SS hood or ZL2?

SS Bullitt...Of course, all things mentioned (color,stripes,etc.) are the way the car came (born with). I have been thinking to myself recently, what could I do to make the car stand out? I would like it to be a little more distinctive. Just too many "cookie cutter" H.O. cars out there to suit me. That is why I am not adding all the add ons you always see like spoilers or ralley wheels, ZL2 or gauges, you know what I mean. The reality is that I will be lucky just to get the car back together, much less add embellishments. But, I would like to hear from you guys about any ideas (realistic, serious and tasteful) you may have that I could consider to make the car unique or instantly recognizable.  I am thinking a day 2 look, with my traction bars, Sun tach, maybe a set of fat and skinny Cragars. I also like some of the Baldwin/Motion add ons. I do have a pair of NMW tow tabs. What are your thoughts, guys?

SO out of thousands of Camaros, this could be the first I have heard of re-uniting the original motor with the Car after so many years apart.
Really? I know of more than 10.....
Cut him some slack, Bullitt does not want to acknowledge the H.O. re-unitings,lol.
I remember the car in Texas with the L78 , http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9450.0  I think you put him in touch with the original car Kurt?! Then there is a fellow CRGer that has a L78 69 block that the original car's owner was not interested in obtaining.

 Thanks for all the encouragement. Glad I don't have to "go it" alone and have others who have been down this road. I've used those tires for "rollers" for about 40 years now. Always seem to hold air or maybe they are petrified. lol. I wish this guy would join the site. He is very knowledgeable although his expertise is with the Chevelle. I asked him a few key questions that only an enthusiast of the car would know, like where the trunk seal gap should be. He answered everything correctly. That is one reason I feel strongly that he will do a great job. Nothing that he looked at rust wise seemed to be a concern, He saw the car in person for the first time today and already gave a plan how he would go about the repairs. He indicated it would be this fall before completion. I know as things progress, I will become more and more eager and impatient. Can't wait to see progress pics as it takes shape. This has been a long time coming and I am ready to see it get done. It will be, of course, H.O. with black top and black D90 and black tail panel and rockers. No spoilers and XT 14x7 rims with dog dish caps and endura bumper. Thanks a ton CRG.

...I will miss you, X22. Yes, this is the beginning of the Body Process. Mr. Birdwell (MRLS6) has it in his very capable hands and I have full faith and confidence that he will do my car justice. Praise the Lord that he was put in my life to do this special job. Thanks to Buenymayor for putting us together,  as MRLS6 did his car also. Wish me luck and updates will be coming as work progresses. Pic of my car leaving just an hour ago heading to Ft. Wayne, In.

. Just curious, any of you have the a-arm bolt orientation (bolt head out) as the one picture shows? The AIM is that way but believe every car I've ever looked at had the thread side out except for one 69 Firebird I noted a few years ago.

Chick, Are you talking about the large bolt that goes through the bushings on the frame end of 'A' arm, I assume. My three Nor. cars all have the bolt heads facing the front, like the picture. In fact, most I see are that way, I believe. May start paying more attention.

I am sure some of the "body work" guys could give a more specific brand or part number, but I just did a search the other day regarding this and found a seal on this site:   http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/21863/Camaro-Roofrail-molding-install-tape-1967-1968-1969/   
266  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Aftermarket 69 Vinyl Top Moldings on: April 08, 2014, 09:04:41 PM
Well as luck would have it, I stumbled on to a parts car. I think it can be bought right (like $500). It has the vinyl top moldings in the trunk I need. I did not inspect each one, but the car has a lot of small pieces that I saw as usable. It is (was) a 6 cyl auto console car w/pwr. strg. Z23 and X11. Looks like a Feb build Nor. car. VIN and Tag are gone, no title. Has good roof,firewall and outer firewall kick panels (some call them tulip panels). I'm thinking I can get what I need and sell roof and other parts and break even. Carpet looks like it might be savable too.Anyway, Might have some moldings coming my way. Guy has repro vert. rockers and full trunk pan and frame rails too also trunk drop offs. Only drawback, they (Frame and trunk) have some hacking from a mini tub attempt and have a few spot welds from a mock up. He said he would take 1/2 catalog price. DII is the brand. Thoughts appreciated on how to proceed.

Kind of a shame to hide that beauty with an Air Cleaner, eh?! Cool
268  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / rain drip bright molding on: April 07, 2014, 02:20:32 PM
Are the aftermarket accurate and good? I have my original, but they are flawed. this is for 69 specifically, but I think all three years are the same.
269  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Aftermarket 69 Vinyl Top Moldings on: April 07, 2014, 02:17:44 PM
Can anyone give an opinion on how good (accurate) the aftermarket stainless vinyl top moldings are? Is there one brand or vendor I should look for over another? Anyone have extra rear pieces (2) they can spare? I seem to be missing a piece(1) on rear will have to check which side.

Paul, that is  a super nice pic in a "real world"(meaning: car has a few flaws, but still shows well) setting. Just Beautiful!
