Chick, just an FYI. I took my rear leaf springs to a spring shop and had them re-arched two separate times until I got the ride height where I wanted it. It's an option for you to consider if the car doesn't end up settling where you want it to.

Not to hijack, but when you did that do they heat up the springs? or how do they re-arch them, and do it a little at a time, and evenly to both?

They did not heat them. It's just put in a fixture and I believe they use a press to change the arc of the spring one way or the other.

 Grady and me will be there in the day 2 display with Grady's B Brown 69 COPO Camaro, it's still going together, whew !

Mike
Mike, how you making out with Grady's 69 COPO Camaro?
I did add a few detail things to our car prior to the show including the correct Roger Dean script on the tail pan panel Steve gave me, the repro window sticker, and an earlier more correct Y55 battery. Know the yellow script is not correct with what came from the factory but it looks nice and will leave it on for this show. Build thread has info on how the script was applied with 3M adhesive.

Chick,
FWIW, rear bumper guards were included with Z28 - they weren't an option for that model.

Yep, know that Kurt but admit I missed it when first proof read prior to arrival but with the mistake and stating/showing the repro window sticker in the build thread there should be no mistake its a reproduction.  I wish I had your eagle eye for things like that and I mean that in a most positive remark. :)
A side note: Using child's water based glue sticks go on easy, dry completely clear, and if you want just grab the paper and it peels off with easy clean up. I experimented with a couple glues on my entrance door glass prior. LOL

I would have done the same. It is a good finishing touch on a nice body of work.
If my car ever makes it to a show (probably MCACN if any), I would consider putting together something like that. I assume since my car was a dealer trade, the original window sticker would have the first selling dealer, and they would not have made a new sticker for the the dealer that the car was eventually sold through?

Austin:  NO new window sticker, regardless of how many times a new car may have been 'traded' between dealers... window sticker would show the 'original' dealer it was shipped to.
