Thanks for the reply. That's a nice looking piece and it'll look great on your Mustang.

Here's a direct link to the Crafty B website... http://www.crafty-b.net/index.php

Darrell,

That broken spring would bother me, esp if you have a high lift cam installed...  Are you close to 'spring bind'??
PS.  The car looks great.  I like the gray spokes...  Smiley

No it's not close to coil bind.  This engine still has the original L78 cam & springs. 



I know the topic of the tail paint has been discussed here before and I believe the consensus was the black paint used for the tail was the same for the lower rockers (where used) and the firewall. It makes sense because I doubt GM would have a special gloss just for the tail blackout. If you were to take a guess (unless you know for sure) at what gloss level would you say yours is?

Mike

I can't say with 100% but I would guess 70-80% gloss.  You have to realize that in my case the tail panel hasn't any type of protectant applied in over 20 years.  Just a wash every now & then.

 I figured that but I'm not sure what he is stating. Does he mean the tail blackout is gloss black?

He's talking about the black paint on the tail pan.

"I have to retract my first belief of them being semi or satin black. "
  What do you mean by that statement?

Wow, just read thru your thread.  That's a bummer on your Camaro.  I wonder if the dealer knew or if did they took it on a trade and flipped without knowing a little something.

As far as a "Small Claim" in court.  Yeah you'll probably win but that's about it... in Florida anyway (maybe your state is diff but I'd doubt it, all states pretty much the same).

If you win a small claims case, You may be surprised to learn you don't automatically receive the money when you win a judgment. If the defendant doesn't voluntarily pay, you'll have to use additional legal procedures to collect. Unfortunately, it is easy to get so caught up in thinking about suing the person who did you wrong that you forget to think about how you'll collect. This mistake can compound your original loss by wasting your valuable time for the dubious satisfaction of hearing the judge say, "You win." 

If your lucky.. and I stress "REAL LUCKY"  collecting from a solvent (company able to satisfy its debt obligations when due) individual or businesses isn't usually a problem.  Why I say if your "REAL LUCKY".  Cause most business operate on a "Starved of cash" base.  They're able to hide things like $$ thru other methods of the business.

So when you win..which most likely you would a lien is filed against the dealer.  And if there are other liens then yours follows suit in order behind the others.  You then would only be paid if the business decides to close and liquidates all assets and they began paying off all loans and liens held against them.  If the cash from their liquidation is all absorbed before your turn to collect... well tuff  Sad   

Bankruptcy...No good also.   If a person or a business declares a straight bankruptcy and lists you as a creditor, your right to recover a small claims court judgment outside the bankruptcy is cut off, along with most other debts.  Your loss again  Sad

Not trying to rain on your day,  but I don't want to see someone blow more money to only win and never recover.   Telling you from experience.  I had work done by a business to an old house about 20 yrs ago.  Though my lawsuit was for only $1500 + $100 court cost ($1600 total) .. peanuts to you I'm sure.  I won, the Company never even sent someone to represent them against me.  I was all smiles, skipping all the way down the hall to sign the papers.  Then I ask "so where do I collect" ?  BOOM the learning curve !

So in a nut shell .... Save your hard earned cash and play with your Camaro.  A great project that you and your son can enjoy and always remember... that's priceless !
