probably some code written by a salvage yard at one time.  looks way to new to be original marking.

No that is not it.  The reason the markings look "new" are because the surface rust has been removed. This is the second time this "GR" has been found on 03 RS cars. Just dont know why??
797  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Letters in Fender extensions on: October 20, 2008, 05:34:28 AM
Can someone tell me what this "GR" means inside my fender extensions. It does not mean Green. My car is Olympic Gold and I spoke to another RS Z/28 owner whose car was built one week later than mine and he too hat this written inside his fender extension. His car was Phantom Green though. Perhaps this like he "XO" on the inside of the fender helps tell the line worker something about the assemble of the car? If some can tell me what this means that would be great.

Thanks

Try Evaporust. You can buy it in a quart jug at Auto Zone. The stuff is amazing. I have been restoring all of my original fasteners, centerlink, brake calibers, steering box, shifter etc off of my 69 Z with unbelievable results. Your POP has a thin type of coating or something on it and you have the owners name on the tape which could be damaged. You may want to paint it on then rinse it off with water. I have been submerging my parts then rinsing with water.

I attached a few pics that show "after" the evaporust. Wish I had some before but they had a lot of surface rust and grime.

Good Luck

The black dip-primed hood, fenders, and header panel were mounted on a conveyor buck in car position with about a 1" gap between the panels when they were sprayed with body color; the outer edges of the vertical weld flange on the hood got full coverage, but very little or no body color normally showed on the inboard side of the hood flange.

Thanks John

Hi All,

The underside of my hood has a very small amount of Gold oversray on it around the cowl and upeer side edges. Was this a typical from the factory?
802  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: NAT MFG marking on fender ??? on: October 06, 2008, 08:46:52 PM
Looks like "Pcs" under the "Nat". That reinforcement may have been the top piece in a container, with the supplier and the number of pieces noted on it. The fender outer "skin" came from Bristol Road Stamping, but that long inner reinforcement was welded to the fender "skin" at the car assembly plant (see the '68 Assembly Manual, UPC 11-13, sheet A3).

I have "GR" written on the inside of my lower fender extensions. My car is an Olympic Gold RS Z/28. Any idea what this means? I would post a picture but the file is to large.
803  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 03, 2008, 09:12:32 PM
Thanks 68Z. I am just going to put them on and drive it. I will see what happens. I will only drive the car around 1500 miles a year anyway.
804  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 03, 2008, 06:16:55 AM
Depends on how much you'll drive it.
If it's a show car, you can reuse them. If you're going to drive it, paint some Koni's grey and be done with it. The repros won't hold up to regular driving.....

I'd be interested in a picture of the shock date stamps if you get a chance... Smiley



Kurt here is a pic witth the date code. If you want a larger file that you can zoom in on let me know and I will email you a picture.

Here are some markings off my 69 Z/28 fender.

"XO"

Anybody know how to make a picture file smaller?

 
806  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 01, 2008, 08:25:42 PM
My car has approx 36K miles on it and I would like to use my original front shocks. Is this being unrealistic? Are they just to old? Is there a way to test them prior to installing on the car? I would like to find new rubber for the bottom of the shocks and install that prior to finishing the project. I can use the repro sprirals but want to use as many original parts as possible.

I soaked the front shocks in evaporust and painted them. Here are the pics.

One source is AMK Products.  Their fastener catalog is on line.  Many good pictures of the various NOS / OEM fasteners that they have in stock.

www.amkproducts.com

Rich thanks, you are right this is a good source.
808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Fastener description or pictures on: August 27, 2008, 11:34:49 AM
Is there a written description or pictures of the fasteners used to assemble a 69 Camaro. I know the AIM has the part number listed but I need a resource to call on in case I have questions about what bolt goes where when it is time to reassemble. I have my fasteners labled in seperate plastic bags but was just looking for one more resource.



Thanks
809  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Lifting Hooks on: August 25, 2008, 12:42:15 PM
Jerry,

Thanks for the information. That is how mine were before I took them off just wanted to confirm they were on correct the first time.

I do have your fact book for  69 Z/28's. Is this the same book you are talking about?

Thanks,

The one that does not have the "cut" out of the corner?

Thanks
