Bob,
Just emailed you a couple of pages from my 67 P&A 34.  May turn up in your spam file.
I'm not the most skilled parts book interpreter.  But I think you are looking for pages from sections 10.096 and 11.209, right?
Phillip

I think they look good.
Thanks for sharing the results.
It will be interesting to see if the paste wax prevents future corrosion.

How about Never Dull to clean and polish.

The butternut 68 got its award.  Still hunting for pictures...

Does it *always* rain/storm in Pennsylvania on Saturday?  Smiley      TOO many years at Carlisle, we've seen big rains and big winds on Saturday.. Smiley
Only when there are expensive restored cars out on a show field....

Thank you for the suggestion. I will give this a try and report back on what happens.

Dave
I, too, am eager to see how it works out.  And Gary is right, whatever you use for the polishing step needs to prevent corrosion.

*L*..   this one isn't for me..  it's white with red interior, and the nicest original '67 I've seen in awhile...   I think my friend will buy it if he can get them down a little.

PS>  I LOVE all original colors..   Smiley

This is the one I referred to, and it was purchased by my friend today..  a very nice looking car, but I'm not a '67 expert and I'd be interested in anything you guys see and want to comment on...

Okay, I'll admit that somebody did do a nice job --from a distance-- of putting the louvers on a standard hood.  And yes, the car looks nice.
But what did your friend pay?  Does one really have to pay $30k for a 30 footer Camaro SS clone.
Please tell your friend I'm not trying to be overly critical of the car.  For not that much more money on de-cloning, he can have a great looking L30/M35 Camaro Sport Coupe. 
My concern is the price....
How does it run?
And yes, I know you like all colors... I apologize for the hugger joke....

All in all, I think the Hershey region did a great job in spite of the rain. I personally thanked the chief judge and meet chair.
That 68 was fantastic, but I didn't get any pics. When I went by the Camaros, it was pouring down rain.

Doug, saw your DB. Great car.
The Dodges at the museum were great. Good display. Good job!

Well, if they bolted on SS louvers to a standard hood, make sure you check if they added the SS hood springs, Gary. 
Remember this is a standard sport coupe, not an SS.  There are plenty of nice First Gen standard sport coupes on Hemmings in the 25k to 28k range. 
There is even a 27k one in Gary's favorite color: hugger orange!

Gary,
10 bolt on a PG, but look at note 7 in the 67 model chart.
How do SS louvers fit on an original hood?
I'd say price is high.
I'd like to think my 68 L30 with PG is worth over $30k but not likely...

Actually those plates don't look that bad.  Just don't scratch the surface.  Oxidation is metal's enemy.  Clean it mildly, dry it thoroughly, wax it.  There's always a kitchen plastic buffing pad and WD40; but take a look at this Industry Video to see how they suggest you clean it.  I've never done this to car parts, but I have seen it used on farm equipment.  It works okay.  More importantly, it won't do any harm.  Let us know how you do...
BTW, do you think they could have made a boring job any more boring in that video?  Roll Eyes

If the NFL can wear pink, why not?  Thanks for the tip about the DBs at the museum.  We'll get by there.  Always have to check on the 1907 IH that we sponsor.  It belonged to a long-time friend before it was donated to the museum.  He was a charter member of our region.
Looks like bergy gets to enjoy half a dozen First Gens on Saturday.  That AACA class is growing.

Yes, yes, and yes again.  Spots C54-C56 in car corral.  Showing in class 36C, and judging class 36B (first choice).
The 36 classes are always great to judge at Hershey. Congrats! I'll be a couple of rows over as captain in 25E. So far, Saturday has a good forecast.
