Hydraulic or Solid lifter and if hydraulic A/C or no A/C...

The main thing you need to realize about build sheets and many other paper products from that period is that the chemistry used in the paper making (pulping) process was acidic. At the time acid was the cheapest easiest way to break the fibers down, the archival implications were not fully realized until later and by that time the process was changed to a more neutral / basic process. 
The acidic nature of the pulping process is what causes old newspapers to turn yellow and begin deteriorating. The best solution would be to take it to someone who specializes in old books (most towns have some one like this) they will be able to stabilize the paper by nuetralizing the acid in the paper with different chemicals.
Then they will tell you the same thing... keep it out of the sun... mount it using non acidic archival mounts behind glass with a UV filter on the glass.

Linen or Wove is the texture...

If you are going to have it laminated make sure it is archival quality... or you can put it in an archival quality photo slip cover... then keep it out of the sun!

The strip paint over sprayed into the well area, over the phostphate black wiper linkage and sometimes over sprayed out from the front edges of the cowl panel.

This is what confused me. It sounded as though only the stripe paint going thru the cowl grill openings got stripe color on the cowl.
Gary...Please do not credit me with the above statement.... I copied and pasted it from the 5th entry in this thread... it should be attributed to the author...Dave69X33.
I was merely illustrating that the statement was not correct and that the CRG report should be referred to.
1191  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 20, 2006, 10:29:20 PM
The wiper grille was striped off the car.
The cowl top was white/blacked out before the car left fisher's paint lines before the grille was even striped.

John,
I had read that and fully believe that is what took place... I was theorizing on the3 black overspray on the white in the wiper cowl...
I guess it was sprayed near the base of the windshield and around the wiper arm posts in order to ensure that there would not be white showing through the gaps around them.
1193  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Under hood weather stripping and decals on: September 20, 2006, 03:59:23 PM
Not the cowl to hood seal on a camaro... the one for a GTO or Chevelle. It is very different.
Maybe the cowl to hood seal on a second gen Camaro... if you can take a picture of the cross section with a ruler showing the width and height that would be very helpful.

Here is a pic of the differences of the suede vs the lower or front of dash black.

For gods sake don't let the transmission shop glass bead it or blast it with steel shot or something like that... they will ruin the finish and it will never be the same.
1196  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Under hood weather stripping and decals on: September 20, 2006, 12:32:31 PM
If it is not being repopped take a piece of the old one and compare it to the cowl to hood seal (on the top of the wiper cowl) on a late 68- 72 A body or B body GM car... it looks very close to them. If they are not close post a photo of the cross section... I have some other ideas on close matches.
1197  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 wiper transmission and cowl plenum area color on: September 20, 2006, 10:32:29 AM
Gary you are correct... I thought that the thread did a pretty good job of illustrating the sequence of events...

From my observations of original cars & the CRG report the following is the order I believe was followed for the Black Car...
1. Body (minus front dog house) painted main color, cowl grille hanging in the pass side window and painted body color at the same time.
2. Wiper cowl blacked/ whited out
3. **Dash color painted** / firewall blackout done
4. Stripe painted on Fisher Assembly (body shell with doors and deck lid installed) in repair booth - cowl grille and spoilers striped off the body.

 *interior dash color may have been painted and masked off between 1 & 2 however there is some black overspray on top of the White in the wiper cowl which means either there was some black touch up after the white was sprayed (very likely as it is only at the base of the windshield around where the wiper transmission posts come through the upper cowl support) or the black on the dash was sprayed after the white (not too likely as the overspray does not appear to be velvet textured... it appears more like the 30 or 60 deg gloss black)

In this one you can clearly see where the VIN stamp chipped the paint and then something was applied to protect the bare metal.
This is obviously an original paint car....
Also Note that the dash color was sprayed after the exterior paint and the stripe white out.
