Hello folks, I'm building a restomod 1969 X33 Z28 that I have been sitting on for a couple years. The car came with matching 12 bolt (rebuilt and nice) rebuilt subframe with original'ish suspension, Wilwoods (for 15" rallys), really good body and floors, and a garage full of parts. Thanks to all the pioneers here over the years, my build will go mostly smooth since you have taken the risk and published your solutions here and on other sites. The build is already a year underway counting the planning, and 6 months into the hard work. I'll start at the begining and post progress up to date. This started with a thread here in 2014 when I was looking for the right paint to get a real'ish Burnished Brown for this car. My inspiration came while driving home in traffic 2010 near my home in Manhattan Beach, CA. Up next to me pulled a Burnished Brown, white striped, white interior Z28. I yelled across to the owner who said he (Jerry) had owned this car original, since he walked off the Navy ship he was serving on in late '69. I met him a few times at local shows and told him one day I'll tribute his car. My car is a Dusk Blue X33 that came with only the matching 12 bolt, nothing else. Since I'm not in posession of the original drive train, I"m building it as a RestoMod I can drive and enjoy. BB is the color I've liked since I was a kid. Build will use a mild LS1, T56, slightly updated interior, Speedhut OBD2 gauges in the stock dash. Here's a picture of how we started.
