I have seen a set of the X-33 lens for sale on ebay for as cheap as $40. I am not sure how you lost 2 because they seem like part of the lens (melted on?) but if it becomes an issue in the future it isn't to hard to locate them.

I don't know what the DMC stands for, but as Kurt has said there were sometimes more than one vendor for the same part. I have a original waffle style set on my car, although I do not know if this would have been correct.

WTG Chick, it takes some time and effort, but IMO well worth it than to have it done half assed.

Good info Festival, can you post a picture of that? We are all fans of pictures here, thanks!

what is the best price you have gotten for this? I wasn't near my blasting cabinet and asked a local shop to bead blast or sand blast some wheels, the price guestimate was around $200??? Undecided second shop same thing???  ???I can't imagine the "tumbler" is any better in price. Less man hours, but I bet they quote about the same amount, way to much for me.
1296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: CRG t-shirts - How to order on: October 26, 2013, 11:19:40 PM
I don't think we need to get to crazy with all the available options. I think the guys that are committed to ordering them will end up voicing there preference. Myself I would prefer a pull over with a hood, and then just the CRG logo on the front with website under it (like the t-shirt). But if it gets cold I will probably start with wearing a thermal under the t-shirt. It will be interesting how much the sweatshirt may run. It would be cool if someone had a vacuum sealer to suck that sweatshirt down to t-shirt size for shipping...but I am thinking in a perfect world.
1297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: October 26, 2013, 11:08:08 PM
I don't personally like the VHT "chevy orange", or the Aervoe. It sprays fine and adheres ok, but the color just doesn't look right to me. Too bright and it seems a bit to much red in it? When I look at original engines they look more pumpkin orange ( for lack of a better description). So my query would be is the quanta products more spot on to the original color?
1298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: GM silver for Rally wheels. on: October 26, 2013, 11:03:15 PM
Ok here is my 2 cents: I have a set of powder coated wheels in the correct argent silver on my impala. While they will never rust I have a couple of issues with them. Along with the wheels and anything else as Gary mentioned powder coated items have a different sheen to them, so on the wheels it looks like a slight orange peel affect. powder coating them in black first is a great idea and then scuffing out side and spraying in argent sounds good to me. BUT hold on a sec!
Glass beading or sand blasting is a quick easy way, and IMO the easiest if you access to one, but please Note* the glass particles or sand will get stuck in the cracks of the wheel where they welded the inner piece to the outer rim of the wheel. If you do not clean this they will powder right over it, and it will look like CRAP. Take the extra time to take a razor blade or utility knife into those tight areas and pry all those little bits of sand and glass out. Then take some 200 and get it in there just to get the extra dust and dirt out. I am super picky, so I have found this works best so far, so when you do powder or paint it will look really good.
Unless you plan on driving in salt paint should work just fine.

Ok, since we started this topic. Would the sweatshirts also be in blue? Are we talking hooded sweatshirts?

If those tires were on your car since 76 and then you went and sold them at the flea market, it is safe to say you got your money out of those tires! The car looks great in that photo.
1302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69Z trim rings - late build car on: October 25, 2013, 09:29:48 AM
Do all your wheels look like they have ever been repainted? Reason I ask is,  I got both styles of trim rings with my car, and my wheels have the original paint on them, and you could see where both styles have been used at one time or another.
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor" on: October 24, 2013, 11:05:41 PM
I think what Kurt is asking is who is the original dealer on the POP who sold the car in 69?
1304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor" on: October 24, 2013, 03:08:27 PM
Looks like from your pic and signature that your Gold Z 39K is also pretty original with the POP. Which car is more original? Do they both drive the same?
