I use Bounce dryer sheets and/ or a product called Fresh Cab. Both have nice fragrane (compared to mothballs).
Fresh Cab at implement dealers or Amazon.
169Indy what is your source for DRIEZ?
Also anyone have experience with the electronic rodent repellers?

I used the medium gray phosphate coating from Palmetto on my 69 Camaro hinges. The color looks just right. You can make the color darker (but not charcoal gray) by leaving the part in the solution longer. I use either WD40 or Rem oil on the treated parts.
After a year no rust on the hinges.

Another rodent repellant I use is Fresh Cab.
Small packets which last several months. Nice aroma. Works for me.
Can buy at Amazon and many farm implement dealers.
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay good deal, real deal?? Engine stamp funny on: January 19, 2013, 05:52:11 PM
I have an 09E Norwood Camaro Z28 which is also yellow with the 714 interior and also a black vinyl top. It is an X33 D80 car.
My body number is 119445. In September of 69 the week of 09E consisted of only 2 days, Monday the 29th and Tuesday the 30th.
Would seem like one of the bodies is out of sequence a bit. Doubt they could build 1900 cars in 2 days.

My 69 Z28 (Norwood car) only has two speedo clips. The one on the firewall and the one nearest the tranny. There is a dimple in the lower firewall/tunnel area where the other speedo clip hole should have been drilled but wasn't.

 Thanks for responding.
  I did find a thread of yours on Team Camaro which outlined how to test the amp meter with a multimeter using volts. I did so and the amp gauge tested good.
  I noticed a slight amount of corrosion on the two terminals of the amp gauge. Upon cleaning those thoroughly I am now getting some needle movement. Might have been just enough resistance on the corroded terminals to render the gauge dead. I may be out of the woods on this item now. thanks again.

Should mention that when checking across the terminals on the back of the amp gauge with my multi meter I get a reading of about .4 Ohms. This is with the battery disconnected and the console connector unplugged.

My amp gauge does not work. Needle stays at O at all times. Alternator is charging, battery is at 14.5 Volts with engine running.
I have checked continuity on the red wire running from the horn relay to the terminal behind the battery. It is fine. I have checked the continuity of the wires (black and black with white stripe) at the console plug in (at the 10 or so pin console connector).
I have continuity on both the console side of the connector and the firewall side of the connector. I have run a separate ground from the amp gauge to ground with no positive results.
My service manual does not help me trouble shoot at all.
I think I have continuity to the console plug in telling me the fusible links are intact. I am not so sure about my tests on the gauge itself. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have read the many threads both on here as well as on Team Camaro but am now stumped!
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Plastic Repair on: February 22, 2012, 01:12:03 PM
How exactly does one go about determining what type of plastic they are dealing with? For instance what type
of plastic is the instrument cluster?
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Metering (or hold off valve) on: April 23, 2011, 10:43:11 AM
  Have replaced the brake lines, master cylinder and booster on my 69 Z28. Bled the brakes and noticed a minor fluid leak from the rear of the round metering valve. Ordered a rebuild kit from HBC which consisted of three parts: the external rear button boot, the front o-ring and the rear cup rubber seal (which mine did not have in it when I disassembled it). Too bad the rebuild kit does not include the internal flat washer!
  Before I disassembled and now upon reassembly I noticed the bypass button on the rear of the metering valve cannot be pushed in, even when placed in the vice.
   I measured the length of the parts and then the length of the internal cavity in which they go when assembled and the distances are the same. What gives? No way for the rear button to push in! I have searched the several threads on this site and over at Team Camaro. No one seems to have run across this.
  I think there are a couple different designs of this metering valve but mine is like some others whose internals are shown on the various threads. How mine did not leak with out the rear cup seal before I replaced the other components of the system I do not know. Any thoughts from any one?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Power Steering Pump Pulley on: March 14, 2011, 04:42:29 PM
According to the CRG charts the pulley in question fits a small block (307, 327, 350) but not the 302. That works. Thanks all.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Power Steering Pump Pulley on: March 14, 2011, 04:38:32 PM
I removed the 3770509CE pulley to put the correct 3941105DD deep groove on it.
Just wondering what the 3770509CE fits.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Power Steering Pump Pulley on: March 14, 2011, 10:25:12 AM
I removed the power steering pump pulley from my 69 Z28. It is part number 3770509CE. Could some one tell me what the application(s) is/are for this pulley?
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Exhaust Hangers on: March 06, 2011, 08:01:06 PM
My preference, I believe, is to clear coat the natural finish hangers to retard rust and use stainless steel bolts and nuts.
Thanks for the responses.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Exhaust Hangers on: March 04, 2011, 08:23:37 AM
I had spoken with Gardner. They offer the hangers unplated (natural metal) in their base kit. For an additional sum of money they will
plate the hangers. They called it galvanizing but perhaps they mean silver plating.
Does any one know how the judges at a major meet would evaluate plated hanger brackets when the originals were unplated?
