181  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tall front bumper guards?! on: November 06, 2008, 02:44:57 AM
Those holes were factory-drilled for the lower attachment of the RPO V31 Front Bumper Guards; if V31 wasn't ordered, there were no holes. G31 was Special Rear Springs and the tall rear bumper guards with the rubber inserts, which was included in the Z/28 package.
Thanx for quick answer John!!
...but I could be possible that a X44 had this option you think?? ...or is it more likely they have been mounted as an after market option??

You put a box end wrench inside the subframe and tighten bolt head with a socket on the outside.
..Im not following you here...??
You mean you dont supposed to adjust it inside the bumper??
183  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How to adjust/remount the front bumper on a 69? on: November 05, 2008, 05:07:36 AM
The adjustment slots for the front bumper are located where the large mount bolts into the subframe.  You should have 2 people to adjust it and do one side at a time loosely.  Protect the edge of the grill incase bumper slips down.
I understand that but isnt it very hard to get a vrench in there for tightening the nut??
184  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Tall front bumper guards?! on: November 05, 2008, 05:06:01 AM
How can I know for sure that my 69 X44 came with large front bumper guards??
Cause Ive been wondering about two mysterious holes that I thought every 69 has in the front sand plate, but now I guess theese are for mounting the large guards?!

How can you se that theese holes are drilled from factory or home made??



What else were includeed in the option G31??
185  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / How to adjust/remount the front bumper on a 69? on: November 02, 2008, 05:52:14 AM
Ive just taken the front bumper off while Im painting the grill and I saw that the bumper wasnt in line with the front.
Is there some instruction out there in how to remount the bumper the easiest way so its easy to adjust it without taking it down each time??  Huh
186  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: October 23, 2008, 07:00:05 AM
There were 4 headlamp bezels:

all silver no chrome trim [non-style trim cars]
all silver w/chrome trim [style trim cars]
all black no chrome trim [non-style trim SS cars]
all black w/chrome trim [style trim SS cars]

Where did you find this table??   Huh

i almost never seen a 69 Camaro with all black headlamp bezel!!   Shocked

Ive the exact problem and I also think my seals are from Classic!   Roll Eyes
188  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Firestone or Goodyear F70-14 tires on: August 24, 2008, 09:29:33 AM
It does look good however it is not any where near correct for a 69.

Shocked You have to explain yourself here!!  Huh
In my opinion, and all my sales brochures from 1969, its as correct as it can be, except for the tiny detail mentioned above regarding how the raised white letters were shown!
189  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Firestone or Goodyear F70-14 tires on: August 23, 2008, 12:15:19 PM
I just bought this ones and and i think they look better than the GoodYear tires!

..but your original ones look even better!  Wink
190  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO Z87 what was really included?? on: August 15, 2008, 06:11:50 AM
Thanx Kurt, I forgot to check there first!   Embarrassed
...and the insulation is always molded as mentioned above? Undecided
191  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO Z87 what was really included?? on: August 15, 2008, 03:12:08 AM
Hood insulation was molded...
OK, thanx, first step of my quest has an answer!!  Cheesy
...but was the hood insulation really a part of the Z 87 package - "Custom interior" 1969??  Huh
192  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO Z87 what was really included?? on: August 13, 2008, 02:59:59 PM
..but back to my question above..molded or not ??

...nobody got an idea??
193  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: RPO Z87 what was really included?? on: August 12, 2008, 02:25:34 PM
OK, thanx John!
That means that I probably have that option when I have Custom interior and courtesy, ash tray, glovebox and trunk light? ! Wink

..but back to my question above..molded or not ??
194  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / RPO Z87 what was really included?? on: August 12, 2008, 02:53:58 AM
Ive read some topics here on the CRG regarding hood insulation and Z87 option but Ihavent seen any complete list of what Z87 really consists of?
Ive also looked through my sales brochurs from 1969 and they never mention hood insulation under the option "Custom interior"
This is what I can read from them:
Custom interior includes: special body insulation, molded door panels , carpeted lower door panels, assist grips on doors and instrument panel, rich wood-like ffect on intr. panel and steering wheel, bright pedal trim, glove compartment light and luggage compartment mat.

Questions to asked:
 - What kinda insulation under hood were original in this option 1969? Molded or not? Can I buy one from CI with confidence for an example?
 - What option included trunk and hood light??
195  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: August 04, 2008, 03:18:44 PM
There was nothing special about a COPO car's non-RS grille - they used the same base grille (argent silver) as a six-cylinder grocery-getter.
A base model is a base model independent of engine, huh?! Kurt showed the table explaining this earlier in this topic!

                 Grille Color
   Model         non-RS |   RS
   ------------  ----------------
   SS            black* | black*
   Z28           silver | black*
   All else**    silver | black*
   --------------------------------
   * except Tuxedo Black exterior, which
     all received silver grilles
   ** incl COPO

Im going to repaint my grille in argent silver partly due to the fact that it were the right way for my "plane Jane" from Norwwod and partly because I think it look better also!  Cool

Once again I bow for the impressive facts that one can find in this eminent forum, thank you all Im a happy man now!  Cheesy
