1276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Front Brake Hoses.. on: August 08, 2013, 08:32:54 PM
I've got 3 'older' cars which I purged, cleaned, changed all the rubber parts, and changed over to Dot5/Silicone fluid, the oldest 25 yrs ago (a '69 Corvette).  The other cars are a '60 Corvette, and a '57 Bel Air.   No brake problems since with any of them, even though they sit most of the time.   I've recently gone thru the Camaro's brakes the same way, and installed silicone fluid in it, although it has not been driven as yet.  For someone who has many cars, which sit more than they are driven, I strongly recommend silicone fluid to reduce costs and effort in keeping your cars maintained.   If I only had a single car, which I drove often, then perhaps I'd make a different choice, but I'm not sure.

Now I understand, that car looks sweet in the drive way with the early torq thrusts. Still surprises me to see so many unrestored cars without the console gauges factory, it seems like more of the track oriented cars did not have them. Maybe they ran a set of mechanical stewart warner gauges instead.

Race/Track cars used *real* gauges; mostly the 'gauges' installed by the factory back then were laughed at, especially the tachs, and electrical gauges/idiot lights.   I don't think I've ever seen a real race car that used the factory gauges.

Someone was recently asking/looking for a speaker bracket for their '69 Camaro..   there is one on ebay.

and shown below is the assembled view.   The 'collapsed length' of my antenna is 18" from tip to the top of the retainer nut.
Hi Austin,  well.. it's not MY resizing skills, it's done by the Light Image Resizer software, recommended on this site by JohnZ many months ago, and which I tried and liked, and ultimately purchased.   It's quick and easy and does retain outstanding detail in very small file sizes.   After taking my higher resolution image, I first run it thru Paint to clip out the portion I want to post, then use the Light Image Resizer on the clipped portion.   You can repeat the process with lower detail until the file size fits the CRG requirement.   I think the images I posted this morning were 100kb or less each...   Try it.. you'll love it too! and we'll get to see more photos of your car too! Smiley  you can download and use it for free, but after several uses, it gets *slower* unless you purchase it.. Smiley    For $20-30 it's great.

And thanking JohnZ again for recommending it previously!  Smiley

I also noted additional bumper mounted rear reflectors? or lights?    Are these peculiar to Swedish sold cars?  or obvious owner add-on's for some reason?   The rear mounted driver side whip antenna was also peculiar...?

1282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 OEM AM antenna question. on: August 08, 2013, 10:21:10 AM
Because of your questions on the Camaro AM antennas, I pulled my parts out yesterday and took some photos:
antenna mast tip, antenna mast lower end with other parts,  mount and retainer from lower side with PNs, antenna connector showing 'chevy bowtie script'.  I could not find a PN on the mast itself, nor on the cable connector, but mine had an A-1 on the side opposite the bowtie emblem.  PN on the base (which fits against the fender) is:   3937665.   The pn on the lock wasn't entirely legible, but might have been 3943655.
1283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Part Number Stamp or Sticker on Wiper Motor Assy on: August 07, 2013, 03:22:50 PM
Check it and post all the codes you can find..   PN, and all others.. and whether it's stamped into the metal, paint/ink
 stamped on, or ??
1284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 OEM AM antenna question. on: August 06, 2013, 08:43:37 PM
And yes the masts themselves were the same between Camaro and fullsize

Thanks guys. Really good info. How's it going Warren? I didn't think there would be any differences really but just had to ask. I'm still curious about the tip though. Shaun from the SS427 website had one I bought that has no groove on the tip and was wondering why. Looks good overall and the tip looks the same as the ones posted but no groove. Just one of those curious observations I get. Should there be a groove or not? Probably need more info.

This website is great. I can't say enough about all the help you guys have given me in the past even for the common parts that fit other vehicles, this is the place to find stuff out. No messing around here, just straight to the point.

There was an earlier thread a couple of months ago pertaining to the antenna tip being grooved or not.   As I recall, some original cars had each.  My 09C original car has a non grooved tip.

Updating the Windshield Wiper Motor data list with CROB's info..  since he didn't do it himself..  Smiley
(and I noticed the Julian date code on his motor is about a month prior to car build date, and stickers were used as early as May)

Please add your information to the bottom of the chart and repost for the data point collection....

Car build date    NOR/LOS      RS?       sticker PN?       Stamped PN?                 Other codes

1286  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 'yellow light' AM/FM radio? on: August 06, 2013, 08:31:47 PM
This is also mentioned in John Hoopers book The 1969 Camaro reference book, along with how many were sold( 8271 yellow, vs 2359 blue). The yellow also had a different option number of RPO U69, and the blue was RPO U79. It might be a handy book to have in your library.
John Hoopers book covers some different aspects than Jerrys, I wouldn't say one is better than the other, most of the info is similar of coarse, but Hoopers book has some neat little tid bits, like the RS option added almost 30lbs to the curb weight of the car along with many other interesting options and facts. You may find it a good read as well.

I've had that book since it was first published, and I probably read it cover to cover way back, but obviously didn't pay enough attention to the am/fm radios, since my car only had the am... Smiley
1287  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 'yellow light' AM/FM radio? on: August 06, 2013, 07:56:09 AM
A few days ago, a friend suggested that there were yellow light am/fm radios, that may have been used part of the year on 1969 Camaros.   All I've ever heard or seen were blue light.   Is there any truth to that??
1288  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Part Number Stamp or Sticker on Wiper Motor Assy on: August 05, 2013, 10:36:58 PM
Steve,

Add your data to the listing for all your motors, and add the additional column.   easier now than when the list is larger *G*
1289  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: August 05, 2013, 08:33:48 PM
If I'm not mistaken, there is a company which makes a lot of these parts which has the name "REPOP"...    Repro' is a more appropriate abbrev for Reproduction, and REPLACEMENT parts are not necessarily 'reproduction' either, if they simply replace the intended function, without a concerted effort to replicate the look, mfg, etc as well.

Updating the list with my assembly plant (NOR)...

Perhaps we can start off some data point collection, following on from Gary's chart?
If we can add the sticker details here, it may start to indicate a date range for sticker use....
Gary - I also added in column for final assembly plant.
