Thanks guys. I spoke to Billy today at White Post and discussed this. He said he would take it back and replate for me. I have the correct cover so I will send it back for the Gold Dichromate.

Good news Lawrence! I'm just curious why they would have done that to begin with???
Good question. I think one of the guys in the back was just not paying attention and put the cap in the zinc basket. They did my Gold Z MC and brake booster and was very happy with their work. John Z likes this group which is where I got their name. Overall I would recommend them. The Master Cylinder looks good.

Regarding the design of the trim ring, I think that the clip design was a mid year change over. The original paint Silver Z i bought has the fastening tabs all the way around the trim ring and that car is a 05C car. However, I can't confirm the trim rings are all original. The car has the original spare and wheel in the trunk and the wheel has trim ring marks all the way around the wheel. But still does not confirm my suggestion.

I think the wheels are going to get scratched by the trim rings regardless of what you do. Just roll with it Wink

I only own one  and it has it..saw a post saying extra T. Thought I'd inquirer...do all Nor 69's have a T under the plate..I don't know. Do most?, do some ?, do not that many? I love to know my family car.
 
The "BPT" stamps occur randomly on Norwood cars. Some are behind the power brake booster if the car has that option. Some are behind the heater box etc. It is nice to see them on cars because you know the car has not had a rattle can under the hood. They come in green or orangish red in color. I have never seen an original car with both colors, but they could be out there. Alot of guys use both cars when replicating them.

I got my master cylinder back from White Post Restoration today. I told them that I wanted 100% original piece and got the cap back in white zinc. I was expecting gold dichromate. The car is a Dec 68 build. Which is correct? Gold dichromate or white zinc?
Thanks

Lawrence

Both look good to me, cowl tag for sure is original and never off the body.

I agree

The bolts are same as the ones I saw on the 69 Z28.
Which Z copo?
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 12, 2014, 10:32:00 PM
On second count I have eight "C" head fasteners and two "RSW" fasteners. I am missing the two shouldered fasteners. Let me know if you think these "C" fasteners can be intake manifold bolts.

No shoulder. I will post a picture in a bit
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 12, 2014, 10:37:23 AM
Guys,

Has anyone seen an original intake manifold bolt with a bolt head that is a "C" with three radial lines? My Silver Z came with a bucket of fasteners and there are these fasteners with the "C" that are the right number and the right specs as the intake manifold bolts. The car had incorrect intake manifold bolts in it when I got it. My original 67 Vette L79 has these type of fasteners installed in the intake manifold so I am thinking these may be correct for the Silver Z.

Let me know your thoughts

Lawrence

Great looking car. Love the cars that are different.
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z/28 on eBay... What a Car! on: January 12, 2014, 10:30:52 AM
Pretty car for sure. As the others have said a few inconsistencies regarding originality when the car was painted. When I see these things I am concerned that bigger items were not done right not knowingly by the restorer. Original sheet metal is nice.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Silver Z pictures from 1971 with second owner on: January 11, 2014, 07:18:12 PM
It just doesn't get any better than that. Very nice!! I was lucky enough to make contact with the original owner of my 69 Hugger Orange Z and he sent me original polaroid pictures of it when it was new and then the car he purchased next. A Hugger 70 Yenko Deuce with him leaning against the fender.
Lawrence, like me I'm sure it made your day when you received them.   Congrats!
Yes very happy to get those pics. I hope he has others to send.
