Ignition Coil Bracket Finish
« on: Today at 07:19:21 AM »
Hello Friends!

Can someone tell me what the correct finish for a '67 ignition coil bracket is? Is it bare metal or is it grey oxide? And while we're on the subject - who does show quality grey oxide plating? I'm ready to send my parts off to get them refinished and so I'm wondering if the coil bracket needs to be sent off too.

As always, Thanks a bunch!
Buzz

Originals I've observed  have a galvanized appearance. A dull clear zinc can grit u somewhat close.

 Both my '67's have the typical crystalline galvanized look. For gray phosphate finishing I would use some place local or even buy the zinc liquid and do it yourself because it is very easy to do. And it can come in handy when you discover a bolt or two that you 'forgot' to send out.

I just realized I had never consulted the component finish charts I have from Jerry M. and the Camaro Nats. Both say the coil bracket are finished in silver cadmium (which I believe mine already is.) Well. . . . egg on my face.

Although, to save this thread I still need a recommendation on a plater to get my parts grey phosphate plated. I just don't think I want to attempt to do it myself. I plan to do the hood latch and hood hinges which are sizeable pieces.

Buzz, do a search for palmetto phosphate and read some of the threads explaining how easy it is! And confused since you plan on doing large parts which needs both large container and solution. If you have a glass bead cabinet and can boil water you can do those small parts with ease.
