If your going to do it yourself, be careful on the press, you can easily crack the pump housing. I practiced on a few old worthless pumps and was surprised how quick you could screw up and crack the housing. If it's a rare hard to find or original pump, might want to send it to the pro's.

From the ad:

" The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but they are the OEM pieces."

I wouldn't have taken that as meaning Original seat covers. Agree, maybe they should have been clearer, but from a Dealer, I would never expect that. 

If we are going to bring up the stellar reputation of RK I feel I should give my input.

 Great car but not orig. seat covers as stated in their ad. They bought the car from a good friend on mine and he told them he had the seat covers made for him at great cost yet they sold it as orig. seat covers. They were even reminded of it when they were selling it. They might be great guys but that type of sales tactic does not instill trust.

The first tag looks fake, but I'm not as good as most on this site. Maybe Kurt will give his opinion.

Went to 3,550, which is a fair price. I don't think you'll see much higher than that, unless the original car would show up.  Anyone else buying it would probably value it like you stated above " But it's not original" 

If someone pays $8000 for it, I'm betting they are in the re-stamp mode.   Sad

I didn't call, but nothing on their website.

I've installed 3 Vintage Air Systems, 2 on 1st Gen Camaros and 1 on a 66 Chevelle, and they work excellent. I did use the March Serp pulley system on all 3. On all there cars, I ran everything behind the fender, makes for a very clean look.

Give Frank a call at Prodigy Customs; he can help with the details for the install, he has several tips and tricks, and excellent prices and customer service.

x2 on Bob Harris. I just got my 4 leafs for my Z28 and they are exactly as my originals, very satisfied.

Thanks Joe.

So now.....Anybody making them?
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 Camaro Passenger Assist Handle (Grab Bar) on: September 02, 2012, 10:01:24 AM
Does anyone know if the bezels used on the 68 Grab handle, on the dash is interchangeable with those from the 69? I have my originals, but would probably spend a week moving boxes to get to them. If not, anybody making the 68's (I haven't see any)?

Thanks,
Paul

Too bad they won't correct it, looks like they would have some immediate sells.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Repo Radiator Tag 68 Z28 on: August 19, 2012, 05:30:52 AM
Has anyone started making a correct radiator tag for 68 Z28? I have my original Radiator, but somewhere in it's life the tag was removed (can still see where it was).
Still looks like they are incorrect.
Thanks,
Paul
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: DSE solid subframe mounts - stock bolts too short ! on: August 18, 2012, 09:06:42 AM
Being that this is the restoration section, it may be more appropriate in the "mild modification" section, but in my opinion, the benefit of the solids is the tighter frame, especially when combined with frame connectors.  Another good site is Team Camaro, there are lots of posts on the pro's and con's of solids. Again, my opinion, made a huge difference in the handling of my car, but would never use them on my original Z28.

What's the purpose or benefit of solid bushings? Not trying to side track the thread just curious.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Source for Z28 water pump? on: August 17, 2012, 06:31:58 PM
Jason,

For the record, my pump does not have the bushing. I have to agree with Chick, I  would think a judge would take points for the bushing.

Paul

Thanks for the responses fellas.  Paul, that link was interesting hadn't come across it.  That the factory might have issued the car with a reducer bushing, means I can too.  I have Jerry's book but didn't see that mentioned, will have to look again.
