12A LA Build...
Is a Black Phosphate finish baked into the metal? If so, you are probably correct. If it is BP It shouldn't have lost its color right? 

Phosphate is a chemical process and not a baked on process. No I do not think it should have lost its color like the thread and underside show if it was a phosphate bolt originally. I have taken rusted bolts and upon removing the rust (evaporust) it is nomally quite evident to still see the dark gray phosphate appearance. Your bolt Marty appears to have been coated with something while it was in place (threaded in) hence the upper portion of thread and underside so zinc looking. Maybe someone sprayed some coating on it while it was threaded into something other than the car? Just my thoughts!?!?

I have gone through a lot of bolts/screws comparing head markings (originals) to the repros which do not match many times but we all know there were many suppliers. As you assumed Marty and I'm with ya, I have not noticed or remember that head marking on the bolt you posted so I will assume also they are not original.  Grin I have mine bagged but will have to dig through the finished and non-finished bolt bags to find. Memory tells me RBW was a predominant one.

Marty, that anchor bolt sure looks like a zinc coating under the captured washer... When was your Camaro built?

This is one of the horn bolts on our 01B 68 Camaro and it is zinc.

I have a 6A, & 9A NOR Z28's with Firestone SC 200 tires.

I have seen one late NOR Z with a Firestone SC 200 spare tire. At the time I thought it had been changed but know differently now.

Cool thread, I have a butternut '69 convertible SS black top that I just adore. Since you are kinda my big bro { 01B - 01C } after seeing this thread what is your opinion about the tire pressure sticker? and the chances of this being a real Z28?

Well you sure have a lot of info that supports it is a Z/28 but as others have mentioned its always wise to proceed with caution. Concerning the sticker, I'm no expert but over the years we have all seen some weird things like a AM radio mast on a AM-FM radio equip. car or std. seat belts in a custom int. equip. car or a factory grind out and restamp of a pad so anything is possible and it might be just a simple defect that someone placed the wrong sticker or glove box door on.  Bottom line, you will probably never know.
713  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 B.U. rear end on: January 14, 2012, 08:23:50 AM
I've been searching what seems like a lifetime for a B.U. rear end for my late 1969 Z28. I've found them but the dates are never close enough. Can anyone suggest somewhere to look for a rear end, i've tried ebay, team camaro, supercar registry, no luck.
How long you been looking? Reason for asking as a part like that might take awhile as you are finding out. I'd put a wanted ad in Hemmings Motor News, check out Craig's list constantly, and place wanted ad's in any type of local "auto locator". Did you put a "want to purchase" ad in Team Camaro? Get aggressive and enjoy the hunt....

Hi John and good luck with the purchase if not solidified yet. Read your post in the beginning but then did not follow up until now and was pleasantly surprised to see our 01B NOR 68Z has another sibling as our engine was built/born the same day. I have a restoration thread going that you might find interesting concerning our 68Z.

If you check websites like the Corvette Forum and Team Camaro you will probably find Jerry. Just a first class guy and like us, a car guy additionally. Did three radios for us and just top notch with outstanding communication. Just cannot say enough great things about him. Here is his website:

I was just under a 68 Z/28 survivor this week observing things for our restoration and the only color other than the body overspray underneath was black. Our Oct. 69 Norwood car is a TN never undercoated Camaro and other than the Lemans Blue overspray it's all black. I honestly do not remember working on a car with a gray bottom but that does not mean they do not exist as I'm sure they do somewhere.
717  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 upper control arm shaft finish on: January 01, 2012, 10:21:52 PM
As Mike has mentioned they were black. JohnZ communicated in the past the control arm, bushings, and dog bone were painted as an assembly.
718  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: ?Fake POP? on: January 01, 2012, 10:12:21 PM
Maybe the question should be if a GM employee purchased a car what was the process as maybe there is nothing wrong with the POP or engine/trans #'s. Maybe JohnZ knows if an employee purchased a car was it possible to have the date filled out prior to car being completed/built.

I have used a few and this one is the best and I mean just outstanding! Triple Plate of course! They will give you a price over the phone but when parts arrive they take a photo and send you a positive quote with the pic of what they received. You approve and they plate within two weeks. Very well run business. Sure beats when the other plater we were using was 3 to 4 months and the cost was higher.

Semi gloss to flat black. Did alot of research on this and it seems like the early car are black and later cars are bare . Just getting done with a three year resto on a 12d fathom blue 68 z. The bracket is black. Maybe Chick will chime in he is restoring a early car also. John
Scoop, our car (01B Nor) had the assembly in question painted but ours is for sure two shades of black as John listed. The clutch and brake pedal brackets are what I would say is the 30% gloss black (satin shade or what John listed as flat) but the main housing bracket they assemble in has more shine which seems to be like other 60% gloss black (semi-gloss) parts found on the car. Interesting to note both clutch and brake pedal brackets where the rubber pedal cover goes on were black yet the opposite end where is assembles in the main housing had a few inches of no paint coverage. The center shaft that assembles those two shafts in the main housing is also bare metal. Hope that helps! If you had paint on yours then go with it.
