All,

Planning on putting the sound deadening material on the trunk floor under the mat. Can I assume that from the floor up, to the drip rails, that the speckled paint was used to include inner fender well, back of back seat bracing, structure between inner fenders and trunk lid hinges, etc...?

Thanks.

More solid advice. The back seat seems to be a more challenging proposition. Where is a good local place to grab the hog rings and angled pliers? Is that something Lowe's would have?

You know... she is a professional seamstress... could probably use that skill set...

Thank you very much! My wife says, "Just pay the guy!" (kinda cool actually to have that kind of support).

I also did find two 20+ minute videos on youtube by National Parts Depot where they do a pretty detailed job on a pair of '67 deluxe seats no less.

I think I am going to give it a shot.

Really appreciate the guidance.

Any thoughts/recommendations on whether I should tackle the re-upholstering of my deluxe seats considering the fact that I have never done it before? Is there a knack that only the pro's have or can a guy watch a youtube video and figure it out?

I have the new cushions and seat covers already. I also have the hooks and pliers needed.

A local guy, who is very reputable, told me that for him to do it, with me providing all materials, would run me $225 for the front seats.

Thoughts?
Thanks,
Matt

I did not know... what are 't-tags'?

First off, I must have been hallucinating... I am REALLY certain that I really did pull three sets of seatbelts out of the back, yet I can only find only four sets at the moment. However stuff is all over the garage.

My glove box shows 5 seat-belts. I have posted several photos. The first are from my car, appearing to be non-deluxe belts, but they were retractors up front.

I next posted what Classic Industries 'says' is correct.

My simple discrepancy is that if Classic is correct, I have a non-SS tire pressure sticker in the car with some really solid evidence that I have an SS. In addition to the trim tag, the rear-end matches as a 12-bolt as close as they can match. It had 3:31 non-posi gears (standard for Powerglide). The Powerglide tranny had a 21 tooth speedo gear and the valve body was date stamped Oct 66, exact same month as the intake manifold. Chrome valve covers, air cleaners and oil fill along with intake survived from the original car. Tracked car back to 1969, via last owner.

Hope the pics help. Will have to post several times.

When I was a kid in the mid-70s, my dad was serving in the army in Germany. Right up the street in Spokane, WA, 1/2 block away, a guy had a '69 pace car, for sale. He wanted $4k for it. My Mom wanted it sooooo bad and kept contacting my Dad for permission to buy it. He never gave that permission...

This is a bit more interesting. I was wrong and reversed the data. Mine is the early year car and did come with 5 seat belts and does have the glove box tag for the earlier models listing five people.

I found though that the SS model was to have tire pressure increased by 2 lbs (both cold and hot) for the SS model. My tire pressure decal shows it to be a non-SS car, though the preponderance of evidence shows the care was an SS (all sheet metal clearly original, down to original paint as the base paint, '4P' on the trim tag, original 12-bolt and powerglide with the car(ruling out the 327/4spd/12bolt 4P combination), gas cap, horn cap, all original 'ss' trim pieces, all pieces clearly aged with the vehicle when I pulled it out of a storage building in Montana. Hadn't be licensed since '87.

With the link you provided it looks like they want me to contact to help with data. Is that your read? (3 seatbelts in the rear seat)

Actually, as I continue to sleuth... the increased weight was due to the addition of one person per number of seat belts in the car versus increased strength springs.

Though my car shows a build in 11B, the sticker in the glove box is still there and shows 5 pax, 950 lbs (after 16 Nov '66). It did come with five seatbelts.

Thank you very much! Amazing Camaro you have there.
