From looking at mine, I'm guessing it's the same 'black' used for the black Z28 stripes...

I really like that car... Smiley          How many races did it run in Trans Am?   How well did he do with the car?  Are the log books available with the car?

that's  in it's original 'skin' ..  as a '68..  Does anyone know when it was reskinned as a '69?   If someone wanted to 'restore' it to it's former glory as a Trans Am racer, would it necessarily have to go back to the '68 skin?
1564  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: what engine motor mount did you use on z28 on: April 08, 2013, 11:18:45 PM
Optionally, use your remaining orignal good one on the RH side (passenger side of the engine) and buy an interlocking one for the LHS...  GM may have even swapped out some LHS units for interlocking ones during first year maintenance activity??

You could still buy them from Chevrolet a year or two ago... 
1566  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Trans Am racing pace car pics...are there any? on: April 07, 2013, 10:32:28 PM
.. instead of a loop, might have had just the same sort of angle iron lower stop that was on the Lagod camaro.. which was based on the tunnet being the 'upper stop'..  Smiley

That car sure looks like a well built car to me.. and probably a good value at the asking price, given what I see others offered at..?

Thanks rszmjt,   makes sense to me...  especially with you pointing out the larger diameter hole, which I'd ignored......  Smiley

A classic muscle car *without* Radial TAs..  is a muscle car lacking something..  Smiley

pictured are the shims I removed from my upper control arm attachments.   The ones on the left are thin (1/16") and the others on the right and stacked up are 1/8" as I recall).    Are the ones without the top tab original? or were they added by alignment shops in subsequent years?

Attached below is a photo of the factory paint on my rockers showing what has been stated about the rocker paint...

that engine compartment looks a lot 'newer' than 1988 fresh....?   Looks like it would be a good car to take 'vintage racing'..  Smiley ..  for some fun!
1574  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 YH Wheels on: April 06, 2013, 11:12:42 AM
Here is an ebay link to a pair of supposed 'YH' rims, which to me appear to be very late (after 1969 wheels - one appears to have a '4' yr code).  Notice that the year portion of the codes do not show well in the photos, nor does the ad point that out the full code, even in response to a specific question, they only provide 'month' and 'day' code, and ignore the YR code.   Regular ebay sellers seem to know all the tricks (to fool people)....?

1575  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 YH Wheels on: April 06, 2013, 11:05:22 AM
so what you are saying is that very late '69 Z28 wheels and the 1970 Monte Carlo (and maybe full size chevrolet? wheels, made after 9/69 and into the '1970 calendar year) had different cooling slots which are noticeable, or at least detectable?   Are the late '69/70 YH wheels different then only in the minor offset from the later MC FW wheels?  I think I have a loose YH and a FW without tires, so I may get them down, clean them up and make some photos and measurements.  I Like these discussions that make us a little bit smarter about our favorite cars..
