No, I can't make it this year.  I've gone in past years though as a spectator only, not taking my own car.  Are you going this year? 
General Discussion / Rear Seat Measurement
« Last post by sdkar on June 28, 2015, 10:16:50 PM »
Hey guys,

I have received my new houndstooth interior.  However, I have an issue with the rear seat backrest.  The original seat cover as well as a new standard cover measures at approximately 35-36 inches from the very top wire to the very bottom wire at the center where the hump would be.  My new houndstooth cover measures at 32 inches.  When it is hog ringed in place at the top, No matter how much I pull and stretch, it will NOT reach the section where it is to be crimped at the bottom.  I set it in the sun, and gained maybe an inch, but it will just not work. 

So, is it me, or the material?  What is the measurement, if anyone has it, that is proper for the back rest rear seat going from top wire to bottom wire, at the center supposed to be?
well he either got it sold, or it no longer resembled a Camaro, that he to change the listing....
Please say there are more pics of this beauty.  Wow, never has someone worked so hard to screw something up that bad.

well if your first pic is the original, I would say the "solid tempered" line is actually smaller, and it looks like the "safety plate " letters don't have as many breaks in them. Also the spacing looks a bit different. BUT I have no idea since I have only seen a couple, if the originals were not uniform when the etching was done.

Wouldn't a windshield be AS1 while the sides are AS2?
do you have the AS mark on the upper passenger side? should be where the shading starts

My front is just about dead on to what Chris posted above. The last line on new might be a tick wider.
the rear is a little different and I will let Randy know. I will post my original first. Some reason there is a dash in as2. Spacing needs corrected also. I will get the calipers and measure them also.

I was at Pilkington Friday and picked up my windshield. I have the other in the house and will compare. Mine had enough deep scratches they wouldnt polish out. My back glass was actually the worse.
I got to see how the guy date codes them. He has a small rubber like stencil with several dates and attaches it to the glass and gives it a blasting with a fine media. I bet it doesnt take 5 minutes. The blaster had 2 walls of his booth covered in muscle car pictures. Nice guys
The place is huge and they have regular car glass there too. Classic glass is the last dock of the warehouse and it was dock 24 to give you an idea how long it was.
