I also used the sharkhide on my drag ling, tie rods, ball joints, driveshaft, u joints, clutch fork and bell crank assembly, hood hinges, and hood latch assembly parts that were phosphate.  Thanks Scoop

I have used several different ones. I used Rust Prevention Magic on all my phosphate bolts prior to assembly. On my coil springs and rear leaf springs I used Sharkhide. It goes on like lacquer thinner and leaves a non dust collecting clear coating that soaks into the metal and leaves a natural look. I have several pictures posted on the CRG with these parts coated with sharkhide. Do a search for posts under my name and they should show up. If they do not show up send me an email and I will send you some.  Thanks, Scoop

I purchased my new glass from PS Auto Glass. I laid the new glass on top of the original and it is a perfect match.  They will also date code it with the correct LOF information if you want.  Scoop

Yes I sent in the metal tops. I cannot find my receipt right now but they will give you a price over the phone. I am sending pictures to show they have the correct staples and the correct chamfered edging on the ribbing in the door panel designs. The PUI and other brands I looked at all had rounded edges on the designs in the panels.  If you need any other info let me know.  Good Luck.  Scoop

I am posting this picture for  "sbmiano". He is having trouble posting it. He found this picture of a tag on the passenger rear quarter of his 1969 Z/28 LOS car during restoration and wants to know if anyone knows what it is.  Thanks, Scoop

The picture I posted was from a restored car which is what Scott has.  I am posting a picture of a survivor car from the Nationals from last year also. I know the factory did not paint them all the same as they were done by hand and by different operators etc.  Just trying to let Scott know how they are judging at the Nationals where he will be going back to.  Scoop

Scott  Here is a picture of a car at the Nationals last year that was judged to be correct..Scoop
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: trunk latch on 69 z on: August 21, 2013, 08:42:22 PM
Scott  Here is a picture of one judged at the Nationals last year and was judged to be correct. I know there are many variations of the trunk spatter but this would be an easy fix for you as you would only need to paint your latch and not have to touch up the spatter.   Scoop

I too had a great time at the Nationals. David your car is awesome. It was nice talking to you again this year, along with Chick, Dale all the friends I have made at the Nationals the last three years. I look forward to the Nationals all year. The judges are great and very helpful with any questions.   Scoop

I will be attending also for the third year now. I am in the process of finishing my 68 Z28 and have learned a great deal and gained a lot of respect for all the judges. This show is the highlight of my year.  Thanks to you and all associated with this event.

Thanks for linking this post for me.  You can buy Sharkhide from Eastwood. If you treat your sandblasted front springs They will turn a little darker. I would try it. If you do not like it all you have to do is wipe it off with lacquer thinner.  Thanks, Scoop

The drag link should be a blued steel. You can get it by using a good gun blue. I used gun blue on mine and treated it with sharkhide.  I also finished my idler arm and drive shaft with sharkhide. The main mounting shaft for the idler arm should have the sameblue finish, the rest of the idler arm is natural steel.. I am sending a picture.
