Resjud, I recently was going to install an original seat divider panel I bought but found out it was for a convertible not a coupe. Below is a picture of the back side showing how it was glued on without screws along the top. The coupe panel is shorter than the convertible. They definitely reproduce both coupe & convertible divider panels. George

I wanted to rivet on the rear bumper bracket as original and bought the reproduction rivets. They did not work for me because the top of the rivet you peen over was too small in diameter, would not fill the hole after peening. I made up my own, plated them dark phosphate, and installed them with an air hammer using a long punch. Here is a drawing of the rivets for future use and a picture of them installed. My originals did not have rings on the head like reproductions do and were dark phosphate.
I did not have a picture of the original rivet peened area so I am not sure what it looked like. George

The whole assembly is phosphate.
The upper spring was semi-gloss black, I recently found out. George

Mike, nice work and good reference for future searches. George

I found & bought NOS window felts years ago and pulled them out of the tube they were in and was shocked (pissed) to find mice had eaten them and made a warm little home in the tube. So not wanting to spend big dollars again I bought what was advertized as "The finest windowfelts available". They fit nice but the ends of the molding have a sharp cut edge unlike the originals. I drilled out the center of the molding to a depth of 1/8" and peened over the end with a very small hammer. You don't have to close up the end, just round it off. They turned out pretty good and match the NOS ones. Maybe this is how others do it I just have not seen it talked about. Sorry for the out of focus pictures. George

Here's the picture. $14 at Walmart.

I have been using this crock pot for all my small parts.  I don't know if I posted the link correctly. "Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings Reply #161 on: February 02, 2012, 08:22:06 PM "
The nice thing about this is I can leave it on my bench ready to go, takes 15-20 to warm up, been using the same solution for 6 months. Handy if you only need to do a couple bolts. George

My first thought was to Tub it, Slam it, and drop a blown 502 in it and be the coolest car around. But my son insists it stay's all original.   
Dad, I think you taught him right.

Great shot of the factory PTB stamps. Although faint even when new, they do appear quite crisp and clear.
Why is the "P" a reverse stamp on the right side and upside down on the left side?  How did they do a reverse stamp? Upside down is very common. George

Ed & Janobyte, thanks for the quick reply. After reading those links Ed it looks like the original one I bought is for a convertible, the shorter repro one is for a coupe. That's what I need. Makes sense that they glued the convertible panel on. George
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Fold down seat divider panel on: December 07, 2013, 04:37:59 PM
I am putting in my rear seat divider panel and noticed the back of the original panel has glue sprayed on it like there was jute glued to it previously. If anyone has an original seat divider panel with fold down seat could you look through the trunk and see if you can see jute padding on the back? The other question is the re-pro divider panel laid over the original is about an inch shorter. Also the original has a 1/2" additional material above the seat latch. Did I get one for a convertible, is there are difference? George

Thanks everyone for the replies, that's good news they were painted because the center rod is to long for my crock pot platter. George

The fitting on the pump is 13/16". I went to Menards and bought a stubby wrench (5") worked good for $9. George
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Front spoiler support rods on: December 02, 2013, 09:40:16 PM
I installed a new front spoiler, the support rods are a gloss black and don't look correct to me. Anyone one know if they were originally a dark phosphate color? I can't seem to find a description or picture. George
