Question RS section

is there an own section for RS-related topics?
(headlights from hell??)
i am trying to convert my standard grille to a rs, but it's not without problems, so i was hoping there would be an own section for these issues..

Re: RS section

Lars, no separate RS section, just hang in there with your other posts, folks will come along that can help on the conversion issues.

Re: RS section

need the rs fenders.....or cut off the standard and weld in the rs brackets that they sell aftermarket. need new grill and moldings, the headlight buckets, two motors, 4 limit switches, 3 relays, rs harness. search rs parts in ebay. they sell virtually everything for them. 67 are completely different from 68 and 69. similar appearance to 68 but the way they work is different, motors instead of vacuum

Re: RS section

yeah, i bought this whole converting-kit, including all the parts. but silly me figured that everything was just bolt-on, not having to pull out the welder. but that just became the next thing on my to-do list.

thanks

Re: RS section

Well if you have nice standard fenders to work worth, it may be worthwhile to do the conversion by cutting out the standard mounting brackets and welding in the rs brackets. otherwise finding nice solid gm rs fenders is a good $$ saving route. Not sure what all the kit has and if it uses the factory way of opening or not, but the tricky part is getting the doors to open and close, getting it all too fit is relatively easy.

Re: RS section

the fenders are so to speak, in mint condition. painted and everything.
i thought of using a piece of the original lamphousing and add the new bracket.
here's a link to the kit i got:
http://http://www.ss396.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=camaro6769&Pro duct_Code=RSKIT-8W&Category_Code=RALLYSPORTKITSSUB

i'll check it out the next time i go to the garage. both ways should work out i guess.

thanks!

Re: RS section

The fender brackets can be bolted in place - no need to weld them.

Re: RS section

yes, i'm about to figure it out i think. i have a thread in the bodyshop about the same issue, and i think i might have gotten the wrong ones when i ordered the kit. the ones i got, only has two threaded holes in them, for the headlight housing, but the ones you mean, has a number of holes in them, right? i got two pairs of the ones on the left, but i believe i should have one pair of each, like the pic.
