Originality / Re: gas tank straps - color and anti sqeak strips
« Last post by 68camaroz28 on Today at 01:39:53 AM »
My question is about original color for gas tank straps for 1968. Were the straps natural steel color or painted black? Also, were there rubber anti-squeak strips between the straps and the tank? Finally, was it common for a rubberized mat to be present between the tank and the trunk floor in addition to the rubber strips shown in the AIM? This forum is excellent and I use it often as a supplement to the restoration books and the AIM. Thanks in advance.

Late reply but for future searches. The straps were dip painted semi-gloss black primer. No strips of material were between tank and straps, and there was no rubberized mat or other material other than the strips called out in the AIM. This according to our NOR 68 and other observations.

Agree, agree! I quickly looked at the stamp earlier and said yep that's it but after looking back now with Jon's comment that bracket is not for our 68Z. Me bad & sorry I mislead you!

That looks like an original GM bracket but not for a '67-'68 Z. I think it was used on some later 409 engines and possibly something else like a '65 396. Both have the GT stamps but the 409 one is thicker above the adjusting slot and the Z bracket is thinner up there and more equal to the thickness below the slot.

I wanted to do that, but I'm not sure how to find it? Any lesson appreciated !!
You could click on your Tx-Z 302 to go to your profile and then hit the icon to show your post or complete a search to find. I remembered it so just went to the 2nd page of Originality threads and there it was. No problem as I know I sure learned a lot and am still learning how to do something.

I'm sure the occasional wrong part got installed, but it seems like a lot of it these days is people trying to convince themselves they have something they do not using the assembly line error argument.

Looks real, but unless they found a way to time travel, wasn't originally installed in N509257. Probably meant L509257.
