661  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Restoring Early '67 Sub-frame on: November 11, 2009, 11:04:57 PM
  Just thought I'd come on and post some pictures of how my Sub-frame restoration is going.   Doing it myself with the help of a couple talented friends.  I got it sandblased 2 weeks ago finally, we have had a lot of rain here kind of held up progress.  Then took it to my brother-in-law who is a professional welder for some repairs.   The 4 rear mount holes were rusted, so I got a kit from Rick's that consisted of 4 washers, he welded those in.  Then there was a like rusted through crack under the drivers side of the Radiator.  He cut out a like 2" X 4" section and welded in NEW correct guage.   And then, in the front center there is a like 9" long brace that somehow got "crunched in", he heated and straightened that.  We did some other minor repairs, and it's lookin' good.  The whole thing is sprayed ACE Rust Stop Satin Black, looks nice. Wink
662  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early '67 Sub-frame date code? on: October 31, 2009, 10:46:40 PM
   I have been cleaning up my Early '67 Sub-frame, (no holes) in front horns.   I found some sort of a code, (maybe just partial) on the ouside of Pass. side frame rail.   I think it might be a Date code???  I am attaching a sketch of what it looks like, as I don't know if I can get a clear enough picture.  Any ideas???

  Mine was still pretty pliable.  I ran a small flat screwdriver around the edge of the glass.  VERY CAREFULLY.  I started across the bottom and worked my way up the sides. There is only a small lip there.  Once you are most of the way up the sides, you will be able to just pull the top out. I didn't try to take the Gray rubber out of the housing.  I never found a way to do that, and in the end, I didn't have to.  To put it back together I just did the reverse, using a Popsickle stick so as not to scratch the Glass.  I am attaching a photo of finished project.(Not the best color)

 I "POP" riveted(3/16" alum.) the Grille together(correctly per your advice).  Then used a Dremel tool and ground down the "broke off nail" flush, then mixed up a little JB Weld and smoothed off the head.  Then I sanded it with my Dremel tool.  Then painted it by hand with a small Hobby Camel hair brush with a Bright Silver.  Looks almost original.  Looks nicer than screws and nuts.  Thanks for your help and advice!

   The original Gray rubber or vinyl, whatever it is cleaned up nice, I left it in.

  Thanks for the info. Guys!   I got hold of Paragon, they only stocked the Glass for '67 'Vette, but I took the chance that they were the same.  They are the same, I recieved the glass today, it's in and looks GREAT !   Just wanted to Thank you guys that helped.
667  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: production run numbers on: October 23, 2009, 12:44:39 AM
 I have an earlier run 11A (66) Los. Coupe.  Right door is H 43, left door H 42.   I believe 11A would be about week 44, so mine are much closer.
668  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Original 67 Block on: October 23, 2009, 12:35:03 AM
   If I read your report on 67 Engine pad stampings correctly, mostly only Z/28 and SS 350 Blocks recieved a partial VIN.  Is that correct?  I am pretty sure I have the original engine, but became a little alarmed when I started reading about a partial VIN, and mine doesn't have one.   My car is an 11A built LOS stadard V8 coupe, 327 2 bbl. w/Powerglide.   It has 3892627 Engine casting, the Engine pad reads V1026ME, if I am decoding this correctly.  It was built at the Flint,MI. plant- (V) 10 -(10 th mon.) 26 -(day) ME (327/210 hp w/Powerglide)  The Block has a casting date on it of J 17 6, I decode as (Oct. 17 -66).  Is this correct?  Thanks!

   I have seen some "restored" Inside rear view mirrors for Sale.   They talk about the Glass being "resilvered", does anyone here know of a place that does this service?   My original mirror is in good shape, except for the plating.  Thanks!
670  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Bolt for '67 Rear Bumper Bracket on: October 07, 2009, 09:31:44 PM
Thanks for your reply!   I hadn't noticed, but now that I checked you're right, 2 of the mdo have 1" washer and the rest are 1 1/8".
671  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Correct Bolt for '67 Rear Bumper Bracket on: October 06, 2009, 02:53:54 AM
   I have looked at my '67 AIM, I'm trying to figure out how long #3909140 is.  It says in the AIM this bolt replaced #3831892 which I believe was 3/8" -16 X 1 1/2".   I know it is supposed to have the point on the end with a 1" captured flat washer.  I have several that are 1 1/2" long, and I think 4 that are only 1".   This is the bolt that attaches the Rear Bumper Bracket to the Body.  I believe there are 8.   Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
672  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Standard Grille on: October 03, 2009, 12:28:51 AM
Hi Jon, thanks for the reply.  I found a picture that shows the tabs I'm speaking of, in the picture they are showing them on the bottom.   But I trust your judgement more, I'm not even sure they know the difference.  I'm just attaching the picture for reference.   
673  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 Standard Grille on: October 02, 2009, 04:31:49 AM
  I am restoring my '67 standard Grille.   I am using an NOS #3891693 center Grille.   The Grille has 3 extra tabs with no holes in them on one edge of the backside, do these tabs go on the top or on the bottom?   Thanks for any help!
674  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 67 Lower Grille Molding on: September 17, 2009, 02:54:05 PM
  I am looking at a Lower Grille molding on EBay for '67 Standard Grille.  Picture looks to be for lower grille it is NOS in box part # 3914771.   The Camaro AIM states #3891692.  Did they change the part# somewhere along the line?
675  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early '67 Power steering box on: September 10, 2009, 12:17:25 AM
  I am currently in the process of doing a complete restoration of my Early (no holes in frame horns)'67 Sub-frame.  Today I was cleaning up the Power Steering box, so I have some #'s for you if you're interested.   The car is an 11A (66) LOS built.   It has (according to your report the correct;   5691676 casting.  It has a 266 casting date, on the cover it has 276 6 (I believe that is actual build date?)(and would be 276 day of 66?)   Which I believe would be correct for the 11A build date of the car?   There is a 13 stamped under the 5691676, I'm not sure what that means.   I hope this info. is helpful.
