That L5 head marking is a RB&W product, not sure what the D one is.

So the "f" looking mark is Ferndale Fasteners, Madison Hgts, MI and the RBW is RB&W Corp (now RB&W Manufacturing, after several changes of ownership) with plants in Ohio.  A few others I can recall is the CL (overlayed) which is Centerline Tool & Engineering Corp, the circle with a "lazy" S in it which is Semco Fastener, and a "lazy" S without a circle which is Semblex Corp.  These things remind me of cattle brands from the old western movies.

Must have been some sort of time-space anomaly, back to around 2005 or 2006.  That underhood shot has me doing face-palms.

Are you talking about the material between the vent window glass and the frame around the glass, which mounts the glass into the frame?  If so, see the bottom right item on this site illustration, auto glass setting tape:

Here's another source, I imagine any glass shop would also carry this:

IIRC, when taking off you want to gently pry from the bottom, using a somewhat wider tool to spread the pressure across the trim.  You can also place something under you pry tool to avoid paint damage.  Install is the opposite - hook the top edge over the lip first and align screw holes, then gently push down to snap it in.  I've seen some run a length of masking tape along the bottom to avoid chipping but personally I don't think it is necessary.  The aim is to first avoid any damage to the more visible top edge of the trim.
201  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What rare part would you like to see a top quality reproduction produced? on: January 06, 2012, 05:41:06 PM
The small end pieces for the top trim on a fold down seat, but I doubt there's much demand.  Also air cleaner housing decals with the correct part number for K19 or K24 equipped cars.
202  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Which head casting date is correct? on: January 04, 2012, 01:24:22 PM
Do you have the original block, or are you building a "date correct" engine?  You should be comparing the engine build date (stamped, and assuming it is not a fake/restamp) with the head casting dates.  Obviously the heads need to be cast earlier than when the engine was assembled.  This old thread and links found within may help, I think it has generally acceptable date spans:

Go to the top of the page, click on the Advanced Search term to the right of the Search: box, and run a search using something like firewall paint or underhood paint.  You'll get many threads like this one:

You'll find that the firewall blackout paint process was not an exact art.

Interesting. So only the early SS 350's had the "SS-350" Gas cap. A friend had one back in the 70's with that cap, so it must have been an early car.

Jimmy V.

Correct, also the center grille badge.  I'm not sure if it also carried over to the center cap on standard steering wheels.

I read somewhere the early SS's, (before BB's started in late Dec.) only had the SS Emblem front and rear.  They started the SS 350 Emblem sometime after the BB cars went into production.

You are correct Mike. HERE'S where you read it.

At this time, the only SS was the SS-350 model, and the badges on the car read "SS-350". When the SS-396 was introduced in January 1967, the badges were changed for all SS models to read "SS".


Ed, isn't what Mike asked totally opposite of actual 67 "SS 350" badging and thus incorrect? (early ones used it, once BBs introduced all the SS models used same "SS" fuel cap and grille emblem)
206  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: anatomy of a basket case on: January 02, 2012, 08:00:21 PM
Did it have the SS 350 fuel cap?
207  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: anatomy of a basket case on: January 02, 2012, 05:55:06 PM
Looks like red showing through, under the blue steering wheel?  I need to start going to yard sales if they have rear foldowns for sale!

That address is in Sharonville, roughly 10 miles north of Norwood and just inside the 275 beltway.  Looks like a large industrial type building or warehouse with numerous bay doors.  Hard to tell age but not a new structure.  The company there now is Nisbett Brower, looks like they're in construction or architecture, building industry etc.  Number is 513-563-1111, maybe they know the building's history.

I googled the Covington KY white pages and got a Daniel R Dilts, 1207 Sunset Road, Covington KY 41011, (859) 261-0385, age 60-64 but who knows how accurate that is.  Looks like a stone's throw from the original address, and just across the Ohio River from Cincy.  Sometimes you get lucky  Smiley  
209  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro Deck Lid Luggage Rack and its Accessory Ski Rack on: December 13, 2011, 11:04:17 AM
Re question 3 - In the past year I've seen 2, maybe 3 NOS accessory ski racks listed on eBay.  Can't recall the sell price, likely several hundred dollars.  NOS luggage racks go for around $1200 on ebay dependent on whether all the parts are there.  They also show up a few times a year.  I'll see if I captured any pics which show the part number on the box.  I've no idea on the correct part numbers by year and application.

Here's an older thread, usually it's an X66 behind the rear seat to match the Norwood "X" code on the trim tag for SS396.  Maybe they got a little lax since the two digits are always the same, or it was at the beginning of their use.

Here's "X" codes explained
