The very well written LM1 report (thank you Kurt), shows a picture of the chrome air cleaner cover on the LM1. According to the sales manual, this was not an included accent for that V8.

That's a fantastic reference. I always wondered about garnet across other cars.

I miss this forum. I lost my fever after waiting so long while mine was lost in the paint shop. Message me if you need anything, I think my email is visible.

Nice work David. I really dug into this many years ago, and I don't remember now if I told the story of removing this from my dash and throwing it away when I bought this camaro. Years later stumbling across a picture of this dealer tach and realizing the mistake I made. Holes were still in the dash, soI bought a few of these and pieced a new one together. I even bought wire to rebuild the wiring in the same colors as the original setup. Here's mine.

I don't know much about the multiplex setup, but I've seen pictures which show a round pin connector. I actually have one of these either male or female,I don't know why I collected it. But I never needed it. Anyway, maybe these pics help you.

Attached is the proper wiring and wire colors for an 8 track, 69 with console mount and AM radio.The wiring with FM radio is very close to this.

If you've ever lifted a space saver, you know that lady is not carrying one in a hat box...

Yes grey is correct. A black one is for later years. Here's a fun picture, I don't remember where I found it.

I was doing some research on my spacesaver, and came across this thread while comparing my inflator and wheel. The 69 camaro AIM N-65 A1 shows two part numbers for the inflator assembly, 9793469 and also 9793470 beside which it has RPO L34 L35 L46 L48 L78 PW7 and PW8. So both inflator cans are correct for the 69. I believe the difference can be seen on the label itself which identifies the tire size, where 9793469 is for the 7.35 X 14 tire...and the 9793470 is for the 7.75 x 14 tire.

I have an HI space saver with a 7.35 x 14 tire, which I sadly have discovered with this research is incorrect for my L48. And the canister is part 486506 for an E78 X 14, which I don't understand and I don't find it in the AIM.

Thanks - Andy

Thank you William for the excellent information. The sharing of knowledge in this forum is how I learned everything factual about first gens, far better than the half dozen camaro books in my house. Facebook has become such a crazy pool of misinformation, I wish folks would do their research here.
