Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Not all cars had the build sheets left in them. Thats just the luck of the draw if you do have it.. looks like you found a lot of cool factory stuff tho!

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

THe one that says IP and have a bar code on it is the assembly line worksheet for where they put your complete dashboard together, each stop on the line had a similar worksheet and there's at least 8 of them in total as far as I've seen so far ...

Very nice find, any chance you could post higher res images of them all just so it's possible to print and read what's on them.

Big thank you for sharing this piece of history!

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Looking a bit closer on that document (I take it its double sided?) its the final inspection sheet used at Van Nuys to see if anything is wrong and needs to get sorted before shipped out ....

If you look through the photos of the last camaro being built (http://www.last1992camaro.com/) you see that final inspection area and the Camaro being inspected so that sheet must be what they used, maybe alongside a couple of others?

If possible would you have access to a scanner to scan front and back of it for us all, just so we can read all the details (I'm really into the history of the manufacturing side so this is so cool).

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Brilliant, some straight on photos of top / bottom etc will work just as well.

Very impressive photo collection, this is great as a reference both for yourself and others. Looks like a really nice and clean GTA !

When I try to go to the next page so clicking on "show more" I get this error message:

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Got them, could click forward while viewing pictures one by one and got to them all.

Big thank you for taking the time to share the detailed pictures, I'm sure I speak for everyone as I don't think any of us seen this document before.

Oh IGOR mentioned on there is the tire/wheel tracking machine used to do the alignment on the assembly line (at the end somewhere).

Not sure if you taken the dashpad off yet however should be a sticker showing the test of the electrical stuff on there about 6x3" in size or so.

Keep up the good work and again thanks for sharing!

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Justin Lee Holst thats a dealer check off sheet, used for after they get shipped to a dealer ship for them to make sure everything is with it and in great condition, ik cuz they still do that, hell uhaul does that even for their trucks and trailers haha
but thats still sick and i dont know how you got it because they aren't supposed to even be in the car for the customer to see

Re: hey everyone check out what i found under my carpet

Nope that is not a dealer check list that is defenitly the Van Nuys plant last stop checklist to see if anything needs to be sorted before it leaves the factory AND I don't think the dealer would put it under your carpet lol

I also know that same image on the front page was used on the PAS Inc inspection sheets (they built the 89 TTAs) for when they did the final checks of the TTAs after they left Van Nuys and they did this @ their facility ... always wondered why they did have a front/rear Camaro image on their document ... now I know :-)
