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.
707  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Brake & Gas Liine Clip 3881339 on: July 20, 2012, 08:13:55 AM
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?

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.

 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.
714  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.
715  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.
716  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
717  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.....
718  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Looking for another decal project to consider on: July 10, 2012, 05:24:12 PM
Don, I have not checked but maybe some wise members here will know about the coil are rear spring tags being correct or not. Thought I have read that the repros are not correct but not 100% sure or do I have anything to compare to. Know Don you re-did those for Chevelles if I remember correctly and those are used by a lot of people and would think they would be easy compared to other decals.
Everyone, how are the repro coil spring and leaf spring decals to originals?
Thanks Don! Received the decals ordered yesterday......

To me, they look like they are the same clip except the lower one pictured looks like someone has folded it over backwards and made a real meal out of it..

http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/17753/Camaro-Speedometer-cable-retainer-67-68-69/
Steve, the repro clips are not correct so original Muncie 4-speed clips can be somewhat of a challenge to find. The clip in question we took out and it was folded differently and sure seemed like a different type clip with the same type fastener (that goes in hole). We have no reason to believe this clip was removed, reworked and put back in. The fold for holding the cable is opposite.
720  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ebay item 160839900523 on: July 10, 2012, 05:54:08 AM
I see that now Thank you, I was wondering why sheet metal on roof was not rusted to death, I was thinking other than floors and rear quarters the body wasn't to bad because the roof under the vinyl and around windows was still there,  The car is pretty inexpensive even with including shipping sould be around $2200. to  $2300. any thoughts or is it more rusty than I thiink.

What parts are you interested to take off this car to use?
