Thanks Dave,
 I have'nt had to replace any for that reason and yes the casting is different. Can't see ever having to replace any so I'll have them for another 22.

 Afternoon,
    I've had a pair of new control arm shafts for 22 years. Do they have value for a correct restoration of a valuable car or are they just over the counter replacements?  My Jane cars don't justify using correct parts that belong on a 50k or higher car.

    Casting #381904 GM 40
Thank you

 Thank you. I do understand paint deterioration. The different appearence between the dash and door tops of relics Ive had  is substantiated by this info. That is why I'm glad I found this site. I've done many jobs and some for people who claimed to possess a wealth of knowledge. Even about their own high $ cars.

My 67, origionally 717 standard had non-chrome A-pillars and the one I junked had chrome pillars/deluxe gut.  I just have never seen a suede 67 and want to know why. I have not had a 68 of my own since '82. Going to get one sorry uncut one in a month and I'll be curious about dash.  Thanx.

 I stand corrected. The 5 stars know more than I. Why then didn't the '67 code 717 I parted out not have a textured dash? The car was parked in the 70's w/ 34K after it got popped in the nose. This car was never taken apart. A search finds someone(Mark?} stating they were usually painted suede. What does that mean? Because I would like to paint my black dash if this is correct.

The generals must have a lot on the plate today too. They didn't have a suede texture. That full gloss assessment again. Interior: Have them cross PPG 9266 ( industry standard semi-gloss) if they don't shoot that brand. If they have black lacquer in their mixing system they will know the aspects of full gloss lacquer.

  Try that red rectangle at the top of the page to help narrow your search. Use the words in your questions to do a keyword search in the search option. Past posts can be tremendously helpful. Print the pertinent info. and hand it to your painter so there is no discrepency This should help you answer some of your Q's for your cramming for the final. I'm sure by the end of day your situation will be resolved.

   Hi, I looked back through posts and used different keywords in the search engine but I cant find info.
Somebody recommended a cleaning/rust converting detailing product with before and after pics of an engine    (Not a chevy engine)

It was a  base model 69 survivor that the gentleman posted. Thank you, Scott

 You may also have a check valve proplem with the master.

 This should be in the Maintenance section. But if the piston is not returning in the master it will not function properly. And the round metering valve still may be at fault.   Once again-- new does not mean good.

Thank you John. I haven't had to purchase a set for drums in years and your explanation clarifies the pics dispayed by vendors.
778  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Front Disc brake lines on: August 12, 2008, 07:12:00 AM
  You've sparked my curiosity. I have ordered these from different vendors and they have come with the correct collar. Even my local parts store.  However it seems now that 2 vendors do not show collar in the catalogue any longer. Rick's First does show collar. You will have to call to verify product description depending on which vendor you prefer. It may depend on their supplier and the catalogue picture update. Regardless, the major vendors are not the only way to obtain parts. You may try: Master Power Brake

I have not used them so I cannot verify their reputation.

www.autocolorlibrary.com     There's your source. Or one of them anyway. DO NOT let the body shop flatten the exterior color. I would think they would know better. Not to make you nervous but how many restos have they done?

 Good call John. Did not think to use pinging for synonym for "rattle"
