Today, I stopped by a national store chain called Michael's.  They had a product called Metallic Artist Tape and it come in a three color packet, (2) ea. Gold, Argent, and Black 1/8" wide 324" long...The company name is called the C-thru Ruler Company..www.cthruruler.com...This one was about $18.00...I'm thinking this one is not going to work all that well...It will have to be trimmed and that does not look to be too easy, even with a very sharp ex-zacto nife..

I also picked up an Testors Enamel pin marker, Argent in Color from my local hobby shop. This pin sold for about $5.00...

Here are three photos. The first photo showing the left side of the shroud is what it looked like before. The second one is with the outer right horn button done, and the last one is with half of it painted with the Argent color pin...I think I'm going with the pin and forget tryng to trim the chrome tape...A very nice touch-up...Thanks for the recommendations for these products...

I looked too and could not find anything..One of your comments led me to think about if the site Administrators would consider adding a section that could be  "Tricks of The Trade" or "The Watch Out"......This would be a great addition to the site where people could go an post or find out things that others have developed or run into for solving some stubborn problems..
Had I know this was painted I would have never attempted to clean it...

Man am I ticked off...I just bought and installed a new GM OER steering wheel shroud and the silver trim is coming off..Am I to assume that they came this was from the factory painted silver not coated somehow, or is this just what we are getting these days with OER parts....If I need to paint it what color and type of paint would you recommend for repainting the silver stripping on the shroud....

At the end of the day. I keep this thought in mind. Its really about showing classic cars to people that likes to journey back in time. Forgets about next month rent, car payments or just to show the kids what mom and dad use to drive back when...

Now when I walk through a car show I blow past some of the cars, but when one catches my eye, by the color, the chrome, the paint job or even a big As# blowers I stop and look. Why, because I appreciate the time and effort that goes into building any kind of car.

We all seem to choose a car to buy or build based on what our dad's had, the first one that caught our eye, or we just want to hold on to a part of history, a very special time with a very special person...What was her name ?  Hummmmm !!!!

To put things in prospective - There is an older guy that lives close to me with a 1970 or 1972 Nova...He drives the car to the shows and it looks like the miles that he has on the car. Its not detailed, and could use a good waxing...He knows he is never going to win the best of show...He goes to the shows to meet people and he enjoys a simple conversation. He is the real hero of why car shows can be fun. That is until we add in the competitive edge...

If you want to vote for any of these cars here is the link to vote - http://bestofthebest.superchevy.com...

Like the guy that was parted beside me said " we are not going to win this show, I've been to enough of these to know who's going to win...". I asked why is that ?...Its simple...That kind of car sell magazines and looks great on the cover of SCS...

Thanks, I could have not done this without all the encouragement from this site member and the recommendation to clean, clean, and then clean some more...It really paid off...

I would also like to thank a couple of strangers, a father and son team who actually went to the judges and said, "Hey you really have to look at this car. I have been and seen a lot of cars and this one needs to be in the Gold Class" , so I guess they listened...

So my lesson learned from this past w/e is that if the car presents its self well enough, then it will get the recognition it deserves. All I did was to drive Miss Daisy to the show the car show...

First off, thanks to everyone for their in put and advice in getting my car ready for its first SCS event...I just got back in from the  event at the Virgina Motorsports Park , just out side Petersburg Va.  I will post some pictures tomorrow night. There must have been 25 to 35 or more first generation, each day during the event....

The 1969 Z28 RS showed very well...On Saturday afternoon, I was asked to move my car to the Gold Class. Wow, man was I excited !!! I about whizzed in my shorts !!!! For those that don't know the SCS format this guarantees your car to be one of the top four cars and a chance to win the Best of Show !!!! )...The four Gold Classes are: Best Detailed, Best Paint, Best Interior, and Best Engine, and then the top award - the Best of Show... The top four cars were 1970 Chevelle SS, 1967 Corvette 427/437HP, 1969 Z28 Camaro and a customized 1969 Camaro silver with red interior. This car won the Best of Show....

On Saturday, only ten awards were given out. The 1969 Z28 RS won, one of the Editors Choice Top 10 Show Car awards out of at least 350 to 400 cars.

Today, the Camaro was presented with a Gold Award, and then the Camaro was presented with Gold Class Winner - Engine award.

Again thanks
Eddie

I did inquire as to what type of transmission it was, but the person that owned and restored the car never checked or seemed to care...I'm going with the M-21 since I don't want to remove the side cover...

Thanks for the help...

I thought the last letter was to tell the type A= M=20, B=M21 and C=M22...Is this not correct...
I'm thinking M-21 as well....

Marty,
Reggie, responded to me tonight..Thanks for the contact..As everyone has stated he confirmed clean, clean, clean, and when you think its clean enough, clean it again.

We'll see this coming w/e..If interest, I'll let you know how we do once we get back from the SC event...
Regards,
