I would *THINK* in any judging for originality, that original GM parts would score considerably higher than ANY replacement/reproduction part, such as Gardners....

'tree huggers' don't PASS the laws.. our government does, and WE let them.   If we make as much noise as the few tree huggers, we can keep this crap to a minimum... Most of the environmental laws and regs are born in ignorance.... and allowed to exist due to apathy.

they would build their customer whatever the customer wanted... if it could be bolted or sprayed on *S*

I still have some old car mags from '68 or so, describing/testing the Baldwin Motion Camaro, I still remember reading their 0-60 times and being disbelieving.. Smiley
979  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another ebay claim on: June 12, 2013, 10:55:17 PM
well.. no one is perfect..   but some imperfections are just more easily seen... Smiley

The backdrop of some of the photos appeared to be taken in 'Art's Corvette World' in Bowling Green, KY.. (right in front of the NCM), although the location for the seller appeared to be in Canada...?

That's  a factory balancer...  '67 or '68?

For those of us who don't know about a 'Norwood Reunion', can you elaborate?   My '69 hugger orange/black Z28/RS also has the original 'Fisher' paint, although some parts of the Norwood Assembly Paint (front clip) have been resprayed.
982  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Up to date Ebay statistical results on: June 08, 2013, 04:48:07 PM
This info is as current as you can get:  With my tongue tucked firmly in my cheek, I just counted all ebay postings for sale, which have the following in their description:

(Fits 69 Camaro Z28)

after performing ultra precise calculation, it's determined that 92.68% of all ebay postings will *fit* your 69 Z28....  Smiley

Photoshop or any similar image editing program should let you import any photo of a Camaro and then do all the 'color change' and scheme things you want to see.... Smiley

Re your colors:  Silver and gray....   Have you considered a light silver main paint, fading to the darker color below the belt like break (as foose does a lot).. and then possibly adding the dark charcoal stripes in the light silver above?   The stripes could be the Z stripes, SS stripes, or even the '70 Boss stripe' approach... Smiley

It *appears* the same as the fan in my original 837 alternator in the photo...
985  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Lacquer Vs. Enamel for the Camaro on: June 03, 2013, 08:26:15 AM
In 1977 model year, Chevrolet still used lacquer; by 1981 my, they'd switched to enamels ( I suspect? the Corvette was the last model to change, which happened June of 1981 when Corvette production was moved to Bowling Green from St Louis)....  that's as close as I can narrow it down to...
986  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: did DZ block have screen in valley like in the pic from the factory? on: May 30, 2013, 09:50:56 PM
I always deburr casting flash in the drainbacks and paint the interior cast surfaces...

If you clean your block well, you can use 'rustoleum' (buy a quart size can and brush it on)..  I like black, as it will show 'silvery' on disassembly if there's every been metal in the oil...
987  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 Crank Pulley not working on 350 LT1 on: May 28, 2013, 02:29:08 PM
Your other pulleys (alternator, WP, smog) should line up with the outermost crank groove (see John Z's post), so actually your crank pulley is too far away from your engine for that to happen... and *the crank pulley* needs to go back towards the engine (per the photos)..  Only your PS pulley should line up with the groove closest to the engine.   

I'd suggest making sure your outer groove of the crank pulley first lines up with the water pump pulley, and then make everything else lines up appropriately after that.
988  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 Crank Pulley not working on 350 LT1 on: May 28, 2013, 11:22:07 AM
And there is also the possibility that the harmonic damper is not fully seated on the crankshaft...?
989  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z 302 pulley finishes on: May 27, 2013, 11:29:13 PM
weren't some smog pulleys 'phosphated'?   I think Jerry's book also says that...??   


My 06A Z28 smog pulley is phosphated, its original
Thanks.  Smiley   I'm unsure why they did them two ways (two suppliers)?  but I thought I'd seen a number of them phosphated (although all the other pulleys were painted).

Ed,
I was in the Knoxville, TN area this weekend, so I called the number and spoke to the seller.  He is actually in Knox County, KY, so I was not able to visit or photo the tags, nor would he tell me the VIN.   
He told me he has only the Trim Tag and the VIN plate from the dash, that he took from a car long ago (car now long gone).. don't they all say that? 
He wants $3000 for the tags, and informed me that use of these tags on a dynacorn body or another body would increase the value of the restored car by 3X.

PS. You do have the BDY No from the ad, so maybe with that you can track what happens to it in the future..

Gary
