Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Tried to install my new kicker audio stereo and realized that I am not smart enough to install it but I am smart enough not to try��

I don't know why this got posted here. It was supposed to go to the what did you do to your truck today thread.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

LT1, do you have the correct nuts that mount the AC box to the firewall?

Could you show me what they look like? I have two styles on mine and can't tell if either one is correct. This pic of yours shows which ones I am referring to.

Thanks!

Jon(60-66) would be the guy to answer this, he has an NOS AC kit and will have all the hardware with it new.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

I did look at his "Dealer Installed A/C" thread earlier. No pics of the nuts, but the diagram, along with the AIM, shows what looks like a flange/washer nut. The nuts previously installed were this type of nut and a stamped, (for emblems?) type nut.

I just went to Lowe's and found a couple of free-spinning flange nuts.

You're saying this is the correct nut?

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Hmmm, I was gonna assume that this type of nut wouldn't be to bolt on something that heavy. Emblems, maybe.

Guess I'll rethink this again. They are easy to find, however.

Thanks for the tip.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Winston is correct about the nut. Its more about sealing force than supporting weight since the weight is carried by the studs. Theres also support from the bracket to the dash. Lowes nuts are all wrong for this.

Close enough for me. Sometimes you have to decide when to draw the line...

I bet if you could find them repro'd they wouldn't be much better!

Thanks for all the info.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Well , that's why I have "parts trucks" I rarely if ever use store bought fasteners when putting one of these back together in "original" form. I Reuse many original nuts and bolts with the correct head markings and size and simply clean and replate them. Makes a BIG difference when you see any restoration done. My biggest turn off is seeing a restoration and every nut and bolt was bought at the local hardware store , all of your local hardware is now Chinese and is NOT the same thread pitch or diameter most the time. Theres a company that actually makes most of these fasteners exact. Pretty big catalog selection right down the the head markings and GM part numbers if you needed something speciphic. I will try to get that info and post it later. If you're doing a restoration , its worth it , resto mod or modified , who cares.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

On my 1965 K20, listed next to "Paint" on the kick panel plate are the numbers 80-72367 and 96890. Does anyone know what these numbers mean?

I have searched the numbers and have tried to find a match on every 65 Chevy paint color sheet I could find with no luck.

Exterior is a very rough cream white. Firewall is blue and I see some blue under the white around the cowl. Interior is a gold-ish tan color. Here is a picture of the firewall with the original markings. You can see a little of the white up on the cowl. VIN is K2535S124324
