1261  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: September 03, 2013, 01:32:36 PM
If I interpreted your values correctly, the difference seems to be about 0.020"  (20 thousandths) between the known untampered with 487 and the suspect 499 in the area of the stamped numbers?    I think that is MORE than 'crud/dirt'.. and probably is sufficient to remove the original numbers...

THAT is a gym dandy car...  Smiley   I love it.     I hope someone buys it who appreciate it for what it IS.. and not what it 'might be'...

A correct 'CE' warranty replacement engine for any GM/Chevrolet car, is better than any other replacement engine possible (IMO) as far as "originality" is concerned.  It's NOT the factory original engine, but it's what the manufacturer did to 'correct a mfg deficiency'.. (which is what a warranty replacement does)...

I agree with Tom; the DZ on the block only means something IF it is THE original engine for your car (from the factory)... otherwise, it's just a 'stamp'.   If you love the characteristics of the 302 engine, then build yourself a 'functional replacement', and forget the 'DZ' code.

Around 1978, I saw a young lady driving a '69 Pacer, so I turned around, followed her til she parked it, and got the tag number.   At that time, one could call the motor vehicle dept with the tag number and get the owner info.   I called and spoke to her father, a local MD.  When I mentioned the Camaro, he asked..  'What did she do now'?  *L*.  I told him I had no idea, but I liked the car.  He told me she'd had a bunch of tickets in it, and he would sell it for $2000.   I talked to my wife, tried to talk her into it for her daily driver car as my '69 Z28 was orange/black with the pacer interior, and I thought it would make a nice 'sister/wife' car to my Z28..   but she (wife) refused to consider it, and at that time, I had no room or budget for another car to just 'sit'....   but I sure wish I'd bought it!  Smiley

Yours being the ONLY Camaro in the list, we don't really have a choice do we? *G*   Smiley   It sounds like a great car...

I would think any exhaust shop could make you a couple..   
1268  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: *original* 69 Trunk Mat ? on: September 01, 2013, 12:14:59 AM
Appreciate your offer, but I plan to use this one for awhile, patched and all, but I would sure like to find a correct reproduction.   I'm amazed if there is not one...?

Cook,  that was my opinion as well....

I'm sorry about that thumbnail.  THIS is the image I intended to use to show the back textured side of the trunk mat.   It seems to be pebbled and is black.
1271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: *original* 69 Trunk Mat ? on: August 30, 2013, 09:59:15 PM
I wouldn't term the 'socalled NOS' one I had in my hands as 'too nice', or even 'nice', in fact it was totally unacceptable to even be 'called a reproduction.  It had a thin white cloth backing, and the front seemed to be a thin plasticized cloth as well.  It's thickness and weight were  approx. 1/10 of the original rubber mat.   Surely there must be some decent reproductions?  ie. with pebbled black rubber backing, and smooth vinyl top surface?   I took some photographs of my original (I've always assumed this to be the original mat, as it was in my Z28/RS when I purchased the car in 1976, and was worn, torn, and dirty even then.   It still today is in the same condition as it was then since the car has been in storage since 1980.   I'm attaching a couple of photographs in hope someone can confirm for certain this is an original mat, and hopefully tell me if there exists a decent reproduction of the original mat.     Attached are photos of:  1) the full mat removed from the car, 2) a folded back end of it showing both the top pattern and the bottom texture, and 3) a small detailed image of the mat pattern (not houndstooth as generally described).
Thanks.

Assuming it's rubber or tar based, it's effectiveness as a sound dampener has to be much more significant than it's thermal barrier capabilities.

FANTASTIC!!  Smiley    I posted that request, and then went to dinner, come home, and Ed has the answer..  Smiley
Thank you very much ED!!  Smiley

From the photos/info supplied, it *appears* to be a nice car, so it would be a real shame if the someone who said 'RESTAMP' was only guessing, or if he's wrong.
1275  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Remote Mirror bezel/cable removal?? on: August 30, 2013, 05:16:22 PM
Hey guys,  I could sure use some help/tips from someone who has removed a '69 Camaro remote mirror bezel and cable.   I need to remove my driver side door panel to adjust and lubricate my door glass mechanism, and I cannot see out how to remove the bezel from the remote adjuster; the bezel doesn't seem to fit thru the hole in the door panel.   
I'm thinking there MUST be a trick, something I'm unfamiliar with and I do not want to destroy anything.. Smiley    The only potential means to remove it that I can see is to use pliers to release the cables from the adjuster, but there are three of them, and once released (assuming they will release as I imagine), I've no idea how I would get them back into the correct location.   Pictures attached for reference.   Any help appreciated, and Thanks in advance!
