1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Headrest Restorer??? on: January 11, 2015, 10:20:55 PM
That is a good question. I am wondering, out loud, does "JUST DASHES" also reskin headrests in spite of the company name?
I have seen some DYI attempts at car shows that look funny, like Hannibal Lector got into interior restoration work (sorry about that).

Hey guys....Can someone tell me the correct finish the 837 alternator fan blade had?  I believe it was "silver zinc" plating.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.   Don

I have a set of door mirrors for a 1969 Camaro I would like to have restored because they are "Originals".

What is a "set"?  1969 Camaros only had one door mirror, on the driver's side.
My car came with one on passenger door.  This is incorrect??    Don
No, only had drivers side mirror but many were added or dealer installed over the years. Soak in Mineral Spirits for a day and my mirror came out and as Bill stated there are 4 globs of what looks like some type of silicone. Then send your mirrors out to be re-chromed and when returned use an adhesive to place the mirrors back in place. Check the date codes on your glass.
I have the old mirror glass removed now.  I'm just wondering now, will the chrome plating people, re-plate mirrors fully assembled, minus the glass of coarse. I'll have to call around and find out I guess.  Anyone have any further info, please "chime-in"and Merry Christmas

A guy on e-bay was selling one awhile ago and it had numbers "ink stamped" in yellow.  Number was : GM# 3938689   That's what I have here...hope it helps you.    Don
That's the correct number according to the 69 AIM, UPC D80 sheet A1. You didn't happen to save the ebay photo(s) did you? Would be interested to see the ink stamp.
No, I did not save photo...I wish I would have....Don

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Burnished brown Z/28's on: December 14, 2014, 07:09:45 PM
My father was a dealer in the 50-70's.  Select vehicles often had vinyl tops installed to provide ADP.  (additional dealer profit).  Although unusual to have brown vinyl top on Z/28.  Rarely have I heard of a Z/28 to receive an aftermarket vinyl top unless there was a either a defect or a warranty claim.  Nevertheless, I also was the proud owner of Z/28.  As a college student I ordered a new 1969 Burnished Brown Z/28 with white stripes...best color ever!  Interior in my car had black carpets & dash with white seats and door panels.  Also it had a dealer installed under dash 8 track player; wood grain dash; front and rear speakers, tinted glass, cross ram in the trunk (never installed and sold with the car); cowl induction hood, spoilers front and rear and it did not have a console. Also, it also had a factory installed 1970 Z/28 steering wheel and the car was built in Norwood, Ohio.  Unfortunately I sold the car to pay for grad school and would love to have the car back. I trust that it is a survivor...

KobeSauce, I have to reply to your short story relating to a 1969 Camaro Z/28 in Burnish Brown/with Brown Vinyl top.  That vey car you described was my first "hearts desire" back in the day.  A fellow man ordered it, (1969 Camaro Z/28 w/Brown Vinyl top) and got drafted in the Army to fight a war in Vietnam.  The car sat on the lot into the 1970 model year, and I thought if I waited long enough, I could strike a bargain.  Well, long story short, I waited to long, and some lucky fellow spotted this shining gem and bought it.  This has been the only such car I have ever come across.  All other Camaro with this color, (Burnish Brown) do not have vinyl tops.  This color is still my favorite.  I now own a 1969 Camaro SS/RS Garnet Red 4-speed Big Block Camaro.  Hope you find you dream car someday...........Don

We all here understand it hard to say "goodbye" to your first love.  But just remember, you'll always have those memories of this car "forever".  It hard to let go of a ride after years of hard work and sweat.  Been there done that too.  Someday you'll find another, that you'll have to have, and the process will begin again.  Happy Holidays!    Don
