I have a set of new rivets that I can let go cheap Smiley  Here are some pics of my bumper rivet lookalike project.  I used a nylon locknut and needle-nose pliers to hold the bolt during install.

I bought a set and could not figure them out.  What I did is take some stainless carriage bolts and cutdown the head so it matched the rivet shape. They look almost orig and wont rust and was a snap to put on!

They dont list the transverse system on thier website.  How much is it and do they have a convertible version?
379  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 67-69 Camaro Convertible windshield decode? on: February 25, 2007, 01:04:38 PM
After seeing an original windshield on ebay, I decided to look at the one that has been sitting on my SS for over 20 years. I bought it somewhere in the 80s, not sure where, but it did not come on the car and has junk yard writing on it.

It is a tinted 67-69 Camaro/Firebird Convertible windshield with the shaded top. the marking on the glass are as follows:

SHADED
SOFT-RAY
SAFETY PPG PLATE
AS-1 1-A7
LAMINATED
M23

It has a little wiper haze, but that should buff out

$200-$450 depending on condition and completeness.  I costs around $250 to have them rebuilt.

Are you talking permanetly?   
382  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rear bench seat on: February 11, 2007, 11:25:16 AM
Convertible rear seat and folding seat are the same 48in.  Standard coupe seats are around 51-52 inches.  You can tell easy by looking at the bases.  standard coupe base have 2 scallops in the back corners for the wheel well, convert and fold downs dont have the scallop.

The Ys I can recast.  I have 3 available now, Dave asked for 2, but I dont have any idea what to charge.  I was going to throw them into the restored wiper motors.  If someone wants to make an offer, just le me know.

Dave, Now the Y fittings I have recast! Smiley  I have a couple of my first casts available.  Here is a pic of one with a RS wiper motor I restored for ebay (which I havent finished yet). I repro the soleniod plastic parts and have recast them in an amber yellow color(to try to match yellowed originals) and this is a test pic to see if the color come through (which is doesnt) Sad

Jeff, cant help you on finding a rad, but a local rad shop guy is skilled and took a tamraz rad (core looks very close) and mounted the my SS350 original tanks for $50.
387  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Headlight washer system T-Valves on: November 13, 2006, 03:26:20 PM
I have cut one of these open for recasting them (I havent got there yet), there is a ball the fits in a cone shaped area (1 on each end).  The ball allows fluid to go from the center connection to the ends, but block flow from the ends to the center.  You need 2.  one for the outflow to the windsheild and one for the headlight washer.  The pic shows the correct location for the winsheild, but the length of the hose from the soleniod varies.  headlight one it right above drivers side.  Primary feed goes to the center, each edge goes to each headlight T, then to squirters.  The AIM pic is pretty good for routing.

389  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Rear Shoulder Belts for 1969 Convert. on: October 26, 2006, 02:59:44 PM
They come up on ebay infrequently.  The issue with the factory type belts, is that it does not give, so you have to belt up a hands width inbetween.  The long belt also goes underneath the folded top.  So dont buckle up and then fold the top, you will crush them! Top down 1st, then buckle. It was not really a well thought out design.  I have made a couple of convert belts, but belt work is on the back burner until I finish one of my cars.  You need longer webbing and a couple of special parts.  Here are some front ones item 110046854773, rear ones are about a foot longer than fronts.

Sam, there were a bunch of manufacturers used during those years.  The most common are "C", "A" "TR" "M" and a circle looking mark.
