901  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Clarifications on the Assembly process... on: July 15, 2008, 05:19:23 PM
This is for a 69 Camaro...

1.When was the suede textured dash sprayed after the semi-gloss on the lower dash?
2.Was the suede texture used on the rear corners and edge around package tray?


3.The Assembly process says that the Vins were assigned and installed at the Chevrolet side of operations... so this means that the Vin plate would not be suede textured / or on a non-black colored interior car the vin tag would be black... is this correct?

4.The Stripes on the cowl grille were painted at Fisher, then the hood and valence stripes were done at Chevrolet... correct? This is how I understood the report.

My dad painted his 1940 Ford Woodie wagon with Laquer 20 years ago and there is nothing wrong with the paint at all. It has been touched up because it was bumped and scratched (he drives it often) but as far as quality issues... there have been none.

Now that being said and because the car is metallic I am going to go with BC and single stage stripes. That is a great compromise I had not even considered. A BC job which has been wet sanded to perfection and buffed looks as close to a rubbed out lacquer job as you can get without it actually being lacquer.

If you use some enamel reducer... NOT LACQUER THINNER... and put it on a rag and go SLOW you hould be able to find more P's T's and B's on both sides... plus you probably find something like Black scrawled across the firewall... this is what we found on the Black 04C X33.




On the TT side there is an Orange "B" visible and under the TT behind the wiring there is a "T".

910  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Lacquer or BC on: July 13, 2008, 01:50:45 AM
Would a lacquer paint job detract from or add to the appeal of a restored 69 Z?
All things being equal... 2 cars exactly the same except lacquer paint vs BC would you choose one over the other?

Thanks
James
911  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Does this site maintain a database of 69 Camaro's/VIN's??? on: July 10, 2008, 08:58:12 AM
There is no way to search the DB... it is kept by the moderators... Your informaiton will be added if you provide it... or it can be verified to be in the DB...
912  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Headers on: July 09, 2008, 11:29:22 PM
Matte Black Jet Hot Coated Hooker Super Comps... they fit great, no issues at all. BUT the car is a no power steering Z28... Really are nice headers and matte black coated is very unobtrusive in the engine compartment.
913  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Fuse Block Repair on: July 09, 2008, 11:18:05 PM
Dip the whole fuse block in safest rust remover for a day or so... remove and rinse... blow out and then spray the whole thing down with silicone...

Yea... the black 69 Z survivor has a scattershield and the remnants of a nightmare for someone... we found a shrapnel hole behind the accelerator pedal... someone was damn lucky!
I just hammered them flat and used a tig welder using filler rod as little as possible to fuse the rips back together. (unless you know where to look you would porbably not even see the repair... and I didn't even touch up the paint) 
915  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Firewall Help? 1968 z28 on: July 08, 2008, 09:38:51 AM
Better yet just cut and patch the damaged parts... post some pics of the damage and see what others think the best course of action would be...
