Naw! I had three 6" rally wheels & 3 F70-14 white pin striped tires that came with the car but the rallys were off another car so this was my best guess as to how Orielly Chevrolet rec'd it. In the 10 months Orielly had the car they probably decided to ditch the yellow wheels & install the rallys from another car. The second owner removed the yellow bumper because he liked chrome. He kept the bumper which I got at purchse time....Joe

That color/trim combo looks amazing. I can't wait to see a shot showing the interior against the paint.

A couple more weeks. We're having a field day mixing a dye for the door panels, head rests & other plastics to match the factory yellow seats. Mostly faded but he's almost there. Door panels were reupholstered originals that Al Knoch did..Thank you,Joe

Being as detail-focused as you are, I'm sure you'll end up with a great match on the interior colors Joe. Gotta admit I like the old look with the slotted wheels on the car. Maybe a restored set after you've debuted the car?

The car is looking great man!!!

Last week I dug out some more NOS parts for the car....weatherstrips. In 1991 & 92 I purchased enough roof rail, door, & cat wiskers to do both of my Camaros. The Z/28 got them years ago. Now it's time to do the SS. They were only between 20 & 30 buck back then. Found a receipt for one I had to get for a dealer that new it was obsolete. I complained that I think he charged me list plus his cost, at least....79.00 shipped. Gladly pay that today. First time to open. Fit real nice...Joe

A friend of mine just sent some pictures to me on fb that I haven't seen in a long time. World of Wheels 1982 or 1983. My 1st restoration. My 1st higher end show. I've learned so much since. Must've been after that show I installed the ducted hood. It also looks like I had a white top & not parchment...Joe

Despite daytime temperatures being between 111 & 116 degrees, I still try to get things completed. The glass shop finally came & installed front & back glass. I installed the newly polished original stainless. Installed antenna mast & found a YOM license plate with "396" on it. Been doing lots of little things like cleaning grounds & making sure all the light work. First time I hooked up the battery cables, I jumped a little because I had the door open & the key in the ignition. Set off the key buzzar. Hasn't worked in all the years I've owned it...Joe
