Chick can't thank you enough for the great story and pictures. Really an amazing survivor. Can't wait to see more. Did the original owner ever start it in the last 19 years?

I came across a picture of my clip today taken after I washed the firewall but before I removed the splash shield. Just for reference. George

My 11C big block AC car does not have the vin at the ac hole. Does have the cowl top one.
I found my hidden firewall vin under the AC hole, very faint stamping, it is a Nor 69 11A BB. George

Thanks, George. I read where there are some felts available, that are "show" quality and even have the rubber flap on the rear. I am very concerned about getting something I will not be happy with. Sounds like yours would be acceptable without giving a fortune, which I don't have right now. That is kind of what I was hoping to get as far as feedback. I remember reading your refrenced post now. If you feel they are ok, then that is good enough for me. I'll just make sure my tail panel is not Gloss! lol.
Ko-lek-tor, I have been looking for the manufacturer name of the better felts, I think it was "Re-pro Parts" but can't verify it yet. If I find it I will let you know.
I don't understand your comment about the tail panel, could you explain. George

I ran into this problem when mice chewed up my nos felts. I bought outer quarter felts from HBC that fit well, were very close to my nos felts, but had a sharp blunt end. Here is a link to how I modified them and another approach also. George

Roy or anyone that might have an answer. This question was asked earlier in this thread. I went back and re read and do not see where it was answered.

I have heard that the dealerships have always had exchange programs with other dealers. I'm sure if a customer came in and was only interested in a certain color or option and it wasn't on the lot that the dealer had other dealers to call and I assume this might have happened often. If this did happen wouldn't one's original, authentic POP or window sticker with selling dealership listed be different than the one the NCRS, GM records are going to show?

The factory filled out only the top portion of the POP, the other info was labled or written in by the selling dealer. Picture of POP found on Google. George

Here is the picture of the stricker, it was bear steel as found. George

Steve, I would be in for two in grey if the holes are correct. Other than that they look really close. George

Ed thanks for the info, that is great news that I might be able to find history beyond 30 years ago. My history trail stops at a used car lost around 1983. George

LVN 67 I wasn't sure if I had refinished the bracket, and I did, here is a current picture but I do remember it was a dark phosphate finish with light surface rust.         Hope that helps you. George
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct finish for T-400 switch Bracket on: January 14, 2014, 08:31:53 PM
I am doing some underhood clean up and paint and was wondering what the correct finish is for the T-400 switch bracket? It was black, and I blasted it back to bare metal. Just wondering what finish it should be. Thanks.    Smiley
The bracket on mine I believe was dark phosphate. I think it was pretty nice and didn't have to refinish it. I'll look for a picture for and confirm it. George
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Undercoating on inside of quarter panel ??? on: January 10, 2014, 07:41:29 PM
The 68's seem to have a more definite vertical edge at the start of the application but a little more random spray on the horizontal edges. I have seen original low milage 69's with a more random pattern but a defined edge near the rear marker lamp. 1st picture is a 5k 69, 2nd is a 30k 69, 3rd is how I sprayed it. I think you can see the same edge in JohnZ's rt quarter picture. Since we are looking in trunks does anyone have an extra rear wire harness clip I pointed out? George

I used the 3m black body schutz for the sound deadner in the trunk & wheel wells. It looks like a good match to the factory stuff. You can apply it in a light or heavy coat if you prefer. George
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Floor drain plug direction - face up or down? on: January 08, 2014, 08:28:53 PM

I left my plug that was loose, sit in a solvent last night, and took another look today.   The stamping on it is   'H 3 6'..  my car was build week 38...    (what does the H represent?..  the mfg?)..
[/quote]
Gary, I believe it was John H mentioned the letter designated the stamping plant it was produced at. George

Chick I think you nailed it with the paint rather than ink. I have seen allot of variations in how the edge of the stamps vary due to the angle & pressure of the inspector. I think yours came out great. Here is a comparison I did to my original stamps. George
