What does NBR mean on the trim tag? It seems to be where it should be LOS or NOR.

Originality / Z sticker on glove box
« on: October 04, 2018, 11:19:44 PM »
I have finally found the box that had my glove box door protected. disregard the black paint on the out side, some where in its life someone rattle canned the whole interior with black semi gloss, my interior is gold and appears greenish more than gold. My sticker is very brittle and been exposed to the elements. When I first got the car the glove box was in the open position with no glass and the hinge was rusted so bad the door wouldnt close. I have soaked the hinge with penetrating oil to the point I can move the hinge in its full range. the sticker and a couple of places on the door itseld had mold growing I very very carefully wiped away all I could but it left black stains. I am considering placing a this piece of plexi glass on the whole door back to preserve the sticker?  thoughts?

General Discussion / 814 alternator on TC site
« on: August 05, 2018, 07:24:10 PM »
So team camaro site has an 814 alt for sale, several knowledgeable people believe it to be a restamp for various reasons. The owner keeps stating to me that he purchased it from a John Perkle and the JP is a trusted authority and would never misrepresent a stamping.  I have no clue who John Perkle is? Do y'all ??

General Discussion / Best way to sell my car?
« on: July 19, 2018, 12:45:56 AM »
Breaks my heart but I'm physically and emotionally exhausted, have a kid in college and one starting this coming year. I reluctantly need to sell it, but I hate Ebay. Is there a better way?

Decoding/Numbers / Muncie ID
« on: May 31, 2018, 12:14:53 AM »
Is it just me or is there a website where muncie info is broken down with facts?
I know generally how to interpret the various date codes, the individual numbered components, the casting symbols etc. When it comes to the I'd tags it seems to be a crapshoot, although I have found some lists on here and other sites they tend to contradict each other and are sometimes very vague. I'm also interested to know if there's a list of vin/ car models?
Like mine is 8N467701 obviously camaro.    I see some for sale that are 9s123456. What is s ??

Originality / stamp and font good?
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:37:16 PM »
This block was in Dallas Texas, it is not the block from my "maybe Z".  it was listed in 68 orphans a while back and Kurt said its legit so i purchased the block to put in my car if and when i can prove its a Z28. i absolutely trust Kurt, however just recently a guy also with some stamp experience tells me he thinks its an obvious re-stamp because the  3 in the 403 has a rounded top and the 68 stamps had a 3 with flat tops ? and he notes the mis-aligned vin numbers towards the end.   just looking for honesty, if its fake its fake !
I have already had at reputable machine shop he check the deck height and told me this has never been decked and is still flat. so could you restamp a block without first decking it? would it not leave traces of old vin if you didnt?  thx

have a blessed Easter tomorrow!    HE is risen!!!!!

General Discussion / Just bored and wondering ?
« on: December 14, 2017, 03:42:40 AM »
Does anyone else ever look through the orphans section that's appropriate for your model and leave depressed? Lol I look everyday for anything that might be associated by vin to my car and there is nothing, yet there's thousands of items with everyone else's vins.....   I'm just crying in my cereal!  Thanks for listening.

Originality / GT stamps
« on: November 25, 2017, 11:12:59 PM »
I was stripping the paint off of my spark plug towers and noticed it's stamped GT in very small letters? I know the alt bracket has the GT.   Is this common? Is there a company GT that makes brackets for GM back then?

Restoration / Leaf spring restoration
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:15:26 PM »
Has anyone tried dissassembling their leaf packs and cleaning and rebuilding the pack? I think I want to but not sure the new clamps will look right or how hard they are to reclamp?  Or should I just leave them as is?

Can anyone post a known original pic of the gt stamping and any ways to tell real from repro ?  Kinda in a hurry I'm bidding on one that says original gm but the guy selling really doesn't know.  Thanks in advance

Originality / cooling fan and sticker mark on trunk deck
« on: October 28, 2017, 09:21:58 PM »
this fan was in what was left of my trunk in a box with other odds and ends parts, not sure how to tell if its right or a production date, all i find is an "H" on the hub area and "front".    the deck lid has glue for a sticker, im not sure if it signifies anything or if they all had a sticker placed there?
