391  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Black Primer Underside of Body 69 Z/28's on: June 23, 2014, 10:46:46 AM
There's a good thread on this but I can't find the link I thought I saved. I think this is Gary's car. Mine was similar. Had grey in tunnel and foot board areas. I believe black was over the grey. I used sikkens rally black over ppg epoxy primer on my car. Sikkens is pricey but excellent product.

I believe that is George's car (NoYenko).

Post a pic of the code off the rearend & of the trim tag too.  Doesn't look like there is a plate there unless there is serious undercoating on it.  Id get out the scrapper.

welcome Newb geb78. You say the engine is original? HAcode? How could it be anything but an SS? Of course, the first thing that will be asked on this site (so, I will go ahead and ask) is to provide pictures of the Trim Tag and engine stamps/castings/dates/all partial VINs. Hopefully, you have studied all the related information on the site already and can conclude on your own what you have since there is so much information that is presented so well by our site administrators and founders with more detail  topics(and sarcasm/humor) provided by our knowledgable members, here, in the forum. Agree, your pic is hard to determine the "plate". It looks more to be an outline of where a rear ex. hanger was located, but the holes are way too big, so more pics needed, maybe cleaning off that area.


Beat me to it..

I remember the car.
Block is a restamp.

And it looks it too!!!

Don't like the alt stamp.

Alt is a restamp IMHO.

I got this in the mail today.  From the Capitol chevrolet in Austin TX.  It used to have studs on the back but were broken off & adhesive applied.  This is just another piece to the puzzle on the 68.  Very happy

Too bad its not Hugger Orange..    Roll Eyes


That poor car needs to be led out back and shot.  Or maybe all the previous owners...

It uses crushed glass and I think a rust inhibitor.  I want to buy one but I dont think the little lady would like me quitting my day job. Tongue

Gotcha.  Thought it was from his last post.  It does look like bare metal.

Oaklyss, in that last picture, is the horizontal area on the underside of the rocker bare metal? Can't tell, could be the flash effect, but it looks like there isn't even primer on there.

I think you are getting the flash along with the orange reflecting on the black giving it that bare metal look.  You can see the line where the black ends (or the bare metal looking area) and orange begins.

On the right you will see the color scales vs temp.  Black and then purple is the coolest.  This scale will change once it sees temps above or below its calculated range and will recal for that.  I tried this again later on last night and got the pad extremely warm (around 200*F) and I allowed it to cool and took a few shots of it and still could not see anything materializing.  I need to try this with an engine that is running and use the tripod and do the 15 min photo cycles.  I believe it will work I just need to nail down the process.
404  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: whats up with this Z on: June 18, 2014, 09:11:06 PM
Id need to see a better pic of the tag but first glance it looks o k....  Horrible description with no info about engine, trans or rear.  Also no pics of trunk, floors and any of the undercarriage.  Maybe its full of bondo..??..
405  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ stamp on: June 18, 2014, 06:12:54 PM
Ok I have attempted the TIC trick and I see nothing.  Maybe I am not getting it hot enough before letting it cool.  I should have grabbed the tripod but forgot it at work.  Also this is a bare block and it may need the entire engine brought to temp.  IDK  I plan on trying again later on when the temps in the garage drop below 90...
