Thanks Marty...  Yes, adding a little 'warmth' to the old plastic part might help..   Smiley

I believe FW was a Monte Carlo code, and many of them have been used on Camaro's over the years... might be a fractional inch difference in offset from the YH?   I can measure the offset on one of my YH's tonight if you need (tired is dismounted so should be easy).. Smiley

I'm not sure what the '2 notch' term refers to..    a photo (or two) might help..  Smiley

thanks John,  that's what I've always thought...  I'll have to ask him why he thought they were different....  maybe he tried it with a damaged cap or wheel...?

Speaking of these caps...  A friend who owns a '67 Corvette told me the Corvette 'disk brake' center caps would not work on any other Ralley wheels.   I've also had people tell me that the derby caps were different over the period of time Chevy used them.   I've always thought that 'derby caps were 'derby caps'.. and 'disk brake caps' were 'disk brake caps' (ie. 67)...   Can someone clarify this point for me?

I don't want to destroy them, so I was going to find 'another way' if it was not possible to reuse..  sounds like a couple of your guys have done so, so I'm going to try it..    it sorta looks like a little 'ball and socket' on the back....I wasn't sure if I should pull from the front, or push from the back....?

thanks for all the comments...  giving me courage.  Smiley

I'm trying to 'non-destructively' remove parts from my inner fenders for cleaning.  Pictured are the original clips for retaining the wiring harness and vacuum hoses along the drivers side inner fender.   Is it possible to remove these without damage for reinstallation?

Daniel,

Yes, that was a 'kick panel' fastener, NOT the A pillar ....  OOOPS!   Smiley

Marty:  Yes, it could be an A...   appears the same as yours, and yours is clearly an 'A'  ..  I couldn't see it that well on my fasteners.. but obviously the same head marking..

2304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: REAL nice Gold Z/28 on eBay, Cowl Tag Correct? on: February 18, 2012, 02:10:00 PM
From all the 'wrong' items on that car, restampings, etc... I agree with the poster from the earlier thread, wihch basically questioned *everything* on the car..  in fact, that car, although Yes, it's very *pretty*, could even be a complete *klone* built from 'new' parts and restampings...??
Has anyone ever tallied up a complete camaro built from the repro panels and parts?   Can someone do that, and throw in a few 'restamped' mechanical parts, a 'repro' cowl tag, and then try to make $$ on the deal by passing it off as a restpred 'real car' ??

You asked about 'other' Phillips screws, so I took a quick look while checking out the glovebox screws, and found these:
1)  End of dash pad - rounded head, dark phosphate phillips - no apparent washer, but I didn't remove the screw...  (see photo)

2) End of dash - rounded headed dark phosphate phillips with washer - I didn't remove it so don't know if it is captive washer or not ..(see photo)

3)  A-pillar trim - light colored flat head phillips (again, I didn't remove the screw).. see photo.

Marty,

I examined some of the screws and fasteners this morning that you requested.
1)  The cowl vent screws (4 of them) are all identical (1/4" head, with 5/8" captive washer, w/ head marking the same as the prev photo showed - 2 concentric circles with 'delta' symbol inside.  Screw threads are 1/2" long.   Yes, it appears Dave's fasteners are the same as mine.
2)  The screws - also in the cowl vent panel - which retain the squirter hard lines, are also identical.  1/4 hex with a small shoulder, 1/4" long threads..   both are identical on my car and do not have any head marking).
3)  I removed one of the retainer screws from the glove compartment box.   It is 1/2" long, rounded head phillips , with an apparent dark phosphate coloring.  (photos attached).

Steve,  If your snorkel is the same as 'original', and you want to sell it..  I'm interested..

Kevin:   I measured the vent tube diameter of my A/C...   it is 1 inch in diameter....
2308  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: February 17, 2012, 02:15:06 PM
The head marking appeared to be 2 concentric circles with some kind of 'delta' symbol inside it..?  but my vision these days is about as bad as my cameras.. Smiley

I will check on the glove compartment screws tonight and let you know...  I am thinking that is a phillips, but am unsure til I check...
2309  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: ZL2 Flat Bottom AC Base on: February 17, 2012, 02:10:57 PM
It's interesting that you mention 'cut off snorkel'..  Mine has that (was cut off about an inch away from the housing) when I bought it in '76.   In '76, Z28's with cowl were so 'rare' (unlike today), I thought that it might have been 'original'..  Smiley     NOW I'm looking for a full snorkel so I can 'fix' that cut off one..  Smiley

Hi Bill,

I went down and took a photo; it appears to be a continuous 90 deg bend to me.    What is the significance of the 90 versus 2 45 deg bends??  My car is an 09C (Sept 69).   This is the ac that was on the car in '76 when I purchased it..  didn't appear to have been added on (all original components).. so I believe it is original to the car...
