Steve,

Posting from a third-party site works better, because it shows the picture on CRG. (Learned that from Ed).
Take a look at Joe's explanation:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1643.0

I cannot tell much from the picture you posted. (Even saved it and tried to enlarge...)  Would you mind sending it to me in a PM?

Well, once again, from John and Ed I'm confident about the tape for mine.  My car does not have the holes for the pins.  It is good to know, however, if you have a late, late 68 those pins are a possibility.  Thanks for the verification, Steve.  And always, thanks CRG!

That is helpful Steve... But now you've opened the question about clips again... and pretty much voided the info. I got on another post at CRG... Do you know for sure that the core support seal on your 07E is original???
1744  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 16, 2007, 01:55:32 PM
Out?!?  Well, yes, for about 30 years...
But fake convertible?  In 68, vinyl tops outsold convertibles 3 to 1, and by 69 5 to 1.  Convertibles were on their way out!  Makes them rare and worth something today.
Don't get me wrong, I love convertibles.  I've owned three.  And yes, the right color of paint... the more the better.
Thanks for posting!  Anybody else?
About ready to put this one to sleep for a while...

Mine don't...  You'll get a rub every now and then in a turn or over a hard bump with those 15x7s on the front.  Not enought, generally to be a problem.
1746  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Firewall Number on: March 15, 2007, 08:29:39 PM
Thanks, John!  Am I correct that an assembly sequence number would be the "locked in" number that you mention in your report on the assembly process?

Sorry to be a little slow in getting back to this... Have to work every now and then to keep my toys up!

Last week I (finally) got original pictures from a previous owner before he painted the firewall in a restoration.  The 254 was the only such marking visible on the whole wall --just like you said.  Like Jonesy's 252, it was mostly covered by the heater box.  There was no sign of PTB markings.

On top of the blackout paint...
1748  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Firewall Number on: March 12, 2007, 02:04:50 PM
I know this is a shot in the dark, but anyone have any idea what the number "254" means crayoned on the firewall (near heater box). I know about firewall markings in general.  I just can't figure out 254...
Thanks in advance.

The problem with companies like State Farm is usually the agent not knowing what you are talking about.  (BTW, I have had my other cars covered by State Farm for over 30 years.)  Some agents seldom get a classic car request, and they wind up not quoting it right.

Still wondering if anyone knows anything about Infinity group???

There are several references that are constanly noted here...
Start here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#InfoSources
Also, Ed had a post a while back that gives several other good references.  You might want to hunt for that... or he might see this and post it again...
1751  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 08, 2007, 11:56:39 AM
Thanks, Steve.  Actually, I've just completed the history of my car.  My trim tag says "YY", but the original owner drove it off the lot with a vinyl top --original dealer installed.  You make a good point about contrast.  In fact, the original owner had the top installed because it really set off a butternut yellow car. So, I'm keeping the vinyl and carrying my documentation to shows.
Let's hear from the rest of you... Post pictures and vote!

I agree with Paul, especially in terms of fit (and obviously, originality), go original if you can.  Beyond the E-scene, if you haven't discovered the best junk yards and swap meets in your area, you should.
I'd be afraid to quote you a real price, as they vary at swap meets, too.

We had a good conversation about suppliers a while back:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1276.0
As you can see opinions vary...
1753  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 clonsole clock info on: March 07, 2007, 09:34:46 AM
"Choices"; i.e., options were part of the appeal in those days.  It was certainly part of the sales pitch --wide variety of motors and options.  Wish that were "truer" nowadays. 
1754  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 clonsole clock info on: March 06, 2007, 03:55:06 PM
FYI:

The part number for a 68 console clock would be 3921410.
$200 may not be a bad price.  The list price for a replacement was $32.30 in the early 70s.
I'd say Paul made a good save from the "crusher".
