Darrell, Do you know the Header brand and primary tube size. I noticed 67 w/ P.S.
If you know the exact PN or was it something that was found along the way- acquired with car?

FYI
Another good substitute for the black rub material for the front window guides that I have used often is black velcro ( the loop side that is thicker) 2 " works good.

Mike

The material looks very similar to "ballistic nylon fabric". Tough, but slick.
We use it extensively in Submarine repair work at the Public Naval Shipyards.

I really like the Velcro (Loop)  idea

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 rag exhaust replacement on: January 11, 2015, 12:06:09 PM
Hello all. I need some advice on replacing my entire exhaust on my 67. I live in Canada. I am not sure if I should just go to a muffler shop or if I should order a package and do it myself. I will be going to the Portland swap meet in April. Should I just buy a set there and bring it back to Canada?
If you choose this route Call Jeff @ http://www.biscaysclassic.com/camaro.html#misc and see if he can help you by ordering it taking delivery and meeting you At Portland then you p/u for the ride north.

That is a good question. I am wondering, out loud, does "JUST DASHES" also reskin headrests in spite of the company name?
I have seen some DYI attempts at car shows that look funny, like Hannibal Lector got into interior restoration work (sorry about that).

Question: Was this the # used for all three years?
I found one also that seems like it is unpainted black phosphate coated probably a throw away item as the cars were serviced  & modified over the years.

was there a BB version also?

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: '68 lower control arm won't fit in subframe on: November 03, 2014, 10:29:19 PM
I had to use a Jack & a Block of Wood to get my driver side to "SLIDE" it into the subframe gap. It was a bear to align and used a bar to remove it and try again. I used PST replacement bushings and attributed the tight fit to the new bushings and lack of give of the urethane bushing material. I used the silicone grease supplied with the suspension kit as an aid to lube the install also. 1/8" (0.125") is tight but if I remember correctly the subframe is flanged and rounded (radius) and should have some Flex to it. It may be possible to Dremel grind down the inner sleeve a few thou' to give you some clearance. I have never had these just "FALL" out or into place.

Tough call If it was "ME" & I needed the cash, I would sell it & move on.
I am one of those 68 Guys and realize how important (The born with motor) is to the 68Z  -vs- a missing original lump. So as a hobbyist I would want to see it reunited (Cue the music) for the car to be "More" legit & enjoyable.
Otherwise just hold on to it, List it with the orphans and keep your feelers out and "orphan-list it" for a call in the future.
Some owners really care more about some repop emblems on a clone than the chance at acquiring a integral piece of automotive history.
Best of luck to you.

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 z/28 373 rear end inspection marks on: September 21, 2014, 10:39:52 PM
john302.
My Dec 1967 built car (1968) 12bolt had a ton of graffiti on a rear end
PP 1218G1
Examples: Yellow Dab forward middle drivers side of carrier, Orange Dab rear upper passanger side.
Axels green dab both sides in center of flange area. Internal to carrier orange on main caps for carrier.
WHite dabs on the wheel studs ends.
Additionally, the sticker-tag yellow w/ black lettering "PP" on the passanger drum face.
It was very easily found cuase my 396 rear main leaked for years and coated everything with a layer of grease-oil preservation, light cleaning with simple green was all it to to expose these details.
I can dig for pics.
I chose to 'Clownout' my rear based on what I found, after a bit of over restoration, paints plating, etc,,,,,

Have yet to go to a show where someone notices ANY of it.

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Question about original dealer license plate frames on: July 20, 2014, 01:14:04 PM
Variations account of bolt patterns. Look at the rear vs front, top bolts vs bottom bolt patterns.

I found a place where you can purchase BLANKS then have a local sign shop make up sticker-decals matching you fav dealer. We would walk the car  shows looking for a popular dealer (Take pictures for accurate repop'g) - ALAN GREEN chev in Burien- Everyone wanted a MINT! for orig in the PNW, so we repoped them ourselves for our personal consumption, Logo concerns ya know.

REPOP for sure, but hey, DIY!

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z Clutch Safety switch on: July 17, 2014, 10:59:25 PM
Thanks, John.

It does look like the stamped housing has heavy tabs on the side opposite the leads connection points. They look pretty heavy and it would take some care to pry them 90 degrees vertical to allow the plastic body to lift out,,the lever on the back side most likely drives a wiper contact with raised nubs that could be polished (Burnished) with a rubberized abrasive like Craytex. the stationary's are probably riveted to the switch leads. A little lithium lube and re-crimp and good to go. I am not a 4sp guy, do the vendors repop this thing, as that might make it not worth the effort, unless it looks like a submarine hatch switch in comparison ha ha ha
