I'm not really a FNG.. but i got a FNR.. F...N... RIDE.. .
went out and did something a 50 year old does for his b day.. i got a sports car.. not that the truck wasn't a sports truck, or the challenger wasn't a sports car, but well, you you decide....


Yes, its a 1987 IROC Z28 Camaro.. all original with the old 305 V8 TPI..

i need someone with a mobile extractor to come steam clean my interior.. all i can do is vacum it, but i would really like the carpet, headliner and seats to be steamed.
the wheels need to be refinished as well but i love the car.

its been repainted, but it was a good job.. with some over spray under the hood.. but i can get rid of all that. she's running a lil rough. she has a miss somewhere.. and there's the typical things i gotta replace, suspension bushings. etc ..

Yes, DEEZUZ DEEZUZ and I aren't alone anymore.

If you are considering getting the stocker's refinished, consider also a set of Hawks replica IROC-Z 17x9 wheels. They offer the wheels alone if you want different tires too.

If your car doesn't have the factory equipped Wonderbar, TDS, UMI, etc.. all sell good ones. It boxes the front of the frame rails to remove any deflection in the front of the car under steering loads. With todays stickier tires, its basically a requirement to have it.

Also, ditch the factory alignment. Factory alignment on these cars actually puts in .5* of positive camber. UGH. Contributes to the way they seem to wallow all over the road. Thirdgen.org is a huge resource for these cars. Plenty of chaff to sort through, but also probably the most technically comprehensive collection of information on 82-92 F-Bodies.
