I wonder, was there some order the stamping occurred?  Was the car inspected in a certain sequence?

Mike

6q6qAll three inspectors (Body, Paint and Trim Shop) were stationed at the end of the Fisher Trim Shop, just prior to the point where the body was shipped "through the wall" to Chevrolet; they worked independently.
So does the green vs orange hold true if inspectors rotated on and off-shift independently and only cars which came through during shift change had the POSSIBILITY of having different color stamps?

His had BLACK and the PTB on the pass side but no sequence number on the firewall, it was  (80) on the top of the fuel tank and the top of the heater box.

Thanks again Jerry!  I found a link to a larger version of that picture on this site:




Anyone else notice the grease pencil mark on the firewall above the top heater hose? SO? SQ 5O?

I was asked for a color match on the Yellow.
The only way I can give a color match is through using a Pantone book.

The Pantone number which I used is 3945.
**If you put the paint on thin the black of the case will cause the yellow to go to the green side.

Better Photo of the cloth type seal...
So Steve are there others out there?

Here's member John Karvonen's freshly restored stunning 68 Z.

The color on the 68 was so beautiful, although it is close to the 67 it has more green in it.

Steve,
Yes it is secured with the cloth type seal.
The last pic above shows the weave through the glass just above and to the right of the glass stay.
I can get some more photos, however I beleive the above pic illustrates the seal well.

Here are some detailed photos of the glass and bed.





You can clearly see where the suede was broken with a hard tape line.

LOL... My great grandfather used to say there were two places you didn't want to be in the summer... Hell and Columbia SC.

First I degrease everything then evaporust or Safest rust remover to remove the oxidation then boeshield, followed by correct lubrication according to the Fisher Manual.
I have not had issues with my windows rolling up with ease nor latches sticking etc.

Here are the set I recently refurbished from the 69 X66 conv I am currently painting, BTW this car had 2 repaints and nothing on the window mechanisms.

I love Olympic Gold and white on the Yenkos, if it (gold white) were available without having to get the white Vtop it would look great on a Z or L78 as well!

James,

  Not meaning to change the thread, but I can't help notice your fender inner sections don't have full coverage of blue paint (I can see primer along the metal folds).
That looks pretty 'factory' to me and nice. Was it like that originally on the one you restored? Being they were sprayed by hand I can certainly understand how that final finish came about.

Mike

First I was fortunate enough to have access to the car Lloyd currently owns for about 5
I set them up on a "buck" as described by JohnZ with about a 2" gap between the panels, and let the paint fall where it did.
I am painting a 69 X66 conv for a customer now and the same will apply for it, although with silver over gray primer it is difficult to tell where the transition occurs...

Here are some firewall pics of the silver laying over the gray...

Is that Kevin Hand's old Gold Car?
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z/28 Correct leaf springs, where to buy? on: December 04, 2013, 04:20:48 PM

If these are the springs which were in the car upon Lloyd's purchase then they are correct NOS GM springs for a 69 Z28 and as stated have no more than 3 years of compression set into them.
 I have the Big Block 725's here.

The M15 is difficult to read as it appears as a M18 except at the perfect angle.

The whole thing is double imaged on the windshield and is in a 12C 69 Big Block Conv. upon close inspection the glass doesn't appear to have been removed at any point.
