Thanks for posting that Steve, and for keeping this thread alive. I think a lot of us enjoy seeing the cars from down-under and learning more about them. The Indy Speed Shop Camaro certainly has that '70s look going on with it's paint scheme.

Eric, there are some general braking solutions and advice in this article... http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/tech/bbfh/bbfh13.html

You could try Porterfield brake pads with a more aggressive compound, make sure you have the front caliper reinforcement brackets, and install an adjustable proportioning valve if you don't already have one.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: New Reproduction Pilkington windshields

You're right about the 'LV'...  my first look at it got me the 'IV' which is not accurate.

The shade band does not appear 'blue' when viewed normally, but when a white reflective background is placed behind it, you can definitely see the 'bluish' band as compared to the green windshield.  My PPG windshield (in my car when I purchased it in '76) and dated '69' has the same appearance.  I never realized this until beginning to check out the 'blue shade' description of the Pilkington repro windshields.
In the photo below is a pix of my 'wiper scrub marked' PPG windshield (dtd 69); the shade does not appear blue, it just looks darker, until you back it with a white background. 
PS.  Having the shaded area to be blue makes sense when you realize that mid-day glare predominantly comes from the blue band of the sun's rays (which is why the sky appears blue!  :) )

Thanks Gary. That looks like 'LV' which is March 69 and a good date for an 04C built car.
Funny, the cars I've seen with very obvious blue bands must've had clear windshields, as the band on Lloyd's old car's screen looks much greener in the photos in James/Lloyd's thread, like this one (click on the link if you want to see the image, but be warned it's a big image, so I didn't embed it with HTML img tags due to the forum image size policy):

There have been Ford racers who have had their 4 piston caliper cast in aluminum...... doesn't work, it's not stiff enough in aluminum..   I'd have to guess there's something askew with your brakes, (or pads, or master cylinder..)   I don't think you'll ever stop with the smaller/later cars, but the Hemi Cuda reference tells me yours aren't right...    Ken
You are probably right. We will try to sort that out next week-end at Dijon.

I have other versions of these stamps. I don't see issues.
