 Talked to Rob today, he is really happy he came and very impressed with the way the car was received, and of course with the cert.  I think we got him hooked on the the show for next year too... Grin
Thanks again, you guys are the best.

Nice seeing you again Steve, the show was amazing, the Yenko display was very special, and I especially liked looking at the survivors..  Cool
 Our Buddy from Cuyahoga Falls was glad he came to the Vintage Certification with his 71 Z28. Nice job with that.

Yes, that is the original owner of the car in Chicago. I think he sold the car since then. Had a nice conversation with him about his car. Nice guy.

It's normally a light grease pencil mark (IIRC, not red). Fisher used it to center the trunk ws. Not very visible, per design.
And very rarely is the ws truly centered.

Totally agree with Kurt, the red mark was the center off the seal. I have seen this on quit a few original cars, slightly to the right of center which put the seam ( Usually, but not always ) left of the latch.
 These marks are pretty common on other Chevy's too, sometime a double paint mark with two colors.
See you in Chicago Steve.

That's because the rear was painted the same time the dash was with the same paint, IMO, they were all like this, IMO.

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.

43  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.

45  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
