No I have not figured it out. I did "tweak" the bar Charley was referring to and did not seem like it helped. Maybe I was tweaking the wrong part. I don't have the car home at the moment. It is at the shop and I have been working on other cars. Let me know if you fix your problem John.

Lol,  I don't necessarily jump to that conclusion because there isn't a pic of it.   With forgery being such an issue these days I'm not so sure I'd put a pic up of my own tag for the world to see if it were for sale. Next thing ya know an identical repop tag shows up on a rebody somewhere.   Serious buyer? Wanna see it, come look at it is what I would say.  Call and ask the right questions would likely remove any doubt.  Not serious enough to look at the car in person then he's likely not a buyer anyway.   I've sold a lot of stuff in the past, and you waste a ton of time on people like that.  I don't waste too much energy with that anymore.

Just looking at it from a seller perspective.  On the flip side, being a dealer shies me away

Neat car none the less.

Totally agree!

Restoration / Manual Steering Box Rebuild
« on: December 24, 2016, 01:42:25 PM »

I had the above restored by Lares Corp. Frankly, wish I would had gone elsewhere. I had to send it back once I got it back because the box still had slop in it. Once received they called me and said there was a bushing that needed to be installed which they missed the first time. I have no problem with this. People make mistakes. They paid for the shipping etc. Got it back and it drove well until the slop returned. I was like man now what. So had a buddy over and while turning the steering wheel the top cover of the box was moving due to the fasteners being loose. I tightened them skeptical. Drove the car not many miles. Now they are lose again and tightened them up with lock tight this time. Are these bolts the style that you use them one and when removed you throw them out and install new ones? Or should I just put lock washers on the box? I don't want to do that because as I recall that is not right? Maybe the lock tight will work, but that just does not seem like a long term fix.

Can't tell 100% about this stamp but looks good enough to be checked out. The guy states that the car was wrecked in the 70's so not sure it is still around.

I had the same issue with oxyclean removing some of the color from the buckle cover. However, was able to take VRT from Adams and soak the plastic part of the buckle and was able to get most of the color back. Next set I clean will remove the plastic part of the buckle.

I believe the FP in my Z is going bad. Is there a certain one that you guys would recommend?

I looked into armaflex too, but it is to thick IMHO. I want something closer to original.
That is what I used and I agree too thick. Need to install what you guys found. Anyone have pictures of the NPD product?

Restoration / Re: 1969 Camaro L48 4 speed with Smog and AC
« on: March 02, 2016, 12:15:12 PM »
Experts: We are restoring a numbers matching 4 Speed L48 Car with factory AC. We have been restoring it for 4 years now and getting closer to the end. While working on the engine and little detail things, we can't find pictures or references of stuff like the fuel filter, pcv and other hose routing.

Does anyone have some detailed engine pictures of an original L48 car with smog and a/c ? Your car can also be restored as long as it's factory correct  :D.
