1291  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Pilkington Classics glass thickness and quality ??? on: January 04, 2014, 10:05:44 PM
Thank you. That's good to know. The can put anything they want on it as long it is not visible.

By the way, is there a listing of these DOT codes so that I can decipher my glass when I get it?

                Thanks.....Dave
I'm considering replacing my windshield with a new Pilkington coded glass, and I'd love to see a photo of the markings they put on your windshield when you get it... Smiley

Now I'm intrigued as well.  I can only think of two possibilities for this wheel:
1) It's an early prototype built by the company that produced the wheels for Chevrolet?  What company was that?  Does anyone know?  Tin-top:  Do you know the history of this steering wheel?  where it came from and when?
2) The *other* possibility is that it's an attempt (not a bad one btw) by an unknown company attempting to mimic the great beauty and style of one of the many beautiful parts used on the '69 Camaro....  Smiley

Any other opinions??  Smiley   Ed?

Love that very light overspray of green on the cowl tag. Pretty nice car for sure. I see where the firewall inspection stamp looks to be somewhat more florescent than the others. I keep seeing these cars with the stamps pronounced, but everybody keeps saying they are under the cowl finish. And should only be BARELY seen. And whoever stamps them on top is wrong. This sure looks on top to me.... And so have the last 10 survivor cars I have seen. I think we better rethink that under paint theory. This one even has an extra "T". Hasn't anybody ever talked to a former inspector in the last 44 years?
  sixt9x33rs, time for you to pick up another one??   Grin Grin
.... Danny
PTB marks were stamped after paint (at the end of Fisher production as JohnZ has told us many times).  My car also has an extra 'T', and I think I've seen it on one additional original car.
PS.  This car is WAY beyond 'nice' or 'pretty nice'..  It seems to have been in a vacuum chamber for 44 yrs (ignoring the fact that the engine and some other items were rebuilt)..  it's very close to how they were showing in the showroom.  A bit of polish on that lacquer paint would make it perfect... Smiley   and doesn't that Rallye Green POP against the snow?  Smiley

I removed my original wheel and measured it the same way; slightly over 2.5" to the front face of the center, and almost 3" to the deepest side of the back.   16" diameter wheel.   What is the diameter of your wheel?
1295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Side Exhaust on my 69 on: January 03, 2014, 11:38:37 PM
Nah.. . the covers don't get that hot..   just try it without the covers, just the exhaust pipes.. and see how that feels!!  Smiley
1296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 rosewood Steering Wheel on: January 03, 2014, 11:36:00 PM
It's difficult to tell from the photos you included, but that wheel doesn't look like an original rosewood wheel for a '69 Camaro.  In fact, even the dish appears deeper?   Can you measure the dish so we can compare?   
1297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Disassembly of brake booster on: January 03, 2014, 11:28:26 PM
Already had it rebuilt and plated and disgusted with what happened. Friends seen it and wondered if it was done with Eastwood paint.
I have it in vice and going to see what happens.
Who did that for you bill?
1298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR on: January 02, 2014, 08:28:26 PM
Sure..  come on by! *G*..   another pair of hands is always welcome..  Smiley
1299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR on: January 02, 2014, 08:23:31 AM
so do you have the body back together after cleaning it?

body?    front clip?    Smiley    No, the front clip is still off, although my 'hesitation' to start reassembling is the only  thing holding that up..  that and lack of space in my garage to move big parts around.
1300  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Cross Ram Z in action - sorta - check er out on: January 01, 2014, 09:50:50 PM
I'd love to have heard it full bore..  getting a *double shot* (of his baby's love) .. Smiley  .. from those dual Holleys..  Smiley
It takes a LOT of horsepower and a lot of RPM to justify all that cfm... Smiley

I like his music too.. and he's obviously an afficionada... Smiley
Wanna buy my old Dual 1219 ?  Smiley
1301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: intake manifold date code on: January 01, 2014, 09:31:01 PM
Also very difficult to check during judging, Scott..  Smiley
If you have it off the engine, take a photo, and show the judges the photo. Smiley
1302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rick & His Yenko at Americarna LIVE Car Show on: January 01, 2014, 09:20:30 PM
Thanks for clarifying the issue with the Vega engine heating issue, JohnZ...  I *may* have heard that before in the latter days, but I heard so many others who owned those cars say the 'block warped'...  I never owned one or worked on one myself.  (My memory is OLD too) *G*
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR on: January 01, 2014, 08:55:45 PM
Gary is yours going to be on the road this spring?

Maybe...  with a 350 LT1 in it, to work out any 33 yr old bugs in the rest of the car, but the 302 probably will not be back together by then.  I still haven't decided which pistons to reassemble it with (compression wise).. the 12:1 Forgedtrues I ran  I'm probably going to use the original exhaust manifolds and stock exhausts when I put it back together (although I'm torn between that and headers also)..
1304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rick & His Yenko at Americarna LIVE Car Show on: January 01, 2014, 09:22:45 AM
.. and in the HOT states, as soon as the engine overheated one time, the engine *warped*.....
1305  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR on: January 01, 2014, 09:20:43 AM
Have a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!
Drive those cars!
