My 68 build thread

So here is the link to my original build thread: https://www.camaros.net/forums/133-b...ld-thread.html, after the "Great Hack" I was unable to get into my original account even after resetting my password multiple times. I'm going to attempt to keep this thread going (will see more activity after my deployment). until them I'm just buying and itemizing parts to buy so they will be there when I get home. If I can remember everything correctly, the ID said that It was I believe a March build from Norwalk, OH.(Probably fix this when I find correct info) before I left I was taking apart the rear end to replace the Ring and Pinion: https://www.camaros.net/forums/27-tr...nion-gear.html (good news!) I ended up getting it out and was cleaning everything up and getting things ready to go back together, but then I left. Lucky for me I was a to find a digital AIM, and had all my boxes marked back home so I knew what I had, since them I have been Wish listing parts on multiple sites in preparation to order. I'll also try to up load Pictures soon, not sure if the link in my previous thread still works so I'll likely post a new one.


So my plan is to keep the car looking "Original" but upgrading things that are needed such as Steering and Brakes. Front end currently has 2" drop springs and plan on adding the hideaway headlights, that I have in a box. For the engine I don't plan on doing anything crazy probably just build a 350. Also sitting on the floor of my garage is a TH-400 that I plan to install. Most of the parts I don't currently need, such as door cards and interior pieces are in storage unit, and like most everyone else all the trim pieces are in the trunk. I did end up cleaning and polishing four hub cap centers and they have been placed in plastic bags for safe keeping.


Feel Free to ask any question!

Re: My 68 build thread

was browsing consoles today, which made me remember this post: https://www.camaros.net/forums/27-tr...first-gen.html from my previous user name/account.

is the best way to install it with a spacer plate? buy a complete console? buy in pieces? is there anything else "special" that needs to be done during install? also does anyone have any pictures of a hurst duel gate in their cars? going to keep researching this.

Re: My 68 build thread

Does anyone else keep a complied list of parts to buy?

I have all mine in a spread sheet by which place I'm buying from and also for stuff I know that's in boxes in the garage.

this has been an interesting journey so far, its interesting when you just sit back and thinking about what you've done with your car and the vision you can see of it in the future. there are times, when, even though I have no interior other than the driver and passenger seats inside that I'll sit there and just think about things? does anyone else do this? for most of us, we probably aren't the original owners....(if you are congrats you're among a select few).. I just wonder if the car could talk, what would it have to say? what has it seen? what adventures has it been on? well I may never know the past of the car or how it came from Ohio to California, but I can prepare for the future to make the car have new adventures to go on and new places to see little by little it will be finished.

So from me to you I *raise a glass* here's to all our projects and future adventures!

Re: My 68 build thread

after the last few weeks of going through the AIM page by page here is a list of probably 98% of the parts I need to buy, this is not including the engine or Exhaust components. I'm sure there's some other parts that I will need along the line, but I'll pick those up as I get to them.

Re: My 68 build thread

First 5 items from the Above list ordered, another order to clear out the Classic Industries list will be placed soon. The above list has been modified a bit since it was posted, few things deleted due to being ordered with other items.

first order is scheduled to arrive on the 4th of January.
