I wasnt directing it to anyone because I know we all enjoy talking about these things and I dont want to see these types having an edge.

Before this goes further lets make sure we are not giving the "fakers" clues as to how they can better their craft.. Wink

Thanks man.  Its been a few years since I have ported a set of heads and those took me several weeks off and on and those were newer LS heads and of course were aluminum..  Little more progress from over the weekend. Slow going due to a small compressor. I think its time to bring ole green (60's Kellogg compressor) out of retirement.. Still roughing everything in little by little. Once I get the entire head roughed then Ill go back and finish out every port.

Did anyone post on here about it before hand?

I thought you, Satch and Billy probably went to Bowling Green - otherwise I would have called you when I didn't see you there. Show kinda slid in and slid out -

Nah I was home in the garage all day grinding on some heads.  No biggie.

After about 4hrs I can see a little progress. Unfortunately, I cracked the collet on my air grinder tonight so I wont get much else done tonight.. Im guessing Ill have at least 40hrs in these heads. Here is a comparison shot of 2 of the intake runners that are untouched vs 2 that are roughed in.  Hope to get a little more finished this weekend.

The only emblem on a R/S Z that wouldnt be "Z/28" would be "rally-sport" on the sides of the fenders.  Normally where the Camaro script would be.  Grille front edge of fenders and tail panel are "Z/28"

What about in the situation of the door decal stripe of the D90?

I certainly do not think it needs to be an exact copy of the NCRS...  My comment was referring to the forum.

1 &2) Yes trim & bolts need to be removed and the line will almost split the spear bracket screw holes.

3) Depends.  If the car was from NOR then will probably will not see as much overspray on the underside of the car due to it being just a few feet off the ground and truthfully the fenders would come off as well to do the spray on the lower cowl or tulip panel area as seen in James' photo.

    If it was built in LOS then you would have more (or should I say potentially see more) overspray due to it being held from an overhead conveyor system.

Also remember that the subframe, brake lines, etc would not have been there when this was painted.  If I were doing this I would tape off on the inside weld seam lip and spray that area.  Removing fenders to get that area covered would be up to the individual.


Someone please correct me if I am wrong.  Smiley

so it seems to me they threaten law suits because somebody speaks their mind ? won`t correct a judging guide that has been wrong for a decade ? then close down the documentation service that makes them money ? it sure does seem like some big ego`s clashing and not playing nice. kind of like school yard bullies. i guess charging 50.00 just to see where a car was sold new they maybe should keep it going. lets see, 200,000 plus camaros, now add how ever many nova`s and chevelles that adds up to alot of coin. interesting to see where this goes. great read by the way, thanks for posting the link.

Eldon - not defending NCRS here for sure but before you put to much stock in what you read from the whiners, you should try and find an organization that has done a better job of promoting restoration in the car hobby world. The recent actions by the current directors are not reflective of how the organization got where it is.

I'm a member of the NCRS and as Roy (thank you Roy for your NCRS service over the many years) stated "find an organization that has done a better job of promoting restoration". I've said many times I wish we in this great Camaro hobby had an organization that was similar and had a guideline for restoration.



The funny thing is we have most if not all the pieces of the puzzle right here they just need to be put together.   Wink
