My thought would be that GM just had two suppliers so they didnít stop production due to being out of required part like a mirror. I am sure the parts were dated coded to track any manufacturing defects like the glass falling out because of bad glue, not that the dated part had to go on a vehicle assembled within a certain time frame. My C AX 9 mirror is on a 5A car.

C is for March. Ajax used letters and DMI used numbers for the date codes. My guess would be that just like the bolts used on these cars, they wanted more than one supplier to avoid parts shortages. I think the DMI's are being repoped because they were used on the Corvettes.

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Camaro Left Side Ajax Mirror on: March 16, 2014, 09:58:40 AM
According to CRG the DMI is the more prevalent mirror, the Ajax was a different supplier with not as many being used in production. I am looking for left side Ajax mirror dated C AX 9, or a lead to company that dates with AX. I can find the DMI dated coded as repop from Paragon, but they don't do the AX. Anyone found a place that does the Ajax?  Thanks.

How about reflection from the top of the fenders, and there is no insulation on a flat hood.

Thanks Lloyd, should have searched under "Air Cleaner Stud".

Looking to find out the legends correct color for a ZL/2 air cleaner wing nut. Jerry's book says it unplated?  Thanks.

The AIM shows items 12 & 13 added 10-31-68. Would that be the time frame parts made it into the production line?

Thanks for your input Jerry. I am looking forward to the Legends Judging this year.

My 5A Norwood Z had the original YH wheels in the front and Corvette 8" wheels in the back when I bought it in 1979. The replacement trim rings from GM that I put on the rear in the early 80's were the finger type. I am going to the Legends Judging with the 4 clips. We will have to see how this plays out.

rszmjt,
I was not questioning the originality of your instruction sheet; I was noting the printed date on the ebay listing that 69Z28-RS posted. If there are others that have your date or other later printed sheets, I would say that Chevy did put the 4 clip designs on the early 69 Z/28ís and maybe we could use this information to help track a date change to the second design. Especially if someone has a later sheet showing the internal fingers.

There have been numerous posts about trim rings recently, with different people offering information about what trim rings are on their cars. I will see if I can correlate this information similar to the gas tank codes and post what I find. If anyone else has done this already feel free to post.

The printed date on that paper is 9-23-66 and can be found at all the Corvette places. Does anyone have one with a later date like 1969.

Mike

I agree, that is one of my pet peeves about restoring Camaro's.

I can bring mine over and we can compare the different parts.

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 15" Trim Rings on: October 23, 2013, 11:23:42 AM
From the input it looks like the 4 clips were installed at the factory most if not all of the production cycle.

What would be correct in Legends judging? Any input from judges or someone who has gone through the process? Thanks.

Mike
