The divider goes on the passenger compartment side of the reinforcements, with the "hard" side facing the trunk; the divider goes in first, then the package tray.

You can buy a budget-priced aftermarket oil pressure gauge kit and connect it to the hole the production oil pressure sender uses, or if you have a Flint block, there's another oil pressure tap location at the front of the block, just above the timing cover, with a square-head plug in it - it's the same size as the one at the rear of the block next to the distributor (1/8" NPT).

It's taken from the horizontal rocker surface immediately outboard and adjacent to the pinchweld flange.

Wouldn't be unusual to see different latch/striker processes between Norwood and Van Nuys - Norwood was a Fisher Body/Chevrolet plant, and Van Nuys was a GMAD plant; Norwood followed the Fisher Body Operation Description Sheets to the letter, and the GMAD plants did whatever worked best for them and was most efficient, regardless of what the Fisher O.D. sheets specified.

I was just looking through some paper work I have on one of my cars. Back in 1982 the previous owner had a search done by Triple A Enterprises using the cowl tag and vin # to reproduce a window sticker/option code document. What, if any, valid information could this Co. aquire back then? I'm guessing its just an old scam?

Triple-A doesn't do any "search" on cars, but they've developed a pretty good database over the years for dealer/zone numbers, ECL codes, base car and RPO prices, etc. They just create a repro window sticker based on the information you send them and apply what they feel are the correct ECL codes, prices, and dealer/zone numbers or names (if they have them). Good for car show displays, but won't fool a document specialist; I have them made for my cars - car show spectators get a kick out of the 30-40 year old prices. :-)

Don't know about '67-'68, but '69 Norwood cars had the door latches (including screws) and strikers and the deck lid latch and striker in place when the body was painted, and the deck lid latch will show spatter paint.
3802  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Anything on this VIN and Engine Code Question on: February 04, 2006, 11:27:53 AM
The "HN" suffix was only used twice - once in '65 for the Corvette 327/375 fuelie, and once in '69 for a 350/300hp automatic (TH350) in Impala/Caprice. If the partial VIN has an "F" in it, that leans toward the latter application - what's the block casting number and casting date?

A 3.90 would act like a 2.73-3.08 on the highway in overdrive (depending on the trans).
3804  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the color of the door jamb strikers? on: February 03, 2006, 12:08:28 PM
'69 latches were also installed in the Body Shop - both the latches in the door and the strikers on the lock pillar are painted body color.
3805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Possible Axle swap on: February 02, 2006, 02:27:14 PM
3.90 and higher (numerical) ratios require a Series 4 carrier, 3.73 and lower take a Series 3 carrier.
3806  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wiper motor arm location on: February 02, 2006, 02:24:27 PM
Just connect the linkage to the motor (wiper arms not installed), run the motor through one run/park cycle, then install the arms.
3807  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: X 77 ROCKER MOLDINGS on: February 02, 2006, 02:20:56 PM
Yes, they did - all models/options got the standard bright rocker molding.
3808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the color of the door jamb strikers? on: February 02, 2006, 02:16:16 PM
They were installed in the Body Shop (to fit the doors), and were later painted body color; looks messy, but that's the way it was done.
3809  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z brake booster fitting on: February 02, 2006, 02:13:48 PM
Yes - the correct one has only the one tubular port for the brake booster hose (Rick's INT-3); I use the one with the booster hose port and a vacuum hose port (Rick's INT-4), as it provides a handy connection for a vacuum gauge for setting idle mixture - I just keep a rubber cap on it (see photo).

My original is black, and still has one of the two wide rubber bands attaching it to the jack column.
