Default Camaro Fix-Up G2G in Fort Mill, SC - July 13th

So a lot of this crew already knows this, but we were planning on fixing up my uncle's Camaro in the near future. I'm at the house right now and my grandmother is already planning to make BBQ for everyone so all we need is a date!

The date for this is July 13th. Let me know if you'll be coming!

June 15th won't work for me, I am in Raleigh for a wedding that weekend. But, I am in if we can pick a date. Sounds like a fun day.

What exactly are you hoping that we can accomplish? Are there parts already there that we just need to install?

Just trying to get an idea of what tools might be needed.

If I'm not mistaken the 15th is the Roush Yates show.

8th is the Roush Yates show.

We were able to get the car to fire when we were there after the Hospice show. We need new plugs, wires, battery charged, fresh fuel with Stabil added, carb and timing adjusted, new air and fuel filters, oil and filter change, etc. I don't think we have anything major to do to the car.

Right on, I can't keep track with everything that's going on.

Like Alan said: filters, sparks, fuel, fluids, and getting the battery charged come to mind.

I think we were going to work on that and then see where we stood. So I was planning on having everything we need for those basics there on whatever day we choose. I'm free most weekends after June 8th so whatever works for the most people works for me!

I think my dad was planning on taking over the BBQ aspect of the day. If not, I can do that as well. We'll probably smoke it here and then take it up and heat it at the house so it won't be much hassle on the day of.

There was a good charger on the wall. We didn't see it until we were ready to leave.

Oldish.....

Starter fluid, some concentrated cleaner (I prefer simple green), new ignition components, probably a carb base plate gasket so we can take the carb off and clean it pretty good with some carb cleaner, some gas, new fuel filter, oil, oil filter, some fuel cleaner (sea foam for this and we can clean out the cylinders with it too), new brake fluid, assuming a full drain and bleed. Transmission fluid? Coolant?

I think it was a little older than that. 84 was the first year for the smaller body aka 3rd gen. Hunters uncles car was a 2nd gen.

Yeah, it's a 74.

I'm not sure what the life on some fluids is, but I know they spent a good bit of money on the car like 8 years ago getting it fixed up so we may not need to flush them all. Then again, the car hasn't been moved in 3 years and it hasn't been really driven in quite a while, so we may just want to clean it all so we don't have any worries.

How does June 29th compare to June 15th for everyone?

74 could have a point style distributor. Z28's and mid year standard Camaros got the HEI.
If it has points you will need a dwell meter to check the timing.
Also depending on the engine it could have a Q-jet carb and they are a major PITA if they are not shown some love
