331  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Accurate Quarter Louver Location/s. on: February 01, 2011, 02:53:33 AM
Hey Steve I would love to know as well as I am going to drill holes for my louvers soon. I checked the AIM and there are lots of diagrams of emblem placement and measurements, but for some reason I could not find louver mounting specs. Hopefully someone will chime in soon.  Huh

Thanks Gordon that is helpfull information. Can you post a picture of yours? I just want to make sure that when they paint it, that it ends up looking the way I want it to look. I know Cortez silver is 41 years old, but I was curious if the color can still be matched or if guys are using something else nowadays to get a nice finish.
333  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Is this Cortez Silver? on: December 18, 2010, 03:57:47 AM
I am wondering if the experts know if this car was painted Cortez Silver or a different color/shade of Silver.

Thanks

I hope it not to late to correct the paint on your body sills!

It's all good body sill will get painted correctly now that I know the correct way to paint them. I am glad I asked the question, otherwise it would have ended up body color, like it was when I bought it. I wish I had pictures of the car from when it was new, at least before the repaint.

Photo from carlisle legends judging. Took this for my own reference a couple years back.

Hey Tom that car looks insanely clean. A trailer queen no doubt. I love how clean the cars look when they are done, but who could ever drive a car that nice? Makes me want a driver so I can enjoy it and drive it.

Dave has a pic of an original here, Reply #36: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=2458.30

Thanks Scott. Sometimes a picture is worth a thosand words.
337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Body Sill Color on: November 13, 2010, 01:15:40 AM
OK Thanks, but shouldn't it have the rocker molding and wheel opening pin stripes?

Yes - it should have the rocker molding, rocker blackout, and pinstripes.

Thanks John that is what I thought. My car does have the Z21 option, but I removed the chrome trim on the rockers because they were thrashed. Also one of my louvers was missing. I will have it all back in place after the mini resto. Is there an exact dimension for where the blackout begins? I just want to make sure that I get it right.

By the way I read the GM plant assembly article and it was awesome. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing that with us.

One more thing. do you think it makes sense to install the front end as a unit like was dome when new or one piece at a time until together.

Trans code is located right above the name Lesley on the POP.
Same code is stamped on the trans pan too.

Hi Kurt here is the trans code, X8K10. That is reading it backwards to front. I think that's it. Probably not to many of these left. It is very original. I have tons of pictures I took of it if you need any info. Some parts of this car are almost like new. Still has original carpet I think, interior also. I am curious about the trunk paint. Other than that it seems pretty intact. All feedback and advice welcomed and appreciated.
339  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: Hi I am new here and I have a 6 cylinder 1969 Camaro on: November 12, 2010, 12:16:56 AM
Thanks!
What's the trans code? I squinted and I still can't quite read it.

Nice that it got the TH350 trans. Not common in a L6 car.

Hey Kurt where do I find the trans code? I can look at the POP. The car has a few cool options for a six. I wonder what was the most optioned six. Any ideas? I sent you a PM on TC.
340  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Body Sill Color on: November 11, 2010, 09:35:07 PM

Yup that is where I got the info from, but I want to be sure I was reading it right. From what I read it says my car should have a black sill. Please correct me if I am wrong. I would hate to read it wrong and end up with the wrong paint.
341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Correct Body Sill Color on: November 11, 2010, 08:47:50 PM
Just curious I have noticed that some 1969 cars have a black sill. I have a 1969 6 cylinder Camaro with trim option Z21. I would like to know if my car should have a black sill or body color, which is white.

Thanks
342  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring 6 Cylinder 69 Camaro. Should I keep it original or COPO Clone it? on: November 10, 2010, 11:22:16 PM
If you are trying to gain support from this site for anything other than Original  I don't think its going to happen. Aside from mild modifications this is why this site is here. Even though you have received several comments in favor of; "Keep it Original ", you are still leaning in towards cloning it. As for its more valuable as a Copo Clone Huh. If you are considering this change as an investment, take a look at what copo clones are selling for...around 50% (probably less) of the total investment.

Bottom line, its your car...do whatever you are comfortable with and whatever makes you happy.

IMO...for what its worth...


Thanks Marty I appreciate the opinion. I am starting to lean towards keeping it original if it is not too late. I was going to keep it all original but it had a few serious rust issues that needed to be addressed. if you check out the TC thread you will see where I am at.
343  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring 6 Cylinder 69 Camaro. Should I keep it original or COPO Clone it? on: November 10, 2010, 11:18:09 PM
Mostly white, with significant rust. Much has been disassembled. Many parts in bins. Two kids in college, and unemployed. Progress is totally stalled till better times. While I have a number of detail photos, some worse than others, I can not find any shots of the whole car, or major portions. This is the closest I could find.

Hey Tom mine was simular condition under the bondo. What part of the country are you in. What are the other details on your car, interior, motor etc. What are you plans for the car?
344  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: Hi I am new here and I have a 6 cylinder 1969 Camaro on: November 10, 2010, 10:35:49 PM
Nice looking car. I'd drive it, daily. Smiley

Can you also post a pic of the POP?

Hi Kurt here is the POP

345  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring 6 Cylinder 69 Camaro. Should I keep it original or COPO Clone it? on: November 10, 2010, 10:21:15 PM
I guess there is no harm in freshening it up. Like I planned to do with the subframe and engine bay, firewall ect.

Car has already had one repaint so I might as well paint it again. I would like to add a spoiler front and rear as well as put a set of multi leafs in the rear. The car drives real nice and is a smooth as glass. Perhaps I should keep this as a nice driver and buy a cheap basket case that I can build from scratch. I am learning so much from this present build. Besides if I paint it I might not have enough money for any drive train upgrades. Always appreciate the advice Scott.
There's a difference between restored and original. The car is original right now except for paint. "Freshening' the underhood is restoring it - to me, that changes the car completely. I'd take the car as it sits. Restored, I'd probably pass on it.

I like the looks of the exterior. How many white/blue cars do you ever see? No less without spoilers. Find any 69 without spoilers (other than the Z on the homepage!) - everyone adds them!

What are you fixing with the multileafs?

Your car, but you don't find originals like this very often.


Hi Kurt I am at the point where I can stop and just clean it up. However as Scott has said, it has been painted before and I just changed one quarter panle and the other was changed before I got it. Instead of painting the firewall I could just clean it. I have fixed the rust areas, which had to be fixed. since has been painted before, painting it again can't hurt it. Why don't you check it out Kurt and let me know what you think. I have painted some of the underhood parts already.
