    lol, i dont know much about cars either, reading my above posts shows it.

    Thanks.

    ALso, dep50... you do know that that is a 67' camaro, right? (by your post it looked like you were saying your bros was a 69)

    I got a question, how hard will it be to take the body off of the frame? Where are the bolts to do this located?




    Me and my dad saw that camaro at the races. But, we loved the interior. Does anyone know where i can get the dash that is in that car? Also, what about installing the wheel tubs, how do i install them?

    You cant. It is a uni-body car. Front and rear sub-frames mount to the body. You can get bolt-on connectors to tie the sub-frames together for better strength.

    I don't think it sounds to good in the idle. Maybe its just me but it does seem like something is skipping (I don't know too much about cars though).

    Stick your hand in that fast spinning fan thing!

    That dash is custom. It looks like a factory dash with autometer gauges, and either some vinyl/plastic dye or paint (whatever :P ). The 4 smaller gauges in the center of the dash are where the interior climate controls usually reside. I don't think you can buy that. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.

    that is the sound from the camera. I was right next to the headers, when i filmed that, and it was literally blowing out the recorder, and my ears.

    Im assuming your talking about when like the volume seems to like stop for a split second.

    My dad got close to hitting the fan, when he was seeing if the thermostat was opening by squeesing the hose.

    humm, so it is just the factory dash painted orange?

    I havent seen the dash of my car for years, so i totally forget what it looks like, i assumes it was some kind of like sheet metal thing.

    EDIT** The distrib. cant be locked, because it doesnt have the weights, my dad said it has springs or something.

    Yeah, fuelie (also known as "camel hump") heads have slightly better flow than regular castings, and the chambers are around 64cc depending on castings. Smog heads have 76cc chambers.

    Re: Got the 69' camaro started today.....

    OMG crap. Did I say vinyl/plastic???

    It's metal! Duh... complete brain fart.

    Well, it's good that the springs and weights are still in there. Do they move freely? Push them outward with your fingers to tell. They should slide with some slight force, nice and smoothly. While you're at it, make sure the points are in good shape.

    humm, where would i get a metal one then?

    The distrib doesnt have the wrights. ALso, there is a coil in there, no points, although we are planning on getting a new distrib WITH the points on it.

    Do you have AIM or anything, it would be much easier talking to you on there.

    Re: Got the 69' camaro started today.....

    You can unbolt the sub frame ,but it's not an easy job. The frame is held to the body by 4 big bolts,2 at the point where the frame meets the cowl, and 2 at the rear of the frame section. They are usually quite rusted into place, and can be quite a problem to get off. I recomend you use that floor jack, and those stands, and crawl under that baby, you'll be under there enough times,that it will seem like home. The nose also has to be completely off, to pull out the frame section. Tubbing a car is a considerable amount of work, that requires a lot of sheet metal and welding work. Lots of cutting and fabricating.For the kind of work you are doing ,a set of torches, and a mig welder would be the ticket.Even a slightly modified stock hi energy ignition, would be far better than any point system.

    Thanks BD.. im substituing a oxy-acetlyne torch for a mapp gass/oxygen one.

    Im still debating what kind of welder im gonna get, and i still want to use the flux instead of the gas.

    EDIT** But what is a gas welder? In my book, it looked like he was holding a torch, and kinda like soldering the panels back on (but he was welding?)
