211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Dash Grab Handle Conversion Question on: March 13, 2013, 11:38:26 PM
I am converting my standard dash to a grab handle dash. I have the black plastic piece that mounts to the dash that the handle attaches to, however I would like to know the following. My interior is 715 Dark Blue standard. Should the plastic backing piece be black or blue and what colour should the grab handle be. I have not seen a picture of a standard blue interior with a grab handle before.

Thanks

The backing plate is black plastic, and the handle is interior trim color.

Thanks John. I was told the handle should be black. Great to have the right info.

If you look in the Assembly Manual (section Z87, sheet A1), you'll see item #10 (the plastic plate) shown as P/N 3939692; that's one color (black) for all usages. Then look at item #9 (the handle), and it shows as P/N 3925430 "chart", which says it was furnished in interior trim colors.

Thanks John I will check it out

Thanks Gary. I will check tomorrow. I was told it is an original carb that was rebuilt and refinished.

Hey Gary where do I find the nipple on the dash pot?
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 3 Speed Auto Steering Column to 4 Speed on the floor Question on: March 11, 2013, 10:41:54 PM
I am changing from a 3 speed auto on the column to a 4 speed on the floor and I am wondering if I can still use my steering column. Obviously I need to remove the shifter handle. However, what other changes do I need to make. Or would it be easier/make more sense to buy another unit. If using my existing is inexpensive and an easy swap, I would prefer to go that route.

Thanks

Thanks Steve good to know.  How does the rest of the carb look?

Hi Gary here is a picture of a 4053 I found that has just been restored. I just had it on the dyno and it works great.

I wonder if the wing nut on my original car is correct? Were all wing-nuts created equal?

Nice work Lloyd.

I think this may be my all time favorite Camaro. Thanks for posting the great articles. My next car should be this one. However in the above picture it looks like a rally sport, but Smokeys cars looked like non RS cars to me. How many cars did he run? This would be the only RS I have seen.

Noticed this one was removed from auction - wonder if it sold, or just removed for further tweaking ? Pretty car, but details like the shroud warning tag are an instant flag that someone didn't complete their homework assignment -

Regards,
Steve

Agreed

Thanks for PMing me. I look forward to following your build.
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Azure 1969 Z on: March 06, 2013, 08:04:19 PM
Great Looking car. Like to 70.5 as well. I had a '71 Z28 in 1979, my first car. It had a transplanted drive train from a total 1970 Z28. 4:10 rear gear M22 and real factory LT1. When I bought the car the drive train was long gone and replaced, with a generic motor and non posi hiway diff. That car was a rocket ship. I really miss it. That is whty I am putting the same drive train in my '69. Looking forward to pics when you get it painted. Azure is one of my favorite colours.

Too bad. Looks like someone spent some time to do a not bad restoration. CAutions sticker is always a dead give away that not enough research was done on the car. I just don't get why this is such a problem. Hasn't it been discussed enough for people to catch on?
