that Klean Strip product seems to be in a 'ready to use' form..    is that correct Mike?   The products I've used, Dupont MetalPrep or Jassco, are in a more concentrate form, even though more expensive to purchase, which allows some flexibility in dilution and use.

Smiley  If it IS a 302...  I bet it runs great with that PG automatic.. Smiley

Pictured are photos of a '70-1/2 Z28 that I owned in the early 80's..  I really liked driving it as it handled better than first gens (IMO).. Smiley     but one winter, while I was in the process of building a large garage building, we had a big snow (for us).. and seeing the car covered in snow prompted me to sell it to a young fella who came by and asked about buying it (at the right time).. wish I hadn't done it now.. Smiley

I like to treat bare stripped metal with 'Dupont metalprep' or a similar product, and then rinse, dry, and prime.

OKAY!    Smiley    We'll call that a feature and try to stay away from it.. Smiley

OK..  I found a bit more.   a #1 letter, but only the first page have I found so far..  posted here...
1703  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' 302 CE numbers on: February 09, 2013, 05:41:04 PM
Byron,
I found part of it, #2 letter...  haven't found #1 yet, if there is a #1...  it's a photograph of the letter, re-jpged to fit in the requirements here; hopefully it is legible.  It is dated 14Aug1967 (tonawonda)..
I'm sure there was another letter, because this one doesn't have all the information I recall on it....
1704  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Template for 69 Deluxe door emblem? on: February 09, 2013, 04:11:41 PM
My door panels have never been off (to my knowledge) and I do not know how the original panel factory mounted that emblem, but for your repro panels, surely the repro company sent you clips or glue or ??  some mechanism or instruction for how to mount the emblem/etc?

I sent you a photo of my drivers side front door panel and emblem (which also has remote mirror control on it).   I dont' think there is a camaro emblem on the rear side panel.  I don't see any noticeable differences in the front and rear window cranks.

PS.  have you looked on the backside of the repro door panels? Maybe there are markings, or depressions, showing where the panel should be pierced for the various items that mount to it??

from what I've heard via the weather channel and news reports today, eastern L.I. got the brunt of the snow, but it sounds like you're not letting a little 'nemo' defeat you..  Smiley
1706  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Build Quality in the Muscle Car Era on: February 09, 2013, 04:00:31 PM
Hey..  It isn't fair to blame the factory that built the car 40 yrs ago for crap that wasn't done correctly by the present owner/restorer.. Smiley
1707  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: question for Kurt re Photo Limitations? on: February 09, 2013, 03:58:36 PM
Thanks,  I was under the belief it was 500Kb/post...

Any explanation for why it would not allow me to repost the message with fewer/smaller attachments instead of telling it I had already submitted the post (when I actually had not successfully done so?)..??
1708  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / question for Kurt re Photo Limitations? on: February 09, 2013, 11:32:33 AM
Kurt,
there's something I'm not understanding or doing correctly re the photo posting guidelines.  Twice recently, I've tried to respond to someone's questions with a response containing 3 or more photos, each of which was less than 150KB, with the total less than 500KB.   Is this a correct intrepretation?   On those occasions, when I tried to post, I received a response that the attachments were too large or exceeded limitations, so I hit 'back' and attached new images which I knew were smaller... and when I tried to post that response, I received a message that the post had already been made and that I must have hit 'post' twice... but after multiple times retrying, never succeeded in posting the reply.    Can you tell me what I'm doing incorrectly?  or is there an error in the CRG software?

Dean,  when I first traded for my 69 Z28 in '76, and knowing it was all original (based on it's condition and history at the time), when I inspected the pad, and found NO VIN stamp, but correct engine assembly stamp, I was *very confused*, becuase all the other Z28s I'd had and knew about up til that time had the VIN on the pad.   I went close to 10 yrs before I learned thru a car magazine ad, that 'late Norwood' cars had the VIN stamped into the cast surface above the oil filter boss.  Knowing the car was original, I NEVER considered 'stamping' the VIN in myself!   Instead, once I learned about the different stamping location, it only remained for me to pull the engine so I could *verify*, which I finally did in the late 80's and went to great extremes before I could even *detect* the stamping... special light, sunlight, enhanced high res photos, etc.   My point is, I think someone would ONLY stamp something into an original part IF they had strong suspicions already, that it was a 'fake'.. and the only wanted to make it a 'better fake'...   at least, that's MY opinion.

I really liked the orange/black RS-Z photos, Oaklyss.. maybe I'm prejudiced though?  Smiley  and the 'camaro parking lot' photo was super.. Smiley
