2926  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: NOR '68 TRim question ..." 7129" ? on: October 09, 2006, 01:15:21 AM
Can I get a picture of the tag (and the pad if possible)?

Yes, I have seen the engine VIN off by a digit on rare occasions.

Thanks!

There was no HD cooling or fan option on a L78.
It should be a 5 blade fan and a 3 core rad.

Go with the closer one. Remember that was the build date of the body, car was completed several days later.

2932  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring clean original trunk, touch up or strip it??? on: September 29, 2006, 12:19:24 AM
I wouldn't do the trunk. From what I've seen, that car is too clean. Everyone has a restored car. You can have real nice looking, mostly original car. Just shoot the outside and clean up what needs cleaned.

And you probably can't get splatter paint to ever look that nice. The repro stuff doesn't look the same...
2933  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Best way to preserve the build sheet? on: September 29, 2006, 12:06:09 AM
Laminating it doesn't meet archival standards. I'd second the slip cover suggestion. Or ask a musuem how they'd store it.....

I'd be interested in a scan or picture of your broadcast sheet. Don't see many for 68's....

Thanks!

Sounds like one fuel line.
What's the VIN and axle code? http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#RearAxleNumbers
2935  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 24, 2006, 10:21:18 PM
John, my mistake, I thought we had discussed your cowl plenum being blacked out.

Dave69x33,
RamAirDave's pics are of a black striped car, so the plenum is painted black as expected.

I'd say John's article is accurate, the assembly process as described is how they made the cars. Original cars confirm this.

Pacers would not have had much an impact on processing, since they were spread out over 2-3 months.

Yes, that pacer is very original. It was here in MI in the original family. Looks like it's been sold or someone (Jim?) moved.

2936  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Seat belt question for KurtS on: September 22, 2006, 01:28:11 AM
Nope. The tags didn't indicate color.
2937  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 20, 2006, 11:23:45 PM
To summarize:
The cowl plenum should be body color (or stripe color on Z's and pacers). I've seen only 1 or 2 cars that were blacked out, John's being the only one that comes to mind.
2938  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Z28 Database on: September 13, 2006, 12:48:39 AM
I wouldn't sweat a cast date.  That's getting pretty close to what I'd expect.
2939  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 7N179563 on: September 11, 2006, 02:20:34 PM
Thanks! Added. We'll let you know if we run across the car.
2 things - what's the block casting # and can I get a pic of the pad?  No hurry, thanks again!
2940  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 3352 block on: September 11, 2006, 12:50:35 AM
We have not documented a 3352 block in an L48. Not to say it didn't happen.

Since it's not original (and decked), I wouldn't sweat it as long as the internals are correct.
