31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Production Schedule around Holidays on: October 27, 2013, 07:33:52 AM
Just for clarity - lots of employees worked on paid holidays including some production activities.  Contractually, assembly plants could have scheduled production activities on any of those days - wether or not anyone would show up for work might be another matter!  Working through holidays was very lucrative though - hioliday pay plus 1 1/2 to 2 times base rate.  I worked through those holidays - paid a lot of bills with the extra $$.

Thanks Kurt!  My car was in 36B.  Sorry, but I didn't take pictures.  My daughter and grand daughter were with me - it was a great day.

OOPS!!!  sorry that they posted upside down - but you get the idea!

Saturday was great!  Got first senior in class 36G.  Enjoyed visiting with several of you.  I wasn't at the show at all on Friday.  Had "flood watch" at my daughter & son-in-law's home in Lancaster!  They have a little farm with a stream running through it.  The second picture shows a footbridge over the stream - the water is normally 6 feet under the bottom of the bridge.

I'll probably drive the '69 Pace car back & forth from Lancaster each day - park it in G55.  Gotta love AACA & Fall Hershey!

I'll be there - G54-G56 in car corral.  Hope this weather holds!

There are two rows of ejector pins missing on the repro grilles.  I guess that I'm making it too complicated though.  Here are the same areas on repro versus original - differences are easy to spot:

I'm not sure about RS grilles.  Repro standard grilles do have ejector pins, but a lot fewer & different locations.  Repro pins are also well adjusted - really flush with the mold cavity - harder to spot.

I've tried to post this subject twice, but it didn't appear to show up on the discussion board.  I apologize if it's redundant or if it has been discussed before.  I was looking through some of my old parts stash over the weekend & noticed that the original grilles all had round ejector pin scars behind the rectangular cut outs in the grille.  In fact, a couple of the ejector pins must have been removed from the mold in one of the grilles, because a long plastic projection was left on the part where the ejector pin should have been.  I've always looked for the "bone" colored plastic to ID original grilles - is this another way of IDing them? ( i.e - looking for the round ejector pins?).  I don't believe that I have seen the round pins in that location on repro grilles.

Kind of like beating a dead horse because it sounds like the OD hasn't been worked down, but it is important to measure across the diameter right at the stamp.

I just received the October copy of "Hemmings Muscle Machines" and noticed that my car is one of 13 nominated for muscle machine of the year.  It's the only Camaro in the hunt.  You can see it at www.hemmings.com/mmoy   .  If you like the car, I'd appreciate your vote.  Thanks,  Bruce

I don't have the book Mike (gotta get it).  At St. Louis,  when the bodies got on the Chevrolet side of the wall they were locked in sequence.  Seems like there were sometimes one or two bodies on car tops in the aisle there though - don't know  why or how how they got set aside.

At the St. Louis Assembly Plant, the body bank looked like a series of about 4 parallel lines full of  bodies on fixtured car tops.  Bodies could be moved to the end of their respective line and then transferred sideways over to the conveyor line that allowed them to go through the wall.  The bank was located between Fisher and Chevrolet, but on the Fisher side of the wall. The hole in the wall was about wide enough to fit two cars through it side by side, so you could walk through the opening while a body was coming through.  I worked on the Chevrolet side as a co-op student - looked through the access door many times, but never really worked over on the Fisher side.  So I really don't know how the Fisher/Chevrolet production was coordinated.
