A orig owner of a black low mile orig paint LS6 Chevelle suggested that the tail panels and rockers were probably shot in gloss black but not polished or buffed at all. Food for thought.

I had a 8000 mile 69 Yenko that got a 68 vinyl top when new. It was ordered with the top but came without it so Yenko ordered a new vinyl top and installed it but it was a 68 and not a 69. I actually like the looks of it. You could never remove that top but it sounds like it might get docked points.

I would hope that owners of cars that were modified at the dealer when new and had paperwork to back it up would not be penalized points for leaving those items on. If they get docked points and start removing the dealer installed items for the sake of judging we are losing a cool part of the cars history. There ought to be a way to encourage owners to preserve how they left the lot.

That's frequently a classic symptom of the front system metering valve (the round one below the master cylinder) being stuck open, which causes the front brakes to engage before there's any engagement at all of the rear drums. That valve (when it's working) doesn't allow any fluid displacement in the front system until the rears see 30-40 psi, to get the rear shoes out to the drums for a balanced application.
..........  I did not know that....Cool.

After seeing the orig paint 67at Carlisle last year I would say the tail panels are gloss. The orig. gloss tail panels I have seen were shinier than the 67 at Carlisle. My only problem with looking around the trunk seal is sometimes it gets barely sprayed and it looks dry sometimes

I have tried to upload a pic of a  orig.68 Camaro floor pan plug that is painted along with the sealer but the site tells me to contact admininstator because upload limit has been reached or something like that.

Here is my 20' Featherlite with a 69 Camaro in it to give you a idea of the room you have. Plenty of room in front of the car unless you are a hardcore racer needing a workbench, tires etc. I think it is actually 22' to the tip of the V.

"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.
