Default My 1995 Z28 project with pictures *new picture*

I previously had a 1998 Camaro SS but had to sell it back in 2008 because of financial reasons. Really missed that car, so I decided to look for a low priced 4th gen that I could slowly put some money into to end up with a nice cruiser.

I found this 1995 Z28 in January of 2011, it needed a lot of work but it was exactly what I was looking for. I got most everything for the car with it, but the interior was out of it and the motor and trans was out also. The car was an auto but the PO was going to convert it to a manual. He had the T56 and all the necessary components from a donor 1994 TA. Once I got the motor and trans in I had to do some re-pinning on the TA harness to get it to work, thank god for this site, SHBOX.COM and me purchasing a Helm manual for this car! I was shooting for a completion of August of 2011 for our local labor day cruise night and car show, but I didn't make it. So when that goal failed I decided on a color change to SOM. I know it's not a 1995 color, but I just really liked it. Here are some pictures of the progress up to now, which is almost done minus the interior. A few more weeks and it should be on the road. More pictures in my album if anyone is interested in looking.

I love that color, just get some new wheels on it and it'll look perfect. The car looks good though.

I've got a set of C5 Z06 wheels I picked up locally that will be going on as soon as the dirty work is done.

The motor is stock now other than being .030 over and I don't intend to take it to the track or anything, but I do like the sound of a mild cam. I may do a cam over this coming winter. I also have a set of lowering springs that I got with the car that I may put on this coming winter also. My intentions are just to have a nice day cruiser with some decent power to have fun with.

The "DIY" paint booth actually worked very well. I used a furnace blower for the exhaust and kept the motor out of the fumes, paint filter material from where I work for the exhaust and the good quality pleated furnace filters for the inlet air. I wet the floor down lightly with a garden sprayer filled with water. I had very little dust in the paint.

If you can turn, you're not going fast enough.

The lowering springs I have are 1.5" if I remember correctly. The wheels I have are 17's up front and 18's in the back.

Thanks for the complements. I'll try and post up some more pictures after the weekend. I should have the remainder of the exterior done and the wheels on it by then.

Thanks guys. I plan on getting rid of the flowmaster exhaust, but it's what came with the car, so that's what I have to start with. As for the door handles, everyone has a different opinion, but I like them black. More pictures coming soon.
