I also live in H-town (actually down in Sugar Land) and I just picked up a lower hose for my 68 at O'Reily's that has a spring in it. I'm putting in a new 4 core (fixed the A/C, and then my old one couldn't keep up) and should have it wrapped up tomorrow. If you ever have any questions about what is what, check with Bobby or Roy over at Camaro Concepts. They specialize in First Gen's (anything you are thinking about doing, they have already done), will get you the same parts as Classic for usually the same price or better and if you ever have a problem, you take it back to them rather than mail it back. The real bonus is their advice. They are over at 2236 Blalock (Blalock and about Hammerly) 713-365-9000. If you have never been there its worth the trip. Usually have 5 or 6 real nice cars around. Get on their mailing list as they do car shows twice a year (April, October). Usually about 20 to 30 real nice cars there at any given time.
