Restoration / 67-68 Brake Line Clip attachment
« on: June 08, 2008, 08:06:26 PM »
What Method or Tool is used to properly secure NEW 1967-1968 Brake line (also 3/8" Fuel Line) Clip asm Part Number 3881339 to the Body or subframe.

The new clip is in the AMK book Page 150 Part Number B-10317, Red, double ended clip w/ 0.27" rivet.

The ASM manual (68) shows a detail of the clip with a "PUSH RIVET". page 123.

The new clips from AMK & Others appear to have the rivet as part of the clip. I am not sure how folks have been Clinching or Bucking this tight to the car structure?

Originality / 1969 Glove box liner surface question
« on: September 11, 2007, 04:29:20 AM »
I have a question on the as built 1969 Camaro glove box liner interior (of the box Liner) surface treatment.
Was the interior of the box coated with a suede texture or just natural box carboard/? surface.

I ask because of two reasons:
My 68 Camaro has the original glove box liner, and it IS coated with a suede type black flock- texture. So I assume YES for 68.

My 69 when purchased in 1984 lacked a liner and a home made liner with stereo, was found as purchased.
