Restoration / 1969 Rear Window Installation
« on: July 11, 2022, 11:01:45 PM »
I'm getting ready to install the glass on my recent restoration and saw the post regarding factory installed windshields, but my question is, were the rear windows installed with the same cloth dam or did they use a different material?

I am currently looking for the best quality firewall pad and when I looked at what HBC has to offer, they show one priced at $54.00 and the other priced at $289.00 with the same product description, my question is, has anyone compared these two products? and by the way they are both described with incorrect fasteners, if anyone has ordered either one your feedback would be appreciated.

Caution! I just tested mine last weekend over the fender of another car and it jumped out of my hand and chipped the paint, hold on tight, they have a lot of Tork!

Decoding/Numbers / Factory Axle Stamp?
« on: March 28, 2022, 10:03:04 PM »
I was bead blasting my 12 bolt 4:10 rear end I had bought a few years ago and noticed grinding marks once the old paint was blasted off, it's not original to my car however I will be using it and just wondering if the factory did that?, are they original stampings?, also you can see the "E" stamped twice.

Chick, were you able to fit the backup linkage with those headers? They look like Doug's from the picture?

I just went through this situation yesterday when I went to the brake shop to have my '69 rotors turned, but they where to thin to turn, so I went to NAPA to find a good replacement and they only had the single piece rotor vs. the two piece, when we compared it with my original rotor it was dimensionally identical and would have worked fine, but I want to keep everything as original as possible without sacrificing safety and ultimately ordered the two piece unites from HBC, when it comes to judging, safety trumps originality and if you decide to mate a original hub with a new rotor may require balancing, doesn't seem worth the effort IMP.
