I agree with previous posts ,sheet metal to "do it right " $$$ Angry   Time spent with your son ( and lessons learned together ) priceless ! Grin


Word of advice: Before doing one more thing ,sit down ,draw up a plan of attack with short term goals to accomplish 1 specific long term goal based on your budget. ex: want the car in primer year one: price all sheet metal + labor/favors. Start gathering your parts , got them all ? Contact your buddy ,see what he want's you and your son to tackle ,set a date to start on the body.

year 2: interior ,glass ,misc

year 3: engine/driveline

Obviously time line increases/decreases based on budget. Take your time and enjoy the build ,do it right once ,and your boy should have a cool car to take a date out in Shocked ( grades permit!)--steve.

How about sending a personal message to Kerr ? member who appears to be needing some parts.
155  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Little Pissed of the Coverage on Barrett Jackson on: January 18, 2014, 08:29:13 PM
Agreed--if your into drag racing , very important car for Camaros ( and my favorite of all time Bill Jenkins 67) Win on Sunday Sunday SSUNNDAYY ! sell on Monday, how many were probably sold because of that car--not to mention the R&D that was being done by Mr. Jenkins  in head design ? Piece of rolling history. Shame on the coverage.

What isn't made in ROC ?  Points installed at CHP, should be alright. But thanks ,I'll keep it mind Smiley Back to the filters: Napa Gold Wix?
157  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Z28 Pricing.... $75K??? on: January 18, 2014, 11:43:40 AM
I was at my dealer today and he didn't have his info handy but thought he just sold a base vette in the high 50s and he said the z06 were in the upper 80s.  Not sure the z06 is the new one if it went up any. He thought they would probably get a z. Would be a fun car if someone else paid for it! 

Ordered it through Coughlins ( Jeg's family ?) Not a Z06, Stingray Convertible Z51--optioned what he wanted 72k. 2 more working days and he retires ,nice little present to himself. He was always into small British sports cars ,figures this one will be way more than enough. LOL

I know this one was ordered while #1 was in Vietnam (probably a promotion through the PX ,Harley was doing it when I was in the service) Bought it for supposedly substantially less ,picked it up in Michigan ,drove it back to Ohio, sold it after about a year to #2  for a claimed profit (who my Dad bought it from in 76). #1 looked but could not find the paperwork--I have the POP but would like anything else just for nostalgic sake. So this service offers those documents ?  Shame he didn't track me down sooner, he did have all the pollution control parts up to a few years ago (stored in his parent's garage). Sold just before we talked. As everyone knows, and maybe not, this is one of the biggest reasons to track down the roots of your car. Never know what is hiding in the rafters of someone's garage--forgotten about.

I think the wheels are going to get scratched by the trim rings regardless of what you do. Just roll with it Wink

Agreed--I'm actually not reshooting mine ,they still present well and will offer a little character to the car. There are a handful of imperfections I'm purposely leaving--and that's one of them.

Beautiful work ,you are quite the artist. Forgot Napa put their name on Wix ,what I use on my daily drivers. Even my Zero turn. And you are correct, Wix is a very popular brand around here at the strip via the local engine builders--why I mentioned it. As far as Napa ,my Dad was just telling me he always ran their HD cap/rotor and points with no issues in the Z , and recommend it seeing as I'm going back to the OE distributer. Probably still listed.
161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: January 16, 2014, 07:34:05 PM
Ignorant on this, assuming submit vin ? Pretty neat ,looking forward to giving it a try. #1 looked but retained no paperwork ( at first he thought he might have) Luckily POP was kept in the glove compartment--in the owner's manual. All these years.( In my safe now.)
162  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: PF35 Oil Filter on: January 16, 2014, 07:23:32 PM
Notice how much thicker the casing is ?
163  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: who do you all get body parts from? on: January 15, 2014, 04:09:56 PM
Did you get a price on the NOS sheet metal ?
164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: PF35 Oil Filter on: January 15, 2014, 04:07:03 PM
I use Moroso. Baldwin is suppose to make a good HD filter as does Wix. Rumors spread around the track about issues with Fram collapsing and restricting oil flow--same summer a guy lost an engine at Thompson, and blamed the filter. I'm thinking 2008. True or not, don't know, I do know the price of a costly filter ( and Lucas oil ! ) is well under the price of a shot race engine ( or numbers correct ,virgin bore 302) All about period correct, but unless I plan on rolling it on and off the trailer ,sort of refuse to sacrifice the gains that have been made in reliability eg; gaskets-fasteners. ARP Grin   Love them blue boxes. And Percy's make a locking header bolt that reallyworks. I guess it still boils down to the use of the car.
165  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: January 14, 2014, 08:48:25 PM
Always figured master cylinders were cast. Suckers bet on exhaust manifolds ,how long to burn the paint off? Mine have no trace of paint and were removed soon after the car was bought That Nova probably just rolled off the trailer to the lot. Surprised on the fittings. Mine are OE with no trace of color. Maybe a light spray for ID which quickly wore off ?  What wouldn't you want off that lot Darrell ?? Sort of depressing--I would have been 3 when the pic was taken. Novas ? Never really popular or considered muscle cars around here back in the day. Work cars. When I was a kid growing up, everybody's dad in the neighborhood parked their "work car or truck in the street" Lot of Novas. My Dad had one. Cheap, easy to work on, dependable and he didn't care about it. Although same platform as a Camaro. Same goes for mid-late 60's Impalas- Dad called them "old man cars"  Still does ! Now a following.
