106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 custom interior center dash bezel on: May 04, 2011, 02:25:48 PM
Still looking for a good walnut grain center bezel.  Have returned 5 so far (different vendors, but bezel only made by OER).  The stick on walnut "contact paper" is really bad.  Does anyone have experience with restoring one of these, or know of someone who can put a new wood or vinyl veneer on? Thanks.

Are your front discs aftermarket?  If so, it's a good idea to use the same brand front & rear.  Most conversions require a min. 15" rim w/min. backspacing requirements specified by the manufacturer.  Some would argue its a better investment to increase the size of your front disc's vs install disc's on the rear.

Have you thought about just using 15 lb roofing felt (tar paper).  It's a lot cheaper.

Has anyone tried affixing a thin wood veneer to the center trim panel to restore the damaged "fake" wood grain...and then staining it to match the factory look (followed by a coat of satin varnish)?
110  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 custom interior center dash bezel on: April 14, 2011, 08:10:19 PM
My 1968 woodgrain center dash bezel is shot.  I've tried two repro replacements so far, and both are very poor quality (the stick-on woodgrain is real bad).  All the parts dealers (Ricks, NPD, Classic, Firewheel, etc.)  seem to use OER as the supplier.  Anyone know where I can get a good bezel, or someone that can redo the fake woodgrain?  This is for an a/c equipped car.

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 camaros.net 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.

113  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 stevescamaros.com.  He used to drag race Camaro's and has built many.
115  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?   
116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Gas Tank on: January 14, 2011, 05:10:11 PM
Tom,
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.
117  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.
118  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.
119  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Gas tank on: November 12, 2010, 09:24:49 PM
Over at camaros.net someone suggested using a "Gas Buddy Aluminum Nozzel Boot Holder (www.wingstuff.com).  Has anyone used this device?  Remember I'm in Calif.  & have to deal with the rubber vapor gadget on fuel nozzels.
120  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.
