The originals are 4oz.

My understanding NCRS will be providing the service as they do for the Corvette. GM & NCRS have some type of agreement and GM provided the access to the records.

Is this a service GM themselves would also provide (for a fee no doubt)? Is NCRS just one more source acting as an outlet?

The source I'm getting my imformation is very knowledgeable and I had him restate the information that was to be provided. I believe these GM records are from a different dept/source from where the corvette records were obtained. This is my understanding but we will see. BTW I sent you a PM.  



68 Rag:

 I was given the info from an NCRS member who is involved with the program. BTW the wholesale invoice # and body # may be one in the same.  

He may be misinformed. Can he provide you with an example Corvette document that shows more information than this?

My understanding is that the documentation being released will not identify options, but will provide dealer with zone# , wholesale invoice # and body #. Perhaps more information will be available or found in the future but that is what I've been told will be provided on the April launch date.

Is your source an insider at GM or just a guy who heard from a guy who read it on the internet?

I ask because that is different information than what is stated in the OP and in the link provided to the service. It says nothing about wholesale invoice # and body #.

This is great news and will provide many owners a trail to the dealer and previous owners and with some luck a pot of gold (documentation).

If it's accurate it appears to be data from an NICB report shipping /assembly record.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Undercoating on inside of quarter panel ??? on: January 10, 2014, 12:54:20 PM
Here's the original undercoating on the inside of the rear quarters in the trunk of my 02D '69 Z/28 - pretty sloppy, doesn't appear that any kind of mask or pattern was used. None of it has flaked or shows any sign of failure under the spatter paint after 45 years.

Hi John, I see your car has a trunk mat. Is your car equipped with deluxe interior or did someone add that. BTW your trunk and spatter paint are very well preserved.
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Undercoating on inside of quarter panel ??? on: January 10, 2014, 12:49:19 PM
Based on what I've seen I believe there was a template or mask used. The coverage area certainly varies but the pressure used, nozzle and distance away contribute to the variations in coverage.

Like that console mounted 8 track player Steve.

Your car looks great on the forum page Brian. Have you dug out from the snow storm? When you're out here we need to get together. Stay warm Smiley

Here's another shot from different angle.

Wood on the wheel and on the dash...
Any idea what the tilt column release lever is from? Looks like Pontiac but the plastic is fluted. I thought Pontiac had smooth plastic.  

The turn signal and tilt have the same knob. That goes for standard interior and deluxe. The example below has deluxe interior. The tilt lever is easily replaced...

Enamel reducer is what I used, this whole engine compartment had been rattlecanned during the 70's, Figuring it to be enamel I tried enamel reducer VIOLA....

FYI this is TEDIOUS AND NASTY work and must be done in a well ventilated area. IT TOOK 20 HOURS PLUS, however the original phosphates etc were beautiful, the car was certified survivor at the 07 Camaro Nationals. 









It seems like yesterday we were Vintage Certifying that car. Wow 7 years in June. BTW you did an amazing job cleaning and detailing the car while preserving the original finishes and stampings.

Also remember that the factory gauge is NOT an "ammeter" - it's not in series with any loads; it's simply a sensitive voltmeter (galvanometer) that senses the voltage at the starter solenoid and at the horn relay screw terminal buss, compares them, and displays the difference as "amp numbers", to indicate whether current is flowing TO or FROM the battery. The last "ammeter" in a GM car was in the '62 Corvette.

The amp meter (really a volt meter) is reading the voltage drop across two points (which act as a shunt). I believe the two points are the horn relay and the terminal block by the battery. The wire between those points has a fixed resistance(acts as a shunt like all amp meters). As the current increases through that wire, a voltage drop is measured (IxR). The voltage drop is in proportion to the amplitude of current flowing between those two points. The meter is calibrated to represent amperage.
