They stripped the body with some sort of plastic beads which brought it back to the original metal....Joe

Here's some pictures of the firewall. You can make out 259, C60 & BYEL. On the driver's side I believe it said Z87 but it didn't come out in pictures. Notice during the installation of the a/c box one of the screws went right through the hidden VIN....Joe

I was looking at these pictures I just posted. In the 3rd picture, next to the wiper mounting holes, above the seam sealer, in pencil, does that look like it says C08? It's real faint. Never noticed that before.
What might be the blue graffiti? ..Joe

Never seen a hidden VIN there on a '69 Camaro. Wonder if they changed places on the later built cars.

I agree, Warren. That's a new one on me, as well as the funky passenger side smog tube. One of the great parts of the hobby is you never stop learning.

Thanks for all the pics, Joe. Great stuff.

This is from CRG but they don't show a picture of "with a/c". Another guy in town has his apart. He'll send a picture. His is a Jan 69 from LA....Joe

From CRG "On the firewall below the fan motor opening (non-AC cars) or below the heater opening (AC cars). This requires the heater or air conditioning box removal, and therefore most car buyers will not have an opportunity to view this stamp."

If there was ever any question on who & when the PBT was stamped on the Norwood bodies, this should clear it up. These were under the a/c box when I removed it from the firewall...Joe

One thing I hate to see is a nicely done car & a bent up crossmember. Being a big block with a/c is probably the heaviest up front so jacking the car it that point isn't a good idea. I followed something I saw on Youtube. I think it came out good. The 2 small holes are for the big block a/c baffle....Joe

A couple of pictures of my driveshaft. I put it in a 4" piece of pvc with evaporust for a day. Restriped it & shot it with semi gloss clear...Joe
