Just wondering if this is posted wrong? 79 views?  (no response).. or should it be posted elsewhere.   I've been checking the CRG for a couple of years for info, and now deciding to join for more input. just not the (non) response I was hoping to get.

I removed your poll.

There are no questions in this thread. So I am confused as to why you are confused.

We'll be happy to answer your questions. I see you ask about grill color. It's all black. That answer was about 6 up from where you posted.
How about some pictures of your project? Corvette bronze is one of my favorite colors. The first Camaro I bought in 1976 is bronze. I still own it.

I'm also a lover of the Corvette bronze color (whether it be on a corvette or a camaro)...  the *ultimate* would be a corvette bronze '68 Z28... :)

I disagree. The  ultimate is 68 SS/RS 396 4 speed convertible corvette bronze! But I am partial.

Yes, that would be a nice car as well, especially if the 396 were an all aluminum version with solid lifters... :)  Maybe a ZL1 painted and labeled as a 396?  :)

     My plan is to build this car for auction.. I'm in the process of replacing the quarters. I've taken the extra steps of blasting the inner structure, (under the hinge area, inner an outer qtr glass structure. only because of mild surface rust, I know some of these areas are not seen. what would be the proper color/coating(top guys on here look for at auction) when looking?  I've restored plenty of cars, just not something this rare, for auction?
