    Hello to all my fellow 70+ Camaro enthusiasts,
    Ive said it before and will say it MANY TIMES Again. Jack Seymour and Phil Borris have both been of superior significance in furthering the 1970+ Camaro restoration hobby. Phil with his multi award winning 70 COPO that was way ahead of the curve.....and Jack most recently for finding, cleaning and photographing (almost) every finite detail of his 70 Orange SURVIVOR Z-28.

    I will personally never forget the contributuion they (and many others) have made to the 2nd Gen "hobby" (aka Obsession in my case).

    To not always thank Mad Mike and Gary Stegmiller I would be amiss............

    Amen Chuck!!!!

    For the last 3 months I've been reading everything Jack, Phil and the others have posted here that I can find and the knowledge base is stunning. I can't tell you how much I've learned in that time.

    I'd also add that Jack, in addition to his knowledge, is one nice guy. Im sure the same could be said of the others as well. It's a true honor to get to play with one of his past projects.

    Remember too, that if you want to have the support on you can't install the heat sheild unless you modify it. So I leave mine off.

    And I believe I got one of the last heat shields from GM. I think there were 3 left when I got mine this summer.

    those heat shields show for big block and haven't been in the GM systems since 2003

    3972156 is the number shown for the 1970 Z28

    wherever you got yours was pure luck!

    want to share?

    Mark, The reason the shield doesn't fit is it's not the correct one and if your car is a Norwood car it didn't have a heat shield.
    The only cars that got them are the LA cars and it is the 3972156 this is by far the hardest part to find (even the TCS clip), I have only seen one in person and that was at this years Carlisle. They are cut out to fit only the 70 Z28 LA cars. Here's a few pics.

    Well, the 1st one I bought that's currently on the car is the same part #. I guess even back in the 80's when I bought it they didn't have the correct one. Oh well.

    That's Jack. I like using them cause the car runs better and I get no perculation from the fuel bowls.

    Maybe I should buy some aluminum sheets and start making them.

    FWIW.......I glass beaded my repro bracket, then used the Eastwood Blackening chemical's to turn it black. Worked pretty good, but still doesn't have the "stamp rite" on it.

    But I picked an original one up on Ebay cheap that does...:) :)

    Looking at Jack's fuel line clip, maybe these were painted or dipped black instead of phosphated or plated?

    John,

    the original one I just got from Ebay look's like some kind of plating.....not paint. It's a little scratched up, but I'm going to leave it that way for now.
