I just saw this post on You tube. very similar to my White Z.

This one was sitting in Ohio, probably right under Bentley's nose... ::)

They are still out there. Nice find

No problem.
Oddly for plain jane cars, hardtops seem to eclipse convertibles right now in camaros. In early Mustangs the convertible was King for a long long time, within the last year or 2 fastbacks are commanding more money. (like for like condition)

  How much are they asking?

I just helped my neighbor purchase a 1968 RS convertible. I am in the know on prices after looking for him for a year.
For this car no more than 15k.
(btw his car had no rust penetration, just scale and corroded fuel and brake lines. $14k)

Looks good. I was unaware they made foam with the springs built in. I have re-apolstered Mustang seats, haven't had to do a camaro, (yet)

a great idea executed poorly...

Would be neat to see it done again with a new high end car, but this time air tight.

I love both of them. :)

(not sure about the gold though... :o)

I would run those as is. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Sorry if this was already addressed Steve, but since your car is a 12A car, and you don't know if it is a X66 or not, (I assume it is a Norwood car). Couldn't you just remove the back seat and look for the crayon mark of X 6 , or see what marks are there?

Sorry if I missed this but did you post a picture of yours already blasted?

Unless they were submerged or were very flimsy, I would think your originals would be fine.

General Discussion / Re: tires

If this is for a 1968 Z/28, it would seem the 15" Goodyear Widetread GT would be the correct tire to go with.

Refer to this thread

I think there is a couple of outlets that sell them, although they are not cheap.

Another idea for a soaking container would be those plastic totes that come with lids. You can find them in all sorts of sizes at walmart. I would think one of the medium long flat ones would work for an oil pan, you could do the top half, soak and then flip it, and have a little more room to work with it. If you got a deeper one, like what they sell for Christmas stuff, then you could soak and put the lid on it if you were worried about fumes/odor.

Bentley has the right idea though, there are many products other than evapo-rust that will get it done.

Sorry mis-typed. Should have read my own link.... :P

(corrected now)

DW is correct. As discussed on a prior thread, best to use the GOOGLE search box and start with CRG Camaro, and then your key word.

Ex: CRG Camaro Z/10, or CRG camaro stripes

The CRG search engine will give you results, but is limited. Google will provide much more results in the CRG data base.

Well done Kelley. Way to stick it out. Both you and our friend from Sweden making a Zl-1 tribute have much to be proud of this summer.

I also like the Cometic MLS head gaskets. Money well spent

Z11-69 Camaro indy 500 pace car convertible, White RS car with orange (z/28) stripes Cowl hood and orange hounds tooth interior.

and then in the southern region they offered the same paint scheme and options on a hardtop (Z10, although not officially tied into the indy 500.
