Will a late model GM wiper motor work?  I have seen them and they are thin like the DSE one.  Just wondering what mods to the wiring I would need?  Any other mods to consider too?

Thanks guys...I got a terrific response.  As usual, I have lots of 69's, which is great.  I got a few 67's...at least enough to keep me going for a few months.  I only got one 68 though, thanks to Jason Dearduff.  Please keep sending in your pics.  I promise that everyone that sent in a pic will get posted.  If you sent a 67...you will see yours within a few months...you 69 guys will be a little longer but your pic will get to be a homepage car soon enough. 

Thanks to everyone for a great response and keep 'em coming.

I found a set of three NOS wheel well molding and bought them.  Actually, I bought two (2) sets of three moldings that include both driver side and the passenger front, all GM NOS and still in wrapper with screws.  If anyone needs any of the moldings I will sell them for what I paid, which is $100 each plus shipping. 

Finally, if anyone has a passenger rear GM wheel well molding for sale, I would like to buy it.  I will pay big $$$.  Not looking to get a great deal...just looking to get one.

I used to make this request and get a lot of submissions....but lately when I beg all I get are one or two responses.  C'mon guys...surely I haven't posted everyone's car that visits CRG.  I would like to build up the supply of pics and get them ready to use so I don't have to grovel at the end of every month.   So please send in pics of your Camaro.  If you don't have one...send in a pic of your friend's car.  If you don't have a friend with a Camaro...go make some.  Do what I do...next time you go to a car show and see a Camaro you think is cool and worthy of our home page...walk up and talk to the owner and ask him if you can take a pic of his car and submit it for our homepage.  I am sure you won't get no for an answer.  Get the guy's name so we can give him credit for his ride.  Tell him about CRG and how great it is while your at it.  I get a great pic of a Camaro, the guy gets introduced to the coolest Camaro website and his car posted on our homepage, and you get a new friend with a cool Camaro...everybody wins. 

Please Please Please...I want to get lots of submissions.  I promise to post every usable photo I get.  You have now all been deputized as my new photographers in the field, now get busy with your assignment and make all of us proud. 

Send your photos to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks,

I have a set of Goodmark full quarters welded on...am I going to have problems with the OEM wheel well moldings?

What exactly is different from GM quarters and aftermarket?

516  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How well to the 69 reproduction wheel well moldings fit? on: July 17, 2007, 08:20:44 PM
email me a price you would take for all 4 of them...

517  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Aftermarket dash gauge bezels for 1969 Camaro? on: July 17, 2007, 03:48:30 PM
I see Covan and DSE make an aftermarket gauge bezel for 69 Camaro.  I like DSE but it's a bit pricey at $550 and Covans is nice, but not the look I want.  Are there any other companies that anyone can recommend that make an aftermarket gauge bezel for my car?

Thanks,

Steve

I bit the bullet and bought a GM NOS set of three I found on ebay.  The seller has several sets of three and he still has some left if anyone is interested.  Email me and I will give you his contact info.  He only has the fronts and the driver side rear.  I called Rick's and they stated that they only have the driver side GM moldings left and only one of the rear and two of the front.  They further advised me that they are not the nicest as the wrappers fell off long ago and they are scratched and slightly dinged.  Rick's was nice enough to let me know before I ordered.  Rick's further confirmed what is said here...that the repro's aren't too nice.  It still amazes me to this day that they can't make parts with today's technology at least as decent as they did 40 years ago.  It's not like the bar was set too high for quality, but somehow, we can't even match the quality and fitness.  If anyone has or knows of a passenger rear molding for sale, let me know please.  Not looking for it cheap...just looking for it.

I am looking for wheel well moldings for my 69 Camaro.  I see that GM ones are discontinued.  They can be found but at a hefty cost.  Furthermore, the ones I have found for sale are scratched and dinged slightly and not really appropriate for a show car.  I bought a set of repros about 8-10 years ago.  They looked okay but they fit like garbage.  At first I thought I bought a set for a complete different car.  Has anyone had any experience with the latest offering of reproduction moldings?  Do they fit and look better? I don't mind having to finesse a set to get them to fit but I have heard that I may have to cut them up with snips just to get them on.  All opinions welcome.

There must have been something going on at Norwood during April as far as how many cars were built per day.  I just came across a 69 pace car with an 04C build and a VIN of 628591.  My pace car is a 04C with a VIN of 636285.  That means that at least 7,694 Camaros were built during 04C, the third week of April.  Also, I am sure that there are earlier and later VIN's with an 04C which would increase the third week of April's production. With a 5 day work week and two shifts totaling 16 hours per day, based on the VIN's I have, then GM made over 1,540 cars per day for 04C.  That's almost 100 cars per hour.  If you look at CRG's break down of production figures, they show the first VIN of April as 623588.  That means that GM built less than 5,000 cars for the first two weeks of April, 04A and 04B.  CRG shows an ending VIN for April of 637106.  That means, if you assume my car was the last one built in 04C, which I bet it was not, than GM made at most, only 821 cars for 04D and 04E.  April 30th was a Wednesday, so there were 8 weekdays during 04D and 04E, which would mean GM only made about 100 cars per day for the last two weeks of April yet for the third week of April, 04C, they built about 100 cars per hour.  Something doesn't make sense.         

Is there any mistake with my math or was GM really messed up?  Is it possible they could go from building 100 cars per hour in 04C and then drop to about 6 cars per hour the following week?
521  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Camaro pic needed for July Homepage on: July 01, 2007, 04:46:14 PM
Okay...here it is the first day of July and I still don't have a 67 pic for the home page.   If you have a 67, then please send me a pic of it and it will be the featured 67 for the month of July...How cool would that be?   Extra bonus for anyone that sends me a white pic as I have a red 68 and a blue 69 ready to go.  I would like to have red/white/blue in honor of the 4th of July....its all up to the person who has this car to send it to me.  But beggers can't be choosers so I will take any 67 I can get.  Will also take 68 and 69 while I am begging here....so please....send em in....or I post Mustangs from now on.

Thanks guys...send em to the following email.

Not sure about the painless wiring harness...but I used American Autowire to completely rewire my 69 and their kit includes everything....and I mean everything.  I did not have to use anything from the original harness, which was good because I didnt have it.  I have heard that some painless kits require that you have to use some of your old connectors, but I may be wrong.  Anyway, the American Autowire kit was packaged terrificly with all of the wires marked, the directions were easy to follow and the install went smoothly.  It included a new fuse panel with late model fuses and extra circuits for my electric fuel pump, power seats, power windows, Spal radiator fans, plus other extras.  The kit even has separate directions on how to hook up these goodies that were not original.  They planned this kit right in my opinion.   I don't work for them or get commission, but I will give praise to products I have used that I felt were above and beyond what was expected.

The 912 cars per day can not be right...at least for the month of April.  I have a 69 Camaro 04C with a VIN of 636285.  That is 1,721 cars from the last 69 built in April.  Even assuming my car was built on the last day of the third week, that would mean GM only built about 340 cars per day for the last week of April (04D) not to mention I believe that there are some 04E vehicles around for those last few days of an incomplete week in April, which would reduce that 340 number even more. 

Does this sound correct?

524  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Home page pics of your cars needed...send 'em in. on: June 26, 2007, 08:04:27 AM
Hey guys...I need pics of your 67-69 Camaros for the home page.  I know there are lots of you out there that have great pics and don't send 'em in because it's too much trouble or you think that it won't get posted.  You guys that spend lots of time and money making your Camaro nice should spend just a few minutes and send me a pic of your car.  Then everyone will get to see just how cool your ride is.  This goes for everyone out there.  Even if you think your car isn't perfect...send it in anyway.  Our homepage is for ALL you first gen Camaro guys and your beloved cars.  It doesn't have to be show car perfect...it just has to be a Camaro.  So c'mon and please send in your pic.  I need all years.  If you guys can help me out...I would like to get a red/white/blue combination for the month of July to celebrate independence day.  But hey...even if your car is any color...I will take it and I promise it will make it on the site.  Imagine the pride of seeing your very own car gracing the home page of only the best Camaro website ever. 

Send your pics to the email below and thanks.

525  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Looking for a Chevy Swift emblem...any ideas where to buy one? on: June 17, 2007, 09:50:39 AM
I just came back from a trip to Cozumel Mexico.  They have a ton of little vehicles called the Chevy Swift and another version I think is called the Chevy Swing.  Anyway, what I really thought was cool was the factory emblem.  Instead of "Chevrolet" these emblems actually said "Chevy"   I don't think there are any cars in America that use a "Chevy" emblem.  Furthermore, the emblem was dark grey.  I would love to put one of these emblems on my 69 Pro tour car in place of the rear emblem and it looks like it would fit perfectly.  Does anyone have any idea where to get one? 

thanks,

Steve
