Hey Darrell,

Thank you for posting all the detail pictures of your Z/28. Could I request some more?

I am pretty sure your PCV, hose, and clamps are original. I would like to see the PCV valve to see what if any markings are on it. Also the choke vacuum pull off front and back, and the heads of the coil mounting and distributor clamp bolts.

I am kind of partial to the paint code too.

Chick,

You can learn a lot going through Legends Judging... I had seen the ribbed hose in several pictures of low mileage original cars. If you use the still available hose from GM wipe off the inkjet part numbers first. No inkjet printers in 1969. I found one at http://www.newyorkrestomod.com/default.asp but I don't see it on their website now.

The square cut clamps ends are made differently now and have rounded ends, I have heard a small grinder can change that. The one in the picture looks like it was painted Black as there is a small section flaked off.

I wonder what finish would be on a NOS fuel Y block?

Great Pictures! Thanks for posting.

A couple things I would like to point out. The first is the ribbed PCV hose with the Black flat ended spring clamp, no clamp on the PCV valve which was probably changed out years ago. There was a post about this hose awhile ago.

Next is the Y fuel block that looks to be steel? Will a magnet stick to it? Mine is brass.

I was going to borrow a couple of trim rings from my sister's 67 Vette but they are such a pain to install correctly I decided to go with what I had.

One thing I did notice in looking at cars judged in previous years, is that some of the standards have changed over time. And that's OK but I would still like to see the standards written down like in the NCRS books. I know that will be a huge undertaking, so I will offer my help in any way to be part of the solution.

I received my judging sheet today and got full points for my trim ring combination.

I had both types on my car. Four clip on the left side and the fingers on the right side. One judge was laughing about it because he had read the previous posts about this subject. I have not seen my judging sheet yet to see what the official ruling is.

I had a great time at the show meeting people in person that I have met on the web. My car scored 89.6% for a Silver first time out.

I asked one of the five judges what he thought about my hood seal and after inspection he said it was installed correctly. The original picture of my engine that I displayed, showed a tear in the seal with half folded in and half folded out.  I'll have to wait a few weeks to see what the other four judges thought.

While my car was stranded on the lift after judging, I had Courtney Mabeus a reporter for the Fredrick News - Press stop by and ask me why with all the beautiful cars at the show, I decided to display my car up in the air...

We'll be in Building 9 in Frederick. No CRG shirt, but look for the "special" New York State vanity plate on the Dusk Blue Z/28.

Is the metal between the front and back halfs gold cad plated like the pulley nut? If it is, that might be a clue to it's origin or at least the internal parts.

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.

12  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.
