946  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Clarifications on the Assembly process... on: July 17, 2008, 01:55:32 AM
Working on an early 69 Z right now (10D) and doing the dash and cowl... was there a differnence in black out procedures or dash painting from early to late... did anything change?
Was there an additional black out procedure after the spraying of the White in the wiper well?

On the Black 04C Survivor the white in the wiper well had black out overspray on it at the base of the windshield.
Was this additional black out part of the change brought about to eliminate the excessive white overspray on the early white striped cars?

Big blocks were stamped with the Assembly date and suffix code before the heads were installed... small blacks after...

The firewall had white paint pretty heavily misted down it as well... not quite as bad as the one in your book...

What's neat about this is that where the voids are on the lip where the seal pushes on... there are globs of paint which appear to have been deposited by what ever fixture was holding the panel... in the little globs you can see a bunch of differnet colors layered up... Ralley Green, red, silver... etc.

Here are some photos of a 69 cowl vent with original paint on it... has anyone else seen the stripe oversprayed so out of the norm?



Here are a few more... you can see the lack of coverage in the 2 places where it must have hung in the car...

Is it a T/A or a SCCA sedan class car? Brass tag on the cage?
951  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".

960  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
