676  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Original Wide Tread Tire & DF wheel, weights, and valve stem on: July 20, 2012, 07:10:28 PM
Recently I had the good fortune to come across an original 68 Wide Tread Tire and DF wheel that
I feel is unmolested and totally original. Wanted to share and also learn from the valve stem as its
different from what I thought I knew about.  All I ever read about were Dill valve stems!
I believe the tire is dated Jan68? It came from the original owner of the 68Z/28. Micro weight is like new!
Plan on using this as our spare but leaving it the way it is. What do you think?








Oh, and I checked the valve stem length of several DF wheels along with other Corvette rally wheels (68)
and they all stick out approximately 1.300". Opps, wrong length!

When I first started this thread I thought maybe there was a different muncie speedo cable clip used in the tunnel area as my friends 69Z had the one pictured at the beginning of this thread but as pointed out maybe it was just all twisted about. Our 68Z was taken off the road (taken apart) in 1979 prior to our purchase 30 years ago so much of the hardware/clips/etc. was taken off by the previous owner. A few things he bagged but most hardware was put in multiple cigar boxes. Previously I had only found one muncie speedo clip and was asking for another but today I found another clip just like the one that was on the 69Z in the tunnel area holding the speedo cable. Now I'm really thinking there was more than one type used.......
Has anyone else seen these clips? This clip was full of grease/debris that one would assume from the underside of the car.


After a little cleaning-

Yeah I know it Chick, but as I understand it they will only judge the things that I have changed in the second year.  Firewall mat will be the same, just placed over the carpet.
Got it Mac! I had heard that but was not sure. Reason for stating that was I just found out there were several key changes this year from past years and it was a surprise.

Love that car of yours Mac..... Smiley One thing to keep in mind is judging evolves and what was acceptable might not be next year or the following.

Believe all the 3881339 clips in kits have a type of reddish clay color clip but most restorations observed have that clip
painted black. What was the correct color? 
681  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Firewall Pad-Molded or Not on: July 19, 2012, 06:20:05 PM
Thanks Hans, It is a hassle.  I am in the middle of removing the heater box.  I have decided to use the cheaper but more flexible version in the hope that I can snake it around the front of the console with removing it.
Mac, when you stated using the cheaper version are you referring to the cheap non-molded pad? If so, you are going to be disappointed as it looks like crap and will regret using it long term. Not sure but would think they would hit you on judging on that one as well.

Check ebay as well. Nice looking ride Eddie!
Love the color combo.....

Know I'd be interested in correct coil and rear spring labels for our multi-leaf 68Z.
Go get em Don Smiley

 a more serious note, I would really really like to buy one fo the original clips if someone can part with one.

Yea, and I need one also!

Well for sure so far it has been a mixed bag from 1 to three. I have only looked at 5 cars recently of which one had one clip and the others all had two. The clip hole (assume where the dimple was) in the tunnel seems to lie around 2.5" back from where the lip of the firewall goes underneath and overlaps the floor.
After more review I agree with Steve that what I first thought might be a different clip in the tunnel was just the same clip totally bent around (changed config.). Wish I had known of this while at Frederick and Carlisle. Smiley

Dave, did you try searches over on Team Camaro. There is far more activity over there concerning mods for touring cars and resto mods.
687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Looking for another decal project to consider on: July 12, 2012, 06:29:57 PM
ratpack, that is what I have read, i.e. repro's not correct. Thank You! Maybe Don can help us out.......eh!
This one is advertised as correct but is it other than the material being incorrect as you mentioned (color/font acceptable) or?
http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/17125/Camaro-Coil-spring-decals-EE-3932771-68/
And what about this repro for the rear springs? Supposed to be correct other than material used or?
http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/17134/Camaro-Leaf-spring-decals-OA-3930080-68/
These are examples of what I have but have not used to this point.
688  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Speedo cable Clips on: July 11, 2012, 11:20:28 PM
Checked a friends NOR 68 07D survivor and it had two, one at cowl and one in tunnel.
689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: tag on coil spring. on: July 10, 2012, 06:49:02 PM
While cleaning my recent purchase, I found the tag still around the coil spring.
It was really  nice. I was wondering, should I take it off and put it in a scrapebook?
How does it compare to repro stickers? Can you post a pic?
thanks
690  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Speedo cable Clips on: July 10, 2012, 06:43:41 PM
Could be correct Steve but the reason for me asking question similar to how many clips does one's car have. AIM calls out three but is that the norm? How many clips do you have?

So Mark your 68 only has (one) the cowl clip?

Thanks montgomg! Intersting for sure.....
