Originality / Another seat hinge question...
« on: May 27, 2020, 12:30:57 PM »
...this time for front bucket seats, more specifically on a 67.  Were all the hinges connecting the seat top to bottom painted black, or some other color, or painted to match the interior color?  The plastic covers were obviously interior color, but I'm asking about the actual metal hinges.  Thanks

Here's a few sites with paint codes.  The non-black colors usually used a darker color and all had a texture (suede) for the top of the dash and rear package tray trim.  It's detailed in some of the old paint books.

Is there a visible part number on the black and gold decal?   Looks like a 68 or later.

Regarding the interior - are both areas stripped to bare metal, or are you top coating over existing?  The top of the dash (and a few other areas around the rear window trim of coupes) used a suede texture paint that differs from the face of the dash and the rest of the interior. How technically correct are you trying to get?  The paint experts will likely chime in on this.

Yep, that's what I was thinking of!

I believe it was in the 70s or 80s that they started using those rear deck speakers covers (inside the trunk) with the insulation inside.  I think it was black hard cardboard used.

Is your old pump repairable?  I found that the bellows kit from a 67 Vette is the same for 67 Camaro.  I also found a spare kit on eBay, see picture.  Someone also told me/claimed they were able to put the newer 68 up pump on a 67 wiper assembly, by drilling a new mount hole for one of the three(?) screws.  No idea if true.

Originality / rear fold down seat hinges - color
« on: April 30, 2020, 02:31:19 PM »
Can anyone tell me if, for a non-black interior, the hinges for a fold down rear seat were painted the interior color, to match the carpeted metal seat back panel?  Or were all hinges black?  Specifically for a 67 LOS car, however I suspect it would be the same across all first gens.  Thanks

Rear axle is clearly a restamp.

And the tube is in exceptionally nice shape, for a car that has a very pitted dash VIN tag

Thanks, I was probably not washing off the Evaporust properly.  I also noted on the bottle that the treated metal has to have certain content/properties like chromium etc.
