Hijack:  for all their 'knowledge' the Hendrick group advertised it as a September 69 build! Love to see the protect-0-plate Wink

I would agree. If you use the SS springs on the ZL-2 Hood, closing it is difficult and when opened it can pop right past the safety catch!

There's no reason to believe the POP is a fake. If you're going to fake one, you'd get the date right.  If there is something wrong my bet is it's at the engine/tranny stamp.  Any pics of those?

the thought of having a perfectly restored nut and bolt car is to me just a thought. I want a driver- a nice one but not perfect - chips/dings be damned! I'm not going to live forever, My son can do with it what he wants when I'm gone
Well, I'm just about finished turning the nut and bolt restored car into a 'day 2''  Very happy with the result.  Edelbrock, Holly, Accel, Dynomax.  Stock wheels for now.

04C Norwood Survivor Z28


10D (early) Norwood 51 k mile Z28 in restoration








No disrespect.... the first and last pic are after the 'restoration' correct? Any before the re-spray?

I have successfully done numerous plastic repairs.  Fiberglass patch will not work and make a mess.  Polyethylene repairs successfully with heating donor patches. ABS and some mixed composite plastics repair extremely well with plumbing cement.  There are PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and ABS cements that will literally cold weld parts together. I agree you should do your research and try a small area to assess your results... but if you get the right material and cements together you will amaze yourself... find some donor material and try it on an edge you can cut off if not successful.  Where appropriate you can overlap material to reinforce it adjacent to the missing/damaged bolt holes.  Do not be afraid to ask a body shop for advice as this part is certainly quite rare.

Good luck,

Me , I'm just freakin amazed tht the bidding went to $9600 for that rusty pile of headaches.  The vin should be put in the data base as 'scrapped'!!

Handling and stock first gens can't be used in the same sentence.  The parts available back then were all about 'straight line' racing and emulating Grumpy.

 It's only in recent decades that owners suddenly wanted cars to 'handle' and parts to suit (coil over, tubular A arms,drop spindles, disc brake packages, SFC, poly bushings etc) became available due to demand. Sure you could set it up to run an oval, but wouldn't try any hairpins. That was for the Vette boys.

Not a double stamp... looks like he ran a crayon or pencil to highlight the stamping... I can see them losing the date part '24' because they punched the hole with some variation I'm thinking?

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Aluminum Polishing: first try on: April 07, 2011, 07:21:15 PM
So I found these old M/T valve covers I wanted to use on my car.... pretty rough shape if you look at the link.

Anyway I'm not much for finesse so just grabbed a 1/4 sheet sander and started with #60 all the way to #400 oxide paper, red compound, white compound and then aluminum polish. Lots of deep scratches left and could have spent way more time with detail compounding but just went for the gusto!

Hey there... putting away a few parts and just wanted to be sure before I clean them up and  stored them:

Was the carburetor and distributor on the engine when it was painted orange?   L48 1969 or just the distributor?

The lift hooks were on, the dipstick was not, the water outlet was on, the exhaust manifolds were on, water pump and no pulley's?   How about the fuel pump?


thanks guys.... I read the engine assy. process and saw pics from the 67 line but wasn't too sure if anything had changed.
