1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '69 Z/28 Stripes applied backwards? on: Today at 03:36:43 PM
It really looks odd.  It makes me wonder what else is wrong with the car.

Jim
That vin should be 12A or 12B. Probably too early for the cowl hood. It also has no tach,console, or gauges. I can,t remember when the tach became a requirement.

Jim69: This is why I (we) try and get the details right in my (our) restoration, so someone does not say what you did and wonder what else is wrong or even if it is what is claimed. I do not want someone in the know to question the authenticity.

Kelley: With VIN Kurt provided, it should be a 12C, I believe. Tach was not required until way later in production and, yes, too early for ZL2, IMO. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=6281.0  some other posts are useful if you search on here.

Did originals have the through holes for the screws (like the ones Darrell pictured) or were there studs?

I think the holes are correct with screws, not absolutey sure. They are factory correct covers. Two would indicate stereo, I believe. If only one, it would be U69 RH side only.

Outstanding and neat story Scott. Have all known 69 P-car Trim Tags been compared? I would think the body numbers would be sequential being ordered at the same time.

and what's the 9A, B, or C stand for?

9=1969 year A=jan,B=Feb...and so on. That is what he (we) want to see. Get your camera out again and remove the capacitor.

"but I may come back over just because I now have all the time in the world.   I retired after 35 years in the oil patch.  "

Please do (come back) and congrats on your recent retirement.

If they were original quarter panels, the holes for the louvers would be present.  

Exactly!

When I saw the louvers were not present, I thought the same thing, and this is probably the case, but I remembered that JohnZ's car had the fender emblems removed and filled in and did not want to make an assumption.  But, that wrong wiper motor (non RS) was the last straw.lol

Can a 03B build have a Dec 68 cover and be ok?Huh

Why sure. It is better than having a 12B build with a 3/69 cover, which would NOT be ok.

  This guy in Canada has these ads a lot on eBay and for 67 & 68 tags the numbers are not quite right and the horizontal column alignments are not period correct.

Mike


...and maybe he (Canadian guy) knows his tags have problems and now we are helping him by telling what he needs to change to correct his parts. Hope this is not the case?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 05, 2014, 03:34:46 PM
Quite a bit posted about this topic, I know. 69Z28 (Gary) asked a week ago under 69ZEE's (Darrell) post about a pic of his fitting. I began to look for my fitting, which I can say without question, is the original fitting off my L48 11D Nor U17 opt. car. There is a small brass pin in the ferrule that goes inside the plastic line. This looks the same as S. Shauger's in post #75. For the record, here are pics:
