361  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Camaro Rocker Panel Rubber Drain Plugs Part #'s ??? on: October 17, 2012, 01:10:08 PM
Wow, I love this site! I bought these for myself on ebay a few years ago. I wondered if they were identical part #'s.  Huh  Then I sold the car. I asked a question about the location of them on the car. I think on this site, but I just tryrd to find it and couldn't. I think there was a response saying I could get over $100 for them cause they are original I guess. I think I paid every bit of that or more for them but can't remember. I guess I'll throw them online and test the water. Plus, I gotta find them in my storage first before I go selling them...... Danny
362  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Camaro Rocker Panel Rubber Drain Plugs Part #'s ??? on: October 15, 2012, 02:47:33 PM
Does anybody have the part number for these rocker drain plugs pictured. I want to sell them onine but only one has a part number. The other is worn off. Would be nice to have both numbers. I also want to make sure they are for Camaro applications. I checked online but could not find them. I have no AIM books. Any help would be appreciated.... Danny

I have one of these some where. I think my Dad got it when he got his 65 chevy truck from Ellis Brooks Chevrolet on Vaness in San Fran. I'll probably never be able to find it. Danny

WOW, talk about learning something important. I wonder who started that trend and when.  Just like the coil bracket I bought off ebay cause it had a notch in it. You straightened me out on that and many other things. Well thanx as always.....  Danny
365  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Z/28 on ebay on: October 02, 2012, 06:51:07 PM
This is a very nice car. But the cowl looks wrong to me. Kinda crooked on the numbers. And the VIN stamp on the block is the deepest I have ever seen. Never seen one SO easy to read. What say you?..... Danny
366  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Engine Bay Pic's on: October 02, 2012, 11:43:30 AM
DavidS, Looks like the right rear spark plug shield may be a repro. As it has no notch in it. JohnZ and the guys can be sure. Hey John, why isn't your hood hinges and spring assemblies gray phos??.... Danny
367  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Help me put a value on 68' rs/ss numbers matching unrestored on: September 30, 2012, 05:33:14 PM
Yes from a low knowledge guy. There is some things I don't like. Like the heater control panel being all pushed in on the right. I would for sure get some Front pad, Trans and Rear pic's before I did anything. I don't even get excited anymore until I see those. Then I check hidden VIN's. THEN and only then do I begin to further my effort.   Danny
368  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 survivor Z on ebay on: September 25, 2012, 05:30:20 PM
Very nice car. But I agree on the sway bar bushings. I have never seen any brightly colored facory bushings. Also looks like the wrong dip stick  Huh.... Danny
369  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Introduce myself an my car on: August 29, 2012, 04:52:40 PM
ChronoX, you actually can get a picture of the passenger cowl hidden vin. My trick is I use soap stone. They use it to mark steel when cutting and fabricating. It is very thin and will fit between the louvers. You have to be easy with it cause it is brittle. But make sure you clean the area first with pressured water or carb clean er something. Then let dry and stick the stone down there and fill up the numbers with it by dragging it back and forth accross the area. Then lightly blow the excess away between the letters. With your mouth, NOT compressed air. And presto, you are ready for high lighted pictures.... Danny
370  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay Z/28..Does this cowl tag look ok? on: August 24, 2012, 11:28:57 AM
I was doing that, and got behind and thought I would remember which was which. I didn't get the files filled-up in time. Can I PM you a few pictures to confirm? That way I will have about 10 ready to study.   Grin Grin Wink.. Danny

Welcome, I am a semi-neebie, and very happy to be a part of this forum.
I have to say, as I have said in the past, I am not an expert in THIS field by any shape of the word. And doing my best to learn as much as possible. AND be able to retain it.

 But this cowl tag is not looking right to me. I hope I am wrong. William, Paul, Mark, JohnZ, Marty and all the guys will straighten it out as soon as they chime in. I wish interested parties sent pictures and check in BEFORE they buy. Again, don't panic, you will know very soon.... Danny
372  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay Z/28..Does this cowl tag look ok? on: August 23, 2012, 12:51:44 PM
Wow, I thought as much... I am getting better at picking them out. But only if it has that one number. If it doesn't, I can't do it. I wish I could learn more about it. But I know I can't learn it in a public forum. Well, I got this one. I'm on a roll.  Grin ... Danny

This tag doesn't look right to me. What do ya'll think?? Danny
374  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Don L Posi Sticker, Nice work eh! on: August 12, 2012, 09:53:50 PM
Hey Don I went to your website. Nice job for sure. I noticed some things you might be interested in. This is the differences between the current repro and the original that I found.
Looks like you have addressed pretty much everything. Except like you mentioned the thickness of the center cross line. And also the distance of that line is lower on original from bottom of lettering. And maybe a little more space between the apostrophe and the “R”.  Nice!! … Danny
Ok here we go...

# 1  - The “ C “ in caution is cut nearly straight down and does not roll over. In fact, each cut of the “C” is tapered back a few percent.
# 2 – The top of the “T” cross is shorter on the original.
# 3 – The “O” on caution on the original is rounder, and not oval shaped. And that goes for all 10 “O’s”
# 4 – There is more space between each letter on the word C a u t i o n. Also that “C” in that word is cut back like the others.
# 5 – The three horizontal lines on the “E” in the word Vehicle are the same length. Your center is shorter. And that goes for all 23 of them.
# 6 – The cross run thru line on the “Q” of equipped goes thru the letter into the center and is cut straight horizontally.
# 7 – Hard to tell from the picture, but all the period’s look to have more space showing between the last letter on the originals.
# 8 – Horizontal center lines on all “F” are shorten on original.
# 9 – The “G” in “Ground” and “Though” has no right side down tail on original.
# 10 – The Dash in between Trans  “ - “  Mission is lower, fatter, and longer on the original.
# 11 – The apostrophe on Owners has more space between the “R” and the “S” on the original.
# 12 – All lettering AND numbering has more white space between each letter, and INSIDE each letter.

How did I do??    Grin

This car looks like a replica to me. What say you all? Emblem WAY to far back on fender among other things. This car is just a few minutes from me. But I don't think I wanna even go see it.
