Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

It's your car, RS. Your opinion is the one that matters most to you. Do you like them? Drive on them a few days & see what you think then. I personally like bright wheels on cars, as they look cleaner. That's my opinion.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Picked up the 383 on Thursday and then went camping with my friends all weekend. Haven't done much to it except put it on my engine stand. Gotta save up some more money before I can buy the intake and other odds and ends.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Well last weekend i rebuilt the entire front suspension on my 88. Had to replace brake lines so i bled some new fluid in slightly last week. Pedal felt so much different that i got the rear end up and bled all 4 corners today. Pedal feels very firm when pressed and brakes respond much better now.

If you havent bled your brakes or flushed out your old brake fluid yet, DO IT NOW!

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Did some more under hood polishing to pass the time until I can get it home to start the real work that needs to be done. Seems like every time I see it, I notice something else. I guess it's to be expected on a car that's 28 years old.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

One of these?

I always just call it a grille, search IROC-Z Grille and that's what comes up haha

I spent yesterday detailing my whole interior, including shining the dashpad with a thick layer of ArmorAll. for sunbaked and cracked it doesn't look too bad Gotta have the Cheby all nice and clean before this storm whacks into us haha

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Little by little, I'm acquiring pieces I need to get this car back to showroom condition. Next on the list is the rear hatch cargo cover. My searches result in units that don't look right. I have the round, circular mounting brackets screwed to the plastic behind the rear seat. One on each side of the car. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1982-1992-Ca...-/142474417890 Is this the right part? I don't see how or where to attach it to my mounting brackets. I need black. This is what I have for mounting the shade. http://www.ebay.com/itm/82-92-Camaro...Model%3ACamaro

I too, live in central Florida. Right in direct path of Irma. Wind gusts up to 85 mph with sustained winds around 50. Made a mess behind & lost power for 2 1/2 days. How did you fare, LiveIt?

The last bath my Firehawk got was March 2013. Has never even seen rain, so it didn't get a shower either.

Me and the Camaro did alright thanks we only lost power for a day and the yards a mess haha. After the worse was over I took the tarps off her and not even a minute later someone had pulled over to stop and stare had to explain she isn't an IROC but still plenty of fun!

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

I put a new car cover on my 84 Trans Am because the old one was falling apart.
Unfortunately my car has been sitting for going on 2 decades.
But I am collecting parts and have the engine ready to go.
I just have to find the time..........
But the info I have found here has catapulted me ahead by miles.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Got a nos grille, fog lights & the privacy shade ordered. The fogs on the car are pitted with rust spots. Can't have that. The grille that's on the car has holes drilled in it for a license plate. If anybody wants or needs salvageable parts that are taken off the car, let me know. If you pay for shipping, I will give you the part. The fogs can definitely be sanded down & painted to look new again. I will post links to pics if there is an interest. Otherwise, I will just throw it all away. Don't really want to do that....

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

what kind of fuel delivery are you going to use? sticking with tpi? I'm a fan of tpi. it works well and look great in these cars. its all bottom and mid-range but so are most 383s.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

One of the most obnoxious pieces that desperately needs to be replaced is mia. The HVAC fan control **** is missing from my car. Somebody replaced it with a large, circular chrome **** with a large black musical note on it's face. Man, that monstrosity needs to go & it has disappeared. Shipper is looking into it. Anybody have an extra one they want to part with?

The word that got deleted was ****. Looks like one from a 70s land yacht. Big chrome circular piece about the size of a quarter, with a big black musical note on the face. I'm going to the storage unit tomorrow & I will take a picture of it.

It might be worth looking into the complete units, just to get the piece I need.

Re: what did you do to your thirdgen today?

Installed the nos grille & fogs today. Tried to swap out the spoiler 3rd brake lights, but when I changed the one burnt out bulb, none of them worked. Didn't have my multi meter with me, so I couldn't check continuity. Totally forgot to see what size the bolts are thevhold the door pull/ armrests on. Anybody here know? I also ordered new underwood insulation, to freshen that up a bit.
