Reminded me of the "double header" cutaway show car when I first saw the picture!

If that is the same car I'm thinking of (ebay), the spare wheel in the trunk has taken a big hit too - the wheel rim is visibly bent. Just don't understand how people include pictures like this in a sales ad, but then again, are they unaware, or just (silently) disclosing issues?

Danny, words aren't easy at a time like this, but let me say my thoughts are with you and I wish you all the best for the days ahead.

That image is from my photobucket album. I created the jpg image by taking a screen grab of the relevant page of the PDF version of the AIM, and then pasting it into a photo editing program and saving as a jpg file. You can download the PDF version of the entire AIM here:

Thanks Kurt.

Spectra tanks are Ni Terne coated.
What's the process for that Scott? I take it that it involves at least a Nickel coating.

I'd say we have a winner......(and maybe back as far as the first reply)

Rob, I'll leave the experts to answer for sure, but I recall being told that the straps prevented body flex under heavy torque from literally popping the glass out of the body.
I guess that a build-up of air pressure at speed (assuming at least the driver's window was down) could also tend to blow the rear window out, as well as the body flexing due to torque?

Bob, I have been involved with hot-dip galvanizing of structural steel sections, but never thin-section base metal such as a fuel tank. Nor can I recall the % make-up of material used. Therefore, can't comment with any direct knowledge, but my thoughts are:
- the process may distort the shape of the tank.
- the existing holes in the tank (such as filler neck and sender hole) while large diameter, may not be best positioned to allow fast draining of the zinc on removal from the tank.
- the finish may not be suitable to you from a visual point of view, being an industrial coating as opposed to an architectural finish.
Having said that, I believe the reproduction tanks (such as those made by Spectra) have a gal finish, but not sure of the process used; it may be that they are produced from a cold-galvanized material.....
Perhaps best to contact a local company that does this process and discuss?

Yup, just checked, no stamp around the heater box, just on top of the cowl. 05a (really june sometime) L5303xxx
Thanks for checking Kevin - mine's an 04A build. Wonder if it was a widespread omission over several months, or just occasional Huh
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Educate Me on: February 22, 2014, 04:54:24 PM
I dont think it been modified.  The Camaro panel is recessed where the louvers are and the panel I have is flat.  If you look on either side of the louver ends it has a step in the panel (hard to see in the pic).  Ive tried to find pics of Omega & Ventura panels but they all seem to be the same as a Nova.   Huh
Certainly is a head scratcher. When it was installed on the '67, assume there was a step between the cowl vent panel and the recessed sections of the hood?

Have a feeling that one is going to go for big $$.....
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Educate Me on: February 22, 2014, 01:25:37 AM
That Chevelle panel is nothing like the one pictured at the beginning of this thread (see comparison below). To me, it genuinely looks like a 67-69 Camaro panel that has been modified - but who'd go to all that trouble, unless it was some car show special, or a GM prototype......

Why the request?
Reason for request is that I have a non-A/C car with all original sheetmetal, and so far can find no sign whatsoever of a hidden partial stamped near the blower motor hole. The upper cowl hidden partial is present, and it's a nice deep stamping. I recalled reading somewhere a while ago that someone else with a Van Nuys car was also unable to find the second hidden partial, so wondered if any other examples of this were out there. Would appreciate it if you could give an update once you get a chance to check your car.
