    What finish is on shock protectors

    Interesting there are a few opinions and most seem to land on metal finish. After soaking mine in evaporust, I see black paint on mine. I asked the original owner about if he ever painted anything under there and he said no. I’m inclined to think they were painted black from the factory. It would be good to hear from Leo. Thanks for the replies.

    I see black and grey or metal finish. Does anyone know what the factory finish was?

    Which One and Why

    Cool post. I have my triple black 71 SS so it was hard to choose something I already had. Went with the 71 4 speed but would want the bucket console interior. I kind of made my own 5 speed version. 🙂

    Wow Mike, sorry this happened to you. Glad you’re okay. No idea on the claim.

    Winter project

    Looks nice. I smell a snowball.
  10. Pretty sure I’m in the last body bushing holes at the back with no problems. I’ll take a picture for you tomorrow when it’s light.

    Minni Monte

    I’m starting to see how these build threads are a great record as a car evolves over the years. Nice that the posts are dated so I don’t have to remember.

    noisy/loud valve train

    I did Comp Cams hydraulic roller valve train in my 454 and it makes a lot of noise. Sewing machine like. Eventually I got used to it. I believe it’s a common complaint

    Horn Relay Question

    Sounds like you’ve diagnosed your problem. Relay needs power and ground to operate. You proved power.
