Originality / markings on fender extensions
« on: October 08, 2012, 12:42:15 AM »
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?

Today pulled the subframe out from under my car. Glad I did. After getting the fenders off, it really needed attention behind them at the base of the firewall and under the door hinges. It would have been going down hill to have gotten it damp in these areas. The car has come apart nice except some of the bolts where the wheel well mouldings where bolted to the inner and outer fenders. There are places on the car that are as perfect as you could want, like the bottom of the firewall into the tunnel, looks like new. I have pictures I should post but will need to put them in my computer and downsize enough.

I saw the car about 3 weeks ago. Owned by the guy who has right stuff detailing. I thought the front might sit a little high and probably has some repro parts on it. Didn't look real close

I got a set from Steve along with shackles and they were so clean i could have put right on the car. Good guy

My car is a month later and has at least that much over spray under the passenger side, which is the heavier side on the Ebay car.  Mine is pretty covered on that side.  Would love to see it in person. It sure has alot of gloss. I think engine is too shiney too. Wondered if the shocks are touched up, i didn't see any chips. Some people have different opinions on survivor.

Originality / 1969 Z valve cover picture, open element air cleaner

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.

Lcmc you need that so i can come look. Great car.

I have used the griots products and the bigger orbital and it does a nice job. On my acura it made it look like it was just painted. Shined up some of our tractors and semis too. alot of work but sure looks nice. No way to burn thru paint with it either

I need to correct my numbers, the 6312 was the one that made it sit too high not the 6320. The 6312 is the longest and highest load rate of the 3.

I had a friend tell me to soak the inside with wd-40 and tap them with a rubber mallet. Sounded crazy but it worked

I just went thru something similar. My car is a non rs z. Heartbeat city sent me coils for a small block non ac car. Which they recommended.  It sat like 3 inches too high. Google pozzi racing and he has a chart with moog numbers. I ordered new ones from summit and they were were here the next day. I used the 6308 set. Now it sits with the molding in the front wheel well about at the top of the tire.  Looks good. I believe the wrong set from hbc were 6320. I think 6312 is a spring that will  sit a half inch higher than the 6308

Great pictures.
Napa does have pistons and the guy said it was used for a while, maybe into the 80's

Thanks guys for all the info. I had a hose go bad too. Weird deal until we found no fluid coming out hose. I will check with napa. Sometimes they still have basic parts and i forget to check there. I think my bores were ok, just rusty pistons.

69 has one piston, earlier used 2. I was browsing the classic industries catalog and they have pistons. Not sure which one is right but its a start!
