when I replaced the original carpet in my '69Z28, under the carpet, I found a brand new key, with the numbered knockout intact.   It was directly under the steering wheel..  I tried it in the ignition, it fit/worked perfectly.. Smiley
On a '57 BelAir, I found a factory 'paint sock' under the carpet.. it had the same blue color dripped down the side as my car.  A 'paint sock was used on the paint cup to prevent dripping onto the car.  (In '57, the cars were painted manually...
It almost seems that the factory worked intended to put something unique from the factory under all the carpets.. Smiley

maybe it means 'Road and Track'?  is it a dodge in disguise? *G*

Nice setup JohnZ!    Smiley

Where does one find those neat little hose adapters?   or did you have to make them yourself?  Smiley

The chambered pipes I purchased have the standard GM 'paper labels' wrapped around the pipes (with Part numbers).. the PN's are not stamped into the pipes (to my knowledge)..

I thought color override was simply ordering combinatio nof exterior color and interior color that was NOT in the list of combination recommended.  id.      red interior in a blue car?   or similar....  I think it would take lots more to order an interior, or a paint, that was not available on the model you were ordering...

I would guess that the vinyl would weigh more than whatever metal weight might be removed by acid dipping, but the 'recognition factor might be a slight advantage. . but they could have *paiinted* their roof flat black and achieved the same goal if that was it..
2182  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Wheels used on Trans-Am Camaros on: March 31, 2012, 01:13:03 PM
I fail to see where a 'vinyl roof' would be an advantage in racing (or any other venue).... so I'm still at a loss.  The vinyl roof covering would be additional drag (in an aerodynamic sense)..

I'm sory, SA.. but I didn't follow the 'vinyl roof' comment on the '69's in your above post.. . Care to explain?

Mine does, format  19Nxxxxxx,  same on the trans as on the side of the block above the Oil Filter...

If anyone with an early '69 Z28 is interested, I have an NOS set of chambered pipes, stored indoors since purchase from GM in '76.   I found out my car is too late to have had them...  I'm open to any interesting trades for other parts, as it makes no sense for me to keep them longer.

2186  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Stupid Question - What does Sway Bar Rubber Sleeve/Clamp do? on: March 28, 2012, 12:05:22 AM
Isn't it likely that they were phosphated after manufacture, shipped to the assembly plant, then painted black after assembly onto the subframe?

My 09C Z28 (engine assembled Aug 28) has a H69 *Aug* Fan....

The stamp looks real....   engine appears to need a rebuild prior to use, but to be certain you need to disassemble and take to a machine shop to have it thorughly checked.   In the current assembled state you can check if std bore or *larger*, and you can check the cylinder ridge to see how worn it is in the cylinders.   Generally you should probably consider it to need a minimal boring, and you'll be very lucky if you don't.    that means new pistons, and I also align bore (when it's an unknown engine), and check the crank journals.   Up to 10 thousandths doesn't bother me either...
(make sure if they do a clean up on the deck, that they stop short of the stamp pad; that stamp looks great so you wouldn't want to disturb it)..

Put an LS1 in it, then you have removed the issue, and have a stronger engine as well *S*

In 1969, for Chevelles, the last production date was the 3nd of June... I know becuase I was planning to order one, and missed the date by a few days..  I think the end of June was *normal* changeover time during those years for all models.  Back then the new cars were introduced generally in September...  of course, the end of '69 Camaro production (and Corvettes also) was very different in '69 for several reasons...
