Originality / Re: 69 rear speaker info
« on: July 05, 2018, 07:46:02 PM »
I tried to find this info or any pics last year. Attached is a firebird diagram. I took the wires down the passenger side but used the clips on the package tray as seen in this diagram.

I wish he would paint the grill surround, it just bugs me. I'm interested to learn if this group thinks this is priced well, any strong opinions?

I'm a little disappointed Austin, I was waiting for you to flag the jack straps as incorrect for the N65...

For those that don't know the story about this tach, it was on the car when I bought it 15 yrs ago. I thought it was just junk, so I tore it out and threw it away - leaving screw holes in my dash carrier where the tach was mounted. After a few years I started to really get interested in originality, and discovered this tach was a 69 dealer accessory. So I had to buy another one to replace the one I threw in the trash. Well 3 actually, just so I could make a working whole one. Most expensive piece of junk ever, its pretty much useless. But it does light up and the needle moves.

Thanks Tm - yeah I tried all of that, and now it occurs to me that I should have taken a picture of how that looked. Placing the SSS back against the wheelhouse and the wall, the hook is not even close enough to reach even with the wheel properly face down. And the hook is way too far fwd and the shaft angle back toward the rear of the trunk if I tried to place the wheel properly is drastic - the shaft is not up and down, which is when it dawned on me that maybe the hook mount was located further back for an N65 car?

Thanks on the spoilerless deck appreciation. I knew camaro guys would get it, so I need to hang with a camaro crew.

looks fine without the spoiler, dig the Scout next to your Camaro too. you have a sweet ride. sorry I can`t help on the spare hook location.

Thanks Eldon, much appreciated. That's my 69 scout still work in progress. I figured once I get the camaro finished I would spend more time with the scout, but I seem to still be futzing around with the camaro.

At least my spoiler-less deck is finally correct with my rear antenna. No one likes it without the spoiler except me...

Was the location of the 69 coupe hook mount different between a standard spare and the space saver? I tried to replicate the instructions in the AIM, and its definitely not possible from where my hook mount exists. Does anyone have a picture of how the N65 is supposed to appear in a 69 coupe trunk? Is this why there were different trunk mats available for a camaro equipped with the space saver spare, because the cutout was in a different location?

I'm attaching a picture of my N65 displayed wrong Wrong WRONG. I imagine so few people will know its wrong, but now I know its wrong and it will bug me.

Another thing I noticed in the AIM, it shows the inflator canister nesting inside the wheel against the base. But maybe due to the canister retainer being too long, the canister doesn't nest inside the wheel. Anyone have an original retainer?

General Discussion / Sticker fun

Felt like a teenager putting STP decals on my first car. The inspection sticker brings back memories of desperate days trying to pass those inspections. I'm not sure that I like the sports dept sticker there, but its better than sitting in an envelope in my collection of car junk. Anyway, I just felt like sharing some fun while the car relaxes for the cold spell. Merry Christmas CRG!

I have an NOS in-the-box dated 7-DMI-9 passenger side mirror with an extremely faint seam, barely visible. Pictures if anyone wants to see it.

This might help.

With all that extra flaring, that car deserved a cowl hood.

Beat me to the same question! Can you post some pics of the fit between the center of the grill and the ends?

I can do a write-up if you need something, or I can send a pic. No one likes red anyway...

Thanks! I guess I'll stop using it as a jhook spare tire hold-down washer, which is where I found it. No wonder I didn't win that last show...

Maybe this will help, something to give it scale.
