When looking at the burgundy covers posted above it dawned on me that they were probably stood up in a fixture for painting. (The fixture would also negate the need for a production note)

IF not mistaken the machine screws are either black zinc or phosphate.

IMHO There really shouldn't be silver on the tabs of a black car...  every other hole through either color grille displays a black background. Thus black in the negative space is what is expected.

Exactly what I have seen as well Lloyd, I had just observed and wondered about the Yenkos... After dealing with the 02D
 Daytona Yellow Berger RS COPO (narrow spoiler) and then Daves Yellow X66 01B Yenko which solidified the whole thing in my mind.

BTW... your car looks incredible.

IT could have been how they were hung OR maybe Stood Up in a slotted fixture during painting.
It is difficult to spray them when hanging as they want to act like a gate in the wind.

I am sure the frames were dip painted black as the pacer had black runs in it's headlamp covers.

One thing for sure... Masking the corners would be a lot less trouble than brushing on black out.

EDDIE... BTW, thanks for informing Lloyd about this detail!

Here are a couple of photos of the 26k mile 69 RS SS conv I found for Dave and I believe one of Charlies friends owns now.
Look at the lower mount tab on the first photo... IT DOES APPEAR TO BE BLACKED OUT.

Given that the first 50 Yenkos built the 2nd week of January had wide spoliers, it's kind of odd that they were not installed on other cars until Late Feb.

Original Cars and Details / Re: Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)

This thread has to do with Z28 Stripes on the Cowl - how about the wiper cowl panel?

I have noted that the Norwood Original paint wiper cowls do not follow the recess, the stripe inside stripe extends outside the recess by approx 5/16-3/8"
The Original paint LA cars do follow the recess area.
IF anyone has an original paint car which has something different please share photos.

FIRST photo Lemans Blue LA built
SECOND photo Black - NOR built

The metal end which screws into the box is a 90 deg bend about 1" up from the box fitting and maybe 3" out of the rubber line.

I was at a wrecking yard in Cinci back in the late 1990's and we got to talking muscle cars and the owner of the yard talked about running from the RR police in an impala back in the late 60's with a trunk load of Muncie transmissions they had liberated from a RR car.

BRIAN... has the Daytona Yellow white stripe yenko been located?
I absolutely love the white stripe on Daytona Yellow cars with the White striped Olympic Gold cars being a toss up. Actually coin toss me on OG white stripe or DY white stripe and I would consider either a win.

Its way thicker mil plastic than any sandwich bag.
In the fisher body book it says the plastic cups are available from the dealer, they may still be available.
I used an industrial HEAVY gauge plastic bag and used gorilla tape to attach it to the paper as laid out in the fisher book.  I probably should have cut the bag down to a shorter height as mine bunches up a little.

The coated paper version of the watershields are available from HEARTBEAT CITY.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that knowing Jon's car and having read much if not all of the history published on the first cars they were destined for road racing. If not mistaken there is a list - maybe on the TA forum here regarding the first cars.

It's like the hard top wrenches for 2 top vettes, they nearly always get away from the car especially because they are not Chevrolet branded or marked & once separated they are very unlikely to ever make it back to the car. Most any mechanic is going to make sure they do not leave tools in the vehicle they are servicing & away it goes.

Thanks for that...
The december build for a 67 threw me off as AFAIK there were only a couple of z28's built in december of 66.

No, they use a different bolt though.

There were Olympic Gold, Lemans Blue, and Hugger Orange cars with both white and black Yenko stripes I believe the only colors with a single stripe color were Daytona Yellow with black and Fathom Green with white. I am not sure if any non Vtop Ralley Green cars had a black stripe or not.
