I've used a large flat blade screwdriver for that purpose before....

Originality / Re: '67 RS/SS Pinstripe Delete?
« on: October 23, 2018, 02:21:29 AM »
If it was possible to delete it would it have been a credit? Just wondering? And would it get a special paint code on the trim tag? BTW, there was a black '69 Z at Dallas Mecum auction with the Z stripe delete.

The pinstripes weren't coded on the tag, so if deleted...  nothing different on the tag (IMO).

If the pinstripes were included with other options/features, I doubt there would have been a 'credit'.

PS.  I special ordered a 1970 model RR and deleted one of the std stripe...  no credit... :)  nor did I expect one.

While I can't say for *certain* that Chevy allowed that, *MOST* dealers/mf'ers allowed deletion of almost anything that did not interfere/impact with some other function/feature...  I can't think of anything that would be impacted by deletion of pinstriping...?

Advice:   you don't want to 'trap' any existing road salts underneath new undercoating!   Before you apply new undercoating, I would strongly suggest a thorough cleaning of the area to remove any road salts, then ensure it's thoroughly DRY (several days wait after drying), before applying new undercoating.

Most of us have no recourse but to use the available parts store spray cans for undercoating...

leather is better than vinyl...  there are companies that will make seat covers for you using your material of choice (black leather) in the pattern of your choice (69 std)...

Has CRG ever seen a documented original car with a 6 month delay between planned and actual produc tion?   What is the largest delay we've seen/documented??

Why? What is different?

That was my thought as well.....  ?

that car is SO rare, I think that only an idiot owner would want to sell it.....   he should take his ads down and keep that car as it's rarity will just continue to increase...   :)

I change my mind... :)    The photos tell a different story than the words.... :)

Odd thing is if it is a good body and has what he says, the price is not stupid.

If the body is halfway decent, and has the parts described, then it's probably a very good deal at $10K based on what I see awful camaros sell for....

Take the photo with your i-phone (if that's all you have?) then EMAIL it to  your computer, and use a software package (I like 'Light Image Resizer' but you can also use PAINT if you have nothing else to reduce the file size (or resolution) after first 'trimming' the image to only the portion you want to show...  Each image file size has to be below 200 KB (compressed JPG) to post here...

The vendor will likely quadruple their price if they realize they fit early Camaros too...  :)

.. SO I just ordered the parts on the 'take a chance' principle!   (didn't want to take the door apart to check first).. :)
