Danny, in our build thread I purchased a NOS yellow Delco eye and then we matched that paint to paint the caps that came with our Y55 in the early 80's as they were red.
Could send you a close up picture to at least come close on the color if you decide to paint some caps.

Some look dang good but what's underneath can be, well simply said, bad news. I've seen some bondo warriors! As previously noted, any good shop will document for both the customer and themselves the process. I must have a couple thousand pictures of my restoration. Smiley

You don't need to be there when the truck arrives. They will unload it and park it over to the side. I will be there when the trucks arrive assisting in unloading and can babysit your car off the truck if you want. If anybody has never been but has been thinking about going it really is like no other show. You have never seen so many nice cars in one place indoors. I think we have lined up for this years show 20 Hemi Cuda and Challenger converts. There has never been that many in one place before..
I just hope the trucks stay out until the bulk of the cars are removed. With 7 tractor trailers inside the building it causes a huge jam log getting out. Smiley, especially when the weather is not cooperating.

As I told you already Danny, great score!

^^  Thank you.
Yes, he led a long life, and enjoyed 27 years of retirement!!  I consider myself very lucky.
Glad to see you back Jeff and I can only wish to have 27 years of retirement. Your Father was blessed and as Gary commented to have that picture, well that is just memorable!
Welcome back!

Mine were not original, so I can't help. But I thought I read that if it is on one side only it's Corvette.. Danny
JohnZ's post #8 on this thread- "On Corvettes, the "Made In USA" stamp (on one end of the peaked holder) started in January, 1967, and was phased in on BOTH ends by the end of the model year."
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: T-3 Headlights on: March 22, 2015, 07:47:44 PM
This is one of mine from our 68Z. 6012 bulb
D2726- D-December  2-Line number  7-1967 26-26th day I believe in my build thread I originally thought they were O for October but it's a D.

8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: March 22, 2015, 07:22:24 PM
peaked , " Trico Made in the USA " one side.   04D 68
That's interesting as many of us thought 68's have made in usa both ends.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: T-3 Headlights on: March 22, 2015, 07:16:20 PM
Ok, NOW we are getting somewhere. Thanx Kurt..
So the lights I am looking at have    6013
                                                 12  5  19
 So is that Dec 19th 1965?
Jan 19th 1965! They would not have the vertical lines in the T3 emblem.  The 2 (not 12) represents the line. First time I saw this chart was years ago when JohnZ shared it. Great chart for sure..... Danny, a lot of T3's have been cleaned and the ink stamping is either gone or not very legible. Get what you need but do not worry about a date code no one can see. Just my thought!

Beginning to stock some of the few " misc" items that have been missing for years.  Shroud clip, a few fasteners ,etc..

Very pleased with what arrived in the mail today. Matches my originals, labeled and packaged well for organization.
If your referring to the hardware kits the supplier is AMK and they do all that great labeling. Did the picture sent take care of the brake line need?

Danny if complete some searches there is a lot of information to be found. You hit the biggest thing being the vertical lines in the T3 emblem. The number you mentioned is the mold # I believe JohnZ has mentioned before and they are 6012's. Grab what you can as they are becoming harder and harder to obtain and repro production stopped early last year. If purchasing make sure they are tested prior. Luckily both the orig dated headlights from our 68Z work but many have told me if your headlights are kept on for periods of time other than a check you run the chance of failure. True or not, don't know but first time son drove his 69 L34 Nova at night the one low beam went.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 21, 2015, 05:43:15 AM
Sold!! Just finished loading everything up! There was WAY more than advertised.
You did well! Not too many cases to have that amount of parts at one taking. What were the most interesting parts in the stash?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where have all the RS SS's gone ? on: March 17, 2015, 06:24:41 AM
Great story and more of that around then one can imagine. In fact, if someone poked around in most of our garages many people would say we are hoarders, just the extent varies. Smiley
Boy would any of us love to go thru that stuff to find some jewels in parts, etc. Wow!

As promised I sent you a couple pictures via email I took Monday afternoon while working on car.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 camaro keys on: March 14, 2015, 09:23:52 PM
I bought the "repro" GM key blanks (correct markings, etc) for a 69 Camaro E and H code.  With the original door lock cylinders the "repro" H key has the groves that are not cut far enough in the blank to work.  The key will not insert all the way in the lock.  If you look at a real blank vs the "repro" blank you can see the difference. 

Another "repro" junk part.

Your probably correct but I thought the later service replacement keys did not have the deep enough groove in the blank and never thought it was repro. I still have a few keys I purchased in the 80's I keep for our cars and they all have the deeper groove. Whether repro or later service replacement its a great point as many have been burned due to that issue.
