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/28’s 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.

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.

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.

I think the "drifting to the right" is from back in the day when most roads were two lane with a crown in the center to drain off water. Four and more lanes today don't have a crown, think a banked NASCAR track. The book settings are from 1969, a good alignment guy should be able to recommend settings that will work with your car on todays roads.

In my previous post I didn't mean to imply my car is all over the road, just not as precise as todays cars with radial tires. It is still way fun to drive...

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 15" Trim Rings on: October 22, 2013, 01:18:10 PM
I have searched and found out there were three designs for the 15" trim rings. The first is with the 4 outside clips, then 2 designs with full circumference internal clips. I would like to find out what date were the 4 clips were used till, and what is acceptable for Legends Judging. My car is a 5A and has 2 of each style? Thanks.

You would want the full weight of the car on the suspension before the upper and lower control arm bolts are tightened. There are serrations on the ends of the bushings that will bite in place when the bolts are tightened.

After my frame off, where everything is tight and aligned right. Using the Goodyear’s, you kind travel in the general direction of where the front end is pointed. It certainly not like any new car of today but that is the fun part of driving a car that is 44 years old.

The noted damage is interesting, wonder if the broken motor mount had anything to do with putting the car in the water.

Did you try Camaro Specialties? Last time I was there they had a pretty good selection of singles and pairs of heads,   http://www.camaros.com/
