331  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: black on tailpan on ss cars on: July 28, 2009, 01:46:43 PM
Jim Mattison is also the guy that insists my 67 Pace car was built with a 427 even though I have the GM work orders calling for a 396. JohnZ also insisted his steel brake lines around the master cylinder came painted black. Lots of people have expertise, just not in all areas. Jerry MacNeish wrote books on Camaro's and in the books called out Satin I believe but even Jerry recently stated he looked at a very orig 68 and it was very shiny and might have to make a change to his book. Brian Hendersen of Supercar Workshop does what are considered the best Camaro restorations there are also says they are gloss. He was a top judge at Camaro's at Carlisle for years.

"Listen to the experts on this because you nor I are one of them."   And the experts are ?  And you know I am not a expert because ? I have been collecting and working on Camaro's for probably 35 years and have owned probably a couple hundred. I feel pretty confident that the examples I posted were not shiny because of being waxed over the years. I make no claims to be the expert but I know what I have seen over the years and I try to pay attention to orig cars.  The Yenko was a 8000 mile car and the green L78 is a maybe 12000 mile car ?

The green L78 I posted pics of is one of the most orig untouched Camaro's I have ever seen. It has a gloss tail panel. There is no way it is the same paint used to paint the firewall. I didn't pay any attention to the rockers to see if they were the same paint. Once again I would like to see a orig paint low mile survivor with Semi or satin or flat on the tailpanel.

The Dupont guy probably  read in a magazine that they were satin...

340  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: black tail panel on black ss 69 on: April 20, 2009, 09:05:00 AM
But is it gloss or satin like everyone seems to be painting theirs ? Is it orig. paint ?
341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: anyone know who manufactures the 67-68 Z28 reproduction headers? on: April 02, 2009, 06:12:36 PM
I  had Jere Stahl make me a set for a 67 Z a few years back and they were about 600.00 and very nice. He said he still had some orig flanges.

Use Palmettos stuff. It is cheap and easy to use. You basically add some to water and boil it in a stainless pot on a gas grill...Or in the house if you can get away with it. Pour clean bolts in and stir them like soup. In about 10 minutes you have phosphated bolts. Works great.

345  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Camaro trunk custom close in or divider boards on: January 29, 2009, 11:33:30 PM
I would rather have the trunk space. Most people make templates out of cardboard then copy them on thin plywood ,cover them with something and screw them down. I'm not a fan of it. adds weight and takes up room. If you ever decide to try Power Tour you will be wanting all that trunk space. Or make hidden doors in the panels to hide stuff behind it.
