New in CO - 68' RS, first-timer.
Hi everyone. I am restoring my first car - a 1968 RS Camaro. I am outsourcing everything because I don't have any mechanical or body skills myself...so I guess technically "I" am not restoring anything. I'm not looking to make a street rod, nor am I looking to do a purist stock restoration. I'm just looking to keep that classic look and have it run well and sound good - a muscle car that I can enjoy on the weekends. Anyway, I'm learning as I go, and could use all the advice I can get. Right now I just want the car to run.
To start I had the original 327 motor (matching numbers), matching 2-speed powerglide transmission, and decent body.
So far, I have had the following done:
New fenders, rebuilt quarter panels (no bondo)
Engine rebuilt (bored .30 over), larger cam shaft I was told?
New intake manifold
New 750cfm carb
New HEI distributor, plugs, wires
New gas tank
New fan shroud
New shorty headers
Now I'm looking into exhaust and was considering Flowmaster. Any suggestions about pipe style, sizing, and how much I should expect to pay?
After exhaust, I would think brakes would be next. It currently has the original shoes - what should I know about disc conversion?
Any suggestions or advice is welcome.
