Restoration / 1969 Rear Window Installation
« on: July 11, 2022, 11:01:45 PM »
I'm getting ready to install the glass on my recent restoration and saw the post regarding factory installed windshields, but my question is, were the rear windows installed with the same cloth dam or did they use a different material?

Decoding/Numbers / Factory Axle Stamp?
« on: March 28, 2022, 10:03:04 PM »
I was bead blasting my 12 bolt 4:10 rear end I had bought a few years ago and noticed grinding marks once the old paint was blasted off, it's not original to my car however I will be using it and just wondering if the factory did that?, are they original stampings?, also you can see the "E" stamped twice.

Restoration / Windshield Fabric installation strip(Dam)
« on: December 15, 2021, 05:11:58 PM »
Does anyone know where to acquire a correct white colored fabric ribbon similar to what the factory used in installation?  The old threads on this subject did not have any recourses at the time and wondering if anything like that has come available for a factory correct windshield installation.

Restoration / 1969 backup light restoration
« on: December 07, 2021, 04:17:47 AM »
Iím looking for advice in regards to my RS backup lights, I have the originals which are in great shape other than some minor pitting on the chrome and would like to send them out to be re-chromed , however I cannot figure out how to remove the wiring harness without damaging it. Any suggestions or know a business that can restore them? Thanks in advance

Originality / Comfort Weave Seats
« on: August 19, 2021, 05:14:53 PM »
Does anyone have any recent recommendations for where to buy correct comfort weave material? I took a seat from my '69 to a upholstery shop hoping he could simply stitch  a separated seam, but he said the woven material was to brittle and that he could replace just the comfort weave portions since the rest of the seats still in great condition , so I'm looking for the correct material or replace the whole seat cover if correct reproductions are available but have not seen any updates on this site or others.

Mild Modifications / 1969-Z wheels
« on: August 11, 2021, 06:18:21 PM »
I'm trying to decide if I should use the stock 7"X 15" YH wheels in front or 7"X 14" for my '69 Z in combination with the 8" X 15' AZ Vette wheels in the rear, I am doing a correct factory restoration but I don't plan on having it judged, just want to have fun on the way to car shows.
Any feedback is appreciated!

« on: August 03, 2020, 04:50:39 PM »
 I had lunch with My friend Tom the other day who is a long time member of NCRS and owns a '78 Camaro he bought new along with a 64 and 65 Corvette and has got pretty excited when I told him about my high school car a '69 Z that I'm restoring and he said he will be selling his 64 Vette and really misses his '69Z that he had to sell when he was called into the reserves and would like to buy one just like it, then he told me he had the original dealer order form from Yarnall-Todd Chev. in Chicago, and I mentioned to  him that I would reach out to the members of CRG to see if any info. is available. The VIN # 124379N535066, it was a Hugger Orange Rally Sport Z-28 with black vinyl top, M21, Console, Head Rest Car , power steering and brakes, rear antenna, flat hood and chambered exhaust. any info. would be appreciated, Thanks!

General Discussion / Can't Stop
« on: July 14, 2020, 06:48:52 PM »
I just finished a full restoration on my'68 SS Vert with factory rebuilt disc brakes and had everything working good when I assembled everything about a year ago and then brought it back to my painter to touch a few are areas after final assembly, the problem is that the brake pedal went to the floor after sitting for that time and found a small leak at the proportioning valve located under the driver door which I tightened successfully, and after bleeding the brakes had some resistance but the pedal still goes all the way down to the floor and I have bleed the master cylinder and all of the brakes numerous times and I'm at my wits end on this one!  I have restored numerous cars over the last 40 years and never ran into this before, I had everything professionally rebuilt and is factory and see no leaks please, any ideas?

General Discussion / RS Z fender emblem
« on: May 01, 2020, 07:30:46 PM »
Along the lines of fender emblems, I have RS Z-28 that was built the third week in August '69 and has the rally sport emblem but I have seen original RS Z's without that emblem, my question is did they start adding that sometime during the model year or was the factory sporadic on installing them through 1969? 

Restoration / Rear Wheel Housing Paint
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:18:21 PM »
I have been chipping 50 year old Ziebart under coating from my '69 Z and realized that it kept this car from turning into swiss cheese in the Midwest winters! It really preserved the original paint and discovered that the rear wheel housings show only the primers and the original metallic frost green paint with no sign of blackout, my question is did the factory ever blackout the rear wheel housings like I see on so many restored Camaros? or when I repaint the car replicate what's in the picture, I also posted the part of the underbelly where you can clearly see the frost green overspray and then the blackout overspray for the rocker panels since this car is a rally sport Z.

Originality / Mystery Screw on Firewall
« on: August 27, 2019, 08:23:17 PM »
Does anyone know if the screw that is shown on the firewall for the cowl induction relay or was added for something like a aftermarket coil? This car had a factory cowl induction hood but was not hooked up or had any of the components on it when I bought the car, I'm getting ready to blast the body for restoration  remove the screw and braze the hole if it's not stock. Thanks in advance

Originality / Rear seat X-code?
« on: August 26, 2019, 04:14:36 PM »
This weekend was spent disassembling my  '69-Z interior and discovered the "X" code which was DG X3 , can I assume the DG represents the  interior color?(which is a Midnight Green Deluxe interior) On a side note I attached a couple of pictures of stickers attached to the rear metal side panels and door panels which I discovered after removal the interior panels, I haven't seen these before?
