3946841 is the original GM part number.  You can Google it, search it on ebay, or find it in Chevrolet parts manuals from back in the day for more detail.

Repro door skins can be made of thinner metal.  They give a lot when you pull on the door handle.  Keep and patch original doors when ever possible IMHO.

Those look like real parts to me.  2 sets pf pink rods? 

Lots of money for a partial core but maybe thats what they go for these days?

In case it matters....1970 Camaros are either 1970 or 1970 and 1/2......Early '70 is a carryover of '69.  ;~D

8-track tape player only?

Just a random thought.  No antenna needed.

Ground straps or not?

Comp plus rods are lighter in weight than GM OEM rods.  They worked fine in many cars for many years.

None of the Hurst parts are easy to drill. Very hard stuff.

OEM repro mounts like the original and uses a GM style mounting plate.  Looks like it may use the aftermarket style bushings at the ends of the rods but who knows.  No rubber ones in pictures so that is probably good.  They were not great.

The aftermarket Comp plus now uses a multi piece mounting plate.  The Comp plus from back in the day actually reused the existing GM mounting plate where most all other applications used a provided generic Hurst mounting plate. 

They are both probably good pieces.

The 78-82 Corvette isn't worth very much even when it is fully restored.  Cost to finish the car will easily exceed the value of the finished vehicle.  Good values? - YES!  Good to restore from a financial standpoint? -  No way. The value of those years of Corvette have been flat or decreasing for a long time.  Nice ones are out there just waiting for buyers and nobody is even kicking the tires.

If the adjustment is good, the parts are suspect. 

Mix and match with other years will cause this. Wrong levers will bolt up, but not be tight enough fit causing the problem.  Throw will be off too.  1 gear still partially engaged while you are trying to get to the next one will block you.

Anybody else think they look a little heavy on the strike?

Assembly/date code font does not look real good to me.

I would be looking hard at your shifter assembly.  Specifically the adjustment method used, and checking for the proper parts for the assembly.

How did you adjust it?

The floating pins are there for ease of assembly and disassembly only.  No need for a fixture or a torch with floating pins and it saves the rod from being stressed repeatedly.  The pins do not sound different or change the performance in any measurable way.  If you plan on tearing down your engine regularly to replace pistons after every race event, or you just want to do the assembly yourself in a hobby garage then floating pins make sense.  Otherwise pressed pins are fine.
