2791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN sequence is off by two weeks on: July 22, 2007, 12:02:47 AM
1. Build dates are approximates. Fisher had no reason to be rigorous about them.

2. The answer is right there in the monthly VIN listing that you referenced (http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#HowMany) :
Due to several limitations the VINs in this list will not necessarily correlate exactly with either a specific calendar day or the build week on the cowl tag. The list data for some months deviate significantly from actual build dates, while other months correlate well.

That needs to be bolded on the site too.....

Thanks for the info.  Does it matter that the engine date is after the car build date?
Normally it does. But not in this case. The build date is inaccurate here.

Was it possible to delete the D96 pinstripes on a '69 Style Trim car?
Possible, yes.
Likely? Definitely not. Someone might think to delete the "big" stripes, but most people didn't even know if the car would have the pinstripes (kinda like this discussion. Smiley), much less delete them. The dealer could just remove them like they did for the pace car decal installation.
2795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Paint for Hockey Stick Stripe and Rear of S.S. on: July 19, 2007, 09:14:37 PM

The orig paint tail panels I have seen I would call  closer to gloss and not from polishing over the years. Definately not semi gloss.

But you definitely would not call the tailpanel full gloss. It's not the same gloss level as exterior gloss black. The easy test is you can't see a mirror like reflection in the tailpanel.
So it's agreed that it's somewhere in the mid-gloss range.
The easy place to check on an original paint car is in the trunk jamb under the weatherstripping......
2796  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear diff. on: July 19, 2007, 09:06:20 PM
Real close, but doable. Smiley

I take it that it's an L78 car?

From Charley:
"One is my Rally Green L89 with painted plug and the other is the 67 Pace car. Both are painted."

2798  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear diff. on: July 19, 2007, 02:02:00 PM
Datewise, that looks good/better.
What's the axle application code? What's the VIN?
2799  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear diff. on: July 18, 2007, 10:55:35 PM
Depends on what year and plant.
If you're buying a rear for a car, you'd have to look for a while to find much closer than that.
If it's supposed to be original, I'd have to have more data......

There some limit that's being hit on the upload folder size. Hopefully Rich or Doug can address it.
Here's the pic.

Good find! The page will be updated soon. Smiley
2802  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: is this car in the DB 68Z VIN# 8N477646 on: July 03, 2007, 11:42:28 PM
Turns out that this car is out there.
Someone said that it sold at Carlisle about 15 years ago. Who knows where it is now.....
2803  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: trunk spatter painted before or after balast installation on: July 03, 2007, 12:55:54 AM
The shakers were installed after the trunk was painted. They were hung in the trunk, painted with the trunk, and then installed.
The bolts will not have splatter paint on them. Smiley

Thanks Pat!
2805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help with 1969 convertible Cowl Tag on: June 30, 2007, 12:00:58 AM
I'm convinced the changeover was Jan 1. I have not seen any data that conflicts with that date.

And they were not just using up the 68 engines. They built the engines to a schedule and did not stockpile them.
