211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct 69 Z/28 Coil Springs on: May 12, 2013, 11:27:45 AM
I had a set of small block springs from HBC and the car sat almost as high as it does with the motor out. I looked up david pozzi's site and it has alot of good info with moog part numbers.  If your doing a z, they sat lower than a small block car.

My car has 12800 on it but drag racer/first owner messed with somethings. I have found neat inspection marks . This week I had the rear axle cover off and it had a lot of blue paint markings. Springs were a greenish yellow. I think a lot of my bolts are original but some hard to read. I have wondered if my car was stored someplace damp and if the guy was on stone roads. He's around but I have only talked to his son and he doesn't have a lot of info.

Poly bushings have been known to squeak. Would be a lot of work to change them out.
I agree on paint, matching numbers should be the correct color. I wouldn't buy a car in a color I didn't like matching numbers or not anyway

Any of these these ever appear or did they meet the crusher?
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / evaporust on axles on: May 02, 2013, 11:33:00 AM
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
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 z28 rear brake backing plates on: April 21, 2013, 11:23:12 AM
Thanks Gary. Our springs are the same color. What gets me, I have some parts from hbc and springs are not the same color. I got wheel cylinders and knew they weren't delco but the 2 they sent don't match each other! Mine are fine inside and rebuilding them. I got a rebuild kit from ricks and their pictures look like the one they use for front matches my rears. Guy said sometimes the pics are wrong. What I got is like the picture, no rubber ends on springs. Very annoying. These places should know. I think the white number on my adjusters is 384. Wonder what that means. You can't mess with number it wants to come right off.

Thank you. My drums had never been off and welded themselves go the hub. I heard you could back them off but no hole .
218  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 z28 rear brake backing plates on: April 20, 2013, 09:08:28 PM
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?
219  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 15, 2013, 04:56:34 PM
I have a 954 and been looking almost a year for a late January/ February.  Tough to find and not paying 1500!
220  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: color of front leaf spring bracket? on: April 14, 2013, 05:04:05 PM
Thanks John
Was going to get my axle assembled and hope to get it under the car this week and found those with no paint on them!! too many parts here I guess. 
221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 grill and tailpanel emblem question. on: April 14, 2013, 09:07:39 AM
One of my fronts is a dark grey instead of silver but the same part number. Weird stuff
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 grill and tailpanel emblem question. on: April 14, 2013, 08:17:28 AM
Jerry's book shows 3958642 as the front. His rear number is 8701333 which is on a box I have but emblem is different
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 grill and tailpanel emblem question. on: April 14, 2013, 08:02:41 AM
I have my originals off. 8745869 is the rear. I have my original front and some reason 2 spares. I don't find a part number in any of them. The boxes of the 2 nos ones i have are
3958642. Odd thing is, box for back 1 has different part number than the emblem. Maybe it came with nuts?
The front emblem has studs that are close to 2 inches long and has tabs on the z and 8 to fit into grill
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / color of front leaf spring bracket? on: April 14, 2013, 07:38:01 AM
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?
Thanks
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Control Arm Alignment Shims on: April 02, 2013, 09:12:20 PM
Mine look like the bottom one. If you clean it up, it should have a stamp on it that looks like arocket. I didn't look close enough but there might be something in the middle of the rocket
