    1979 Z/28 Driver Project

    Nice find, looks like a solid '79 Z! I also installed the Pro Forged steering kit on my '79 Z about 2 years ago and it's been great, no complaints. Good luck with the rebuild, looking good so far!

    A-pillar install and removal & Trunk Light

    I have an '81 Camaro and the driver side A-pillar is loose and rattling. I believe I know how to remove it, anything I should be looking for or replace before re-installing it? It seems like it is only being held in by one screw on a tab towards the bottom of the pillar. Any help with the...

    1981 4 Barrel Carb. Conversion

    I have a 1981 Camaro with the 229 V6. I was wondering if converting the manifold and carb to a 4 bbl is a simple enough task? Am I going to run into any big problems? Has anyone done this and have any tips to do this? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Cold Start

    So the Wisconsin weather this time of year sucks, and my '81 Camaro is feeling the pain. On really cold days when I start up the Camaro it idles around 500 rpm. I have the high idle set to about 1200 rpm, but my car wont get up that high until it warms up. I have to keep my foot on the gas...

    Carburetor/Idle Issues

    I have a 1981 Camaro with a 229 v6 and 2bbl carb. It hasn't been running right for a while. I've adjusted idle the screw, mixture screws, and choke and nothing seems to be working. It idles around 500 rpm or lower, sounds like its gonna die. When I start it to let it warm up it usually will...

    Removing Seat Belt Guides

    I have a 1981 Camaro with the triangle seat belt guides. Is there a way to remove them without braking them? The only way I can think is to pry them off but I feel that they will brake by doing that. If anyone knows a way to remove them without damaging or braking them your help would be...
