<< Now I suppose GM had tin from the sixties around. I dont think so. If modern tin is so much better why did GM stamp new fenders out of full guage metal. Remember all asian tin is made from the ground up cars and appliances we send overseas. >>

It's not a matter of "having tin from the sixties around" - the print calls for a given sheet thickness, and that's what the draw, trim, flange, and pierce dies are designed to work with. Steel sheet is available in any thickness you specify, and there's nothing "special" about the sheet gauge used in the 60's; many different gauges of steel sheet are used in different parts of the car. Domestic steel isn't "virgin" either - normally it's about 40%-50% recycled material, and has been for decades; the alloying materials are what gives it specific properties.  Smiley

Steve - the photo below is typical of the 3847757-8; they're used all over the car; don't have a photo of the 7075.

It varied a lot (imagine yourself leaning into the trunk with a spray gun with instructions NOT to get any on the body color edge of the gutter around the opening); my original Norwood 02D car has coverage right up to the top of the deck lid latch, and most of the inside of the tail panel is covered, along with the hinge boxes and hinge arms.  Smiley

The 7075 screw had a hex head.

They are if you don't mind more ride harshness and squeaking  Roll Eyes
3891  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Another 1968 Z28 question - Cowl Hoods? on: December 07, 2005, 12:25:25 PM
Nope - it had a fiberglass cross-ram hood.  Smiley

Yup, that link works.  Smiley

I don't know the captured washer diameter on the screw offhand, but what you found sounds reasonable to me; AMK is about as close as you're going to find.
3894  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: aluminum intake on: December 06, 2005, 12:40:42 PM
That intake was used on the '64 Corvette 327/365hp, and on the '65 Corvette 327/350hp and 365hp.  Smiley

Link doesn't work - only takes you to the Webshots home page, not to your photos.  Huh

Original '69 spoiler fasteners were:

Spoiler-to-lower valance - #9417075 screw (#10-24 x 3/4" with captured washer) and #10-24 nut with captured washer #3759924; two center screws were the standard car license bracket fasteners.

Brace-to-fender and subframe - #3847757 screw (5/16"-18 x 3/4" with indented hex head and captured washer) with plain nut and split lockwasher.

Brace-to-spoiler - #3847758 screw (5/16"-18 x 7/8" with indented hex head and captured washer) with plain nut and split lockwasher.

Many spoilers have been broken/torn off over the years and replaced with non-standard fasteners, but the above are what they were originally built with.
3897  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ride Height Measurements on: December 01, 2005, 11:02:11 AM
Nope - the Z/28 design ride height (a function of spring height at design load) was lower than any other Camaro model.

A Camaro "concept" will be shown at the Detroit Auto Show next month.
3899  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 X77 code Camaro Many fact questions. on: November 30, 2005, 11:05:58 AM
Yes - all the visible fender surfaces are body color; the non-visible underside/back side of the fenders will only show light overspray. The separate inner fender was dip-primed or flow-coated semi-gloss black and was assembled to the outer fender long after the outer sheet metal was painted.

I'd expect to find a cast crank in a '67 350/295hp.; I believe the only Camaro small-block with a forged crank was the Z/28.
