Decoding/Numbers / Bring a trailer 69 z28 RS
« on: August 20, 2021, 09:05:49 PM »

Seller stated originally silver but now has orange on trim tag.  My Z is the same week and tag doesn't match at all.

Decoding/Numbers / 69Z on bring a trailer
« on: August 14, 2021, 09:53:07 PM »
Documentation for original drive train seems to be lacking.  I believe there was a comment numbers matched.  I noticed the 3 on the transmission has a different font than the engine.  Engine stamp is a lot clearer than mine.  Any comments on if either part is for that car?

Originality / Subframe marking
« on: September 28, 2020, 12:46:22 AM »
I am working on a 68 and the subframe and bottom of the car is coated in a waxy substance from the late 70s. Maybe ziebart? 
I tried the hot water power washer today and it took most of it and the paint off and found this under the paint.  Could be a H. 
Nothing too exciting but interesting

Restoration / Aftermarket core support
« on: June 21, 2020, 07:00:17 PM »
Hi Guys.
Anyone used an aftermarket core support that fit right?  I am working on a 68 and have a replacement but it is like 2 pounds lighter than a stock one and you can grab the top and flex it with your hand.  The stock one I ran across is pretty swelled up around the bushing holes to want to fix it

General Discussion / Horn spring and pin
« on: August 14, 2019, 01:32:39 PM »
Hi guys.
I am having a turn signal issue and removed the steering wheel. I thought something came off that I now can't find and wondered if it was the pin. I looked at HBC and they have a spring and pin but says non wood wheels didn't use the pin?? Does the plastic end off the horn just push in the tube where the spring is and how far do you push it in?

Restoration / 68 RS grill silver
« on: June 01, 2019, 01:50:19 PM »
I am looking for some feedback, I have an nos RS grill and it is the later all black bar one.  My car is a 10D car and from the report here, it should be one with the silver bars. Has anyone here taken a black grill and painted the silver on it??  The car has pretty much all gm parts with it and hate to put the repop grill on but might if this will not look right

Garage Talk / 81 camaro I saw
« on: August 25, 2018, 12:55:55 PM »
I hated to post this but since we have discussions on when rare isn't really worth much I thought this car might fit right into that. It's an 81 base Camaro with 18,000 miles on it and it is a nice Survivor. The only thing I could tell changed was it had a radio added. It never had a radio. This car had a V6 no air conditioning, it did have T-tops, a rear spoiler and beautiful black paint. The kicker was silver interior. I wasn't sure I really liked it but it was in pristine condition. The lady was trying to sell it and if it had air conditioning I might have been interested but I'm not sure if I could have stood looking at those seats!

General Discussion / Spare and jack mounting
« on: July 06, 2018, 03:16:58 AM »
I know I just read a topic on this, but I could not find it with the search. I'm going to put my spare and my jack in my trunk, I found where it is at in the assembly manual. Difficult to picture in the trunk. I found where the top of the Jack goes up in the bracket towards the back of the seat and I have not figured out where the end goes towards the wheelhouse

General Discussion / Radiator shroud clip
« on: May 23, 2018, 01:12:38 AM »
 does anyone have any good tips for getting the clip beside the battery tray in? This side towards the fender wants to slide in nice but then you cannot hook it over the radiator. I've tried hooking it over the radiator but then I can't get it to slide in the slot. About to drive me crazy
