nice find, seems like a bit much to me , I suspect rot in the roof from the vinyl top.

I agree too pricey

I would leave it as is for awhile, but I know the paint bug would get me and I would have to paint it. Especially if the panels are all good.

34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Wiring Harness on: February 24, 2014, 07:38:01 AM
Guys,
I am going to put a new wiring harness on the Silver convertible, and wanted to get one with the correct color clips that attach the harness to the body. I have used M&H and Lectric Limited with success on my Corvettes but have not replaced a wiring harness on my Camaros. Can someone suggest a company that makes a harness with the correct color clips taped in the harness? Of course the fit has to be good too.

Thanks,

Lawrence

This car is discussed on Yenko.net. One of the members there owns it. Sounds nice.

Thanks John. Would it be possible that the housing is just not making good ground to the ash tray. A simple twist or turn may help?

Thanks

Could be - the inner housing grounds to the ashtray at its lip at the front, and the outer housing grounds to the ashtray at its serrated flange on the back side of the ashtray panel. Make sure the outer housing is "cutting paint" on the back of the panel.

Thanks John will check it out.

The cig lighter on my Silver Z does not work. I have 12 volts on the flange inside the cylinder of the lighter. My lighter works, tested it in the Gold car. I am guessing when you push the lighter in for it to heat the flange in the cylinder slides in the lighter and the circuit has ground somewhere for the lighter to heat? I cleaned up the lighter with a Dremel, cleaned up the the cylinder with a Dremel. Still nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks

Lawrence
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 5 originals rallywheels 67 code DG on: February 11, 2014, 08:46:16 PM
DG Rally wheels are 15" x 6" Corvette wheels produced in January and early February 67. I have never seen any 14" wheels coded DG.

1967 Corvette 15x6 rally wheels are coded "DC".

Paul

Actually there were both DG and DC 15X6 67 corvette rally wheel and believe most of the DG wheels were very early wheels but they are the same wheel, just with different letters. The DG wheel was also used on station wagons from 1967-70 according to JohnZ. And yes, there was a DG 14" rally wheel and have seen them both advertised and at flea markets. So in reality, everyone was correct...... Smiley


Actually the DG wheels showed up on the January February 67 cars. I have a 67 Big Block Coupe that has the original spare (DG code) in the spare tire tub, and my car body is dated mid February with most of the other components of the car dated late January 67.

Thanks for the reply. heiferduster. I am pretty sure the 67 and 68 - 69 are a little different. The 68 69 require a ground for the light to illuminate.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Trouble Shooting the Low Fuel light on: February 09, 2014, 09:17:27 AM
I think I have done all I can to trouble shoot my low fuel light not coming on but wanted to post this and see if I have missed anything.

1. I have grounded the light at the dash and the bulb illuminates.
2. I have unplugged the connector in the trunk for the gas gauge, and grounded it. The gauge goes to empty but the low fuel does not illuminate.
3. I have checked the three wires from the low fuel module and they are all connected to the fuel gauge. The plug with the yellow wire going to it is connected under the gauge cluster in the console.
4. I have confirmed the wiring harness at the back of the console is connected.

I guess I am going to have to replace the module at this point. UNLESS anyone has any other ideas on how to troubleshoot this. I am looking for a bad connection or loose wire etc. Not sure where else to look. Any ideas?

Thanks

Lawrence

I am running P215 70R15 on my RS Z28 with no problems. I like JohnZ idea of running 225 60 R15
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How big of a tire will fit on the front of a 69 on: February 06, 2014, 08:14:09 PM
The 235 60 15's are on the x77 car not the RS car.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How big of a tire will fit on the front of a 69 on: February 05, 2014, 08:24:31 PM
These tires are going on the Silver X77 original paint car. As far as I know it too has not been restored (looks that way anyway). The car naturally does not have the wheel well moldings so no rubbing on those or the inner radius of the fender. I have driven the car over speed bumps, down the road made turns etc. and so far so good, no rubbing. The torque thrust wheels that these tires are on are 15 x 7.

I do need new tires on the X33 car so good to know that the 215 65 70R15 fit well on the YH wheels. I will consider those tires. I currently am running 1993 vintage (ouch) P215 70 R15 BFG T/A Radials that don't rub at all. BUT the car has new springs in the front and re-arched stock springs in the back.
