Thanks guys!
« on: July 09, 2016, 09:57:55 PM »
I was up till 2 am last night doing finishing touches on my Z, and took it to its first show today. I was thrilled for the car to win best first generation Camaro!  I want to thank everyone who gave me advice, opinions, a few of you did some work for me. It is finally done! I got a few little things I could do and the reproduction battery decides after 3 years it's good for 3 starts and I get to the show and dead in the trailer. The pace car in the background is owned by Dave Roberts of Right Stuff detailing.

 Congratulations, Bill! You should be proud! I'm happy for you.
Hopefully I'll be able to show mine next year and enjoy some of that good feeling.

I thought it should have posted a couple more so I will add them. And I know it should not have the screw holding the heater hose clip to the alternator but I should have a bolt in the mail for that today. Haha.

Stunning looking car, the wait was worth it. Bill it turned out awesome, now you just need the orange "caution fan" sticker and your all set for the show circuit... ;D

I have  never been down to the good guys show. This was the Arthritis Foundation in Dublin. Those two stripes were on the head from the factory. You could also see what looks like ok under the number one cylinder on the side of the block. Steve Shauger told me he had seen those stripes before.  I could see if it said DZ on the Block but look more like ok maybe it was upside down writing or something weird

 Interesting.......are those stripes some sort of white grease marker or paint?

They looked like it. The block was after it was cleaned. My engine guy has some kind of cabinet that rotates part and I think it blasted with hot water so those marks for under paint
