31  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

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   
34  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
35  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
36  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
37  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.
38  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
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: wiper arms and door handles on: July 11, 2013, 07:06:56 AM
If the ends are pitted, there is not much that can be done.  I have used a glass beader to lightly even out the sheen on 69 wiper arms, but I think the earlier year wipers might have been more polished.  I have used 69 Camaro door handles that need rechroming Smiley 
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Flywheel Inspection Cover Paint on: June 19, 2013, 06:57:58 AM
Good question! I would like to know too.  My guess is no, I think they were dip primed black.

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Starter nose for Z28 starter on: May 07, 2013, 05:36:44 AM
Gary, if you are OK with that 1968122, then we can talk more.  The 1st pic shows the void (right by the flywheel hole) in the casting that mine has. I think that is a feature of the later starter noses.  Tim's pic was solid in that spot. 
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Side Exhaust on my 69 on: April 25, 2013, 06:23:52 AM
Yea, the Hooker sidemounts were very cool, I had a set on mine back in the day! I wish I had a Camaro to put them on again (current rides are numbers cars) and if I could find them (they are no longer available).

lloyd, do you need pics?
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Need advice on new tires? on: April 06, 2013, 06:30:15 AM
I run 215/70R14 TAs on my 14x6 rally on my 69, nice tire, no issues and my car is low Smiley
