I guess I shouldn't say crooked, poor choice of words. It's at an ever-so-slight angle and narrow. Unlike the new prominent ones you buy today. In fact the 4 is THE MOST narrow of all the numbers and letter. Like it got stretched out as it was traveling down the curve of the knob. Easy to spot. Same with the 2, as it is the next skinniest.  
So I guess this 2 piece knob is for '69. Anybody have a part number? I am wondering if it fits chevelle, nova, firebird, el camino, or what it is specific to for model usage and years used...

  Compare the 2 and 4 in this modern knob pictured from Rick's. The right and left side of the 4 is WAY thinner on the original. D

Went to the semi-local swap meet at the Santa Rosa, CA Veterans hall last Sunday. About 25 minutes from me. Found a nice set of used Michelins all season Radials for my 15 X 7 wheels. With about 80 to 90 percent tread left to burn. Also picked up 2 YS rally wheels for $40! $20 a wheel, couldn't pass it up.  Grin  They are 15 X 6 so maybe someone will want them, and I can put them in the trade pile or sell them off for MCACN travel money. That code says '68 - '70 El Camino. There back space is 3.5 inches. My DF's are 4-1/16th. And lastly I was looking inside a small glass case and spotted a shift knob that resembled mine. I remember how the 4 is cocked and stamped a little weird on original knobs. Scored it REAL cheap!  Wink So cheap I can't say.. And it's in very nice condition. I pulled my knob to compare and noticed they are two different sizes. maybe 5/16ths and 3/8ths? I didn't have time to check. Found a couple for sale online for $150 and $195 in about the same condition. Did all this in 45 minutes on a beautiful 74 degree day. I walked ALL of the Turlock meet and found NOTHING off my list. And it was 40 degrees all day with a slight wind chill!. I guess ya just never know. Danny

 NOW, what black should I use on the rest of the rim. .. D

Thanx for all the info.. I am heading out today to find the 1403, as there is none with-in 20 miles. I may just order from Amazon and be done with it... D

Jack, can you look at your can and see if it matches one of the pictures I posted. Does the paint look metallic, or is a nice dull finish. I just don't want to order a bunch of cans and have them be too metallic looking. Anybody know if metallic is just THAT line of paint? I just hot tanked all 5 wheels, I sure don't wanna do it again after painting the wheels...D
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rally Wheel Paint on: April 10, 2015, 02:00:46 PM
I looked and there was 3 or 4 different ones with the 1403 code. They all say metallic, I don't think I want metallic, right? Is it one of these?... D

Looking for a rally wheel paint that is ready to go in a spray can. Just going to shoot the 15 X 7's I just got. Doesn't have to be exact. Just something that looks somewhat close to the original finish. I have found 6 different ones?? OER has one, Summit has one, there are many . And price ranged from 11 bucks a can all the way up to nearly $40 a can. Is the low dollar stuff any good?.. Danny

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / '68 Spare Rim Balanced? on: April 09, 2015, 11:19:20 AM
Was the trunk spare, balanced from the factory? Did they even bother doing that? Should I put a "Micro" weight on there? Danny

I tried it and got this on google.

   Your search - http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=7&s_kwcid=AL!3756!10 ... - did not match any documents.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 15" X 7" Rallys clear everything on a '68 on: April 07, 2015, 06:12:39 PM
OK, SO, I now have 4 - 15" X 7" rally wheels FW code in hand. They were painted metallic silver, so I am hot tanking all 4 of them as I type this. So my speedo is accurate, and the tires don't look funny/skinny from the back. What's a nice tire size to meet visual and speedo functional needs? I will be running Cooper Radials and want it to look close to factory stock, NOT a hotrod look. P225/60R15's? Then I can take my 5 DF rally's and evaporust them and install Good Year E-70 15 's, and be ready for shows... Danny
