Hey guys, heres an ebay auction with what looks to be a decent 3-point retractable seat belt setup.  Anyone have any experience with these or have seen them personally?  How do they look and function?  With the cost of the Morris brand setup at over $300, this seems like a better deal.  Maybe these aren't as nice as the Morris, but if they do their job, I may give them a go.  Anyone have any input?

I knew posting it here would come up with a solution.  I took a lens, 1000 grit wet sanded it, and buffed it out from there.  Came out perfect.  Now, how do I get the light colored.  If I am correct, it looks like I am supposed to color the angle part of the lens, and the lens will glow that color.  I changed the green plastic in the gauge cluster to blue, so that should be all I need to do for this lens.

Thanks for the help.  It worked great.

They are ready to go.  Email me with your needs and I will send an invoice from paypal, or my mailing address if you want to pay that way.  Whatever you prefer.  They are ready NOW!!!

Thanks,
Steve

Well, after tons of research, phone calls, samples, and some engineering of my own, I have been able to order and customize components to make what I feel, are almost perfect reproductions of the passenger seat cable.  The size, length, thickness, and eyelets are exact.  The only thing not exact is a slight difference in the shading of grey, which may be from age.  I have also found correct shoulder bolts as well, in case anyone needs these too.  I am still working on the washer, and have something in the works where I may be able to get them made in the next few months.  I have made the cables in both grey and black.  I guarantee each to be exact and as strong as the factory GM cables.  If the cable breaks, I will replace it for free. 

I am hoping that $9 for a seat cable is considered fair, as I am simply trying to cover my costs.  If you need a pair of shoulder bolts as well, they would be an add'l $5.  Shipping is $3. 

If you are interested, please email me and let me know what you need.  You can send me payment through snail mail, or paypal is fine if that is easier. 

Thanks guys,

Steve

That looks like the same stuff on the underside of my 69 pace car.  It was dealer installed and they charged the owner $35 for it.

I couldn't make a straight line with a ruler, and I am sure I could never cut the slots even close to correct or nice looking.  Any ideas who I could look to have this made?  Not even sure who I would contact.

I used double sided tape over two years ago now, and the glass is still firm and in place and not loose at all. 
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Are 71 Cutlass front parking lights the same as 69 Camaro? on: June 03, 2014, 04:14:29 PM
The bases are the exact same.  The lenses look similar, but  the Cutlass has a larger "brow", and would stick out.  However, the bases will work.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Do they make clear AC/Heater Control lenses without lettering? on: June 03, 2014, 04:12:39 PM
I am wondering if it is possible to get an AC/heater control lens with no lettering at all.  I doubt it, but figured I would ask and see if maybe there is a way to get one.  I mean, just grab the lens BEFORE it goes to the lettering phase of the process and ship it out.  The reason is for my 69, I had custom-made brushed stainless plates made and have installed them where you would typically see the wood grain at the headlight/wiper section, and the radio plate.  I also had the same brushed silver plate made to fit the AC control, and had custom lettering etched into it.  I then painted the metal dash at the ashtray and glovebox area the same metallic pearl silver as the outside of my car, and installed the "Oh Crap" handle over a custome black anodized plate with the "Camaro" lettering etched.  It looks awesome. 

However, the AC control without a clear lens, does not get any lighting at night, and I would like to install a lens over it for the lighting effect.  However, they all have lettering and my custom etched lettering looks much nicer.  So, if amyone knows of a way to find an unlettered AC control lens, I would be thrilled.  A long shot, but thought I would ask.

Thanks,

Steve

My sincerest thanks to Darrell Cook for the speedo.  It is exactly what I needed, and is already installed and works great.  THANK YOU.  : )

Just a regular good old fashioned 120 mph speedo is perfect.  No frills necessary.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need a speedometer for a 69 Camaro. on: May 25, 2014, 09:17:56 AM
Hey guys,

I wanted to start here and see if anyone has an old factory 120mph speedo for a 69 sitting around that no longer needs it and wants to turn it into come money.  If so, I would be interested in buying it.  Email to let me know what you feel is a fair price, and condition.

Thanks,
Steve

I have a 69 Pace Car with a build date about a week earlier and a VIN about 2,000 earlier.  My partial VIN is stamped by the oil pad as well, and it is not even remotely as clear as the one on this vehicle.  Futhermore, it has a 9 in front of the N.  Just sayin.

Kurt,

From what I understand, the pics were received in time by the person who posts the pics for the homepage.  However, due to the deviation from what has been the standard monthly photo submission, he was unsure if he should post them and chose to wait for your approval first.  I have been submitting photos within this same time-frame manner for over ten years, with no problems until now.  I was not made aware of this added layer of beaurcracy and the need of a reveiw of the submissions prior to their being posted, as again, it has never been an issue before now.  From now on, I will make an effort to submit time-sensative photos submissions in a more timely manner.   

If you would like to discuss this further, I can only suggest that the open forum may not be the best place to address this matter.
