1336  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wiring on: September 01, 2013, 09:04:14 PM
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..

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.

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.

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.
1346  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!

IMO, the *best material for the money* is to do what the new car manufacturers did (or do)...  they use a similar decision criteria ... to be 'good enough', but not waste $$....

thanks George...  explains why I've never seen those on my car, since I've never had my interior panels off the car, but then I've only owned it for 37 yrs (so far).. Smiley

I made a mis statement earlier when I said (about my car):   
"... all the stamped VINs matched, on the transmission, the hidden stamps, and the engine, but the stamping on the engine wasn't as deep as the others (being on cast iron) nor as deep as it appeared to be on this car..."

I looked again, and the 'hidden VINs' under the cowl and under the heater housing do NOT begin with the '1', instead start with the '9' digit, whereas the Transmission and engine vin stampings begin with '1 9 ..'.   Other than the existence or missing of the leading 1 digit, the stamps appeared identical...

Per an April 2013 report....
"In total, the Z/28 weighs 300 lbs. less than the mighty ZL1, or about 3,820 lbs.
This puts it at 40 lbs. lighter than a Camaro SS with a manual transmission
and 200 lbs. heavier than the recently (and sadly) discontinued Ford Mustang Boss 302,,:
