Did find my AIM today finally..  ;) but couldn't find any pages that mention or display pictures of bumper guards let alone mounting dimensions (except one for a short rear cancelled revision) so in the end it wouldn't have been as much of a help as you guys have been anyway - so again - Thank You for your input..

Make sure you weld them on correctly as there are a lot of angles involved, if you didn't already know.

I'm a little embarrassed I didn't think to look there first!  :-[  I'd been looking only at the camaro restoration sites and they don't publish the axle tube size that their perch is made to fit, so that's how I wound up with some that didn't.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  I'd rather have new perches as I'm afraid the perches cut off another axle wouldn't fit very well by the time I got them cut off.  My skills with a torch leave a little to be desired.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Firebird and the Trans-Am series

Jon, these photos are just outstanding, and so much fun to view. Thanks for sharing them. I particularly love the 1968 Kent image. Photos of this car in the US are few and far between. As a Firebird, it really only did two races that I'm aware of in this guise, albeit with different color schemes; Kent 1968, and Daytona 1969.

The Mexican photos are just as fascinating, and its amazing to see how the car evolved. Compared to the '69 Firebird owned by Bruce Thompson in New Zealand, which went through its entire life receiving only very minor changes, the Ward/Titus car went through several massive evolutions. I dare say when it was eventually rescued and brought back to the US, there must have been very little left of the original car in order to begin the restoration. Such is the life of an old race car.

Original Cars and Details / Re: Roy's new 68 SS350

Looks like it (Roy's car) has RS front wheel well moldings.  I can't see the rear good enough to tell if they short as well. Are you pretty sure they're original ?

To the best of my knowledge they are original to the car, I've only owned the car a few weeks, but I have decades of experience and knowledge with respect to original unrestored vehicles and their evaluation.

It just dawned on me (duh) :-[ the car doesn't have "belt reveal" moldings (wide moldings at the base of the side glass) which were included with Z21 and Z22. I'm thinking the wheel well moldings were likely added as they were part of Z21/22 as well. 

There were no notations on the Vintage Certification score sheets about the wheel well moldings, in fact they were scored as 100% original, lost .02 points for condition. They were on it in the picture from the 1984 fact book, and I'm told they were not added, but its a 50 year old car and we've only had it a short, short portion of that time.
