1591  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?
1593  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....
1594  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: maintaining doors... on: October 06, 2013, 01:35:49 PM
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.

Mine are the same John; but when I disassembled the door internals, I also found spots of overspray on the glass tracks and door latch mechanism, which made me think all the door internals (minus the door glass itself and the weatherstrip) were also installed prior to painting the door.   Has your door ever been apart to see totally clean latches and glass tracks, or do you have documentation that prescribes how Fisher did the assemblies in late '69??   I had previously believed my car had original paint from the firewall back, but if Fisher didn't get overspray on my door internals, then that door has had some 'touchup' prior to my purchase in 1976...??
1596  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z28 with Factory Cross Ram on: October 05, 2013, 11:44:34 AM
67 Z28s came with, or could be had with, headers in the trunk from the factory, but not sure if the 'cross ram 2x4bbl intake' ever could be had that way.   I've always believed that to be an OTC part only...
1597  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 DZ BLOCK OR NOT... on: October 05, 2013, 11:41:30 AM
CE blocks were *stamped* with CEyxnnnnnn     as warranty replacement engines.   A 'blank' (never stamped) block would be one bought across the counter.  If it has a '69 date on it, and has the Z28 internals, etc.. it could be worth quite a bit to the right person.    Note:  There's another thread on this site dealing with a 'non standard' block casting that were sometimes used, so if it's one of those cast blocks, might be a bit more limited.   What is the casting number, the casting date, etc.  and which internals are with it?
1598  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / VIN on engine problem on: October 05, 2013, 11:08:20 AM
One of those previous owners is having a memory lapse..  Smiley
1599  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DZ302 scam block? on: October 05, 2013, 11:06:52 AM
An unstamped, '69 yr block, should be very valuable to someone with a Z28 who is missing his original block, DEPENDING on the casting date...  Smiley
1600  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z28 with Factory Cross Ram on: October 05, 2013, 10:03:53 AM
The casting date on the block and the pad date are on the same day , that can't be
possible.

I can't say about that particular engine, but it IS possible.. if the casting is done early in the day, and the assembly later in the day (confirmed by GM engineers).  I've owned (for over 35 yrs)  an original 57 BelAir with born-with 283/2bbl which has the same date for casting and assembly.   When I rebuilt it in the 90's, none of the fasteners had ever been removed from the engine...

As someone posted earlier, every state issued VIN I've ever seen was identified as such...

Let your wife help you..  and both of you will get some satisfaction from a 'job well done'.  Smiley
1603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Re-upholstering '67 front seats on: October 04, 2013, 07:51:33 AM
There is a big difference (mostly measured in self satisfaction) between:
1)   'that' is a good job and looks nice.....
and 2)   'that' is a good job and looks nice,  AND I DID IT... '..  Smiley
1604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 camaro vin location on: October 03, 2013, 09:33:55 PM
For curiousity's sake, it would be interesting to see the *real* VIN, but regardless of what it was, there's NO way I'd purchase such a vehicle....
1605  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: First attempt at Zinc Plating on: October 03, 2013, 08:59:28 PM
that's not bad Darrel..     How much is your $$ and time investment so far?  Smiley
