 Thank you, John, for the insight of these models. Even with a steel and plywood base, these came in almost the weight of 2 Camaros. That's some dense clay!  Shocked

OK...I have to ask what may sound like a stupid question about the clay mockups.
I assume there was some sort of platform base under all that clay and not that the mockup was solid clay?

 Both of my cars have the flat bottom SS grill emblem. It clearly sounds like Chevy just removed the lower 350 from the SS 350 mold.
 Scratch another one off the ponder list :-)

Thanks!

67 and early 68 did NOT have the disc brake pedal pad.  That started in the early part of the calendar year of 68 (cant remember the exact month and day). Wink
That is GREAT to know! One less thing to ponder about on my list.
Any thoughts on the grill emblem  SS396 vs. just SS for a 396 67?

Thanks,
Mike

 Did the number 2 have that curve at the base and the letter I looks crooked?
The broach marks look almost hand made.

Nice car however!

 Only minor things that caught my attention were:
1-The rear spring perch bolts are aftermarket judging from the exposed thread length. Originals were flush with the end of the nut.
2- The EE paint code didn't get lower rocker blackouts (looks like this has it?)
3- I have never seen an 67 SS 396 Camaro with the front grill emblem that had 396 in it. It was only SS. My opinion is it was more cost effect for Chevy to use the existing SS 350 emblem mold and omit the 350 from the mold and just have it show SS. Almost all aftermarket repros, except one accurate one I have seen, shows SS 396. Both my 67's L35 only have SS on the front grill emblem.
4- Missing GM Mark of Excellence tag on the door side.
5- Where is the antenna base?
6- Wrong disc brake calipers? Looks like '69
7- Trunk lid bolts have no paint on them when they should
8- Do the wheel caps only show Chevrolet Motor Division? Should have Disc Brakes also in the wording

One area I still question on restored 67's is the disc brake options. Both my cars have disc brakes and neither have the disc brake insert in the pedal even with the Z23 option. I have only seen this on restores.

Nice car otherwise even if it was changed from the base 325HP to a 375.

I"ve had no issues with Metro.
I agree and it is very soft. Plus Metro has the end reinforcement in the door rubber. I'm not sure if it is metal or a very hard plastic, but you can see and feel a reinforcement plate molded into the end.

Hi Hawk,

  I thought the manifold bracket used rounded edges.
Here is a link I posted about the one on my 67 04B LOS that shows both brackets. No replies received and I know the topic was beaten to death. Per John Z. NOR did start to use them starting '68, but being LOS did a few things different especially when it came to body drop, I wonder if they began using them earlier.

 I checked the 04B LOS and I can not find any signs of a painted number.

Did the 5460346 wt  use the check valve on each outlet under brass seats?
Only the output to the rear drums was the check valve used.

 I can take a look at the original `67 LOS. Where is the stamp located on the motor?

I used Apple Hydraulics to re-sleeve my master cylinder.  Pics are in the master cylinder cover thread. Very nice work.

-Mark.
That's the place that did mine too. It's local so it was just a short car ride. He does brass or SS sleeves. I opted for brass.

when you get that far, use a steering wheel puller, Danny..  rather than the 'jack whack'..  Smiley

Oh yes....I agree...use a puller! The wheel may be brittle by now and I would not want to risk any stress cracks developing due to hitting it.
The cap should pry off. The rubber holding it may be hard so it may take some effort to free it.

Companies do sell zddp additives, although I haven't used them myself.  Eastwood and even a company called 'zddplus'..

http://zddplus.com/

Some of my friends use zddplus and no complaints about cam wear so far.
These can be bought in bulk on eBay at some very good deals.
