1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: March 10, 2015, 06:02:35 PM
Lloyd, yesterday looked at a 06A NOR Camaro that had original paint and was a pretty neat car (un-restored) and it had peaked blades.
Bill's car is 03D!

Thanks Chick, based on very limited data it seems the peaked style TRICO blade continued to be installed on Camaros as original equipment (Norwood and Van Nuys?) until at least early June, 1969.  I would be interested in hearing from others with original wiper blades.

The exact same blades (not arms) were also used on '66-'67 Corvettes.
Agree John but I think those used in 66/67 did not have "made in USA" stamped in.

On Corvettes, the "Made In USA" stamp (on one end of the peaked holder) started in January, 1967, and was phased in on BOTH ends by the end of the model year.

John, for greater clarity, do the wiper blades on your Z/28 have the "MADE IN USA" stamp on both ends of each blade?

From my review, 1968 Camaros used a peaked style TRICO brushed stainless wiper blade stamped MADE IN USA (Photos 1 & 2). As best I can determine this peaked design carried through into the 1969 production year however at some point Chevrolet switched to a bevelled design (Photos 3 & 4). Does anyone have information on when the bevelled design came into assembly line use?

Good detective work Lloyd, I guess you could tell that from the number of feedback stars of the previous buyer being the same as the new seller?Pity that it appears it's being flipped again so soon, but perhaps the current seller only bought it for the original fuel line, and didn't need the support bracket.....

Correct, the Buyer's (who is now the Seller) eBay feedback score was identical and the abbreviated eBay member name fit.

No surprise, here's another one for sale on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/271515458373

Tim, its actually the same one that recently sold for $625, this time the previous buyer is selling it without the fuel line & distribution block.

Wow..  he's either looking for $750, or $250 each for 3 sets?...  pretty expensive..  but I did like his photography.. Smiley
I'm sure people are gonna jump all over that.. Smiley

$250 per set is my take. Its an interesting "mixed set", 14 of the 28 pieces required are included and a combination of mostly restored with some used/survivor fasteners.

AMK lists their 'G-4320' kit for the '69 Camaro Z28 front spoiler, and says:  CONI SEMS, HXWA SCREWS, NUTS, WA'S    28 pieces,  $8.00

Has anyone purchased this kit who can tell or show us exactly what was included?

Gary, here is a photo of the AMK G-4320 Kit that I located online. The (4) spoiler to lower valance bolts appear to have an integrated rather than captured washer with no head marking. The nuts appear to be the correct design.

LLoyd - took mine off the 69Z that we are restoring as we speak....and cannot find where I put them.  as soon as I can find them ill post a pic...this is 9D car of 69 we are restoring with orig spiler bolts and nuts

LOL...oh oh...keep looking Eddie!
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 02, 2014, 12:09:49 PM
Do-over...

Do these bolts appear to be original and correct? Does the "E" head marking correspond to a known (mid-1969) Chevrolet fastener supplier?




10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 02, 2014, 09:26:01 AM
Have we been giving lengths as overall?
I sold MRO supplies for Bowman fastener company and we always gave measurements from the seat (bottom face) of the bolt.
I would say that is 1/2" long.


Yes, of course (momentary lapse) thanks James.  

Anyone with a photo of a set of original spoiler bolts/nuts?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 01, 2014, 08:11:27 PM
Looks correct to me

Not too short Eddie? 5/8" vs 3/4" in the AIM?
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 01, 2014, 06:59:16 PM
The 1969 AIM specifies the spoiler-to-lower valance bolts as #9417075 #10-24 x 3/4" with a captured washer and #10-24 nut with captured washer #3759924. Do these bolts look like originals?

Lloyd,

Bair's Corvettes (http://www.bairs.com) sells them. I got mine at Carlisle from them a few weeks ago.....a bank busting $1.00!

Bob

Bob, I have run across several sources for the vent tube however none that offer an all-white version. The version listed in Bair's Corvette catalogue is multi-color and not correct for our cars.  Did you purchase an all-white one from them?




14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 12 Bolt Vent Tube on: May 27, 2014, 05:15:03 PM
Not sure if they turned ivory over time but the corvette houses sell the exact vent tube but its white. Danco with the same lettering! Here is an example!


Chick, which Corvette vendor sells these vents (in all white as shown)?
