106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: widow felts nos vs. A.Mrkt. on: March 09, 2014, 01:30:17 PM
 Wink Thanks Mike. I guess to try to clarify my position I have, up to this point, always bought original OEM or NOS items ONLY. I have not bought anything repro, quite proud of that, I may add. I am getting to a point in parts buying where I realize that repro will be the only route as the price of NOS is too high for me IMO. Most of the items I speak of are soft items like rubber, foam, plastic, and vinyl. Things like weatherstrips and trunk mat. The other items are pot metal where it might be too costly to re-plate. I am a purist and like things as correct as possible. If there is anything that falls under the categories mentioned (soft and pot metal) that the repro is just not acceptable because of appearance, fit and quality and is so sub-standard that it is obvious to most that it is not "correct" then I would like to know. I asked about felts because I have a chance to get a set of outer NOS. I know I would prefer to have them over the repro, but for cost consideration. I will compromise (or should say I have to) up to a point, but if the repro part is just flat wrong and a flimsy cheap imitation, I want to know and at that point, I will have to suck it in and get NOS.

Always nice to see members meeting in the real world. Glad things are back on the the track and at full throttle.

Full throttle??...My bank account has a governor on it,lol   
I'll add, I had to leave my house a 5 am to meet up with Bueny at 7 am. Did not get home till 8 pm! Long day, for sure. Bueny was disappointed as he planned on taking a maiden voyage in his COPO clone, but weather did not co-operate.

As some of you have followed, my car's restoration had stalled when I was having difficulty finding someone to do the body work on my 69. After a plea and post on here and several supportive members coming forward, I believe things are back on track. A heartfelt thanks to all who have helped. One member, Buenymayor, told me about his body guy and sent me pics and helped me make contact with , mrls6, in Ft. Wayne,Ind. I had a good feeling about this guy from the first contact. Today, Buenymayor and I met at his house in downtown Buena Vista, Ind. and drove up to see his car and to give me a chance to meet mrls6 in person. We all hit it off and we all had a lot more in common than just our love of Camaros. Arrangements have been made for my car to be started on in April. He(mrls6) is finishing up on Buenymayor's car right new. Thanks CRG and get ready to follow this restoration as things progress. Yea, I am nervous about the money holding out, but I only have this one life and don't want to have regrets, so will press forward and try and join the ranks of restored correctly Camaro owners. Now, I am in S.W. Ohio and Ft. Wayne is not in my backyard, but mrls6 impressed me with his knowledge and desire and ability to do the job right. So, looks like I have a plan. Wish me luck! Wink

Joe, What all did you add, option wise? Do you have a pic of what it looked like when you first got it? In its $800 form? Car looks outstanding now. Like the color.

 Huh Hey there Sul423,
I won't speak for all, but many of us, here, would say,“Homie don't play that” to quote Damon Wayans- Homie the Clown character of the 2000's. We would like to get to know you and learn about your car. Of course, you did not put your location in your profile, so I cannot relate to your pic or know anything about you or your car. By what I see, is that Kuwait where the pic was taken? Give us some more information and become a player with some social skills and then some here, may be compelled to want to post to your instagram or whatever it is site. What really interests most here would be pics of the trim tag and other relevant documentation that proves the car is not just another of countless clones that pervade the market. I will give kudos that it is Hugger Orange though Roll Eyes Cheesy Best of luck and welcome to the site.

His reply: hidden vins are not visible dash has not been cut floor has 4 speed hole not cut but needs replacing. it does have the heavy duty trunk spring and pinion snubber im not sire if its there. dual exhaust brackets are there.

Pictures certainly do not give any info..  Do you have more pics or info?  Trim tag & vin with the car?

Both the cowl tag and the VIN plate have been removed.

Paul



Yeah I should have looked at the pics more closely.. 
Surely, you could have looked it over closer, it's not like it was H.O. and you could not look directly at it DW!!

Did anyone else notice how little rebar there is in the concrete? BIG slabs fell in with no rebar in sight, as if nothing was tied together.

I know that fiberglass is used in slabs in lieu of re-bar to give the concrete strength, which may be the case with this slab...after all fiberglass is a Corvette thing,right?
118  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Owner and I believe this to be a Z (69) on: March 04, 2014, 04:55:58 PM
This new listing for a hulk appears to be a H.P. model and the 4 leafs give credence as a Z, as owner points out. Also mentioned are that it has Muncie speedo hole and manual floor shift hole. Not mentioned are: RH rear dual exhaust hanger, firewall holes for RS and Ducted Hood, Tail Pan RS Holes, May have spoiler deck springs too. Maybe we can inquire and get the hidden Vin for database? If you (members) are going to Charlotte Autofair, it could be checked out closer. I bet Cook could get this one fixed up with his talent,lol, not me though. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-z28-69-camaro-body-for-parts-or-race-car-NO-TITLE-/301114113216?forcerrptr=true&hash=item461bccbcc0&item=301114113216&pt=US_Cars_Trucks.
I forwarded it to member KERR, since he needs a roof.

We (CRG) don't care if you have wipers or not, and we don't mind humor either!  :-)




Man, that is good to know! Some on the other site are not into humor and they can make the site into a joke, if you know what I mean. I am always going to post grainy,fuzzy pics from here on out, so you guys do not see all the flaws and pick my car apart.
