Default 1978 Corvette L-82 Parts Needed

I have a 1978 Pace Car, L-82, 4 speed and looking for some original parts that will pass NCRS.

Rear chrome ignition shields (both sides)

Delco Remy shocks front and back, heavy duty

1978 keys J/K stamped on round and square keys (need two sets)

Small lightbulb for socket located on inside hood drivers side

Replacement windshield wipers

Air filter replacement (AC A348C vertical mesh square opening) and small vent filter

Power antenna

Two air cleaner black tubes (looks like a paper mesh)

One air cleaner exhaust manifold tube (black) that looks like accordion aluminum

Oil Cap - chrome plated with center rivet with "S" stamped into it (Slant brand)

Delco Freedom 1 Battery HD

I am interested and sent you a PM

Also, does anyone have or know where to get a correct date coded front windshield for a 1978 Corvette Pace car date code around GJ (+/- a few months)?

I have a set of original 78 dated front shocks. PM if interested. They are in nice original shape. Both dated 233-78, part # 4984575

Thanks, I just bought the NOS Delco ones and will take the hit on judging. They were pretty cheap, like $25 each and I have seen correct rebuilt ones for 10x that price.

I just needed to get rid of my non-delco shocks as that was a full deduction for judging.

Ok, 50 bucks you can have my originals if the date works...

Three items tough to find. I scour Carlisle and managed to find them. If you haven't located them by August, let me know and I'll watch for them. I may have extra radiator shroud duct.
