Has anybody used Steering Wheel Bob up in New Jersey for wheel restoration? His name is Bob Monetti and the pics on his website look outstanding.

Thanks a lot guys.  My car is '69 SS L-48 with Z-23 interior.  My seats are excellent and the console is  good with minor scuff marks. The dash pad is solid but the front of it is sorta peeled up and I don't know if a repair is possible. The carpet is OK but it is unraveled around the edges and sorta nappy.  My other concern is the steering wheel and door panels. The panels could be made to look better but it wouldn't be right. The steering wheel is shot and I can't find a steering wheel shroud with cherrywood inlay and can't find the inlay for sale to put on a new one. The package tray is also shot.

Thanks for suggestions

Part of my interior is great. Some needs replacing. My question is; Do I replace only the bad pieces or replace all of it.  Some armchair advice says replace all of it because the new pieces will not match in color from fading of the older parts. Some say to keep all that I can use from original parts. I am not a Rockerfeller but money is no object on this car.  I am doing this one time and one time only because my race is about run.

I am not sure but I think you are talking about body side molding in the middle of the door and  has two small pieces on each end with one on the fender and one on the quarter. If this is it they are add on after market with rivets in the center to hold it on the car and the insert pushes into the guides.

Jim the assembly manual on page 99  U6 shows a clip for the distributor. Maybe that's it and a short hose goes to it.
 I'll look for a long hose and see if I can find it.  Hope this helps

Pretty nice find Rich.  It should make you a real nice car since it's not rusted all to pieces.  She must have played for the Yankees or would it be the A's since I don't know what coast your on. LOL

If you're a big fan of Blue, back in late 70's early 80's  Corvette had a extremely lite Blue. I think it was sky Blue but don't quote me on that. Anyway girlfriend had one and it looked good IMO with darker Blue interior.

This car was built first week of July not December.

Thats asking way too much. NO shifter. One thing that will make this more easy and simple. Go to your local NAPA or big name parts house and buy an engine leveler. It goes on the chain on the lift and you can balance the engine by yourself. It actually tilts the engine for you and with a twist of the handle you can raise or lower the end of the transmission as you drop it in. One man operation if necessary.

Yes very easy and my personal prefered way.

Thanks for all the help. Now I can put this puppy to bed.

Thanks Mark, Now 1 more question and I won't bother you again with this.  Why does it list both brake options? 
1185  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: I need help with X 55 numbers and little steel plate from the glove box on: January 09, 2010, 08:51:58 PM
First off I need to apologize to everyone for going off like I did.  It was kinda hard for me to understand what I did wrong to get that attention.  Now back to the topic. The POP said my M20 was built the 24 of July. My cowl plate has an 07 A  build date.  Is that right?  Also on my POP where the options for the radio and brakes are off. The first number is in row B not row A. This is exactly how it  is laid out.
  B  M   0  6  3  0   G   for the transmission but here is where it gets weird for the radio and brakes
      1   3  3   with the A position blank.  The way I decode it is  1=J52  3=  any radio  3 =J52  according to the CRG report on POPs
