826  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.
829  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 leaf spring finish/Plastic pads on: June 03, 2008, 09:01:14 PM
My 69 Z has the pads between the springs. They are all there and intact but one. If you need pics let me know.
830  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.
832  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.

I shrink wrapped the cables and they work perfect. Great trick.
834  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Paint on floor pans on: May 15, 2008, 04:37:10 PM
I have a Norwood 69 Z Olympic Gold RS car that is at the painter now, and I need to confirm or get your comments on the following:

Background info:

1. Currently, there is surface rust on the underside of the car, but I can see gray primer in various areas that had oil etc.  had leaked on the underside of the car.
2. I understand that some cars came from the factory with gray primer as my car has on the underside and others were painted black. I see many cars that have been restored painted black on the underside, but not many with the gray primer.

Questions:

Is it correct for the underside to have the gray primer then the body color overspray then the black overspray due to the RS option?
A few months back there was a Lemans Blue RS Z car that was a high point car that had a gray primer underside with the overspray as I have explained. If anyone remembers that car and discussion was that car done right?

Thanks
835  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: sub frame painting on: May 12, 2008, 05:39:24 AM
There really is no reference manual other than Jerry McNeish's Book. If you don't have it I recomend that be one of the first things you buy.
http://www.z28camaro.com/publications.html
It will give you the correct finishes on everything.

As far as over spray and etc... you are going to have to carefully clean and see what you find.
There are alot of very good threads over on the yenko.net site showing highly detailed restorations from the Super Car Workshop among others... they are very accurate in their replication of returning cars to how they find them... paint runs and etc on firewalls and sub frames etc.

Speaking of firewalls...I am NOT going to cover up my original P T B stampings. I know I can reproduce them but I plan on protecting them and the trim tag before painting. I may just try to touch up the firewall. But the inner fenders and the radiator support etc. need new paint. I dont want to make it look goofy of course but there will be trial and error.

I have Jerry's book. I got it the first week I had the car. I will plow through the websites and probably bug you too! I am in no hurry so I hope to do it right.
836  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: sub frame painting on: May 09, 2008, 05:30:28 AM
Yep and Endura... forgot about that... how authentic are you going back with the resto? Drips over spray the whole nine yards? I know the interior might as well be new... it is beautiful... Gold done right looks Killer...

here are some pics of a 70 Judge Conv I painted Gold...


That is a good question. I want the car to look as it did when it left the factory but I dont have any reference material to help guide me. When I did my Corvette I had the NCRS manual. Do you know of a reference manaul to use or should I research this site?

Thanks,

James

Thanks in advance for the pics...
I kinda wish I would have taken on painting the car for you... It was so original, like the black one.
It will be extremely nice when it is done. OG RS, no spoilers flat hood and V-top... can't wait to see it.
and enduro bumper Smiley

Welcome over here Lawrence... how is the Resto coming? Can't wait to see the OG car when it is done...
Sub frame was painted when it came from he manufacturer... not very good paint though.
Most of the time the paint sticks to the line clips and makes it appear as though there is no paint under them.


Thanks James.
We are suppose to take the car to the painters shop next week. I still need to remove the brake and fuel lines. I hope to get that done some time this weekend. It has been fun taking the car apart. I dont know if you remember the interior of the car but it is pretty much mint. When taking it out I could tell it had not been touched since March '69 when it was installed. The carpet date coded tag was on the carpet, the gauges had a date coded sticker on them, all the hardware was there etc. Pretty much the same for the mechanicals but not as virgin. Pretty cool stuff. I hope we can save all the original body panels. I would rather pay more for the body man to make patch panels than pay for repo body panels.

I will shoot you some pics.
839  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / sub frame painting on: May 07, 2008, 06:39:27 AM
Was the sub frame painted prior to installation? Was the fuel line on the car prior to sub frame painting? I just took my fuel line loose last night and the sub frame under the fuel line bracket is pretty much unpainted.

Thank you,

Got you...thanks
