Are you saying the VIN on the driver's side upper dash is 124379N590xxx?

I have 2 GM VE3s, the original one to my car and another early take-off from a Rallye Green car, and the outer brackets on both look just like those in Steve's pictures above.

I have restored at least 100 or more 69 Camaro parking lights, allot of the cores I have purchaced had OEM amber painted lamps still in place, with a blue glass insulator for the two contacts.

Thanks for commenting Mike. I've seen your restored park lights over at yenko.net and am always impressed by how good they look.

My recollection was that the original amber bulbs were actually painted clear glass, then some time later the manufacturers started to use colored glass. Had a search and found this http://www.ebay.com/itm/261647588982 however would like to hear from others on this as ebay sellers are not always noted for 100% accuracy Smiley

Interesting to see one of the park lamps still has an original amber-painted bulb. Nice details!

^ that's a very good starting point, nice work!
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Body Stamping Plants on: November 05, 2014, 01:20:12 AM
Thanks John; do you know how many stamping plants were used for Camaro, and their locations?
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '68 mo block and other gear on: November 01, 2014, 08:06:03 PM
I'd sell it, and ask the buyer that if he should in turn sell it in the future, to keep track of the new buyer's details, and so on for subsequent buyers. Some day, an owner of the car will want to reunite them, and the trail may not have gone too cold.
You might have more luck finding a buyer for an MO block if it was back in the US though.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Body Stamping Plants on: November 01, 2014, 05:21:52 AM
For the major body components assembled by Fisher, how many body stamping plants are known of, and are the actual plant locations known by the first letter of the run number? For example, most of the stampings on my car are 'T' and 'H', but I have also seen 'K'. Curious if each panel came from only one plant, and if not, did Norwood and Van Nuys have separate sources?

Well I cannot find a photo of the NOS black bezels that I came across recently, but I did just spot a single black one for sale on ebay, this looks like the pair I saw insofar as both the inside and outside are black.

Darrell, thank you very much for the pictures, that's great!
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 X77 garage/barn find on: October 27, 2014, 04:51:14 AM
Darrell, if you get a chance, I would much appreciate it if you could verify a couple of details of your open element air cleaner base, which I noted early on in this thread. With specific regard to the vent tube that enters the air cleaner base from the passenger side valve cover breather hose, I'd like to know if the elbow turns out below the base at a 90-degree or 45-degree angle to the horizontal, the approximate position (o'clock) at which it exits the base, and also if the tube is 1" in diameter. Any help (or pics!) would be great!!

No wonder there is confusion over painted or not, found this set on kijiji and they appear to be silver on the inside......

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 X66 SS Headlight Bezels? on: October 24, 2014, 03:26:51 PM
Definitely post pics.  That would be the first ones I have seen.  Are they molded in black or painted?
Still looking, sure I have a couple of pictures..... I was seeking a spare RH argent silver bezel with the trim at the time, so didn't pay them too much notice, other than curiosity because I'd never seen black bezels close-up before (except already on a car). But my recollection was that they were black on the inside as well as the outside, so maybe molded in black rather than painted? I should've bought them.......

Got the same email, said the parts came from a number of collections. Made myself late for work reading through the inventory.......Wonder how much James paid for the lot?
