I was thinking the emblems could be prominent on the back with the website above them just below the neckline, And then have the large CRG banner on the front possibly?

I like the emblems the way you mocked them up on the shirt. But the Z/28 may overshadow the SS and RS, enough for guys to want "the SS on top". Thats why it may look better to have :

RS      Z/28    SS

Plus the SS guys will like the SS out front, I would think....

It may look better to have the Z/28 emblem flanked by the RS and SS, like book ends? If I was good at photoshop I could cut and paste an image together

RS                   Z/28                  SS

How about instead of three pictures on the back,  just simply:

RS           SS           Z/28

Done like each of the emblems possibly?

Just an idea....

IMO, it seems like there are enough restored cars out there to go ahead and look for one that is already done. I can understand if a car just falls into your lap, you can't help but buy it, if its that great of a deal. It just seems like there are guys out there looking specifically for a unrestored cars, and this is shaping up more and more to be a niche market. Unless you over paid for a unrestored that was in shi**y condition, I would be surprised if you lost money when selling one. The Camaro/Car guy in me says leave it alone as much as you can and preserve the car in its original condition or sell it to someone seeking that condition, but in the end if taking the journey once again to see a car restored is what gets your rocks off, than its your car to do so.
I would somewhat agree with Gary (69Z28-RS) in response to paint condition or rusty areas, although Bills recent purchase of a low milage but poorly stored Z(burgandy) is on the borderline of where I would think you have to delve into certain areas just make sure it doesn't get worse.
 Have a good one!

I noticed the sway bar bushings, maybe they just dried out? seems like pretty low milage to necessitate replacement though. I also noticed the dip stick  and motor re-sprayed. It looks to me like it has chrome exhaust tips, and I didn't think those would have been available with the chambered exhaust, is that right? Also is looks like it has a short spoiler on it, seems like a 02D car would have had a full length spoiler by then. One other thing which I am unsure about, does anybody else out there have this much overspray on there car? I know anything could have taken place back then, but that seems like a ton of overspray. My car is pretty original and I don't have anywhere near that much overspray

I have been looking for a late spring 1111480 for about a year and studying a lot of photos. All the real ones I have identified have the turn marks on them. I have been looking at mostly unrestored ones though. I actually have one dated 8K30 for an early 69 if anyone out there has a late spring unrestored one in their stash of parts that they would like to trade?

Ok, I understand , thought there was a change mid production from the way the request was worded. Thank you for the clarity!
 I feel like I need to buy a whole project car or parts car just for the correct green tinted windshield, with the correct band at the top.
1299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 Original Glass Questions on: September 19, 2012, 07:42:29 PM
I don't have one, but you say "green" tinted. Was there more than one kind of tint available?
1300  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 Original Glass Questions on: September 19, 2012, 04:24:48 PM
Bummer about your windshield. Yes tinted glass was an option on the Z/28. You had 3 choices: None of it tinted, all of it tinted, or you could have just ordered the windshield tinted. Since it seems most of your glass has been replaced, unless you have some original paperwork it may be tough to figure out what was original to your car. I am unaware if one is more than the other as far as replacement costs are concerned. It wouldn't take extremely long to start looking for original glass though other than the windshield. I have been looking for an original tinted windshield and haven't had any luck.
I have an 08C car and my original glass is dated XV IV and back glass is dated NV. (june, feb, and jan of 69) So you could look for original glass that just predates your build date. Since your car has glass you could replace each piece as you find the correctly dated pieces. OR you could just order all of it reproduction of coarse.
hope this helps

ANYONE OUT THERE WITH AN ORIGINAL TINTED WINDSHIELD FOR SALE OR TRADE?

I wasn't sure how many guys were stamping the repops to make them look like originals
1302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 spiral shocks on: August 28, 2012, 08:48:19 AM

I have possibly located a pair of nos original spiral shocks.  My question is do these look like they are original? is there easy way to distinguish between the repops and originals? I have other close up pics if someone needs to see a particular stamp to be able to identify these as original. thanks for the help
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 metal vacuum line correct? on: August 23, 2012, 07:09:44 AM
I looked closer at an original one that I bought, and it looks like it is phosphate with a "C" stamped in it. anyone else have an original?
1304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 metal vacuum line correct? on: August 20, 2012, 02:53:40 PM
I think they are originally black.
1305  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Starter clicking before start on: August 14, 2012, 11:14:43 PM
Ok I am guessing you are actually running 15 x 8 wheels, but what size are the tires? how far do they sit inside and outside the wheel well?
