Looks great!  I always appreciate the work people go through to make things right.  It might be the photo angle....are your relief cuts for the wheel housing slits or V's?  Should be V's.

Once the spoiler became standard equipment on Z28's in April of 1969, did they drop the D80 designation on the trim tag?  I'm looking at an 04C Burgundy Z with spoilers - no D80 on the trim tag, just X33.

Gotta love California cars.....this car is the first time I can say that I like the dark green interior - just seems to work well with Champagne - pretty car!

Found same mark on my 09D COPO when I restored it.

This was on my 15,000 mile 1969.  Different part number than posted above.  Can't swear it's original, but sure looks the part.

The presence of broach marks alone shouldn't correlate with being authentic.  Machines like the ones that put the broach marks in at the engine plant still exist today so those marks can be reproduced accurately.  I was offered that service when I had my engine sourced.  I passed intentionally to avoid a future re-stamp forgery.

That looks like rear seat cushion cotton batting.

I don't know where your bubbling is or how extensive the damage, but has anyone had experience with "peeling it back", repairing, then re-gluing?  Would be great if you could keep the original top

I used to own a 66 Fairlane GTA convertible that was black with red interior and white top.  My all-time favorite color combo.  I'm in the "keep the vinyl top" camp.  Your car is absolutely beautiful!
