Not bad - in fact, not bad at all. Did you bead the chromate version ? I bet if you top coated with clear it would be dynamite. Probably last forever, too. Great job -

Regards,

Thanks!!  I guess it is sorta a bead process.  I havent tried it with these parts yet but in the past when I have cleared chromate parts it tends to wash out the rainbow coloring.  It may have been my process.  Ill try to clear this clamp and see what it looks like after.

And the chromate conversion.




George, thanks for the tips.  I'm really starting to enjoy this.

Its not too bad.  Once I get this process down if anyone wants me to do some parts for them just pm me and we can go from there.   Grin

Changed around my settings & I like this one even better..  Much cleaner & uniform.

Well I finally got around to try out my zinc plating process.  Everything seems to have gone ok for the first prelim run.  I believe once I get more parts and the process down I think these parts will come out great.  Figured I would try it out on a broken clamp.  I only worked on the outer ring portion of the clamp and nothing else.  I also think once I blast these parts they will take better.

After third dip and scrubbing.

67 neither painted them.  Then sometime between 68-9 NOR went to painting them.
652  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: maintaining doors... on: October 03, 2013, 11:16:46 AM
Both of my '67's too are silver with no paint. I believe they painted them in `69 which included the door catch as well.
I can't speak for `68 though.

I was just coming back to post that I answered my question by doing a little searching.  It also appears that it depends on where it was built also.  NOR or LOS.
653  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: maintaining doors... on: October 03, 2013, 11:03:24 AM
Now I am confused.  The assembly I took out of my 67 was silver cad.  This finish guide also shows the screws to be the same.  Was 67 different than 69? Why would they put the latch assembly into the door and the rod that goes to the handle mech (which is a bear to attach when latch is installed) to the latch assembly not be installed.  My experience it is much easier and quicker to install the handle mech, rod & latch assembly in all together.  I would have thought the production line would have done the same.?.  Also there was no paint on the screws or assembly when I took it apart.


 Middle Column is Camaro Nationals Seminar and the right column is MacNeish Book.

The inner parts of the door as far as I know are not painted.  I'm actually replating my door latch mech right now & it's silver cad..   Which I plan on making them silver zinc.  I'm probably wrong but that seems to be what I have seen over the years on regs, latches etc.

You need to locate which wire is going to which terminal on the relay on the one side and where that wire goes on the other end. 
656  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Radiator upgrade on: September 29, 2013, 08:17:23 PM
That is a 5 terminal relay.  See if the wiring is like this.

First welcome.. Grin


Best thing would be to get paperwork on the car.  Get pics of the block stampings, vin, cowl tag, trans stamping and diff stamping.  Only then can anyone give an evaluation on the car.

Is the seller in TN?
660  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DZ302 scam block? on: September 27, 2013, 02:40:01 PM
Is that paint, Dykem or a bluish light shining on the block?
