    Seatbelt help

    I know I've seen this before, but I can't remember where. My search function skills fail me. The drivers side seatbelt on my '79 is locked in the extended position. Its done this before now and then, but it's locked good and solid now. Any help to offer on how to fix this?

    Hey Canadian welders!

    Been welding for a year now. Originally picked up a flux core welder for a project, but can't get enough of it! Now I've picked up a proper MIG, and need to get a bottle of c25, and have no idea what my best bet would be. Buying outright seems a bit spendy, but some of the exchange program...

    Any Hyundai techs on here?

    My 2013 Santa Fe AWD 2.0t is making a clunk in reverse. Not when putting into reverse, but in the first yard or two of travel. It feels like it comes from the rear end. It does it once and not again during that period, and not every time, but more frequently. It doesn't happen going foward...

    Southern Ontario guys

    Hey guys, I'm having a heck of a time finding cruise nights and show and shines in the area. I know about hutches in Hamilton, and Queen st in the falls, but I'm having a hard time finding anything else. Facebook is full of obsolete information and poorly organized listings. I think Pier-4 park...

    Recommend me to mufflers

    Hey, I don't know if this is the best place for this, but it seems at least closest. My '79 z28 has flowmaster mufflers in a dual system with long tube headers, a crossover not far after the header joints and no cats. At first I didn't mind them, they sounded okay at idle and small acceleration...

    Any concrete guys here?

    Hey guys, this spring we decided to get out driveway widened, with a curb on one side that I will build a fence on. We also had the paving guys pour a 10'x10' slab in my backyard next to my deck that was otherwise a shady dead-zone in which nothing would really grow. The curb came out pretty...

    Anyone know old gas pumps?

    I lucked into an old gas pump, and I'm going to restore it into "supertest" livery for the front of my garage. It's pretty compete except for glass and ad glass. I was surprised to learn that they're are lots of people around selling vintage pump parts, but so far I haven't been able to identify...

    Gauge housing repair

    Hey guys, now that it's getting warmer, I got out to the garage to find the rattle in my dash. Pulling the gauge bezel off confirmed what I suspected, that the two lower gauge housing mounting tabs are broken. Does anyone have a recommendation for the best glue/epoxy to reattach the tabs? I was...

    Gate building advice

    Hey guys, it's clear to me that there are a lot of people on this forum that are knowledgeable about a lot of things, so I thought I'd pick some brains about gate building. I finally talked the wife into the merits of gating-in our driveway, so I figured I'd take a stab at building the gates in...

    Restoring back seat panels

    I'm not sure what they're called, the panels flanking the back seat with the ashtrays. Anyway, mine are a bit homely and was going to replace them until I learned about about interior paints, so I'm going to fix them. They have nicks and dings from seatbelts hitting them,not awful but I see...

    Engine bay cleaning

    I wasn't sure which subforum was best for this question, but was wondering about washing the engine bay and engine. My bay is covered by a fine coating of dust and oil, while my engine and subframe are pretty oily from a small leak I need to find. What's the best way to degrease the entire area...

    79 Dash bezel insert

    When I bought my 79 z28, the dash bezel insert was covered with a checker-plate sticker that mimicked the firebird dash. It didn't bother me much, but it was peeling and distressed so I tried to peel it off, without much success. It left a lot of residue, so the insert is beyond saving. I bought...

    Holley carb parts

    Hey guys, I've got a Holley carb on my '79 z28, and a previous owner completely deleted the entire choke assembly. There seem to be lots of places that sell the individual parts, but there are so many required that it would be a pain to make sure I order them all. Any chance that somebody makes...

    Second gen racing vids

    Thought I saw these vids on here before, but couldn't find them. Apologies if I'm duplicating someone else's posts. Goodwood race video of a few second gens doing the business over the pond and doing us proud. There are a whole series for Goodwood videos with great racing and second gen camaros...

    Missed connection in Burlington, Ontario

    You: 1970-73 (couldn't see the front) hoodless and possibly blown Camaro in grey. Seen it around town a few times, but never when I could catch up to it. Me: filling my grocery getter at the esso at the corner of Guelph line and mountainside. The car looks and sounds amazing, and wondering if...

    Sea foam?

    Hi guys, ran out to the store to grab some fuel stabilizer (almost getting to be time put some toys away), and I saw sea foam on sale. I've generally heard good things about it, and in some circles almost has a mythical following, but the "it does everything" claims on the label triggers my...

    Kick panel vent controls

    Hey guys, j did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for. On my 1979 non-a/c z28, I have two control knobs on either side in the kick panel. What exactly to they do? I suspect they open vents to either fresh air or heat or both? Playing with then while driving, I can't tell exactly what...

    Oil additives

    Okay, I tried a search for this, but the search engine didn't like the terms so it went no where. This may have been discussed to death, but going back many pages, I've seen posts touch on it, but not discuss it specifically. I'm intending on doing an oil change on my new-to-me '79 z28 and...

    New Canadian owner

    Hey guys, I've already been doing some posting here and there, but thought I'd pop down here to introduce myself. Just picked up a 79 z28, and I'm eager to learn. And there is so much there is to learn, lol. I'm in Burlington, Ontario. Was hoping to meet some people at meets/ show and shines...
