I am currently refurbishing my center console and would like to do it correctly . The door hinge appears to have been chrome or zinc plated , the door spring and door arm looks to have been black but to what gloss I can not tell . Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance !

Originality / Throttle return spring Color
« on: April 09, 2014, 04:43:55 PM »
Hello Everyone'

  I have been searching for the correct color for the return spring on a 69 350 SS with a Rochester Carb. HBC sells the spring bare metal and says it was brown from the factory . Can any one give me some insight as to what shade and gloss ?

 Thanks in advance, Rich

Restoration / 69 turbo 350 trans fill tube
« on: March 13, 2014, 02:16:24 AM »
Hello everyone ,
  I was wondering what the original finish is on the fill tube for the  350 turbo automatic for 1969? The after markets are black but I am trying to keep everything as original as possible. If it is black what would be the gloss?
 Secondly would anyone have a decent fill tube for sale as mine is rather beat up.

 Thanks, Rich

Restoration / Removing the copper ferrules on the 69 parking lights
« on: February 16, 2014, 03:17:21 AM »
Hello all ,what a wonderful sight!!!  I want to replate the parking lights but would like to remove the copper ferrules to do so. They look like they are crimped in place with a small notch or tab. I have seen restoration pictures with them separated. I know I can get them apart but don't want to mess them up plus I have to get them back in correctly.
 Are there replacement studs for this light housing, two of mine were broke
When this one was taken apart in 1979.
   Thank you, Rich
