I blasted some sheet metal screws and took pictures today. The screw ( 9420415 ) Dave69x33 posted I found 3 variations of it. D, RBW,& Blank. The smaller sheet metal screws I may not be 100% correct on the diameter.

Marty, I can not figure out where the "LF" bolt came from in reply #46. It looks like a battery hold down bolt but it is 3/8" not typical 5/16". One of my front fenders was replaced at some point, so maybe this 3/8" bolt got replaced at that time. I blasted some more fasteners today and will post those pictures for your collection.
I like the charts you made up, great information.
George.

I see the truck has a lift gate on it. And looks like body is sitting on a roll cart. Did you balance it on the lift gate while your wife operated the gate?

I ordered a new complete console from Heartbeat because the original one has many stripped out screw holes and a cracked door. I haven't received it yet so I can't compare them. Did I make a mistake if I am tiring to keep the car original in appearance? I have the front bracket. It is an early 69 if that matters.

Steve & Mark X22, I finally found the missing Air shield screw I was looking for. I thru it in with my front end sheet metal bolts. Any way I am sure this is it because when I took it out I remembered it was ground on one side like it hit the pavement or something. I am now questioning if the other holes I measured as .250" were filled in slightly from powder coating. I hate to put a 5/16" tap into it and open it up more but I have to find out what size bolt goes in there.I will let you know.

Marty, Glad to help out. I have learned sooo much here and just want to give back a little. I would hope some day to see a published judging rules to use as a guide line.
The blaster we use is a Eastwood bench top. Kind of small but you can roll it into the corner when not needed. I like "Aloxglass" from Grainger, aluminum oxide glass bead mix.Also uses our shop vac for dust control. Back to the bolts.
I wanted to take pictures of the fasteners before I blasted them for my records. These were all soaked in Evaporust overnight. The picture of the nuts with captured washers show allmost 2 different finishes but that might be from the Evaporust. I found 3 serrated washer bolts 2 I believe were on the horn brackets. The blaster bolt is from below the cross member and held the 396 AC only Air shield on. I remember thinking it got ground on the pavement or something. That picture is for BlackOut Steve. More to come.

I have been glass beading some of my 1969 front end bolts before phosphate, here are some pictures & quantity found. Built Nov. 68.
I have many more to clean and will photo those also.

Mark x22, you are correct 5/16" bolts. I have been looking at too many metrics or just can't see like I used to. Anyway I pulled out my subframe and shield to bolt it up.
The 2 bolts that go directly into the cross member are 5/16 with a .280" hole. But the other 4  holes only measure .250" so I don't know what screws go in there.The holes are not stripped, a 1/4" fastener is too small.

282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Right rear floor rust on: January 16, 2012, 06:51:11 PM
I just got my 69 coupe blasted and sent to the body shop. The right rear floor area is rusted really bad. I ordered what I was told was the best USA made floor repair section. After comparing to the original it is not even close. The original reinforcement ribs are deeper and sharper stampings. Fisher body had really big press's.
This is a long shot but I wanted to ask if anybody might have or might know of a right rear section out of the floor. I have called allot of parts places and haven't come up with one yet. It just really bugs me to have to replace one section with something that doesn't match. I could probably make a left side work if someone had that.

Steve & z10kl, I can't seem to find the screws I took out of my subframe, I will find them & take pictures. I checked and all my holes are 3/8" X 16. If i remember they were same as front fender bolts,tapered end, with a recess in the center of the bolt head. I wish I took a picture of them before I pulled them, but I didn't know I was missing the air shield. Here is a very ugly picture of the subframe before disassembling. I pointed out the screws & holes.

Steve: I have to tell you I was amazed & entertained for many hours over the Christmas holiday at what you have posted on the Australian muscle car forum. What you have been able to do in what appears as a small moderately equipted garage is amazing and shows you are very talented. Anybody that likes Camaro builds needs to check the link under his name.

JohnZ you never seize to amaze me with your knowledge & memory. There it is noted on page 453. I heard your pretty involved in NCRS, do you know if the Corvette guys are using the GM restoration paint, or how they feel about it?
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: GM Heritage Center Documentation on: January 08, 2012, 09:52:35 AM
Many years ago we used GM restoration paint in Gal. cans for Corvette restorations. Currant # 1050104 available from dealer or other suppliers. I don't know if it still matches the paint from 30 years ago.
Maybe someone has recently used it and can give feed back.
