1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Got Rust? on: September 21, 2014, 01:38:32 AM
 I've seen some rust buckets in my time but this one takes the lead role.
Looking at the grass below the car through the rusted floor boards reminded me of the Flintstones car.

Hello,

   Attached is an image from my '67 hardtop that has all original sheet metal. Its width is 46 14/16" from seam to seam as measured along the bottom edge with a metal tape measure. When you measure from edge to edge be aware the ruler will show a visual arch due to the panel surface curve and you can see that in the left corner of the picture.

PS: Excuse the primer dust as the car below it is being block sanded (the color is actually tahoe turquoise)  Grin

 I bought a new seal and reproduction yoke for my '67 12 bolt from the place below.
It fit with no issues.

Danny,

  How are you pushing the damper onto the crankshaft?

 Now we know what they are for, all that is needed is a grill body, a propane tank, some Nathans, burgers, steaks and a few brews and have a tail gate party and talk about the Ford and Mopar guys (they bash Camaro owners anyways).   Wink

"There is a 34 % chance it can reappear...."

That means there is a 66% chance it will not reappear, and those odds, my friend, are very favorable indeed.  Cheesy
I'm very glad to hear the great news!

 These look like cast iron gas stove manifolds.

8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: September 09, 2014, 11:04:35 AM
 All you will get for your money is an official looking document stating the car's born on date and the dealer and zone number it was shipped to. Nothing else is included.
No model info or anything along those line of identification.
  If you know the dealers name already then you will have the info you need. If the dealer is still in business and has the paperwork then you are way ahead most of us.
To my knowledge there is still a gap for '69 models.

 Just curious, what brand of clear is that? SPI by chance?

The car looks very nice. One comment, on the top of the cowl I have not seen two separate blackout areas like the painter has done. The two should be connected so there is no yellow gap between the two.

Jon,
  Was the cowl blackout unique for the Z-28 ?

  OK...so I spelled it wrong from memory. You got the idea though. I, along with many colleagues, have been part of the fallout from Ichan's past corporate dealings.
As for conspiracy theory....without going into specifics for legality reasons, believe me when I say there have been many questionable acts done by senior management with companies  I had dealing with that required legal investigation due to lawsuits brought about from government agencies. I know, I have been personally involved with collection of the eDiscovery data. And the last company I worked at did settle the lawsuits by forking out millions in penalties. So yes, some times there are business practices that are done along the fine line between legal and non-legal when a lot of potential money is at stake to be made, conspiracy or not.
  One last thing...my comments about the bogus bidders are more on the line with the sellers and not eBay management.

 OK.....work aside.....now I'm back to the regularly scheduled Camaro topics. Wink

... Is it me or do the bids on eBay look manipulated on this auction. Like he has his friends bidding the car up... eBay should crack down but they never will

Caveat Emptor my friends...

  I believe many of these eBay auctions have bogus bidders to jack the price up.
eBay will not crack down unless there a a blatant violation. In the end the senior management who manage eBay have to show a profit to their share holders in order to get their own stock options and bonuses otherwise major share owners like Carl Icon will begin to influence them (like with so many corporations people like him dealt with) so I'm sure they will tolerate certain practices as long as it isn't illegal, that you and I find not exactly kosher.

Hi Darrell,
 
    I thought that shot was from James. I can see how the covering looks like dark green now that you said it was a light coating of black.
Looks like the sprayer didn't lean into the trunk for coverage on the other side. Makes sense given the mass production quality of that time.
I studied the photo closer and see what looks like a heavier coat of black paint on the top edge only behind the weather strip?
That gives me a mental image of how the sprayer stood with the gun.

Mike

James,

   What do I see what looks like a two tone green line on the other side of the trunk seal?
I would think that would be black too.

Mike
