Is the pic of the green Z an early 69 NOR or a LOS?  Hard to see in the pic.   Also assuming that both cars were originally flat hood cars as well?

I could be totally all wet, but on the fan shroud I see writing that appears to me to be a "T" with 12 8 67 below that, and -20 below that? Maybe I'm dreaming?


Good eye!

Maybe an upside down B with light amount of ink?

Mike

That could be a possibility but if you look just above the hood hinge spring you will see the B.  Plus look at the P & B on the other side.  You would be able to tell if it were the case.  At least I would think anyways.

could that be a splash apron piece that is askew?

Not sure but it looks metal to me..??..

I'm not completely up to speed on the PTB stamps. I understood them to be a rubber type stamp, not a stencil. So how does the P on the passenger side get backwards?

Excellent question!

Its done out of necessity sometimes because this area was so prone to rust but if there is anyway you can save the area around the VIN tag and factory rivets and only replace what you have to is what I would do. The cut out window for the VIN on the repop dashes stand out like a sore thumb to me. Whatever you decide to do take lots of pics of before and after to document.

Agreed

Create a book to take with you to show any and everything you want.  I did it for my 67 and plan on doing the other 2 at some point.

My NOR 69 Z with white stripes looks the same. One side of the cowl is mostly white, the other side is partly white.

How many NOR Z cars (also include 69 IPCs) have you seen with the entire cowl painted stripe color?

Here is the only one I had clean of the set of 4 that I have.  These are off a Oct of 1969 built 69 307

Based on the CT on the Fuel Mixture Control Valve - I believe it is an early 1968 Z28.
See the table here.
http://www.camaros.org/emissions.shtml#valves

And if that is the case, I am bit surprised there is a lack of white paint on the trim tag.


I realized the CT on the valve.  The lack of white on the tag makes me wonder if it is a LOS car.  & IF that is the case then when did they stop using the PBT stamps?

Ed Bertrand - as for before that I am uncertain.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 02, 2014, 02:15:33 PM
This appears to be a 68 Z from the pic, is there no such examples of 68's with the cowl having any white overspray?

There are plenty of examples of LOS Z cars.  My comment was more directed towards LOS cars not getting the "PBT" stamps vs NOR did and LOS cars had the entire cowl painted stripe color vs NOR only doing the pockets under the grates in the cowl panel.  This car seems to have the entire cowl painted stripe color and it has the "PBT" stamps.

I agree with both of what you guys are saying.  But I will respectfully disagree that this is the case with this photo.  You can see the flash point by the blower motor wire shadow along with the firewall whiteout from the flash just to the left.  Also note that the blower motor wire is on the bottom of the box like the 67 and later 68's have them on the top.


Edit:

There is something else I can not make out what is.  Looks like a bracket of some sort just in front of the heater box.  I thought it was part of the hood hinge but you can see it just to the left.

Yeah I know; scary when that happens.   Roll Eyes    By this picture it has a upper cowl painted all white which would make it seem like a LOS car.  But because there are no known LOS cars that have the "PBT" would this be a NOR car with an entire cowl painted or a LOS with "PBT"?

I like the 'Stang a lot. But, I own Camaros simply because I like them more :-)
Mike


That is probably the thought of just about everyone here.  If it werent for the Mustangs success; the Camaro may not have ever happened.

Ask Mike S for a pic of one of his cars.  I can not say for certain mine is painted correctly.  That was a detail I overlooked when painting my door tops & dash.
