I was referring to the Dark Gray or Black coloring. Where is it from? Did any chemical treatments in assembly cause this dark coloring or is it road grime?


Isn't the black the first etch coat in the process and the red oxide primer in your pic minimal coverage? Like the epoxies I use today. I did not think they just blew on lacquer primers over the bare prepared metal. According to the assembly process this is what is indicated.

   There are others in different industries that perform similar tasks. The firearm, machine tool, aviation, or marine industry require proper protective coatings. I used to coat the machines with similar preservatives ( many moons ago). Further investigation led to the link below and there are others.

If you want to get the correct red for refurbishing, One Shot sign painters enamel is the ticket. 50/50 Fire Red and Bright Red.  Chromatic or HOK can be used as well. Keep in mind that the emblems have faded so buff them a tad prior to matching. Find a pinsriper or sign painter. They (we) are more than happy to help people out and it will cost you ZIP. Don't let the paint supply store talk you into buying a pint of mixed paint. It can be mixed by the tenth of a pint by moving the decimal point on the formula. I never mixed a pint for repairs when a small amount was needed. As far as the silver, I just mix what I have in stock so I can't help you there.

If you are referring to the holes next to the fender support bar mounting points; they are factory holes.

I have NOS clips if the aftermarket ones are giving you grief.

    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.
765  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.
