631  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67/68 vs. 69 Rear Spoiler on: February 16, 2010, 10:16:48 PM
  After much research I have come to the conclusion that what I have is a GM NOS(in box) '68 spoiler #3916633.  I found the answer to my own question above, 59 in. for the '68 vs. 61 in. for the '69.  Thanks for your help guys!

Can someone tell me the difference in width of the rear 1/4's ?
633  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67/68 vs. 69 Rear Spoiler on: February 13, 2010, 10:25:37 PM
  I recently read in Motorbooks  Camaro Restoration Guide that a '69 Rear Spoiler will not work on a '67 Camaro, is this correct?
634  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to buy "correct appearing" ball joints? on: January 09, 2010, 12:22:21 AM
 On my '67 Upper Ball Joints I used 5/16 in. Button Head bolt(Readily available locally).  Then filled the Hex indent. with Bondo and hand painted it with Cast Blast.  Looks good.  I've attached a photo.
635  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Quarter panel stampings on: December 13, 2009, 12:03:22 AM
  What year car are you referring to?   You prabably are looking at Date cades.   The codes are stamped into metal approx. 1/8 in. tall letters, should be a letter (probably R), a space and a 2 digit #(refers to week of build).  My 11A -66 build '67(approx. week 44) has a T 43 trunk lid, a H 43 right door. and a H 42 left door.   The rear quarters have been reskinned,(before I got the car) so sorry I can't help you there.  Kurt gave me the info.(probably- R ##)
636  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early 67 Trunk Date code on: November 25, 2009, 02:17:55 PM
I got to look at the date code on my original trunk lid today(it has been in storage) the code is T 43.   Some time back I had posted the doors, they are Rt. H 43, and Lft. H 42.   I also found a code stamped in to the outside Pass. side of my Sub-frame when cleaning it up.  I now believe that might also be a Date code, I believe it is I 42.  this stamp is the same size as other Date codes I have found. There is also a larger(1/4")  O R stamped by this code.  Is this probably a Date code?   It is approx. 9" from the rear of the Sub-frame, approx. the middle of the outside of the frame.   Thanks for any input.
637  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Early '67 Sub-frame date code? on: November 20, 2009, 11:54:35 PM
  It's stamped into the steel.   The O R is 1/4" letters, and the 142 (or maybe I 42) is 1/8" letters.   If it's I 42, it is very similar to other date codes I have found on the car.  The doors are H 42 and H 43.
638  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Restoring Early '67 Sub-frame on: November 11, 2009, 11:04:57 PM
  Just thought I'd come on and post some pictures of how my Sub-frame restoration is going.   Doing it myself with the help of a couple talented friends.  I got it sandblased 2 weeks ago finally, we have had a lot of rain here kind of held up progress.  Then took it to my brother-in-law who is a professional welder for some repairs.   The 4 rear mount holes were rusted, so I got a kit from Rick's that consisted of 4 washers, he welded those in.  Then there was a like rusted through crack under the drivers side of the Radiator.  He cut out a like 2" X 4" section and welded in NEW correct guage.   And then, in the front center there is a like 9" long brace that somehow got "crunched in", he heated and straightened that.  We did some other minor repairs, and it's lookin' good.  The whole thing is sprayed ACE Rust Stop Satin Black, looks nice. Wink
639  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early '67 Sub-frame date code? on: October 31, 2009, 10:46:40 PM
   I have been cleaning up my Early '67 Sub-frame, (no holes) in front horns.   I found some sort of a code, (maybe just partial) on the ouside of Pass. side frame rail.   I think it might be a Date code???  I am attaching a sketch of what it looks like, as I don't know if I can get a clear enough picture.  Any ideas???
640  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring Inside Raer View Mirror on: October 31, 2009, 12:07:28 AM
  Mine was still pretty pliable.  I ran a small flat screwdriver around the edge of the glass.  VERY CAREFULLY.  I started across the bottom and worked my way up the sides. There is only a small lip there.  Once you are most of the way up the sides, you will be able to just pull the top out. I didn't try to take the Gray rubber out of the housing.  I never found a way to do that, and in the end, I didn't have to.  To put it back together I just did the reverse, using a Popsickle stick so as not to scratch the Glass.  I am attaching a photo of finished project.(Not the best color)
641  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Standard Grille on: October 29, 2009, 12:02:01 AM
 I "POP" riveted(3/16" alum.) the Grille together(correctly per your advice).  Then used a Dremel tool and ground down the "broke off nail" flush, then mixed up a little JB Weld and smoothed off the head.  Then I sanded it with my Dremel tool.  Then painted it by hand with a small Hobby Camel hair brush with a Bright Silver.  Looks almost original.  Looks nicer than screws and nuts.  Thanks for your help and advice!
642  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring Inside Raer View Mirror on: October 28, 2009, 11:52:57 PM
   The original Gray rubber or vinyl, whatever it is cleaned up nice, I left it in.
643  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring Inside Raer View Mirror on: October 26, 2009, 02:19:46 PM
  Thanks for the info. Guys!   I got hold of Paragon, they only stocked the Glass for '67 'Vette, but I took the chance that they were the same.  They are the same, I recieved the glass today, it's in and looks GREAT !   Just wanted to Thank you guys that helped.
644  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: production run numbers on: October 23, 2009, 12:44:39 AM
 I have an earlier run 11A (66) Los. Coupe.  Right door is H 43, left door H 42.   I believe 11A would be about week 44, so mine are much closer.
645  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Original 67 Block on: October 23, 2009, 12:35:03 AM
   If I read your report on 67 Engine pad stampings correctly, mostly only Z/28 and SS 350 Blocks recieved a partial VIN.  Is that correct?  I am pretty sure I have the original engine, but became a little alarmed when I started reading about a partial VIN, and mine doesn't have one.   My car is an 11A built LOS stadard V8 coupe, 327 2 bbl. w/Powerglide.   It has 3892627 Engine casting, the Engine pad reads V1026ME, if I am decoding this correctly.  It was built at the Flint,MI. plant- (V) 10 -(10 th mon.) 26 -(day) ME (327/210 hp w/Powerglide)  The Block has a casting date on it of J 17 6, I decode as (Oct. 17 -66).  Is this correct?  Thanks!
