This w/e I saw a restored 69 Z-28 and half way from the center towards the passenger side of the trunk he had a red paint stripe on the trunks rubber weather seal about 1/4" wide..Is this a correct detail or just another detail touch by a car guy...He also had the weather seal cut in-line with the red paint stripe.

I have seen this a lot but only on show restored Chevelle's, El Camino's  & Impalas so thought it was a full size thing or at least not a Norwood Fisher thing.

That's called "restoration graffiti".  :-(

It's normally a light grease pencil mark (IIRC, not red). Fisher used it to center the trunk ws. Not very visible, per design.
And very rarely is the ws truly centered.

I have seen this faint mark on two survivors, a 68Z and a 69Z. Both of those cars as Kurt mentioned had a faint mark approximately halfway between the center of trunk and the right upper side. I assumed it was some type of mark for cutting the w/s to a desired length as both marks seemed to be at a half point of total length.

Thanks  for the clarification..It did make you notice the ws ..It just looked odd to see the weather stripping off-centered as with most cars being centered..

Eddie, the trunk w/s did vary in the start/stop position but most of the NOR cars I have looked at did not normally have the start/stop ends of the w/s at the latch. It was usually left of the latch. Just my observations and what others have said over the years.

The center of the weatherstrip had an orange mark which was offset to the right on quite a few original cars.

My untouched/original 02D Norwood '69 has no marking on the upper area of the weatherstrip, and the end joint is centered on the latch.

X3 on the hat!  Grin You started something now John......
Here is a picture of the mark on a 69Z survivor I referred to earlier.
Notice the mark is just to the left of the right side stripe and the mark is in the middle of the OAL.
I have the pic too large so you have to arrow it to the left to just see the white of a stripe.
Very similar to what James showed.
