 :) I do like finding and trying to replicate per my pics. I toned it down a bit with the steering linkage from what I found,,,but did "tag" it. So my beautiful, restored, powdercoated garage art BV will have a slash of white and splash of green to show something was there.

Next on the agenda is getting the engine and trans in. My April is pretty booked, hoping for it to be breathing life by June. Summer is always busy, finish underhood and rehang front clip late summer, early fall. Hopefully I can get it in during the summer to have the headliner replaced, while its sitting. #@&#g mouse left a quarter size hole in the rear of an otherwise pristine piece of material.While we were having the house built, and it was in storage.

Jano,That is some really original looking crud on your BV.


OMG!! Whole underneath was sprayed with it, also layers of Rustoleum and burn out box rubber. On top around 20 years of dust. But..it did entomb the steel all these years, no corrosion. Plus car never saw snow. Or rain for that matter. I never saw the wipers work, bench tested ok. Wanted to post some inspection graffiti. I like finding the stuff.

My plans are to finally drive and show it. After a 15 year hiatus, it is back on the road and with a fresh restoration.
In the picture I am getting ready for a spot buff and polish before I put the car cover on it. I took it for another shake down run this past weekend to check the front end alignment I did. It felt so good to be driving this car again.

Yea time flys, I think I'm around eight years in this project.No desire for it to continue to be shop decoration. Two shows next year, then street duty. At under 40,000 miles,there remains a little play room on the odometer. Lord knows my kid will drive it when they plant me, lol.

Jano...  so what kind of 'professional coating' is he putting on your exhaust pipes?  Some of us need to know.. :)

High temp powder, rated 850 degrees, maybe 1200, we were bouncing through products for the pipes. We looked through a batch of steel product samples and he found one which matched the exposed tail pipe, with a low shine. Exhaust manifolds are getting treated with what he was spraying on some industrial oven grates, high temp. 12-1400. Slight texture. I'm aware black is not correct, and thought of doing them with a silicon product I saw on a Chevelle site. But putting something industrial grade on them appeals to me, plus I like black. I'll see how everything comes out, experimenting. I'm sick of moving them around after all these years. And...money saved on a re-pop exhaust( lots) can be put to better use on the car. When finished, If you like the outcome, I can PM you his contact info Gary.

Differential: complete rebuild to include new 4.10's. After around 49 years, the 88's are coming out. I still the possess the original GM 4.10's, but they are to remain boxed up. C clip eliminators are coming off, housing ends are to be repaired . Yoke inspected. Also getting fitted with a set of replacement springs from Mr. Harris. And circa 70's Lakewood slappers. Rear drums original, well within specs, shoes and hardware were replaced around 1990, I think, but present no signs of use...dirty. BP getting blasted and resprayed, new brake hardware and cylinders. Bob also hooked me up with a pan for the 302. Only difference I see in the springs is 1 dimple on 1 leaf: L&R.
Bushings still in great shape, but will be boxed and shelved with the others. I may post a pic of the later, if I find a part#, didn't look. I'm aware no rocker trim or push bars on the bumper,,,doing Day 2. On the fence re-pop polys vs. BFG's. Considering the originals are in storage, but not safe to drive on, I'm leaning towards the BFG's. If the car was just trailer bound, I'd mount the originals. Two shows next year, and it's seeing street duty.

Exhaust: out getting professionally done. Cleaned up L tail pipe to reveal part #, matches UPC. There is an industrial coating shop very near by(minutes) He's a car guy and takes side projects in for a really nice price. Just wants a pic of the car when it's done for a calendar. Rest of the part #'s will get documented when returned. None on muffler. Note diameter difference L vs. R tailpipe. Also posted R tailpipe weld. Discussed some years ago in the forum.

Not so much an obsession as an appreciation. Alot of money sitting around back there, he serves his purpose. Send me a pm sometime dwc, have a few parts you maybe interested in if your going street/strip-day 2 with the project. Cleaning shop this winter.
