David, It looks like an upside down P to me.


I picked up my copy from Brad last night. He was pretty tired after driving back from the show. Very nicely put together book with even some pictures of my car in there.

I mentioned some people are looking for his contact info, I am sure he will be reaching out soon.


Lloyd posted a screen shot of a Facebook post. I'd try Facebook to contact Brad.

Thanks for the detail pictures of the RS equipment on the core support. I'll reference those when I build out my Z10.

I found these pictures transferring files to a new computer. Hood, roof, and trunk lid were still in original lacquer.

On a side note my painter, a PPG sales rep. matched the Dusk Blue BC/CC used on my car to the original lacquer under the spoiler that had never seen the light of day. Lots of different laser scans and spray outs were done as PPG's 51 code then was too purple. Someone else was painting a "high dollar" car 51 code about that same time and PPG donated a gallon to me for the use of my deck lid.

Here's the U jam screws from my 05A Z. Black screws came with the replacement rubber seal.

This just showed up on Facebook. It's an 010 block and the casting number looks to be D 21 9.

Great job Lloyd.

Now all we need is the "Money Shot" from the inside to see the texture of the glue side of the tape.  ;)

Are you going to be selling the tape kits? I'll need one for the Z10 I am doing.

I think I read somewhere the fuel pump plate was not on during the painting process and should be Black. Mine was Black during Legends judging.

Take a short drive to Camaro Central in Richmond, KY. Talk mask to mask with the people behind the counter. It might be a more enjoyable experience than dealing with shipping companies if there is a problem. The last time I stopped by they had been remodeling their show room. I have always picked up more parts than I went in for.


After posting your information, I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of your original engines are found.  ::)

The grommet for the two vacuum lines going to the headlight switch is to the left of the grommet with the two wires for your cowl induction hood.

Just took a second look at the picture. The wire from the fuel sending unit is over the tape, there was "no stick" left on the tape. The glue from the anti-squeak strap was the only thing holding the tape on the tank.
