 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.
773  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. 
774  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: interior dash paint code on: August 08, 2008, 08:44:59 PM
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"
776  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Intake Manifold on: August 08, 2008, 11:21:33 AM
I never drive in winter. Did a frame off nut & bolt but I run my cars. Besides its a Jane built in stock fashion but what I wanted. MM / Parchment deluxe. I agree to stay away from RPM style.  I like the Snowflake but it's worth $ that can be put into another build. and my spare Performer may work good as well. More research to do. Thanks.  Scott
777  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 327 noise.? on: August 08, 2008, 07:39:16 AM
Does the noise occur when the car is parked and you crack the throttle? And can you hear it under the hood coming from the motor? Is it a steady or inconsistent sound? Yes, it is difficult as a "rattle" would indicate something other than the engine. Pointing more towards a loose baffle as the change in flow of exhaust and the motion and torque while driving distrupt the innards.
778  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Intake Manifold on: August 08, 2008, 07:24:10 AM
 It's been on the motor for 13K mi. already. Seems that it's worth a lot more to someone who can use more for origionality. Correct, found out the Air-Gap is not the way to go for my driving requirements. I like my low end. Thanks.
779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wipers ? RS ? on: August 07, 2008, 04:25:32 PM
Nigel, In what catalogues are you looking? Mine all call for one switch type, but choice between imported or oem style. Perhaps the vendor you are dealing with is referring to a 68 RS switch which has vacuum ports. I just parted out a 67 RS and its the same as my non RS.  Scott

I have a 70 LT-1 intake(3972110 dated 10/20/69) on my 67 that I believe deserves a proper home. I humble myself by saying performance upgrades are not the area which my knowledge lies. My driveline specs are as follows: 67 327, .010 over, stock pistons, 63 vette heads, mild cam ( can't locate specs) stock dist. ( switched vacuum as John Z. suggested ), stock exhaust manifolds, Holley Street Avenger 670CFM ( should be 570 ), 2 1/2" Flowmaster w/ crossflow muffler, M-21, 3.08 posi(which will be changed to 3.55's or at least 3.31's.)  I know I should run a dual plane and is the popular Air Gap manifold a good substitute? I also have an older Edelbrock Performer but I don't like the fact it is dual duty Holley/Quadrajet. I drive my car, rarely beat it, cruise the back country roads. Or should I just run the Snowflake? Thank you, Scott
