My 12C 68 is just over 13". Original p/n is 3864327 superseded to 3923912 according to april 1970 PnA.

It took me a while to hunt it down in that dinosaur of a book [listed in the index as Retainer chassis wiring harness]
It's in grp 2.559, last entry and I quote:
65 - 69 All ....3923912  Retainer firewall wiring [13" O.L.] gen. and forward lamp harness to rad. tie bar [Note 1]

Note 1 reads - Loose trough type wire and hose retainer [rubber] use at cowl or radiator tie-bar locations as service replacement for similar retainers which are part of wiring harnesses.

So the iron intake bb's did get some masking [pump neck, pad, bypass] and it looks as though the bypass mask was big enough to keep most of the paint off the hose?
I think you got a couple of runs there firstgen!   Smiley

So, finally pulled my pump to look for this date code and still couldn't find one. Then stripped all the paint off and discovered an AMC logo stamped into it.

It does have the correct pulley as per below [looks like original phosphate under the black paint.]

So, I'm now on the lookout for a pump that has a reasonably correct date code to suit a 12c 68.
Any ideas what date would be correct?
Maybe others could chime in with what their build dates v. pump dates are.

These housings look good
though it appears that the 'conning tower' is internal to the cover, not external like originals.

hmmm....never noticed this before. Here's what I have. First pic is nos, 2nd pic is good used. Wether it is original production line or not I can't be sure.
But it certainly is paint, looks like a dull aluminum.

What does the seller mean by "has the correct notches around it " ?

Do you know what week the first L35 was built.

Closest I can pin it to for Camaro is November 1966, so yes, there may be some T11 L35 67 Camaro's.

...we found the 69 Hugger Orange color matched almost spot on ....
Very interesting. Here in Au my brother and I used GM-H Sebring Orange, a color used on '69 Monaro's and Torana's.
It too is a very close match like the Hugger Orange.
Did he add a flattener to the Glasurit paint? Looks good!  Smiley

Hi Kurt, Opera shows an empty picture frame in the last post which should be 'Chevelle Impala green tip dipstick.jpg'
When I try to open the pic via the link under the frame, it downloads a 94k file but windows pic viewer says it's corrupt.
I think it's a pic I uploaded to crg many moons ago - not to worry.
Cheers, Rob

Those are dated 3/67.
My bad - DF rims. I had 7" on the brain when I made the post.  Roll Eyes
Still, I think the amount of over spray onto the rim OD would be highly variable, only the over spray onto the rear of the rim would have any consistency to it.

Hi, if I view this thread in opera, all pics bar one [the last one - just an empty frame] are visible, but in IE 11, none show, not even empty frames.

Wow, none of the K17's I have, have over spray on the inner tyre area like that.
I guess those are K18 or K19 rims [15"] and maybe had a different spray gun operator, who went a little higher over the rim edge with the gun.

Any pics of the rear side [and maybe front side] of those rims?

27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rally wheel color - the black primer on: December 17, 2014, 08:14:55 PM
Just missing the Argent silver over spray.

Do you mean in the back of the rim? It's not obvious, but there are over spray patches of argent, one in the pic at about 7:00 o'clock plus others out of shot with a light haze of argent over the whole back side.
Yes please, the more pics the better  Smiley

Hi crew, sorry to raise yet another thread on this topic, of which there are numerous already, but I'm still puzzled about the black primer.
Other posts have mentioned that the flowcoat primer was semi-gloss which is something I would have expected anyway, but I've just picked a set of original K17 11 30 XG rims and the primer on the inside, under the tyre, looks quite glossy as per below pic.
The rim on the right is one of the set of 4, the one on the left is another rim I'm restoring which I've sprayed with some full gloss black lacquer onto the cleaned bare steel.
It's pretty hard to pick any difference in the gloss.

The rear does look flatter, but mainly because of the argent overspray which is heavy in patches where it scored a direct hit through the slots and lighter elsewhere from just settling out of the air.
Being enamel, it would have stayed wet in the air for some time [hate the stuff - gets on everything!]

Thoughts/comments appreciated as always.

Just for the record, an original wheel from my 68 dated k1 7 11 30 xg showing the pooling black paint from the dipping/flood spray, inside the back and on the outside directly under. No gray.

Thanks, I was thinking it was more flat than the dash.

Yeah sorry, the gloss terms are easily mixed up. That's what I was meaning but got my sheen order wrong.
This article gives the correct order [I think]

Masking is one way, but the tight radius's might be tricky.
