Being a first week december Z28 did it have Chambered pipes or crossflow muffler?
There is a recall letter that uses the date Dec 4th as the end day for Chambered.
Just wondering how yours was equipped being in the transition week.

You can buy it at the GM dealership it is called pumpable sealer.
A good alternative that looks extremely close is Evercoat brand undercoating, comes in 1 Quart cans and you can use a chip brush to brush it in, you may need to pour it into a open can and allow some of the solvents to evaporate so it will be thicker.

James would you recommend the OER Latex over current SoffSeal products then?

Yes without hesitation the extra cost is nominal for the original look and compression.
Here are a set of OER Latex Covered Foam Roof Rails,
Take in mind the doors shut like a survivor with no extra effort required and close with OEM sound, thud.








 OER is as close to NOS as you are going to get.

Prices are all over the board right now, if the car has real verified paper, is in good colors, and has the most correct restoration you can have done, (Chicago Muscle Car Show, Legends Judging type resto) it could go 125-175

I knew I had run across a photo of the Camaro early in clays in one of my books...
AH HA in a Corvette book I have had for 25 years titled "Corvette America's Sports Car" Published in 1989.

This is a crop of a photo of the 68 Vette in Clay credited to GM Archives and Zora June 1965 , I have never seen this shot of the Camaro singled out if published elsewhere.

I just realized that both of my cables appear to be original, they have just had the ends cut? Are these numbers correct for my May '68 Camaro? ... D
 
   Positive = 6290590BV
   Negative = 2986167EH

Quite common to cut the spring ring off and use a clamp type with cross bolt. It is something to check on some of the less molested cars just to see if they are the originals. I sometimes forget to check them unless the spring ring is still there.

I installed the Soft Seal door weatherstrips and they are now hollow, you can't tell (visually) from the appearance however they "crush" much more than the old Soft Seal.
The biggest difference other than the fact they are not latex covered foam are in the ends, the original has a stamped metal plate molded in where it attaches to the door the Soft Seal does not, they have flat washers installed in those places.
I am not 100% sure however I believe the OER Latex Foam WS I installed in the last car did have metal plates.

The YM would correspond with the broadcast code printed on the build sheet.
I'm not certain about the P, best guess .... P -  Positive
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Build sheet info on: January 29, 2015, 09:25:32 AM
1/2 to 3/4 of them have been known for years and most of these are in Jerry's book... however to my knowledge a complete one has never been available. 

If someone had a late 1969 Firebird build sheet from Norwood and a PHS to go with it then more may be able to be decoded as long as they were similar in form.

IMHO for a daily driven street car the 3.55 M20 would have been the optimum set up for a 69 Z28. 
The effective first gear ratio is better than a 3.73 M21 but not quite as good as M21 4.10 but the 3.55 gained a lot better top end and lowered the cruising RPM.

If there was going to be very little driving at highway speeds i'd  lean toward 3.73 M20. If it was purely for weekend fun 4.10 M20.
Until I am racing on a road course I am not considering a M21/22. 
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: info,,1969 z28,,for sale? on: January 28, 2015, 09:11:49 PM
A little strong on the money... unless the 5 AD's, Carb, smog, radiator, alt and distributor are there and correct. Those parts will set you back 5k.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: casting date to assembly gap on: January 28, 2015, 08:55:00 PM
There is nothing out of place with that spread.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Build sheet info on: January 28, 2015, 08:52:49 PM
There is not...
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: The straight skinny on post '65, pre-mid '70, Hurst shifter plating on: January 23, 2015, 04:40:34 PM
It may be easier to figure GM's specs by looking at shifters other than hurst. Since Hurst supplied both OEM and the after market looking at the GM built shifters or The Muncie shifter supplied in 67-68 may offer some glimpses as to specs. I would venture to guess that if Hurst's specs exceeded GM's specs, (corrosion, saltspray etc) it would be no problem to substitute better finishes. ex.  If GM required zinc for (X)hours corrosion protection and Cad offered (X+)hours if Cad were supplied it may have been a non issue.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: The straight skinny on post '65, pre-mid '70, Hurst shifter plating on: January 22, 2015, 06:46:16 PM
ok, correct me if I am wrong I think the actual question is are people being led to believe that zinc is correct because environmentally true cadmium plating is near impossible to have done, or is their documentation from the oem to back up the claims?

Which is a good question.
