Mike, Kudos, Glad you got Full Points for the trim rings !!

This debate about the different style trim ring has been going on for years, and will probably go on.
 I personally think the 4 clip style was the assembly line installed trim ring when the Z28 was assembled and the full serration type was a superceded/updated design trim ring. I don't honestly know how #9796696 serrated trim ring could have been used in 1969, that part number never even showed up until the 72-74 GM parts book. BTW 67 Corvette used the same 4 clip trim ring and the GM parts book for Corvette shows the #9796696 trim ring as the superceded number for the 4 clip trim ring.

JMO of Course.

That is good news, your car showed very well, great attention to details. Now I will be checking for the mail early. Was it scored as you expected? George

I was going to borrow a couple of trim rings from my sister's 67 Vette but they are such a pain to install correctly I decided to go with what I had.

One thing I did notice in looking at cars judged in previous years, is that some of the standards have changed over time. And that's OK but I would still like to see the standards written down like in the NCRS books. I know that will be a huge undertaking, so I will offer my help in any way to be part of the solution.

Keep us posted on written standards progress. I'd love to know how that works out...
