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?

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?
18  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?
19  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?




21  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)?

After following up with Paragon and providing them photos of the bracket and manufacturer's stamp (photos previously posted), here is what they reported back (combining 2 emails):

Subject: RE: Fuel Line Support Bracket - Paragon Number: 2053K

"We still manufacture this part and still sell it under part# 2053K for
$22.00 dollars. I currently have 42 in stock. This is what's left of the 500
we produced in 2009.The "PR" stamp is ours and stands for Paragon Reproductions"

It is clear and confirmed the bracket with the <Pr> stamp is their reproduction part.

PS: Good work Paul!

I'm going to send Paragon a photo of the bracket I have and enquire if its their repro. Thanks for the info.

No response from Paragon as yet.  Anyone have any conclusive info on the Pr stamp?
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 carb fuel line bracket. on: April 24, 2014, 12:35:10 PM
That price is just crazy;   seriously it is.   My car has one; original (I think) it was on there when the car was bought when I was 18.  It was all bent and
needed straightened.   Never has it crossed  my mind that someone would expect a price like that for one!

Jim

Jim, could you post a photo of the manufacturers stamp if you are confident your bracket is an original?
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 carb fuel line bracket. on: April 24, 2014, 12:32:24 PM
Thought of 'PR' for Paragon Reproductions, but can't think of any similar examples of a reproduction item of this nature on which the reproducer marks their logo in a prominent place.

I emailed Paragon last night and haven't heard back from them yet. If anyone has a repop bracket from HBC or Paragon, please post a photo, I'd be interested to see if the Pr stamp belongs to Paragon.

What prompted me to post the question was the manufacturer's stamp <Pr> on the eBay listed bracket appears to be the same stamp on the bracket I posted.

Lloyd,

The P over the R looks like the Pparagon Rproductions logo...

 Huh

Paul

Interesting observation Paul. There are clear similarities between the Paragon logo and bracket stamp however the font, stylized "R" and surrounding brackets are formed differently. I checked their web site and couldn't locate a bracket like this and its not clear if they are an agency vendor or also commission parts manufacturing.  I'd like to get to some closure.

I've had this fuel line bracket for a while however it's not correct for my 4C build date Z. For those of you who have an original, is this a real one or a re-pop?
