New in NJ

I am restoring a 68 Camaro SS/RS with a 396 and a 4 speed. I'm sure I will have lots of questions since I bought my car in a box basically. Been going on Ebay just to find out what parts I have. I also have tons of extra parts for this car and other years that are extra. Please let me know if you need anything. I know some of this stuff is for 69 so I obviously can not use them. Looking forward to helping others with situations I have already experienced. I have restoed a few cars in my time but never a Chevy. Closest is a 68 Oldsmobile 442 conv. that is still in my garage. I am pretty good at bodywork and mechanical so I hope I can help.
Thanks,
JeffsSS

Re: New in NJ

Sorry for the hit and run but I do work and travel a bit. Try to get on when I can. Also have a wife that needs attention....we all know how that works. She is still great and lets me pursue my hobby. I live in North Jersey. I am not sure what 69 parts I have since I have boxes and bins full of stuff I don't even know what it goes to. I do know I have the chrome that goes in an indent in front of the rear wheels and behind the doors. I also have a few wiper motors and a tone of chrome that came with the car. Most is in very good condition just not sure what I need vs. what actually even fits this car. Anyway thanks for the warm welcome. I am working on the electrical now. Purchased a new harnes from American. A bit of a pain but a nice complete whole car harness. How do I post pics of my build? Do I need to put on a website and put the link on here? I have pics of the process from what I brought home to now.
Thanks and looking forward to getting help and hopefully helping others.

Re: New in NJ

Hey Jeff, Welcome back! Life does intrude on the hobbies, no prob, we understand The side chrome is most commonly called gill chrome, only very good GM or NOS ones are worth anything. Wiper motors, prices depend on part number. Only the bumpers and emblems are chrome, the rest is stainless steel (which polishes up nicely) or anodized aluminum, (which doesn't).

The pictures need to be hosted somewhere on the web (photo site), or if you become a member of TC, they can be stored here in the members showroom and linked.
