Chris,
On the black 69 RS/Z I used enamel reducer to remove the black bug bomb someone used to "touch up" under the hood. The enamel reducer will not hurt the original paint on the firewall or inner fenders but it may not be so kind to the B on the firewall, you may want ot mask off where the B is, clean the rest thoroughly and then go back to work on the B much slower.

Who is the best company to buy original parts from?

What are you planning on doing to the car? If the car is as original as it appears, you will want to find good original low wear parts or NOS parts. Most reproduction parts are not 100% authentic when compared to originals and they will detract from the appeal of the car.

I posted the photos of the ford... I was illustrating what the product I recommended will do without harming what is there.

I love the term Restoration Graffiti... that is awesome... register and trade mark it John.

Sir I am going to have to ask you to put down the grease pencil and step away from the Camaro.

Just say no to Restoration Graffiti.
Shirts... bumper stickers...

WOW what a time capsule.
Please proceed slowly anything you do to alter or refinish anything could diminish the historical integrity as well as diminish the $$ value of the car as a survivor.
One of the best products to clean with out causing more damage is to use www.safestrustremover.com

The last ones I saw were 2500 for the roof rails and 2500 for the doors... so Jim is selling them pretty fairly priced.

That's about right...
If he didn't know the pricing on those item I am sure he just had a massive heart attack! LOL

If the original carpet is just faded you will want to dye it back black with some RIT dye... I have done it many times. Just take the carpet out of the car and clean it. Let it dry for a few days and then take it out in the sun and following the instructions mix your dye  and work it into the carpet with a long bristled brush.  Let it dry throughly and then reinstall... NOTHING fits like the original, and even if they have some wear I think in the end you will be happy you kept the orginals.

The ones dated for a pace car will bring $200 but the other dates are not near as in demand...
around $100

There really is no reference manual other than Jerry McNeish's Book. If you don't have it I recomend that be one of the first things you buy.

It will give you the correct finishes on everything.

As far as over spray and etc... you are going to have to carefully clean and see what you find.
There are alot of very good threads over on the yenko.net site showing highly detailed restorations from the Super Car Workshop among others... they are very accurate in their replication of returning cars to how they find them... paint runs and etc on firewalls and sub frames etc.

Yep and Endura... forgot about that... how authentic are you going back with the resto? Drips over spray the whole nine yards? I know the interior might as well be new... it is beautiful... Gold done right looks Killer...

973  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: looking for an #1111489 distributor on: May 08, 2008, 09:53:38 AM
Yep, I would go with the Oct 24th one...
974  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: sub frame painting on: May 08, 2008, 09:52:27 AM
Thanks in advance for the pics...
I kinda wish I would have taken on painting the car for you... It was so original, like the black one.
It will be extremely nice when it is done. OG RS, no spoilers flat hood and V-top... can't wait to see it.

Welcome over here Lawrence... how is the Resto coming? Can't wait to see the OG car when it is done...
Sub frame was painted when it came from he manufacturer... not very good paint though.
Most of the time the paint sticks to the line clips and makes it appear as though there is no paint under them.
