1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hours of body part install on: September 17, 2014, 01:28:29 PM
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.

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.

Running 215/70 R15 with stock suspension  on Cragar SS rims.  No rubbing, etc.  but tires stick out a little further than stock.

Which vendors carry both diam. springs?  Many only show one diam. choice.

Doesn't the spoiler equipped trunk lid use a different diameter tension spring than the non-spoiler lid?
10  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.
11  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,

Totally Stainless in Aspers, Pa. 1-717-677-8811 (totallystainless.com) sells a 5/16-24 x 0.7 flat top carriage bolt.  It's part number 2-0773 and is intended for Ford stepside rear fenders.  I ordered a few, & the dimensions are approx. 11/16 diam across the head, and 3/4 in. from the head to end of threads.  It's in their on line catalog.  Cost me all of .78/ea.

For those of you that used a carriage bolt with the head ground flat, what size (length & diam) stainless bolt did you use?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: storage on: October 09, 2013, 12:29:54 PM
Question.....  I've heard its better to leave the battery connected, but on a charger/maintainer during winter storage...vs disconnecting the battery?   I usually keep mine connected, but on a maintainer.  Makes it easier to start & run through the gears (with the garage door open) during winter.  With my car, seems to start better if I crank it up every 7 to 10 days.
