I am not sure of where I got this picture from, might have been from James Black Z.

I wonder if there was more than one source, or a NOR LOS difference.

Nice job Don, now to confirm if these are original or not. Some other examples of low mileage cars I have seen, line up the third line with the bullet numbers. I wonder what John Z has on his car.

Don,

I emailed you the pictures. I did not have much luck resizing them to fit. Maybe you could configure them like the ones you posted, just see the difference between them.

Here is an old post from the Yenko site. I have the pictures on a hard drive and can find them later.

One year paint color, so you know what year my Z/28 is. (1969)

I had the exact same problem last year. It turned out to be some crud behind the bleeder screw on just the one wheel cylinder.

I got 5 tires from SmalHurst. No problems at all.

What??? You know I have a 1969 Z/28, hence the "Dusk Blue Z", one year only paint nick name.

Norwood built the 1969 Camaro from August 1968 till November 1969, VN quit building them June. I would not call a May car an early car, it is more than half way through the production run at Norwood and almost the end in VN. My car is from Ohio.

I would like to see what you have for the other harness part numbers for a 69 Camaro. I'll have to check the trunk tag next chance I get.

Bowtie,

My car has a 5A build date.

 "I checked my Chevrolet Parts History Index, and 6297602 superseded 6295217 on 2/69.  Now, we all know that the engine wiring harness was lime green."

I read from your quote that the 6297602 harness superseded the 6295217 on 2/69 which would make sense on my car, and make the 6295217 harness the earlier one.

I know my rear light harness has a White tag as others had mentioned, but I don't think I would say all the engine harnesses were Lime Green from just one example. I would like to hear what others had found on their cars.

I was told once that the reason most parts were color coded was because many of the assembly line workers at the time could not read.

Attached is the codes on the tag I recreated with Word. I don't think this is a date code, car is 5A with console.

Here's a picture of the engine and light harness off my 28K mile 69 Z. Printed tag was kind of lime green and an orange spray spot on the other one. I made a new tag using MS Word and wrapped it in clear tape when done. I can't find the .doc right now, I'll keep looking.

The rubber line just makes a 180 degree loop from the hard line to the fuel pump, not mounted to the subframe and just 2 spring hose clamps. I can take a picture if you really need one.

If you look at the bid history, did sassygrass320 bid himself up to $2,500?

During the restoration of my 28K Z/28, I took the leaves out and had the cleanest one scanned at my local auto paint supply house. They used the same scanner that you would use on the paint of the car to match a custom color for repair. They mixed a small amount up and with a brush test, it was spot on. I had a batch mixed up in spray cans and used that. They look great but I have not driven the car yet to see how it will hold up. My thought is if the paint rubs off at the contact points they will rust, and then look just like they originally did. Below is a picture of the original spring used for the scan. I think I have a couple of spray cans left over.
