I think the tape covers the holes in the floor pan .That picture does not look correct. The reason they used the tape is for the water test???thanks John

Jerrys book is the best . It doesnt show alot about the head markings. You have to learn those yourself. Look at original cars and take notes. I have done alot of research on head markings.Alot! My wife says I am nuts about bolts. Most every repop from AMK is incorrect in some way. John

Very hard to find with the ears intach.Like he said the repops are junk and over priced. I did the same thing ,reshaped the repops. Then plated them the correct silver cad. Called up Ricks and told them about the ears and they laughed at me.I told the tech from Ricks I would give him a hundred dollars if he could bend the ears in a blind hole.He said they are very nice reopops and nobody ever complained before. Said I didnt know what I was doing.  John

It looks like march dated wheels would be for your car.They are also hard to find.All of the df wheels are dated.The early ones are dated on the inside thats why you take a picture before the tire goes on.  John p.s. like someone else said the May dated wheels are the most common ,seen alot of those
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Exhaust Hangers on: March 03, 2011, 10:29:05 PM
All of the ones that I have seen nos and used are bare steel. If its a restored car plate them silver zinc. Looks good and prevents rust.All of the hangers that Gardner exhaust sells are plated silver zinc. John

Black phosphate is the correct plating. I also bead blast the bolts before plating.Also spray some type of oil on them before installing them to prevent rust . Put alittle strip caulk on the washer to prevent peeling the paint when tighting. John

I had to step up big time also for a pair of the big upside down DF wheels.They are for my 12d 68 z.Very hard to find. Took some pics of the dates before I installed the tires. When it comes to wheels rust pits are usually in hard to reach areas and tough to repair . Buy the best condition ones you can find even if they are expensive.  John  p.s. glad to see luv2sixty69 post  that guy has alot of knowledge!
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 1968 z/28 pitman arm on: January 23, 2011, 12:14:51 AM
Just removed a pitman from a manual steering 68 z and the part number is 3935075a is this original?It looks like it was never removed before and is from a real low milage original car. thanks John

43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Brake booster vacuum hose, ribbed or not, what markings? on: January 05, 2011, 08:20:04 AM
Lots of different suppliers for hose gm used.Call Dr.rebuild in CT. They sell corvette parts but some of the hoses are the same. John
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Spark plug wire Heat shields on: January 04, 2011, 08:57:12 AM
Never had a car judged.I learned it on my own. My original never taken apart 68z has them orange. If you think about it the mounts go on before the manifold on the left side. Nobody else ever picked up on this detail item. All of the engine I do are done correctly. It doesnt matter to me what the judges say this is the correct way. John Allouez Restoration p.s. go to the 67z web site and look at the pics of Jon Mellos mountain green 67 .It shows the original early take off shields in one of the pics.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original long bolts for 1969 L/78 motor mounts on: January 04, 2011, 02:06:39 AM
The 1969 z/28 left side mount is different then the right. My very original 11d 69z never had the engine removed. So I know the mount is original to the car.Only one other person that I know has one of these mounts. He also restored a very original car and the mount is the same as mine. John Allouez Restorations
