2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Grille color on a X44? on: September 21, 2014, 09:11:16 AM
 I got a chance to work on a nos grill that was made from the gray plastic and it has had a light coat of silver sprayed on the center section because when wiped with lacquer thinner it was coming off as expected on my rag. The owner of the grill paid 1400.00 and it came with 2 bottom tabs broke off and complete break above the LH head light. I had always thought the centers were not painted and that was the reason for being cast in silver/gray plastic but now I can only go by the evidence I have seen on this 1 grill....?

Sorry to hear about your project....it's a shame what some people will do to turn a quick buck! you saw the rusty floor pan from underneath before buying the car? It's always best to have an inspection done by an experienced person prior to paying for any car and not to say an experienced person could find eveything if it has been covered up.Always ask for the shop that did the work when looking at any car! As the old saying goes "buyer beware"

 I assume you've got rust? It's those unforeseen problems that pop up that must be considered as well.....I've dealt with for 38 years! What about the wheel housing and condition of the other body parts you are welding the replacement parts to? These things can eat up some time! 40.00 per hr. is a fair price to have the panels done correct....nearly 40 hrs and no floors installed..Just my opinion here and best of luck with the project.

Thanks Kevin for posting that pic...Did you find any signs of it being mask off on the back side to keep from getting on the argent? I would guess the amount of overspray would vary as well?

When the grill was painted body color I know the center egg crate section was covered so did the entire back side of grill get any or have minor to alot body color overspray?Been a long time since seeing an untouched original! Any pics of original showing it mounted in front sheetmetal?

FYI I had problem with PUI sail panels after installing them the material/glue turned loose form the card board.They sent me more sets  but they done the same thing.Only when outside with the sun warming up things?I even got just the board and material using my glue and that worked for a little while but still came loose?One of the 69 sets I just layed in the back seat of a project body and after a few days they were all bubbled up too!!  Maybe it's just bad luck for me but this was on a 67 & 69 cars I'm restoring over a few month period this year.I got some from another supplier but haven't installed them yet.

 Charlie Mason paid Baldwin Auto Co. 5500.00 bucks for the 1 and only converted 67 L78 chevelle to a aluminum head 427 by Motion performance pictured in front on the dealership. He got 1 chevelle for the price of 2..  Thomas Mote gave 4280.45 to Baldwin Auto Co. for his  Motion prepped 1968 427 Camaro on 4/24/68 and drove it back home to MD.

 Retro electro has some nice motors.I just put some on my 67..Haven't gotten my relays mounted yet..........
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anybody ever follow up a listing like this to see whether it is legit or not? on: April 16, 2014, 07:55:50 PM
I'd agree something isn't right...It might be over 10 years since I first saw that same car and also on different web sites for awhile now? The ad is just fishing for desperate/unknowing buyers it seems.............
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Nov 23 & 24 on: April 08, 2014, 07:01:13 AM
How many 69 camaros sold new at Baldwin and were converted at Motion performance?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Reproduction glass with "LOF" and date codes etched. on: April 01, 2014, 08:49:15 PM
 Try finding glass that matches original and will fit correct and doesn't show the temper spots! Check your DOT numbers to see WHO actually made the glass!!  Good luck.
