sixt9x33rs: There are many. many different rust preventitive products on the market. I like the cosmoline product, it's heavy wax with a lot of solvent so it will spray. The military used it for long term armament storage. New black oxide bolts usually come coated with it. It is easy to remove with solvent.
I usually just spray it into a cup and coat the parts I want coated with a small brush. I would imagine you could put it over Boeshield, as always try an experment first.
Good Luck
Thanks

The springs will have to come apart to do the job right.  When going back together, we have had great success with Rem Oil.  Wipe the springs down and then using a clean shop rag, wipe the springs down with Rem Oil.  Rem Oil has teflon in it and this will keep the rust away for quite a while.

Rem oil....the gun oil?

I would not glass bead it while it's still assembled.  Take it apart and then do the parts.  Only problem with glass beading is the finish does not last long as dirt and dust will stick to it quickly.  It will look nice for a short while.  It will also have a "duller" finish as you change the petina of the aluminum.

Ok thanks for the suggestion. I am going to go on what Dutch has said below and try to find another type of stripper.

My M-21 has silver paint that I can not get off. I have tried everything so I am considering glass beading the transmission. I had this done on another car but while the transmission was being rebuilt. Is it safe to have it glass beaded while it is still assembled? Any comments, experience is appreciated.

Thanks,
I have tried a aircraft stripper that I bought from Auto Zone which I have had good luck with but for some reason I can not get it to cut this paint? I will try to locate the brand you suggested or another brand.

Thank you

   Why not just use a good grade of industrial paint stripper for aircraft (aluminum) refinishing. One brand comes to mind here is Tal Strip and it worked great on some aluminum wheels I was stripping to refinish. Don't know if it is available where you are - but I would imagine there are other brands available almost anywhere. - Randy

Sandblasting will lighten the color. They are heat treated steel and have a medium gray color. Try paint stripper. I coated mine with Eastwood Diamond semi-gloss clear with cosmoline over that. Cosmoline is available from Rick's in a spray can. I keep it on all the black oxide bolts.

Good luck
Unfortunately, I did not have many other alternatives after they painted them. I agree that sandblasting does lighten them up, but they guy did as light of a job as he could.

I have used Eastwood's clear in the past and have liked it too. I guess I will have to remove the Boeshield or wait for it to come off before I paint the springs with clear? Can I put the Cosmoline over the Boeshield?

Thanks

I coated them with Boe Shield so they would not rust.

Boeshield is not permanent.  They will rust if you don't re-coat them periodically.

ok thanks

I had my springs sandblasted and they came out really good. I coated them with Boe Shield so they would not rust.

68 and 69 are suppose to be the same?

Thanks
778  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Z bar color on: November 29, 2008, 09:49:45 PM
Is the Z-bar for a 69 Z/28 black or cadmium?

How about the clutch linkage from the Z bar to the clutch fork?

Thanks

I have a set of NOS Delco shocks in the box that look like Camaro rears and have a 1966 date part no. on the shock is 3178182

they have a "BS" decal that is 1.5 inch from top edge of shock to top of decal.

I can't find the application for these. Do you have a number for the Camaro rears?

Thanks for the location info.

Yup, it makes a difference - the french locks go between the bolt head and the washer; if you put them between the washer and the manifold, the washer interferes with bending them against the flat on the bolt head.

Are french locks installed on 69 302's?
