Clem,
Discuss the topic, not the person! Personal attacks are not allowed here. 1st and only warning.
I did not screw anything up.  I inspected the car just like I do any other car.  The owner at that time also agreed with Bill and me during my evaluation.  Bill G. and I have been doing this for most of our lives.  I know the Evening Orchid color very well and remember the '65 Impalas from my neighborhood in this color.  It is one of my favorites.  Show me the original order form where is says code "P" or special order paint Evening Orchid and then we'll sit down and talk.  I have the photos in my data base from my inspection that show it as Argent silver or something very close to that.  Even the original photos show that.  End of story.  If you wanted to paint the car Evening orchid, you can do what ever you want to do.  It's your car.  Good luck with your project.       
why would i pick that color out of thin air if it was not the original color?

The car was an original silver car with stripe delete.  Bill Glowacki and I both inspected what was left of the original paint on the car.  We pulled off the door panels and checked the virgin paint with no UV damage.  It was not Evening Orchid,

give it up jerry you guys screwed up. unless someone took the VIN from my 69 Z and put it on a silver car you are just CYA. the cowl cutout fpr the cold air cleaner also proves it was my Z/28. ask your buddy john hinkley about my car as he knew about the eveing orchid Z/28 long before this showed up on the camaro web sites because of my posts about it on the vetteheads web site

To be honest, the older pics of the paint look silver. My gut said orchid at first until I read what everyone else had thought. Now I'm going back to what I originally thought, Orchid. That is going to be one unique looking car. Should draw some attention.
Yep, that's a pretty color... for a girl...   Smiley     
it was for a girl it was for my wife !!

i still can't believe that some posters believe the expert over the original owner who ordered the car. i know jerry is a god here but he is not god almighty.

so your saying this car was special order paint back in 69 and that specified color was evening orchid?
yes you got it. i had corvettes,pickups and full sized chevy painted special order colors starting back in the early 60s

Oh no, not again.....
yep the paid know all there is to know about Z/28s experts screwed up and still will not admit their mistake. i bet i was driving and autocrossing Z/28 before these experts came on the scene.

when a Q jet is upside down the float holds the needle valve closed just from the weight of the float just the same as any other carb. that is how i check the needle/seat for leaks when i rebuild them by turning the Q jet upside down and applying air pressure to the fuel inlet

Welcome to the site Clem

in that long post they say to applying a coat of JBWeld.

I have read that JB Weld and ethanol don't mix. It seems that the ethanol blended gasoline will soften the JB Weld.
I don't think JB Weld should be used in a carb but they do claim it is gasoline "resistant"

First you can use a needle/seat assembly that does not have the “windows” in the bottom of the seat. This will block the fuel from being able to enter the seat and flow back.

if you do this you can run out of fuel on the high performance engines because all the fuel has to come up passed the needle and that is a restriction. most rebuild kits come with out a windowed needle seat and i would recommend you drill a .125 diameter hole thru the needle seat right above the seat to allow the fuel to come out into the float bowl without having to go up passed the needle
