    My next is a OO like yours. As I said, I've never had a problem getting paint and obviously neither has Jerry or others. Some places don't like non-accounts. You seem partial to PPG. I've shot PPG and others as well. 
    I need OO paint so I called the PPG library today and was given an offset as it is not available mixed with the tints in the system. If you've ever mixed on a system this would be clear. My MM is a direct mix -- OO is not. It's offset is PPG 61039. It is lighter than prime. May not even be enough to tell. Once again, if you ever look at variances on a system, new cars can have up to 3, 5 or more.
    You can have it mixed in DBU or DBC (the latter my preference but more $). DBC can do something helpful other paints cannot.
    Your other choice is to shoot a lacquer panel . Then shoot a 61039 panel and see what the difference is. No matter what they are chemically different and will lay down differently. But still, the tints are not the same anyway, this is why an offset is given. So now it's up to the man using the tints to darken the prime color first mixed. Keep in mind the lacquer was never cleared from the factory. And I'm not going to get into the principles of reflection and refraction. They will make the colors look different as well. The PPG libtrary phone # is 1-800-647-6050

I've got bags of NOS locks. But they are probably still available, No?

The top of the spring gets located in the pocket in the frame first. Location is not determined by the hole or pocket in the lower control arm.

  I called one of my suppliers to place an order. They sell Dupont. I asked about your OO paint (which is the origional color of my next build by the way). Mark said no problem. Code 4910K Chromabase. I then called my other supplier because I use DBC and they said no problem. Same answer I got 4 years ago about my MM. I've had different suppliers over the years and the answer is always the same: They call the library, get the formula and that's the end of it. I do nothing more than wait for the delivery. When I had a mixing system it was easier.
  Why your supplier will not get the formula I do not know. Perhaps they do not possess the knowledge or have little desire to do so.

  I have more GM moldings than I will ever use.  This forum is not appropriate for further discussion. Send me a PM.
743  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Corvette bronze paint on: November 12, 2008, 06:59:26 PM
I never had a problem getting anything mixed. The tints used are different in a PPG DBC BC/CC system. The formula has to be converted from lacquer to DBC ( or the manufacturer of your choice). Perhaps the supply store saw the code calling for lacquer and did not want to do the conversion. Seems odd they would not help you, but not surprising.

Yes. Structural rigidity.
745  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 coupe lower windshield lower corner clip installion? on: November 07, 2008, 07:32:40 PM
Not true. The screw (hex head) can be installed in the jamb w/ a ratchet wrench or a regular wrench. The latter being a tad more difficult. This of course providing the screw hole was not filled prior to paint.

747  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 standard grill color on: November 06, 2008, 05:26:21 AM
  SEM #39143 (best), Krylon 1613 (has been changed to 51613 [sheen difference] ), or Fusion paint. Use of adhesion promotor or tie-coat is not necessary if already painted. if you have a spray gun -- PPG 9266 or SEM in quarts. If just the grill -- aerosol for convenience and you can use for interior components as well.
  It would be best to paint bezels as well to maintain sheen consistency throughout grill components.

A.) yes B.) no
749  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Radiator Paint Chipping Off on: November 03, 2008, 12:49:34 PM
If it was a repo radiator the paint and processs they use is not always best. I got lucky with SOME of them. It's best to DP-90 the bare radiator and then paint. Whatever the case, the removal of the existing failing finish is necessary followed by proper painting procedures. I've yet to have one fail.

What significance do the #'s stamped on the shield have? They are as follows and one is not entirely easy to read and the other can be inverted to read two ways:  1.)  N25?
                                                                                        2.)  6H or H9
