16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / my day 3 Z/28 on: December 29, 2012, 06:30:49 PM
   Well.  My matching number DZ motor is on the stand freshened up and restored.   Last month i decided NOT to go 100% correct.   I found some NOS 15x4 cragar s/s wheels finally and have ordered the 15x10's for the rear.    Original 70914X 11A X77 car...  documented with 25,000 original miles. cortez silver cowl hood car.    I found a mint GM flat hood to cut a big hole in.    It should be in paint next week and am painting both hoods and putting the original cowl hood in the loft.    Custom 70's style street freak paint.   I'll post the paint pictures in the next few weeks.   be nice..... Smiley   Steve

19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / delco metallic drum brake shoes on: September 30, 2012, 06:00:26 PM
  hey guys...

    Maybe sombody can help me.  I bought my 69 z28 5 months ago as an unfinished project.  It had been in storage since 1974 !  the previous owner told me he installed ceramic pads and shoes years ago on the car.  (never used)   when i got the car home and removed the drums i saw shoes like i had never seen.
    the it had square pads as liners.  Odd to me.   They have slight surface rust due to the age but are stamped delco.     Were these ever installed in a factory car???
     thanks !   Steve

22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / help with correct 69 steering wheel on: September 22, 2012, 04:27:13 PM
   Hey guys...   When i bought my 69 z28 it had an aftermarket steering wheel and need to install the right one.    My car has the base black interior.
       Wood trim around the wiper and headswitch light area and wood trim on the radio.   No wood trim on ash tray door or glove box area.    It also has no passenger side grab handle over the glove box.     I'm guessing (and wanting) it came with either the standard or wood wheel.     If I install the standard wheel will the horn shroud have woodgrain or just plain black?      thanks !       Steve

27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Poor quality reproduction crap.... on: July 29, 2012, 05:50:30 AM
i agree.   seems like 10 years ago Ricks always had everthing and would give you the choice on repop parts such as ... NOS, show quality or standard reproduction.
It was your choice.       Now they have been bought out and the company well..... Tongue not so good in my opinion.   My personal car has next to NO repop parts.
           I see cars at shows that look like an import version of a 69 camaro due to the quality of the parts they used on the resto.     More times than not they never fit right and alot of times wont even work !    I'll pay 4X the price for nos but at least I know my car is right.     Just venting...  my opinion.     Steve
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1111480 Distributor Stamp Verification on: June 13, 2012, 05:31:47 AM
my opinion....   It looks like it was a 1111481 and they changed it to 480.
