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

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

36  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.
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NEED HELP ASAP!!! Photos of 69 Hockey Stripe - Baldwin Motion stripe too? on: October 10, 2013, 05:53:57 AM
Here was a decal under some primer on my car

And pay close attention to the marker light, engine callout and stripe, they must all be aligned with each other!  Anything that is off it very noticable!


My car is an Oct 68 build so that is the reason for the extra inch inder the seam.

This was a stencil and stripes full paint under clear version. Painter was really pissed about it, the join is right in the middle of the fender, difficult to get seamless!

Here is my bolt in snubber solution

found a replacement snubber that screwed into my plate (gm#3958061). It needs some trimming to sit flush and the bolt shortened, but it fits perfectly. It is sourced to a 1993 Doge D150 pickup - Upper control arm bumper. The Moog part# is K7293
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: wiper motor wiring on: October 03, 2013, 05:39:19 AM
68 Camaros did not have a 4 terminal wiper motor, sounds like you got a generic one.  The top connector is for the constant 12v, the lower two are for speed (depending on ground path).  the switch when turned on actually controls the ground, not power. You will have to test which lower connectors work for low and high speeds. The park function is handled via a different ground path and is a longer explaination Smiley   
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: real tag? on: September 06, 2013, 05:49:21 AM
While it is a nice car, I am voting for a repro trim tag. The car also does not have the wood grain dash or the correct rear qtr interior panels, so I would guess the deluxe interior is not factory either. Smiley The other stampings need some checking with better pics too
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 02, 2013, 01:49:12 PM
Lloyd, I want to THANK YOU!  Within a couple of days of you posting the pics of this, I was looking for a brass fitting for the pool and saw this fitting sitting in my misc brass drawer!  So now that I know what it is, it is now in my drawers of parts for my SS.  I just have to find that short section of oil line I saved someplace with the rest of the fitting on it Smiley
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Best Method to Put in Rear Seat? on: July 17, 2013, 06:07:46 AM
I recently fixed my rear seat.  It was always real hard to remove.  Then I notice one of the frames bars (where the hooks go) was bent.  straightened that.  Then I noticed that the two sides that make up the hook were not even.  one side was longer, so I trimmed that a little and reshaped it to match the other side.  now it slips in with less force Smiley
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Huggar Orange touch up paint on: July 12, 2013, 02:16:45 PM
I use Seymour chevy engine orange with a artist brush to touch up nicks. It is very close, but not exact tint.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Remove trim tag or not ? on: July 11, 2013, 07:13:40 AM
Well, I am not going to get into the debate Smiley but the factory used a punch to install the rivets which bent the tabs outward in the back.  it is quite easy to get back there via the cowl opening and bend the tabs enough to to get the rivets out undamaged.  If you are careful, you should be able to reuse the original rivets, a little artfully applied sand colored seam sealer, paint and you are done.  no biggie Cheesy
