Mild Modifications / Re: 69 Z-28 Tire Size
« on: July 24, 2012, 12:04:40 AM »
I just got the 215/65s. Alot of the  sizes were back ordered and the only 235 I found was the Coker version. My car doesn't have power steering and my buddy reminded me that fat tire might be harder to turn too

Restoration / Re: fw wheels abd trim rings

What came with the car has clips clear around the outside and where I think the correct ones have a corner, these are more curved going back to the center of the wheel. I might see if they have a part number

Originality / Radiator painting
« on: July 14, 2012, 03:13:29 PM »
It looks like my radiator probably needs a core. Normally they come back are look like they are dipped in something nasty!  Any special paint others have used or just plan on using the same on the radiator as what will be the same gloss under the hood?

Mild Modifications / shocks
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:55:54 AM »
I am going to have to change my front springs in my 69 Z and wondered if I should change the shocks. Car has mr gasket super drag shocks on the front and monro matics on the back.  Seen kyb and blistens that people liked, along with edelbrocks but jegs doesnt seem to have edlebrocks.
I wont do anything other than a little spirited driving, no racing.  Only person who drove my car was the original owner so the shocks on it have been there a while. I havent drove it enough to know if what I have are any good either

While cleaning my recent purchase, I found the tag still around the coil spring.
It was really  nice. I was wondering, should I take it off and put it in a scrapebook?

Restoration / keeping gas tank and brake lines nice
« on: July 01, 2012, 04:01:00 PM »
 Buddy of mine said he used a low sheen clear on his tank and lines to keep them from trying to corrode. I am getting a new gas tank and was curious if anyone here has tried it

My cousin has an engine shop and used to run a pro mod car. This is without seeing yours but he said he has repaired blocks like it. You might check around and see what's in your area.
