My last post( I spend way too much time on this site Cheesy)

Could there not have been some variation ? There has always been some debate on underside finish ,overspray/primer. When I stripped it underneath this summer (sucked) and got down to the layer of body color : passenger side had overspray heavy under rockers well under drivers seat, pass side very light under rocker--above the tank might as well been bare metal. Maybe the painter's knees were beginning to hurt! Any more pics from survivors would be welcome from me also. To me these imperfections from the factory are where the detail hides today.

Have fun ! I think most here operate in that gray area between not wanting to destroy what's irreplaceable but not "clipping" them either. They are Z's ! If I cant take mama out and still scare her in it once in awhile it's hitting the red carpet.

Take back my earlier opinion ! Drinking my morning coffee watching this rose the hair on my arms , awesome.

Big cube small blocks have been around for  years ,and very popular in the gasser mix.

The Supers(circle track) who traditionally run alky injected big blocks began making the switch--more in New York ,slower to catch on in Ohio but guys are winning with them--not without protests. Not my crowd but a friend of mine is  into it--- you want a bullet proof motor built, see whose pulling hard out of the corners with these guys and who they use.

Back to the Z ,wonderful to see not just a stickered up grocery getter coming off the line but the real deal ,also considering the availability of the COPO for Super Stock, looks like GM's heavy into R&D--- and competition always leads to a better product for the consumer.

I want mine in  Cortez Silver !

No problem, I tend to rant when talking performance mods, the pen units do seem to offer the best bang for the buck while keeping it looking stock and clean, not firing a 14:1 engine.
321  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sill Paint on: October 14, 2013, 10:21:05 PM
Now I know. Rockers were correct, take it up a little on the lips than body color--satin---thanks again.

Interesting looking at the survivor, as of Sunday my cars been stripped ---- what was on it matched the pics  so many years ago attention was paid to detail, and it ran the full diameter of the lips. Was always told it was a good idea being " cheap" and easy to touch up stone chips. The color wasn't flat but not quite as much sheen as the survivor.

6AL is  the control box so to speak, small chips ,which are actually resistors , plug in for quick change on the side. They come in an assortment of numbers ,I'm not getting into a product debate because I'm not on MSD's payroll. Yes Pertronix has a great rep and offers a clean , stock appearing upgrade. Back to your original question, IMO keep it under 7 grand.

Which unit are you using? I have some time to look on line right now. Might as well check into it.



6a, which I plan on robbing for the Z . They have a new unit out where you can control everything including different ramps for timing via laptop ,around $500-600.  Very affordable tech for bracket racers. My buddy has a 8.9 72 Camaro his daughter races at mid 9's. We both run locked out distributors and hard starts when at operating temps have been cured. He's sold.
I'm giving it a try next spring. I need to take some more hit out at the line.

My Sun Tac is mounted in dash ( fuel gauge spot) has been 44 years. I had the Mallory, oil/water temp gauges mounted on the cowl. With the glass snorkel hood really had that old super stock look. I did have issues with the MSD dial accessory to control rev and went back to the chips.(Anglia ,I'm bouncing between cars)

These 302's can take a ton of abuse with only high REV issues I'm aware of being in the valve train. Also heavy pistons . Strong crank and rods.(Relieved of course now) My dad shifted at 8200 ,other than some ignition and traction issues she lived to see another day, that was in the 70's and hasn't seen that kind of abuse since. That being said ,today It's staying under 7 grand----you can pickup a dressed 383 crate motor for what one of these blocks are worth.

We run a MSD box in the Anglia, 500 increment chips, soft touch. You can hide the box under passenger seat. Check their website for specs ,works with points.

Adding to I ran a Mallory Rev limiting Tac for years in the Z, still have it. Worked great and would dial down to 0 when I left the car. 1 setting for limit ,one  for shift light.
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sill Paint on: October 14, 2013, 01:36:52 PM
thanks

Relative question ,what are you doing with it ? Racing ,cruising with an occasional bang through the gears ? On the race car we run a 2 step 1st to flash the convertor at launch, 2nd a few hundred past point were power curve starts coming down/shift point.  On the street I plan on 6800 to keep it safe with the 4 gear, plus according to my cam sheet power begins to fall off. They may be able to take a 8 grand spin ,but do you really want to push it ? Don't make a habit of "stuttering the engine " Even on the 1st stage I leave on the tac just under the chip. Very hard on the engine otherwise.

Sorry ,nothing to add but a few more questions : Were all 68-67 RS blacked out at rockers ?
                                                                       Did it go into lip of front fender/rear quarter ?
                                                                       
My Z did not come with the RS package ,but was added by #2 owner sometime in 69-70 ( Old Reliable look ,down to locking gas cap, SW gauges  ,console  delete)

It's in paint/body now and my guy has been asking how I want it done---body color all the way down past rockers with overspray underneath ,off the line or blacked out ? I'm keeping with the RS look but want it shot correct. Also what " black " was used ?  Same as stripes ,or different shade ?

Once again ,sorry I have nothing to add here but this should expand the thread a bit.

BTY never have and never will try to pass this off as a RS optioned car . At this point it's going to be fun telling the history at meets.
