Not sure why my link goes black when I post it, I will give it another shot.

good point, wonder how many camaros they made during those two weeks? Also wonder what the first and last documented Z10 serial numbers are.  No real reason to know except its fun to see where mine fits in with the others.  Hope one day we can get a list of all the known cars so we can compare, most likely have to leave serial numbers off since some prefer to keep that private.

350, auto on the column, no console.  A/C, PS. PB, Black deluxe interior.  No idea what radio it came with but the dash was not cut or the rear package tray area, still virgin!   My car came with the original motor but no trans so I am converting to a 4 speed, maybe a 6 speed if I like it after I do my 68 with one.  I am going to keep all a/t parts but a manual is going in.  That makes 3 Z10's within 50 cars, wonder how many others are near ours.

Kris, our cars are only 12 apart.  might have sat next to each other when new!

This car was built within 40 cars of my Z10.   Sounds similar to mine also, non original motor though.

Some of the brake lines have the wire surrounding them, I would think this would need blasted.  I did blast some of my emergency brake cable and it came out looking good, maybe not the way it left the factory but looks fresh to me.  Just trying to keep my original parts and not replace good stuff with china crap.

Trying to use every original part that I can, they are in great shape just dull.  Its amazing how many metal lines are under these cars, plus I have the dual fuel line Quadrajet.  Wondering if anyone has used glass beads or something similar thats not so abrasive.  I will have to look up some prices on brake line and fuel line kits.

I am getting ready to install my original brake and fuel lines under my car but they are dull and some surface rust.  Is there any way to bring these to life?  Blasting? chemical washing? paint type product?  an illegal with a tooth brush?  I have used the search option but everything addresses the bolts and mounting clips, the mounting clips were really blue from the factory?

My gut feeling is to blast them with some type of media that will not "cut" them but more polish. 
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct subframe bolts on: April 26, 2010, 07:33:31 PM
I just bought a kit with all the bolts and body mounts.  It came with incorrect bolts but the body bolts were slightly larger than the core support bolts.  Not sure if this is how the factory did it.  The car was tore down 17 years ago so I have no idea what came off.  By the way, the kit came with six mounting bushings, two of each size.  So there are 3 different types for the subframe and core support.  I used the bolts that came with the kit and figure I can easily replace with originals if I can find them.

Wow, sounds like a great car!  And you have owned it since 76?, how did you keep from diving it all this time?  Ya, we all did things to cars in the past that make us groan now but I know what you mean, I have a huge soft spot for cars that have survived time with original paint.  I would MUCH rather drive a car that no one has touched than a perfect restored one.  just me.  That being said, I just started a nut and bolt ground up.  Go figure. 

If you do some research you can figure out how to post.  I started a photo bucket account and now can post a link when ever I want.  We would all love to see your car.  We have similar cars but yours is a floor shift with a console and mine was a column shift and mine has air.  Today I got the subframe on and blasted the inner fenders, should have the front on in the next week.  Glad to hear from you, have you registered it with Kurt S yet. I think he has around 120 or so.

Have you ever used the Por 15?  wondering how it compares to the epoxy primers.  Everything I used the Por on is solid as a rock, I used the lower sheen chassis black over the shinier primer stuff.  Do you put the epoxy primer straight on the bare metal or use an etching primer on the body panels first?

712 is deluxe black interior I think, not sure how many they made with this combo.  Jacmac, what can you tell us about your Z10?   Start a new post with some pics so we can follow your build,  I am sure we are curious what everyone has.

I sandblasted the inner fenders, trans cross member, windshield mechanism, headlight mechanism and a few other pieces today.  Gonna rain here in Arizona so I needed to clean up my homemade blast booth so the sand stays dry.  The body is blasted, primed and undercoated in the trunk and interior floor.  Bottom of car is primed and finished with Por 15 chassis black.  Subframe is painted, all bushing, ball joints, etc. installed and ready to assemble, should have it rolling with in a week or two.   Cars ready to go for paint but my buddy had a 62 thunderbird coil spring pin his hand so there will be a slight set back.  ahh, the adventures of a gear head...

I ended up sandblasting everything and used POR 15 chassis paint for the subframe and A arms.  They turned out amazing, hard as powdercoat but flowed out like paint.  Perfect.  I used Por 15 under the car, firewall, interior and trunk since my car had set outside for 17 years, no rot but I wanted to convert any rust I could not get with the sandblaster.  The car looks new.  I posted pics under the Z10 section.
