Gary, we have a local locksmith who's Father was a locksmith and he is also a car nut like us. He knows the codes and even has the tool which is used to cut/notch each key per the code or what he finds on the lock. Kind of reminds you of an old label maker but he keys in a number, punches the key, keys in another number, punches the key until he has the code punched in. He also stamps the code if one wishes on the key blanks which I had done for our 68Z restoration. If you cannot find anyone locally send it to me and I will ask him to fix you up.....

Google will get you there as well!
Finding them is fairly easy once you know what to look for as they used them over many model years and they were still available not that long ago.

I'd be interested in this as well but it might be easier to have 8 1/2 X 11 high quality copies made and people could have them blown to the size desired which also makes it much easier and simpler. Just a thought but would love to put these up in the garage.......
Count me in please......

Not sure but check the Corvette houses as well like Paragon, Eckler's, etc..

Hi Jeff did you go with zinc? how did it turn out? are you happy with the color or the coating?
thanks
sebastien
Sebastien, this was a 4 plus year old thread and have not seen Jeff68 on lately but here goes. Clear Zinc is the way to go but be warned clear zinc can be everything from very dull to very shiny depending on the platter and what you show them you want or their experience concerning restoring our type of car parts. Plus, like an paint job, the end product is only as good as the prep prior to plating. If a part is pitted or rough prior to plating its going to look awful after plating as well. I'd suggest showing the platter what you want unless you went with the experience of Brakeboosters.com, or similar. Some parts like the coil bracket and body plugs seemed to be hot galvanized so not everything utilized clear zinc.

The 68's pictured were all used in the same angle posed in the 68 Dealer Album.
Hey, I got one of them so I need to check that out! Great examples and thank you VintageLiterature and Phillip.....

Chick, my 69Z is Garnet Red with 719 red deluxe with red deluxe seat belts.  The problem that I see, is that my original photos of the interior are not any better than the pic that William posted on the convertible.  I would be glad to help any way that I could.  My red interior is out of the car for dis assembly, and is scattered all over the shop.  PM me if you want to!

Bryan
Bryan, PM coming your way and thank you. Yea, great news.......
Gary, no problem!
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What clip is being used for carb linkage. on: March 10, 2015, 08:28:14 PM

Retaining Pins
Used on grooved shafts, these are also known as hairpin clips. 18-8 stainless steel are corrosion resistant and may be mildly magnetic. Zinc-plated steel pins are rust-resistant

Ref. McMaster-Carr



For whatever reason the AIM shows 67 as being the cotter pin and 68-9 being an E-clip.  I always thought they were all e-clips..  But I havent looked at very many 7 Zs.


1969 #4 Ring





1967 #4 C. Pin


Darrell, our 01B 68Z is cotter pin. It might have been changed sometime during the model year but no clip on ours.

He also says he has a new Vintage Air system for installation...  Does anyone here know what the compromises are to install a Vintage Air unit on a '69 Camaro?  

(Because it's mostly under the dash, there are definite compromises installing vintage Air on a trifive chevy; loss of original radio space and glove compartment space).  I suspect similar situations with a Camaro...  
If I may ask politely, what does this have to do with the original post other than a hi-jack of the thread. Smiley
Still looking for other pics of the red interior if available.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Medium Red Custom Interior 719 on: March 10, 2015, 10:15:50 AM
Hey,
  Is that a BLACK houndstooth interior? If so and it is in good condition, I would be interesrted in purchasing from him and maybe that will help with his conversion. I have a '67 SS with no interior and I will probably never fully restore to original. I am in Central Ohio so a road trip to Pa. is not out of the question.
Sorry, its white houdstooth and in excellent condition. His correct red interior is actually ready to install and was restored by Al Knoch and looks great!

Again, good info from William as the pace cars came to mind immediately but another one cleared up.

Lloyd, yesterday looked at a 06A NOR Camaro that had original paint and was a pretty neat car (un-restored) and it had peaked blades.
Bill's car is 03D!
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Medium Red Custom Interior 719 on: March 10, 2015, 07:16:38 AM
The link William supplied will greatly assist but does anyone have any other red interior pictures they could share either here or via email?
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Medium Red Custom Interior 719 on: March 09, 2015, 08:30:09 PM
Thanks William! And great info on the seat belts.....

I have a good friend who owns a 69 Z/28 that is Garnet Red with the red custom (719) gut but the car was changed to hounds-tooth back in the 80's. I would appreciate if a member could contact me as my friend would love to have some pictures of a similar interior Camaro as he is going to put it back to original. Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help.

The exact same blades (not arms) were also used on '66-'67 Corvettes.
Agree John but I think those used in 66/67 did not have "made in USA" stamped in.

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.

Thanks John as our 67 has or had those wing type Anco on which I know are wrong. Smiley Good info to know concerning the stamping timeframes!
Bill, what is the build time-frame for your 69?
