Kurt, I actually posted that link a month or so back in another thread.  That is the same style setup as I am using.  Great info there.  I pretty much copied his setup  with very minor changes.

I actually saw this over on yenko.net but thought I would ask the question here.

Im not saying this car is wrong but I find it interesting the dates overlap one another.

My process is not a Caswell kit.  Wink

Im too cheap to buy a kit and I enjoy trying to figure out my own way of doing things.  With the help of the internet of course.   Grin

67 nor 68 had a hole below the ignition switch.  If this hole was for a manual choke it was installed by a previous owner.  They came with a thermostatic choke take worked off of heat from the intake to open it. 

FYI when you have questions about your car or anything in general pictures are worth a thousand words as they say.  In some cases it helps greatly..

729  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Are 71 Cutlass front parking lights the same as 69 Camaro? on: October 08, 2013, 01:53:46 PM
Only one that I have ever heard of parts being used (that were at least similar) was the 70-72 cargo light on the C-10 and the 69 RS backup light housing.  Of course the pigtail was different..

Nope.  Repo tag.

Like I said my past experiences turned the chromate finish to just a gold finish after clearing.  That was my first attempt with the conversion process.  I hope to get a few other pieces finished before this weekend.  Ill post them up once I am finished.  Since that piece I showed of the clamp I do not allow the part to soak any longer than 15 secs..  Those AC fittings look great btw.  How many times do you strike your parts in the zinc bath?
732  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: First attempt at Zinc Plating on: October 08, 2013, 07:17:43 AM
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,
Steve

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.
733  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: First attempt at Zinc Plating on: October 05, 2013, 12:27:57 PM
And the chromate conversion.




George, thanks for the tips.  I'm really starting to enjoy this.
734  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: First attempt at Zinc Plating on: October 04, 2013, 07:01:12 AM
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.
