Trans-Am Camaros / Re: JL8/J56 or HD Service rear end setup question

With the fixed mount calipers yes there is plenty of tolerance for axle end play, if you are worried about thickness of the C clip then set up every thing with rotor and caliper sans pads, insert different thickness C clips and check where the rotor and caliper are in relation to one another... I think you are going to have .375+ inboard and outboard of the rotor.

Your fenders are typical of coverage Dave... easily replicated just set them up with a 2 inch gap and shoot the panels...

There is a spec for Grey primed wheels... typically they would be service wheels however there is little doubt Kelsey Hayes would substitute them for bare wheels if necessary. My 69 Z 10D had 3 of the original wheels which were all 9 20 AD's with grey backs.

Cavity numbers - typically used when there is a problem so it can be isolated to a certain cavity in the mold...

I like Monza Red, it is brighter than Garnet... it was a Corvette Color for 69 as well as being the color used for RED striping.

What do you mean? There are a few different parts and exponentially number of different combos of those parts however the ducting... If you mean A/C vs standard, yes there are numerous parts which with out doubt were superceded or changed with new parts during production - becoming an absolute authority on Air conditioning parts changes during production would be a HUGE research project.

There have been a few A/C cars meticulously restored on this forum... do searches and start reading... there are volumes of info at your finger tips.

hmm in the orphans section there is a Z28 engine VIN 482289... it would be worth the effort to find out if the 8 is really an 8.

Great photos and great job illustrating what is required to do this job correctly.

Like Charlie stated without Paperwork what is it? 
A story and an incorrect restoration...

Documented L78 verts with born with drive trains are six figure cars even needing a resto.

Run the vin through every search service you can find...
A friend of mine contacted a 68 Z owner with his original engine and the guy said he has a DZ in it and didn't care to acquire the born with engine, (5-7 years ago) so you never know.
