Amen to that...

Isn't MM Royal Plum paint?   I love that color when it's done right.  Warm over that 6 banger with a cam and a clifford intake and it could be a really nice cruiser.  I like it.

Thanks 1968RSZ28 for the link- From that information, it looks like unless these mated hubs/rotors were index marked prior to disassembly, they could be out of balance when assembled again.  Starting to look like more time and trouble than these things are worth. LOL

Thanks gents for the quick response.   Seems the rotors on these 2-pc units I'm looking to pick up were removed from the hubs long ago and recently turned to about .980 inches with some unknown bolts holding them in place.  I suspected that the combination might have to be turned again after assembly with correct bolts to make them true.  Bolts probably should be at least grade 5 if not grade 8.  I'll have to check my original assembled units for head markings and then buy new bolts and have re-turned.  Further comments/recommendations welcome.

Anyone out there have the torque specs for the bolts that hold the '69 2-piece disc brake rotor to the hub?

My original engine bay Z10 has a green P still visible on the driver side just to the left( from a driver perspective) of the trim tag.  I'll have to check for the T under the trim tag and on the other side for stamps and mixed colors.

Sage advice from the master himself.  I'll take that information and run with it. Thanks again!

Hey folks - I'm in the process of doing an R&R of the 12 bolt rear axle seals in my '69 pace car, and as such need to refill with lube.  I am thinking that a synthetic would be best but looking for experienced opinions regarding a particular brand, etc.   Any recommendations on best lube/fluid to use for this application?  I want to do it once and do it right.  Thanks in advance for your input.

Anybody out there with information on big block timing covers?  I might have a chance to dig through my parts this weekend and find a couple of examples to compare to others if posted.  Thanks to all who have commented to date.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Timing Cover date codes on: July 28, 2013, 08:47:43 PM
It sure looks like the small blocks are trending toward the week of production and year.  "3 68" would be 3rd week of calendar year 1968.  Could big blocks use a different format?  Kurt mentions a letter in the mix.  Was that for small block or big block?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Timing Cover date codes on: July 27, 2013, 12:44:32 PM
Looked through all the threads on this subject and could not find a definitive set of guidelines for small block vs big block timing cover date code format.
So far the codes are supposedly week and year of production i.e.  21 69 is 21st week of 69, Julian calendar date vs year i.e. 21st DAY of 1969 or even MONTH of production vs year.  It also appears to vary from small block to big block . Can any of the guru's here summarize what the latest tribal knowledge is on these date codes?  THANKS...

Agree with the theory about removal for drag racing.  I bought a z-car years ago that was set up the same way for drag racing.  It was a bear to stop so I replaced the booster so I could drive it on the street.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Firewall Blackout Paint on: September 07, 2009, 07:33:01 PM
Thanks for all the feedback.  After considering all of the input from folks online here and shooting a test panel I decided to pull the trigger and use the Black-it.   Wet sanded and prepped the firewall and shot it in thin coats.  Results were great as soon as it flashed and after a 24 hour cure time it looked even better.  The first test area must have been a fluke because it had more gloss than the prepped and shot firewall does.  Now on to the trunk...
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Firewall Blackout Paint on: July 27, 2009, 05:22:33 PM
  I assumed that the original black out had oxidized since it was sprayed, but there is still a notable difference when compared to the BlackIt product.  I have to finish wet sanding the firewall before it gets painted anyway so I can monitor this post for a few days before I get into the job.

BTW: Don't anyone get out of shape over the "experienced opinions" statement.  I was looking for some folks that had recently dealt with a like situation and determined a good plan to get the firewall close to an accurate finish.  No sense in reinventing the wheel.  Getting JohnZ's perspective in the mix was a bonus. 
Thanks for the replies and keep them coming.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Firewall Blackout Paint on: July 26, 2009, 01:53:34 PM
Looking for experienced opinions on firewall blackout paint.  Percent gloss, manufacturer, aerosol preferred.  Was going to use the OEM BlackIT Poly black in eggshell finish on my resto car.  Problem is when I inspected my other unrestored 69 the paint looked almost dead flat black.  Tested the mentioned eggshell OEM around the heater motor area on the outboard face of the cowl and there is more gloss than the original finish.   I assume there was some variance in the gloss from the factory but I want to get this right and not too glossy.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...
