Also look at the needles of the service parts but they look to be silver as well.  Interesting..  


Gary (69Z28-RS) is there any ink stampings on either your original gauges or the ones you bought at the swap meet?

As for cleaning I would use q-tips and alcohol.  But not on the printed surfaces.  Just soapy water & q's for that. Just make sure to get all the water out or it can cause damage to the windings on the gauges long term.


Anyone else out there that has ORIGINAL gauges take a pic of the faces?  Doesnt matter at this point if they are still in the car or not.  I want to know if the brushed look or painted/coated look was interchanging..  Meaning more than one supplier.

Ill have to look in the X33 & L78 cars to see how their faces are now..   Hmmmmm

Hey Darrell, the top two look like my gauges. The faces look like brushed stainless. The amp gauge COULD be a service replacement, maybe??? I don't  think they are reproductions in any case. Those wouldn't have Made in USA on them. I'm sure there will be others posting to confirm. I often wondered if there was more then one supplier myself.

Good point.  Another thing to note is that the color of the needles are different.  Fuel gauge needle was painted before being peened were as the amp need was painted after.

Ive got a couple gauges and I want to know for certain that they are original and not repops.  Is there anything that stands out?  Only thing I see is that these have Made in the USA where I see repops that do not say that.  Also the style of rivet looks different.  Also there is a difference between the gauge faces; fuel is bare and the amp looks to be painted or coated silver..??..   Thoughts?

Actually, 1969 Camaros with a 3-speed manual without a console did have a reinforcement ring.   Smiley

Paul

Wonder why.  Its not like the console gave the floor any support.   Huh

Nevermind.  After rereading your post you say without console.  I need my eyes checked.. Cry

Ill make you a deal.  Ill come down to "Alabamy" and help you get yours going for trade for that 55 Nomad.. Shocked   Grin


Edit:

You know you have the same offer as Steve or anyone for that matter in this region.  Just might be a little harder for me due to the distance.   Grin

The Z will get assembled one day - hopefully by me. Too long a stretch like it is.

Regards



Ill put it together for you and might even let you drive it every once and a while.   Grin  Seriously though, you know you can ask me anytime if you need any help.  I want to see if cruising again too.!!.

I like to kick back and choose which one I'm gonna start today, only I don't want to mess up the laser alignment of the tire treads on the floor. LOL -


If that was my garage there would be a bed over in the corner.  Cause that's were I'd be sleeping..  Not by choice...  Unless it was all Camaros then it would be my choice..  Lol

You are correct about the ring.  I was looking at my 68 when I typed that.  And now that you mention it I do see the clip hole in the tunnel now too.  But that could have been drilled after the fact.  Still a lot of questions on this car that make you raise an eyebrow.
402  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z on ebay - twin on: February 03, 2014, 09:11:54 PM
Hard to tell but I do not see a speedo hole or holes for the clips.  Surprised no one else noticed this..

No trans hole.



Now theres a hole and its too far back.



No reinforcement ring.





2 possibilities.

1.  Rebodied car
2.  Faked car and found all the parts.
3.  The tunnel was replaced.

Also Im not 100% convinced that the body wasnt an A/C car.  Hard to tell and it might be the lighting but it looks like metal work on the top of the cowl.

Do an advanced search and check the sold box and then do a search to see what items have sold for in the past.   Cool
404  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 68 factory air on: February 03, 2014, 01:57:46 PM
Just food for thought.  I had a complete system , minus the box and evap core for sale yesterday and I didnt have the first looker..  I also have a 68 compressor and dryer with brackets and have not had one person looking for a setup.  Your guesstimate is as good as mine.  I would say $2-300ish.. Huh  Maybe more maybe less.  I know there is a box on epay right now and they have it starting at $500 with 0 bids..
