OK, thanks for the info....where are the triangular reinforcements located?

There here, not used on 67 cars, check you survivors cars.

This drives me even more nutty than upside-down cowl induction air-cleaner seals........

Aren't the rubber dust sheilds that are stapled to the front wheel housings supposed to go into the upper a-arm holes to keep them from flapping around?Huh?

That's why the sheilds have a t-flaps to go into these holes......right?Huh??

Please tell me I'm right.......almost every first gen Camaro I've seen has the rubber sheilds just laying over the upper control arms which defeats the purpose of keeping road dirt and water from going into the engine bay?Huh  Huh


Camaronut....thank you, both of those make me nuts too. I once restored a 69 Zee and the first thing the owner did was reach down into the engine bay and pull out the rubber shields from the upper control arms, his comment, why did you put them in there....:>(

Those are good dates for a 04C car, I think you are correct no march wheels.

Here is  DG interior 69 Z28, zoom in and look at the aera where the light is reflecting, suede finish. When I looked at this car this area matched the dash to a "T", wish now I had better pictures.
 Take ever opportunity you get to study original cars.

37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: suade paint on rear window trim on: February 28, 2012, 05:50:44 PM
I believe the metal area around the lower rear window area was painted the same time the dash was and is also suede finish, seen it on more than a handful of original cars.

Here's one from a 1100 mile 10D Norwood car, looks like clear cad/zinc to me.

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake Line Brackets - Subframe and Rear Axle - Correct Finish? on: February 17, 2012, 11:22:06 PM
I thought all these were dipped black?  All of the 69 ones I cleaned were.

I agree, at least the 69's

My observation on the valve with the tack welded wire support shows up on allot on 68 Chevrolets and Vette's and was uesd on early run 69 cars as well. I have no clue as to when this valve started.

 I believe your observation on the 67 and 68 cars is spot on. I believe the zinc plated horn bolts were superceded to dark phosphate around the early run of  69 Cheverolets. That has just been my observation from looking at unmolested cars.
Most 69's hand very few zinc plated fasteners under the hood. Exceptions being some of the sheetmetal screws like VR, horn relay, ground straps, and washer bottle bracket hold down screws.
 I am not at home now and can not give you the page #'s and PN's now. But in my two coppies of the 69 Camaro Assembly manual where it shows one of the horns and bolt detail, there is a revision to that bolt, dated I believe 10/68. In the lower revision box on that page it states the # of the zinc fastener and the word "Was". I believe on Camaros they started using the same dark phosphate bolt that holds the lower hood latch to the core support and header. Not serated, and with a captured washer.
 I had asked Steve Shauger this same question awhile back concerning horn bolts on 69 Camaros. I believe he told me that he had seen Zinc horn bolts on some early 69's only.
 Always take the time to soak in all the detail stuff on unrestored cars, not just Camaros.

I also got to meet and talk with Bob @ MCACN. Bob thank you for putting up with me and my flashlight, just could not stop looking at this wonderfull survivor.
 I was also intrigued by the OE black out on the rear panel of your car, tape lines and all.

Thanks Mike
