1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 07, 2013, 06:41:23 PM
  FWIW , I used a small grinding wheel and cut/removed butterfly from riser assy.
    Re-installed  //  Looks, and functions (weight-spring movement only ) as original, and no worry about sticking in closed position!!
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Property Tax Rate Schedule on: March 16, 2013, 08:12:17 PM
    In Connecticut , all towns access Antique plate registered cars @ $500.00 ,
   so in my case, I have a yearly property tax under $20.00 !!
       ( Mill rates vary from town to town)
   There have been several attempts over the past few years to change this,
  but luckily all have failed.

   Yes, I believe the originals were done at lower cost , "Flash Chroming"  over a nickle base.

    I was told that the copper process was needed to clean up surface issues, prior to polish,
    due to various surface conditions , caused by rust/dings/chrome removal , on these 40+ year old pieces of
    stamped sheet metal.
   
    **Also, the "Show Chrome" route is probably overkill for these covers , but they could not predict how
        they would look with the lower cost option.

  I agree , as I just dropped off a set on 3/19 , of original "O" stamped VC's at a plater in Springfield, MA.
    (Berkshire MFG.)
   
  **They were not plated, but originally painted , so I had to strip the paint and tap out a couple of small dings.

   The cost is based on condition (rust / dents / *removing old plating) , which require reworking with copper plating / acid baths / labor.

    My estimate was $200- 250 for "SHOW" , with approx. 2-3 week turnaround !!
