Mike, thanks for the note - I might be missing something, but the outside gap with the door and quarter are good. If I move the door forward, that gap will be large and I amd not sure I can move the fender forward enough for the front edge door gap.

Sorry it took so long to post this - Hopefully the picture is clear.

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 inner quarter pinch weld / door gap on: April 15, 2014, 05:11:24 PM
Hey Guys, I am in the home stretch of my restoration and think I have a problem. I had new full quarters installed in my 68 RS Vert. While getting ready to install the interior I have found the top of the inner quarter pinch weld is tight against  the door seal, without the door panel or windlace installed. The exterior body panel alignment is perfect. I am afraid I need to go back o the body shop.


does anyone have any pictures of the pinch weld to door gap witout the interior panels?

Center of the Emblem is 4" above the welt line for the insert.

Yup, 68rs327conv is right, the rear harness connects up at the dash. You have two choices - as there are only a couple of wires that go to the rear, you can splice it behind the rear seat/quarter windo area, you can re-tape the original wiring if you are only looking for cosmetic upgrade, or you can take everything apart and plug the new harness in at the front........sorry.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Quarter Window Vertical Chrome on: December 15, 2013, 09:57:42 AM
I purchased a set of OER chrome moldings for my quarter windows. I am looking for some expertise on installing them (glass is in the car). I have looked at all the posts on the subject, and still have questions - I know the originals were pressed on with a tar like paper. The Aftermarket come with rubber channels, but by themselves do not hold the molding on firm enough. If I use urethane to glue the molding, do I glue the rubber channels to the glass first and then glue the chrome molding over the rubber channel with another bead of urethane? If I use urethane, can I just eliminate the bubber channels and glue the glass directly to the chrome piece?

Yes, it is the bracket for the J-Hook with a full size spare. Any pix or measurements from locating points would be great!

Guys, I have seen the posts on 69s and Coupes, but does anyone any the measurements or pictures of the Spare Tire Bracket for a 68 Vert?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Power Top Problem/Questions on: November 10, 2013, 09:39:26 PM
Thanks guys - the leak is at the seal, not at the fitting........looks like a bunch more money required. I have not tried "jumping" the breaker yet - will this week to see if that is the issue. Thanks for the insights. George
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Power Top Problem/Questions on: November 09, 2013, 03:07:27 PM
I am in the final stages of my restoration and am putting the convertible top on. I have now found two problems.
1. the cylinders are leaking - can the they be repaired/rebuilt? Is it worth it? Who does this type of work? (they are $170 at NPD)
2. while raising and lowering the top, the power cuts out half way, like there is a circuit breaker getting too hot. After waiting a couple of minutes it works again. I cannot raise or lower it all the way without it cutting out. I replaced the switch - no good. It does not feel like it is getting hot anywhere. Any thoughts?

You can also get them from NPD - I have also seen them on eBay.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Looking for Pix of installed 68 Headlamp Actuators on: April 20, 2013, 06:31:07 PM
Does anyone have any pictures of installed headlamp actuators? I bought a pair of repops and am not sure which side is up. Do the front  hose tubes attach from the top or bottom - do the rear tubes face toward the fender or the engine? The AIM is not too clear. I am also concerned the plastic fender covers may rub against the hoses. Thanks!

In reviewing with Daniel - he noted that Mono and Multi-Leaf had different lines. Mine is a Mono - anyone with Pics?
