Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Floor heat blanket material.

I've used (and seen others use) welding mat. It is available in silver-grey, woven material close in appearance to the old school stuff. It is a bit thinner, but has no asbestos. Inexpensive.

I agree the welding mat will look/work best for this type of application. I learned something new today!

Looking good, 1109RWHP. I also saw your pics at the Boss 302 site.
And yes, I agree with your comment, unfortunately I don't see any 'street' T/A Camaro's. Hope these builds inspire the Chevy faithful. As for my self, Im always on the look out for a project '69 Camaro to make into a Trans-Am terror.

I agree Bullitt, a lot of the better cars are drying up.  This one doesn't really look all that bad.  Typical panel replacement needed on most neglected 50 year old cars.  I guess it depends on location but around here $20k doesn't get you much of a car.  I've seen base 69 Camaro's trade hands that looked far worse.  So someone will buy it eventually and save it most likely.

Lloyd, Yes I did replace the trunk panel in my car. Had too many rust pin holes. What differences are you seeing?
The water shield you refereed to from Repo's is black, not at all like brown craft paper. After the glue dried on mine I sprayed with WD40 and wrinkled it slightly, looked just like the originals I have seen. George

i have compared the 3871276 fan to others and it appears to have more blade pitch than the others- thus requiring a 'heavy duty' fan clutch- thus the larger bolt mount pattern and larger center hole.
Hayden heavy duty fan clutches have the larger hole/bolt pattern; standard duty clutches have small hole/bolt pattern.

George, Iím trying to understand the small differences between your pad and the original in the photo. Is your trunk floor original or has it been replaced?

Bryon absolutely but 20 plus years ago there was skeptism. I remember in Colvin by the #'s book stated "possible some late 67 production cars could have received this block, but highly unlikely and unverified. The same could be said for the fan/clutch assembly that are in some late production L78's. The interesting thing is both L78's I reference have 456 gears!!! Yes 323 bocks were in production June of 67.... my block was cast F 18 7

323 block was definitely used by June 67. I have a 67 Chevelle L78 block that is a 323.
Well I am in So Cal, and saw it on Craigslist here. To me it didn't look a while lot different than the red Z on eBay that sold for 23k. So I thought it worth mentioning. Both cars had a missing drive train, and needed rear quarters and trunk floor minimum. Red car had the correct tag,orange car may * be  an original Z since he says it has the correct mark behind the rear seat. Perhaps the  correct rear end and some other components would help indicate that. The reason I posted was merely to show there are still Z projects out there. The original more reputable cars have definitely dried up, and these types of cars are the entry level it seems now. So quite a big gap from these to the next level, and quite a bit of money.
