My 67 Firebird seats (came with the car) had the version in the lower picture.  I had one seat with and one w/o the plastic protectors...

'67 Firebird seats (came in my car) had press on knobs.  The tilt latches have screws.

Oh, and there are a number of Camaro clubs in the area.  That could be a great way to check out cars and get to know the people.  Plus, depending where you live, Steve at Steve's Camaros is a great guy with lots of knowledge.  If you go in to buy parts and it's slow, he will talk your ears off! lol

I've seen the car in person.  It may have been me that flagged the ad.  They post about 10 copies.  ANNOYING!!!  I gave Ed some info on it.  It has an Offie cross ram on it and matching hood.

So, kind of decoding your email, you own a plane?  What is it?

68 ~11C (no TT) = 68 17

Thanks everyone!!!  I'm going ahead and reposting this info on the TC thread so the OP over there knows what is up.

OK.  Thanks guys.  That is what we all thought.  But the BB water pump "kits" only have one stud/washer/nut.  That is for the alt. bracket, correct?  Or is the stud used for the ground and a normal bolt for the alt. bracket?  Or two studs???
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 BBC Battery to Engine Ground Wire Location on: March 09, 2012, 02:35:18 AM
Hi,

Where and how does the main battery ground cable attach to the engine? 

The AIM only lists "V8" when mentioned in UPC 12 and C60.  No specific mention/picture in the L34, L35, and L78 UPCs...  I have a few pictures saved of restorations and member's cars.  But no good, in focus pictures of the cable.  Most do go to the water pump...  I would assume that since V8 is stated, that BBC does actually go on the water pump. 

If that is correct, is the cable and star washer added under the mounting bolt?  Or was a stud and nut type set up used like on the alt. bracket on the other side?

Someone else started a thread on TC on the same subject.  But no answers as of yet...

Thanks!
Chris B.

The AIM does the same thing in it's pictures of the spare tire and jack mounting...FWIW.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Seat foam and springs. on: March 05, 2012, 10:57:23 PM
I've heard of stuff like that.  Also, the back's pivit bolt/stud being torn out of the bottom frame.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: March 05, 2012, 10:55:17 PM
I would tend to agree.  It would make it less busy with all the stuff one has to "see through" in order to figure out what is really going on with the jack and components.?.?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: SB upper Alternator bracket removal on: March 05, 2012, 01:14:11 AM
I don't see why not.  Just don't let the alt. go floppin' around.  That might be a little rough on the case... ;-)

The tank was unpainted.  The straps were semi-gloss black.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Floor Pan Tunnel Reinforcement Plate for Hard Top on: March 05, 2012, 12:37:29 AM
There is a support ring/plate under the tunnel that either the auto shifter body (one version) or manual shifter boot screws into.  The console is mounted via a bracket and riv-nuts.  The shifters just pass through the console and some trim pieces. 

The AIM has some pictures of the reinforcement in the auto trans section.  I just fabbed up about 1/2 of mine that was hacked out at one point when someone installed an inline shifter...  I'm pretty sure someone posted measurements of the tunnel cut out/opening over on Team Camaro.  As far as the reinforcement itself, I don't remember seeing anything there, though I was just browsing.  If you buy the boot trim ring/retainer or auto shifter, the reinforcement closely follows that shape (I don't know that for a fact on the auto).  It's just a bit wider than the boot trim and has a slight U shape treatment to the edges.  You can see that detail in the AIM.
