Much like the rest of us, looks like you need a bit more space.

Good luck with the project.

Orange Berlinetta with T tops, must be a rare combination, I'm always on the look out for an 81 Z28.

Not to mention it has a rear spoiler too! 3 of the 4 original wire hub caps are in the trunk too.

I'm trying to find the breakdown of model production too, but still no luck. I'm also in the hunt for Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, etc, etc, etc.

Thanks Layla!! We'll see if this one will be ready by next summer. It all depends how far I end up diving into the car. Not sure if I'm going to do a frame off yet or not. If I do, it won't be ready by then!!

Well I'm into the Rochester Quad rebuild so far. Parts are stuck in NJ as from the aftermath of the Hurricane I'm thinking!!

Does anyone from the Greath White North have any sources up here for parts? I know of Ultimate Performance, and a few others, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! I'll be looking for suspension, all exhaust, brakes (I'd like to upgrade to disc on the rear), and I'm sure others as I get further into the car. I'm just looking for sources in Canada if possible.


Thanks!!
John
