631  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Order status "Echoes Of Norwood" on: June 16, 2013, 07:09:46 PM
 I received this book for Fathers Day today and must say it is very intersting reading. Not just about the "F" body but the history of the Norwood plant through the decades.
So now it's clear why the trim tag was painted white by the Chevy workers and why the practice was discontinued after 67. But the intersting thing is stepping back and looking at the whole picture as to what else was going on at that time to understand the trim tag spraying was just a small part of a larger technology vs. blue collar picture. I found the Application 35 interesting also and how a car can have an engine installed past the body tag date. Audit and demerit system, etc.....
  This is great reading!

Hi Steve,

  Thank you for the update. In my wilder and younger biker days, I was involved with club shirt graphic changes and fresh designs plus ordering so I understand the time and efforts involved.  It's not easy! I appreciate what you, your wife and the behind the scenes efforts of others to get these approved are doing.
My compliments to you all!

Regards,
Mike

Hi Bob,

  The nut looks to have the same plating as the rubber compression disk, zinc.
From past zinc vs. cad plating questions in CRG on various fastener finishes topics, John Z stated cad plating wasn't used often and one of the concerns were health hazards.

 I have a pair of NOS shocks in my shed collecting dust and it has the hardware still attached.
These have never been mounted.
The P/N is 3192831 and are "TM" shocks dated 296-67
The nut looks like the one Ed posted and looks to be zinc plated.
Hope these pictures help.

When is a good time to order these?  If I order now, will they arrive in 4 to 6 weeks?  Can specific ordering instructions be provided?

 I don't think anyone who already ordered got theirs yet or even if the initial first batch of orders were sent into the vendor.  Huh

 Interesting, it has a white painted trim tag.
Nothing like looking at something in original condition.

 I'll second what Chick stated about gray. Many on the LOS car I have were preserved in grime and they show a dark gray finish when wiped clean.
I used dark gray phosphate for the 67 I am re-restoring  and they match the unrestored clips in appearance.

My unrestored 67 4B LOS fuel and brake clips are all phosphate. On my restored 67 5B NOR they were phosphate as well.
I haven't seen a red clip on an original 67 Camaro yet.

The ACC on the front tag bracket was on later production.

What is considered later production?

There were many variations - applying the stripes to a spinning driveshaft wasn't a "precision" operation.

 The shafts were rotating when stripes applied?

 I've heard the drivers side gas tank top was another area to look at.

643  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 front door curve - how to on: May 20, 2013, 01:55:14 PM
 I'm getting ready to install a new door skin on a 67. I have the correct tools for it but this will be a first time I'll be doing a Camaro door which has the inward curved edge at the front top. Anyone with experience have any pointers to ensure the edge folds nicely around the inward curve? I usually fold only a couple of 16ths per pass with a hammer and dolly to ease the folded edge into shape but the curve has me concerned on how to best approach it.

Thank you in advance,
Mike

 I assume there were more than one addressographs running at any time to account for some with and some without mistamps?

Mike
645  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67-68-69 Original GM Camaro DOORS on: May 18, 2013, 07:59:13 PM
 Here is something else to look for....
The door skin front section that folds over the door edge...does that have the extended square flange in the center like an original door?
Replacement skins I have seen do not have that so I can only assume a repro door doesn't have it either.
