David,

My original, unrestored '69 Z28 (NOR) from 09C also has areas of gray, black, and even some outer body overspray on the low hanging areas.   the highest areas under the body generally are gray (ie. didn't get the black as much)...  the lowest areas hanging down got touched on the sides by orange *my outer body color*....  I just cleaned it up and left it as is..  although there are spots I'd like to convert the rust, I'm going to leave it as is until it's judged at least once...

Do you have any pics you could post?

Yes, I have some photos - too high resolution for posting here....  I can reduce the resolution, but not sure the required detail will show up?  Or maybe I can move them to photo bucket and post the addys here?   Give me a few days and I'll do one or both...  unless you have another suggestion..

Gary,

I think the Photobucket method would work out A-OK. 

Thanks!
David

 That looks like my 67 LOS engine bay!
I see it still has the original battery hold down bracket (dimples).
One thing I see though that doesn't look right is the clip that is mounted on the right front head. That looks to belong on the left rear side head fto secure the oil gauge line or oil pressure switch wire. The fuel line looks replaced.
