If you are in the description he states he has tags & title for both a Firebird & Camaro.  That is why I say a potential rebody.

Darrell,

That broken spring would bother me, esp if you have a high lift cam installed...  Are you close to 'spring bind'??
PS.  The car looks great.  I like the gray spokes...  Smiley

No it's not close to coil bind.  This engine still has the original L78 cam & springs. 



I know the topic of the tail paint has been discussed here before and I believe the consensus was the black paint used for the tail was the same for the lower rockers (where used) and the firewall. It makes sense because I doubt GM would have a special gloss just for the tail blackout. If you were to take a guess (unless you know for sure) at what gloss level would you say yours is?

Mike

I can't say with 100% but I would guess 70-80% gloss.  You have to realize that in my case the tail panel hasn't any type of protectant applied in over 20 years.  Just a wash every now & then.

Since I can't added pics correctly the first time..  






& yes Mike that is what I am stating & my belief.
Car at less than a month old.

and thought I would wash wax finish up any tuneup issues that were left from the previous weekend.  So Im almost finished and I keep hearing a little chatter under the valve cover.  I pull the cover to adjust the valves and get to #7 intake and see what looks like a weak spring.  I pull off the keepers to discover this.





Luckily it didnt drop a valve because I would have been sick..  But got it replaced with a spare I had and everything is back to normal.  Not sure I like the wheels on the car..  Cragars are definitely the leading candidate at this point.







Also a pic of the tailpan after waxing.  I have to retract my first belief of them being semi or satin black.
