Originality / Need 68 Red Deluxe Interior Top Of Dash Paint Info
« on: August 19, 2018, 02:46:53 AM »
Looking for definitive answer on the top of dash paint for my red interior 68.
I did find via search topics this same question for 67s but I donít know if the referenced paint code would be the same,and the links posted in that old thread are dead.

Thanks,
Bill

Just a tip -  you can resize pictures (smaller) before posting, so they are easier to see without scrolling across and down the page.  I use Paint myself.

Oops.  I didn't realize those last to were so huge.  Thanks.

Little diversion from my assignments, but also trying to get my Dad's 53 Bel Air convertible back on the road.  :)

The floors in the driver's compartment were in good shape, but from the back half job, the section around the rear seat was cut up along with the trunk.  So to avoid having a cross seam in the floor pan, the decision was finally to replace the floors from the rear bumper to the firewall.  Also that let us chassis jig it all up and perfect alignments, dimensions, squareness.

Some progress on the body.  Original quarters, doors and sills in good shape.

Tell me more about the headers?
Vendor, lead time, est market cost, fit, finish, material, etc?
You seem to making great progress.
JIM

Jim,
I bought them new from Brett Radnoff, T/A Performance Restorations in California.

He is not the builder. If you do a search here on reproduction headers there is some discussion on them and Jerry M mentions the guy who builds them.

There are a bit like art.  I will hate to make them black and install them as they look so good on the bench. :)
Very solid and hefty. Welds and bends are very nice. Supposedly fab ed off the correct jigs.

Buying parts as I come across them in no particular order.  Focusing first on Z specific items like cast iron PS pulley, etc...  Decided to go the reproduction headers route rather than manifolds and smog equipment.

Finally a step in the forward direction.  Doors removed, DA sanded, media blasted, hammer and dollied, primed.  Orig. sheetmetal.    Subframe coming off next and body going on a dolly and inside.
