    Skip, nothing personal, but Paul Russell (the noted 300SL restorer that puts them back to factory standards) told me it was originally a very light beige, and I think he knows a helluva lot more about the subject than either you or I.
    My Strawberry Red came from his shop (he is about an hour away from me), and I could probably get him to mix up some belly pan beige if I really wanted to.  He restores to an as left the factory condition - the pics you posted from Ebay or a car with restoration inaccuracies might not be the best example of a car exactly as it left the factory, (though your shots do look beige-ish with a hint of green to me).

    The correct colour is beige...Tamiya sand is good.  It was a painted aluminum part, and the paint usually did not last long.

    Great trade with Jon Williams and Jesse Talmage.  Thanks guys!
  4. VRM added a post in a topic 67 Camaro Stinger hoods...   

    Yep, I am looking for the hood and inserts from the other Revell '67 kit.  Sending a PM to you both.  Thanks!

    They are the Revell Stinger hoods from this kit...I'll even throw in a set of the traction bars from the same kit with each hood.

    67 Camaro Stinger hoods...
    I have 2 Revell 67 Camaro Stinger hoods available that I would like to trade for 2 of the Revell '67 Camaro SS hoods with chrome inserts.

    Well, the one bid up to $77 may have a shill...

    that has only ever bid on this one auction.  Couple others have low bid counts too...Going to be interesting to see if this bid is retracted at the last minute.
    I have such faith in humanity...

    Well, to me it is...keeping the centreline is beyond my skills.  I dont like doing bodywork, and any time I have to do anything really complicated it just ends up going back in the box.  I would rather do the painting.

    Yep, needs a B pillar too.  I did not see that as a real problem to do myself.

    69 Olds F85
    Hi All,
    Does anybody know of someone making parts to convert a '69 442 to an F85?  I'm mostly looking for the grille and hood.  The hood does not have a depression in the middle like the 442 hood in the kit does.  The grille has vertical fins...probably not too difficult to convert the kit grille.
    Thanks!

    From Camaros.org - probably the best authority out there for this type of stuff.
    http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml
    All 1967 models used monoleaf design rear springs.
    For 1968, only models with the 12-bolt rear end received multi-leaf springs. This included all SS models, the Z28, and the L30/M20 327/275hp 4-speed. All other 1968 models used monoleaf springs.
    In 1969, all models with 12-bolt axles received multi-leaf springs and all models with 350ci engines (10- or 12-bolt) received multi-leaf springs. Vehicles with 307 and 327 engines received mono-leaf springs.

    Emerald and Tripoli are different, but it is hard to tell unless you see them next to each other.  They are both pretty stunning.
    Just curious for the Camaro fans - what level of interest is there for Revell to do a convert based on the '67
    Options might be:
    Pace car.
    6 cyl with flat hood and steelies and drum brakes.

    Are those still the Recall Wheels on the chrome tree?

    Emerald is the lighter shade.  Check here:

    Some things you all did not seem to catch from the instruction sheet - Deluxe interior, Torque Ds, tail panel with backup lights, intake, etc.  And the important Stinger hood and new grille.  Looks like a good one!
