1531  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 1969 heater core removal w/ factory Air Conditioning... on: October 16, 2013, 10:19:19 AM
it's much easier (possible?) if the inner fender is out of the way... Smiley   PS.  I once traded a '68 Z28 that I really liked because the heater core was leaking and I didn't want to disassemble that part of the car..

Via the internet, this link provides instructions on replacement of the heater core

The link to Rick's (above) is for 1-1/8" kit...

I have a Raybestos kit (MK472) for a Delco MC (1” piston) that I purchased accidentally a few months ago (I needed a 1-1/8” kit).. which hasn’t been opened or used.   I’d be glad to sell it to you if you need it…  on the package it states:  ‘US assembled’.. no info on mfg of parts.    You can also find these via ebay as well…
1533  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 camaro cowl tag/vin decode on: October 16, 2013, 08:30:08 AM
The VIN corresponds to 'mid June' production; the production date on the tag is 06A, so that is fine.  The Body Number is almost 100,000 higher than 'uniform' distribution, but I suspect that *might* be possible for a customer ordered/SOLD car.. as they move up in the production cycle...  Someone else might have a better idea?  I didn't notice anything that would get my attention...   Why do you suspect this tag/vin combination??

I wonder if it was just a vendor thing.I know that there were 3 different rear bumper ends for a 57 chevy . They varied slightly cosmeticly but hard to notice.
The three '57 Chevy Bumper ends were 1) the production bumper end, 2) Service part #1, and 3) Service Part #3.   The service parts were incrementally more simple to make and thus less expensive to mfg as time went on.  by FAR the one preferred by restorers is the production bumper end, with the raised area on top, and the segmented 'black' below the backup light housing.

I'd call that medium metallic gray, rather than silver...  Smiley

I think I have an original magazine from '68 which had their ads and an article or two?    although I haven't looked at them in years..  Smiley   if it would do you any good, I could go look.  I have all my older magazines cataloged and grouped by years and type..
PS.  Does anyone want to buy a few hundred (or is it thousands) car magazines dating to the '67 or so timeframe??  HRM, PHR, CC, HPC, etc..  Smiley

Do you have a metal line or the original plastic type on your car?

Here's a link to a PPG color chart for '68 Camaros...
1542  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sand blasting... Chassis on: October 07, 2013, 11:06:36 PM
People have probably done it, but I'd bet they regretted it also.. Smiley  I would not recommend that.
Sand goes *everywhere* and is not controllable very precisely when you are sandblasting.   You can protect items by applying two layers of duct tape, but that would take you longer than disassembly probably.   We'll see if you get any positive responses on this. Smiley

Do you have photographs?
1544  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 coil bracket on: October 07, 2013, 09:49:09 PM
Last I read anything on the bracket was it wasn't correct, but some owners with late built cars have it. I have one of each and not sure which is correct until this is confirmed right or wrong. This is all based on the Z28 with ZL2 set up, but I think it would be the same for all that had the same air cleaner pan.
The ZL2 air cleaner pan is larger than the standard air cleaner....

Cars were not painted with glass installed. It makes no sense in painting procedure. They would have to mask the windows. Overspray on parts from poor masking is common during repaints. Many just papered off the windows and did not worry about overspray that the felts will hide when installed. Some don't even take the felts off. Big diifference in restoration painting and collision repairs.

I think it's obvious that the glass would not be installed, as that would have required additional tasks to clean up, but the small amount of paint that went thru the inner panel holes would not affect the 'back side' of the inner mechanisms.  it's too bad we don't have access to the Fisher body procedures used (for any year) as I doubt they changed this sort of thing over the years.

My question had to do with the guides, channels, door latch, etc.   There was paint on my door latch, and some on the back (interior) side of the guides/tracks (corresponding to the holes in the interior of the door, making it seem that the internals were installed prior to paint, so when the door inner side got painted (lightly), some of the paint went thru the holes to the internal parts.   There was NO overspray on the glass or the parts attached to the glass.
