Thought I would post a few pics of my lemans blue Z/28 I just completed. I never posted on here before but always researched a lot of info on this site.      Here is a little info about the car:;  I bought this in 2009 from a family that owned it from the mid 70,s.  It had been sitting in a barn/shed since about 1977/8.    The body was in very nice rust free condition and mostly original paint with the exception of the front fenders that had been repainted.   All #,s matching drivetrain except the original m-21 was missing.   I have been working on the restoration off and on since about 2010 and finally completed this fall.

great pics Brent! That motor is cleaner than most of the plates I eat off of....
The Blue with the black stripes and black Vinyl top, with the flat hood....wow

(looks like BITD, they painted to the grill black and added fender trim)

Any docs, what month was it built?

Great looking car so huge congratulations.
What would be excellent are pictures of what you found, markings, stampings, trim tag, while taking apart/restoring. Other words, what might be learned by how it came from the factory.
And welcome aboard!

No documents came with car ... Couldn't find a build sheet anywhere on car either.  Its a 02d norwood build so it does have the x-77 code on firewall plate and handwritten x7
 on the rear bulkhead which I saved and did not disturb when I restored car.
Good catch on the fender trim and black grill/light bezels.  I believe the grill was probably damaged and replaced when the front fenders were resprayed back in the day?  The bezels were silver underneath the black when I sanded them down so I figured they probably repainted to match the black replacement grill?   Not sure when the chrome was added to wheel wells but I decided to leave them off although I think they do look better on the car
