 Looking at this picture posted in reply #14 I see what looks like black paint over spray as indicated by the red arrow where the wiper motor is. I had asked this question before on CRG if there should be firewall blackout over spray in that area and the reply was no and the reasoning is the hole was covered. I found it odd in a way that a line worker would take time to cover a hole and yet the top edge blackout varies widely from car to car even though its stated there was a type of a cover overlaid on the cowl top.
This picture sure looks like black over spray to me.

 As I understand it, those extra stamps on the VIN tag was done by the dealer when they received it. I don't remember where I read that though. I have seen those extra stamps a couple of times on NOR cars too.

The rubber lines have different # of ribs to indicate which supplier.
Kurt,

 That makes sense about the number of lines. Probably the same for the windshield washer hoses too?
IYO, do you think the 3 line and 7 line could have co-existed in the same model year? Also, I would think different suppliers between NOR and LOS?

 Here is the LI Corvette 7 rib hose. The white stripe is not within the ribs.
Notice the label for the LI hose is for 63-67. Maybe after 67 is was different -or- there were different versions depending on the supplier?
Same question for the while stripe, was it by chance where it was applied to the hose?

I understand, just wanting to know if it is available still.
I see the 3 rib is on eBay at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/60-81-GM-Vacuum-Hose-Correct-White-Stripe-5-32-with-3-ribs-SOLD-BY-THE-FOOT-/200908713411?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model%3ACamaro&hash=item2ec717adc3&vxp=mtr

22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Accurate taper mono springs? on: September 23, 2014, 06:52:03 PM
 That's an interesting writeup for the spring restoration/custom making process.
Being my car will only be for local shows and cruze nights I'll probably go with the Eaton or Camaro Specialties (probably Eaton made?) replacement mono's and
put the original springs on the shelf for re-arching using the heat process later.

Thanks for the replies!

Great pic....how many raised ribs? I have a reproduction from LI Corvettes and on this repro I count 7 raised ribs.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Kevin,

  Thanks for chiming in. I was looking at the Eaton site and it explained the two ways to re-arch a spring. One was cold setting and the other involved heating the metal and reshaping it. In theory the latter is supposed to be a better solution. Do you know what process was used on yours (cold vs. hot)?
  So far I am only able to find springs with the thickness taper but not with the wide side taper. My concern is the fit at the shackle ends with the non-taper design.
Looking a Eaton's site they state "Thatís why our springs are built from the original factory blueprint" but their mono spring doesn't have the wide side taper. I assume it would be in the blueprint! This URL shows their hot process, it's pricey though  http://www.eatonsprings.com/rearching.htm

Thank You,
Mike

 When you get time could you post a picture of the ribs?

Thanks!
Mike

Darrell,

 Are there any ribs running the length on the vacuum hoses?

 If you want more samples then I'll add my '67 04B and 05B has the original covers s with the Use Delco Brake Fluid stamp.

 I got a chuckle out of "for entertainment purposes only" comment with the tags for sale.
Heck, for $150-$250 dollars that "entertainment" had better be walking, shapely and she better have a sexy voice  Cool

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Accurate taper mono springs? on: September 22, 2014, 06:27:29 PM
 I know in the past there were no reproduction mono springs with the correct taper per the CRG archives.
Does anyone know if there exists a true copy of a tapered mono these days? I have browsed and see replacements but no word if it is tapered both in thickness and length like the factor springs. My car is sagging 3/4" more on one side compared to the opposite and I can see the spring has flattened nearest the rear mounting perch.

Thank You,
Mike
30  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.
