Restoration / Polishing glass
« on: February 24, 2014, 11:34:56 PM »
I have my windshield out and you can see where the wipers ran in the right light.
Anyone have experience cleaning this up or should I be looking at one of the new date coded glass.  Can you tell the new glass isn't correct and how bad does this hurt the car?
Thanks guys

Restoration / Disassembly of brake booster

Anyone ever taken a brake booster apart? Didn't find anything with a search. Thought I better ask before I destroy something! Any tricks to it?

General Discussion / Mecum z28
« on: December 10, 2013, 02:13:40 AM »
Just had to vent. TV announcers said a real z28 up next on Saturday afternoon. Of course it's black. They said again a real z28 but now has a 350. Also had non power brakes and big block heater box!

Restoration / dash pad
« on: December 07, 2013, 10:35:59 PM »
I am not real crazy about my dash pad. It appears pretty wavey along the bottom side in front of the passenger seat. The side along windshield has seperated in a couple places. The warpage is my biggest concern. I would like to keep a gm dash pad in it but are most going to have this problem? Is it heat/sun related or can this happen with nos ones? My car may have sat out in its life.

Decoding/Numbers / rear sway bar?
« on: September 08, 2013, 01:57:15 AM »
Just watched the JL8 car sell at mecum. Mentioned the rear sway bar. Was this an over the counter part for racing? I have never heard of it. Announcers said it was a jl8 car. But looked like added on stuff.

Anyone catch the 69 z on pawn stars last night? I thought I saw an ac compressor but out there you may need it..

Originality / hugger orange z with green interior
« on: July 13, 2013, 01:25:02 AM »
I never figured I would see this but a california built 69 Z in hugger orange with green interior! Not good. When I get home I will try and post couple pics. Saw the tag too. How odd is this

Originality / z28 with white stripes, cowl pics on early 69 cars
« on: June 18, 2013, 12:48:10 PM »
I am getting ready to get my car painted. Someone took a brush and painted the firewall, inner fenders, radiator shround (you get the idea) black.  I do not have a way to tell how far down the white that was sprayed under the cowl went. Right now it appears they raised where the black went up to the white on the cowl. I wonder if there could be burgandy between the white and black. I tried to wet sand and not much luck.  Here is a picture and would like to see others to compare how to finish mine. Leaving it white would look cleaner but I am thinking there could be some burgandy in there too. From the picture there couldnt be much burgandy if any. Thanks guys

Restoration / sway bar bushings 69 Z
« on: May 18, 2013, 03:13:42 PM »
I got 2 different sets of sway bar bushings from hbc and don't like either. My 03D has the fingered bracket. First I got the hole acts like at least 23/32 and I will have to trim since its too tall. The other is for the earlier bracket and not close. I am hoping to find something closer than these. Who knows these could be Moogs not sure. Anyone find any they liked?

Originality / evaporust on axles
« on: May 02, 2013, 04:33:00 PM »
Had some crude on end of a me shafts and sat the hub end in evaporust for a day. Rinsed them off and found a big blue paint dawb on the edge of the hub. Runs from one stud to the next. Evaporust is neat stuff

Originality / 1969 z28 rear brake backing plates
« on: April 21, 2013, 02:08:28 AM »
Haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.
I noticed on eBay plugs for an adjuster hole on the backing plate. I got some parts from HBC and the plugs were included. My backing plates don't have a hole for them?
Also not sure what they are called but the arms,levers that are involved with the parking brake seem to be plated with the parts dealers. Mine show no signs of gold after cleaning with evaporust. We're they bare metal?

Originality / color of front leaf spring bracket?
« on: April 14, 2013, 12:38:01 PM »
I searched and couldn't come up with anything. Should the front mounting bracket be axle gloss or was it painted with the bottom of the body?

Restoration / what engine motor mount did you use on z28
« on: April 01, 2013, 02:58:08 AM »
Getting parts ready to install engine and noticed the mounts on engine were the original non locking ones. One had a crack in rubber so I figured to get a new set. Is it a good idea to switch to the locking ones? I think the wider one was the cracked one.

Originality / 12 bolt cover
« on: March 26, 2013, 01:12:56 PM »
I have noticed some covers have a notch out of one side. Even seen them called nos. My original doesn't have the notch. Where did the notched ones come from? Are the repops accurate?

Originality / z28 front backing plate and steering bracket bolt finish
« on: February 24, 2013, 02:52:52 PM »
Does anyone know how the bolts that hold the s shaped steering arm to the spindle and the short fat  bolt that holds the backing plate to the spindle should be finished? Saw a picture that has me doubting what I did
Thank you
