Hey Jonesy,
     
        I, nor the others see any weld lines. These ends looked dipped. The car is a 05d  69 build. How clean were these welds? Maybe we all need glasses!!!!!

Hey Everybody,

            I'm getting ready to purchase and install a new exhaust system and wanted to stay with the stock exhaust I bought it with. I am the second owner. The question I have is this, was there ever an option for a 69 X55 SS to have chrome exhaust tips? Mine do. They are not welded on, the few people that looked at it says it's the original exhaust but wasn't sure the factory would do that, however, the dealer might have. When I replace the exhaust I want to leave it the way it came off the lot.        Thanks, John

Hi Guys,
           I'm currently going over my new purchase of a 69 Convertible X55 and have a few questions I hope you can guide me through. This car is extremely stock and original. I don't want to change anything that would deter from the originality factor so that's why I have these questions.
           1st. My car came with dealer installed air.  Right now it has the regular radiator with a cooler installed in front of it and a flex type fan replacing the stock original fan back in 69 when the dealer installed the air. The current radiator has some problems.  Question is, should I replace as is and leave it as it came from the dealer, or upgrade the radiator. I would like to just replace the original thin radiator with a correct 4 core radiator. I believe this would help keep the car running cooler and not deter from it's originality to much.
            2nd. I have to replace the subframe bushings. Question is, should I go with correct rubber or aftermarket poly? I'm getting different opinions on both good and bad.
            3rd. I have a small dent in the oil pan by the drainplug and it is not seating tightly. Should I pound it out and keep the original or just put the correct new one in?
            The rest of the car is in great condition and I want to leave it as it came off the lot back in 69. Please give me your opinions on these repairs/replacements.

 Hi Guys,
        I took delivery of my 69 SS Convertible Camaro and was told by the seller that the motor was assembled in Tonawanda. Is there some significance to this. The engine # does start with a T and the build date is correct. This is a # matching car. I was just curios about the significance if any.       Thanks.

The springs on a SS hood are a bit longer than a stock flat hood because the SS hoods and cowl hoods are heavier than the stock hoods therefore needing the longer springs. You said you read the report, it's a weight and leverage issue, heavier hood equals longer springs. Use the new ones you ordered, it's correct and safe.

So maybe the dealer that added the air had his machine shop use something like a metal holesaw to cut these real clean whenever someone added dealer installed air. This is an original AZ car no rust whatsoever, Don't rain much in AZ, I can see why he added air if he bought it off the lot. I'm going to try to track down the dealer and ask some questions. You can't get answers if you don't ask. Thanks, The more input the better.

Do you guys think the dealer cut these holes in order for the dealer installed  air conditioning unit to help vent out extra heat generated by the compressor? Once again, the diecut holes are perfectly cut. Does anyone out there with dealer added air have these holes cut out like this or could you special order this type of hood. I haven't taken possession of the car yet to test out the amount of air going in or out of the louvers. Should be about 5 days. The snorkel comment sounds right unless those 8 holes 2.5 approx. dia. can bring alot of air circulating around the engine compartment. Thanks for your inputs. Looking for any and all comments, suggestions and facts that I can get.

Here are the pics. From the top view you can barely see the shading coming through the louvers. With the hood up you can clearly see the diecut holes. It is effectively getting air to the engine . Once again, these holes are not cut ragged or uneven or has any type of burred edge. Each hole is cut to the same dimension and spaced exactly on each side of the louver. This would seem to be a great idea for this hood as long as you don't have insulation.

That's always what I've seen in, but these are perfect diecut holes. No rough edges or tweaked lines. I'll post some pics as soon as possible. Thanks for your responses. I'm sure I'll be asking more questions later.
