 I understand that the front half sheet metal was sprayed body color at Chevy and the main body at Fisher, but in the B&W picture posted (http://www.camaronews.com/camaro-videos/first-camaro-ever-built-n100001-found-and-restored/) of the guy spraying the main body, I see what looks like a jig holding the front end sheet metal. Is that was it looked like (the jig) for the normal production front end spraying at Chevy's side of the wall?

 Thank you, Jek. I'll look at those reproductions then. I'll post an orig to repro comparison and share in CRG.

 I had a '69 Grand Prix develop a bad booster check valve that caused a hard brake symptom and a very noticeable 'hisssss' sound coming from the firewall/booster area but mainly when I applied the brakes.

  I have browsed that site in the past and it is a complete ripoff and is an example of what is wrong with eBay sellers who think they have gold.
What is the bolt size. I'll look in my pile of hundreds of original Camaro bolts and send it to you free of charge if I have it.

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Most accurate 67 door sill moulding? on: February 27, 2015, 02:56:46 PM
Hello list,

  Has anyone purchased door sill plates for a 67 recently or know of a close-to-accuracy as possible set with rivets?

Thank you in advance,
Mike

The middle and bottom picture look 67.

 I would also recommend to have the following done too if you are going to send in items for a dichromate (at least on my '67 they were) restoration:

*Booster
*M/C cover (if not too pitted) - or get an exact repro from a Corvette reproduction house
*Disc brake caliper mounting brackets
*Hold off valve mounting bracket

 Providing the pitting is not too severe, to me it adds to the cars patina to reflects its age and history even after it is related.

 I have only used brakeboosters.com They have the best work quality and know how to correctly finish a booster in the proper hues, IMO.

Interesting to see DS1 (replies # 23 & #32) picture of a 67 11D NOR that shows the square upper control arm shim bar that doesn't look like the traditional dog bone.
My 05B has that same shape bar too though the 04B LOS has the dog bone shape. I know there was some speculation as to if that was a replacement but it's looking more like two shape bars were used.

 The picture you posted, what was wrong with that 'WT'? It sounds like you have one already that has a good stamp.

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 5460346 Master Cylinder on: February 19, 2015, 10:13:23 PM
 My thinking is it was milled flat but depending on the wear of the stone (I assume it is a stone of some sort) the pattern will vary as well as to the cut area.
The LOS machined area looks more to one side compared to the NOR cylinder.
And being the master cylinder came with a paint that wore off fast, that would leave the surface exposed to moisture over the decades to pit. Cylinders in engine compartments that developed a lot of grime (worn valve covers, power steering grime and air grime) probably fared better.

 Sure looks exactly like the 05B NOR 'WT'. The LOS has what looks like a skinner W. It makes me wonder if these were machined and stamped at more than one facility to account for the changes in fonts.  The few re-stamps I have seen have the wrong letter T (the top is not narrow)
 Is the part number casting upside down?

The NOR WT characters looks like the one you posted. Where is that from?

Hi Brad,

  The 04B LOS UOIT lists a date of April 13, 1967
For the 05B NOR car the NCRS document lists the date of May 12, 1967

Here is a close up of the NOR WT. The machining is not flat so the W isn't as crisp.


Thanks,
Mike
