31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Engine emblems assembly line different LH and RH? on: March 21, 2014, 08:15:37 PM
The 69 AIM lists RH LH part numbers for 307 emblems.
The 396 car I am painting now has an original RH 396 Emblem which has the casting number of 3938672 RH and the Triangle TC logo inside the back, it also has a different profile than the other emblem on the car which has 3962951 casting number.
The NOS GM ones I see for sale have both 3938671 and 3962951 cast into the back.

Also I recently found a used RH version of the 350 emblem on ebay with the casting number being one off of the number cast in the back of the NOS emblems marketed as being for LH or RH.
 


So my question is were production line emblems different left to right?

The tail shaft housing should have the same finish as the Z28 valve covers or the steering box cover (die cast aluminum) the main case should look like a Z28 aluminum intake (it was pour cast in a green sand mold then into a vibratory tumbler with steel shot to remove the casting sand).



These are cast aluminum seat stands which are fresh out of the vibratory tumbler loaded with steel shot.

Black over Parchment would be a great one... give her an L78 and I would have to own it!

I hate to do this but I think this is going to snow ball... Shocked

Has anyone noticed there are two types of SS Stacks???  One my cars I have a set where the square stacks are chrome all the way to the base and another car where the chrome only goes about 1/4" down... I'll have to post photos later... but I think both have the correct part numbers...

Can you post a photo illustrating the differences?
I have looked at the stacks I have and can not understand whether the difference you speak of it a difference in the black paint application or a different design.

The ribs are either stamped foil or the whole thing was vacuum metalized then painted.
I do not believe it is possible vacuum metalize a specific area of a part.

Silver over red... that would be a nice one to own.

The ends of the "good" repros's I have used and seen are not rolled like the originals, they are VERY SHARP.
The originals appear to have been cut using a tubing cutter, or some type of cutter which rolled/pinched the ends over, the repros appear to be saw cut and are blunt ended and sharp.
I have used a fine metal file to bevel the ends however they are still not Identical to the GM parts.
 

If this has changed I would like to know who carries the rolled end type.

On Pontiac Build sheets they add the numbers as well, if BOX (X) is used for options 1, 2, 4 a 3 would indicate 1 & 2, a 5 would indicate 1 & 4.
 Notice there is no 3 as that would give 2 ways to add to 5 and no way to discern which was which.

Great project, it looks dusk blue now, maybe it was just ordered sans stripes... which would have netted the - - on the TT.

BTW...Another 69 color which could have been on a - - car and is much brighter than Garnet Red is MONZA RED the Corvette color, it is also the RED STRIPE color on 69 Camaro's.
Car was originally a SB the underhood lamp is on the drivers side which is where the SB dipstick was located.

The Vtop is an after market one, originals had body color showing along the rain gutters.
 Did special paint Vtop cars indicate a top color?

The early LOS Z28 I referenced not only has the narrow rear stripe design but they are also shorter as well, however they do not appear to be as short as the Orange car which was originally referenced.

RS Cowl Induction Muncie... too bad it is missing the numbers and trashed...

Thats all the way down to the bare spoiler...
James,

The white stripe in your first photo appears to have been repainted, if you look just below the camaro emblem, on the spoiler, the white paint for the stripe is chipped, and there appears to be 'white paint' below it.  If this was original, wouldn't the color underneath the white stripe be the blue paint??  Or maybe what I'm seeing in the photo isn't reflective of the car itself?

To me, it looked like when the paint chipped it took both the white and the blue under it leaving the fiberglass (whiteish color) exposed. But, that is just my opinion.

Exactly... it is the white finish of the spoiler....
