It is not hard but you MUST have an obsession for details to have a good end result.
Most folks are intimidated but if you take your time, make sure you are in a warm place so the covers are supple, and have a good pair of hog ring pliers, and a set that are at an angle you can do it with no issues. Just take your time. Study the originals as you tear them down, take lots of pictures for reference.

Yes Mike it is only the VIN is checked. Not all manufactures even used trim tags.

Well you have a few options.
Use a cooling additive.
Change timing advance to manifold that will help.
Check that the water pump impeller isn't all chewed up.
 
Since it is not a factory engine what type of fan and shroud are being used.
How many rows are on the factory radiator and was it a 396 big block car to begin with or is the radiator small block based.

Top notch, quality work.

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did all 69Z28 cowl induction breathers have a flat bottom ? on: September 12, 2013, 09:31:21 PM
There has always been unconfirmed speculation and theories by many that late August, September and November production end Camaro builds at Norwood were forced to adopt the Chevelle ridged bottom air cleaner base as the stocks of the Camaro flat bottom design were exhausted. Examples put forward as factory originals have not always survived testing and several have turned out to be Chevrolet service replacements which had the Chevelle ridge design after 1970 regardless of application and part numbers. Many "original" were added after factory as the ducted hood became widely popular as an aftermarket speed part and found its way onto 68, and 67 models. Several mid and late September 1969 Camaro builds still have flat bottoms. Anything is possible. We will never know for sure.

Dave - flat for Camaro production. 70 Chevelle had ridges and so do the reproductions. Here is a great thread over at TC to reference http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54696

Looking good based on your photos. Crawl under and look for rust if it is a road salt state, or storm Sandy states. Just a few things to restore the interior such as correct steering wheel, loose the aftermarket tachometer and remove or add back the missing woodgrain dash (drivers side has it pass side does not). But all in all a honey of a 69.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need help on IDing a 69 RS-SS ??? on: September 07, 2013, 11:17:04 AM
So if she is true and you do pull the trigger are you going to restore her to the original specs of 711 - standard black interior, 72 Hugger Orange with B black vinyl top?

56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Need help on IDing a 69 RS-SS ??? on: September 07, 2013, 09:53:31 AM
No there won't be any info on the trim tag to support the born with RS/SS for your build date X codes were not being stamped so a visual inspection is the only verification.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Amp gauge problem on: September 06, 2013, 10:04:04 PM
Yup. Check battery with your multi meter first then swap the leads on the gauge.

Gary I think the front carpet and columns were Chevrolet installed. Rear carpet was Fisher.
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Carb numbering on: September 03, 2013, 08:36:13 PM
It is possible your was replaced during the recall for the Hot Slot carb fire issue. When you remove the carb next look and see if the slot in the manifold was filled or the ends fitted with plugs. That would most likely be why you have the service dated so close.

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...

Too bad 4k then 40k now maybe if she was in good shape and you had managed to hang on to her.
