Restoration / window regulator roller repair?
« on: March 15, 2023, 07:07:34 PM »
My 1969 Camaro needs the rollers replaced on one of the window regulators (photo attached).  I was able to find a 3 piece set, and they will arrive in a few days.  They look to be a pressed pin with the end mashed to secure it in the regulator.  Any tips from the team the best way of replacing them?

Restoration / Rust Remover
« on: January 10, 2023, 12:23:48 AM »
I want to remove rust from the trunk floor of my 1969 Z28.  It is pitted as well as has some small holes.  I have seen info on Evaporust from this team with good reviews and have a friend who uses POR15.  I have never used either of them.  Can anyone from the team advise on a preferred brand?  I see Evaporust also comes in a gel, would that work better?  Any advice would be appreciated.

Restoration / 1969 standard interior seat foam question
« on: December 07, 2022, 02:41:47 AM »
I have a 1969 Z28 with standard interior, am restoring it to original ivory color.  The upholstery shop called today and told me I need seat back foam with wire in it vs. the original seat foam (without wire) I provided.  The seat bottom springs were replaced and the standard foam worked fine.     See photo attached, original seat back foam is on right.     I can find seat foam for sale with and without wire, the only 2 options I can find.  Did the seat bottom come with springs attached to the frame, and the seat back come with springs (or wire?) in the foam not attached to the frame?  Just trying to clear this up before I order more product.  No one has them in stock and it looks like I have to wait several weeks or months to get them, just wanted to make sure what I order is correct.  Thank you.

General Discussion / member locations and recommended installers

Is there a way to find other team members in my area I could connect with?  I live in Jacksonville, FL, and it would be great to know if there are any others in my area where we could share car info, local show info, recommended installers, etc.  I searched Florida in the member list and only 2 came up without locations. 

Originality / hood/headliner insulation question-1969 Z28
« on: October 12, 2022, 09:18:46 PM »
Did a 1969 Z28 come with hood insulation if it didn't have the cowl induction setup?  My Z28 has the hood scoop w/302 emblems but no cowl induction air cleaner.   

Did the car come with insulation above the headliner? 

I am starting to restore it for the 2nd time (I've had it for 40 years) and want to get it right. 

Maintenance / 12 bolt posi oil / Muncie 4 spd oil recommendations
« on: October 07, 2022, 11:34:19 PM »
Does the team have a recommendation for gear oil for a 12 bolt posi ('69 Z28) and for a Muncie 4 spd?  I have read several posts about using GL4 instead of GL5 for the Muncie due to synchro wear, is that accurate?  Is there a recommended brand or two? 

For the diff, does it need to be GL4 or 5, does it matter? In most stores, all you find is GL5.  I will add the GM limited slip additive to whatever oil I get.  Thanks.

Decoding/Numbers / Muncie transmission ID-1969 Z28
« on: October 04, 2022, 10:58:12 PM »
Attached are 2 photos of the 4 speed trans in my '69 Z28.  It is a Muncie 4 speed, case is 3925661.  The stamped codes look like CC1(a closer look may be CG1 or C61?), then 35585, but I can't correlate those into a final ID from the decode chart I received from the team.  Any help for a final ID would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Decoding/Numbers / Where to find date codes, etc. on 12 bolt diff - 1969 Z28
« on: September 30, 2022, 07:15:59 PM »
Where I can find the date codes and any other stampings on the 12 bolt differential on my 1969 Z28?  The diff has been undercoated and painted several times before I got it, and I want to know where to clean to find the numbers.  Attached is a photo showing some numbers I found on the right rear next to the diff cover.  Thanks for any help.

Originality / 1969 tail light bulbs
« on: July 18, 2022, 11:56:47 PM »
I have a 1969 Z28 (non-RS) and have a question on the correct tail light bulbs.  When my parking lights are on, the inboard parking light is much brighter than the outboard.  Current outboard parking/turn signal/brake light bulb is 1157, reverse light bulb is 1156 and inboard parking light bulb is 1156.  Is that correct?

Decoding/Numbers / 1969 Z28 Block ID
« on: July 17, 2022, 03:05:26 PM »
I have a 1969 Z28 and the engine block has VO42OTND stamped on the RF.  I am trying to determine originality.  I have owned the car for 40 years and have just started to research it.  There is no DZ in the serial number, and I understood that was on all 69 302s.  I'm not sure if this engine is original.  The block casting numbers are 3970010 and GM29 on the LR.  I looked near the oil filter and saw no other numbers.  Any ideas would be appreciated.
