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.

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! Smiley

Thanx! Cheesy
...itīs the detailing that makes the looks!

That is quite a garage! Too bad you cant own both of them lol. That would be an awesome pair of Hugger Orange cars

Agree! Cheesy

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

Thanx! yes , as I wrote above, his intention is to restore the car as once appered when leaving the Chevrolet assembly line!!.....and that will include the missing bumper guards! Wink

I had a friend for a visit during last weekend and I just must let you se my home garage at this pont! Tongue 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!







158  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: New tall bumpers guards, they donīt fit! on: June 23, 2009, 05:47:46 AM
Now the Hugger has bumper guards!!

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


...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!  Cheesy
159  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: GM NOS Standard Grille (Silver) for 69 Camaro Z28 on: June 16, 2009, 08:18:27 AM
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! Smiley
...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!

...nobody has a any experince??  Undecided
162  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / New tall bumpers guards, they donīt fit! on: June 15, 2009, 06:21:48 AM
Hi!
Has anybody else had problems when mounting repro bumper guards, specially in the front on a 69 Camaro??  Huh
I have to use the grinder to take a lot of material, and crome, away so the guard at least fit the bumper shape...! Sad

I bought the bumper guards from NPD cause i heard that they had rather good quality!  Roll Eyes
163  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: front grill & bezels on: June 08, 2009, 05:35:38 AM
there was a recent thread about this: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=4185.0
There are some photos there that may help.
Depending on where you are located, or if you are going to Carlisle, I might be interested in the used black grill.

I started that thread so Iīm familiar with the quest! Iīve just painted the egg mesh Argent silver and I think it went ok!



164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: A new Camaro we can all relate to on: June 03, 2009, 06:48:45 AM
Has anyone noticed that the Camaro is not on the list of cars that GM is supposedly going to keep building in the next few years after restructuring?...................RatPack.................

didn't you guy's see that memo ? GM stopped making camaro's in mid 1970 with the end of the 1969 model production year !

Hi five!!
