OK, I stand corrected...
Ed, in the end your post did lead me to what my real question should have been: Should my car have the marks? (And do I have original glass?)  Thanks to Rich's report the answer is most likely "no" to the first question.  My 68 is not an early build.  (And I'm going to take Rich's report and answer the original glass question this afternoon.)
Thanks, CRG!

Ray Miller in Camaro: Classy Chassis shows pictures of the astro ventilation decals for both the driver and passenger's sides on the 68.  The 68 AIM doesn't even mention all those "extraneous" decals that most folks scraped off right after they drove the car home.  (Then again, some folks threw away the protecto plates...)  What do the members think about those astro ventilation decals?  Is that taking originality too far?
1878  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 front bumper guards on: November 29, 2006, 11:19:35 PM
Part of the confusion might come from the original GM illustrations for 68 front bumper guards.  Under custom features the illustration for front guards looks shorter...

Listen to Hotrod...  Anyone who drove aggressively or had a teenager in the 60s knew about the Powerglide "slip".  In other words, if you drove aggressively, it was only a matter of time once you started feeling that slip in your glide.  My sister personally proved this in 3 months from her 16th birthday on a 67 Chevelle.  When the THM 350 came out in 69 they quickly outsold the glides and for good reason.  If you wanted power and performance in 67 you drove a stick.

In recent years, I've had a 57 Bel Air, a 61 Impala, and now, a 68 Camaro with glide.  They've all done fine, but my purpose in each of those cars was for cruising and shows.  If I planned to do more on the performance side, I'd at least put in a THM350.

Yes!  Thanks! And sorry to be so much trouble.
So the 67 stampings really were "hidden".
1881  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct color for '68 underbody on: November 25, 2006, 07:19:16 PM

Do take a look at William's comments in the thread that Richard mentions.  I think William hit the nail right on the head!  That nice, uniform black underbody is "show car stuff". But do make sure you catch William's 2nd post in that thread and JohnZ's comments.  It's equally hard to make resto. painting look "original".

I spent four hours the other day with the guy who does a lot of the historic preservation certifications for AACA.  I learned (among a lot of things) that underbody restoration is an art unto itself.

Sounds like you're about ready to get your car back together and on the road.  As you know, Thanksgiving day turned out to be a great day for cruising here in NC!
1882  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What kind of glue? on: November 24, 2006, 02:39:32 PM
Appreciate it, John!
Once you explained it, I went back to the AIM and saw how it happened...
It's great to get the info. from someone who saw it happen!  Grin Grin Grin
1883  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / What kind of glue? on: November 24, 2006, 10:23:11 AM
John or anybody,

OK, I realize this would be a good question for Trivial Pursuit, but what kind of glue was ORIGINALLY used for things like the tire pressure or jack instructions?  The AIM shows that glue was applied (even how much) and I've gathered from other posts on CRG that this was done with a glue gun.  (JohnZ mentions that some broadcast sheets were glued to the top of the gas tank at Van Nuys.) But what kind of glue?  Clear or white? Water-soluble or not?

Is there a way to attach pictures in email messages?  Buddy and I have tried unsuccessfully several times to send a picture through the message function of CRG.
1885  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: How do members stand on dealer installed undercoating? on: November 22, 2006, 11:57:23 AM
Thanks a million, John!  The previous owner of my car did the black underbody painting, but it appears he did not do the wheel wells.  This helps a lot.
1886  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How much effect does CE engine code have on value? on: November 22, 2006, 11:41:48 AM
It's just that some 69s did have a return line.
Look here:  --in the chart under return fuel line.

The 69 folks outnumber we 68s and 67s.  So, eventually references at least imply 69 stuff.  You'll get used to it.   Wink  In fact, learning the differences is very helpful.

It's great to have another 68 in the crowd!  Grin  Grin  Grin

So, the factory coverage was partial? Where? (That's what I'm trying to figure.)
1888  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Pilot Bushing Installation Depth?? on: November 21, 2006, 03:59:55 PM
We're with you, RobF!  I love my Camaro, but any 30s Ford is a great temptation.  Of course, it's not just the cash for the car and resto.  You also have to have a place to store it!

You've got any easy job if you are trying to kill the upcoming Camaro.  GM will do most of your work for you, I'm afraid! Can you tell us what you have worked on???
1889  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 327 / 210HP - TORQUE? on: November 18, 2006, 02:12:54 PM
I got that figure straight out of the 68 Camaro literature that GM sends out when you call their toll free number and ask for it.  The info is free!

Look here:

Although, I do agree with these other guys.  That's pretty optimistc.
