Thanks again Lane, hey did you check out that other forum? The one with the possible Yenko.

This is from the 1968 Camaro Assembly Manual, you can get one from Classic Industries.

Cool, thanks Lane!
So according to the pic it looks like I'll have to take the spoiler off, or am I just reading it wrong?

Here's a better one......

it seems it's easier to leave the lower valance panel on and chisel the rivets off. :D

Well I got the grill off today, what a job, broke like 3 bolts, and they are hard to get to. Not sure if I should try restoring the original, or just buy a new one. The old one is craced in like 5 places. I should be able to epoxy it together, but not too sure how it will turn out. Never know till you try I guess
Has anyone ever delt with Matt's classic bowties? how reputable are they? they seem to have very reasonable prices, like the grill for instance. Rick's $85. Matt's $65, not sure of originality though. any help would be greatly appreciated. Here's a link to Matt's.
This project is getting expensive!

Is there a "Save the Camaros foundation" that could help financially? lol

Never heard of Matt's. But I'd buy one rather than repair the old one.

Here are some pics.
Also took out interior today, seats, carpet, and cleaned everything up to prep for installation of new carpet and underlay, and we found a little bit of trouble, not too bad though. A little rust behind the rear seat, can see the road lol.
I wish we could just replace everything rusty and dull, but we have a budget to follow, money's pretty tight in Canada right now, gas is like $6 a gallon, stations are talking about striking this week.

Floor doesn't look too bad. The bad area is small enough for a patch panel for now. I'd wire brush and hit the rest of the rusty areas with POR 15.

Most likely better to get a new grill. The grill is likely getting, if not already really brittle after all the nearly 40 YEARS of being in the sun.. Just easier I would think to start with a new one and not have to worry about it any time soon :)

Thanks guys for the imput, but I decided to fix the existing grill for now anyway, to save money. I also painted it all black.I'll post pics when it's installed.

Yeah, now that it will be held in place with screws rather than rivets, it will be a lot easier to R&R later.
