Ed and others,

Thanks for the help, so far...

$125!!! for 68 baffles?!?!  That sheetmetal shop is starting to sound like a good idea!

Again, seal #3937126 was sealed with two sided tape in 68... Does that tape look like the same stuff that is now on weather stripping?

A question and a comment:

Does anyone know anything about Infinity that just bought out Great American's Classic Collector's program?

As long as we're all reading over our policies (including those very important notes by Mark), watch out for "attachments" (those other pages or little pamphlets that they send along with your policy).  There are all sorts of interesting attachments that limit the company's liability --even if you have a declared value.  The most infamous is a "Lesser of" attachment (similar to Mark's note), which limits what they pay to a lesser amount --often tied to "Cash Value".

I want to pick back up on the AC sealing question...

Learned a lot from here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1171.0;all

The 68 AIM, C60/B3, mentions several seals... I've been hunting for over a year and nobody has any original to sell and I can only find seal #3937126 in repo.
 
Does anyone know a source (yes, even repo) of the other seals? (Am I just not looking in the right place?)
Does anyone have any more pictures of the various seals in original cars (Ed has helped a lot, thanks.)
We established in the above post (and from the AIM) that clips were not used in 68.  It was double-sided tape.  Can anyone describe was that looks like?

68rsss327 has asked how the seal went across the fender braces in another post.

I (and I believe others) would really appreciate the help!  Grin

68rs327conv, I'm going to take the AC sealing question to a new thread here in restoration.
Also, look here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1171.0;all
Ed posted a good picture of the seal going over the brace in that thread.

Ed, are there any more pictures --especially ones that show other seals involved with AC sealing? 

See my new thread: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1726.0

For the last week or so, some of us (so it's more than just me) have not been able to open some attached photos.  Any ideas why or what we could do?  Do they expire?

It's not just you zbo2.  I've been having the same problem for about a week now.
1777  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car info on: March 01, 2007, 03:02:30 PM
What's the paint code from the cowl tag? (Whoops!  I need to get my bifocals changed... Thanks John, Sorry, Mike!)

Otherwise, it decodes like this:
69-12437 = 69 Coupe.
01C = Built the Third week of January; NOR = in Norwood Ohio.
711 = Standard Black Bucket Seats.
X44 = non-SS, non-Z28, without style trim

...not sure I would encourage you to clone...  Undecided

(OK, one last post to give anyone still searching some hope...)
I wrote a "hat-in-hand" letter to the gentleman that goes the fartherest back in the info supplied by FDMV.  He turned out to be second owner and knew the first owner (now deceased) and the original dealership!  He also told me where the POP, etc. might be (3rd owner).  At any rate, I now have a full history of my car (even know about the replacement motor and body repair that I suspected) and it cost me $3.00 plus postage!  There is hope!  Keep looking and be polite...

Mike,
I'd say on the shroud.  In the 68 AIM when you look at C60/B3, which shows the seal, it would have covered the sticker.  Ed could verify this one for you.

I still say you need to know what the standards are before you enter... or yes, just go and have fun!

Jeff,

Like your Vette!  They didn't want your pace car???

Jerry,

Amen.  Making people feel "at home" is very important!  It's equally important that no one come away feeling "beat up" from the judging.

Dave,

Thanks again for the pics you emailed me.  I tried pulling your picture up here and got nothing...

Life is good, John.  And you make it better for all who love Camaros!
1783  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Tires on: February 28, 2007, 11:34:45 AM
Yes, the 15x8 will rub on the front --quite a bit...
Lot's of folks run 15x8 on the back and 15x7 on the front.  The 15x7 will rub a little when you go over large bumps, but not in the turns.
Of course, this means new front wheels and tires.
I wouldn't re-do the suspension --again-- if it feels OK.  That's probably not your problem.
1784  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Seattle Area Classic Car Dealers? on: February 21, 2007, 02:03:11 PM
Anybody know any Seattle area classic car dealers?  I've got to go there in a few days and would love to spend what spare time I'll have looking at cars.
Appreciate any advice...
1785  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 rsss on: February 19, 2007, 09:51:37 PM
Obviously, I think butternut yellow is a good color.  If your trim code says Y, then that's the color to restore it for originality.  On that high option car, it's going to be somewhat rare nowadays.  And again, I think it's a great look.
