 Interesting! I didn't think the spray guns went down that far in front of the bulkhead but seeing your picture it looks like it did.

  Not all humans see color the same way due to their brain's color perception characteristics and that is due in part to the number and efficiency of rods and cones in ones eyes. When I give lectures I touch on this very topic of color perception. And as Sauron eluded to, most people don't have their computer monitor's gamma and color space set correctly, if at all. I'm an astro photographer and I deal a lot with color space and proper balance is very important for correct visual presentation and I have seen how hue interpretation can differ widely between people and displayed on monitors so trying to analyze very subtle color hue level changes on a basic PC monitor can be difficult. I use color calibration on my monitor once a month for my main monitor I use for image processing and no calibration on what I call a ‘typical user’ monitor when adjusting astro images and there is definitely a visual difference. I do this so there is a compromise in balance for web presentation.

 That's good to know, John. I have a few gallons of phosphate solution and it's no problem to phosphate those parts.


Thanks,

Hi Gary,
  Did you prime first? I was thinking to prime for the adhesion benefits and then dip.

Thanks,
Mike

  I'm curions how the paint was applied. Spray can or a spray gun with a small fan setting.  Huh

 I'm wondering if I can duplicate that finishing effect using a can of GM reconditioning black (I still have a few gallons) and a wire hanger. Where the puddles stick, they stick.

And nothing on my original 67 (084 date) booster aside from the white broadcast tag attached to the booster check valve.
I only mention it because it looks like no paint dabs consistent across the years. I have only seen them on restored cars.

I use Condon and Skelly for the past 25 years.
No complaints here. I never had a claim though but the cost is under $200 a year.
Where I live you can have an uninsured car as long as it was off the public street.

So if the firewall blackout is up that high then it is safe to assume there will be black over-spray in the cowl where the wiper motor mechanics are?

I got curious because I remembered seeing several white tags in my 68 database, so I went back and checked, and sure enough, I have several early 68 Norwood tags that are painited white. A few are even black, but with white underneath! Here are two examples. The top on is white and the bottom one is white under the black.

Hi Ed,
  Interesting find for '68! As for the white under black tag, the one reason that comes to mind is maybe either the dealer or new owner blacked it out to eliminate the bright 'eye sore' from a free hand tag spray job. Is there black under the white if you clear paint off further? I suspect black will be there.

Check the rubber in the front spring bushing to see if it's eroded. Or it could be a broken shock but that usually shows when even bouncing the car.

 I see what you mean....day 38. Do you have a picture by chance of the engine pad? Also, check the block cast date. It should be before the engine assembly date on the pad.
