Restoration / Bumper Finish
« on: June 23, 2014, 12:55:52 AM »
Looking for coating suggestions for the back side of a bumper. Recrome is not part of the plan right now - really just looking to stop any further damage. Driver car. Outside finish is pretty good (not perfect) - but matches all the other 47 year old chrome. Thanks

Restoration / Fuel Line - '67 L30 w/Q-Jet
« on: June 16, 2014, 01:38:14 AM »
So while replacing the fuel lines on my '67 L30 - I apparenty didn't pay close attention to the diameter of the fuel line  from the tank to the pump (this is what I get for working on the car at 1:00 a.m.), ordered and installed a 3/8" line only to discover today when comparing it to the line from the pump to the carb - that the originals are  both 5/16". So I now have 3/8 into the pump and 5/16 out into the the carb - will this cause problems? Pump is stock. Carb is stock Q-Jet for L30/275. Stupid mistake that I'm going to correct - but will this cause problems in the short run to the the pump, carb, etc? Thanks - Chris

Still crappy here in NH. 41 this a.m. w/rain (snow I hear up north) 1st decent size flea market scheduled for today - didn't bother to go as most booths are outside.
At this rate the '67's not going to hit the road until the 4th of July!.

Restoration / Re: Treating inside of rocker rails & the snow is gone!

Thanks for all the comments. I think I'll start by cleaning out all the crud. Currently assessing the other side which has at least as much rot and maybe a little more.
Thanks again.
p.s. - (-vellu) Looks like old car rust and dirt in Finland is the same as here in the states!

Restoration / Treating inside of rocker rails & the snow is gone!
« on: April 11, 2014, 02:38:44 AM »
Ok. So while cleaning up the area in the lower-forward wheel wheels (rust around one of those little plastic plugs) - I got to thinking, has anyone addressed getting some rust preventative down inside the length of the rocker rails? How? What did you use?  I can see down in there a little and it doesn't look too bad - but some surface rust for sure. Doesn't seem to be any way to get the scale and grit  (and I think a few seed shells from the varmits) out of their either.

p.s.  - just marked it on the calendar, April 10th .....last of the snow melted here today in southern NH.  However, the big lake further north - Winnepesaukee  - is still covered w/ice. I envy all the talk of the shows down South as I'm still garage bound!

Hi Mike. I remembered you from some postings last summer when I picked up the car and you mentioned they were born close together. My trim tag corner code is D671 and the production run # is  LOS 8461.  So very close.  I've been picking thru the car off/on all winter  - and will be sure to stay in contact as these cars I'm sure have a lot in common.

Here's a '67 for the list. Just pulled the tank last weekend on my '67 LOS 11A car. Code is 42  9D which doesn't seem quite right given the number 9. Could it be upside down and should be a 6?. Referencing some other posts -  the other 11A car listed  (40 6N) I believe is very close in production to mine - so go figure?

Originality / 327 L30 Intake Manifold date
« on: March 10, 2014, 01:18:03 PM »
Q for the group:  Would a casting date of "I86" (Sept) on the intake manifold of a '67 11A LOS  L30 build be too far out of range?
Looking to determine if I have a transplant.

Nothing too remarkable here - but the VIN is listed for the Z shifter so maybe a match out there somewhere. CT Craigslist.

The Secret Service needs to read this as its a clear case of of counterfeiting.

« on: February 26, 2014, 06:07:45 PM »
Thanks Bob - I think you are spot on with that. I tried orienting the brackets a few different ways - always the same result. I think going with the '68  multi spring version is the answer - for now (might go back to the singles at some point - and I'll have the right hose :))
Thanks again - Chris

Check the CRG site under research topics for the full report on L30/M20's.
Very informative to include some production estimates that are about as accurate as you will find. Not many made and far fewer left that are complete (motor-trans-rear). If your car is a true L30/M20 - keep it together and maybe we can bring some posting competition to the forum vs. all the boys with '69's and Z's!!!!!!! :)
