69 GTO Frame Off, Need a guide

Does anyone know what restoration guide would best show the details on a concourse restoration on a 69 GTO. My book just shows part no's and schematics. I need actual part finishes. I tried to search the archives and it seems like everyone has the same questions. Not any solid answers. I know about all the eastwood stuff but I need nut and bolt details.

If someone is trying to do a ultimate restoration for a high quality show car. Who is the expert. The last thing I want to do is tear a car down and put it back together only to have some judge pick it apart and tell me what I should have done.

HELP HELP HELP

you need the assembly manual
1969 69 GTO/TEMPEST/LEMANS ASSEMBLY MANUAL : eBay Motors (item 400091257813 end time May-10-10 10:32:14 PDT)
I have found the gto restoration guide to be lacking in detail
hope that helps- I think you can also get this on a cd-rom for your computer- search ebay

Thanks for the tip. Anyone know who are the "GTO Experts" on details like correct over spray and silly stuff we all used to ignore years ago

you may need to get in touch with someone that is an actual event judge, I am not nor do I personally know any "GTO experts" although there may be 1 or 2 on this forum

One of the GTO experts is Paul Zazarine, His book is named The Pontiac GTO Restoration Guide 1964-1972. I used this book to do a frame off on my 66 and found the information very helpful.

Here is a listing of the GTOAA chapters in the U.S., Most of the chapter websites will include e-mail addresses for the members.

Yeah I have a copy of his book, although its a great book it doesn't get in all the finishes. Right off the bat, no frame finish. It doesn't say flat, satin, 30%, 60% WTF. I'm at step 1 and already hit a road block. I've got a case of eastwood extreme chassis black ready to go this weekend unless I here otherwise.

check out Inline Tube - Preformed Stainless & OEM Brake Line Sets Now thats a frame resto.

There another guy on this forum who is having the same problem.
