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.

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.

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?
36  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.

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.

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!
