Enamel reducer is what I used, this whole engine compartment had been rattlecanned during the 70's, Figuring it to be enamel I tried enamel reducer VIOLA....

FYI this is TEDIOUS AND NASTY work and must be done in a well ventilated area. IT TOOK 20 HOURS PLUS, however the original phosphates etc were beautiful, the car was certified survivor at the 07 Camaro Nationals. 









It seems like yesterday we were Vintage Certifying that car. Wow 7 years in June. BTW you did an amazing job cleaning and detailing the car while preserving the original finishes and stampings.

Also remember that the factory gauge is NOT an "ammeter" - it's not in series with any loads; it's simply a sensitive voltmeter (galvanometer) that senses the voltage at the starter solenoid and at the horn relay screw terminal buss, compares them, and displays the difference as "amp numbers", to indicate whether current is flowing TO or FROM the battery. The last "ammeter" in a GM car was in the '62 Corvette.

The amp meter (really a volt meter) is reading the voltage drop across two points (which act as a shunt). I believe the two points are the horn relay and the terminal block by the battery. The wire between those points has a fixed resistance(acts as a shunt like all amp meters). As the current increases through that wire, a voltage drop is measured (IxR). The voltage drop is in proportion to the amplitude of current flowing between those two points. The meter is calibrated to represent amperage.

Cherokee- GM Styling 67 Camaro. In the background is the L88 Corvette showcase. You'll see a lot of magazine coverage of the show in the coming months because I believe there were 20 or so magazine/photographers who attended.
