Restoration / Re: are cowl and trim tags painted
« on: April 16, 2013, 12:58:21 AM »

  we are all just people after all and we need to bear in mind that to be a true patroit of a cause,one needs to be constructive not destructive.i would never have reserectied this topic if i didn`t have something in it i valued and wanted to share.just to show that something so trival can be the one special thing that rings true to the heart. Hurts to have it blasted when you try to share what made it important to you in the first place .this 6 page monster i see here, it demonizes both , as in arguing with a fool , but i see no fools here.i care not what cred you think you have .
i want to judge not ,least ye be judged. only hope that what is shared here is productive human endevor...thanks.... i end my particpation on this topic

  :-[  well the point is it was done.can still be found like that.the story can live on .which version who cares? i have never seen one that wasn`t painted .page 101 picture is at body drop....
"since my firewall is striped from paint. are the tags painted and if so,when do they get painted "
that was the point of the thread .(when do) in a restoration topic is not when did!!whenever and whatever color you want mr. owner / no attention to talking heads going off topic,unless you need the entertainment.

 Timing  of my 67 01A Norwood car . It was production related. And to see it , however because the workers resisted the new computer generated  "body broadcast" print out so the trim tag containing the option content was sprayed white to make it easier to see major option content at a glance. The 2 sheets in the photo , hang in the windshied (one body and one chassis.) That to me would be understandable . I worked in some of those factories in the 70`s and they pushed real hard on us grunts .Not having a special model such as a pace car ,Z/28,SS,RS,Lotta HP, or the like (my no options car.)  Seems silly to have wiped off something that otherwise dated it (to someone who was there) and a darn shame is all. I was just trying to share @ how trim tag paint story I had to offer to this thread . Echos of Norwood page 101, picture and caption.Photo is from General Motors Media Archives. Geessss throw a dog a bone for crying out loud!

  I know this is an old topic/posts. I wanted to post so as to share,that others not make same mistake I did..(in 1979). I stripped a ugly white trim tag on my then just purchased 01A 1967 Norwood built Camaro . It was yellowed and dirty so thought I was doing good . Just found in festivals-norwood book , photo and story of how and why it was like that . Dang shame on me!

  I could post a pic , but it just looks like every other one now. Wish I knew then what I know now .....phil

Restoration / Re: Interior Paint Codes - 1967 Yellow "707" interior
« on: April 11, 2013, 01:19:24 PM »

  Hope that helps Bryan...or anyone going down the yellow interior road. On a related  note , in my searching found how rare this interior color is and totally a love it or replace it situation. Maybe hundreds built in 1967 ,however few remain . One is Rick Georges  (from Rick`s 1st Gen). I made contact with him recently , "still has and loving it" . He told me when he restored his he went the dye route . Seemed excited to hear about any  N.O.S. yellow materials . Still some other yellow interior parts I still need are that rubbery flexable trim that goes next to the  back glass at the top and down the sides . It crumbled when I touched it upon disassembly . Anyone know the description/part number for these three pieces . Again any help appreciated.
Congrats again also Bryan . That's a rare one indeed ! IMHO
