Re: 69 Camaro budget build first one!!

Hey Brad... looking great so far!

To install those shifter riv-nuts into the new floor:
  1. locate and mark out the position of the shifter where it will mount to the new floor.
  2. Drill out the four mounting holes for the shifter riv-nuts using a drill bit that is just one size smaller than the diameter of the riv-nuts themselves. Drill perfectly perpendicularly to the floor to get a nice round hole for each one. You want these riv-nuts to be tight!
  3. Push each riv-nut into each drilled hole.
  4. With a lockwasher, then a flat washer slid onto the long brass-colored hex bolt, thread that through all the way down until it bottoms out snugly, but not crazy-tight yet...
  5. Slid on the other lock washer and flat washer underneath the transmission tunnel on the end of that bolt, then thread on the nut as well.
  6. As you tighten that nut at the end of the long hex bolt, the riv-nut will slowly crush and expand around the edge of the newly-drilled hole, causing it to bulge slightly and tighten into the hole.
  7. Then loosen the nut and remove the hex bolt.
  8. Install the shifter.

Re: 69 Camaro budget build first one!!

Any time.... just tighten it down slowly not to possibly strip that hex bolt or nut they provide. It should work fine...

Re: 69 Camaro budget build first one!!

Finally got a chance to get back at it. Switched geaers a little and decided to do a little body work while I wait on the funds for a new wiring harness. So now entire car is ready for last coat of primer after much, much , much blocking. Finally got hood on, installed new steering wheel wich looks great. (trying to keep the motivation high lol) just needing to line fenders and hood up a little more. Im thinking american auto wire for the wiring harness. Heard good things about this kit. Has any one used it before? any comments?

Re: 69 Camaro budget build first one!!

This is my first interior experience. So far so good. I know a good looking interior makes a huge impact on overall look of the car. Everything will be new and looking good so im pretty excited bout it.
