That would be great. Attached are what the resto companies are showing for drum vs. disc brackets. The sub-frame looks like the drum bracket is what is called for. I can't see how the disc bracket will lock into place with the supporting tab that the drum one has.

Thanks much,
Matt

Folks,

I am looking for the correct brackets to use for the union between the brake hoses at the calipers and break lines for the front disc brakes affixed to the sub-frame. I am seeing different ones for drum than disc but frequently find that the companies lump in the '67 with the '68 when they don't know exactly what '67 requires.

Thoughts?
Matt

x77... you had it right all along.  I went back and read your first post. When you said 'rocker' for some reason I was thinking RS...

All,

Courtesy of GW... Thanks very much!

Sill paint does not go into door sill. Along the rocker it stops behind the standard trim below RS trim. GW thanks very much! Matt

Thanks Mike.

Again, this is from an 11B build code Camaro out of LOS. My glove box sticker is still readable with '5 passenger' limitation, indicating likely prior to 16 Nov 66 for build date.

Front fender shows that sill paint, at least on the fender, began well above standard trim piece and solidly behind RS trim piece.

Passenger door sill shows no paint under door trim piece.

Don't know if this helps anyone... pending further info, I will likely paint on top of rocker lip going into door sill, but stop it there. May go up under the door sill trim like the '68 shown previously.

Won't be painting for a while though...

All,

Recently had my body blasted then laid a coat of the epoxy primer over it. I am ready to shoot the firewall and was wondering if there is any straight forward way of sanding it to receive the paint. Any kind of orbital or vibration sander appears impossible to use. Sanding by hand seems to run the risk of creating an uneven surface prior to paint.

Might be over thinking this. Is hand sanding sufficient? There is some peel with this primer and the primer is not forgiving. It is going to take some work.

Thanks,
Matt

I do have a 'New Camaro' brochure on the Camaro which would have come out ahead of the line. None of the artist renditions in the brochure, even the lighter ones has the blacked out rockers, however... in the text, buried deep late in the publication, the very last sentence of the last paragraph actually, states, "Also, depending on exterior color, body sill is black below side molding when Rally Sport is specified" The bow-tie and 350 fender emblem also are missing throughout the entire magazine.

I had my car blasted prior to digging down into the colors. Under my door sill plate the color is definitely the original Sierra Fawn as I had that taped off prior to blasting to keep a reference color. I did not blast the fenders yet and was able to sand down where the bumble bee stripe was and found black. I will look for the sill paint here soon.

Mine was a NOV '66 production.

In the picture above, that is a snapshot of the first Camaro commercial done, a 2 minute commercial on Youtube and the sill paint on that car is definitely not blacked out. Solid shots of the car throughout the commercial.

My suspicions are that it truly was an after thought that hit right when the cars met the dealers for the first time and then cars were then shot from then on.

Yup. I am definitely talking 67 RS.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sill Paint on: October 15, 2013, 07:06:20 AM
I can't thank you all enough. You have flushed out what I intend to do. Mine is an original RS/SS with original tranny/rear-end, but the original engine is long gone. I was able to find a correctly coded SS-350 that was sent through the same factory six weeks after the car. Both car and engine being stamped in '66.

She will be built exactly to the trim tag, however I have taken some liberties...

All suspension, brakes, steering, sway bars, etc... are new. Sound deadening throughout.

On the sill, I will have everything below the trim and wrapped up into the interior like shown in the '68 then call it a day.

Thanks again very much. I went after sill questions a while back with 'crickets' as a response. Seems like this is a tough question to definitively answer.

Only light colored cars were blacked out. It is my understanding that the shade was more of a satin finish, same as tail panel for big block 67/68 Camaros. Pretty sure they went from wheel well to wheel well, tracking with the rockers, so in effect everything below RS chrome trim was blacked out.

Thanks!

Thanks a million! This does provide me what I need. Does the trunk mat cover the two elongated humps parallel to the back seat brace or stop before that?

All,

For the satin black that went on the rockers for RS cars, light exterior paint, did the upper edge fold into the car so you actually saw the black on the near horizontal when you opened the door or did it stop at the effective bottom of the door when the door was shut?

Thanks,
