1.  Type of Car:  1969 Camaro RS Z/28
2.   VIN:  124379L52930
3.   Build date:  04B  (Van Nuys)
4.   Interior Code:  713
5.   Z23:  NA
6.   Steering wheel definitely has a grained texture between the two permeter lines.

Also, I have a '69 Chevelle SS.  It also had the grained, textured wheel (01A build date, Kansas).   I purchased a reproduction wheel for it and was puzzled why it was smooth as both the Z and the SS had textured wheels.  All makes some sense now.

Have you tried metal polish and a polishing wheel?  Might make is too shiny, but should clean it up.   I've seen other trim components clean-up real well using metal polish.

I would not glas bead or blast them - it will leave a dull, incorrect finish is my guess, though you could always try a small section to see what happens.

Is your core support bolts also 5/8" as mine are 1/2"?  And yes, there is a spring washer for the core support.  I think mine were too weathered to save.

Hogdaddy - Good deal on the fit.  Now I'm curious to what the diameter of the bolt is.  Do you know?   Is it 5/8" or 1/2"? 

It's also clear the GM used different suppliers through the years and even during the same year as the same plant.   So long it met the bolt spec, it was probably on the approved list.

I was going to say that the subframe bolts have quite a bit bigger diameter than the core support bolts.   Go try this - take one of your core support bolts and see if it screws into a body mount.  I'd bet it doesn't and that should answer the question whether your's came with all the same bolts.

Here's pictures of my original bolts.  These were taken before I had them re-plated.  They've since been replated (black phosphate) and look brand new.

Also, if you're looking for reproductions, AMK Products appears to carry them.

Reference page 30 for 3914816 for the Core Support Bolt:  http://www.amkproducts.com/Catalog_PDF/24-38.pdf
or here's a direct link to the part:  http://www.amkproducts.com/bulk3.asp?part=B%2D10079

And reference page 23 for 3912533 for the Body Mount Bolts:  http://www.amkproducts.com/Catalog_PDF/6-23.pdf
or here's a direct link to the part:  http://www.amkproducts.com/bulk3.asp?part=B%2D10180

However, the head markings for the body mount bolts differ from what were factory installed on my Camaro which are R - B  - W not "A" as per the repo.  The "A" could be correct, but they were not used on my '69 Camaro assembled in Van Nuys.

Hope this helps.

According to the 1969 Camaro Assembly Manual, Page 41, the Core Support Bolt PN is 3914816 while the Subframe Bolt PN is 3912533.   As the PN are different, it's most likely the actual bolts are different.

I'll post pictures of mine in a little while.

I am pretty sure those are the core support bolts, not the subframe bolts.   Subframe bolts do not have the "built-in" washer.

I have pictures of both and will try to post later.
