Rockers are galvanized, so are the door jamb supports.
Yes, -vellu is correct; I wasn't arguing, just acknowledging that I had not previously been aware of that. One of the great things about this hobby, always learning new facts.

Tubes are galvanized
Never seen that before! Only parts I thought were gal on these cars were the headliner attachment strips, floorpan plugs and the wiring loom cover/carpet support at the door openings.

Always hard to entrust something so cared about to someone else, but sure he will do a terrific job and you'll be back behind the wheel quicker than if you tried to do it all yourself!

Danny, glad to see you back here, and I wish you well on the road to recovery and eventually getting back into a Camaro!

You could give the insides of the rockers a hit with a quality rust-prevention product, like Dynax S50 or 3M Rust Fighter; they come in a pressure pack and the nozzle is on a long wand so you can reach all those nooks and crannies. The nozzle has a multi-directional spray pattern to get better coverage in tight areas, like this:

Very nice.

What always stands out to me whenever I see a CHP Certification, is the statement:
"According to our data base and historical Chevrolet records, this car is an original <insert model> "
I guess only Jerry can confirm, and would not do that for obvious reasons, but since the only known GM records amount to the shipper info (not yet available via the NCRS), and unless the car has previously been inspected and certified by him (in which case, why re-appraise it?), what does the statement really mean?

I can tell you we have moved the target roll out date to May 1st.
Thanks Roy - will be waiting in anticipation like a kid on Christmas Eve!

Read elsewhere that this service has been delayed from mid-April until July - can anyone involved with NCRS confirm?

Great, thanks again as always John! Now I'll have to try and decipher the crayon markings.

Kurt, what's your opinion on the engine stamp?
VIN: 124379L528742
Paul
Yes, I'd like to hear Kurt's opinion on that one; the VIN is the closest I've yet seen to my own LA car's.

Interesting! I was cleaning up a Flint CE block recently and noticed yellow grease pencil marks on one side (which I have left undisturbed); Would the same process as JohnZ described have applied equally to a CE assembly as a production engine?

Tim,
Are those dried paint runs at the lowest points I see?
Mike
Mike, those dark areas are just local wet spots; it had been raining before I took the tank outside to take the picture, and the bottom edge got damp when I put it down to turn over. There is a couple of minor paint runs, but they don't show up in the picture.
164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Date Stamping on: March 28, 2014, 03:22:16 AM
Door panels have ink date stamps on the inside of the panels
Here's an example, this one from an August of 1969 car:

I parted out an 01B of 1969 Los Angeles car late last year and the underside of the gas tank is painted black; will take and post some pictures tomorrow.
Here's a picture of that tank, you can see where there is no paint where the tank straps were. This is not undercoating. The tank was original to the car:
