After I finish my current career,  I would like to consider making some top quality reproduction parts for 1st gen Camaros. I am just curious as to where the community feels there are needs. I have read post where  Jerry M. is not happy with dash pads, I think there may be a void in n44 components,ie knuckle arms, drag and pit man arms. I recently was told that the deluxe seat emblems have been discontinued.
So the question is what top quality part would you like to see made?

I think a good start would be correct fasteners and headmarked bolts.

Wow that's a good one!
 I would also like to see a website that would show the proper bolt per application, so that if you searched on say certain bolt location it would display an image with detailed description. This would be especially helpful for those basket-cases and guys trying to do concourse ready restorations.
I see a lot of post on here asking about the correct bolt colors etc

You might want to call a lawyer first.

A few years back, I spoke wirh Rick George (Rick's Camaros original owner), for quite awhile on the same topic.  There were repros that were horrible that he wanted to do right, but coudn't because of legalities......

Good luck....

While people are airing stuff out, why hasn't anyone (namely Coker) designed a radial version of the original-looking tires?

Does anyone make them now.? If so I'm assuming poor quality.

To my knowledge, nobody is reproducing the pebble grain wheel.

I have never seen a pebble grain steering wheel for sale as a reproduction part. I also like the idea of a better dash, I installed an OER and it looks and fits okay but could be better. Some folks have also mentioned weatherstripping, although it's been slowly getting better over the last few years, still there are no factory perfect reproductions available.
