106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Thoughts on cleaning an intake. on: February 27, 2011, 12:59:54 PM
How would you handle an Edelbrock endurashine finished intake.  Endurashine peels off if its exposed to gas or antifreeze.  Will media blasting be powerfull enough to take it down to bare aluminum?  P.S stay away from the endurashine finish....go with polished alum.  if you want bling.

Thanks Ed,

Looked around but didn't see the thread you sent.  Your referral is real helpful.  Think I'll make a black nylon/plastic insert ( vs felt) & glue it in.  Like the idea of routing a/c hoses through the old blower motor hole for a cleaner look.

108  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Air Conditioning Center Dash Vent on: February 11, 2011, 05:24:44 PM
I'm installing air in my 68 SS coupe.  The two piece center dash A/C vent assembly I purchased comes without spacers behind the bezel/valve.  Does anyone know where I can purchase something similar to the factory 3891762 spacers?  Or, what they look like so I can make some?  Thanks

There is a parts dealer in San Bruno,Ca. called Steve's Camaros that's great to do business with.  He's lots smaller than Rick's or Classic, but really knows first Gen Camaros, & stocks good quality stuff.  Has a web page  He used to drag race Camaro's and has built many.
110  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Dash Pad Restoration on: January 31, 2011, 01:45:44 PM
I need to restore or replace the dash pad on my 68 coupe.  Any recommendations on the best place to find a good quality replacement.  I have all the catalogs: Ricks, Classic, Year One, NPD, etc., etc. but not sure who has the best.  Or...should I send it to Just Dashes for a rebuild?   
111  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Gas Tank on: January 14, 2011, 05:10:11 PM
Have not found any tanks over 18 gal standard size.  Would like to get more range (20 gal) for long trips.  Plenty of good 18 gal. repros, but not seen anything larger unless you want to install a trunk mounted fuel cell.  Trying to keep the original look.  A local shop can build a custom original looking 20 gal tank, but real pricy.
112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Gas Tank on: January 14, 2011, 12:58:46 PM
Looking for opinions regarding replacing the fuel tank in my '68 SS.  Has anyone changed out to a larger capacity (i.e. 20 gal) that still mounts in the same location & uses the same filler tube/cap?  How about orig finish vs stainless steel?  Thanks.
113  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Exterior maintenance - wax/polish on: December 20, 2010, 12:55:11 PM
Looking for opinions on what's the best wax/polish for non clear coat exterior paint.  (Sorry to you guys in the East & Mid-States......out West some of us are still driving our Camaro's....between rain storms).  Know there's lots of different opinions on something like this.
114  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Gas tank on: November 12, 2010, 09:24:49 PM
Over at someone suggested using a "Gas Buddy Aluminum Nozzel Boot Holder (  Has anyone used this device?  Remember I'm in Calif.  & have to deal with the rubber vapor gadget on fuel nozzels.
115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fan Shroud Gap Question on: November 06, 2010, 11:20:09 AM
Agree with Dutch, your fan should be half-in, half-out of the shroud.  How about your lower brackets?  Does the lower portion of the shroud fit into the factory brackets properly (so the shroud is tight against the lower part of the radiator)?  Not an expert, but seems like the upper shroud lip should be further forward on the radiator.
116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Gas tank on: November 02, 2010, 09:48:51 PM
When filling my 68 with fuel (in California) often have difficulty with fuel leaking between the filler opening and hose nozzel.   Does not seem to matter how tight I hold the filler hose against the filler opening, or how slow I pump the gas.  Anyone know of a device  (or some trick) to stop the fuel leak during fillup?
117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Dash Pad removal on: October 21, 2010, 06:19:36 PM
Want to remove my 68 dash pad & send to Just dashes for restoral.  Whats the best way to remove it?  Prefer not removing the radio, heater controls, instrument cluster, etc.  Is there an easier way?
118  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Radiators on: October 13, 2010, 11:58:11 AM
Thanks Kurt & JohnZ for all the radiator info.  Want to keep as much of my 68 stock as I can, but still have good cooling.  Think I'll replace the current 4 blade with a 5 blade clutch fan setup & see how the temp looks in extended periods at idle/in traffic.  Can always add a larger core or alum radiator later.  Alumitech has one that can be painted gloss black & looks somewhat like the old Harrisons, or maybe go with a larger Harrison repro.
119  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Radiators on: October 10, 2010, 12:40:28 PM
Converting my 68 SS 350V8, 4sp to air conditioning (Vintage Air). Need to change out the radiator & shroud to air (23" wide core).  Looking for advice on the best radiator to buy.  Plan to install a 7 blade, clutch fan.  Looked at alumitech, be cool, griffin, etc.  Do some cruising i.e. Hot August Nights, so the engine will running at idle /low speed for extended periods.  Would like to avoid electic fans if possible, but may need to install a manually controled pusher.  Any input is appreciated
120  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Clutch Fan disengage speed on: September 22, 2010, 11:43:08 AM
Does anyone know the approximate RPM that a 68 radiator clutch fan disengages.  I'm converting my 68 350 no air to a Vintage Air setup & will be installing the ac radiator & shroud.  Considering a 7 blade clutch fan instead of an electric.  Thanks.
