Thanks Austin..   Smiley
1292  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Paint stripping rear spoiler? on: September 12, 2013, 11:24:54 PM
I've used 'Captain Lees' stripper on several corvette bodies; that seems to be the solution used by most when chemical stripping.  It's quick, esp on lacquer, and cleans up with water... (although you should always follow with a solvent or special cleaner to make sure ..)

Just spray it on, NOT in a windy environment, wait a minute or so, and then use a 'cut' plastic bondo spreader to scrape off the paint layers... (onto newspapers you can toss.. don't get it on anything else)..

1294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: '69Z 302 - current header recommendations please? on: September 12, 2013, 08:35:41 PM
The headers on my car when I purchased it also had no clearance issues with anything, everything was in place, but after sitting for many years, they were totally rotted, so I bought new ceramic coated headers..   and they DO have clearance issues.. 
I think the original ones were Hedman.  Are those still available? in the same design as original?

They have the first one 'sold/delivered' to the public, thru that dealer's anxiety to sell a car..  but it's likely NOT SN xxxxx0001...   As I recall, the dealers were supposed to keep them under wraps, and as soon as they were introduced, we began seeing many of them on the road almost immediately... at ~$1900 ..   everyone could afford one.. (and the six cyl might have been cheaper?)..
1296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: PTB on Los Angeles Camaros on: September 12, 2013, 08:23:40 PM
I've owned my car since 1976, drove it regularly for 4 yrs or so before I parked it in 1980, and always believed that stuff was 'restoration graffiti', until JohnZ explained to me once a couple of years ago what they meant and they were 'really put on the cars by Fisher body'.. so I went with a bright light and looked .. and.  VOILA.... there they were, and after I took my brake booster off the firewall, I found a 'second T' behind some of the components under the Trim tag.. (all on the driver's side)..  I never found any on the passenger side, even after removing the heater housing.

Damn, looks like a better version of mine. No clock and no standard steering wheel though. I like it.
'Prettier' isn't always an indication of 'better'..  Smiley
1298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 12, 2013, 08:09:24 PM
Dave - flat for Camaro production. 70 Chevelle had ridges and so do the reproductions. Here is a great thread over at TC to reference http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54696
Brian
There are recent reproductions that are 'advertised' as 'flat bottoms'..... although I haven't seen them..
1299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Charlotte Autofair on: September 12, 2013, 10:48:36 AM
I really appreciate the information and help Phillip!   I've replied to your PM as well!

I've made a reservation at the Country Inn & Suites near the airport (opposite side of town from the speedway, but just off I-85 and on the side of Charlotte that we will be coming in on.  Hopefully it's nice enough, and right now they are running a 25% discount (next 2 days) which makes the rate much more reasonable.

I'll look you and your fella Camaro club members up when I get there on Friday... Smiley

PS.  if the show opens at 8 am..  what is considered 'early enough' ?   Smiley  7?    6?   Smiley

1300  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: X33 car, should it have black door sills? on: September 11, 2013, 10:11:44 PM
the AIM associates 'black rockers' to the Z21 option..   that's right.  that's the exterior moulding package.. Smiley
Sorry about that.    RS is Z22...   Thanks for correcting me Steve.

Z21 is included with RS?  right?  so RS would have the black rockers as well?
1301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Charlotte Autofair on: September 11, 2013, 09:21:19 PM
I began making tentative plans to attend today, so I'm *hoping* it works out.   Any suggestions for where to stay or any other suggestions re  a first timer's attendance at that show?   I've wanted to go for years, but never made it.. thus far..  Smiley
1302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: X33 car, should it have black door sills? on: September 11, 2013, 09:19:25 PM
Is your car a Rally Sport?   if so, I believe it should have black rockers.. (below the rocker moulding)...
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What is the quality of reproduction windshield and rear glass chrome moldings? on: September 11, 2013, 04:41:40 PM
I'd be surprised to see windshield and rear window mouldings scratched, dented or bent..   what from???   I'd think the typical *original/used* mouldings could be pretty easily polished to be much better and longer lasting than any reproduction (but, that said, I haven't done it on a Camaro, so...??)..
1304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay in DB ? on: September 11, 2013, 07:46:21 AM
I wonder if they even got it consistent or *right* in the factory... Smiley  ..    since there's no factory spec for it, and it will go on in various locations, and RS and std model grills are a bit different..  (take yours off and then see if you can put it back in the same location!  Smiley
1305  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Fisher Body manual for 1969 on: September 10, 2013, 04:53:04 PM
I found and purchased 'another' Fisher body manual from ebay, and a fellow Camaro enthusiast (John E) has sent me the relevant pages scanned from his manual to do me in the meantime.   Thanks John!   SmileyPS.  if anyone else needs these pages (6) it's very easy for me to forward what John sent me..
