Restoration / Original tachometer
« on: November 25, 2009, 08:49:06 AM »
Yesterday I pulled my old and broken fule gauge out and Iīm gonna replace it with a new original tachometer instead.
But I have to enlarge the mounting hole a lot when the tacho needs moore space then the fuel guage!

..but to my quest, how do I secure it on the backside?? I canīt find anything in the Assembly Manual regarding this mounting??  ???
There are three screws in the back that I assume youīre suppposted to use but do you need some moore parts or what?

All non-RS grilles arrived at the plant with the bright surround molding already installed; the plant masked off the molding and the portion of the grille inboard of the molding and painted the outer portion body color.

Another question regarding this.. Was the body color around the grill also a full gloss using exactly the same body paint? ..or did it have flattener in it for a satin finish?
Thanks.

My were painted full gloss like the rest of the car and I doubt it would be different from the factory?! I think it would look strange with it in satin!

Very nice ride Hakan!
It's refreshing to see one with steel wheels, body color paint and dog dish caps.
Too many rally wheels and SS mags floating around for my taste. I'm an "old timer" who remembers that "back in the day" most of the Camaros came with wheel covers or hub caps.

Al

Thanx Al, Iīm glad to hear that and itīs exactly my point too!
Iīve been there with my 18" bling bling wheels but I think theese look much better. I get a lot more response from people with theese wheels set as well. I think this old school COPO-look attracts the eye more! I donīt want toto have a car that looks like all other 69:ers! :)

What a beautiful sight! A pair of Hugger orange '69s! Color me green with envy.

Does your friend plan on adding the missing bumper guards?

Al

I had a friend for a visit during last weekend and I just must let you se my home garage at this pont! :P I donīt think this is a common sight even in a garge in the US.
My friends car is a original 427 former race car and itīs not 100 % original right now but the goal is to restore it to itīs former looks! The original paint is light blue metallic but I just love the Hugger orange!

Now the Hugger has bumper guards!!

The rear ones fitted lika a glove, talk about "bolt on" ! :D


...but with the front ones I had to work hard with the grinder and finally I got them decent in place:


What do you think?

The reasons for me to put them there in the first place was that I allready had the holes for them in the front and I thought it would look nice on a 2" dropped 69 Camaro!  :D

The only standard silver grille I see on the HeartbeatCity site is one that is used. There is an NOS Rally Sport Silver Grille. Did I miss it somehow?

RS grille is always black!

Hugger69, I ran into this problem a few years ago and found it wasn't the guards instead it was the bumper. The guards were made to fit the original bumper, not the repro. I have a 69 here that the customer wants me to add the tall front guards to, but I know I am going to have a time fitting them to the bumper as his car has an older repro bumper on it now. I have heard that these guards do fit the top of the line bumper from Goodmark, but I have not confirmed this with a test fit of my own. They did some serious retooling about 5 years ago on all of their bumpers to be more exact on exterior shape as compared to originals, and of the ones for the 67-68 models they are pretty much dead-on. You are doing about the only thing feasible to make them fit, which stinks because now you have to either rechrome them or paint the edges that you grind............................RatPack........................
Thanx for an quick answer! :)
...I was told, by the former owner in US, that I have a rechromed original front bumper so my guess is that the bumper guard tool are wrong!? Iīm going to use paint and rubber sealing when mounting the guards!
