Question for the CRG core members:
Is the email address listed on the public decoder program (the request to email the decoded txt file to '') still active?

The only car that I've seen with all the original VE3 jack equipment still present had the load rest hook attached to the jack mast, as per the standard bumper jack mounting. A sample size of one is no basis for an assumption, but I can't imagine where the load rest hook could be securely mounted on it's own..... Pity, because originals being so hard to find, it's a shame they're hidden under the spare!
IIRC, the standard jack mast mounting is shown in UPC10 of the 69 AIM.

Triple blue, Glacier blue with blue vinyl top and dark blue deluxe interior - very nice!

Dusk Blue with dark blue interior is a personal favorite, looks great. Shame somebody added the Z21 brightwork (except the tail light bezels). Interested to see comments on the block stamps.

9 = 1969
1 = Chevrolet
A = mid-size models
PB = AM pushbutton
1 = revision 1
It would be correct for a 1969 Camaro.
More info here:

It appears the outers are hard mounted to the bumper. If so that is not the correct attachment set up for the outer (KR KL) brackets to bumper.
It utilizes 2 bushings along with a metal cup and recessed screw.
James, which photo(s) are you referring to above? If you mean the last 2 I posted, those are of the inner bracket.

Aren't those spring clips for 68 (and maybe earlier)?

No problem. Not sure if NOR used any different fastener suppliers (mine is an LA car), but my understanding from the NCRS boys is that numerous common head markings have been observed on survivor cars, and were used interchangeably; whatever supplier's product came out of the bolt bin was what went on the car.

Thanks for the tip Len!

The sedan delivery (pic 033) for me!
Looks pretty complete and in good condition - a lot of those others, while cool cars/trucks, might be hard to find body and trim parts for.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Hose Clamps on: November 22, 2014, 10:27:22 PM
Looking into tracking down some original tower-style hose clamps. There seems to be many sizes available (no doubt manufactured for numerous other makes/models), but as these aren't cheap, don't want to get the wrong ones. Is the clamp size specified to suit the hose that they secure, or the maximum opening size of the clamp?
Anyone know the size for heater hoses (I believe there are 2 sizes) and upper and lower radiator hoses for a 1969 small block? (Not putting smog back on).
As far as I can tell, Wittek clamps were dated by quarter, so there would only be 4 date codes per calendar year.
Thanks for any help!

OK, checked the car this morning, and the 2 bolts that attach each of the inner VE3 brackets to the bumper itself have 'RBW' head markings (as do the bolts for the outer brackets). The bolts that attach the bracket to the frame horn/extension have 'L5' on the head. Anyone seen this head marking in this application before?
(FWIW, the car had a starburst drag racing paint scheme applied over the original silver in 1971, you can see the paint overspray on the bumper and brackets, but it is evident on inspection that the front end was painted without being disassembled, so I have no reason to doubt these bolts were on the car, at least in '71, if not when it left the factory. When I eventually remove the bumper (and brackets) for repair, I'll take photos showing the length of these bolts.

'RBW' (bumper to bracket):

'L5' (bracket to frame horn extension) sorry about photo, not very clear but hard to access:

The original bumper is still on my VN car, I'll aim to get some photos of the bolts on the inner brackets over the weekend. Haven't really paid them much attention before now.

Can originals be rebuilt, or are they non-serviceable?

Thanks for posting the pictures!
