BULLITT65     Have you tried soda blasting ? I've heard nothing but good , but would like to get some opinions from guys on this site before I pick a portable one up to do the rear end. Also heard if some of the media does find it's way in it will dissolve.

Is there anything wrong with the speed shop spray can paint like Chevy Orange VHT or is it the thing to mix and spray? Some of us can't do that.

Nothing wrong with VHT . I've always used--like the color and it holds up. Just looking for another excuse to purchase a HPLV spray gun set. I'm on a budget ( kids in college). Way cheaper in the long run vs. powder coating--maybe a little more self satisfaction. And I can use the detail gun for the engine !  Shout out to Rustoleum  also. Continuing to be a PITA removing from everything, but did it's job for preservation.

I  prefer " burnt orange" over "pumpkin orange"---But if all our opinions were the same we would still be driving Model T's--BLACK.

I'm using the POR-15 system. I've read some restorers ( judges) use  Seymour EN-48 engine enamel. Read more ,quite a bit on this topic in here.

What a cool story ! ( watched the clip on youtube also) Love to hear and see more on this car !

Who was #1 owner ? Or did I miss it somewhere ?

Mine never left a 10 mile square area--- that ones an international.

And a stroker engine really means nothing. What's the complete package ?

Many posts on this ,I just listed what was common problems-----over 30 years ago. By now all areas should be under suspicion. A good percentage of these cars may be on their 3rd build. Around here by the late 70's most were beginning to rot out. My friend/body man has stories of cars he fixed for people that spent big $$ for pretty pictures on line only to discover a host of problems under paint. Bright colors still hide a lot. Dark cars will always " wave " to you.

Sounds like aaronz/28 also set the engine up correct 12.5:1 compression ,surely reconditioned the rods , JE pistons ? Heads massaged ?  more hp=more fuel requirements ( lbs/hr)  Is it demanding what the cross rams able to supply maybe/maybe not----looks great, plugs are clean. Quite the sleeper and should pull  some new factory muscle hard over 100 ( per Car Life 1968 , they were good for 136-138 in stock trim if that's saying anything) Pretty good for an old battle horse!  Maybe pick up another set of wheels/tires to put the power down to the pavement. Great package !

The "alignment specs" are in the build book 67/68. If someone has a 69 maybe they can post a copy for him. And wow ,I have not heard about tracking to the right in years ! Did hear it however--- " would keep you from drifting left of center"  maybe an urban legend.

Ditto !

671  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I am the only one that ordered the wrong shirt! on: October 21, 2013, 03:34:27 PM

Check for bondo:  lips of rear quarters(inner),rear lower quarters ,lower/rear front fenders,esp. passenger. Around rear window molding, seam which runs from rear window to trunk( old drag cars tend to crack in this area) Areas where roof attaches to full quarters(cracks) IMO these  were areas of problems ( held water or cracked due to twisting) body men encountered years ago with theses cars. Start there and of course check everywhere else ! floor pans, trunk, area where water exits through cowl. Body lines.

As was stated, from there mechanically, inspect like any other car. All being sound , he's probably in the ballpark on price-----read on for more opinions. Look up old posts.

WD-40 works good for short term but requires constant re-ap. Use the gallon jugs with a spray bottle. I've got parts sealed in zip lock bags--works great ,when I'm doing a motor I'll spray it down and cover with plastic---works great. Seems to evaporate after a while if left in open air. I'm trying the gun oil.   Even my boats outboard I soak with WD-40 and as long as covered and somewhat sealed , works great. I'm a car guy and won't dock !
674  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: m20 bolt markings on: October 17, 2013, 02:26:21 PM
Going to put the name and number out there who did my M21 last summer. Restores, rebuilds and date codes. Wonderful work. Guarantees for life " unless you throw slicks on and screw it up at Norwalk ,than your #$$#ed" (quote)---he also restored and set up the Hurst.  N/E Ohio   440-409-9620    Steve

Was referred by the man who builds our automatics.
675  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: rust preventer on: October 17, 2013, 02:07:40 PM
I've read " gun oil "  ( CHP ) springs ,etc..   Plan on trying when I get mine back together as the rattle can black is long gone. Did do it's job.
