Races are an easy change ,I'd go with the ones that came with the bearings----never know on tolerances these days. Off to put a starter in my truck---told you guys it aint been ending for me this week!

No big deal. 1/2hr to pull the 3rd member out, not a priority though. Better to hear it out back than pulling 2nd at about 95mph (glide)....BIG DEAL. 89"wb cars aren't forgiving.

A lot of my buddies have daughters ,bigger headache than boys in this day and age. My one friend's daughter runs his Camaro at the track, has it slowed down to 9.6(8.9 car).She's pretty deadly on the tree(no worries) Great kid. Good wrench. Great student. Heading to college this fall and should be pursuing mech. engineering. My son said every door would open for her. Mom's pushing her towards medical .  Roll Eyes Cool thing is Dad had her in the garage working on that car years ago, she used to bring him through the burnout box and stage him, than he handed the wheel over when she got old enough.

 Cheesy yup ,4 years old. Has more sense ; than his 27yo parents (older boy) Grin  Figure he'll help grandpa take care of the park ,er ,yard in a few years.

Z's back...however replacing lower control arms and half shafts in our Freestyle, replaced rear spring shackle mount in my kid's truck (back from college) Fired up the Anglia today, ran it through it's paces and heard an unfamiliar clunk in the rear end ....only made a few passes summer before last  !! Gremlins. Too much free play in the rear end I think, getting another opinion ,at least 3rd member comes right out (9 inch) Too much to ask to run  1 Gasser meet this summer.

Is it just me or is there always  some BS getting in the way of just relaxing with the Camaro ( wrenching on it)  I'm venting.

My son told me most people just ignore car problems, laughed and said " you tear right into it and correct  " Like to think I share company here" BTY how's that motor  Darrell ?  Sad

160  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Owners manual plastic bag on: May 24, 2014, 01:06:55 PM
My guess mass produced ,that's why I posted dates on owners manual and warranty/pop to show the time gaps. (everybody loves p/n's here) Also car was not delivered until 6-25-68. Summer of Love.

I sort of picture big boxes of these items being re-ordered as needed. Who still knows what took place when the "kid" just back from Vietnam went to pick up his new Z in June of 68. I do know he took the AIR system off in the parking lot ! LOL

163  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: GM Heritage Center Documentation / Underbody color on: May 23, 2014, 07:38:18 PM
Very pretty under your car George. Blue works Cheesy.....Ash Gold does not Angry

What you wrote falls exactly in line what I found under my Z. Wondered why the gray ? ( and front 20% pretty accurate)

under my tank (trunk) was barely any coverage what so ever ,had the car sat out over the years , it would have long since rotted away. presented almost as bare metal with very lite surface rust.

Looks like you pretty much nailed what it might have looked like before the undercoating.
164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: GM Heritage Center Documentation / Underbody color on: May 23, 2014, 05:38:34 AM
I'll post some pics of mine before it gets covered up . Red Oxide final before bare metal--liberal from mid car back/frame rails.traces of gray was in the tunnel/front.Black--body color overspray/liberal---undercoat. Took it down with water based stripper, which pretty much allowed 1 layer at a time to come off. The Ash Gold weeped . Almost half the underbody had body color overspray on the driver's side,very little on the pass. My bodyman went with another supplier for the GM blackout, suppose to be higher quality---very happy with the shade. Guy doing my car wanted to replicate the overspray underneath ,I'm out on that.

Call Bob Harris at Camaro Specialties. Ordered my stencil kit from him ( and other misc..)  Nice to talk to the owner and not an operator looking up part numbers. Knows these cars.
