    l3roy fell out his 2nd gen on burn out.

    It says, "He's a bit sore and has some road rash" Good for him - How's the car?

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    For sure. I think I've actually still got some "use it or lose it" PTO time this year. Usually use that to take a day here and there and spend it at Dad's working on the Camaro. The two greatest tools so far for this project: The blast cabinet/air compressor (Dad already had) and the...

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    In the last couple of weeks, I have: Cleaned up and painted the hood hinges. The photo is before and after sandblast, hadn't applied the paint yet. I used a gray that was pretty close to the "bare steel" color. And I've started working on the bumpers. Mostly because they were looking...

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    On Saturday, I put in the fuel cannister and rear brake lines. The new cannister line had the spring-like guard on it for almost the entire length, the old one did not. I don't mind having the extra protection, but the clips that secure the lines to the body did not want to fit over the extra...

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    Just read RickM's latest post and was reminded of something else I need to do under the car - rubberized coating in the rear wheel wells. I sandblasted all the old stuff out. I have a couple cans of Eastwood rubberized coating on hand for the job.

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    I forgot to update the work done on Saturday. And I think we did a lot! We put the car on some furniture dollies I beefed up with extra wheels in the center. It doesn't turn very well, but if you align the casters when you put the dollies under the car, it rolls sideways pretty easily. And...

    LOL - sorry, not a lot to report the last few weeks. Summer's got me lazy, I guess. 2 weeks ago I did some sandblasting on the passenger door. I'm not concerned with getting the primer off the interior, but I attacked the blue paint pretty hard: Meant to attack the blue paint on the driver...

    Acquiring a 1994 c2500

    I own a 1996 K1500 with nearly 250k miles and hasn't needed anything major, only front brakes (twice that I know of) and u-joints (once). The 4WD doesn't work, but you don't have to worry about that. It's on the to-do list to fix before the snow flies. Always got a kick out of the assumption...

    Looking at the forecast, I don't see any days this week supposed to be over 90. And possible rain. Sure would be nice! We'll see...

    Post a *PIC* of your latest purchase...

    Upgraded my Trek 820 mountain bike and the wife's Huffy Walmart special to a pair of Trek FX1s. Surprised her. Bought them while at work, then when I brought them home, I went into the house and told her I'd taken her Huffy to work and did some upgrades, including mounting her water bottle...

    BurnttoastBurgos 1979 Z build post.

    I didn't have a clue what I was doing when I removed my coil springs back in 2001. I used a spring compressor tool, but I know I'm very lucky I didn't get hurt bad. Putting them back in was one of the scariest things I've ever done (did it with the subframe off the car). With the same...

    Thank you Burnt - posts like yours tend to fuel the fire (if it needed it) to get more done, and it's awesome when the work that's done is appreciated. I'd like to see your car also - I haven't been to any shows or anything (yet), but I have met up with another Colorado Camaro owner and got to...

    Ah, opposite sides of a fairly large state. And a whole lot of high country in between. Ah, well.

    Looking good, good luck with the build! May I ask where in Colorado? I'm in Colorado as well and restoring a 73Z, and it might be interesting to compare our outside vendors.

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    Went back and took the exhaust manifolds back off to install the heat shields. I didn't realize they were supposed to be there until I saw them on another post. Dad told me they were often left off by mechanics. I am pretty sure they were not present when I took the car apart 20+ years ago...

    1973 Z28 Restoration "Lilith"

    Nothing done the last 2 Saturdays, went flat fender Wilys jeeping up in the mountains instead. Great time, nice weather, a few hiccups with the Jeeps but nothing that kept us down. 10 days of no stress. Sure was nice! Now, of course, back to the grind.
