1591  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vietnam Lost Films worth seeing.... on: September 27, 2013, 11:37:16 AM
Hi Darrell,

I was only in Texas during basic training..   Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Mar-May '68...  Smiley
The Azure '69 Z28 was in Huntsville, AL in the late '70's when I saw it sitting in a carport; stayed there for a few years, then disappeared.   I WISH I'd followed up more often than I did..

Anyone care to post a pic of the final product?  As many have already said thank you and thank your wife as well. 

I'm not sure if Steve or Phillip are online, so I took a couple of photos of the one I got from Steve this past weekend...  attached..
(Steve may post much better pix later -  this one was right out of the dryer... Smiley
1593  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Need paintcode for 67 CC ermine white... on: September 27, 2013, 09:29:06 AM
I totally concur with Sauron's statement...   "Not sure why you want to use BC/CC when shooting a solid color. If additional UV protection is preferred, you can cocktail the last coat/coats of Concept with clear."

This approach will give you the best looking paint possible IMO... Smiley

I know this is not camaro related..... but I know some of you were in the" Nam" during 1965 thru 1974. And for you younger guys, you can see what  these brave men had to endure. Vietnam Lost Films. The Beginnings ( 1964 - 1965 ) 1/6  Terry P. S. How many times have we heard of the servicemen coming home and buying a camaro...
and many never came home..   and I heard of many, and know of at least one '69 Z28 which sat in his parents carport for many years.... in the last '70's, still waiting for the return that never happened....  It was a gorgeous azure with black vinyl top car..  that was one of the first Z28's I'd ever seen with the smog still intact, and I have no idea now what happened to it..   and forgive me for this one..  but in October of '69, while I was in the USAF, I ordered a lime green roadrunner HT... and I don't know where it is now either.  Smiley
1595  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 26, 2013, 12:14:40 PM
What 'T3' means..   *might* have to do with the filament size..  but I cannot find any confirmation..?
1596  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO'S LEFT ON THE ROAD on: September 26, 2013, 07:54:44 AM
The noted damage is interesting, wonder if the broken motor mount had anything to do with putting the car in the water.
Mike
Didn't the broken engine mount issue sometimes cause the throttle to stick open, hence the recall to fit interlocking mounts?
Yes, a broken LHS motor mount *could* cause the accelerator to jam up (I had it happen to me with my dad's '63 Impala.. Smiley ...   but I doubt that would have been an issue with the car less than 2 yrs old?  and I don't believe it had a HP engine in it...  the mount could have broken as a result of hitting the water at speed...
1597  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69Z rear ratios on: September 25, 2013, 10:31:47 PM
Yes, it's possible..  although not the std ration (3.73 is std).   Posi was an option, and not mandatory for Z28s or any other model I don't believe...  although I'd bet 99% of Z28's had Posi...   3.55 would be good for the highway, but would likely be difficult around town given the 302 characteristics...
1598  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 25, 2013, 10:17:39 PM
I can't believe I went downstairs to the garage to check this.   Smiley  I think I have a serious case of Camaroitis....

the three I have with correct T3 markings are a C, a J, and a K....
1599  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: am/fm radio repair on: September 25, 2013, 09:33:30 PM
No offense to Springsteen, but more than likely it would be THIS or THIS ONE.
Son, you're in a heap of trouble playing that loud music!  Cool

....Anybody here ever have American flag pants? I found a picture of me wearing mine. I'll have to dig it out and post it. I think it was even 1969 too.

Please don't!!  Smiley     Those days are best left WAAAY behind us..  *L*

thanks for the links Phillip.. .  Smiley
1601  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rotisserie on: September 25, 2013, 01:37:27 PM
If you are going that far (rotisserie frame off), then you should remove the subframe for restoring independently which also reduces the load on your rotisserie support.   Attach to the same points on the body that the subframe attaches to, and the large nutserts at the top of the firewall (for the fenders)..
1602  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 25, 2013, 01:32:19 PM
Thanks fellas, for the T3 lamp education ....   Smiley
as it turns out both the lamps I bought in Charlotte, and one of the ones on my car are correct for '69.. but no inked stamps on the back.. (I cleaned 'em too good).. 
1603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: am/fm radio repair on: September 25, 2013, 12:46:49 PM
We should have a contest..  so who can drive the MOST miles during that 17 m 03s version of InnaGaddaVida..  *G*
1604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 25, 2013, 11:56:10 AM
OK.   that's what I confused with a 'date code'..  the code in the glass.    The two I bought in Charlotte, and the one I already had on my car had differing 'glass codes'..  and no stamped codes on back (already cleaned off I suppose)..
1605  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Which crossflow/transverse muffler on BBC on: September 25, 2013, 11:32:57 AM
I
I'm the one who entered 'Other'. My system was made in the late 80's and is SS and uses a cross flow muffler with stock sizes and exits.
I don't know vendor though.   Sad  The sound is nice actually with a comfortable deep tone to it and not loud.

Mike


I also entered 'other' since there was not an entry option for 'stock gm'...  small block 302 here...
