I noticed this cars build week was the same as my Z and his body number was 80 different.  I contacted him and the vin on this car is 3 from mine.  Kind of neat

I need to redo mine sometime.  I used the cold gun blue and it is now a brown color.  I am not sure what went wrong but it never looked right.  Maybe I had the flash rust problem Janobyte mentioned

Cool exterior color, too bad someone changed the interior.  I may not be a huge blue interior guy but that white would be a night mare to keep clean

I had the owner of the local detail shop, that does apply ceramic coatings tell me to try Jescar power lock plus.  It goes on nice, comes off  nice and seems to keep the car looking clean after a rain.  I used it on my new Tahoe and looks great.  Its a polymer sealant.  He told me they liked the results and does not cost $1000.  I am pretty sure at the time, thats what they charged and had your car at least a day for what they were using.

I had one of the "CORRECT" looking ones and after 4 years it is so hard I threw it away and went to napa.  My correct heater hoses were junk too. Looked like antifreeze trying to seep out of them.  I did buy another repop set of them but the rubber in this stuff seems to be junk.  I bet theres on 250 miles on this stuff in 4 years
Back to the hoses, I think there was a post that the originals did not have ink stampings??

My drivers side has a lot nicer welds.  Some of the slag was not even knocked off

Better shot.  Its interesting,  the welds on one side of this frame is a lot better than other side

I found a small lime green drop of paint on the top side but not sure where it came from.  That is all I found.  The wax substance was on so good it might have taken anything else off. Sad thing is, its all over the bottom of the car.  I might rent a steam power washer the next time if I can find one

I am working on a 68 and the subframe and bottom of the car is coated in a waxy substance from the late 70s. Maybe ziebart? 
I tried the hot water power washer today and it took most of it and the paint off and found this under the paint.  Could be a H. 
Nothing too exciting but interesting

I have a spare 954 and the 9 and 5 are different.

I had a set of latex from HBC and a set from camaro specialties.  One set the end tore off, and the set on the car are junk. I cant remember which set was which but neither were good

The original I have is swelled up pretty bad where the different layers come together.  Too bad they didnt make a drain in them where this happens. 
Not much on the car will be stock but wanted the front to fit right.

Restoration / Aftermarket core support

Hi Guys.
Anyone used an aftermarket core support that fit right?  I am working on a 68 and have a replacement but it is like 2 pounds lighter than a stock one and you can grab the top and flex it with your hand.  The stock one I ran across is pretty swelled up around the bushing holes to want to fix it
