hard to tell from those pictures was looking for a red seal on the later models that look like that.
I have a ton of these will try to see if they have Eaton stamped on the front.

Yes - I have a serious hoarding problem....    Grin

Front looks good... lets see the back side?
19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 12, 2013, 01:21:58 PM
Yes - those are assembly line correct for 67 - 70 Camaros.  And Corvettes Smiley

The blade holders are different though.
63-65 corvette - bright chrome - flat  <Trico>  Dots rubbers
66 Corvette same as 67 Camaro  <Trico> some Corvettes used Anco from the plant in 67.
67 had peaked blade reading <Trico>
69 had peaked blade reading  <Trico> made in USA
70 used the push pin blades like Novas.

somewhere along the line the "squished flat peak" blades were used - may have been in Late 69  I am not sure when the change occurred.

I grabbed 2 more sets - just can't help myself Roll Eyes

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 12, 2013, 10:45:38 AM
looks good
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 03:29:01 PM
when I bought these I could have bought 12 cases - -and I should have. There is no supplier for these anymore.
just bought one case with 12 boxes.
Haven't been made like this for over 40 years.

the wife saiid I was nuts, just like she did when I bought all the R12 I could grab.
The freon was only $1.99 a pound on closeout at Sears.  Wink
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 02:22:33 PM
LOL - no I mean one case of 12 pairs.

I can take a picture later.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 01:17:16 PM
The 1969 and early 70's refills and the original assembly line were exactly the same. 3 ribs, patent numbers, and skeleton back.

The ones with the metal strip were later years or may even have been for a different arm type?
these were available from Trico as:just the rubber Refills = RF, or Complete blades = I think those were tagged LF?

I saved a 12 case of these for myself - last time someone managed to convince me to part with a pair - think they paid me $35.

When I went looking for that picture today and found the Dots pair for 63-65. I had to control myself and not buy them for $100.
those are just impossible to find for the Corvettes. and the ones on my 63 driver car are streaking a bit   Shocked

my wife would not be happy if she found that I paid $100 for a set of wiper refills, especially when I don't like to drive the car in the rain.  LOL

Here are the pics of the refills I got off ebay. Top pic 16" you can clearly see the skeleton the bottom pic 15" not so clearly. When they come in I'll post better pics.

That's them...  Smiley
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 05:36:48 AM
they will fit just fine, but they are not 1969 correct.

This picture is of earlier refills from 1965 with the dots, but the backbone would still be the same for 67 - 69's.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 09, 2013, 08:44:03 PM
Just scanned ebay, there is a NOS set as a "buy it now" for $29, or you can make the guy an offer, and get an even better deal. Auction #160917044917

Hard to tell from the pictures, but I don't think those are correct.
Originals had a "skeleton like" backbone - those look to be a solid metal strip?
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gardner Exhaust Rusting from the Inside/Install Stainless? on: December 27, 2012, 12:41:05 AM
The Gardner system has problems - unfortunately if or whenever there is a problem with the product it is never their responsibility.  At 3 times the price of the other available systems you would think that maybe they would make SOME effort for any manufacturing defects.

Nope you obviously mistreated the system.
But I guess you are good now because they have told you NOW it won't rust - just like they told you the last time.  LOL

Before you spend any money for Gardner's VERY VERY EXPENSIVE exhaust system.
read this ---> http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=168582 the trouble started on page 3.

Have you looked at the systems from D&R - A great system at a great price. www.drclassic.com
Every bit as original for 1/3rd the price.

if you really need stainless, then try these guys ---> www.waldronexhaust.com

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is correct "grey tip" oil dipstick for 1968 small blocks? on: May 22, 2012, 07:55:54 PM
I started to notice a pattern after a while - all the "M" sticks were the round handles.
All the "E" sticks were the flattened curves.
The "E" sticks came in two versions also - - some with color coded tips, and some with squished flat ends.  - -

There were W's and circle B's  - - there were a few more markings that I have seen....
Those are the manufactures designation code - I would think???

I believe they were all being used interchangeably - - the wording on the sticks is what was consistent from year to year.
Also the length, and full markings - remained constant for the different applications...
As the GM recommended oil quality changed - so did the wording on the sticks.

Yes - I got to know a lot of dip sticks over the years Grin

That is not a "dimple" dipstick.  just a funny bend.  See below for a later stick with Dimple....
The writing on the stick looks perfectly correct to me.
the shape of the handle is not what I typically see for 68 SB, but i would imagine that more then one or two vendors were making those at the time.

That looks like a correct 1968 stick to me...
