I have not been on the site for quite some time, so I have some catching up to do.
At the time I restored my car I did not have any pic documentation of unrestored 69's to know what color to paint the lug wrench. The previous owner painted mine high gloss black (along with about everything else black on the car).
I based the color on Jerry MacNeish's book, The Definitive 1969 Camaro Z/28 - SS396 Fact Book. In Appendix E, he stated the bumper jack base was semi-gloss gray (which mine is), but I guess I was not sure about the lug wrench and painted it the same.
Can some one post a pic of an unrestored original? That would be great.
I'll correct mine.
PS: This is the only pic I have of an unrestored jack and pole. Itís from the original owner of a 1970 Nova (a great original car, in perfect condition!), but I can not see the lug wrench.
Note the Argent Siler overspray on the semi-gloss black on the inside of the rim. This is also typical on 69 Camaros with Rally wheels, and if I am not mistaken, on all 1st Gen's with Rally wheels.
