Mild Modifications / Fuel smell after driving with no visible leak.
« on: April 11, 2021, 12:39:30 PM »
Where would I look to see why my garage smells like gas after parking in my garage after a cruise?
Should I have the carburetor rebuilt? There is no visible leak by carb or intake.

Looking to find a passenger side square after market mirror to match the remote drivers side mirror on my 69 Camaro. Anyone ever see one? I purchased a pair of round ones and may just replace both and disable remote control on drive side door. Any Ideas appreciated. Was it an option in 69?

General Discussion / Bulb replacement 1969 Z11 BB - for clock

How do you get to the instrament panel light bulbs? Do you have to remove dash pad or the whole instrament cluster?

General Discussion / Head lights shut off on high beams
« on: July 11, 2020, 10:01:33 AM »
I have a problem with my 1969 Z11 BB head lights going off when I press the button on the floor. I have tried replacing the button to no avail. I checked all connections from button to the back of the head lights, the only thing I can't check is the high beam indecator in the dash. How would you get to it.

After driving my 1969 Z11 BB I get a strong fuel smell in my garage with no visible fuel leak. Is that a sign of just evaporation or is the float or needle valve malfunctioning?

Instructions say to cut off contactor at 3/4" does that include the cap or spring end or just the 1" end.
Looks like                 Spring I--------       1"      would make a 1/16" difference.
Hope this makes sense.

Originality / 1969 Camaro PC Cowl Paint
« on: December 28, 2018, 09:34:23 PM »
Can anyone tell me if the area by the wiper motor arms under the Cowl was left painted white or was painted Huger Orange to match the stripe. I have seen it both ways. Mine is painted orange but looks like it was done with a brush.
