The four blade fans are not dated. The first picture looks like those I have from 67 Camaros I have parted. The second as noted is slightly different (rivets & contour) and does not look like what I am familiar with seeing on Camaros.

Yes first one is correct, if I posted a pic of the one in the second then I screwed up!

Hi everyone; Thanks for fan info.

Mike, maybe my misread on the fan pictures... the one on P.23 is a small picture so it was kind of hard to distinguish. Appreciate your inputs a lot...

Couple new questions:

1) Anybody know of someplace that can do a good jod straightening out mangled stainless moldings? (pic below) Tom, I saw an earlier post ( https://camaropacecars.com/eve/...733/m/871107695/p/30 ) where you recommended Brightworks in MA? I am contacting them, but still hoping for someplace closer to home...

2) On pg.13 of Sapp's original thread there is a picture of stamping from a convertible rear window. Is this pretty standard, or do these vary (obviously dates will differ). ( https://camaropacecars.com/eve/...733/m/337108082/p/13 ).

I spoke to Al Knoch Interiors yesterday, asked for samples of their carpet & edge banding. Also found on their website they offer a date stamp option for convertible window. Asked if they could also send pictures of this too, hoping for response late next week... (see: http://www.parts123.com/parts1...5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000155b )

That piece is junk... find another used one to polish. I have never had one peep of complaint by Brightworks... I'd never go anywhere else.. although I must mention that he polishes the trim to what resembles chrome.. it will match your brand new chromed header and vent window frames perfectly.. this is not technically correct as GM stainless was anodized with some process or other that more professional and vastly more expensive shops can do.. I prefer super shiney Wink

Mike Rossi has gone to Knoch many times for all kinds of reasons.. mostly to get them to make things even more accurately than they already do. I think Mike said the date stamp is awesome but for later in the year? I'll email Mike and ask him to repaond to this thread for details

Guys...

I am not here much as you know...sorry! My contact at Knoch is no longer there. I attempted to make contact with them a few weeks ago (they have my early '67 heel pad sample) they have not contacted me. I need to go out there and speak with Al directly. The window stamp is very close for the late cars such as the IPC and will probably suffice for most everyone's needs if you can get them to make one in the correct 32 ounce material...they push the 38. Things are a bit busy right now in my personal life...so no promises there. But I do need to go track down my heel pad/carpet!!! My best point of contact for now is email...txrsss@msn.com.

Mike

Overall: We liked the ACC KVD but thought the grain was a little light... for TrimParts we liked the one in the middle; but unfortunately I don't have their color names... also the grain was heavier than desired. So where does that leave us??? Not sure... have a few more ideas to explore & will post another update depennding on what pans out...


TIME FOR A BRIEF UPDATE... We are STILL struggling with final interior selections. I had obtained still more samples from another supplier-- some of which we felt looked more correct in some respects but less so in others. Last Monday (9/9) John, my restoration guy, spoke to Al Knoch Interiors and they discussed our dilemma. They were going to send us an assortment of blue carpet & vinyl samples to peruse... which I'm anxiously looking forward to seeing!!! stay tuned... hoping we get to the bottom of this pretty soon!!

Here's a montage of what we've been through so far... Looking forward to seeing the additional samples from Knoch...

Quick little intermission while Charley does research.. I bought the stencil for the pinstripe that Charley figured out.. I had to make a much needed repair the my triple blue driver.. The stencil is the cats meow... My pinstriper loved it and even pointed out that it comes out TOO GOOD. Thanks Charley.

P.S The size and spacing is absolutely correct

Tom, your car looks great.

Going up to the color and carpet samples, just can't understand why nobody can get the carpet in the correct stitching pattern. That is a great display of how the original carpet had a "rows of corn" straight pattern with all the loops the same size. All the repros have the "scrambled brains" random non- pattern multi sized loops.

Great photos of both subjects.

I heard that they don't even have the machinery any longer that makes the correct weave . I think that option is off the table sadly

Ahhh- Progress- is wonderful (even if baby steps)...

Delivery from UPS today... with the windshield molding I ended up sending to Tom's guy Steve at Brightworks Restoration ( http://brightworksrestoration.com/ ). Gave up on Ebaying for used original (none to be found, although LOTS of repops). Sent Steve the picture above-- He thought it was nothing he couldn't take care of, & said he'd seen a lot worse! Really nice guy... The repaired & refinished piece looks phenomenal, & guaranteed to fit. ((THANKS TOM!!)(P.S. Glad the stripe stencil worked for you too... couldn't be happier with how mine turned out!)

Picture below overlays the repaired molding with the original "before" picture so you can see the difference. Very nice work!!!

A minor setback with the interior samples. We checked with Knoch this week and apparently the person who was handling our sample request is gone, so had to start over.

I did get a sample of the window stamp couple weeks ago, they said it is correct for Corvettes, but it looks nothing like Mike Rossi's picture at https://camaropacecars.com/eve/...733/m/337108082/p/13 . Mike visited Knoch's and he Emailed me what to ask them for (THANKS MIKE!!)... now I'm waiting for word as to whether they can support it.

That trim piece in your hand is the same piece in the picture??? That is unbelievable! That is a miracle. Awesome work!! Was it pricy though to get it fixed?
