The knobs on the current GM handles are not correct for the 68's. They do not have the correct "ribs" on the outer edges (area you grip).................RatPack....................

You were the one hyping the Blue print on the YF tag!!!  I also realize Jerry's book says the same. 

Don, I wasn't hyping the blue print, just repeated what Jerry said in his book. Then I found this spring tag last night........... Tongue Grin ................

Those plastic parts are made of unobtainium!!! I may have the rear piece that covers the back of the armrest but I will have to look. I have had around a dozen of these seats and the plastic parts are usually broken or missing....................RatPack....................

Well I am going to throw a monkey into the wrench regarding the lettering color of the YF spring tag. Got the original off of the 02D SS that the rear tag came from and the lettering looks black to me, not dark blue. It also has that small font for the part number like the one for the BK code rear spring................RatPack.....................

Don, the BK spring is a rear spring and was used in some of the SS396 and COPO cars. The pieces I have shown above came from an 02D NOR SS396. Is there any way to make the print look more like it was "stamped" like the originals?..............RatPack...............

Don, there was only one front spring tag with dk.blue lettering per Jerry's book. The colors for the 69 front coil springs are as follows:

3955720 - YF - light blue background with dk.blue lettering
3955721 - YH - light blue background with black lettering
3925814 - EY - light blue background with black lettering
3955724 - HQ - light blue background with black lettering
3955728 - HW - light blue background with black lettering

The following 1969 rear mulitleaf spring tags are all silver with black lettering:
3955740- BK *note the attached picture and how the font of the part number is different than other springs.
3934894 - BM
3955729 - BP

I have some other coil and leaf spring tags around here somewhere, but it may take a few days to find them............RatPack........................

Don, I have not checked but maybe some wise members here will know about the coil are rear spring tags being correct or not. Thought I have read that the repros are not correct but not 100% sure or do I have anything to compare to.

I haven't seen anyone doing 100% correct leaf or coil spring decals for the first gen Camaro. The ones out there today are printed on a vinyl/plastic type of material and are way to glossy. Most are not even the correct colors, especially the 69 mulit leaf "BM" code stickers. The originals are a cloth/paper type material in silver and have black lettering; the repros are yellow with black lettering and there is one that doesn't even have the correct font! Don I would love to see someone make these decals correctly. I may be able to supply with originals to make repros for certain applications......................RatPack............................

Spring tag from the unrestored 68 at the Camaro Nat's this year. I got this picture while it was on the lift..............RatPack.............
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Temperature Switch Wire Retainer Part Number on: July 10, 2012, 08:27:38 PM
The way the wire runs through the one in your pic is not correct.  Someone did some "repair".

Actually that is the way that wire is supposed to attach to the retaining clip. The tape was just used as an extra way of securing the wire to the clip. I think he has the correct clip, just needs to add the correct tape to each end.....................RatPack.......................

I just threw away a complete forward lamp harness from a 68 L-6 and there were the remains of a clip just like that on the sending unit wire. It had black tape wrapped around each end where the wire passes thru. Check with the guys at M&H Electric as they have all of the blueprints from GM regarding wiring harnesses as they may sell you just that clip w/o having to buy a complete harness. Their part number for the non-RS L6 forward lamp harness is 11825. Here is their website:  www.wiringharness.com ..............RatPack..............

If you have deluxe interior you should have the fiberboards with the fiberglass type of insulation. I may have some pictures of mine before restoration. Give me a few days as those will be normal printed photos and not digital..................RatPack...............

rat pack,
 Pictures were sent to your E-mail.

Victor...check to make sure those pictures went through as I don't have any....

Mine's LOS, but I don't think I have any pictures as all I did was change carpets out.  I'll look under the sills for anything.  Other than that it might be a while.

Probably won't find it under the sills, but pulling the rear seat bottom out would probably work...........also look up under the dash over behind the kick panel area........ Have yet to see a LOS car with this color in 67 or 68................RatPack................
