Question

What are some of the better manuals for
repair and restoration of a 1969 Camaro?
I have a few but they do not cover wiring,
disassembly in detail of components.
thanks.....

call classic industries and get yourself a factory wiring schematic. there very handy to have around, especially when your re-wiring a car.

Cool

HP Books (#758) - "Camaro Restoration Handbook" by Tom Currao & Ron Sessions

This book does a pretty good job of step by step resto. I had bunches of pictures.

good luck
Ronnie

I have the HP that rrent has and it's pretty good at describing the processes involved. However, the two best pieces of referance materials I have found are the GM Factory Assembly Instruction Manual and the Body by Fisher Manual. Though these manuals don't show you how to restore a project, but sometimes just finding out how to put it back together (Assembly) and to properly align and adjust (Fisher)components will cure a lot of headaches. Dedicated wiring diagrams are available but the Assembly Manual has a general one as well. Total cost for both manuals approx. $40. I need a new assembly manual because it's worn out.

I agree with CarlC. I have done almost all of my work with the factory assembly manual and the shop manual.

I have the Camaro Restoration Guide 1967-1969 which has everything, almost. I like it a lot.

Bob,

I bought a Haynes rebuild and restoration book from my local auto parts store.

The book gives a very good wiring schematic of the whole car. It has been very useful to me.
