I've got an extra cap. I'd have to find it and see if it has the rivets. No luck, it has the screws. Maybe I'll use that one and put the original in a safe spot.

Sure, I'll take a look. Actually I'm in Salisbury so it's closer to 3 hrs. It's a little further than I'd like but I'll look at him. Contact me at my e-mail, it's on my profile. Thanks

Probably the guy working at home with no spray booth.

If anybody knows of someone in the Charlotte area I'm looking for someone who can do quarters, floor and fabricate patches.

Thanks, that's all true. I gave my car and $1000 to some one on Jan. 22. All he did so far was replace the area of floor around the shifter with rivets. He does media blasting so no insurance checks there. I pulled the car out yesterday and will probably have to work out something with blasting for the balance of the money. I live near Charlotte and went into NPD and got a couple of names of body men. One almost worked out, he looked at the car, which by the way is just body and frame, set a date when he felt he could start work. I called then and he said he was tied up with something and I could take the car elsewhere if I wanted. I took that as he no longer wanted to do the work. Others just don't return your calls. Even went to one of the big restoration house but $75/hr and a talk with a former employee shot that place down. I've got 2 more places to try, that's why I asked about fronting the money, this guy doesn't have much history, says he just left NASCAR and more of a painter. He hasn't seen the car yet but wants $500 to hold the next spot. I've been burnt before by fronting money and am hesitant.  I've been trying to find someone for almost 2 yrs. I'm beginning to think I should sold this thing 20 yrs ago.

Trying to find someone to replace quarters and floor pans on my '68. Is it the norm to ask for some money up front? $500 to reserve the next slot and another 500 when the car is dropped off. Or should this throw up a red flag?
51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Read the specs on this one on: June 06, 2011, 09:50:02 PM
Is this guy making the best of a bad situation or what?  Read the specs for this SS.  http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2010-Camaro-SS-/170650112633?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item27bb8a1279

Nice ride Danny, a shame you had to lose it. I'll take a look at your list, Thanks. jbund49@hotmail.com

The more I thought about it, it probably is doable. The invoice didn't specify a Z-28 option but had "special rear springs" "power disc Brakes" and "special performance equipment" listed as options. Do you think this would work as documention?

OK thanks I've got that now. But riddle me this, can a car with a 12E build date be delivered on Jan. 1st, I have the original sales invoice dated Jan. 4, the day the car was paid for and picked up? Christmas was on a Mon. so the car would have to be built and delivered to Buffalo NY in 7 days.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early 68 Z28 engine on: April 25, 2011, 07:02:59 AM
I talked to the original owner. The car arrived at the dealer on New Years day, he took delivery on the 4th. I'll have to recheck build date when I get back home. Bodyman must have misread it as 12e. Owner swears that car came with a 2 bolt main block. He owns a speed shop and raced that car so he was into the engine. I'll be back in a week.

It has a part number but I couldn't tell you what it is. They were used on the Trans-Am race cars. I got that from a friend whose boss' brother worked on a Trans-Am team.

Thanks for all the tips, especially the assembly drawing. The front flange is there it just doesn't show at that angle.

I have this air dam that goes under the front of the sub frame. It's made of plastic or vinyl. Does anyone know how I can repair the tears at the mounting holes. Some type of glue, epoxy or plastic weld?

Well that's the issue. The block that was in the car when I bought it is long gone but it was small journal. I don't think 2nd owner changed engine, he sold it after a year, it wasn't very practical for him. I'll call the original owner on Mon. He owns a speed shop and raced the car so I know he had the engine out. With any luck the original block is laying in a corner.

Thanks, I've been to that site, also saw sites that said 257 was used in 68. Bought the car in '72, 3rd owner, original owner said he sold it with original engine. When I tore the engine down it was 2 bolt main small journal. So I bought a new 4 bolt block and built that up.Trying to decide if I should go for correct block.
