691  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What paint is used to best replicate the correct finish on 1967 leaf springs? on: October 24, 2012, 05:02:40 PM
 Daniel sent me a pic. I see what he means about blue hues.
I understand your reasons for not posting. No worries though because I know most people don't know how to adjust their camera's white balance, if possible at all these days with the small ones, so the hues may be off. Plus there's also the flash reflections changing surface brightness. Also most people don't adjust their monitors gamma and color balances either which will surely skew colors.
 I use a web picture for reference only and realize most web colors have limited color accuracy compared to the source.

  Thanks again, Daniel,

Mike

 Rustoleum smoked gray is very close to the correct finish for a 67 mono spring.

   Got 'ya....So you offered 40K for the trim tag or the stripped body?

 If we only knew then what they would be worth now....

696  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How much value would I add if on: October 21, 2012, 06:12:26 PM
 I wouldn't worry about if the value went up or not unless you are planning on selling it later. Just do it (or don't do it) for yourself and have fun with the car.

I've offered 40,000 for my original 67 l78 camaro conv. Trim tag that's attached to the stripped car that sat in a field for years. I have the original motor.

Not sure what you are saying here.....you were offered or you offered 40K for a a 67 L78 car?

Just curious,
Mike

 I thought Fisher sprayed the trunk during the paint shop phase before going to Chevy.  Huh

699  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Glass dates on: October 17, 2012, 06:14:50 PM
 I recently looked at the glass dates on my 67 NOR 5B car that has the original doors and quater glass and found the following:
L-QTR- April 67
R-QTR - Jan 67

L-Door - April 67
R-Door April 67

L-Vent - Dec 66
R-Vent - June 67 (this I did replace back in the early 80's)

700  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Strightening and polishing stainless trim a Primer on: October 14, 2012, 06:07:10 PM
 I had an old timer restore my SS trim around the rear conv. trunk lip back in the 80's. Metal restoration was his life long business. My trim had the same dings as yours and his methods for removing them were the pretty much the same. When I got them back, and if I didn't know better, I could swear there were store bought new.

701  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: what grade is this bolt? never seen one like this on: October 14, 2012, 05:58:49 PM
 Looks 5 to me. I see KSFC (a current bolt mfg) with a line on each side.

Mike
702  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: what grade is this bolt? never seen one like this on: October 14, 2012, 04:33:07 PM
Looks like a grade 5 (it was 3 lines)

What material did the factory use being the doors/trunk close normally?   Huh

 Perfect timing with this thread. I was going to reach out too to CRG about this very subject and was wondering about how latex would work. I have the repo strips frmo the 80's and they are much harder rubber and I need to slam (trunk & doors) to get anything to close.
I'll try the latex now that I removed the repos during this recent restoration.

Thanks for the input.

 I'd certainly would want to see the VIN pad on the block and being the heads are off, a close up of the deck surface.
Did you guys notice the massive rip at the rear tunnel? The car must have thrown the drive shaft in its day.
Maybe the owner put in the mono rear for racing purposes. I know of a few who have done that to get a better wind up of the suspension.
Looks like a solid body though for its age.
