O.K. guys I've got the 69 Z/28 all done and will be posting pic's soon. Haven't figured out how to yet. Anyhow the Cowl Panel is bolted down with interior screws from the painter. Anyone have a good pic of the original type fasteners that go there? I've got them in a bag somewhere if I can just figure out which type. Pic's would be a great help.

They are sheetmetal screws w/washer and 1/4" hex head.

Restoration house catalog will have pics. They're about 1" long, and have a large captured washer, and a hex head. (I'm guessing 7/16" wrench.

Thanks guys, and Charlie for the pic's.
I'm digging through the hardware bags now.
John the engine valve lash procedure you sent
ages ago works great! Glad to see it posted on the CRG forum. Now to get the exhaust manifolds re-skinned and the carb to Holley for a totally complete rebulid/replate.The spray on Eastwood paint looks good but still not as good as a rebuild from Holley.

Todd I saw a post on another board the other day that said the Holley Custom Shop has been closed; anybody else heard that?

If Jerry M. does carbs too then I'll send both the manifolds and the carb to him.
I've seen the pic's you've posted John on the reskin on your exh manifolds and they're bulletproof. My Exhaust Manifold treatment I sprayed on is rusting now after 1 year in the Desert? Oh well, Can you believe Jerry's original 69Z valve covers on e-bay are at $355 now? They'll probably go for $550 by the end of auction!
