Restoration / Re: steering and front suspension issue

Not if new is bound-up and not functioning as required. Never count out a new part as the problem, learned from experience.

I have always said, new means new, new is not necessarily good.  Especially with all the new junk out there today.

Originality / Re: 1969 L48 oil cap - painted or chrome?

My 1969 L48 has a painted oil cap and a chrome air cleaner cover. The valve covers are painted also. I bought the car from the second owner in 1974. Nothing had been replaced as far as I could tell.

Restoration / Re: Front rotors

I needed one rotor for my car, so I bought a hub and rotor asm., took the rotor and bolted it to my original hub and gave it a light turn on a brake lathe. Now hub and rotor look original and I have a spare hub if ever needed.

Restoration / Re: Jacking Decal Removal
« on: October 26, 2016, 09:40:12 PM »
I contacted Don Lightfoot about making a reproduction of my jacking instructions.  He said he couldn't do it.  Then I contacted and worked with Robert Cardillo (Team Camaro) and he came up with a spot on decal for me.  If you can get your instructions off, great!!  If not try Robert, he's great to work with, is quite reasonably priced and does a very good job.  The reason I had to have one made was because all the repros on the market are wrong.

Here's my pump while I was rebuilding it.  Is this what you need?  I do have more pics.

I used In Line Tube oem steel on my car.  All brake lines, fuel lines (pump to filter, filter to carb, tank to pump and return), transmission cooler lines, and trans modulator line, and vacuum advance line.  All fit perfect and look great.

General Discussion / Re: Different size 1969 Camaro Headrest
« on: October 01, 2016, 10:06:22 PM »
My original headrests for my 11D (early 69) are straight, dated 9-18-68, and measure just over 13 and 9/16 inches. The plastic shield under the rest does stick out about 1/32 inches on the inboard side.

As for the Oklahoma car, I hope someone puts a clock in it during the "restoration"...................... ;)

Restoration / Convertible Inner Quarter Panel Brace
« on: June 23, 2016, 09:39:26 PM »
The bottom of the inner quarter panel brace on the left side of my car has seen better days. I fabricated a lower portion on the right side and I have to admit it came out pretty good. However, it was very time consuming and took a few tries before I came up with a patch that was suitable to me (even though this panel cannot be seen once the quarter panel is welded in place). I know they make patch panels for coupes, now here is my question; Will the lower 2 inches of that panel fit a convertible?? I have studied the pictures of the aftermarket panel shown on Heartbeat City's website (BDY-1528) and think it might do the trick, but have hesitated on purchasing until I can get some input from anyone who has some experience. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What is the build date of your car?  My early 69 (11D) SS/RS convert (300 HP 350) has a black air cleaner sticker that is a little differently shaped. It is a CO with part number 6484584 air filter element is A348C.

All 1969 SS's regardless of interior had hood insulation I believe.  I know my L48 w/ standard interior has it.

Glad you found your stampings. Here's where my stampings were.
