Check the sheetmetal for a dimple. Not sure if 67 is the same location as 69 but expect it is in the neighborhood but will wait for clarification before posting pics. The hole is only wide enough for the harness connector to pass through and the grommet plugs the hole.

Just as an FYI - By now all of you who are also members at Team Camaro should have received an email from the AutoGuide administrators with your password reset. There is also the notice posted on all the sites that all the membership data had been stolen back in Feb from all the hundreds of car enthusiast sites Autoguide manages including Team Camaro, Team Chevelle, Team Nova, Team Impala, Team GTO, and Team Chevy to name only a few.

The information stolen included your signup IP address, email and user name and password. While you may say big deal whats that going to get them? It could be the final piece of information someone needs to complete the file they already had on you. Humans are animals who while possessing a unique brain, we don't use it that often when we should and we tend to use the same lame password on all our sites, and now someone has it along with the ip address of your connection, which may be enough to track other sites you have gone to, and unlock your information especially if you use the same user id or similar along with the same lame password - a password that anyone could figure out based on other information you have already shared maybe on Facebook etc.

So while you may think the new password strength standard is ridiculous, it is the new industry standard for web data, and I have more restrictive rules in place at my job, where the passwords changes every 45 days and any used password can not be used ever again. So the TC password is a piece of cake.

If you were like a ton of folks and used the same password as Team Camaro on other websites, I STRONGLY recommend you take an evening and change all of them to unique passwords for that particular site. You can use the same base six characters, then make the next six unique to that site. You can also use an encrypted app to store all your passwords, just don't forget the password to the password keeper. ;)

If any one has not gotten their password reset email and are now locked out of our site, first check your spam folder, and if not there drop me a line with your username and current valid email account and we will make sure a reset makes it to the email.  A lot of people had old no longer active email accounts on file and the reset emails bounced or ended in spam folders.

I very rarely use that site. Just doesn't work good with my phone and finally found the classifieds geez

Hey Bill depending on the operating system of your phone, the autoguide app for IOS and Android works very well and is very very simple in its design and presentation. I can load the regular website - new skin  - on safari and be able to actually browse it on my iPhone.  It adapts down to the correct screen size. The old format skin just was impossible to browse with my screen size.

General Discussion / Re: Your "twin" Camaro. Is it possible?
« on: March 02, 2016, 04:20:02 PM »
The former Chevy dealer I hung out with back in the day would disagree with you. Z11s were dogs to get rid of primarily for two reasons: even a lightly equipped Z11 listed over $4,000 and many people found the paint/trim unappealing. $4,000 was a ton in those days.

A family member bought a new '69 in October and the dealer still had their Z11.

That may have been the case in the day William, I have no disagreement with that, however someone had to be ordering them (dealer or customers) regardless of their appeal in 69. I was commenting on that of the survivors today they tend to be the 350 manual and the 396 auto groupings. So if dealers were ordering them were they using some standard GM guidelines or just using what their location normally found as desirable? In any event it really has nothing to do with twins as defined as one vin in LOS and same vin for NOR. :)

As far as Z11 twins go there are a few here and there with options that would make you say someone ordered it special that way. But the dealers must have liked 396's with auto trans with console gauges as well as 350's with 4 speed and console gauges. I see tons of these combinations at shows. Funny when shows stack these up in one area. Fun to find the subtle differences. Power vs. manual tops, wood steering wheels, radio options, power windows and A/C round out the list of common Z11 options. Never seen one with liquid tire chain, light monitoring, or trailer hitch. :)

Dave I'm willing to guess that the stock of the 69 - 80 style connectors is newer and as soon as the 65-68 GM corporate blocks dwindle the next batch of replacements will be more universal.

I thought that you and I had talked about the creation and use of universal spade fittings - barrel that inserts into the crimp, crimp and solder, then attach lead as usual to the spade end. My only fear would be clearance behind but having never used either the panel or the universal fittings which can be easily made.  I may have this conversation confused with someone over at TC, or one of the general GM forums at AutoGuide.

In any event this topic and the re-purposing of connections in the bulkhead connector are a few of the electrical item project documentations I have been tinkering with for a revised tech section at TC.  I'm sorry I thought I had asked you if I could use your photos as well. In any event both of you have saved the harness and replaced the panels which was the goal. I'll have to cough up some cash and buy one and see if the universals that were presented to me would work and fit behind the panel. Thanks Dave.

Mike - Great documentation. Mind if I grab the photos and post as a sticky over at Team Camaro?

LOL I have that same Classic Camaro catalog. Back in the the day they were the only nationwide restorer supply catalog I could find. I look forward to seeing your update. You should start a build thread over at Team Camaro and then enter her in the ride of the month contest when your Dad gets his surprise ;)

Well then I can say IMHO there is nothing wrong with doing the complete job to install the gauge option and leaving it that way after your restoration. That is as long as it is right and done to factory standards which means Tachometer and center Clock are installed. Unless you have all the original paperwork including invoice then maybe I wouldn't add the set. But in most cases done right it will increase value.
