You can pick up Jerry McNeish's book Distinctive 69 Z28 and SS. In the back there is a parts list with the correct finishes listed. Also First Gen Addict on this site is working on a 69 X66 car that is very original. He may be able to help you with colors.

If anyone is interested in the above engine, the guy who I bought an 837 alternator from has one freshly built. I have told him to send me pics of the stamp and price. If anyone is interested PM me and I will put you in touch with him.

The part to tweak is the cross bar that the rear of actuator attaches to, right?

As Charley suggested, in the past I've tweeked the bracket to get the door to close the last 1/4 inch.
Before I took the car apart to paint it both doors shut perfectly. I hate to tweak an original part to make the door fit....at this point anyway. But may end up doing just that.

I have adjusted every possible adjustment on the driver's side headlight door and the door still does not close up snug like the passenger side. I have to assume the shaft in the accuator too long. I am going to get another and put it in to see if this is better.

jacmac referred you to the  "Chassis Service Manual, look at 12-3 ,-12-4."..  not the AIM...

Thank you!!! Would be helpful if I paid attention to the help.

Thanks Jacmac

12-4  Fig. 3 "Headlamp Panel Adjustment"
Apparently we are looking at different reference materials. My AIM is setup UPC 12 with subsections A,B,C,D and then several sheets per section. I.e. sheet 12 B4. I can't find anything 12-4 figure 3. Thanks for the effort

Look at "FIG 3"

What sheet are you looking at?

If you have a Chassis Service Manual, look at 12-3 ,-12-4.This is in the electrical-body & chassis section.Has rszmjt said you would be amazed at how much movement there is for adjustment!

jacmac, I went to that section and don't see where I can adjust headlight doors for RS

The painted headlight door actually has movement on the inner aluminum door/hinge assembly. There are some captive cage nuts on the inner. If you loosen the screws slightly and the small body nuts toward the fender end, you would be surprised how much you can move them, including up and down.

Thanks I will look into that

I am doing some fine tune adjustments to my Gold car and would like to get the driver headlight door to close a little tighter. Before I took the car apart and painted it the doors were perfect. I have the passenger door adjusted great but the drivers doors needs just about a 1/4" more adjustment to close properly. I have adjusted the plate on the cross member all the way rearward and that is not getting me the last little bit of adjustment. The vacuum canisters are OER repops that work great but was wandering if I have one that has a shaft that is a little too long. Anyone had that problem, or is there another place where I should be looking to adjust to get this last little bit of adjustment?

Thanks

Lawrence

They are re-popped and not too bad except the wire color is not exactly correct.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z Clutch Safety switch on: July 14, 2014, 06:25:56 AM
My problem ended up being a frayed solenoid wire grounding out on the bolt that holds the "J" clip to the fire wall. So the switch was good.
