1291  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 14, 2013, 10:27:16 PM
Thanks Steve,  That should give everyone a good comparison between 'flat bottom' and 'seamed bottom'.
Question:  is the seam on yours welded all the way around?  or ?

Yes, I thought it was blue as well...  it may be mostly the lights, but it does look like someone added a little blue to the silver mix.  *G*.. OR maybe the clear coat helps with that too?
and Thanks re the corvette.   I've only had that one 23 years... I repainted it lacquer about 16 yrs ago..

for the '68 manual, UPC 11-13  sheet A5 is on page 137, and UPC 11-13, sheet B5 is on pg 144 (pages hand numbered in my AIM copy)..  also in the downloadable one..

Was he looking for you?  Were you hiding behind the closed garage door?  *G*
1295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Timing Cover date codes on: September 13, 2013, 12:34:20 PM
I have one that is stamped '1   67' ..   which is obviously NOT Julian date (unless they worked on New years day?) *G*  but it *might* be for the first week of Jan...

Steve,

Can you take a photo of the full bottom from the bottom?  As a comparison to the flat bottom?
PS.  What did you mean by '4 spot' flame arrester?   first time I've heard that term....
1297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay in DB ? on: September 13, 2013, 10:20:11 AM
Obviously, the paint on that car is 'way over restored', and gorgeous, although not 'factory correct'..   but when I viewed the photos, the 'color' seemed 'blue' to me, as opposed to silver..   Note: my display is calibrated so that displayed colors are accurate typically.  That 'blueness' may have been in their lighting or their camera, but each time I look at it, it seem like a 'light blue tinted' silver.  (and I have a Cortez Silver '69 Corvette for comparison..)..  that car was photographed under fluorescent lights, which can tint towards the blue, so I've included one outside, and one inside of my car..

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)..

Steve,

mine has a flat bottom....  09C build.
1302  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?
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: First Ford Mustang sold to public story on: September 12, 2013, 08:32:52 PM
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?)..
1304  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
