Hans, good question. As the car will be judged I don’t want to defend a seemingly “non-normative” part or worse take a points deduction and be informed of that deduction once judging results are received following the event with no ability to appeal (see Chick’s judging experience). In the Camaro hobby there are no judging guides/manuals so we rely on the knowlege of individual judges. To de-risk judging, where I have found non standard parts (or finishes etc) that I believe to be original (another example is the wheel well plugs) I have decided to replace them with the generally accepted standard part. Replacing the brake line clip is an example of that approach.

Lloyd, just noticed a BU rear listed on ebay, has a frame-mounting type of retainer clip in this location - similar to the one Rick (HOT302) posted back on page 1....... although it's not bolted up.

Thanks Tim. For the sake of another data point I'm adding photos of the eBay listed diff. The seller ( BDCAMARO ) states "Original 1969 Camaro Z28 L78 BU 12 Bolt Posi Rear End All original as it came on the GM assembly line...with original dated GM 3:73 gears and Eaton position unit....". IMO the diff appears reasonably original except maybe the axle vent.

Nice!   What sort of finish did you apply to the clip?

The clip was vapor blasted, so its unplated steel, then treated with rust preventative like Boeshield.
