361  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Paint for Hockey Stick Stripe and Rear of S.S. on: July 04, 2007, 09:12:32 AM


"Regarding black tail panels and rockers, the original paint cars I have inspected an owned have been semi gloss, say 70-80% gloss. This issue has been debated for ever. I believe many semi gloss tail panels have been polished over the years and this tends to make them appear gloss. "

   And it will still be debated. The orig paint tail panels I have seen I would call  closer to gloss and not from polishing over the years. Definately not semi gloss.

Jonesy,  If you are willing, I 'd love a set of NOS black D/90 stripe sets.  Name your price.  PM me.

That was the best turnout of Camaro's I have ever attended and I have been to a bunch over the years. Weather was maybe 75 with a light breeze. I think my new favorite 68 color is Sequoia green with the sunlight hitting it late in the day...Wow

I'll be there with my red 67 Pro-touring Camaro and just bothering people in general... It really is a great chance to see some spectacular restorations and they are on a car hoist during judging so you get a chance to see some undercar details. I think I like looking under the cars more than any other part.

Last year I sold a 69 Camaro of mine to a friend that had Baer 13" rotors with Alcon calipers and a power brake booster. It was the hardest stopping Camaro I have ever had. The car had a 427" smallblock making 614 hp on pump gas. Was built by a GM  performance ride and handling engineer. I would give people rides and demo the brakes. They would then want those brakes. I had even put just street pads on it.  Amazing difference between them and any stock GM brake I have driven. A stock system will work fine most of the time but there are harder stopping brakes out there.
  The same GM engineer is re-doing my 67 Camaro that he had built years ago. I think it has 12" Baers. He has researched boosters and I think he is going with a setup from Detroit Speed and Engineering. That car has a 565" big block with a 6 speed and needs to be able to stop quickly.

Just took the seat out of my X22 L89 and took this pic.

I think I had a LA built 69 with it stamped probably four times on the top. Not overstrikes. Kurt probably has pics somewhere.

The car I took the pics of is a 17000 mile car with manual rear antenna listed on the orig window sticker. It was repainted once by the orig owner. Orig 1/4 and antenna hole.

Here are pics. Hooking a tape measure on the lip at the back of the 1/4 panel it is right at 15" to the center of the antenna. Looks off in the pic but the camera was at a angle. Hooking the tape on the trunk lip it was right at 1 7/8" from the trunk lip to center of antenna.
371  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear antenna hole on: March 23, 2007, 11:15:23 PM
My L89 has factory rear antenna. Give me a couple days and I can get you some pics with a tape measure so the body guy can understand.

I would put on a Goodyear Wide Tread F70-14.    "NOT POLYGLAS"!!!!!!! I can get you a pic of a spare out of a low mile 69 Pace car.

For future reference...  The # 1 Pace Car's L78 engine was assembled March 3rd. It is a 03C car. The L35 engine was blueprinted on April 3rd and it was dynoed on April 10th.
