33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1969 Camaro Hood Hinges on: December 09, 2013, 11:09:45 AM
Hi Everyone!!  Got a question for you Camaro Gurus.  On the hood hinges, there is a large "rivet" that connects the pieces of hinge together.  On the "rivet" is a letter "K" that is stamped on it.  Does anyone know what this stands for???  Mfg. Co.  (Huh)  thanks!

Are you looking for one?

If you are, GM still sells them.

which is: GM# 3949798. (long spoiler)  The 68s had the short spoiler.  thanks!    Don
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Firestone vs. Goodyear Poly-glas tires on: November 19, 2013, 08:48:29 PM
I find this interesting..your the first to chime in on those tires.  I wonder if anyone has issues with the Firestone "Wide-O-Oval" tires.  I see alot of these on 69 Camaros. Does your car "wander" like mine, left to right, right to left?  Anyone out there having similiar issues with these tires please voice your facts.  thanks!  Don
I have the repro Firestone sports car 200 tires on my car. They ride like shit!
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Firestone vs. Goodyear Poly-glas tires on: November 14, 2013, 08:02:54 PM
Jeff, Where would you set the alignment at on my car ?  Alot of guys suggesting   1/8 toe in.  What are your final thoughts on this issue??  Don
I put the girl to bed for the season...
I hear ya.  They salted the roads here yesterday morning - I couldn't believe it.  This weekend is supposed to be in the 50's and I wanted to go for one last cruise.  Oh well.

Let us know what you find - and make sure to settle the suspension before checking the alignment.  You could actually loosen all the bolts now, bounce it up & down several times, then let it sit for the off season before tightening the bolts.

Jeff, Hey..hi there!  No, I did not check car's alignment.  I put the girl to bed for the season and its all zipped up in one of those "Car Jackets" I recently bought.  But yes, this will be on my hit list for the spring.  Car wants to fly but
there is to much wander at "high speeds".  I will post my findings and result here for everyone to see and chime in if they would like too.  Thanks to all of you for your helpful comments and advice...Don
Don-
Did you ever get a chance to check your current alignment specs?  I'd hate to see you change tires when all you needed to do was 'dial-in' the alignment.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Firestone vs. Goodyear Poly-glas tires on: November 12, 2013, 10:12:04 PM
Hi Guys!!!  Question:  Is anyone out there running "Firestone Sport Car 200" tires??  If anyone is, do they wander like the Goodyears do??  I'm just trying to get some feedback on these (firestones) before I go and dive into a different set-up on my front end, that has been suggested in previous CRG members replies.  Just want to say "thanks" for everyone's input on this matter.
Don

Thank You Sir!!!!

'Decker Manufacturing Corp'  (DMC)  but NO idea when your lug nuts were manufacturered, maybe you can research within their parts line?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Drive shaft color code on: October 29, 2013, 07:46:06 PM
I own a 69 Camaro with a 396/375 with a M-22 tranny.  Does anyone know what paint code color  the factory applied to the drive shaft for Big Block Camaros???   Thanks gang!!   Don
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Antenna - Rear Quarter on: October 29, 2013, 07:26:44 PM
Yes, that my question, When was a rear antenna installed at factory??  When option "U73" was selected?  I would assume.  Thanks
The Options PDF is always helpful on those kinds of questions.  Also look at D80 about the spoiler issue.
My 12D 68 does have U73.

Or are we all mistaking your question? Do you mean when it happened in the assembly process?
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: "DMC" markings on NOS lug nuts on: October 29, 2013, 07:21:42 PM
Hopefully someone out there will "chime in" with the correct info.  Thanks for the reply. 
I don't know what the DMC stands for, but as Kurt has said there were sometimes more than one vendor for the same part. I have a original waffle style set on my car, although I do not know if this would have been correct.
