His post on TC was sorta confusing as to which one he believed to be correct; his first photo was the one with the 'internally threaded' compression fitting and the last two photos he posted showed an externally threaded compression fitting.  
Steve:  You're saying that you agree with Dave that his 'first photo' shows the correct 'internally threaded' compression fitting?

Just to add some 'brightness' to this thread, it seems to be a great place to follow thru on my promise to Steve S. (PaceMe) to post his photo here for all to see.. Smiley     Here he's shown posed with a very original (I think?).. '67 little old lady owned, one owner, original, never-smoked-in, but slightly-dusty SSRS...  oh.. and I should add 'back yard find' to make this more interesting to the barn find folks.. Smiley

PS.   It was great meeting you at Carlisle (finally) and getting to discuss some of this stuff personally, and thanks for the loaner badge.. Smiley ..    Also great to meet with Chick, TMR Eddie Sells, Skip Locaste?, Tom Flanagan (a great '69 yellow-blk Z28), and a few more whose names are escaping me right now while at Carlisle.

Sorry DW....   Sad  ..  that was it from me on '68...

63  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Grill emblem placement for a 1969 Z/28 RS vs Standard on: June 23, 2014, 01:26:16 PM
I recall from when I purchased my 69 Z28/RS in 1976, the emblem location 'didn't look right' to me, and I moved it..  I was basing that decision on the location of the emblem on my '68 Z28 (non RS) car I'd traded for the '69.. but I had no doc/manual to go by..   it was purely by 'look' to me, but I'd been around original Z28's since 1968, but not many RS models.

I *think* the various locations of the Z28 emblem on an RS grill comes from the fact that the RS grill 'seems more narrow' than the std grill to the eye, and maybe the 'black color' of it?, and the factory assembly manual instructions shows the 'std' grill, and doesn't address the RS grill location...


FYI 68's didnt have Z emblems in the grill. Tongue

you're right DW.. Smiley   I typed too fast and had a brain fart.. Smiley   

To clarify... " I was basing my conclusion that my RS Z28 grill emblem placement as being 'wrong' on being around MANY non-RS 69 Z28's in the past... Smiley   "

Just giving you a hard time..   Grin

No hard time taken.  I appreciate your correcting my post...  (but you should know that it could turn into an almost full time job!).. Smiley

John,

Thank you very much.. Smiley

I'd read your description previously, but I guess I didn't associate that phosphating process described with the 'hard black' coating on the bottom of my floor... It's amazing that it lasted so well so long if that's what it is..

Was the full floor bottom 'primed' in the priming booth?  or only the top and sides...?   Large portions of my floor only show the 'black' (apparently phosphate coating from what you guys are explaining to me).. Smiley

396/375 engine compartment and '70 LT1 engine compartments....
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 23, 2014, 11:14:23 AM
a few more photos from Frederick...
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 23, 2014, 11:09:16 AM
and more...  including George (NoYenko) trunk..    I was admiring his very nice trunk mat which looked to be either NOS or an outstanding repro?  (I wish I could find a source for one like it).. Smiley

It was great to meet George NoYenko, see his beautiful blue/white 396 powered coupe and talk with him..   finding out from him the reason for his 'NoYenko' CRG name (a great story). Smiley   
George:  Let us know how you did on the points when you find out...    your car and your photo book are both great!

A few more.. including Mike (DuskBlueZ)'s car...

A few photos from Frederick nationals (last Friday)... as I left for Carlisle early Sat morning...  the ones I'm posting are chosen because they came out 'small enough' (below 150 Kb) after running Light Image Digitizer the first time.. Smiley
I'll do some more later as I have time..   it seems the single photo limit has been raised to 200kb, but the total size limit is still 500kb.   4 photos at 200Kb would be 800kb.. I sure wish it worked that way.. Smiley
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 23, 2014, 11:01:38 AM
I'll post some pix later..  after I get caught up from 4 days being away.. Smiley   Maybe some others will post also.. Smiley
I'm trying.... hitting the 500Kb limit... Sad

Nice story Danny. Thanks. I was looking at buying a '66 GTO with a 455 in it as my first car. My dad didn't like the car and told me "Why don't you get something cool like a Z/28?" How could I disappoint him?  Grin

As usual.. Dads lead their sons in the best direction for them.... Smiley

I think *this* is the Cortez Silver Z28/RS that you are referring to at the nationals....  and I agree that the Z28 emblem seems a bit *too centered* in the grill.   The article you reference has the Z28 emblem which 'seems' better to me (but this is a question that seems to have no 'documented' answer, as I haven't been able to find it in any GM documents (for the RS), and Z28 emblems on RS grills seem to get placed all over the place..
