601  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Z front and rear springs on: December 09, 2009, 07:00:20 AM
I finally got the frame and underside of the car painted and am ready to assemble.  I need to buy front and rear springs.  The car is a 68 Z and would have the 4 leaf springs in the back.  I am not sure I want to pony up to the $400 for a set of correct springs when I should be able to buy a good set of replacements for just under $200.  I do not plan to have the car judged or anything.  Can anyone give me advice on a good set of replacements to get a good ride height?  What about the fronts?  Any advice on them as well?  Where would be the best place to buy them?

Why are you replacing them? I had my originals rearched and they are doing great over a year later.

Rather then posting the numbers for everyone to see would it not be best to examine the casting number and the casting date for further clues? We have not done that yet.

Casting date would offer a little more info. The casting number not much.
PM the stampings to Kurt S or others than can give you good info if not comfortable posting it.

Thanks for all the replys but I am still having a problem figuring out what some of it means. I mean some of the stuff is confusing. If you have this certain number it might be Z87 or something and if you have this number you have Z24 or something else. Then you get into subsections of this section and this certain number belongs to this other subsection  and around and around I go. But anyway I am still just as lost.
But THANKS
Daniel

Did you click on the link that 68ZProject posted above? It is straighforward if you use the info posted.

Coat the driveshaft with Boe Shield after you have removed the paint. Re coat it about every 90 days and you should be ok unless you get caught in a downpour.

The springs are a different story. You may have to clear those.

Here's the original fan shroud bolt.

John what headmarking does that bolt have?

Thanks,

Mine has never been touched, and all of those bezel/cluster/heater control screws are black phosphate.

Mine are the same as John's.
607  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 302 bellhousing and starter not fitting?? on: November 15, 2009, 09:06:11 AM
I agree with Stingr69. I just recently sold a 621 for $250. You can buy good 403's for $100.
If you are rebuilding the 302, I would do it right regarding the B/H and starter.

Good Luck,
608  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Paint Advice Needed on: November 11, 2009, 07:40:40 PM
I have used and have read about many people using DP-90 on the subframe. I used a black lacquer sash paint on my inner fenders, DP-90 on my firewall (I think) DP 90 on the underside (I did overspray my car), My springs are gray steel color, I have read that the springs were either black or natural gray steel color. Mine were originally not painted so I went back that way. Front suspension is not painted, natural color steel. McNeish's book has a really good section in the back of his book that gives you the percentage of gloss used on various parts off the car.

611  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: NOS Rally Caps on: November 02, 2009, 10:48:35 PM
5800 is probably the assembly of the 5802 and 5805 cap and ornament; Norris was the original supplier.

Thanks John.

The caps actually look a little dull. I dont know if I should polish them or just leave them alone. What is correct for NCRS?

I bought a set of NOS Rally Caps and the gentleman that sent them to me sent what looks like the original box. Not that big of a deal but kinda of cool to see that these caps have been sitting in what looks like an original box. JohnZ can probaly confirm this.

If you are talking about the decal that showed the VIN and date the car was complete then yes, 69 DID have it later in the production run. I dont know exactly when they started but I think it was after 04C.

Are you talking about the cardboard piece that hangs behind the rear seat? If so yes standard interior gets one.
