parts, am i over looking anything.. also... on: September 04, 2014, 11:58:32 AM
Are you going to do panel repairs, welding, panel/etc replacement yourself?  If not the labor costs may get you.  Have you considered a complete body shell replacement for 13-14K?

Good info.   Anyone know where you can purchase these? ......or are most of you making these from scratch.

Take a look at Julianos Hot Rod Parts.  www.julianos.com, & their seatbeltstore.com site.  They do custom lengths also.

In the past, no one manufactured replacement backing plates.  They are now available from several vendors.   You can try Lone Star Car Parts (ebay), or call Steve's Camaro's in San Bruno, Ca. (see his web site for tele #).  There may be other vendors if you do an internet search.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another Tire Question on: April 01, 2014, 11:33:46 AM
Running 215/70 R15 with stock suspension  on Cragar SS rims.  No rubbing, etc.  but tires stick out a little further than stock.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Trunk Spring installation on: March 04, 2014, 12:20:53 PM
Which vendors carry both diam. springs?  Many only show one diam. choice.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Trunk Spring installation on: March 02, 2014, 12:21:23 PM
Doesn't the spoiler equipped trunk lid use a different diameter tension spring than the non-spoiler lid?
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 350 engine - how to start on: February 19, 2014, 12:17:30 PM
Thanks for the input.  Mike & Steve....like your suggestions & will fire it up the way you suggest.  No internal modifications were done to the 350 before stuffing it in my "old" boat years ago.   Will provide serial #'s at a later date when I decide what to do with it.  Have a 350 crate engine in my 68 now (only 4000 miles on it).  Need to do some homework on the engine #'s vs build date for my 68....would be a great if there's a match.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 68 350 engine - how to start on: February 14, 2014, 01:33:55 PM
Have a (numbers correct) 68 Camaro 350 engine that's been in a boat for years.....time to put it back in a Camaro.  It's been sitting in the boat, unstarted,  for 8/9 years.  Fuel was drained, new oil put in (years ago).  What's the best way to prepare it for cranking/starting.  Don't want to damage the cylinder walls, etc,
