826  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What's my car worth on: December 24, 2011, 07:14:32 AM
Yep, that is our Marty. Initially ran in early Oct. or so and Marty even placed a comment about it on CRG. Knew it was his car as soon as I saw it. Interesting that one show had a ZL1 being purchased last year that I had seen at a shop earlier this year and then then three days later I talked to the Chasing Classic Cars host at the Hershey meet. He was looking at books/literature a friend had there for sale. Seems like a real good guy........

This is not the one that was for sale in TX. I've owned this Camaro since August 28, 1968, but it is Sequoia Green.

Great car Larry!

Hi Don,
Yes, I believe the 3909124 would be the correct part number, but no expert here. Not sure of the correct date that would have been used starting the 68 model year but that one might be as I know the conv. part #3909135 used into the 68 model year had a date of 6-24-66. Here are two pics of an original 3909135 that I have and yes it shows the screw driver. The primary difference is the 3909135 has a different jack orientation compared to the 3909124.

What are the date codes on the cover (cast in ciircular area)? That would or should assist you in determining which one to use.

John, believe this to be a NOR car but James supplied some great pics and believe there were some detailing inspection marks. Here is the link just in case if might help.

Awesome show, Zl1's, yenkos, copos, Hemi's, Ls6 Chevelles etc.... So much to look at.  My car did really well.  Scored the highest in the class at 99.1%.  Since then I fixed all the items the judges found, (only three). 

Would you post a link to some pictures?  I'd love to look around.
Daniel, here you go! http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8857.0
Several links in that crg thread.....

Great news as you have an outstanding car Keith, just outstanding! You gotta let me know what they found! Smiley
834  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Painting 12 bolt Differential detail Questions on: November 26, 2011, 09:40:39 PM
When the differentials were painted originally I've read and researched they were of course painted as a completed assembly with the emergency cables attached but no brake lines and that the yoke and emergency cables were protected from paint with a cardboard sleeve or some type of protection.
1. Was the wheel cylinder brake fluid bleeder installed after paint or before. Other words, should it be bare metal or painted? I assumed bare metal but found traces of black paint on one of ours.
2. On the emergency brake cables, how much black paint was normally on them? 
Thanks for any assistance as we need to get this rear finished Grin

Umm, not sure but good question! How was the Chicago show Keith?
836  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Z28 on eBay on: November 24, 2011, 09:14:17 PM
Not sure if correct but on team camaro it was stated the car was suspended from the 67 Z/28 registry and it had a repro cowl tag. No expert here but very little real info to go on and as long as its been on ebay you would think they would have gotten that engine running.
Here is the link from the past discussion:

837  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 original rear brake hose on: November 08, 2011, 06:06:55 PM
I'm sure you are correct concerning your rear hose as GM might have/probably had more than one supplier. Our what we believe to be our orig. rear hose had red stenciled information and dashes (Norwood 01B built). Car was taken off the road in 1979, has the early single crimp, and measues approximately .430" +/-.005 Would be interesting to know more for sure..... The other thing is did the hose have a date code as I have a code with a "7" but it does not make any sense to normal date coding.




838  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 original rear brake hose on: November 08, 2011, 05:50:56 AM
John, pictures of our orig. off our 68 z/28 can be found on the Team Camaro link below (page 21). This link shows pics of our orig. with the red lettering. There is another picture on page 24 of that rear brake line sandwiched between the two NOS brake lines that I had added the same red lettering. If you need any additional pics let me know as the hose is currently still off the car.

839  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Needing a stainless steel trim restoration and chrome shop in central Florida on: November 02, 2011, 08:22:41 PM
Dave, since there was no one in our area that completes stainless restoration that I knew of I asked friends and a friend who owns a restoration shop put me on to Dell Polishing in Ohio. I ended up sending my work to them and could not be happier. I would not be concerned about sending those out as they can be shipped quite easily and lower cost (light wt) compared to parts like a bumper.
Dell Polishing owner, Bruce Dell, is one great guy. Mine was pretty nice stuff overal with just a few dings mostly and a couple twists from being taken off by the previous owner but Bruce has completed what many of us consider miracles on some bent up pieces for past cars restored.
840  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Body bolt kit or re-use originals ??? on: November 02, 2011, 08:04:06 PM
For me Dave the answer was both yes and no! I purchased the AMK complete chassis kit and have used several and many I have not. After awhile of looking at bolt markings and doing some research you quickly find out or start to have a feel for the normal. I had some AMK kit head markings that were exact to my originals and some head markings due to location your not going to see, so both of those were no brainers, but there were plenty that neither matched the actual bolts taken off the car nor other bolt suppliers that were on the car. In those cases, and there were plenty I opted to glass bead and re-phosphate the bolts. Another area the AMK kit/s come in handy involves the usage of the nuts and washers. All in all, I'd do the same thing again, i.e. purchase the AMK Kit and cherry pick!
If you have not completed any phosphate work to date, it's easy!
