I am assuming that the pciture you posted is from your original, unmolested Z-28.
If that is the case, I couldn't help but notice that in the picture, the axle housing lis natural (grey). Seems like in previous posts, when this had been discussed, the consensus was that the differential and rear end assembly was painted a semi gloss black. Am I remembering correctly? I much prefer the natural phosphate grey look to the semi gloss black painted rear ends.
Can you offer any clarification?
That's not my car in the photo - don't recall where I grabbed it, but the configuration of the spring leaves is correct. My rear axle was originally painted "chassis black", but virtually all of it is gone now - it was cheap black paint, and didn't last long.
All 69's had the stamped parking brake cable supports (see the Assembly Manual, UPC 5 , Sheet C2).
