I love the firewall... the grey on the top with the misted lemans blue is so PERFECT... VERY FEW PEOPLE reproduce or replicate this detail correctly. THEY PUT WAY TOO MUCH body color.

The double T on the drivers side is quite typical.

Congrats and.....wow.  Takes guts....

Can you take a photo of the dash panel top?  Like to see what the "suede paint" looks like after all these years.  thanks!

Sizes of firewall letters








Dash pictures did not look great under garage lights, will get some in daylight tomorrow.

Kurt, You had asked for pictures of the engine mount bolts. Let me know if this what you are looking for.

Driver side. This one is still installed



Passenger side. Could not get a good one of the rear view and had to pull bolt to get cable off from around the exhaust manifold.

Got a few more parts off this week and am about ready to pull the front clip. Here are some more detail pictures, as usual there are more in the album if you want to see more. Send me a note for any follow up details. Lug nuts are in there too, they had a mix of markings and are pending sold to a guy on yenko.net.

First question - is this an original battery cable? The battery clamp is not original of course but the starter end terminal looks factory:



Master cylinder and prop valve:







Tag that was on the master cylinder cover bail - it fell off with a minor disturbance. Not sure how it was still on. Is this original?


Tag on carb:


Water pump:

Finally remembered to snap these - sorry about the wait. Got them in a few different looks - from inside, outside through the windshield. Paint looks great just not sure the pictures do it justice. The car sat inside most of the time since the mid-80s in a garage with not a lot of windows so that saved it a lot of paint fade.

WOW 
Mardsen Nut on the Motor mount... does anyone know is that original?

That dash pad will clean up nicely... here is an original black dash pad I cleaned



Seats will also clean nicely

James did you use anything special to clean it with?. I have use baby oil in the past, but I would think there is a better product. Also have you repaired any that were separating?

I have seen that type of nut used on engine mounts before - but can NOT say for sure if it was on a 69 Camaro.

For what it is worth, reproduction parts sold by this company use the same type.

A tooth brush and/or a fingernail brush and I believe denatured alcohol - which is used to clean rubber and vinyl rollers in the printing industry.

Yes I have reattached the covers to the backers... the backing has to be flattened using heat first.

Yes, that's the original cable and RC is the broadcast code for the drum brake system.

What do you see as the height and width measurements of the T, P, and B stamps? I see about 7/8" high on the T and 3/4 on the P & B, but it's hard to be sure.

Thanks!
