271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro passenger door mirror location on: December 06, 2011, 10:59:54 PM
I have a remote drivers mirror and I have never seen a matching passenger side mirror. Does one exist?

I agree, the repros out there suck...or at least the last time I tried to fit one, which I will admit has been awhile.  I have a 69 Camaro and I have 3 of the 4 needed in original GM wheel wells, one of which has not been easy or cheap to get.  If anyone has a passenger rear and would like to part with it, please email me.  I am willing to pay for it and don't expect it cheap.  Also, if anyone needs a GM driver side rear, I have an extra and would sell it to a needy party.



I agree I installed a set on my car they seemed like they were made if thick tinfoil. Of course I foolishy tossed my old ones knowing I was getting new ones. A lot has been learned about after market parts. At first I didn't get it, but now only original is the way to go. Only one or two of the front holes lined up. They also have a very cloudy finish, Even my originals were brighter, probably because the originals were stainless. Live and learn as they say.

274  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 6 cylinder to 8 cylinder conversion. Looking for advice & suggestions on: December 05, 2011, 03:19:23 PM
Have you tried Team Camaro?  They do more of the conversions and modifications there than most of the members here.  Also, you might want to put this under anther topic like modifications.  This isn't a rebuke, just trying to help.

Yes I have a thread going over there as well. I just thought I would check here as well as I have found this site to be very helpfull with some very noligable folks.
275  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / L-82 vs LT1 Which would be better for my project? on: December 05, 2011, 03:43:20 AM
I am building a 69 Z 28 clone. I am looking to do it on a budget if possible. I would like the car to apprear correct for the most part. I am open to suggestions of all types. Motor will be dressed stock 302 for the most part. No overly concerned with the internals. I would also like to build something that will give the project as much value as possible. I am not looking for a money pitt project. Looking to spend wisely, get as much performance as possible for a weekend driver. will have a Muncie M20 Trans, 342 373 or 410 rear gear, Chambered exhaust.

Which is the better motor combo for my project. I am looking at a few different motor options. I want to make sure I buy the right set up for maximum value and quality.

This L-82 is an original bore Corvette motor. Currently a short block. Needs to have cam and heads installed. Heads are 492 Angle plug or 186. This motor would be oil pan to intake. This package would cost $2500.00.

The other option is this 1970 LT1 same angle plug 492 heads or 186 heads. Oil Pan to intake, except blanced & blueprinted. $4000.00.

Which one is the better deal and better way to go for this project?
276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 6 cylinder to 8 cylinder conversion. Looking for advice & suggestions on: December 05, 2011, 03:25:12 AM
I am planning on converting my 1969 - 6 Cylinder 3 speed auto on the tree, with power brakes and power steering to a Z28 Clone/Tribute. I am installing a Muncie 4 speed and console as well as a in dash tach. Just curious what I need to change wiring wise to complete the conversion. Do in need a need motor harness and under dash harness or can I just add wiring or plug in sub harnesses to the existing harnesses?

The Motor will be a 350 LT1 with a M20 trans. Also as part of the conversion I will be upgrading to front disk brakes, front & rear suspension including front coils, rear leafs, diff, steering box, gas tank.

I am wondering is if anyone has already done the conversion and has a list of all the parts required and or can give me a heads up for what to look out for, pitfalls/potential challenges.


Thanks

With the 12 bolt, I assume it's an LM1?

Gold and RS - nice combo!

Yes it is. It has around 5,000 miles on a rebuild and I believe it's the original engine. I don't' see anything on the stamp pad so I'll have to do some more searching for the engine stamping.

Nice car. Check out this Gold Camaro. Might be a nice color for your car. I love the column shift. I have one to.

The car in the pit stop photo above is a true '67 but it has a '68 grill in it to help it look like the twin of the other Penske team car, which was a true '68 model.
The '68 Sebring race was the only race that year where Penske used this '67 Camaro. Hopefully that answered your question.

Thanks Jon. I guess I should have asked if they ever ran the 67 with 68 doors or thge vents windows removed. Thought I saw  pictures of the 67 like that, or would have been the 68 with a 67 grill?

That is my all time favorite Camaro, followed by the 69 model, then Smokeys 68. Just can't get enough of these cars. I have 1:18 scale models of all three still in the boxes. One day I want to build a 68. Just curious why there are pictures of the 67 with 68 doors, or were those 67 doors with the vent windows removed.

Thanks Paul my car was painted almost a year ago. I am thinking of doing the wet sand & polish myself. I have never done it before, but it sounds expensive to have done by a professional. I am going to research the process and tape off the edges so I don't burn through. Wish me luck.
282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My '68 Camaro In Synergy Green on: December 02, 2011, 07:04:36 PM
That Camaro looks great. Very well done. I've seen some people end up with what I call tiger stripes. The even flow on your car is fantastic. I actually loved the look of my car in the silver base. As for the question of masking, we use a foam tape, round and about the diameter of a penny. The round shape allows a soft blend, If you watch the video you might see the tape in the door jambs at the quarters, with the doors out slightly. This gives an even blend with no need to sand after.

Thanks Paul I appreciate the feedback. I have learned so much so far building this car. So much more to learn yet I am sure. I am thinking of wet sanding the car and doing a cut polish on it. Any advice and what can I expect in terms of improvent from what I have now.

The Cortez Silver uses a darker base, which gives it that great silver color. The Synergy Green uses a sliver metallic base as the green is a candy with pearl tint. The sparkle you see in the green is actually the silver base. I have a '69 SS waiting for my next project. An original Cortez Silver car that someone painted an awful red color. One of my favorite original colors.

Hey Paul here is a picture of my car that a a friend painted for me. How does it look to you. Looking for an expert opinion.



284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My '68 Camaro In Synergy Green on: November 30, 2011, 06:58:39 PM
Hey Paul my car was painted BC/CC. A dark grey epoxy primer was used. Just curious if the silver you sprayed forst would have made any difference on my paint job. My car is Cortez Silver. I like Cortez Silver but find that some cars seem to have a more Metallic finish. Just curious how that is achieved.

Thanks
