1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bumper Jack -- Original color on: October 21, 2014, 10:18:19 PM
I used Rustoleum Machine Gray for both Jack and Shocks.  I was not concerned with "spot on" originality, but wanted to be close.  I forget where but it was recommended somewhere.  My shocks aren't even spiral shocks, they're Monroe Gas shocks.  But at a glance they look right. My cars a driver, I read somewhere here on a post that I wouldn't be happy with Spiral shocks on a driver.

This is the one I used, it is a Lokar, and very easy to install.

Nice car, ever been a Carolina Blue '68 documented?  A couple of minor things I spotted,looks like it was ran without Air Cleaner at some point, and had a "backfire".  Also, description states Posi-traction rear-end, but no deal on underside of the Trunk lid. And no sign that there ever was one.

WOW!  A rare Camero! This car has the best of everything.  Really I just shake my head when I see Camaro mis-spelled.  I was at a Car Show at a Chevy Dealer earlier this fall, and they had a  fancy 18 in. wheel for a newer Camero in the window.  REALLY?Huh?  A Chevy dealer? Huh Huh

I think Im gonna do a LS swap with twin turbos to fill the gaps.  Once that is finished I plan on doing a suspension upgrade and shave the door handles, chop the top 2" and put recaro seats in and mini tub it for 20's
NOT!   Nice car, lookin' good!

I love the fall colors and old country PAVED roads.. Grin

(the indiana compacted rock roads are the worst)

great pics
Thanks!  LOL!  This was actually a gravel road, believe me the "old Girl" don't see much of that. I only went about a 1/2 mile at 15 / 20 mph.  You can't find this kind of "canopy" on the highway.

  I love the Fall colors and Old Country Roads. Cheesy
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Galvanized finish on 67-68 tail light housings, hot dipped or electroplated? on: October 16, 2014, 09:53:15 PM
I'd guess, based on volume economics, that they were stamped from hot-dip galvanized rolled sheet stock, which then required no further processing or handling.  Smiley
  I agree with that about stamping from stock. I looked at the lamp opening edges and see they are exposed steel with no galvanizing, obviously from the hole stamping process

Mike

I also agree on this process, as I saw minor surface around the edge of holes.  My 11A  LOS built car has all Phillips screws on both backing plates.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Day on the Farm on: October 12, 2014, 06:43:11 PM
  I thought this was kinda cool.  My wifes family has a tradition every year they call Day on the Farm. Her brother still lives on family farm that dates back to 1883. Today (Oct. 12) is Old Farmers Day. And her brother got married today at "D o t F".  Anyhow, my son got this pic. of the Camaro.  The pic. is not pixelated, it has a little mist of rain on it.

Mike - not on the cowl tag. I have those also. If you blow up the picture of the VIN on the door jamb - there looks to be 3
stamped numbers above the actual production number??
Chris,  No, mine just has the Vin.# and CHEVROLET  00 along what would be the top edge.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Member just purchased a 1969 X77 D80 on: October 03, 2014, 08:23:04 PM
Very hesitant to cut out the entire floor with this one since it appears to be a correct X77 D80.

Should I attempt a restoration, just stab in something to drive it until the proper drivetrain can be located or sell it as is to someone that can do the work correctly?


Welcome aboard.  In the end it's your car to do with as you please.  I would be real hesitant to cutting out the floor pan route.  Remember that the original drivetrain may never be located, so I would go the route of restoring it and putting in a period correct drivetrain.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / White paint on 67 LOS Cowl Tag on: October 03, 2014, 05:40:00 PM
I certainly don't want to open an old wound about White paint on the Cowl Tag.  But, i read completely through the thread about White paint on the Norwood Cowl Tags, and saw no  mention if it was also done at Van Nuys.  My LOS Cowl Tag looks as if it had white paint under the black.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New guy, New project ' 67 on: October 03, 2014, 05:02:24 PM
Personally, I like the red, but I tire of seeing non-Z cars with Z-stripes.
How about this, which is what it originally looked like?

[/quote]
I like that look also.  I considered many options, even some different colors.  One option I considered was original Bolero Red with "Stinger" Hood with "Stinger" stripe.  I still 2 nd. guess that option some times.

Mike,
Interesting on the number. I know you have an 11a also. Does it have these other numbers? Mine does not.
Thanks-Chris

Chris,  Yes, mine has those #'s.  I'm assuming you're talking about the A638.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New guy, New project ' 67 on: October 03, 2014, 12:08:44 AM
Q: I was looking at your vin tag and noticed what looks like 3 numbers stamped above the production number (106 or 186?) I don't recall seeing that before. Anyone?
67rs327,  that's an inter-plant production run #, was only used in LOS.
