Is the car original paint?
If so... what is the overall condition minus the few minor rust holes?
How much has been repainted (if any) under the hood and on the chassis?
Has any of the interior been replaced?
How are the floors?

If the car has original paint and it is not in too bad of shape then personally I would weld in the few patches that would be required and then touch up the car, clean it up thoroughly and drive it.
If it is very original it is worth more unrestored than it is restored IMHO,

JohnZ was the wiper transmission area to be blacked out on all cars except white stripe Z's where it was whited out?

That COPO was at Super Chevy in ATL last weekend.
Here is a link to some pics of the Black 04C 69 RS Z that I was talking about in an earlier post.

The inside of the body panels on every unrestored car that I have ever seen have only had a light mist on them.
I am working on an unrestored original paint 69 RS Z right now that has very light paint on the edges of the front fenders and front upper valence.
I was wondering about this until I saw JohnZ's post above regarding the front end bucks and the 2-3" spacing of the panels from one another.
It all makes perfect sense now. The edges of the fenders valence and hood all look correct when taking into account the spacing of the panels.

JohnZ you are right about the reaction that most peolple paying for a high end resto would have if their car came back with misted paint on the edges of the front fenders or what about the grind marks on the edge of the front and rear glass channels where the leaded seams are, or the runs in the door jambs?
Even the paint bleeding under the edge of the masking for the Z stripes... Guys would have a fit if the cars were restored to the same quality as when they left the factory.
I have stated numerous times that if you were to go back to 1969 and buy a brand new camaro, transport it to present day and enter it in a car show... It wouldn't even place.

I thought that alot of the paint "daubs" were used for line workers to quickly identify similar parts.
