Another good substitute for the black rub material for the front window guides that I have used often is black velcro ( the loop side that is thicker) 2 " works good.

I have restored at least 100 or more 69 Camaro parking lights, allot of the cores I have purchaced had OEM amber painted lamps still in place, with a blue glass insulator for the two contacts.

re; 69 Camaro A.I.M, upc Z21. item# 4, 3853846, added by revision 4 in late 1968 ( hard to read the full date in my crappy copy)
 I believe some cars did get the bright zinc bolts. Some of what I understand is based on talking to other Camaro restorers who have seen these on original cars.
Never say never  :>)

What you guys said, molded in gray plastic. Have cut into a few for repairs.

Looks like a good one to me based on others I have pictures of.

Looks like a repop trim tag, ??

Fast & Firm is garbage, gets brittle and cracks. That's what shops used eons ago before urethane sealers entered the profession. If you do not have a gun for 2 part sealer, Lord Fusor 800EZ is a quality product and tools nicely.

Ditto the Lord Fusor X2, that stuff is great, I love and it does not flash off real fast.

Sure looks like a early 69 walnut wheel to me.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear bumper bracket rivets on: January 07, 2014, 10:14:29 AM
I wanted to rivet on the rear bumper bracket as original and bought the reproduction rivets. They did not work for me because the top of the rivet you peen over was too small in diameter, would not fill the hole after peening. I made up my own, plated them dark phosphate, and installed them with an air hammer using a long punch. 
I used the rivets on my '67 bracket, and put a 1/4 in. flat washer on the small section of the rivet, then peened the end with air hammer and flat head attachment.  Worked great.

I have done the same washer trick several times also, this is the only way I know that works well to get them tight.

It is on the underside, and under the sheetmetal heat shield.
