Think I met that guy Rich ( he's at every show) about 20 years ago when I liked shows, swear to god told him the same thing. Funny he don't show up on the other side of the tracks(drag strip) Wink   Which reminds me ,appeared every 68 z was sold in N/E Ohio as every expert I talked to either 1. owned one or 2. has a friend who owns one.  Did you ever meet the expert who will tell you they only put 302's in Fords Huh (honest conversation)

Sorry kolektor  no link to pics ,nothing real interesting ,and my body man has all the strip down/panel shots. We'll be getting it all together in the future ,not a priority right now. All totaled I think we are around 400-600. Digital is a wonderful thing ,they add up quick. Keep in mind that includes every number (pretty much) on the car. His pics are for his reasons: documenting his work and what wasn't under the paint.

To your question ,yea. Under the rear deck lid + hinges ,wheels, top of fuel tank, factory lead ( roof/quarter seam) " goop" on the sides of the cowl ( see pics). Factory panel alignment ( pretty damn good from Norwood !) Weather stripping--doors always shut with 2 fingers, staying that way. Trunk. OE drums and rotors are getting shelved with the exhaust and tires. Still in spec. and irreplaceable. All markings and sheet metal codes were documented. (pics). Interior, trim,glass--staying. All bushings getting replaced ,OE's getting shelved. 4:88's staying as the Lakewood bell housing (OE's shelved). Lot of posts on finishing underneath--check it out.

WAAYYY COOL !!  Cheesy     Where's the kit ? Got a 71 402 that would be perfect for it  Cheesy

thanks ,like I said we're shooting for a finish date June 2015--when it gets home late spring/early summer the shells going on a body cart and the rearend/subframes getting detailed over the summer.Interior is a matter of " re-installing what I have" Mechanically engine,trans.rear end is done. Just need detailing. I want them off the car and done as a unit ,body bushings are mildly dry rotted anyway--actually all the bushings are getting replaced. Progress is sorta directly proportional to kid's college costs !

One more shout out to my body man--those doors were taken off , hinges/hardware shot separate and reassembled--pictures do not give the work justice. All in all when we hit the Nationals and Chicago--it's going to be his day, not mine. I can not believe how the fresh paint pops--it really needed done. I have no regrets re-doing this Z.

And the homestead in snow---back to study for my promotional.

Dropped some parts off to the shop today and shot a few pics--coming along, paint this spring--right on schedule--subframe/rear end this summer. To my buddie's chagrin ,requested undercoating on sides of firewall left alone--can't see it ,I know it's there and wanted it left be. In the line up is the only cancer found in the car: lips on rear quarters, pass side rear window under molding. No surprise ,I knew. And what's wrong with resto-mods  Huh Cheesy. Billet ,tubular A arms ,big brakes ,cool wheels, lowered--what's not to like?  Grin
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Nagging questions about parts and restoration direction on: February 16, 2014, 06:48:07 AM
I'd go restomod ,or protour or what ever they call it. See the prices these cars are demanding? Hang what you have on the car and go from there. Honestly if a car's more" Classic Industries" than GM---also what's wrong with putting 2 buckets ,a cage and a crate BBC in and take mama drag racing? More fun turning a 10 than watching the grass grow anyway! Bottom line I wouldn't obsess so much what it might be worth--priority is body ,anything else are just bolt ons. Stay warm!!
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: trim ring fit to rim on: January 25, 2014, 03:36:05 PM
Mine are sort of a PIA to get off ,4 clip design obviously, and original to the car.
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Trim tag on: January 25, 2014, 10:05:21 AM
Say you have a good engine ? Figure rear end gear (may have been changed vs. axle code) Pull off rear cover and count teeth on pinion/ring ,divide, this will give you your ratio. More accurate than counting drive shaft rotations IMO. Personally I think your best street set up would be a 3:73 with a modified 350 trans--dollar for dollar. Go with a reputable supplier to choose your convertor, should be filling out a questioner. I personally use Transmission Specialties out of PA. for our drag car.

yup--looks just like a 68 SS El Camino I bought/sold about 2 years ago---shy of the mouse nest on the intake.
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 Barn Find?? on: January 25, 2014, 06:31:53 AM
Can't chime in on colors----with Ash Gold----it better be fast Grin ( sort of like naming your son Sue!) Johnny Cash?? Cheesy
330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 Barn Find?? on: January 24, 2014, 07:34:40 PM
Wow--looking at it again ,really bad. Scary to think what's under the paint. Real shame there--far from a 70K Z.
