Always assumed these were not original to the car until reading over the thread. Like Gary, my Dad sprayed the wipers ,but more for looks (Ashgold likes black highlights IMO) Going back to 76.

Car was never in the snow or rain(since 76 for sure) ,I've never seen the wipers move. Story goes never prior. I'll check for part numbers this week. Little details like this interests me.

yes Cheesy    Waiting for a set of line bending pliers ( Eastwood ) to correct.  Enjoying the break in the weather outside in the yard this weekend.

like on suggested link, notice my timing mark in relation to bolt holes...inline like yours.   67/68....lot more 69's built, just sayin Wink


other applications ,couldn't tell you ,sure it's somewhere on the site.  KEEP in mind ,if you plan to buy/use it ,have it examined. Old worn balancers and high RPM's don't mix.

Beginning to stock some of the few " misc" items that have been missing for years.  Shroud clip, a few fasteners ,etc..

Very pleased with what arrived in the mail today. Matches my originals, labeled and packaged well for organization.

Like I posted ,for a grand ,would have drove up there...perhaps hooked up with DWC(grand plus 1 dollar) or Bentley ,with a UHAUL Smiley


Sauron has written enough about the value of OE sheet metal Cheesy , vs. getting aftermarket straight in the shop Tongue. As my body man repeated to me many times.

Bob had a good portion of a day getting my 69 ,dealer purchased (in 69) rust free " fresh air hood" straight. Surprising even to him.

Nobody even mentioned the weather stripping$$ Consoles ,mystery boxes ,seats...I think he did good. Was that a head I saw ? Pair of 2.02's? Huh ,fasteners alone!   Got a battery hold down bolt?? LOL

Shame the rest disappeared or was scrapped

0ff my 04D 68, Z.   IMO ,yes, worth picking up if priced right.
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 07:25:38 AM
If you can get it all for 1K...I'll drive up there and pick it up! Shocked

one lie will branch into many...what's under the pretty paint?

Is a pretty car per pics,  very poor choice of rear gear for a 302..why  Huh But relatively cheap fix.


Bids under real Z price....if it's clean...these cars aren't cheap to build Wink...if re-building right.

Bill I may run into, only a few hours south of me. Opinions vary but glad to see he's having the car shot. My "near future' is about a year or so. Slower you go ,the more you tend to do "better" College costs and trying to hit a few Gasser meets this summer with Dad will slow progress a tad.

Back to the thread: some joy may be found in selling off those Camaros. The guy who bought the EL Camino is a true car guy, did a great job in getting it back on the road (his kids are out of college LOL)  I'm also a PTA and had him in for rehab for some knee issues (small world) any way, he showed me pics of the car and extended the offer if my wife and I wanted to take  it out to Quaker State some time while I'm "rehabbing" the Z. The old SS goes from being poorly repaired to a guy's garage who was clueless how to fix it (20+ years)..full of rat turds, to my shop. Then to a guy who loves them, restores them and has it back in circulation. win-win. I always feel good about that story.

off the rear sub frame--under body ( 2 clips) to the junction. (at bracket hard to flex line)   When I was "playing with it", the line got bent , not kinked luckily. Not a hard fix, but I need reference for the correct bends.  Waaay off right now.
