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.

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.

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. 
729  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.

733  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?

I know this is not camaro related..... but I know some of you were in the" Nam" during 1965 thru 1974. And for you younger guys, you can see what  these brave men had to endure. Vietnam Lost Films. The Beginnings ( 1964 - 1965 ) 1/6  Terry P. S. How many times have we heard of the servicemen coming home and buying a camaro...
and many never came home..   and I heard of many, and know of at least one '69 Z28 which sat in his parents carport for many years.... in the last '70's, still waiting for the return that never happened....  It was a gorgeous azure with black vinyl top car..  that was one of the first Z28's I'd ever seen with the smog still intact, and I have no idea now what happened to it..   and forgive me for this one..  but in October of '69, while I was in the USAF, I ordered a lime green roadrunner HT... and I don't know where it is now either.  Smiley

You wouldnt have been stationed in Texas by chance around the 69-73 time frame?
