A word of caution: The Plastic body of the switch can be very, very fragile. (If it has a melamine or plastic body?)
Careful is correct, NO pressure can be applied to the case- Crack!

Picture anyone??

Post a picture. I have some ideas, but own Automatics so it would help.

I agree the differences can be frustrating. The warm soapy water is a start. Try finishing the hose with a tire dressing that could bring back some of the color. The ends could be trimmed  to find a fresh end diameter.  The straps clean up well with a splash of laq thinner and a clean rag. Keep the thinner away from the hoses it will wipe off the color coding stripes.

Thought factory wheels were painted black on the back, service wheels were grey?

CBTN Figure 17-9.
The way I read the painting notes:

PLAIN K-H Part No E-82277 Cust PN _____
Coat with Rustproofing Oil: K-H Part No E-82278 Cust Part No. 3958480
Gray Primer K-H Spec B-3352: K-H Part No E-82279   Cust Part No. 3966934
Same as E-82279 except tape  identify for Chevrolet Service: K-H Part No E-82280

This relates to the 69 AD rally.

I assume you guys are hashing out the SS AO/YA wheels at this point. Does anyone have a copy of the CBTN for 70-75 & does it contain the K-H drawing with notes on it that might clarify.

 Shocked
I could not believe it, I had a frame hanging on the wall,,,matched the reported dealer! My state records search ended in a dead end in 1975.
Bothell Brothers Chevrolet-Cadillac INC. of Auburn Washington, Dealer Code # 47 Zone # 42.
4/21/1969

Dealer History: Bothell was born in Seattle on March 28, 1930, to the late Howard Sr. and Dorothy Bothell, founders of the Bothell Chevrolet Company in Auburn that later became Bothell Brotherís Chevrolet. Bothell and his brother, Howard Bothell Jr., took over the family business, eventually changing the name to Auburn Chevrolet. The brothers sold the family business in 2001. The dealer is still open as Auburn Chevy.
 
Looking forward to search for many more dealer items at the local swap meets.

By George, you're right!  I zoomed in on this 1969 Z/28 from the '69 model year launch in '68 and notice the tires are Firestone Sport Car 200s...

Wow look at the differences...
No drip rail trim, no 302 on the ZL2 hood, rear stripes on the deck lid edge, rear stripes to rear glass trim is 3-4 inches.


Black stripes on a NON vinyl top car, probably been discussed before as found in some of the pics at the GM photo store. I like the combo.

There is a lot a of area to cover, hence the weather thing.  There is also a lot of junk and people with junk that want a lot of money.  I go with just the outside chance I might find something.  One year there was a junkyard there with alternators and dists.  I was looking through a pile and he asked what numbers I was looking for and told him.  He said he's sure they had some of those back and the yard, but he could only bring so many.  I lost his number and can't remember what the name of the place was.  I'd love to find a bunch of rare number alts. and dizzys.

I am headed to Portland Thurs-Sat. Prepp'g for wet weather. For sure not a lot of deals to be had in my opinion, but the meet is the biggest in the NW.

I bet the 'yard' was American Classics in Vancouver, they know the numbers game & the rare gold is lone gone.

I also would like to hear about actual drop top owners experiences with the products out there.
