3934882 is a 68 Z sticker.
Is your car a doumented Z? Does it have the original wheels?  What are they?

Seeing a lot of new names on the site...
Thought I'd dust this one off and seek more opinions.
Would appreciate your input --both voting and posting.

Blackss69,
Actually, the can (3 oz. tube) he gave me was not GM.  It's Wurth.  So, I don't have a GM part number.  That tube is laying on my work bench next to the car sixty miles away (which I will not get back to for a couple of weeks --darn it) or I'd give you the number off of it.  BTW, nowadays it also comes as grease (or gel like Paul described it) in a tube.
Sorry to not be any more help...  I suspect with this much info., you could find it at an electrical supply like hotroad says.

I've found the glue on stickers is just like paint.  It sticks better if the metal is "warm" --the higher above 50F, th better.

Appreciate the feed back.  I did get a complete answer thanks to you guys.  I was cleaning the connections with alcohol but knew it needed more.  So...
Found a can at my local dealership.  According to the parts guy, the cleaning agent is alcohol, but this stuff also has chemical agents that prevent future oxidation --which is exactly what I was looking for!
Thanks CRG!

My question is about oxidation on electrical connections.  I've heard that there is such a thing as "oxidation solvent", but I've never seen it on the shelf of the auto parts stores.  So what is it and how can I get it?

My reason for my question is simple.  I know my 68 sat for well over a year before I got it.  I've spent the last two winters going through my wiring harnesses, cleaning connections, replacing a bad starter wire, etc.  I can really tell a difference, and I'd like to keep it that way.

I'd appreciate any info or suggestions.  Grin

Retire???  Jerry, we don't want you to retire any time soon!  Where else can we find good work and great information?  When do you think your 4th editions will come out?
1778  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Harrison AC Evaporator Box Decal on: February 12, 2007, 02:38:54 PM
Richard,
I appreciate your keeping an eye out for me.  I'm going to be at big shows in April and May and plan to see what I can eyeball there.  Problem is originality...
Yes, I'd like to see such a picture...
I think you are right.  I think you might find them in various places.  I still think it should be mounted vertically, however, on the Camaro (like on that Skylark.) 
I've got the decal, but I'm still waiting on verification of location.
BTW, the decal looks great. But if its like most of the repo stuff (poor quality glue) and I mount it vertically (without a little glue "reenforcement"), it will probably fall off on the first warm day I drive it.  Oh well...
1779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Questtion: hupcaps vs. wheel covers ('67) on: February 11, 2007, 10:44:50 AM
Cannot speak for the whole country, but I had a great uncle who managed our local Chevrolet dealership and sometimes he would "upgrade" to wheel covers to help sell the car.  In other words the car would come from the factory with the dog dish caps (which, if I were you, that's exactly what I would do now), but somebody would tell the salesman, "I don't like those hub caps!", and the dealership would change them to make the sale.  I'm not saying it was "order of the day", but it did happen...

Well, somewhere between "Buyer beware" and "Presumption of Innocence" is the truth...
Again, bad publicity and over-pricing of misrepresented cars is not good for the hobby, whether at a famous auction or in somebody's backyard.
In the end, makes me glad we have CRG --a good place to discuss and learn!

Jerry,

If you use a third party host site to post your pictures, the photo could be larger (and actually posted on the page).  I'm using photobucket.com.
1782  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: camaro with a slide back sun roof on: February 09, 2007, 04:55:53 PM
The Buick Skylark with a sun roof was called a Sun Coupe.  I know that was true in the early 70s.
1783  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Repro Delco R-59 Battery - Best Place to Buy?? on: February 05, 2007, 09:40:16 AM
I'm interested in what you guys work out... 
It only stands to reason that a present day battery will not fit inside the repo. case, as they have similar dimensions.  What we need is a way to get a good battery's "guts" in a repo case (or original). 
At this point I'm still swayed by John's idea above --especially for a driver. 
But I've got till April to decide.  Let us know what you decide!
1784  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: trim tag body #s? on: February 04, 2007, 02:48:10 PM
John,
Was that because of the delayed introduction of the 1970 2nd Generation Camaro?  And did the numbers reset again when the 70 1/2 car came out or did they continue from August 69?

Whoops! I did mis-speak as Kurt mentions below... I meant to say 69 1/2, referring to the extended run of the 69.
1785  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Repro Delco R-59 Battery - Best Place to Buy?? on: February 04, 2007, 07:28:33 AM
In other words, when NPD (just got their new catalog) and others put "CALL" in the place of price, it means we may have a problem.  That's generally been my experience.  JohnZ is suggesting the present Delco battery as a substitute.  Does it look like an R-59 or is it "flat-topped" like most other present day batteries?  Also, would a topper fit almost any present day battery?
