General Discussion / Re: Chassis Broadcast Sheet

I went through our NOR db and unofficially came up with 133 entries showing a BC. 112 were BBC only; 5 were CBC only, 16 had both. Norwood produced 551,354 1st gens so that's not very many.

My guess, about 90% of those exist because the dealer retained it. A friends' family had a Chevy dealership 1953-1985 and he stated it was common to find production paperwork in cars at delivery. I have several folders from the few '60s Corvettes they sold and there are some unusual docs in them.

@Mike & Tim - Thanks for the info.  Mine's silver too, but ah, I think I ah painted it silver ;-)   I'll have to figure out how to correct this.

Are you saving the photos as well?  If not I would suggest you hyperlink them to a cell and have a dedicated folder that you put them.  I have a system down now that I do all my spreadsheets with. I also have each column filtered for sorting.

I have a 1969 Z-28 that will be going into the paint booth soon and wanted to confirm a few details. I'm assuming that the door and trunk hinges and all bolts should all be painted the same as the body color. And the same goes for the trunk lid catch (part that is attached to the trunk lid). And that the trunk lid striker/latch (part that the lock attaches to) should be left as bare metal. I think the finish is or should be silver zinc plating. Is that correct? Thanks in advance for your help.
Review several of the cars in the "Original Cars and Details" section. Several pictures there clearly show how to paint your trunk area and probably some pics for your door hinge area. There are some great survivors there and worth the effort to review. Picture worth a 1000 words.
Mild Modifications / Re: Dz302 rod bolts

Probably better off.   I went the same route with my build.  I priced bolts, remachining the big ends, mag,  bushed etc....and I wasn't that far off from a brand new set of Eagle Sportsman cap screw rods, which are stronger, lighter, and give me piece of mind.  So naturally I boxed the stock rods and bought those.   Given the value of these blocks now, and the fact that I want to wind it up and have a little fun, the choice was very easy for me.

30-35 years ago would have been different.  After market choices were limited, these blocks were still a dime a dozen, and people didn't care so much about numbers.

 I can tell you back then, when I didn't have as much money and putting engines together on the cheap, I would buzz these small blocks to 6500 all day with stock rods and original bolts still in them and never had a failure.  Call it luck or whatever, but I won't do that these days.
