A couple of photos showing some of the differences between the original and reproduction brackets. I posted more photos and description on TC.

...never mind, I re-read the thread and located the link for the tube insert in a previous posting. Thanks.

In NCRS Corvette Flight Judging, there's only a very minor token deduction (3 points out of 4500) for use of the reproduction T-3 headlamps instead of originals, due to the night driving safety issue (original T-3's don't throw much more light than a kerosene lantern); originals also tend to "smoke and die" without warning, resulting in deductions during Operations judging.

"original T-3's don't throw much more light than a kerosene lantern"...funny.

Hey Lloyd, your bracket on the grill emblem looks to be installed wrong. Shouldn't it be flipped around? Was it this way on the RS grills?
I think Lloyd's emblem retainer is flipped and rotated, as it should be 'square' with the grill, and with the 'lips' registered around the grill bars.

You can see by the undisturbed speed nuts (previous photo) that the backing plate has been on there a long time. The grill is original to the car and the emblem is in the correct position. I'm not suggesting the backing plate is correctly installed, however it appears the emblem has never been off the grill.

That molding detail doesn't appear on my original RS grill:

Yeah, like the brake booster hose bracket.

Be vigilant Gary, theses unicorns can be found, I recently located this one: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=11264.0

New one installed and leak free

Nice!

Hey Lloyd, can I get a really nice pic of your Z for my computer? Man, I love 10 10 Camaro's.

How could I possibly say no to that...PM your email address Gary and I will send you a high-res photo. 
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 17, 2013, 07:13:05 PM
Gary, from my research this style of fitting is generally what's available from the reproduction parts suppliers:

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Z/28 Power Brake Hose Bracket - Original? on: September 17, 2013, 01:44:39 PM
I have been trying to locate a power brake vacuum hose bracket for my 69 Z and as they are difficult to source they are fairly expensive. I have recently located one however before I make the purchase decision I'd like to confirm its a factory original.  I have a single photo of one I believe to to be original (see photo: "Original Example") that I am using as a reference however I cannot confirm its authenticity.  I've also posted 2 photos of the bracket that I have been offered to purchase (see photos: "Offered to Purchase"). I did note there is a small crack in the corner crease of the bracket. As there are subtle differences between the brackets and as I only have one data point as a reference I would appreciate input from members who have an original bracket. Photos would of course be helpful.

Interesting head marking detail, thanks Jerry.

Lloyd....don't know for sure about the '69 but my original '68 Z28 has two different manufacturers for the exhaust manifold bolts.  One side had the raised circle bolts with a "RSC" inside the circle.  The other side had a flatter circle on the head with a squiggly "X" inside the circle.  My computer that has my camera software on it is down right now so I can't send a photo at present.  Will try later tonight when I get it back up, that is if your interested.

Yes, I'm interested Jerry, please post photos when you can.  I would like to see examples of head markings from a few known original cars as well determine if the photos of the bolts I posted are correct.
