Recommended Posts

Hi all...

On April 2011 I bought 2 Gen Camaro 1980.

And what we got?

Body with new hood, floor panels and threshold.

New rear end and all new suspensions.

Interior is very bad...wet and with mold.

I haven't gearbox, engine and electrical wiring )

Some photos

It suprises mee too that there is so few f-bodies compared massive amount of US made suv's. I guess old cars ,specially cheap everyday american sports cars as camaroes ain't so sexy as big escalades etc.

Anyways welcome ,it's nice to get some eastern neighbor car nuts to our site, keep up sprit there m/

And what should I use for fix line at the the vehicle floor?

Thanks.

If you don't have the original bracket for the hose, you should manufacture one.

In the bracket you drill and shape an appropriate hole for the hose you're using.

Attach the bracket for example by welding it to the floor.

Make sure the hose is long enough for the suspension to move freely.

Möykkä thank you.

And how is line fixed on the floor in original cars?

 

You're welcome m/

You can attach the rear brake line to the side of the rear and front subframes and the driveshaft tunnel with brake line clips.

I don't know how it's been done originally in 2nd gen f-bodies ???, but who cares as long as it looks nice and works allright ;D

Almost any sort of small clip will do the job, just attach them with screws.

You can easily manufacture your own clips also.

If the clip is loose on the line, take a short length of small hose (fuel hose, coolant hose or whatever), split the hose on one side and place it lengthwise between the tube and the clip.
