I JUST bit on that same offer. I had quit Hot Rod several years ago, got tired of junkyard builds and Power Tour. I've gotten two so far and they are pretty good. The way I look at it I don't have to get too many more to get my $$'s worth.

It's pretty sad, but Hot Rod Magazine is having difficulty staying afloat these days; I recently got an offer of 3 yrs for $20... and I don't think I'm going to accept it.  They apparently are struggling for newsworthy automotive articles based on this and other 'online' articles I've seen.

I bought the Moser perches, just be aware that you will probably need to ream the bolt holes out a little for a bolt to fit cleanly, as the perches seem to be manufactured with the holes drilled first and then the plate folded into shape. You can see the hole distortion in the photo posted above.
The following drawings by former Team Camaro regular 'mark x22' (who sadly passed some years ago) may help set the perch angles up before welding. These are for multi-leaf but I'm not aware that the angles would be any different:

Restoration / Re: Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?

No one.

What we used years before the lousy repro was a new '69-78 Nova dash from GM. Just use the top-the rest of it is different. The later versions of it had an oval-shaped speaker grille so you have to add some louvers.

A good shop could splice the area with the VIN into the repro. Or look around for an NOS Nova dash.

For anyone that needs one and has the dollars - from my home state, sorry to say -

A little harsh, if you ask me. Good piece anyway, good date, legit.

What happened to the driver's side fender? I thought it said parked in 1976? The fender's not damaged in that pic, but it is in the current one?
I saw that too.
Also, I think it says he went to the dealer and bought everything that was "in stock" for a 69 Z, thus the small pile of parts.

Even that's off - I started buying around parts around 1980, and I danged sure ended up with a lot more than he did (and I didn't spend half my paycheck on 'em. He must not have made a lot as a welder -

I'll stop - I promise. I don't mind fiction, but it gets too much to bear sometimes.


Restoration / Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?

Wondering who makes an accurate dash replacement panel for 1969 with the correct area cut out for the VIN tag. The couple that I have seen are really squared off and don't look good at all to me. My 69 dash is pretty gone and will need replacement but am hesitant to do so until I find a good replacement for it. Thanks for any input!

Sorry you are correct:

Still a long time for it to sit around. IMO trans was put together after the car

I was understanding the year as model year and all 69s should have a 9? I would guess normally there wouldn't be much to any overlap of reusing a month. But in 69 with the late production they could overlap the same month used in late 68
