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.
772  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.
774  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.
775  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.
776  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.

Argent silver -- PPG code: DQE 8568
778  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Royal Plum..?? on: November 01, 2008, 05:54:12 PM
No, it's not origionally MM. I built what I wanted. I've had this since '83. Took years to decide on a color. Complimented on color often. "Different" they say.  Doing an origional '68 Code 00 now. Not 50K cars but they work for me. And I drive them...often.
I don't post pics often so this may not show the size I want. We'll see.
779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: breather hose filter on: November 01, 2008, 10:13:32 AM
Part I have was manufactured by Fisher Corp.,  PAT. #3287094 ( Patent not Part) Would it's use be incorrect without RPO to substantiate?
780  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Interior roof liner on a '67...installation? on: November 01, 2008, 07:10:02 AM
   It's easier to do than to explain in two sentences. If you are frustrated before you have begun as stated then you may have set yourself up for more of the same. It's really not difficult. It requires patience. I'm not sure why you cannot take advantage of your rotisserie but it doesn't matter. I'll touch on a few points, the headliner will "teach" you the rest. Get many vice grip clamps. Put screws in to locate any hardware mounting locations after install. Lay it out prior to installation to acclimate and flatten. Apply adhesive to both car and liner and let sit(obvious?). Pull the front and back taught at middle. Work in increments outward. Applying cement as you go at times. You'll have to slice the bow sleeves back. You simply have to work the perimeter slowly re-adjusting as you go. The part that requires patience and more working is the tack strip where the sail panel is. Sometimes pulling it taught there and using widemouth clamps helps. Install trim moldings an voila! Believe it or not any small wrinkles will dissipate. Contact cement is cooperative. You can re-adjust required areas. The moldings can be pulled off in places and the liner pulled tighter as needed. Then just push them back on. 
   You will get a multitude of on-line techniques. Patience and self observation are the key elements.
