'67 Pedal Paint Details

In the past, I have seen a picture here showing about where the factory paint line is for the brake,clutch, and parking brake when they dipped them in black paint. Anyone have a picture showing the cutoff between the natural metal and where the black paint started. I believe only the pedals hanging down were painted? Also, would they be satin, semi-gloss?

re: '67 Pedal Paint Details

Rodeo,

For 1966 and 1967 the brake and clutch pedals and arms were painted satin black. The parking brake arm and pedal were painted (dipped down) such that the bottom 5" was painted satin black, with the arm above that natural.

Thanks, I thought I saw a picture at one time, but I wasn't able to find it again. This helps.

Yes, this is how they should look. I assume they were dipped at the factory like the parking brake lever.

Re: '67 Pedal Paint Details

They were dipped. And at least on the day my KC 67 L78 elcamino was built, they drug something (a brush?) up the front edge of the both pedals to cover more of the front edge because it was not dipped very deep. Then apparently the brake pedal was laid down at some point before it dried because there are runs that defy gravity with the pedal hanging.

Attached are pics of my restored original brake and clutch pedal. The runs are EXACT duplicates of what was on the pedals before I blasted them. Note the top is not just nuked with cast-blast. Different finishes were used to replicate the different bare metals (and weld marks) on the various components!

Also attached is a pic of the original park pedal from my 4-door donor car after I cleaned it. That is all original, and got transplanted into the elc.

Re: '67 Pedal Paint Details

Thanks for all the pictures. My clutch pedal still had the original black paint on it. It was about an inch below where the rod bracket is welded on. I painted the brake pedal to match about the same height, with bare steel color paint for the rest of the assembly. I did the parking brake, but your pictures show a detail I probably would have missed. The release rod is paint black also. I didn't know that. Life put my project behind were I wanted to be on it, but I'm making progress. Cleaning and painting as much stuff as I can while gauges and radio are being restored. Getting stuff laid out.

Re: '67 Pedal Paint Details

Probably too late in the game, but before you ever blast natural steel parts, try dipping them in evaporust for a day. The last few brake pedal assemblys and parking brake release assemblys I've restored come out looking like day 1.
As for the parking brake pull level being black, that's news to me.
