We (CRG) don't care if you have wipers or not, and we don't mind humor either!  :-)




Man, that is good to know! Some on the other site are not into humor and they can make the site into a joke, if you know what I mean. I am always going to post grainy,fuzzy pics from here on out, so you guys do not see all the flaws and pick my car apart.

I think those are pieces made into furniture. Front end= desk, rear=couch? Educated guess as of now, based on other similar pics I have seen. (Back after a minute of searches)Further investigation confirms my initial thought...man I'm good! Grin Wink  http://tr.pinterest.com/pin/538743174145019630/

Oh! How nice! Can we refer to him as PhilZ?lol  Some dogs begin to share the traits of their owner after awhile. What do you think my dogs have picked up from their master?
277  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / widow felts nos vs. A.Mrkt. on: March 01, 2014, 08:31:16 AM
I have a chance to get some NOS outer window felts for a not too bad a price IMO. A couple of years ago, this would not have even been a question for me, but A. Mrkt. parts are improving, at least felts,I am told. As I understand, the show grade A.Market felts are pretty good, have come a long way in quality and accuracy and even have the rubber flap on the 1/4 felts. I have not seen these in person. I am a NOS kinda guy , but if the A/M is as good as claimed, I would go that route as funds are getting squeezed and other weatherstripping will be A/M. Along that thought, I planned on getting the higher priced latex weatherstripping. Here is what I'd like some feedback on: Anyone, here, that is a correctness freak and can give an opinion on the A/M quality, correctness, etc... to help me decide would be greatly appreciated. Also, any feedback regarding the latex vs.regular rubber drip molding and door/trunk weatherstrips, so I do not make the wrong purchases when that time comes appreciated as well.

There is a lot, and I mean a LOT, I do not like about GM, but they sure made one hell of a nice 1st Gen. Camaro, I think we all can agree. Those cars are magic! Wink

282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Perventing rust in the 1/4 panels of my 69 camaro on: February 27, 2014, 05:47:42 PM
Vince/others,
Nothing wrong with POR-15 products IMO, just that it is actually a paint that can be put over rusted areas and it cures by the moisture in the air, from what I understand or at least the product I have used. Here is a link to Waxoyl. http://www.waxoyl-usa.com/products/corrosion-prevention Should have had it in my earlier post(lazy, I guess). Looks like Waxoyl (according to the site)will not sell to private buyers and Centers that apply are only in the upper East Coast, as of now. Google shopping shows products available. I learned about product from being a M-B Tech. Used more so in Europe. I am not an authority on paints or rust proofing, so perhaps some of our "body" guys will chime in. I was only sharing what I have had experience with and feel are preferable and superior to the heavier black rust proofing products. There may be a similar product to Waxoyl that can be purchased by a DIY. Eastwood ,I believe have products. You may talk with a reputable shop and thy could possibly have the means to buy the Waxoyl product for you. Another product I have no experience, but have heard reccomended is called Dinitrol (UK) here is one link:http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/321310150227?lpid=82   Might just want to Google "rust prevention,or  proofing,or  corrosion,or  protection" Hope this is of some use.

In a word,YES! Except you did not mention which one or kind. I just posted a day or two ago about a product call Waxoyl I think under my post on "Nagging ?". I also have some spray cans of cosmoline (look online) One drawback, it has an odor for awhile. I would not use anything like the black undercoat or heavy caked on type stuff as moisture can get trapped between the undercoat and panel causing what you are trying to prevent. The products I mention are clear or opaque, thin and adhere well and can be done by a DIY some are in spray aerosol with long tube with a head that sprays out 3 ways to do things like frame rails and tight, unseen places. Prevention is worth a pound of rust,as they say.

As for the $2 vs $77 registration increase, that increase is over 45 years and in the same 45 years GM has increased the price of a new Z/28 from around $4,000 to a whopping $75,000.

You might also note (besides inflation) that the $4000 Z/28 was an ordinary production car, where the new Z/28 is an all-out race car for the track that includes and meets 40 years of safety and emissions regulations. Apples and oranges.
It might be, like the pharmaceutical industry and its high prices, that one is paying for the R&D of a track proven car.
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: connecting rod reconditioning on: February 27, 2014, 10:13:10 AM
Hi I have a shot at a set of 67 SS350 dimple rods at a decent price.  They are reconditioned and my question is if rods can be over-reconditioned?  Is my best course of action to take them to a shop have them measured and magnefluxed then make my decision?  I don't want to have a bunch of money in a set of rods I can't end up using.  Thanks.

Several statements you make I do not quite understand. I am not aware of any 350 rods referred to as a "dimple" rod. If you have them "checked out" and are getting them at a "decent price", how can you have too much in them? If they are bad, a decision will be made at that point whether to spend extra to make usable or pitch them. If you have a concern about the quality and do not have the tools to measure them yourself, perhaps you should just get a used set of small journal (1967 and earlier) rods and have them re-conditioned at the shop you would have these rods you are considering checked out. SB Rods are generally plentiful and rod machine work for stock rebuild is generally not a bank breaker. Over re-conditioned? Not sure what that means-the rod is either good or it is not. Now, other modifications are possible such as "floating" or "bushing" the small end, indexing, balancing, stress relieving, side beam polished, lightened, etc...A basic rebuild, I would have the rods checked for bent/twisting, magnafliuxed, big end resized, and new rod boltsd, if money holds out have reciprocating assembly balanced.
A note:
    small journal, 11/32 rod bolts in 1967
    large journal, 3/8 rod bolts 1968, 1969
    forged steel
    pressed pin
    small rod beam
    a Chevrolet Engineering Servce Letter, dated November 1, 1967, read in part:
    "In order to use up a surplus of 45,000 1967 350 cu. in. Connecting Rod Assemblies (incorporating the 11/32" rod bolts and nuts), approximately 5,600 1968 RPO L30 (327 Cu. In.) engines with Powerglide Transmissions were built from 10-11-67 through 10-13-67 with the 1967 Connecting Rod Assemblies."
