Restoration / Re: Rocker panel molding installation
« Last post by Z10Mike on July 30, 2015, 03:21:13 PM »
The attachment holes are filled on many cars during the paint process by mistake or purposefully.  Happened to one of mine after repeatedly and specifically pointing those holes out to the shop manager.  Paint guy thought it looked better without the rocker moldings so he took a little "creative license" and filled them all.  Car is still not to the point where I need to locate the holes on the rockers panels and remove the filler, but I am dreading the day.  A buddy filled the holes on his '68 SS because he liked the look.  I don't, but to each his own.

1969 - Orphans / Re: 19N606111 L78 396ci / 375hp block

Hey 69RS/SS Start a new post introducing yourself and the camaro you purchased . Make sure to include some good pics, we all love to see pics of the first gen Camaros. I read your other post, and there is a section on here for orphans (cars, docs, motors, transmissions, that people are looking to match up).
It is a needle in a haystack, but guys have found there original blocks from time to time. With the continued use of the internet, now a days it may improve your chances of locating it. Start doing searches on the internet with the full VIN, and partial vin. You would be surprised what pops up.
Welcome to the site, and I look forward to seeing pics of your car!

Hey Gary, good work. I hear you with the humidity, it just Zaps the energy right out of you doesn't it. I assume your new shop will also have AC/heat? What other amenities are you planning on?

Hey Newbie,
I know someone will reply, might as well be me. Paint code 72 is Hugger Orange, the best color as you will read on the site.
But, the real reason to reply is that you need to know that you are not to post on this thread. Go to first post and you can read up. Maybe moderator can move or delete these 2 posts? Again, Please! Do NOT post to this thread. Start a new thread in one of the provided headings.Thanks, CRG.

I have personally seen them on cars as early as October 1968 and as late as June of 1969 so I don't know about the early comment... seems to me Norwood did it near the entire run.
I believe there is enough data to tell what they mean, other's usually chime in on this as well... if there were not enough data to be REASONABLY SURE I wouldn't reply.

So I'm in Cincinnati and have been to Sharonville show. Are all you guys in this area?

I remember a blue COPO at the show several years ago. Is the one being discussed?

Doubt it...no one had a clue what the car was, this car was raced and was in Tenn 20 years ago.

The sheetmetal is all original and dated for the car... fenders hood quarters etc. never has had any panel replacement. Car was in Tenn for the last 20 years.

I've been asked by a few of you 'How is your garage coming?'...  :)

Not quite 'working on cars' yet, but the garage is coming along.  Currently wiring and insulating on the inside, then wall/ceiling paint and floor epoxy before I begin using it for 'real work'.. :)   
The 'construction zone' is beginning to clear a bit on the outside at least, but working on it during our current 100F/90+Humidity has been tough on my old body!!  :)
