You are gonna think Im crazy but I used this and it is holding up great..  Plus I did the entire car for right at $100..  Roughly 5 rolls with do the floor, roof, doors, sail panel area & quarter areas..




Here is my 67.

Also he needs to run a vacuum advance if he is going to drive it on the street.  It is dumb to run without one.  I have read several posts on ported vs manifold vacuum as well.  I can make either one work.  But the best for driveability would be manifold.

Cook ,you are right on and made me delete my post !  Grin

Lol yeah this was just fresh on my mind since I was just dealing with the same thing on a car I was tuning last weekend.   Wink

He is running too much timing.  Inital can be whatever but the total (I would think) would be in the 35-38 range.  If he sets his total timing to say 35 degrees and then checks the timing at idle that will give you what the mechanical advance is in the distributor.  If he is running 45 at total and is inital is 25 then that means his mechanical advance is 20 degrees.  Seems to me like it needs more mechanical advance and the timing retarded.  But it is hard to say for sure what is truly needed cause you would need to factor in cam and where it was degreed in as well as engine size and specs.  

Just curious but has he made sure he is not 180 degrees out on the distributor?  Do the headers or manifolds glow red?

I havent heard from the author yet but I did find him on a T-bird website.  Here is what he is talking about on the process of sodium Dichromate..

Anytime.   Grin

I emailed the author about the sodium dichromate solution process.  If he replies I will post up that process.

It coyld be tonawanda or one of the car plants & their staging area for the engines.  Corvette plant still uses a very similar system for the assembly line.  Also looks like diffs in the far right of pic.??..  Kinda hard to tell.

Anyone else think the vin on the pad seems a little off or is it just me?

I'm not sure if anyone has exact #s..  But a guess would be less than 1/3rd..
807  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Sales receipt VIN only number off on: August 23, 2013, 03:14:47 PM
I dont recall the order form looking like that.  Also if you look it states "To be delivered on or about: ASAP    1968"               Someone else will have to comment on that.  Only reason I say that the vin on the paper work could have been from a loaner car was due to the fact that the dealer would not know the vin until the car was delivered.?. Someone correct me if I am wrong on that comment..
808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Sales receipt VIN only number off on: August 23, 2013, 02:39:35 PM
Ok here are the questions that pop up in my head.

1.  The order paperwork shows 07/26/68 which is a Saturday.  The plant wouldnt have gotten the paperwork until the following week which if they started the build that week it would have been a 07E not 07D..  Anyone else agree or disagree.?.

2.  The vin on the pad looks a little odd to me.  Not saying its a restamp just one of the characters looks different than what I am used to seeing.


On the flip side the pad could be fine and the vin on the paper work could be a car they let him drive until the one he ordered came in.  Also the plant may go by when the order was placed for when the build date is to occur (but I dont have the warm fuzzies about that)..


Bottom line Id have the hidden vins checked and then double checked.  And if you still have concerns see if there is a member close that can look the car over or have Jerry verify the car.

Do you have any hi res photos.  Pics are too small to make out fully or Im getting older and need to schedule an eye exam..

If you cant post them you can email them to me if needed.

Hindsight now but I would have tried a heat gun to see if the decal would soften up enough to come off.  If you can find someone that has a picture of one; heck try the pic you posted, you might be able to recreate one using adhesive paper for your printer and photoshop.  To my knowledge there is no one repoping these..  Maybe someone else has a lead..
