586  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Header panel Date code stamp on: April 20, 2010, 11:42:27 AM
 Thanks John, I found a partial 4.  All other date codes that I have found are 42 or 43. I'm assuming the car was built around 45 (1 st. week of Nov.)
587  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 Header panel Date code stamp on: April 18, 2010, 07:03:12 PM
  Can someone tell me approximately where to look for the date code stamp on a 67 Header panel?  I'm pretty sure it is the original, but it is really Heavy surface rust on the underside.  I think I read somewhere that the underside of the Header Panel was Bare metal from the factory, which would explain why mine is so rusty.  Any help is much appreciated!  Thanks!

I was told that the Metal tag was used on 10 bolt rear-ends, and that the Red Plastic tag on the plug was used on 12 bolts.

  Hopefully someone else with alittle more knowledge than myself will see this post and shead more light on the subject.  In my estimation, I would say that a 12C built car would be getting near where the changeover was complete.  Meaning that it is most likely that your car would have had the Later style Sub-frame WITH the Tie-down holes.

Rssstmac;  There is a research topic on here about the Early /Late '67 Sub-frame.  Go back click on Research Topics, then scroll down to '67 Topics.  The changeover period was No./Dec. of'66.  I have a 1 st. week Nov. LOS built coupe that has the "early" type(no holes.
591  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / What is the best way to strip Front Coil springs? on: March 16, 2010, 04:09:32 AM
   I am doing a cpmplete restoration of my early (no holes) Sub-frame.  What is the best way to strip my front Coil springs.  I have been told that sandblasting will take tempering out of the spring, is this true?   Will chemical stripping hamper the tempering?  These are the originals, and the car sat good prior to dismantling.  I don't think they have "weakened" over the years.  Thanks for any advice!!!

What Balancer did the'67 - 302 use?  Was it the same as the 350?
593  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Original finish on 67 exhaust hangers on: February 22, 2010, 01:12:58 AM
  What was the original finish on '67 exhaust hangers?  I have seen pictures(supposedly original) where it looks like they were painted semi-gloss black.  In catalogs I have seen ones that look natural bare metal, and I have seen Cad.? plated, what is correct?  Thanks for any help.
594  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67/68 vs. 69 Rear Spoiler on: February 16, 2010, 10:16:48 PM
  After much research I have come to the conclusion that what I have is a GM NOS(in box) '68 spoiler #3916633.  I found the answer to my own question above, 59 in. for the '68 vs. 61 in. for the '69.  Thanks for your help guys!
595  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67/68 vs. 69 Rear Spoiler on: February 14, 2010, 03:41:16 PM
Can someone tell me the difference in width of the rear 1/4's ?
596  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67/68 vs. 69 Rear Spoiler on: February 13, 2010, 10:25:37 PM
  I recently read in Motorbooks  Camaro Restoration Guide that a '69 Rear Spoiler will not work on a '67 Camaro, is this correct?
597  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to buy "correct appearing" ball joints? on: January 09, 2010, 12:22:21 AM
 On my '67 Upper Ball Joints I used 5/16 in. Button Head bolt(Readily available locally).  Then filled the Hex indent. with Bondo and hand painted it with Cast Blast.  Looks good.  I've attached a photo.
598  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Quarter panel stampings on: December 13, 2009, 12:03:22 AM
  What year car are you referring to?   You prabably are looking at Date cades.   The codes are stamped into metal approx. 1/8 in. tall letters, should be a letter (probably R), a space and a 2 digit #(refers to week of build).  My 11A -66 build '67(approx. week 44) has a T 43 trunk lid, a H 43 right door. and a H 42 left door.   The rear quarters have been reskinned,(before I got the car) so sorry I can't help you there.  Kurt gave me the info.(probably- R ##)
599  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early 67 Trunk Date code on: November 25, 2009, 02:17:55 PM
I got to look at the date code on my original trunk lid today(it has been in storage) the code is T 43.   Some time back I had posted the doors, they are Rt. H 43, and Lft. H 42.   I also found a code stamped in to the outside Pass. side of my Sub-frame when cleaning it up.  I now believe that might also be a Date code, I believe it is I 42.  this stamp is the same size as other Date codes I have found. There is also a larger(1/4")  O R stamped by this code.  Is this probably a Date code?   It is approx. 9" from the rear of the Sub-frame, approx. the middle of the outside of the frame.   Thanks for any input.
600  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Early '67 Sub-frame date code? on: November 20, 2009, 11:54:35 PM
  It's stamped into the steel.   The O R is 1/4" letters, and the 142 (or maybe I 42) is 1/8" letters.   If it's I 42, it is very similar to other date codes I have found on the car.  The doors are H 42 and H 43.
