Thanks Mac, did you or has anyone else ever replace the foam that is on the main flap and if so what did you use?  Something that could last a long time considering the heat that blows on it.

Thanks for the paint information.  One other quick question....  I took the whole unit apart to restore it and now I'm ready to reassemble, my question is what type of foam to use that acts as a seal, the original foam gets dry rotted and falls apart and is on both sides of the flap, also what is the best adhesive to use, the original looks like black tar :-)

Regards,

Hans and John - Thank you so much!!!  Would you consider that a Satin finish?
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Inner heater box color on: July 14, 2012, 04:48:58 PM
Was wondering what color the inner part of the heater box (under dash) should be, the same as the outer 60-70% gloss?  Or is it glossier? Or does it really matter?

Not sure I'm tracking with which decal is the correct one, is the one that Oaklyss and I show incorrect?  Or are they correct for later production which means there are two versions?  I would love to buy one but if I buy the one that is shown in the first post then technically do I have an incorrect decal for my car?

I probably should have pointed out this is a Norwood car, and late June based on the VIN.

I might be a little late to the party here, but for what it is worth I have a picture of my 06A Z/28 sticker and I thought it to be the original and it looks like Oaklyss with the S at the end of line one.

Mike and John, I owe her way more then dinner just for the fact that she let me chase this car, she could have a lot of shoes and dresses for what I have into it so far, not to mention what I still have left to do.  Next on the docket is to put the subframe under it and attach the body panels and doors so that the fit can be set up.  Then prep it for paint, Cortez Silver, no vinyl top.  I'll take pictures along the way and share, though it may take a while as funds dictate :-)

Thanks everyone!!  When we loaded it up, Mike had a fork lift with long extension arms, so getting it in was fairly easy.  We pushed it all the way to the front that way if I had to jam on the brakes it would not go flying.  The bed of the truck did not have floor tie downs, so I picked up some from Tractor Supply on the way down and we drilled the floor and bolted them in, and when I unloaded I filled the holes with dole rod.  It was loaded and sitting on 2 4x4s, the box in the back of the truck is the hood and inside the car you can see the boxes that contain the doors.  I did not take the front fenders down, they are in the attic awaiting prep.  Mike said the subframe is primered with some sort lead primer, I'll make sure not to eat the paint chips :-)  

Now to the unloading part, I got everything unstrapped and slid two four wheel floor dollies under it so it would be easier to roll it to the back.  I had Mike make me two hooks that I could bolt into the bumper holes and I hooked up an engine hoist.  I raised it up so that the front was on the two pinch welds and took out the dollies, I did not want it take off suddenly if it remained on the dollies.  I had the wife stand outside with the engine hoist while I got inside with one of the 4x4s and leveraged it at the fire wall tunnel lifting it slowly to slide it on the pinch welds.  At about 80% of the way out the wife started to freak, so I had her get in the truck to take over that operation but she could not figure out what I was talking about and I did not want to leave the hoist unattended so I told her to get back on the hoist we are almost done.  So she toughed it out and I got the front end to the lift gate quickly and from that point it was easy, I had her lower the gate slowly as I lowered the hoist.  Once it was close to the gound I put the dollies under the pinch welds and with the hoist still attached, rolled it into the garage.

It has been a while, but finally I got it home.  Now I'm a little bit closer to bringing my 69 Z back to life.  I could not get a hold of an enclosed trailer, so I thought about it, then decided I could use a 16' box truck.  Drove it back 450 miles and with only help from the wife we unloaded it without a scratch.  I'll let you guys guess how we did it  Cheesy  (hint, we did not use a fork lift).

Just to add one more question to this, while looking at more pictures on Ken Lucas's site, which by the way has some great photos, I noticed this picture https://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations/SteveKate69Z281#5253880912096151058

This strap is attached at the block, is this incorrect, since after reading above it sounds like it should attach to the valve cover?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Ground Strap Question on: January 08, 2012, 04:48:47 PM
These pictures are from my 1969 Z/28, late June build.  First picture is of the strap still attached and the second is of the hole on the frame.  Hope this helps some.  Also on Ken Lucas's site you can see it here https://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations/SteveKate69Z281#5253878278198530850

Thanks for the kind words Jax!!  The more I look at your photos the more I'd like to have one.  A few quick questions and comments.  If you are doing a Z28 model will you have a manual transmission and 302 sticker, and can you do a flat hood?  Also the Caution sticker (decal) that you made for the fan shroud is not a Chevy sticker, I think that is a Ford sticker, a common mistake by a lot of the full size cars that get judged at the Camaro Nationals.  Can't wait to see the completed project!!

Hi Jax,

I love models, here is a link to some that I have done, http://z28models.tripod.com/   These are 1/25 scale Revell, I have found that this is an excellent kit, does need a little bit of tweeking because they molded in the wheel opening trim, there is also a 1/12 scale by Revell that is also excellent, the body's for both are very faithful.  Are you making a kit, that would be outstanding given the detail in you pictures, just make sure you get the body RIGHT or it will look funny if you know what I mean, there are plenty of bad diecasts. The Highway 61 diecast is very good though.  MCW is a great place to get matching factory paint and yes I painted the stripes.

Regards,
Jerry K.
