The rears were painted black by eaton.  Masked with a tube over the pinion stub/collar and sleeves protecting the Ebrake cables other than that I have not seen markings on them, there is a photo of subframes and rears being assembled around here and there are no marks visible, it is my opinion that it would be restoration graffiti on a rear end and unless documented by pre resto photos I would leave it without.

YES the rotor must face the #1 plug wire position on the cap and #1 plug wire goes to the front plug on the drivers side of the engine.

What I mean is the rotor is facing cylinder number 3 when I index it, not number one. I can't get it to face number 1. Now that I think of it, maybe I need to rotate back all the plug wires one step. I thought it was supposed to face the number one cylinder. But now I am thinking it needs to face the number position in the cap??... Danny

Yes, I usually shoot 2-3 coats, (White stripes 3, 2 for black) typically leave the tape in place or re-mask the edges and cut any imperfections/rough polish with the tape there so I won't accidentally take the edge down too far. With 3 coats after un-taping the taped edges feel "tall" which I slightly cut with 2000.
As an aside... I often tape edges and creased crowns/breaklines when polishing vehicles. 

Depends on paint company, coverage, knowledge of product and spraying technique. 1.5 - 2 coats of Concept black or white for stripes and I'm done. If you over reduce it a tad and keep the mil thickness down it leaves a minimal edge. I pull my tape as soon as the paint is out of dust. All you want is coverage, not thickness. Once the stripes are tickled and buffed the edge is still there but not like that of a non buffed buried stripe.

I know of a couple of cars that were attempted to order with the MA6. Orders were held up and finally built without.
Corvettes did get it.
I had to use a L-88 clutch disks in my Z/28 because the stock disk would throw the lining off at high RPMs. also the 10.5 diameter disk with a 11 inch pressure plate would shift better because the edges of the disk would not feather out like using the 11 inch disk

It always points to number 3.

The next cylinder in the firing order is 8 not 3.
It should be either 8 next in line to be fired or 2 previously fired

Firing order

You had mentioned FORDS earlier...
Remember Chevrolet has odds on one bank and evens on the other unlike FORD which has them in order. 1-4 on one bank and 5-8 on the other.
