301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original/Reproduction Smog Setups for '69 Z28?? on: January 02, 2013, 09:58:30 AM
69Z28-RS, I think I have a couple coils in my storage. I can't think of the number right now. 293 BR?? Or is it 270? Anyway, I will be selling all that stuff this year if you need a coil LMK.... Danny

Gee... what ever do you mean. Cause you know Jerry and I know nothing about 69 Camaros.... Right?... Ha Ha  Wink
I would say I have a pretty good working knowledge as just a regular back yard car guy. But Jerry M. is at the top of the knowledge list as far as I am concerned. I wonder if he seen this discussion?... Danny

Bergy, nice shop and car indeed. Would love to have info on the cars. Maybe just a couple lines each about them. No VINS or anything, just always fun to see what fellow car guys have.

As far as compressor location.... At my last place I had the compressor in a fully insulated room 100 feet away. Then I ran pipe to the shop area in 1" type "L" copper. Compressor could kick on anytime and I never heard a thing. I used to forget sometimes and leave it on. So I wired a very small appliance bulb off one of the 110Volt legs. And mounted it in the little window. That way when I was done and walking into my house, I would see it.

Do we know if this is even the correct trim tag for THIS car?? It has been removed and showing newer rivets for the install, and missing two others. So we KNOW it's been off. Right??....... Danny

Do we know of this cortez silver Z/28 on eBay? Is it in the DB as a real factory JL8 car? It sure is beautiful. Very nice job on the pictures and presentation. Just curious what we know about it. Cowl tag looks to be a little over sanded... Real Tag?... Danny

Yes he just pumps these fake cars out like water. 10 10 Cars are super scarce in original condition but he seems to always have one laying around...   Grin  ....Danny

Well I too was kinda tired of seeing this guys cloned cars being pitched as original every week for years! I have gotten in email fights with him in the past. So I called him on it and told him to call Jerry M. for an inspection. Here is his reply....

         and I quote, " Jerry is like you don't know anything about 69 camaro's "

         Cheers Steve

Now here is something even funnier than that statement. This sentence is grammatically incorrect. It should say ,"Jerry is like you, he ALSO doesn't know anything about Camaro's. 10 words and he can't pull it off. Oh well to funny. Nice car but MAJOR issues and just another pretty 30K Camaro with nice paint.........Danny
311  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: building a garage on: December 24, 2012, 09:52:23 PM
JMCbeth you are right in alot of ways. I never got my shop up, but I did alot of work on friends shops.
   The lift idea is great on wheels. Build a lean-to on the side and when not in use roll it out of the shop and out of the way. IF you have room??
   Lighting is great, nice commercial lighting does the trick. Don't get them from box stores, go to an electrical supply house.
   Heated floors are the best. Trying to heat large cubic feet can be expensive. Like I mentioned before, on demand tankless with zone valves.
   Check into a company called "BIG ASS Fans". Throw one of those with 6 or 8 or 10 foot blades in the ceiling with a remote and variable speed.
   Electrical outlets at both sides of the lift mounted to it AND in the floor! That's right flush mount in the floor with nice brass covers.
   Air lines on both sides of the lift and all over the bench area is great. I am a plumber for the last 24 years, and I do all my friends air lines in type "L" or "K" copper. With gauges, moisture filters and drain downs    
   looking down so you can drain condensation. Also make sure to stub out air lines OUTSIDE in front of the shop in between the rollups. A few feet of pipe and some fittings.
   While you are at it always run a mixing valve out front also for hot and cold water. Install a filtration system in-line so that way you can wash your car with filtered warm water.  Grin Grin  And when you spill trany fluid or the like, you have hot water to wash it down.
   It really is endless, I could go on and on. But I will tell you one other thing I have built for friends is a tall bench. And by that I mean a bench that is 48 inches high. Almost everybody builds there benches to low. Then I  
   watch them bend down while they are trying to see something. If you don't want your whole bench that height, then just build a 2 or 3 foot section at 48 to 50 inches. TRUST me,... when you are trying to solder some wires, or work on a small item it is great to just look almost right at it with out bending over. I have even built REMOVABLE 2 foot sections that clamp on your bench. Hang it on the wall, and take it down when needed and drop it into place and clamp it. Mount a baby vice, small light, magnifying glass, and those little vices with 2 or 3 flex arms on it ready to go. I wish I had pictures. I have been in multi-million dollar shops with live dolphins in the back yard!! And they build there benches at 30 inches??? Why Huh Huh  Never could understand that. I mention it and people laugh at me. And they do it with a sore back  Cool   ... Danny

And here is the lost car....... Danny
313  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: building a garage on: December 20, 2012, 06:27:08 PM
Here is my new unassembled building. 18 feet at the eves with a 1:12 pitch for mor stand up room. 400 Amp dual meter service for welders, lifts, glass beader, compressor etc. etc.No snow in Northern CA.The left door will go directly into my living space. Pull up right behind my couch! Radiant heat on 4 separate zones. If it's 30 degrees out and you are having dinner. And you know you are going to be working in the shop, you set that zone for 70 degrees and when you are done eating it's ready. BillOhio, it's actually on demand tankless you are probably talking about, not an instant hot. Instant hot goes at the kitchen sink. 2,600 Sq. Ft. living space and 1,600 Sq. Ft. shop. So it's 4,000 sq. Ft. CLEAR SPAN with enough room for a stand up loft, or storage or another bedroom another house to rent out with separate outside entrance. It's endless. OR.... I might switch it to 2,600 shop and 1,600 living. Roll up doors are R-9 insulated w/openers. Hit the button in the rain and drive right in my house. Kinda Dan Tana style. 2 - 10 X 10 doors and one 12 X 16 for a boat/RV/ ?  Good Times!....

OK, now the bad news...I bought this to have for my Z/28 storage spot and work shop. Lost the car in the middle of paying for it, { See picture of car } gotta sell the building as I can't afford the 50K for permits, slab, sewer tie in, etc. etc. etc.. Wanna buy it?Huh....Danny

40' X 100' X 18' Prefab metal building. Includes bags of hardware for assembly. This is a clear span 4,000 square foot Steel building. Open floor plan with NO center supports. The bracing is set-up for CA building standards to pass inspection. If you wanted to, you could take one door out of the front and put it in line in the back. That way you have a drive-thru. You can see how the roof vents split between the bays. And the Skylight panels can be put in where you want. This is 18' at the eves. So the pitch of the roof is higher by what looks like 2 or 3 feet. Never assembled. Manufactured in San Diego CA. This is a very nice building, far superior then most on the market. This building is 18 feet at the eves so it is set-up for a stand-up live-in loft inside. Use for shop and a Granny unit or bigger above. It is "A" frame gable symmetrical. With a 1:12 pitch. It is 4 bays at 25' each. Wind load is 85 MPH. It comes with the following: Assembly Manual, 2 sets of Blue Prints; 2 sets of Foundation Plans; 2 sets of foundation calc's; 2 sets of structural design calc's; 2 sets of Houston-Atwater spec's. ALL are stamped by a licensed engineer and ready to go for CA. 3 - 36" X 70" metal man doors with hardware. It is framed-out for roll-up doors on one long side for.. One 10' X 10', One 12' X 16' and another 10' X 10'. Door's not included; 10- Skylight roof panels; Trim is full cover deluxe formed for siding; 3- 10' Roof ridge vent's. Outside color of siding is light stone. The pictures just show what it would look like. Of course you would have 3 door openings on the one side, or you could buy some extra siding and only use one or two of the roll-up openings. You don't have to use all 3. This building is at my property in Sonoma CA and is ready for Pick-up. You will need a 45' flatbed if you want to do it all in ONE load. Otherwise 2 or 3 trips with a smaller trailer is fine. It did all arrive on ONE 45 foot trailer. To load I would use a JLG or Back Hoe. This building is ready to go. Just lay a slab and put it up. I have approx. 36K invested. Make an offer. Please be ready to bring help to load, as I will be unable to help.
314  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / ANOTHER Z28 on eBay 10 10 code, rivets weird? on: December 07, 2012, 02:51:27 AM
Here is my dream car. They really did a heck of a job on this baby. It is near perfect. But check out the cowl tag rivets. Look strange to ya'all. Is the cowl tag even real GM? Like Kurt mentioned a while back more than once.... the 10 10 code has been faked for years since the 70's. Sure would be nice to see some pictures of a real documented 69' Z/28 R/S code 10 10 ...
         VIN 124379N628924

  Also this one from the same company. These guys only have 2 feedbacks on ebay. Wonder if the other cars were real?

         VIN 124379N662200

   Hope we don't have some new serial forgers .....  Danny

Thanks for sharing the pics!  Man that takes me back!  I've still got my In-A-Gadda-De-Vida tape.  Wish I had the 8 track.

I think the original title for that song was "In the garden of Eden". And in the traslation of it all over the phone it was written down wrong. I still have about 50 8-tracks. Mine, My buddys, and his Sister's. And a nice player in great shape for a home stereo. Good Times eh!!... Danny
