211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / z28 with white stripes, cowl pics on early 69 cars on: June 18, 2013, 07:48:10 AM
I am getting ready to get my car painted. Someone took a brush and painted the firewall, inner fenders, radiator shround (you get the idea) black.  I do not have a way to tell how far down the white that was sprayed under the cowl went. Right now it appears they raised where the black went up to the white on the cowl. I wonder if there could be burgandy between the white and black. I tried to wet sand and not much luck.  Here is a picture and would like to see others to compare how to finish mine. Leaving it white would look cleaner but I am thinking there could be some burgandy in there too. From the picture there couldnt be much burgandy if any. Thanks guys

I don't like either block stamp or the deck job
213  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Fuel Line Frame Rail Bracket Bolt on: June 17, 2013, 10:01:34 PM
The bolt on my 03D car is like top one, t and anchor,  I have it marked as the one with the clip at the tank.  The frame bolts are blunt with a notch out on the bottom. The head marking on them looks like a circle with ER inside. Little hard to read without glasses

My 69 Z did that and it had moved on the sleeve. They can be rebuilt or exchanged

I blued mine also along with arm that goes to frame. On mine the arm was clean enough you could see the dark finish. There was a nos one on eBay showing the color also.very easy to do and cheap!

Block is 4 days after mine. Mine has an unusual date cast of a109. It's a 661 also. My off-road  am has the 141 stamp also
217  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / sway bar bushings 69 Z on: May 18, 2013, 10:13:42 AM
I got 2 different sets of sway bar bushings from hbc and don't like either. My 03D has the fingered bracket. First I got the hole acts like at least 23/32 and I will have to trim since its too tall. The other is for the earlier bracket and not close. I am hoping to find something closer than these. Who knows these could be Moogs not sure. Anyone find any they liked?
218  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct 69 Z/28 Coil Springs on: May 12, 2013, 11:27:45 AM
I had a set of small block springs from HBC and the car sat almost as high as it does with the motor out. I looked up david pozzi's site and it has alot of good info with moog part numbers.  If your doing a z, they sat lower than a small block car.

My car has 12800 on it but drag racer/first owner messed with somethings. I have found neat inspection marks . This week I had the rear axle cover off and it had a lot of blue paint markings. Springs were a greenish yellow. I think a lot of my bolts are original but some hard to read. I have wondered if my car was stored someplace damp and if the guy was on stone roads. He's around but I have only talked to his son and he doesn't have a lot of info.

Poly bushings have been known to squeak. Would be a lot of work to change them out.
I agree on paint, matching numbers should be the correct color. I wouldn't buy a car in a color I didn't like matching numbers or not anyway

Any of these these ever appear or did they meet the crusher?
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / evaporust on axles on: May 02, 2013, 11:33:00 AM
Had some crude on end of a me shafts and sat the hub end in evaporust for a day. Rinsed them off and found a big blue paint dawb on the edge of the hub. Runs from one stud to the next. Evaporust is neat stuff
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 z28 rear brake backing plates on: April 21, 2013, 11:23:12 AM
Thanks Gary. Our springs are the same color. What gets me, I have some parts from hbc and springs are not the same color. I got wheel cylinders and knew they weren't delco but the 2 they sent don't match each other! Mine are fine inside and rebuilding them. I got a rebuild kit from ricks and their pictures look like the one they use for front matches my rears. Guy said sometimes the pics are wrong. What I got is like the picture, no rubber ends on springs. Very annoying. These places should know. I think the white number on my adjusters is 384. Wonder what that means. You can't mess with number it wants to come right off.

Thank you. My drums had never been off and welded themselves go the hub. I heard you could back them off but no hole .
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 z28 rear brake backing plates on: April 20, 2013, 09:08:28 PM
Haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.
I noticed on eBay plugs for an adjuster hole on the backing plate. I got some parts from HBC and the plugs were included. My backing plates don't have a hole for them?
Also not sure what they are called but the arms,levers that are involved with the parking brake seem to be plated with the parts dealers. Mine show no signs of gold after cleaning with evaporust. We're they bare metal?
