I've been looking at this for my current project ... keep the original AM and play your iPhone/iPod through it - http://rediscoveradio.com/

There is a book which some locksmiths have that have this information.  These books used to be at the dealers, but years ago the dealers gave them up and they started showing up at swap meets such as Carlisle and the locksmiths bought them up ... you may even find one on ebay from time to time, but I haven't looked.  They were marked "confidential" if I remember correctly.

I don't know if its the same one or not.  This one didn't look like it needed "restored" as it presented very nicely from what I recall.

I saw this car at the 2007 and 2008 All GM Nationals/Camaro Nationals in Carlisle.  Here are some pictures

Okay, I bought the paint today, but won't get a chance to spray for a few weeks.  I'm having the windshield removed tomorrow morning which will give me access to the top of the dash for paint and allow me the opportunity to clean, prep and paint the windshield channel for a complete repair.

My PPG jobber crossed the numbers for me as follows:

Yellow - PPG # 81585 (Dupont # 9383LH)
Flat Metallic Dark Gold - PPG # 22822 (Dupont # 9378L)
Semi-Gloss Dark Gold -  PPG # 22843 (Dupont # 9405L)
Semi-Gloss Dark Gold Metallic - PPG # 22849 (Dupont # 9406LH)

The PPG paint is available in laquer with the correct glosses.  I had them mix it up in the Deltron line for better durability.  I choose the yellow (PPG # 81585) of course as well as the Dark Gold (non-metallic) (PPG # 22843).

Now if someone could just give me the interior dye codes I would be all set!

Thanks again everyone.

Bryan

Does anyone know the interior dye codes?  My jobber says that that they can probably get me the correct interior dye however they state that it would be easier for them do to that if they had a code for the yellow and gold dyes.  I know that the restoration parts houses carry these dyes, but I would rather deal with the local guy if I could.

Thanks again for all of your help thus far!

I sincerely appreciate everyone’s assistance.  So far it looks like the top of the doors and the top of the interior rear quarter area should be 9383LH –( Yellow).

The top of the dash should be 9378L (Flat Metallic Dark Gold)

The face of the dash and steering column should be either 9405L (Semi-Gloss Dark Gold), or a 9406LH (Semi -Gloss Metallic Dark Gold).  None of the photographs I have of Yellow or Gold Interior 1967s are clear enough to determine whether the paint was metallic or not. 

I’m leaning towards not, but can’t be sure.  Any further insight would be much appreciated.

Thanks again!

Thanks!  Which gold was used on the dash for the 707 interior?

I'm getting to the point in my restoration where I need to start thinking about the paint for the interior.  I know the dash is gold and the tops of the doors and the tops of the rear inner quarters are interior yellow.

What are the paint codes that you guys are using to replicate these finishes?  My jobber carries PPG.

Thanks

Good morning!

I guess that I should update this post with what I finally decided upon.  After looking all over I finally choose a camouflage paint.  I’ve attached a picture of the can.  I purchase it at Tractor Supply.  I don’t know if it has enough “blue” to it, but it is a paint and not a primer which appealed to me.  It is close and will work for me. 

The picture of the painted springs is not the best and doesn’t show you the true color, but this is the only picture that I have at the moment and at least gives you an idea.

Thanks guys!

Bryan

These appear to be rubber reproductions.  I don't know how they fit/look compared to originals but I found them by googling the number http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/20569/Rubber-body-plugs-correct-pair/
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Has anyone seen one or both of these two Camaros? on: November 30, 2012, 03:18:10 PM
Sorry to hear of your stolen Camaros ... I ran them both through the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) and neither are listed as registered.   They were probably rebadged and VINs swapped.

Daniel was nice enought to send me a picture of his 1969 Camaro's rear leaf springs.  They look GREAT, but I think they replicate natural steel and not what was correct/original for 1967 .... so the question remains, what product can I use to replicate the original finish on the 1967 leaf springs??? 

x77-69z28 thanks for the confirmation on the color.

Does anyone have a picture of springs painted the smoked grey?  It seems like it might be a little dark???  Here is a picture of an original spring ... this is under the pad and you can see the color is light and has a bluish tint.
