Kurt you are right. I've been with Jerry many times when he looks at cars and there is  a long laundry list of wrong parts . There was a car just the fall carlisle with his cert. with plenty of wrong items that they didn't address

Would that happen to be a little ol' 68 Z/28?

I have attached a photo of a wiring harness clip. I need one of these, it’s the one that goes around the wire bundle next to the Voltage Regulator. I have check around and have not been able to locate them.
Any leads would be appreciated.

John - you probably get tired of hearing this but your car never ceases to amaze. Every corner of that car is in excellent original condition! Thanks for sharing.

Only took five years and detailed inspection of about twenty '69 Z/28's to find it. :-)
and just a small amount of cash Smiley  Got a great Z John!

First off DO NOT go the soffseal route unless they have made some significant changes as their seals are stiffer (harder to compress). If one side only is raised up it would seem that side was not the same as the other before the seal was applied so there might be two issues, i.e. seal thickness and trunk lid fit up. As already mentioned the old faithful razor blade has been used more than once in this situation. I'd take the seal out and make sure the lid fits the same around the parameter and then put the seal back in and trim as needed.

I'm not aware of any difference in the coil bracket from std. air cleaner to cowl plenum. Just curious if your coil is bottomed out in the bracket? Assume your interference is bottom of cleaner base to coil wire/coil?
681  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Deck Lid repair and ID help on: September 01, 2011, 05:48:00 AM
They don't look quite like my 68, but they had the secondary emblem cut outs for spoilers already in their design.  My spoiler was an add-on.  The bottom set of holes that should have been drilled from the factory weren't. 

Just curious or want to clarify your meaning concerning "but they had the secondary emblem cut outs for spoilers". That was a 68 change to deck lid design I thought so 67's would not have. Are you saying his would have or referring to yours? What bottom set of holes were not drilled from the factory? Are you referring to the 4 lower emblem holes that were pierced in or?
Interesting to the # of changes made on these deck lids in three years.

I'm assuming it was they could use different length of strips for a multitude of harnesses and then staple the push in where needed. Two part numbers (bill of material) that could be made for again any harness, hence the flexibility for mfg.
The only reason logical for the length of that strip was to give the harness strength but again it's just an assumption. Yea, I know what it means when we assume Grin
683  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 pcv valve and factory 90degree angle hose on: August 30, 2011, 09:12:18 PM
From what I found out from other members and research it was originally a spun PCV and has a different look. And they are hard to find and when found are not cheap normally. Kinda like a turned body vs. the later crimped version. I never saw a purple PCV on any of the original muscle cars from the 60's. Not sure how that got started but believe (but I could be wrong) it to be a myth like the ford caution stickers on Camaro fan shrouds.
Maybe someone can post a picture to better show the differences.
684  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Light Harness Clips on: August 30, 2011, 08:51:13 PM
Here you go Marty! I thought before starting to unwrap the tape off the orig. harness the plastic black plug maybe had an inch or so on both sides of the plug that the tape held in place by but was surprised to see it's actually stapled to a length of plastic strip that seems to go the length of the taping. The attached pics show some of the length of the strap and how the plug is attached on the back side. On another note I have pictures of the sockets changed out to assist with making the new harness more accurate like the headlight sockets and the rear taillight sockets. I'm also trying to find the plastic sleeve that surrounded the harness in the trunk area. Mine has dried out and cracked in too many places. More pics in the link you reviewed. And thanks for the kind words on the Al Knoch interior restoration. I like it Grin

Chick - I checked out your link. I think you mention one of the original clips is black & one is white. Or two are white and one is black. Can you please clarify? And...which one goes where (fender/alternator bracket).


BTW, your seats look terrific!

Marty, on our orig. 68 front engine harness all the push in plugs were black vs. the similar plug (shape the same) on our American Autowire harness that were white. The only white push in on our original was the one at the alternator shown in the attached picture. I took the orig. one off our harness and laid it on top of the new harness so we could see the differences. Will post later a more detailed picture of the push in type black plugs as they are stapled to a plastic strip the length of the taped harness. Did not know until I started unwrap the original.

Here is a link to a restoration thread I have on team camaro that shows the orig. front harness clips vs. the repro along with the alt. boot.
687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Seat foam and springs. on: August 30, 2011, 07:12:24 AM
I had Al Knoch do our orig. door panels, buckets, and rear seat for our 68 Z/28 restoration. IMO they are getting it correct dead on. Glass beaded the springs, restored the seat backs, etc..... My friend who has a restoration shop was so impressed with the quality he gave them his entire interior for his 69Z. Posted pics of our 68's interior where I have a thread on it's restoration.
Also doing, again just my honest opinion, some great recovering on 68 dash pads. Just gave them a dash pad out of a 69 Firebird that is similar to the 68 Camaro. Great quality and great value for your buck. 
688  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Keys for my 67 on: August 29, 2011, 08:30:51 PM
First off IMHO you should absolutely do nothing to them as they are the born with keys and are so cool the way they are. As mentioned if you want to do something get other NOS keys and just keep your old keys period. Our originals for a 68 did not have the knock outs so I purchased two that had knock outs and two NOS that did not. Our old faithful locksmith punch cut the 4 keys and even stamped the 2 new keys (w/knock outs) with the correct code. So I have 4 new keys but keeping the orig. in a safe place. By the way, you can easily purchase the key envelopes at Paragon or other Corvette websites.
689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: we need to stop the fraud on ebay - on: August 29, 2011, 06:17:15 AM
Only one do you take on a company as huge as EBay? One would have to assume their army of attorneys are well prepaired to deal with anyone trying to remove a large chunk of their income. One would also have to assume the political system is at their disposal.

I don't know of any other site that has helped more to minimize these types of sales.   

Applaud the effort but this is not a ebay to say issue. We neither can or should expect Ebay or any company to have an army of employees checking every car/part/literature ad to verify it's the real deal. What about non-automotive parts as rip offs and fakes reside in all types of things as fraud has no boundaries. No different than someone placing an ad in the newspaper. Know personally I have sent messages to Ebay concerning a few very apparent shams and each one was removed.
The site that consistently warns and documents vin #'s etc. is Team Camaro. So between Team Camaro and here a lot of fraud or just say suspect Camaro's have been listed. That's the great news and shows a lot of people like you Joe CARE!

I'm not sure you have anything to do as everything you mentioned I believe are bolt suppliers that GM used so they would/could be correct. I've got mixes quite a few places. Did not go out and check our M21's to compare but nothing you mentioned seemed out of line.
