Re: bumper brackets and front alignment question
Something or things are not correct. Have you bolted on the bumper to see how it lines up? From what you said,the frt bumpert might end up airborne on the driver's side. Describe how the front wheels are located differently in fender openings. I have a '68 Camaro (not RS). The wheels are both exactly 2-1/4" from the lower fender extension seam where it bolts to the front fender. Running 225 x 60/ 15 new BFG T/A tires. All sheetmetal have equal gaps and are well situated. Brackets are perfectly located. I don't have a mental image of how your wheels are 1/2" off diagnonally from each other. Can you post some pix? '67 & '68 Camaro non-RS share the same valance, bumper, inner brackets. Are your brackets new? Alignment guys may chime in on readjusting your subframe and possible re-alignment of front end. When bolting on body parts I usually install the doors first so they line up and open and close properly. Then, install the rest of the front sheetmetal loosely, adjust, and line up gaps from there.
