Small point of interest Al - While working on the car this weekend I took the hood ornaments/louvers out of our car for some touch-up and found they weigh 4lbs apiece...like two bricks of lead sitting up there lol! I am seriously looking for some substitutes atm.

Almost reason enough to buy a 3D copier. Can't believe I suggested that.

Al, I don't know if you're planning to continue running the 327, but I believe that the hood louvers are correct only on Nova SS models, which came with a 350 or 396 only. With the crackdown on cowl hoods on 350/255 equipped '69 Camaros as an example, running the hood louvers may or may not create a future issue for you. (I realize that they are decorative only and not functional)

Nice car BTW!

Yeah, the hood louvers are going away....those are SS items only, anyway. Been trying to come up with a way to fill the holes w/o repainting the hood. Found a product today that should fill the bill.

Spent today drilling out the broken trunk lock cylinder (grrrrrr), remounted the fuel pump, tried a few different tire/wheel combos on the back, tidied up some wiring, finished welding up a transmission case brace, blah, blah, blah... -Al
