  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.

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.

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.

  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

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.
760  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 67-8 filler neck shield on: November 03, 2008, 12:35:15 PM
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

Interesting. Have to wait for more knowledge to be posted. Thank you Charley.
762  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: breather hose filter on: November 02, 2008, 04:17:10 PM
Would the one I posted be an OTC replacement?  Charley, do yours have a GM part# on them? My arrestor has only the info above. If indeed it is for a crossram set up or unusual substitution as John indicates, mine would not be technically correct because it has no GM part # on it, no? If yours in fact do.
763  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: breather hose filter on: November 02, 2008, 12:06:32 PM
Would this be the adapter of which you speak? There is no part# embossing.
764  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 ralley wheel paint on: November 01, 2008, 09:58:53 PM
 I only have one code for Argent in my files. Secretary copied all GM codes years ago. Info.  was copied from pages such as the link below.
 The code # would remain the same. Argent being Argent. No flattening agent equals more gloss. Your shop can pull this up on their computer mixing system database. We had microfiche Gary... old school.
