Interior & dash: We were trying to achieve a "factory" like look with the overspray over gray base... Not sure it will make much difference once everything is upholstered, but that's what I wanted...

And finally (last picture)-- Gauge cluster (note poor lighting). Original cluster was broken in disassembly so this is a repro. Very happy with the finished look with the chrome & blackouts, etc...

this concludes today's photo montage...

And now we move on into the next phases, drivetrain & reassembly.

John found me a February-dated 4-speed transmision in northern Arizona a couple months ago, so I think we are in good shape there. The tough part will be finding an engine. Ideally I want to be period-correct with dates corresponding to the build... we will have to see what we can find... been looking for awhile already...

THANK YOU to those folks who have helped out already with the engine info... reluctant to name names & details; but you know who you are!

OK-- I'm back again already. Going over my pictures from yesterday-- Nearly had a heart attach, when I noticed spatter paint in the trunk hinge area that looked like it was overdone. Wondering if we need to try to clean this up???????

I poured through the website looking for other pictures of trunk hinges, and came up with several examples that basically show inconsistency: some have the hinges body color, while some others have trunk spatter paint covering most of the hinges.

Below is shot of my trunk & hinges... also following that are several images I picked up from other pages on the site (hope nobody takes offense)... Based on these I'm inclined to think my hinges are probably OK, or if anything need only minor cleanup. FEEDBACK???

Here's one from L181A L35 (Sapp's pg 19) that shows the hinges pretty clean...

This one from Tom (also Sapp's pg 19) looks like one side is body color and the other side has trunk spatter:

And this one (also from Tom-- Sapp's pg 38) looks pretty close to what I've got.

There are a couple more examples I found but they don't show anything not already exemplified by the 3 borrowed shots above.

So I'm wondering about cleaning up the hinges... Based on the inconsistency I'm inclined to leave well enough alone????

To quote from Phil Borris' article in Muscle Car Review this month...

Participant in the panel discussion asks original GM alumni " How far does the trunk overspray go up the back panel of a 1969 Norwood Built Camaro to be factory correct?"

A panel member replied" Well, it depends on how long the guys arms were who was spraying the paint. If he had longer arms, then the paint went higher on the panel!"

I love it roll

My suggestion would be to make sure the color and texture match what was used and then do what you think is best checkered flag

And Charley...you gotta get Phils book.. you'll LOVE it

The car with the red trunk looks like it got both guys... maybe it was shift change!

Most happy to help with the paint info. I have gotten such an unbelieveable wealth of insights from this group that I'm happy to be able to contribute something worthwhile!
