Wanted Ads / Re: 1969/70 tach dash cluster shell

Maybe he just needs it for setup so a loan might work . Just a thought
No, I'll need the shell for an indefinite period of time, as each hard-wired dash cluster I manufacture is hand-made and fitted to the actual dash cluster.  Thanks for the thought, though. 

Sean and I are in e-mail discussion stage.

All the carb to spacer gaskets I've seen are 4 hole, but spacer to aluminum intake is open plenum while spacer to cast iron intake is again 4 hole.

1971 - 1973 / Re: 1972 Alternator

Thank you for the feedback. Jeff, that is how I have my alternator detailed with the red paint over the part number in the casting. The paint was applied before the stamping of the part number from my research so I the wiped some silver back over the red and then swiped the silver back off leaving it in the stamped numbers.

I do agree with your direction on consulting with the judging team prior to inspection. I always remain behind the car during judging to respond to any questions and respectfully observe their attention to areas. Bottom line is I appreciate their feedback and make improvements on what I can verify to be correct from the judging sheet. Your right, we know our cars better than anyone else and I am not trying to fool myself that this will ever be a thoroughbred. I would like it to show well and get the feedback on any areas to improve. I need to get out to other parts of the country to get other judges feedback. So far judged by 4 different judges with varying comments. Did well in Kansas City Grand National with total of 8 points deducted. Some I expect.

1967 - 1968 / Re: 1967 GT 350 (Early 10/66) Inner Front Fender Finishing ?

Richard - just for comparison what is the date from the fender lip of that fender?  If you please :)
Sure.
Fender lip 10 13 3
Panel behind headlamp (pictured earlier) 10 14 D3 (backwards D)
Rear Fender Reinforce (pictured earlier) 10 11 D3 (backwards D)
Rear Fender Sideways Support 9 11 D2 (backwards D)
Headlight Panel Brace (pictured earlier) 10 8 2D

Although this thread started out about underside fender color and spray patterns, somewhere it took a turn into date codes found. I suppose all pertinent info but now things seem a bit jumbled.

In an effort to get back on track and since today I just pulled out all of my fenders again, let me explain how I got close to the correct under fender color. It begins with my floorpan paint.

After a color scan of my floorpan, I had my paint store mix me a quart to their closest match. It came in much darker than what was on the floor. I sprayed a patch of the paint on the underbody (floorpans) and sprayed some in a similar patch area onto the fender (see picture this post). You can see how much it was too dark. Since both test sprays were wrong to the same or similar extent of the original colors desired, I then took this fender to the paint store. I could not get my paint store to tweek it any better than what is seen in some paint daubs just to the left of the sprayed in patch. The tweaked color was then tested onto the floorpan prior to shooting the whole floor. It was IMHO, about the +95% same of each other. Summary: This original color seen on the underside of my known original fender was IMHO, very close to the original floorpan color. This may not be the "norm" but it is as close as I was able to get things given my location and willingness (or lack of willingness perhaps) of my paint stores.

Although the quart I bought is almost used up after shooting the floorpans last weekend (9/9/17), I am planning to use what I have left over from the floorpans to touch up 1.) where the rotisserie is attached and 2.) use what is left on the undersides of my fenders since I felt it was as close as the paint store could (or would) duplicate.
