I discovered another Tenzo-R-Turismo steering wheel and bought it (on left). I like it better than the first one I bought (on right).
Been busy swapping the mower deck back on the riding mower after taking the snow blower off. Going to have a few weeks of furlough this year, so coming up with a to-do list for the Camaro to see what I can work on. First will be some yard work around Memorial Day and then more time starting July for the Camaro.
Also was able to get some OEM bow-style headliner pieces which just about completes my OEM parts list:
Pinchweld, bows, and braces:
Scored some NOS barrel nuts for my 73 RS long fender bars and also some barrel nuts for some of the trim pieces:
Received a couple more items yesterday:
Thinking of having this nickle-plated:
NOS Quarter panel trim:
Woodgrain dash bezel – I had one already, but the cigarette lighter hole opening needed work. This one has no issues. I also received a wiper switch for the recessed wipers.
I also had to replace a water trap in my air compressor air line that was leaking air – I plan on using the blast cabinet next weekend and needed to get that resolved ahead of time.
ok – so I already have a complete set of these braces, but the long fender bars are NOS. I was able to obtain another set which all of the pieces are used OEM which is what I will mount on the car keeping my NOS bars. This is the first set I have: http://dougbratton.info/blog/2015/12/1973-camaro-rs-braces/
Here is the new set I just obtained – they were required on the 1973 RS Camaro due to stronger government rules:
My steering shaft for the tilt-column arrived:
I will be restoring this. It is different from the non-tilt column as seen in these pictures:

Just picked-up a set of Rally Rims – complete with SUPER NICE chrome trim rings and wheel caps. The rubber is going back to the owner, but I will be purchasing new tires when ready. I will also be painting them another color.
This time he brought me brackets for the a/c condenser. It will need to be painted and bushings replaced, but the price was a good deal. A couple of days later another set was twice as much!
I have another item on it’s way which I am very excited about… Check back in a few days – more details once it arrives!
I now have my second Rally Sport emblem – one for each fender:
