Lloyd I see what you mean about the missing dimples, that water shield material looks good also. George

George, importantly you've contributed significantly to this topic - many thanks!

I contacted Repops today and was told they do sell the watershield and sound deadener in bulk rolls as follows:

12'x4' Universal Watershield Material
39'x72" Sound Deadener Material

They don't sell retail direct so I'm working on placing an order through one of Repops' retailers. Speaking with their Sales Manager I was told the Watershield material is black on one side and manila on the other.

"First it was missing some dimpling mid pan (similar to the dimpling around the jack hook loop) which needed to be replicated "

Convertible version Hook anchor location?

Jim, the AMD pan omitted dimples mid pan (as circled) and as far as I know these dimples were stamped in all 1969 Camaro original trunk pans.

Lloyd, Yes I did replace the trunk panel in my car. Had too many rust pin holes. What differences are you seeing?
The water shield you refereed to from Repo's is black, not at all like brown craft paper. After the glue dried on mine I sprayed with WD40 and wrinkled it slightly, looked just like the originals I have seen. George

I needed a partial lower trunk floor replacement and the AMD pan I used had 2 notable differences vs the original factory pan. First it was missing some dimpling mid pan (similar to the dimpling around the jack hook loop) which needed to be replicated and second, the drain hole surround stampings use a shallower drop off radius (you can see these differences in the photo below you posted). So to correct this we grafted in the original drain hole surrounds from my original pan. I plan to contact Repops today however according to their current web site some of the water shields they now show use a manila colored paper.

George, I’m trying to understand the small differences between your pad and the original in the photo. Is your trunk floor original or has it been replaced?

Great post George - thanks, I browsed Repop's web site and they make all kinds of automotive restoration sound deadening and water shield kits. They don't make a '69 trunk insulating pad. I plan to call them tomorrow to ask about selling me some bulk/uncut material. I think the water shield may work well for the paper top. Will post once I have more info.

Will-do Bentley, I'm hoping that another CRG member has a source for the material and will post their findings here.

PS - in researching the trunk splatter paint and (inside quarter panel) spray-on sound deadening processes for my restoration I discovered that most all of the photos of original '69 and '68 trunks I've seen show spatter paint coverage on the back of the seat braces however no further up than the mid point. Seems spatter coverage does vary on the braces however it's generally poor. On my car (see Post #27) there was almost no spatter paint from the factory on the seat braces.

I'm reviving this thread because I'm now researching the trunk insulation pad that was originally on my 4C Norwood built 1969 RS/Z with 712 Deluxe Black (Comfortweave) interior and I'm coming up short where to source suitable replacement material - anyone solve this?

Originality / Re: Factory Power steering box
« on: November 26, 2018, 07:02:04 PM »
Was the Power steering box on a 1969 camaro, from the factory painted or bare metal?

From my experience most all components of the power steering unit are "natural" including the case, inspection cover, backlash adjuster screw & lock-nut and the input shaft. The exceptions are the output shaft splines (pitman) are copper plated and the access cover bolts are manganese phosphated.

Nice!   What sort of finish did you apply to the clip?

The clip was vapor blasted, so its unplated steel, then treated with rust preventative like Boeshield.

Restoration / Re: 1969 Z/28 Radiator Core - Source?
« on: July 10, 2018, 01:35:22 AM »
Rick's now offers these repro's.  Anyone know if they are as good as advertised ?
https://www.rickscamaros.com/camaro-harrison-radiators-show-quality-correct.html
Didn't check them all, but for every type of radiator offered in the list that I clicked on via that link, they all said 'availability: discontinued'.
I'd suggest Eckler's was previously sourcing these from Heartbeat City, as far as I know they are the only manufacturer licensed to reproduce parts with the 'HARRISON' logo.
Ties in with Lloyd's comment in the original post, that even HBC has no current stock.

Tim, I noted that HBC is out of stock on the 3 row radiator cores, they currently list the full Harrison licenced radiator as “in stock” : http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/13464/1967-1968-1969-Camaro-%26-Firebird-3-Core-Radiator-SB-302-307-327-350-400-With-Manual-Transmission-Without-AC/. The site image has the watermark “US Radiator”.

Thanks for the ideas and input, seems Tanks 'N Tabs in Nashville is no longer in operation. Tim, I browsed the web site for Glen-Ray Radiators in WI and quickly concluded they are a Mopar-only shop...reading on, they make passing reference they also do rad work for other muscle cars so I called.  I spoke with the shop owner, Bob Schirmer who told me that Mopar is their bread and butter however specialty shops like theirs  (read: attention to detail and quality) are becoming harder to find so demand has enabled them to branch out to service other marques and they routinely do GM and Ford work. Bob said that he's been getting several Shelby rads in recently as the word has spread in that hobby community. He seemed knowledgeable about the details I asked about and can source GM OEM style 3 row cores so I'm going to send him both my rad and heater core. He was insistent that as a they are a full service shop they will also body-work the tanks as needed to address dents etc as too often what they receive from customers following body shop repairs needs correction. I will post more on this as progress continues .

Restoration / 1969 Z/28 Radiator Core - Source?
« on: July 05, 2018, 12:13:13 AM »
I am trying to locate a new, replacement 3 row, 20 3/4" radiator core for my 1969 Z/28 project with OE style fins that will pass judging. I plan to re-use the original dated Harrison tanks and channels however need a core. I checked Heartbeat City and they have no stock and are back-ordered. I searched CRG threads and didn't come up with much.  Does anyone have a source for an original style Z/28 radiator core?
