706  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Wheel Well Plugs - Before or After Undercoating? on: December 19, 2012, 05:31:55 PM
 I just checked my 67 4B LOS and all plugs are clean of any coating.
In both wheel wells  there is a large thick clump of undercoating and the plugs look like they were installed with the coating still wet because they sit within the clump but are not covered by it.

I sent an inquiry to the seller at 6AM on Dec. 16th.

He responded on the 18th as follows:
"I thought when I looked at this car that it wasn't a correct Z28 so therefore I didn't list REAL Z or Matching Numbers? It's just a nicely built Camaro"


LOL.....after reading this, the term "plausible deniability"  popped into my head. Smiley

 Despite what the ad now states....Below in itself is still misleading and would have gone unchallenged if John didn't call him out on it....I suspect the dealer doesn't realize its context is questionable.

***BLACK BOOKS CPI(CARS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST) BOOK-COLLECTIBLE VEHICLE VALUE GUIDE(AUGUST 2012 BOOK)....#2 CONDITION....PRICE OF $82,875.00!!!!!!           <----- This would give a subliminal perception to look at the car as a real Z sitting at this value. The wording above clearly is meant to cause the reader an inaccurate perception that he/she is looking at a real Z. I've seen many of these advertising methods on eBay when it comes to NOS  hoses with stampings. Read twice and you will see it is actually NOS hose but was stamped with the correct markings vs. an original hose with factory stamped markings.

***I JUST ADDED A COUPLE PICTURES OF THE STAMP ON THE FRONT OF THE BLOCK. AS YOU CAN SEE IT ENDS IN "DZ"!!  ......   <------ this by itself implies it is a true DZ block. Clearly deception to word it this way.

Good call John!

I'm puzzled...... if it was a real SS why it had the RS gas cap and horn button.
Plus the rear blackout bottom edge is below the bumper brackets and the door strikers have paint on them.
Nice car otherwise.

 The pictures may have been blocked by my company firewall.
The ad states it was restored but the RS package was an addition.
At least the seller was up front about that.

Thanks,
Mike

hmmmm....is it my web session or did the pictures vanish from that URL?
I waited a while and no picture loads except for the one at the bottom

But, as Daniel stated, it shows a Tonawanda plant code instead of Flint. That's a huge red flag.
This car will be targeted towards the real sucker. I can only image how that person will feel the day he/she learns of their mistake and realized they were duped.
I still have that bridge in Brooklyn for sale if anyone is interested  Wink

 That's a title and doesn't tell much. POP is Protect-O-Plate that lists what the car came with.

715  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Upper control arm shaft - How important is this surface ? on: December 14, 2012, 10:54:49 PM
  Your understanding is correct. The bushing is locked when assembled.
The picture of the shaft surface looks fine. As long as the new bushings fit on the shaft without rocking then you can reuse them.

 Hmmm...... Isn't the straight 7 number font wrong for a 69 trim tag? Shouldn't it have a curve?

717  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Trunk / Quarter drop off panel plugs on: December 12, 2012, 10:45:52 PM
Hi George,

  I was in the garage tonight so I took a picture of a 67 quarter drain hole. I *think* they are the same as 69(?)  Huh
Below are 3 pictures of my original drop panel (they are galvanized under the primer). I took most of the hole measurements with a digital caliper.
The plug is rubber (for 67 anyways). The notch is actually square but the seam sealer is in the way.

Hope this helps!

718  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Harmonic Balancer Bolt & Pulley Bolts Finish on: December 12, 2012, 09:04:42 PM
I checked the survivor 67 BB and it's phosphate on balancer and pulley bolts and washers.
My other 67 BB I gave a black oxide finish in the 80's because they appeared black then and recently phosphated them during the current re-restoration.

and...Happy Holiday!

 I don't see any pictures.

 Worse comes to worse and there is no approval (which I highly doubt) I'll get mine made locally and give them to me as gifts  Wink
