Maintenance / Battery question for my '69
« on: January 10, 2007, 11:03:18 PM »
When the battery finally shot craps in my Camaro a month or so ago I just took it out and set it back so when I get my new one I will have it for the core. I also didn't want the dead battery just sitting in there taking a chance it could leak and since it is winter I am not driving it. Well, now I have forgotten if it was negative ground or positive ground. I am almost certain that most Chevy's were negative ground but I thought I'd better ask the mechanical experts before I put the new battery in.

Also, what would be a good recommendation for a new battery. Wal-Mart has a wide selection at their everyday low prices but would I be better off getting one from another source. The reason Wal-Mart has come to mind is the guarantee they carry and there is a Wal-Mart just about anywhere you go. The only thing I dislike about the better quality Wal-Mart Batteries is the bright yellow top! That would kind of stand out like a sore thumb with my set up.

Oh, LOL, when I took the old battery out I took my battery tray out and brush painted it with POR 15. I did this secretly in my garage late one night and hopefully no one saw me do it. I also brush painted some POR 15 onto the area directly below the battery and tray, out of sight from any car show judge, just in case a battery would ever leak and I didn't see it. When the new battery goes in this hand brush painted paint will not be seen and I will feel at ease knowing the metal is protected from corrosion with POR 15. ;)

Originality / Rear trunk emblem and spoiler question.

My '69 is an X44 model. I am not sure but I think it originally did not come with a rear spoiler or the front spoiler. If it hadn't been originally equipped with the rear spoiler would my car have had an emblem on the trunk lid and if so, where would it have been? Also, same question if it did come with the spoiler?? Thanks!!!
