I just went to Lowes/HD and looked through their selection until I found one that looked good, but I did not write down the size, sorry.

That auction includes two left sides seals, not a pair.  the braces are a pair, but the seals are from the same side.  It is just in the pic, one is right side up and the other is upside down, giving the appearance of a pair.

I have never seen a passenger side seal, like the one on the drivers side.

I will be watching this one to see what it sells for. I wish I could afford another one!

Saw the COPO go across $180K pretty sure.  For that kinda coin, you would think they could install the air cleaner seal properly

Kick panel is first, align door panel to fit against kick panel without rubbing.  then check rear gap.  if the door panel is rubbing on door panel, you can trim 1/8" or 1/4" from the pinchweld to gain more clearance.  you can also trim the cardboard backing of the interior qtr panel to gain more space, just center the window cranks in the interior panels to find the optimal locations.

I agree, the foil tape was on my 10B (of 68) 69 too and I used aluminium tape to recreate it.  It helped the clips stay on.

Here is a good post on what is inside a ram and efforts to fix them and the pump. Smiley http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=207485

The rams are not really repairable. They are pinched around the top and do not come off without cutting and ruining it.  If they are leaking around the fittings, mostly likely is the hose fittings that leaking.  Replace the hoses first if that is the case.  If they are leaking out at the top seal where the chromed rod comes out, then replacement is usually required.  Your curcuit breaker is mounted behing the brake master cyl on the firewall.  you need to inspect all the wiring from the horn relay, back to the motor to see if there are any corroded or poor connections. The motor may need a rebuild as well.

I replied to Steve's email that I had the trim and was ready to ship for a price less than the whole lens goes for and now no answer from him Sad
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where to find 69 Camaro taillight chrome trim? on: October 27, 2013, 07:07:46 AM
Steve, I sent you an email, trim is off. let me know.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where to find 69 Camaro taillight chrome trim? on: October 25, 2013, 11:16:19 AM
Are those part of the style trim group?  I think the base tail lamp lenses do not have those 2 strips but I may be mistaken?

correct on both counts! you are not mistaken Smiley

Yup, I have 2 extras, PM me
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where to find 69 Camaro taillight chrome trim? on: October 25, 2013, 06:12:05 AM
I have a bunch of broken lenses, let me look.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Replace sagging leaf springs on: October 22, 2013, 06:02:31 AM
I have had my original monos re-arched by a local truck spring repair shop.  I put new Eaton monos on there 1st (stock height), but did not like the stance (rear down) and the fact that they did not have the correct taper.  So despite the warning about them not lasting a year or breaking when being re-arched, I had them do a set 1.5" over stock (they had all the stock spring specs) for $1 a pound, came to around $55 total for both springs.  Since they are a rough commercial spring shop, they did not finish them except for spraying some black protective coating.  I stripped that off and applied some cast blast.  That was around 4 years ago and no noticable sagging.  Car still rides right where it was when I had them done (R&H spring, wall, nj) I had a friend that needed factory springs for his COPO, he took a bunch of my spare broken multis to them and they rebuilt them and he is very happy with them. I highly recommend them.  For multi-leaf I would expect the process to be similar, but you have to make sure your plastic spacers are in good shape and make sure they reuse them.  The metal strap that holds the leaf pack will probably have to be replaced as well as the center bolt.

For 69, the grounds are all shared in the taillight housing and the pigtail is screwed to the trunk lock support.  But if the lights light up, then not a ground.  probably the flasher, there are two, one for hazards (on fuse box), the other is for turn (in a clip on the radio support bar, behind ash tray).  Try your hazards, if they work, replace the flasher behind the ash tray.
