There is a company called that is advertises nos keys. I bought some nos keys for my 69 camaro, he can also stamp the key codes on the knock outs like the how the keys would have came from the factory when the car was new.

Hey good stuff, but none of their links [buttons] lead anywhere??? or do you have to sign up to even browse the site?? Tried sending an email to them via their web mail and it was returned to me as undeliverable??

Joey's pretty busy, and not much for e-mails - use the phone and call him. His work is pricey, but perfect; his keys pass NCRS judging every time.

Here's a photo of the original cap on the left rear shock stud on my 02D '69Z; I assume it's there as a luggage protector.

Assuming it's a Norwood car, in many cases the X-code was written on that brace in abbreviated form (X3, X7, etc.), even before the X-codes appeared on the cowl tag.

Yes, they do. The long flap at the bottom is designed to tuck into the slot adjacent to the inboard end of the control arm, as shown in the Assembly Manual (UPC 11/13); photo below of my original '69.

Ah ok, so mine was built 3rd week of December 1967, and would definitely have come with hex keys.

Yup, I see a lot of stuff on ebay being listed as NOS when it's clearly not, and they're not just using NOS as a keyword either.

That's because NOS (new old stock - production parts) and NORS (new old replacement stock - service replacement parts made later) are two different things, and sellers hope buyers don't know the difference, so sellers just call anything that looks new as "NOS". If you don't know exactly what you're looking for, chances are slim to none that you'll get "NOS" parts. They may be functionally equivalent, but won't necessarily look the same.

The trunk spatter paint was shot in the Paint Shop, at the same time as the firewall blackout, before the final bake oven; the trunk mat was installed after paint, in the Trim Shop. I'm not aware of any undercoating applied to the inside of the quarter panels in the trunk, but I'm not that familiar with 68's.

12300 is 6-cylinder Camaros, 12400 is V-8 Camaros; F41 requires 12400 (a V-8 car), and isn't available with SS or Z/28, as it was included in those options. Also not available on 12300 (6-cylinder cars).

In production, I believe the only units with the tail panel painted black were SS big-blocks.
3864  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What is this? on: April 26, 2006, 12:19:31 PM
Yes, they are - and on a Corvette, the front two wires on each side are covered with a chrome heat shield.

It will also be at the Camaro Superfest 2006 from June 30th - July 2nd in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with Tom Peters and Brian Smith from the design team. Info/details at .

"MARTINSR" has an excellent post (I think it's a "sticky" now) in the Body Shop section at Team Camaro ( that deals with front sheet metal fitting, especially hoods. Check it out.

Many of our NCRS guys prefer the Quanta Chevy Engine Orange - it's available in spray cans or in quarts (

That's the clip that goes on both sides (under a pan bolt) on cars with ram's horn exhaust manifolds to retain the front two plug wires on each side and hold them away from the manifold heat.

Most of the time it was just a piece of masking tape torn off a roll and stuck on the pad; sometimes the pad was just wiped with a solvent-soaked rag instead. It wasn't a "concours" operation - they just needed to have the pad readable at the shipping dock with engines coming in one every twelve seconds.

With that bolt pattern, it's probably for a Ford or AMC application.
