601  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Date code on '67 Steering Gear box on: November 06, 2010, 12:12:30 AM
rskev> The box was painted black over rust, so I started with Zip Strip paint remover.  Then several times of spraying on Muratic acid, followed by Krud Kutter , a Must for Rust, rust remover.  The nice thing about the Krud Kutter, a Must for Rust, is you don't rinse it off.  Allow it to Sun dry or wipe it dry with old rags, it leaves some kind of coating that inhibits the part from quickly surface rusting again.  It can be wire brushed and painted over.  I intend to paint the box with Cast Blast, the box is supposed to be natural cast finish.  The top cover (Aluminum), and the round front cover also (Aluminum) should be left natural.

603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Correct Window Molding clips on: November 03, 2010, 02:31:40 PM
  I have an early build (11A - 66) '67 Coupe no Vinyl Roof.  I am trying to find out what are the "correct" Windshield side and upper molding clips.  Also "correct" Rear Window molding clips.  Anybody have part #'s ?   I'm seeing different ones offered, and they don't coorespond with what is on the car.  Maybe they have been changed.
604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Q-Jet Date Codes on: November 02, 2010, 11:09:29 PM
I am also looking at a couple of #7029202 DH carbs. ,  the date supposedly is on the base plate.  One is 032   2,  the other is 2   22G.  I'm assuming the first is julian date 032 or 1 st. of Feb., what's the extra 2?   The second I'm assuming the date 22G is the 22 nd. of July, again, what's that first 2 for?  Thanks for any help!
605  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 rear brake drum & front rotor P/N's and date codes on: October 28, 2010, 11:48:20 PM
  Can anybody give a quick lesson on how to read these Brake Drum date codes?  ie; W-12X , W-14X , W-1X
606  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Date code on '67 Steering Gear box on: October 28, 2010, 10:59:51 PM
  I am restoring a LOS 11A build '67 Coupe.  I have found and decoded many of the correct date codes.  I am now in the process of cleaning up and restoring the P. Steering Gear box.  I found the date code stamped on the aluminum cover on top, it is 276 6 (I will attach picture).  I went to a 1966 Julian calendar and figured out that day 276 was a Sunday, could that be right?
607  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Reproduction Seat Belt Tags on: October 23, 2010, 02:00:00 AM
>tim69camaro;  that is a Motor City Muscle listing which is in actuality a branch of InLine Tube.  I bought some of these tags, the printing is nice and near correct, but the fabric is not silk (or whatever)like originals.  It is a vinyl with a finish made to look like silk.
608  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 vent window frames on: October 12, 2010, 11:48:12 PM
OER now lists the complete reproduction Assembly for $179.95.  Has anyone had experience with these?  I have all the original parts, but it is very expensive to get them replated.
609  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Pressed in bumper nut on: October 05, 2010, 10:28:11 PM
I have found that most of the Repops. don't have the correct nut attached.  They are usually a hex nut.
610  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Looking for owners with original early build '67 cars on: September 16, 2010, 04:38:23 AM
>nuts4coke; Thanks that's exactly what mine looked like before I took it out.  The ground wire is "tucked" in around the center of the rubber disc.  Goes 3/4 of the way around, probably really have to know what you're looking for.
611  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: AMK Products finish question on: September 16, 2010, 04:24:22 AM
I have bagged and mark most of my original Bolts and fasteners. When cleaning them up,(after 43 years)most of the time it is hard to tell what the original finish and/or the head markings were.  Most of the time I end up going to my AMK book to find out. On the back cover they have a description of their codes for different finishes.  Most of the time their codes make sense.  As for markings, I guess you have to trust someone.  It's still better than just using "generic", unless of course your just building a "Driver".
612  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Seat Belt Buckle Coach Emblem? on: September 14, 2010, 07:30:24 PM
They make the same kit for '67 Standard Buckles, but I don't need the whole kit, I just need a couple of the emblems.  And yes, they used the Coach Emblem early(which mine is an 11A) builds with standard Buckles.
613  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Seat Belt Buckle Coach Emblem? on: September 13, 2010, 07:02:57 AM
   Anyone know where I can get just the Coach emblem for '67 standard seat belt buckles?  Thanks!

spb180; as tmodel66 pointed out above AMK does put together kits.  Depending on what you need, it might be more economical and I believe they know which finish is correct.  They do have a phone# - 540-662-7820, give it a try and see what kind of tech. service you get.   With everything they offer, I would tend to think that they keep on top of what is correct for what application.

Does anyone out there know where I might be able to get one of these triangle shaped tags reproduced?
