Im so lucky the family got me that original photo of Merles pacer or else Im sure I would have never known it was a mag hubcap pacer...

Ive been hunting the internet hard for a set of mint hubcaps...

Awesome picture...


Hi Sappy,
Are you still in need of some mag style hub caps? I found some on the Team Camaro website. This guy says he has "mint" and used ones. Might be worth a try. Here is the link.

Weave.. the caps I gave Sapp are already polished by my guy.. His problem if I remember right is that the cast centers have corrosion " volcanos " and that condition can not be easily repaired.. Its mint centers that he needs.. correct me if I'm mistaken Sapp

ok so back to the driveshaft question. there are many many driveshaft threads on all of the camaro forums out there but none that i saw make even a general consensus about the identification stripes. No marks appear to be left at all on the original shaft so that does us no good. with that said what should the markings on the driveshaft be for a 396/ 325 hp 4 speed car, or better question maybe, if this was your car what would you remark it with. We also bought the chassis detail kit from quanta with the body mount tape yellow spray ink and a driveshaft number stencil, is the numbers supposed to be on there? I read somewhere someone had a pic of one with orange numbers on it and heard that it was a service replacement driveshaft. basically i am hoping to hear what will make it look the best and most accurate possible??? confused


Sorry for the delay in responding. Of course my car is a L35/THM400 auto so not sure if you can go by it although it does seem similar to what Tom posted. Have an old power point file I can't seem to open anymore so I'll post a photo of what I found on mine. Sorry didn't think to take a pic before I spray bombed mine "steel".

Nice diagram Mike!
I had posted a pictures of my original drive shaft years ago with it's original markings along a tape measure. My Camaro is also 396 with a TH400, so I am not sure if this applies to a 4-speed, but I can add to the research. My measurements I believe were from the other end of the driveshaft so that's why my distances are different.

The Camaro Research Group has a research topic on the drive shafts. Also, Bob Harris of Camaro Specialties is reproducing the drive shafts. You will need to install your own input shaft. Only issues I noticed were the U-joints had grease fittings and the balance weights were incorrect. But great for anyone dealing with a pitted up shaft
