436  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: !969 cushion grip or rosewood steering wheel with tilt column on: February 18, 2013, 03:51:03 PM
Any info on tilt column diameter or hub part #s or actual diameter @ the column end of the #3937896 hub would be helpful. Thanks
I just measured an original 3937896 hub as follows:
Overall diameter at wheel side: 3+5/16" (or 84.5mm)
Overall diameter at column side: 4+1/8" (or 104mm)
Hope this helps.

Can you identify which hole the wiring comes through (if any) in the image below?

Nice to meet you all, and thanks for all your help so far.

Now we are seeing good data!    Please show Nor. or Van.  with body production  and hood week.    Now lets keep the data coming!
The original hood on my 04A Van Nuys car is stamped '13'; although not requested in this thread, the quarters and trunk lid are stamped '12' and the roof reinforcement on the driver's side is '7'. Haven't checked the fenders or doors yet, where would the stamp likely be on those?
441  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Zl-2 Cowl Hood Production on: January 31, 2013, 06:33:39 PM
were flat hoods stamped as well?
Yes they were, on the driver's side rear corner - same as the picture posted earlier on page 1.

Here is my SS350 factory ZL-2. Probably very few made.
Does your car have a '270' ignition coil? Beautiful car, BTW!

I use a few hundreths of a gram less hardener than base at most and have had great results.
James,
Could you confirm which product you'd recommend for repairing cracks in an original VE3 bumper? I have had 3M Automix 05887 recommended to me, but noticed a reply on page 1 of this thread that mentioned 05883.
Cheers, Tim

Thanks Everett.
445  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Window Crank Knob Color on: November 03, 2012, 12:22:49 AM
Original GM clear knob window crank handles, including the ones in my car, all seem to be yellow-ish, like the one in the picture below. The reproduction handles with clear knobs are quite different, er, clear, just like the description.
So is the yellowing of originals due to age, UV exposure etc, or am I missing something? Even the supposed NOS handles that I've seen (even those still in their boxes) appear to be yellow.

Great demonstration James - you've inspired me to try it myself!
447  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Urethane Repair Product for VE3 Special Front Bumper on: October 11, 2012, 11:42:03 PM
See the post(s) in General Discussion "Reproduction Endura bumpers are horrible" - unfortunately, GM discontinued the repair kits you will see pics posted of, but there is a guy out there doing repair work that looks to be a really decent deal.
Yep, I saw that thread, and have previously seen how bad the repro bumpers fit.
Unfortunately, based on my location, it's too costly to ship my VE3 back to the States for restoration, so I am quite prepared to do it myself. But because of the time it will take me, I'd really like to hear first from someone who has already done this, so I know I'm using a suitable product for the repairs. Failing that, I'll take my chances with the 3M Automix, and let you guys know via this forum how it works out!
448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Urethane Repair Product for VE3 Special Front Bumper on: October 10, 2012, 02:59:38 AM
Can anyone recommend a product to repair a VE3 Special Front Bumper (often referred to as Endura Bumper)?
In researching this, came across a recommendation for 3M Automix 5887 Plastic Repair, which is a 2-part epoxy product, but the TDS states it is for use on plastic parts (such as modern bumper covers and other plastic trim parts).
Any help or advice much appreciated.
449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Brake Booster date code on: September 20, 2012, 03:30:16 AM
Thanks guys for your replies, seems the booster is dated too early for it to be original to the car.
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Brake Booster date code on: September 18, 2012, 07:16:09 AM
Is it likely (possible?) that a 9204 booster dated January 2 (Julian code '2' on the tag) on an 04A Van Nuys car could be original? I understand that they are usually much closer to the body trim tag date, at least with the Norwood cars.
