Although you say several times that there is no question this is a real RS Z/28, once that car is properly restored, and without original documentation or matching numbers drivetrain, you may well be the only person who believes it. Wouldn't bother some people, but you need to ask yourself if that matters to you, particularly after the amount it will cost to restore properly (even doing it yourself). Nicely optioned car for sure!

Heard Roy Sinor may not be involved in this programme any longer, can anyone confirm? If so, I hope it was always the plan to get it up and running and then hand it over. This is a great service and I'd like to say another big "Thank You" to Roy and the NCRS.

Good detective work Lloyd, I guess you could tell that from the number of feedback stars of the previous buyer being the same as the new seller?
Pity that it appears it's being flipped again so soon, but perhaps the current seller only bought it for the original fuel line, and didn't need the support bracket.....
199  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Zinc Anode Clips on: June 08, 2014, 05:36:28 AM
Bob, the Fisher Body manual calls up part group, not part number, for replacement clips; Group 10.096
It also says in Note 2, page 17-6, "Both zinc anode clips and alternate replacement self-sealing screws are available as service parts."
Fisher references may be different to GM reference numbers though.

No surprise, here's another one for sale on ebay:

That "small flaw" looks like a minor cigarette burn. It will probably still sell though, stuff seems to be going for amazing prices lately.
202  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Zinc Anode Clips on: June 07, 2014, 05:24:12 PM
Well I guess that answers the question, nobody uses them when doing a restoration.
203  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Front Spoiler to Lower Valance Bolts on: June 02, 2014, 04:23:18 AM
Should be shank length, not overall including head.
204  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: June 69 Z28 Tachs on: June 02, 2014, 04:21:30 AM
Interesting that the ink date code stamp is 3 digits (189) on the first tach pictured, and 5 digits (197 69) on Gary's tach. Is that a format change during production, or is the first one possibly missing the '69'?
205  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Zinc Anode Clips on: May 31, 2014, 07:08:16 PM
The 1969 Fisher Body Service Manual indicates that sacrificial zinc anode clips were originally installed in the rear window channels on Camaros (not convertibles). See Section 17, pages 5 and 6. In my work, we employ catholic protection on major highway bridges to reduce internal steel corrosion, so I am familiar with the concept. However, I cannot see that the anode clips would be very effective in this Camaro application. Cannot think of one owner who has routinely replaced clips as they corrode, nor anyone who has installed them during restoration. Anyone know otherwise?
206  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Zeroing in on X code start up on: May 31, 2014, 06:05:28 PM
Very interesting. I guess the vast majority of the time we see an X behind the rear seat, it's far more probable that the car has a black, or HT interior.
207  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: kph speedometer on: May 31, 2014, 05:59:44 PM
Thanks, appreciate the suggestion.

Thinking of you and your good lady Danny, keep positive and know that we are there for you.
209  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Zeroing in on X code start up on: May 31, 2014, 12:59:17 AM
James, so the letter(s) denoted interior color and the number the model/trim, meaning only cars with a black interior should have X(letter) on the rear seat/shelf structure, regardless of the trim tag X codes? So for example, a red interior SS350 would have R5, not X5?
210  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: June 69 Z28 Tachs on: May 31, 2014, 12:52:03 AM
The Julian date and the last digit of the year I think if I remember right. so the 18th day of 1969 Jan 18.
Thanks Brian, makes sense. So tach date codes would be either 3-digits (up to 2nd week in April or so), then 4-digits.
