F.Y.I It is a good idea to bench bleed the MC before installation!

Restoration / Re: Interior rear view mirror repair questions
« on: July 15, 2019, 05:23:21 PM »
I just installed the original inside mirror in my '68 vert. which looked good with just a small blem in the glass, IMO which didn't justify replacing the glass, my question is in regard to the plastic shroud that goes over the brackets. The one I have is original to the car which has a medium blue interior but the plastic cover was black, however I noticed a small scratch which reveled the fact that the plastic is actually blue like rest of the interior, so I cleaned off the black paint with lacquer thinner and now it matches the rest of the interior, although I am curious as to why it was paint black in the first place since the car has never been restored before, so my question is did the factory paint these black for some reason? I noticed that the reproductions only come in black or gray.

Restoration / covertible Header Seal

Help! I'm in the process of restoring the convertible to frame for my '68 and need to find out what type of fastener goes into the holes in the picture, my original top had the weather seal but was missing the fasteners that went in the metal tabs, are they plastic plugs or some type of screws? Thanks

Thanks Guy's! it appears to have the same offset as the one in the previous posts, how much offset is on a '69?

Thanks Austin,
I am positive when I look back at what could have happened! and always try and learn a lesson from these experiences, a guy in the Corvette club  said the other day it usually takes two things to go wrong in this kind of situation and there where, and as I found out both were my fault, the first was using the undetectable gas and the second was that I got distracted the night before and left the gas cap off after fueling the vehicle, it's a sinking feeling when you can restore a car better than new an double check tork settings on hundreds of nuts and bolts and forge something so basic as a gas cap... pretty humbling!

I know this is an old thread but I recently found this NOS balancer that appears to have the right offset for My Z-28, but the spokes do not go the ring as the originals, will the work ok with my stock timing cover?
