The thing that puzzles me is don't the guys reproducing parts realize they could probably triple the price of their parts if it was exactly as original and people would buy them. Would you pay $60 for a correct bracket?  Many better parts I see are 80% correct but not 100%.  We are fortunate to have so many parts available. George.

My car is also an 11A and that was my fitting. I found some 68 date codes on my hoses like |2|4|4|8| Aug 31 1968. You might look under the insulators?
Could you tell me what your upper fan shroud bolt looks like or take a picture of it? Its nice to find another car built in the same week. George

So that appears to be a replacement fitting assemble as the originals had a crimp fitting on the hoses. 1967-68's had hose clamps like yours.
Here is a picture of a 69 crimp fitting. The reproduction muffler-hose assemblies are fairly close in appearance. George

Mike, can you post a picture of your hoses coming out of the compressor, a detail shot of the hose crimp might tell us more. George

Mike, I did not spray it but ill try to find out the answer. The car was painted Ohare Auto Body in Bensenville IL. I thought they did an outstanding job, other than covering up most of the lightly stamped date codes. But I can be slightly anal sometimes. George

Couple more shots.

Since this thread was brought up again I thought I would post some pictures of my floor after painting. I had found black on the bottom with grey primer overspray on the front 20". The slightly duller firewall blackout paint sprayed over the grey primer on the firewall vertical surface. The sides of the floor and rear frame rails received body color overspray. I could not figure out how to accurately reproduce the grey paint runs found at the firewall to floor seam so I didn't do that. George

I bought my date coded glass from Auto City Classic (http://www.autocityclassic.com) on both my Camaro & Chevelle and was really pleased with the results.
Mike there told me that no glass in pressed here in the states anymore. I was pretty specific on how the LOF code should read & look and it arrived as requested.
I didn't need any door glass. George

A February N66 equipped car kinda stretches the aforementioned January 8th deadline (if it was January the 8th) out there, doesn't it ? Car could have been ordered before the cancellation, obviously.
As not to confuse anyone the picture of the wheel I posted is not an N66 (SS Wheel) car.

James, looks great, I like the slightly duller paint finish. I think you nailed it. After run in it will look even better. I'd like to see more pictures of this car, its just after my build date. George
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 spare wheel on: May 23, 2014, 06:57:34 AM
I looked at a friends 30K Feb 69 car yesterday and took a picture of his rally spare for you guys. Very original unmolested car. Note the straps on the jack mast also. George
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 z/28 JL8 Camaro? on: May 21, 2014, 06:37:50 AM
The database has a number of JL8's in it. Right about 25%.
I know of 2 other 9N643xxx JL8's.
As I expected, not one of the cars in the db.
Kurt I don't understand what you meant, could you explain?  George

Chick, I really like the old photos and adds you posted. I have a Jack Douglass key chain I saved from early 70's. Thanks

Could we get a ground level, straight on side view?
lakeholme, I think this is what you were asking for, if not let me know, thanks.  George

Thanks for the complements guys, Ko-lec-tor asked me about the top shroud screw and I thought I would post my reply and get feed back from others. The shroud is original to the car and has no marking from a larger washer as you would typically see on a 69. In looking at the AIM there was a change in the screw on 10-10-68, if I read it correctly. That screw required a separate loose washer also. I assume my car didn't get the washer installed. I have seen this screw only on a few early cars. It could be they found out that the separate screw & washer was not working in assembly and went back to screw with captured washer. This is probably a point that would be questioned by a judge so I am curious what others have seen. George
