Yup, .035" gap.

Housings on both front fenders and in the lower center of the rear window - headlights and park/turn lamps were monitored in the front, and outboard taillamps and license light were monitored in the rear.

I run AC R45S plugs in all my small-blocks, with and without factory domed pistons; good all-around plug for normal driving, no fouling in my '69 Z/28, which would foul 44's occasionally around town. Autolite 86's also work well for the same normal operation.

Original '69 side marker lamp bezels had no paint, and no groove; they were all chrome, with a raised rib around the lens opening in the bezel.

Hi, was the original radiator cap for 68 396 350hp the short eared or long eared type?
Were they 15 psi?
Any pics appreciated

The caps with the short ears are later GM service replacements.

After you hit the "quote" button and the quoted message text shows up in the reply box, just highlight the text you don't want to appear in your reply and hit "delete"; that way you don't have to have the entire message appear in your reply - only the part you want to respond to.  Smiley

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.
3879  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: X code on rear seat brace on: May 01, 2006, 01:57:46 PM
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.
3880  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: contro; arm splash shield on: April 30, 2006, 12:54:31 PM
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.
3883  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Folding rear seat option on: April 28, 2006, 01:17:50 PM
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).
3884  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '69 Camaro " - - " Paint Code Question on: April 27, 2006, 01:26:05 PM
In production, I believe the only units with the tail panel painted black were SS big-blocks.
3885  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.
