    Cue-Ball's Citrus Green 1970

    Back from the dead. It's only been a mere 5 years since I last updated my thread, and my damn car still isn't done. But I'm back and very near completion, so I figured I'd better update the thread on exactly what happened. I won't be able to update too many pictures until I can get home and...

    Cue-Ball's Citrus Green 1970

    The carpet in these pictures is NOT original. It's cut pile instead of the correct loop style. If you search for posts by me, there's a thread where I posted several pictures of original interior cars. It's an upholstery thread, but you can clearly see the carpet color. Having said that, it's...

    Green Interior Paint question;1970 code 723

    Here are a few pictures of original (or mostly original) interiors for comparison. You can see that the color is fairly dark, and not at all "silvery" (the textured parts look lighter because of the lighting, but the non-textured parts are clearly a dark green). In fact, it is very...

    Green Interior Paint question;1970 code 723

    I was able to get a match on my A-pillar covers, dash (metal portion), and rear package tray (just beneath the rear window) pretty easily. It's the plastic and vinyl parts, such as the sail panels and panels between the rear seat and wheel tubs, that I can't seem to find a match for. My dash...

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    The question is, does the Fisher manual help at all as a screw and part reference for the interior? It was a blind buy for me since I can't find pictures of the inside contents anywhere on the net.

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    The Fisher manual I'm talking about is green and white. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230818301943 I've also spent plenty of time on the AMK website and not seen any sort of assembly manual type reference. I use the AMK docs a lot for referencing GM screw part numbers, but...

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    Thanks for that info, Desperado. Once I get the Fisher manual I'll report back here. I have no idea what sort of info it contains, but it seemed like it could be promising.

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    I never even knew there was a Fisher body manual available! I was able to find one on eBay for a reasonable price so I went ahead and picked it up. But I probably won't receive it for a week, thanks to the holiday weekend mail schedule. :-/

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    I saw that they have the kits, but didn't think to ask about a reference of which ones go where. I'm confident I have the screws I need (or can easily get them). I'm pretty shocked this stuff isn't in the assembly manual, actually. Other than the dashboard, the entire interior is basically just...

    Screw reference for interior panels?

    I'm putting the interior back in my car and having trouble with which screws go where. I baggied and labeled everything, but over the last 2+ years things have gotten mixed together and lost. I've got the 1970 assembly manual, but it does not list anything for any interior panels (just the...

    Green Interior Paint question;1970 code 723

    I *think* I got my seat covers through Classic Industries, but it's been a long time. I'd have to check through my receipts to be sure. Edit: Also, I'm not sure these are actually the correct original seat covers. I've seen a couple of green interior cars with seat covers that look a different...

    Green Interior Paint question;1970 code 723

    I do not think I ever stumbled across the correct colors. The problem stems from the fact that multiple shades of green are used in these cars (the upholstery, the door panels, the plastic panels, and the dash are all different shades) and that my car wasn't original when I bought it (the...

    LOCAL For Sale/Trade parts section

    I'm looking for a set of stock 1970-ish small block exhaust manifolds (not the restricted late 70's 305 ones) and one of the Z-shaped rods that goes from the door handle to the latch mechanism. Anyone in the Seattle area have these items for sale?

    Green Interior Paint question;1970 code 723

    I'm going to resurrect this thread from the dead to ask a related question. The above answer about Ditzler 44173 worked great for the metal interior panels, but what about the soft and vinyl parts? I bought OER M24 Dark Green interior dye, thinking that it would be the right color for my dash...

    Z21 stainless drip rail mouldings. What goes under them?

    Nobody has any idea? I know the Z21 molding option wasn't super popular, but I thought somebody would have done this before. Wasn't steel/aluminum molding like this standard on the later model cars? I've got the 1970 assembly manual and there's nothing in there about what to use. Similarly...
