Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor - Future Rebody of 124379N511823
« on: July 16, 2018, 10:22:34 AM »
Ohio Title and VIN tag for 124379N511823 being offered on ebay, located Hollywood, Florida.
"You will receive:
- 1969 Camaro SS dash panel w/ the vin plate and a clean title"
"A Dynacorn body will be your best bet for this build.  You will save $ on the body work you would expect from starting w/ an original 69' builder.  Also the vin plate and title will allow you to build a REAL 69 SS CAMARO because without a title & matching vin plate any Dynacorn body is just a big piece of metal..."

Restoration / A-Pillar Pads - Cleaning and Protecting
« on: July 13, 2018, 12:15:00 AM »
My car's original dark blue A-pillar pads have both cracked full-width due to the long years it was stored immobile in the Californian desert. I managed to find another dark blue set which are in better condition (crack-wise), but are absolutely filthy.
I'm looking for suggestions for gently cleaning them to remove the grime, without damaging the material (urethane?), and also if there is a product I could apply to protect them further, after cleaning. Many of your US products won't be available here in Australia, but I can hunt around for an equivalent based on recommendations.
I won't be reinstalling the interior until final assembly, which is a loooong way off  :( so I plan to leave these as-is until just before installation, but want to do the research now.
PS yes the original-to-car parts will also be cleaned and stored.

Restoration / Upper A-arm Splash Shields
« on: June 03, 2018, 11:02:09 AM »
Wondering who currently makes the most accurate upper a-arm splash/dust shields for a '69?
I had a set that were thin and so flimsy they could've been cut from a bicycle inner tube......
I've been looking at Steele Rubber's product and it looks good, but also heard a rumour that Trim Parts is going to make them. Did consider buying masticated rubber sheet with the correct short cord fragments in it, but minimum order size makes shipping down under pretty $$.
Any recent experiences/opinions much appreciated!

Originality / 1969 Small Block Smog Pump Cradle
« on: May 24, 2018, 12:31:50 PM »
I've been looking for an assembly-line correct smog pump cradle (the lower bracket) for a '69 small block.
Several I've looked at have either one or two small holes in the main flat part of the bracket, directly under where the long bolt passes through the pump casing - similar to the attached reference picture. One bracket I looked at had no holes, but the captive nut was hex rather than square, so I suspected it was a reproduction or service replacement.
I have been told that the correct-for '69 brackets were unique to that year, and only had one hole, but can't find any confirmation of that.
Can anyone confirm if an assembly-line correct bracket should have any additional holes as described,  and if so, one or two? or if there are any other markings or features to look out for? Thanks!

Originality / Smog Pump Spacer Usage
« on: May 19, 2018, 07:23:49 AM »
Did any '69 models use a spacer between the smog pump pulley and the white fan, or did all pulleys bolt right up to the fan? I've seen the spacers used on Corvette and others, but so far, not on a first-gen. Thanks!

Maintenance / Ignition Coil Bench Test
« on: May 01, 2018, 07:46:53 AM »
What's the correct procedure for bech-testing a stock points ignition coil, and what are the minimum readings for primary and secondary windings to confirm if coil is good or bad?
This is for my Delco-Remy 298 B-R, by the way.

Site Comments/Discussion / Search Results
« on: April 26, 2018, 09:54:44 AM »
Noticed over the last couple of weeks that the forum search function only shows limited and very recent results. However, if I use a search engine (eg Google) with the exact same keywords and the prefix '' it will show the thread I'm looking for.......
Example: was searching for an old thread about Paragon Reproductions today; searching from within the forum for the keyword 'Paragon' only found today's posts. Google threw up the thread from some years ago that I was looking for.

General Discussion / Side Glass - Coupe or Convertible?
« on: April 02, 2018, 01:11:16 AM »
Is there a simple way to determine if uninstalled side glass is from a coupe or a convertible? As far as I know, the door glass is the same shape/size for '68 and '69 regardless of body style (correct me if wrong!) but the quarter glass is a different shape between coupe and convertible. Thanks for any tips in spotting the difference!

Decoding/Numbers / Documentation for 9N657909
« on: December 17, 2017, 04:20:31 AM »
I admit to being biased towards a Cortez Silver Z28, so naturally this one caught my attention:

However, looking through the detailed pictures I noted a number of red flags - like the stamped codes (!) down by the oil filter. Then the size of the font for the VIN sequence differs from the rest of the VIN on the CHP appraisal certificate, as well as certain spacing, so I wonder about the rest of the 'documentation' - broadcast copy, MSO......
Interested in your thoughts. Not trying to start vendor bashing, so could we please keep it factual  8)
Here's a few of the photos from the above ebay listing:

Originality / 68 and 69 Console Gauge Pod Trim
« on: December 10, 2017, 02:12:25 AM »
Over the past few months I've seen several different console sawtooth gauge pods with silver trim around the edges. A member here (daven1256) showed pictures of his gauge pod after restoration, with the silver edge trim applied - I think that was the first time I'd noted this detail, and have since spotted several others. My (believed) original gauge pod has no remnants of silver at all, so I'm wondering..... could it just have worn off, or was this a 68 only detail, or was there some other subtle difference, such as only custom interiors with gauges got silver accents, or maybe even different suppliers??
