Thanks John!   I also went to the link posted by Pete, referencing a prior posting you made where you said:
"Production-line wheels were received raw and oiled, dip-primed black, then the outer face was sprayed the required color with wheel enamel. "     

If I understand that correctly, K-H delivered the wheels to each assembly plant unpainted, raw and oiled?  and THEN the assembly plant (Norwood or VN or ?) cleaned, dip primed black, and then sprayed the outer surface with the argent enamel?   Did this happen on the Fisher side? or the Norwood assembly side?   I'm surprised I missed this fact before, and it seems a bit odd to me that they didn't have the wheel supplier provide it 'ready to mount'...??  Or was that same process used for all other major body panels provided by suppliers?    supplied raw and oiled, so every metal part when thru the same cleaning/priming, painting step in the assembly plants?

My original 9204 booster, dated 199, on my 09C (Sept '69) Z28 has the larger font (I believe)...

We know that Kelsey made the rallye wheels for GM, but did they also make the 'std' steel wheels?  If not, what other suppliers did GM use?

Yes, I've added my name to their mailing list, and asked for the 'results' of the just completed auction, but haven't received anything as yet..

Hemmings daily information had a short article on the '67 Z and that auction today (see Link); not a lot more details, but did include Hemming's writer attitudes about the car, as well as a few other prices.   I'd been interested in the two Nomads they had listed, but didn't find out about the auction until 2 days after it completed.. and I still haven't received the full auction results from Branson Auctions.

I suspect Kelsey painted the wheels prior to delivery to Chevrolet, but I also suspect they were painted to GM specs...

'Decker Manufacturing Corp'  (DMC)  but NO idea when your lug nuts were manufacturered, maybe you can research within their parts line?

*L*..  thanks Darrel!~     (IMO  GM Reconditioning black, which is a satiny, semi-glossy, semi-flatty black)..  Smiley

1967's are the most rare, and lightest of the early Z28's and perhaps has more 'racing heritage' than the other years?... and this one was supposedly restored with the help (or consultation?) of Jerry McNeish...
1466  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 124379N561026 in database?? on: October 28, 2013, 11:52:49 PM
So the current owner believes he bought a 'fake' SS, that was originally a real Z28 car?   ONE or BOTH of those two tags has to be fake, as they have the same BDY number....
Maybe someone got a deal on two fake tags??  Keeping his options open?  Smiley

Since you are doing custom paint, why not consider a complementary custom upholstery design on your car?   A good upholsterer can do wonders with only a vague idea of what you want.   In our area we have one of the best (Paul Atkins, who has done some of the most amazing interiors ever, including those of several Ridler award cars).

since we are having quite a discussion on 'gloss' 'semigloss', etc, I think it would be beneficial if we all shared a similar definition.   The following link has both general definitions, and very good technical definitions of 'gloss' from an optical perspective.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloss_(optics)

and since when we 'see' gloss, we are basically seeing the light reflected from a surface, the following definition of 'reflectance' and reflectivity is important to understand.

Having worked in the optical and imaging fields of engineering for 40 years, I would prefer if we all used similar words and definitions..  Smiley

you can remove the jack head, and take the mast to a local plating company... and reassemble yourself..
