Been watching ebay for the correct date code for my z.  Today one appears that i haven't seen before, date of 0921. Stamp looks fat but never seen one with the 0 before the   9.   never seen a 21 either. Something fishy?

My fan has a tight spot in it. Anyone try and get their originals rebuilt? I looked to replace it and the new ones don't look right. Original looks like its riveted together

I don't think i have seen this in person. Is it a cross between tan and gold? Metallic? Found a base car that was champagne and now another color.  I like to see the original color on a car just not sure about thus one

« on: December 10, 2012, 06:20:14 PM »
Didn't have any luck searching for this. What color should this bracket that holds the booster hose on the intake be? Mine is bare, Jerrys book says natural or silver cadium dichromate. If mine was plated its gone

Restoration / subframe gloss and eastwood satin
« on: October 08, 2012, 02:48:46 AM »
Eastwood  calls their satin 2k chassis paint 60-70% gloss. The gloss a 80. Jerrys book said 30% for subframe, floors and core support. Anyone used Eastwood satin and is it too much? I can get ppg also. Thanks  for the input

Originality / 1969 Z28 white cowl
« on: October 08, 2012, 01:06:15 AM »
Had several requests for pictures of my white cowl.  I pulled the cover off and it is really painted nice underneath. I just noticed it looks like the start of one of the stripes at the top. Someone painted the firewall with a brush so the line from the black to the white isnt acurate

Originality / markings on fender extensions

Trying this again, posting pictures seems to cause me problems

I found both of my fender extensions marked like this. Letters are upside down about 4 inches tall. anyone else seen this?

Originality / 1969 Z valve cover picture, open element air cleaner
« on: September 26, 2012, 03:02:52 PM »
Anyone have an original z with the open element air cleaner that could post a picture of the passenger side? I would like to see how your hose comes off the valve cover and into the base of the air cleaner. I saw a old road test picture where the hose is on different than mine and trying to figure it out. I have two air cleaner bases, the original and a repop, and the repop doesnt fit right. Tube is welded too far up in it.

Restoration / 69 brake calipers
« on: September 07, 2012, 08:37:42 PM »
My z has some problems with the front calipers. The mechanic helping me is concerned the pistons are pretty rusty. I am wondering, can someone rebuild these with new pistons? I have seen kits but with no pistons.  My buddy has a set of calipers off a 69 or 70 chevelle and the pistons measure just over 2.75 inches in diameter. Would these work? we put mine back on and didnt measure them.
also,  does anyone stainless steel sleeve these like corvettes?
