General Discussion / Anybody buy from
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:42:48 PM »
Just curious; saw an ad for
Apparently they make custom reproduction USA State License Plates.
Anyway, I'm wondering how good the quality is.

Also, It's strange that their Texas plates are the "euro" style?!?
My Camaro is a Texas car, but I wouldn't want that style plate on it.

Warning! Another 69 Z28 soon to be built...

I'm guessing that it's a 'fake' body tag.

Maintenance / Need Recommendation for a Fuel Sender
« on: August 25, 2016, 06:55:09 PM »
I need a recommendation for a new fuel sender as I believe that the one that I bought from NAPA is wrong for a 1969 Camaro (350 SBC: one tube).

I've checked everything out; gauge works OK, sender works OK on the bench test, and I also hooked it up to the car wiring outside of the tank and verified the ohm range and range of the needle on the gauge.

The problem is that when everything is installed, the gauge will read 'Empty' when there is still about 7 gallons left in it. I suspect that the float arm is TOO short and not reaching low enough into the tank. So, that's why I think that it's the incorrect sender for the application. (BTW: It's a Spectre replacement gas tank)

Any Recommendations?

Restoration / 69 "Door Window Guides"
« on: March 01, 2016, 06:22:45 PM »
Question about these 'Door Window Guides' -
My 69 Camaro doesn't have them and I can't find them in the AIM.

Apparently they attach under the Outer Window Felts.

Are they required? and Why wouldn't they be in the AIM?

Maintenance / Dash BRAKE Light Problem
« on: August 01, 2013, 07:05:28 PM »
OK. After reading many posts on this subject, I attempted to diagnose my problem:
My dash BRAKE light is always ON.

Now, from what I have read, disconnecting both the wire at the parking brake switch under the dash AND disconnecting the wire at the master cylinder junction block should cause the BRAKE lamp to turn OFF.
Mine stays ON.

Does this mean that I have a short somewhere in that circuit??

Restoration / Question about new gas gauge?
« on: June 11, 2010, 09:14:24 PM »
I bought a new gas gauge from YearOne.

The old one had an external resistor (it measured out @ 90 ohms) on the back of it and
the new one does not have that.

Is the resistor required for the new gauge? Should I save it and re-use it?


Maintenance / Q?: Water leakage; 69 Tail Light Gaskets
« on: September 04, 2009, 09:00:49 PM »
Anybody come up with the perfect solution to water leakage aroung 69 tail light gaskets?? I have heard that aftermarket gaskets are really bad. And mine are definitely leaking.

I'm thinking about re-using the original gaskets and running a bead of Black silicone RTV around both sides.... Any thoughts / opinions?

Exhaust Manifolds - Any differences between cars with auto/manual trans?

Maintenance / Q? About LED lights (tail lights, turn signals, etc)
« on: May 23, 2009, 08:20:09 PM »
I see that American Autowire sells LED OEM Style Replacement Bulbs...

This seems like a cheap alternative to the expensive LED conversions kits.

ARe these bulbs any good? Do they put out good/bright light?
If so, why would anyone buy the expensive kits??
