Thanks again for the input. Gonna try the stick and tube to see which works better tomorrow. I've blasted the wheels so I am starting with some clean metal and hopefully they'll turnout ok.

Thanks for the input guys. Gonna try the JB Weld Steel Stick. Read up on this stuff and it sounds like it is exactly what I need. Thanks again. Grin

Saw the previous post on restoring wheels and was going to do the same thing to mine for the face of the rim for cosmetics. I am more interested in the bead area if filler would work well there and be able to seal the tire once it is mounted. In the article in musclecar review did they address repairing this area? Thanks for any input.

I have some original steel wheels that have some pitting in the bead sealing area and would like to save the wheels. Anyone have any recommendation for repairing them?

White Post is very highly regarded here in VA. Can't go wrong in choosing them for any brake work you need.

Well from what I read on the CRG site on the D80 option, the only cars that were required to have spoilers were the pace car replicas and later build date Z/28's. Still would like to know when the spoilers became a mandatory option on Z/28's though.

I wasn't saying that the tag wasn't fake, I was just wondering if I missed anything else on it. I'm hoping to buy myself a 1969 Z/28 someday and am trying to learn as much as I can so I don't end up on the wrong side of the deal someday.  Grin BTW what was the ballpark date on spoilers becoming mandatory on Z/28's? I read on the CRG site that they did became mandatory late in production but couldn't find the ballpark date.

I'll put some up when I get back home to VA. In NC right now visiting family for Christmas.

Thanks Kurt. I wasn't sure on the primer thing. Looked in the CRG site but I was looking under the paint section. This is a great site and resource here. I'm on here almost daily reading up on stuff. Thanks to all the CRG members and forum contributors for all there knowledge and expertise!

Since we're talking about Corvettes, here is another heartbreaker for ya! Guys from SW Virginia may already know about this one. My friend told me he found a supposed matching numbers '67 big block roadster. I didn't believe him at first so he ended up giving me the directions to where it was at so I could check it out for myself. Decided to take a drive out there and check it out and lo and behold there it was, a Lynndale blue 67 roadster with a hardtop sitting beside a trailer just sinking into the Virginia mud. My friend ended talking with the owner and the car is not for sale. He did find out that the owner bought the car in the early 70's and ended up having some mechanical problems with it and parked it with the intention of fixing it someday but it never happened. The owner confirmed that it is a tri-power car but my buddy didn't ask if it was an L71 or L68 car. He let my friend look at the car and he said it looks like it is all there with the original paint.  It's a shame to have it sitting out like that. You would at least think he would cover it up. Here are a couple pictures I took of it when I went to see it.

Wow! I like it! Would like to have seen the trim tag though. To all the Camaro gurus out there, could you get any color you wanted to with the special order paint? I though a lot of these cars came in just primer. The Carolina blue Z/28 is the only real oddball special order paint car I know about.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Burnished brown Z/28's on: December 24, 2014, 10:02:26 PM
Yeah that's what the wife says too! I've got a good hunch though that if I sold one she would want to use the money somewhere else then so long Camaro! Besides I've had the 67 since I was 16 and the 69 is in process. Maybe when the 69 is done I could part with it but I'm attached to the 67. The C-10 is just a driver for around town and needs a bit of work itself.

Burnished Brown is one of my favorite colors from 69 along with Rallye Green. Saw a Burnished Brown 1969 Z/28 a couple years back at the Charlotte fall swap meet for sale. It was a really nice car and there was a good price tag on it! Maybe someday I'll find one in my price range although for the amount I can afford it will have to be towed home!  Grin

Oops! Thanks guys! Wasn't sure if it was second or third week on the X-codes so I went with third to be safe. Any documented cars that anyone knows of with an earlier X-code prior to the second week?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay "COPO" trim tag for sale on: August 08, 2014, 04:42:51 PM
Yes it can. My base 307 coupe is tagged as an X44 which is the code for a base model camaro. All Norwood camaros had the X codes starting around the third week of December 1968.
