Bob I sent you a message.
As for Firestone's, wouldn't the sportscar 200s be the correct tire on a 69 if that's what you wanted

I just bought a challenger 9000 pound 4 post. My dealer sold them and bend pak.  He said they had better luck with warrantee issues and getting parts with challenger. They are in Louisville Ky.  About the biggest difference I could see, bendpak needs an air supply to release the locks, the challenger has a lever.  I believe both need to be held until the lift is clear down. I dont have a compressor on all the time so this worked out ok.  Bendpak does have a device that is supposed to pump a bit of air as it goes up and store it. The salesman told me after I had bought mine, that the installers didnt like the device.  Not sure why.  They wanted 850 to deliver and assemble mine and a friend and I did it ourselves. We had a bit of a snag but wasnt bad after we got it moved in the building. It is heavy and we used a skid loader.

My Z has the 140 cam and springs in it.  They had orange paint on them. If you have the aluminum retainers that were used with the springs, dont use them.  They were prone to cracking and bad things happen.  I was lucky mine survived

I did run across the chrome tape kit and that sounded like a nightmare to put on. The pen might be easier and easy to touch up. What kind of pen did you use?  Wonder what a sharpie would do....

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

This is now some form of red and needs the front fenders and hood painted and may go back to the green. This will be one of those deals if the front is off and the engine is out, oh lets pull the subframe and grab the rotisserie lol

You guys are making this difficult!!
The vinyl top would help break it up
I had heard it called mountain green. Looks like grecian was dropped half way thru production

Thats probably why they dropped the color was the name.
I found something for an engine I have and it has an average paint job in red, and it needs the fenders redone. Original color is grecian green and not sure I would put it back to that color.

If you are trying to get it to the 0 line it will die.
I would only pull it if the vac advance can is hitting something. Do you have a timing tape on the dampner??
