811  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Factory markings on: August 04, 2008, 09:42:20 PM
Is there a source that I can go to and get (look at) the suspension factory markings that generally came on the car? I know where the suspension paint went on my car I took pictures before the resto. Really looking for the chaulk marks.

thanks

I am going to sand blast the chasis, epoxy primer everything, then POR-15 the inside of the frame.

Thanks!

I will also e dip the frame. E dip is the process that helps the frame from rusting right?

I intend to drive the car but not in the rain unless I get stuck in bad weather somewhere. This is not a trailer queeen but a 36K mile car that I intend on driving. I will re install all the original interior once I get the car back.

The reason I wanted to dip the car was to protect the inner sub frame. Is this a real concern if the car is not badly rusted? One thought I had was to use some sort of tool and get POR-15 inside the frame rails.

Your comments are appreciated.

I am at a cross road with my restoration. I need to either sand blast or acid dip my sub frame, rear end, upper and lower control arms. Maybe just glass bead my control arms. Does any one have any experience with acid dipping these parts? The cost to acid dip all parts is around $350 vs. $150 for the sand blasting. The reason to acid dip is to get the surface rust from inside the sub frame out. The parts are in pretty good shape over all.

Thanks for the feedback.

819  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Steering column paint (black int) What color ? on: June 12, 2008, 08:38:42 PM
SEM Trim Black #39143 (spray can) is the correct sheen, and is much more durable than the flatter Krylon #1613.

John is this the same color that would be used to touch up around the Astro vent on the passenger side of the dash?

Thanks

Hard to say - depends on the sheen that's on there now; blending into existing paint is always an issue, vs. painting separate parts like the steering column.

OK thank you.

Dont know about the styles.

I will look through my pics on the computer. If I dont have one I will go over to the painter's shop and snap on for you and get it out.

My 69 Z has the pads between the springs. They are all there and intact but one. If you need pics let me know.
823  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 69 Heater control knobs on: May 29, 2008, 06:52:13 AM
I removed my switch assembly and during he process mildly scratched the plastic faceplate. I am considering replacing the plastic faceplate but to do so requires removing the small knobs at the end of the contol levers. I remember as a high school kid driving these cars that when those knobs fell off they were very hard to re install and stay installed. The knobs are on really secure now so my question is risk breaking the factory install of the knobs to replace a mildly scratched face plate or leave well enough alone?

My x33 car has a plastic one in it and does not look like it has been touched since original installation.

Good Luck.
825  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 leaf spring finish/Plastic pads on: May 18, 2008, 06:20:01 AM
The plastic eventually works it way out of the springs. My car has 36k miles on it and the plastic is still between the springs but has started to come out.
