I remember May 18th like It was yesterday.

Thought factory wheels were painted black on the back, service wheels were grey?

CBTN Figure 17-9.
The way I read the painting notes:

PLAIN K-H Part No E-82277 Cust PN _____
Coat with Rustproofing Oil: K-H Part No E-82278 Cust Part No. 3958480
Gray Primer K-H Spec B-3352: K-H Part No E-82279   Cust Part No. 3966934
Same as E-82279 except tape  identify for Chevrolet Service: K-H Part No E-82280

This relates to the 69 AD rally.

I assume you guys are hashing out the SS AO/YA wheels at this point. Does anyone have a copy of the CBTN for 70-75 & does it contain the K-H drawing with notes on it that might clarify.

I could not believe it, I had a frame hanging on the wall,,,matched the reported dealer! My state records search ended in a dead end in 1975.
Bothell Brothers Chevrolet-Cadillac INC. of Auburn Washington, Dealer Code # 47 Zone # 42.

Dealer History: Bothell was born in Seattle on March 28, 1930, to the late Howard Sr. and Dorothy Bothell, founders of the Bothell Chevrolet Company in Auburn that later became Bothell Brotherís Chevrolet. Bothell and his brother, Howard Bothell Jr., took over the family business, eventually changing the name to Auburn Chevrolet. The brothers sold the family business in 2001. The dealer is still open as Auburn Chevy.
Looking forward to search for many more dealer items at the local swap meets.

By George, you're right!  I zoomed in on this 1969 Z/28 from the '69 model year launch in '68 and notice the tires are Firestone Sport Car 200s...


Wow look at the differences...
No drip rail trim, no 302 on the ZL2 hood, rear stripes on the deck lid edge, rear stripes to rear glass trim is 3-4 inches.

Black stripes on a NON vinyl top car, probably been discussed before as found in some of the pics at the GM photo store. I like the combo.

There is a lot a of area to cover, hence the weather thing.  There is also a lot of junk and people with junk that want a lot of money.  I go with just the outside chance I might find something.  One year there was a junkyard there with alternators and dists.  I was looking through a pile and he asked what numbers I was looking for and told him.  He said he's sure they had some of those back and the yard, but he could only bring so many.  I lost his number and can't remember what the name of the place was.  I'd love to find a bunch of rare number alts. and dizzys.

I am headed to Portland Thurs-Sat. Prepp'g for wet weather. For sure not a lot of deals to be had in my opinion, but the meet is the biggest in the NW.

I bet the 'yard' was American Classics in Vancouver, they know the numbers game & the rare gold is lone gone.

Beer-Wings at Hooters FRI night NW of the expo center!

I am in the market for a replacement TOP for my 69 Pacer.

When researching sources I found a few like the Local manufacture right here in Wa state.

but,,,,,,I am going to drive up there & check them out in person this spring,,,,,

I also would like to hear about actual drop top owners experiences with the products out there.

I found the following on my Van Nuys Pace car (04C) when cleaning up the subframe. The orange stripe is out of frame to the right

This is great news- agreed.

Your vehicles history can be composed (documented) by a patch work of information. This $50 expense is easily worth it. 
FWIW. I had (in 1996) the WA state Dept of Motor Vehicles perform a micro film search ($26) and got records back to a dead end 1974. ALL the printed material had the privacy act (PII) Personal Identification Information cut out with an 'exacto' knife. So as to comply and protect past owners from being ID'd or contacted.

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: just bought a 67 RS/SS350 survivor on: January 10, 2014, 09:34:55 PM

Can not wait to see pics of this one.
Neat car.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ziebart... How to remove it? on: January 10, 2014, 09:33:07 PM

My experience with undercoating (Dealer installed) was 2 fold. Areas where the coating was subjected to prolonged exposer to leaking powertrain fluids became a oozing goo, softened by the oil & trans fluids. This stuff required lots of solvent based removal efforts. Other (The majority) areas were hard as a rock and mechanical removal via scrapers of various types was the preferred method. I purchased lots of varying types of scrapers from swap meets and the coating would chips off and go flying of revealing PRISTINE sheet metal. The benefit was I could see the factory primers and topcoat overspray patterns which I tried to duplicate (Mostly).

Q. How much undercoating did the dealer install?
A. >17lbs

Could-? Part of the problem is Parts(OEM) (Correct)(Date Correct)(Restored) costs.
I know the "KIDS" laugh at any reference to a +>$200 trunk seal on ebay,,,,,,,
You OLD men.
I am 50 & like others had a 67 in high school so the First gens are a natural to me, unexplainable,,,,,

A friends 20's y/o son has gone thru Dozens of "CRAIGS LIST" Cars (This Pacer is NOT typical) and his 'horse' trading skills are amazing,,,,,,eventually he acquired a 68 Camaro project 250cu/in car after years of haggling. This is One method for the younger group to approach these cars with out the sting of debt which they cannot afford or qualify, but ALL of us want for our gems.
