...a brief update this,

Another evolution/iteration of the instrument cluster for essentially starting again with a new panel is seen below, whereas scale Dymo labels as well as turned aluminum toggle switches might further be added.  Sorry for the fuzzy photo image - look away quickly lest a headache form!  

The second image reveals efforts to search for appropriate fonts for what in time will be the artwork for the livery.  Given this will constitute my first effort to create decals for something of my own, good it is that most elements present require only a black outline as contrasted to the difficulties posed by other topics and other comparatively complex liveries. Here I take a stab and all that I've seen on the car less hood artwork across the entire '71 season.  The 'Tempest by Trans/Action' identification appeared mid-season and is almost never visible in photos, whereas hints of driver identification on the roof is seen here and there and is clearly not reproduced below.  Lastly, my 'Quaker State' typeface options thus far are clearly substandard, whereas better numeral art is coming; i.e. taller and slightly better shaped too.  Not terrible though...

Hey Paul, are you the closest member of the CRG team to me here in Sonoma? Maybe I will make a run down Sunday  Grin   ... Danny

Possibly.  I have family that live in Sonoma on Fifth Street East.  My cousin owns a small coffee shop in Downtown Sonoma.  I'll be coaching soccer games all weekend!  Smiley

My old 69 LM1 had the vin by the oil filter but it was so faint I could never snap a pic of it, new owner might be doing that this winter when he takes it out.  Its a 10d (x164)  LOS built car.  Original RS with 350 Qjet, TH350 tranny and 12 bolt rear end, fold down rear seat, pwr front disc brakes, vinyl top.

What would cause my 69 Camaro to backfire? First time it happened when I was starting the car and today it happened when I was accelerating on the highway.

Great news. Stay on top of the thyroid meds as you can really feel like crap if you don't keep the dosage right. Also read up on healthy eating etc. Plenty of info out there.

Thanks for the reply and yes I have looked at the CRG report but did not answer my question.
I have since found an TI installation sheet #3916731 (11-4-66) that shows the early plate 3916730 but does not have part numbers. The early plate is a parallelogram, that is, a lopsided rectangle.
Jim Stubing (Heartbeat City) makes a repo of the 2nd design plate #3954206 that is rectangular in shape and is verified  on page 2 of COPO 3560 TI install sheets #3961574 with part #3954206.
I believe the positioning of the plates on the COPO sheets are drawn incorrectly.
Thanks to Bill Glowacki for copies of the installation sheets. Grin

It is an LA Camaro. A numbers matching 1969 LM1 RS, 350 with 350 tranny, 12 bolt. I bought it from the original owner who got it when she got out of High school.

Is your spare block from a Camaro, Steve??


Yessir. In fact, the car it came out of is listed in Jerry's Definitive '69 book. Both blocks are Norwood - I understand Van Nuys was a little erratic in their execution of the stamping locations. Norwood apparently was more consistent once they made the changeover.

Gary's correct on fuel/octane. My father rebuilt the 302 in 1990 and had hardened valve seats installed when they went through the heads. Did some duty in the Anglia when it was in street form and ran great on Premium pump. Problem is with these pre cat engines is they need lead for lubrication. (heads) I know there are additives on the market ,someone can chime in for recommendations. My 12.5:1 engine needed higher octane to prevent pre ignition (pinging), and we run 116 in the 14.75:1 motor. 1/2 gallon a pass ! Congrats on your progress ,know you have that warm feeling of pride. If you ever rebuild an engine ,follow those same  procedures for initial start up. Upon break in, you do not want continued roll over....problems. Stop and re-evaluate.

I do love the smell of race fuel ,but it comes with a high price tag !
