976  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Rebody Z on Ebay on: June 27, 2008, 01:30:37 AM
Here is what appears to be a 69 Z cowl top spliced onto another bodyshell...
124379N613031
Ad says the cowl tag reads as follows.
Body # 278190
Trim 715                     
50-50 paint
02D
X-33
The lack of Muncie Firewall piercing and the seam sealer at the cowl well was the first clue...

Clean them in a vibratory bin or glass bead then re phoshate them with the good stuff from Palmetto Enterprises...

It may take some dialing in the carb (acc pump, PV's, jets, etc), timing, and experimentation but take into consideration that Jerry McNeish's Old Reliable has been through a NHRA tear down. It's stock and runs 10's. So I am sure you could get 427 into the 11's.

I have seen the liners that went the entire length of the leaf and I have seen them that were only on the ends where the leaf tips were... I would venture to guess that both types were used...

Not really, 68's are the hardest to ID.

TRW is a manufacturer of auto parts for the OEM and aftermarket...
There is no liting of head markings for a particular location... there were just certain fasteners spec'd the manufacturers would have their own identifing marks. There were bins of certain size bolts from multiple manufacturers and it was luck of the draw.

Chris,
On the black 69 RS/Z I used enamel reducer to remove the black bug bomb someone used to "touch up" under the hood. The enamel reducer will not hurt the original paint on the firewall or inner fenders but it may not be so kind to the B on the firewall, you may want ot mask off where the B is, clean the rest thoroughly and then go back to work on the B much slower.

Who is the best company to buy original parts from?

What are you planning on doing to the car? If the car is as original as it appears, you will want to find good original low wear parts or NOS parts. Most reproduction parts are not 100% authentic when compared to originals and they will detract from the appeal of the car.

I posted the photos of the ford... I was illustrating what the product I recommended will do without harming what is there.

I love the term Restoration Graffiti... that is awesome... register and trade mark it John.

Sir I am going to have to ask you to put down the grease pencil and step away from the Camaro.

Just say no to Restoration Graffiti.
Shirts... bumper stickers...

WOW what a time capsule.
Please proceed slowly anything you do to alter or refinish anything could diminish the historical integrity as well as diminish the $$ value of the car as a survivor.
One of the best products to clean with out causing more damage is to use www.safestrustremover.com

The last ones I saw were 2500 for the roof rails and 2500 for the doors... so Jim is selling them pretty fairly priced.
988  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NOS weather stripping 1969 camaro on: May 21, 2008, 01:36:17 PM
That's about right...
If he didn't know the pricing on those item I am sure he just had a massive heart attack! LOL

If the original carpet is just faded you will want to dye it back black with some RIT dye... I have done it many times. Just take the carpet out of the car and clean it. Let it dry for a few days and then take it out in the sun and following the instructions mix your dye  and work it into the carpet with a long bristled brush.  Let it dry throughly and then reinstall... NOTHING fits like the original, and even if they have some wear I think in the end you will be happy you kept the orginals.

The ones dated for a pace car will bring $200 but the other dates are not near as in demand...
around $100
