I believe any of the GM 15" trim rings will fit.   The trim rings used on Monte Carlos from '70 thru '77 actually have the same appearance, although the retention method is diffeerent...

Bulllitt man..  Smiley,

I went to the garage at midnight and checked for you.    My two long hangars only had the two diagonal holes.  They are either the originals, OR I replaced them witih GM parts around 1975 (too long ago, and I don't really remember but I did buy new muffler and pipes from GM at that time; the car hasn't been out of my garage since 1980, although I'm now in the process of disassembling and cleaning the parts for reassembly (which is why it's a bit easier to check these).   My parts each have an 'Lo' on them (on the long metal strap portion), and a small '5' on the part that clamps to the pipe.   One of them still had a piece of the paper PN on it.  with the number 930087' (all I could read - it might should have a 3 in front of it?)..

the other two hangars actually had stamped GM part numbers on them.   3964858  and 3965633,  with an M and 3 also stamped.  Some of them had rubber which had 'white sections' in it (from the tires I suppose)..

you know..  it's possible that the only thing that happened was that the original cowl tag was *lost* during a paint job etc..  (Lots of people have removed the cowl tags and then regretted it later).. and if it was lost, it is also possible that an owner of the car, knowing less than the knowledgable camaro guys on THIS list, may have just found 'a tag', thinking he would fill the holes on the firewall/cowl... ??    Ie.   There may not be anything more sinister involved...?

There are urethane repair materials available, but I can't say how well they can be repaired, as the only repairs I've noticed were the 'bad repair jobs'.. (but of course, it it was repaired perfectly, I would not have noticed..).. Smiley

Thanks John.  I thought that might be it, but I really don't feel the '69 design is as safe/secure as the '68 unit, which was why I kept the '68 bumper jack. 

I'm curious if anyone else feels the same way, to the extent that they will keep a '68 (bumper portion only) along with the original jack in their trunk?  Smiley

a very good summary of he differences, Mark...   
2303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Bumper and jack differences - 68 to 69 on: July 18, 2012, 10:36:43 AM
Way back when...  75/76 time frame, I traded my '68 Z28 to a fella for his 69 Z28/RS.   At that time, I recall checking the bumper jacks (both had the originals), but I liked the '68 bumper jack best, because it had the pin which registered into the hole in the bumper and seemed safer / better to me.   

I'm wondering now, do ALL '69 bumpers (rear) have the registration hole in the lower section for accepting the '68 jack? or was my bumper changed possibly before I obtained it in '75?   If all '69 bumpers have the registration hole, WHY did GM eliminate the pin from the jack??

I agree with Kelley..  if you think you might one day want to put on the SS hood, then find one soon...  I'm insure if those original hoods are dated, but I'd guess that they are..  so I'd recommend checking that out as well first..

But..  if you like the car as is, and the paint is good, and the cowl setup is nice, then I'd just look for a hood (low priority basis - meaning when you find the right one at the right price, but it and store it away), but I would not change the car.  It's a gorgeous car, and looking across the cowl hood, and seeing that flap open when you press the 'go pedal.. is a good thing..

That's a great looking car, Eddy.

I think the correct carburetor for your car is pretty readily available (used); which you will need to get rebuilt.  There are a number of reliable re-builders for the Rochester Quad carbs (generally the throttle shaft has to be re-bushed)..  I'd get the carburetor asap.. as you never know how long old used parts are going to be available.

the 'green' was a popular color on '70 Z28's...    Smiley
2307  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Looking for another decal project to consider on: July 10, 2012, 01:20:43 PM
OR the 'late year'  '69 small block emissions decal??   As I understand it, the one you just finished was replaced later in the year, thus is not appropriate for my September Z28?
2308  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69Z trim rings - late build car on: July 10, 2012, 01:03:53 PM
in the late '70's, for a short period of time, I ran 8" Corvette wheels and F60 BFG tires on my '69 Z28..  

I purchased new 8" wheels and trim rings from Chevrolet (local dealer in Huntsville, AL).    The trim rings I purchased were/are the 4-clip design, same as the earlier wheels, and same as which were on my Z28!

If these type of trim rings were deemed unsafe for 6", and 7" wide wheels, WHY weren't they also recalled (and NOT sold anew) for the 8" Corvette wheels???   (Note, I still have those 'almost new' Corvette trim rings, in the original boxes they were in when purchased).   Since the fronts scrubbed my inner fenders and actually damaged one of my wheel lip mouldings on my '69 Z28., the 8" wheels came off pretty soon after installing them;  I put the 8" trim rings back in their original boxes and kept them..  I probably have the receipt somewhere for when I purchased them in the late '70's...

Does anyone here plan to attend the Classic Chevy Show in Nashville this coming weekend?   It's open to all Camaros and might be sponsored by Ecklers??

and my 09C Z car had the 4-clip trim rings when I purchased it in '76..  on the original wheels....?
