It was green 3M tape, only did it in one small spot, just pulled the outside layer off.  Another good alternative is to wrap it with wire harness black wrap.

Some of this may be helpfull, be careful using tape, I pulled some rubber loose with tape, and be careful tugging to hard on the edges.

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gas cap for '69 Camaro GM part number #3931449 on: February 08, 2015, 10:04:34 PM
I suspect this cap is no longer correct for a '69.  A '69 gas cap should be "vented".   The caps I've been getting are in AC Delco boxes and use GM#3931449.  The last 3 caps I have gotten are not actually vented causing the needle and seat to seep. This causes a gas smell to build up the my garage after driving my car.  I have to remove the gas cap to relieve the back pressure.

These caps are marked "Vented" but are in fact "Non Vented caps"   The non-vented caps appear to be of the same construction.

Where can I get a correct gas cap?  My local dealerships don't stock the caps any longer but can order them, but they are not correct.

Ideas please.  I have been able to find good caps in the past but not lately.  Dave

Read this thread, your cap should not be vented directly to atmosphere

FYI
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  :>)

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.
