Restoration / Latch causing back of hood to move to side?
« on: July 06, 2016, 11:05:07 PM »
I got my hood on today and it doesn't fit too bad and the stripes line up until the hood is latched and you can see the rear of the hood move toward the side enough, the stripes are off in the back. I messed with the Latch some and about all that moved was the front. Anyone have any ideas?

Originality / DId a 69 Z use the capacitor on the coil?
« on: June 16, 2016, 11:27:35 AM »
I copied this from a post Danny made. John left this reply. I am pretty sure i had seen them with the capacitor but i didnt find it in the AIM. Thanks!
coil bracket with the "notch" is not unique to the Z/28; originals don't have the notch, although the eBay sellers want you to believe they did, so they can claim they're "rare". The one in the photo is clearly from another application, as it has the screw to attach the radio noise suppresson capacitor, which was never used on a '69 Camaro.

Originality / Bolt for heater hose clip in alternator
« on: May 07, 2016, 12:50:37 PM »
I am looking for the bolt that goes in the alternator bracket that holds the heater hose clip. Mine was gone. It looks like a recessed head and a self tapping thread.  Amk does not have this bolt and was wondering if anyone ran across it use someplace else? It looks like a smaller version have a brake line bolt

I found where someone is making new ones for a big block but has anyone seen new small block brackets?

Originality / 69 Rear bolt alternator, washer?
« on: April 24, 2016, 01:09:53 PM »
The AIM calls the thin head bolt a bolt assembly. should it have a flat or lock washer on it? It didnt look like it took much torque, I wouldn't think it would be a captured lock washer.
Thanks guys

Restoration / Trick for tightening tail lights?
« on: April 02, 2016, 01:41:54 PM »
I was trying to install the tailights in the trunk panel and not having any luck on getting them to stay tight and not turn. I didnt find them in the aim either. I am trying my original studs and noticed the tab on one had twisted itself up. is there a way they should be orientated so they catch in the hole?

Originality / original coil spring tag size and build date
« on: March 28, 2016, 01:38:40 AM »
I am trying to find new tags for my springs and the first set I bought are too narrow. Mine are an inch wide on an 03D car.  The ones I bought were copied off an original set. If you have your originals, how wide and when was your car built?

Originality / clutch Z bar finish
« on: December 30, 2015, 01:20:32 AM »
I was wondering if my Z bar got short changed in the plating vat? Is this normal? looks like part of it was sticking out of the mix!

Restoration / advice on painting cowl
« on: December 26, 2015, 03:35:05 AM »
I am having trouble getting my cowl white to look right. I didnt like what the painter did and now struggling myself! I want to have a natural overspray without a tape line. So far I drifted too much down on the firewall black and the next time I backtaped to where I was happy with drift and it looked good but the tape caught enough drift, it directed paint back to the firewall and left a faint line under my nice edge. So I am ready for my next and hopefully last attempt. I have the gun at a 45 angle to the cowl and spraying from the windshield  to the front of the car.
has anyone found a neat trick to spray the cowl and not have a tape line or overspray all over the firewall?
I am thinking I might try a piece of cardboard in front of the cowl and hold it like 1/8 of an inch from the firewall. this might be like my back tape but if the cardboard is angled away from the firewall it shouldnt leave a line. I will add a couple pictures. one of how I hold the gun the other of my cardboard idea. if anyone has a good idea I am ready! 

General Discussion / red on red 69 Z at mecum
« on: December 14, 2015, 01:21:35 AM »

I read the EO car was going to be there so I thought I would look the cars over. I ran across this one.
It says its mostly original paint but sure has alot of shine. I also thought it looked to be fluffed quite a bit under the hood. PBT of both colors, crayon on the fiewall. Its alot of red

Originality / smog pump bracket to block bolts
« on: November 17, 2015, 03:39:05 AM »
My block still had the original bolts in it and I took them out and now I cant find them!!  Does anyone have any record of what went in there ? I looked the AIM over pretty good and didnt find them in there either. They are the two that might be 3/8 by an inch

Originality / any ideas where this wire goes?
« on: November 04, 2015, 04:10:52 AM »
I found this with my front harness and not sure where it goes. may not be in front but thats only harness I removed. its 18 inches long and I assume a ground. one end is broken off and other end has odd terminal. I decided I've looked long enough!

Originality / Alternator bracket color
« on: September 21, 2015, 01:56:03 AM »
I wasn't sure what this bracket that goes on the back is called but wanted to make sure it was 60% gloss black?  Jerry's book calls it spacer and it looks black.

Originality / Lower windshield clip bolt
« on: September 12, 2015, 05:34:21 PM »
I am not having any luck so thought I would ask. The clip that holds the lower windshield molding on, appears to be held on by a hex head bolt or screw.  Mine seem to be missing. Anyone have any idea on are they in the body manual or a place to get them? I have not seen any glass info in the aim and not sure where my fisher body book is.
