I am currently rebuilding a non numbers matching 69 SS to what I want it to be. The car will be white with red Z stripes and red Deluxe Interior with woodgrain dash. I currently have 3 questions. If this car had been built by the factory what color would the upper dash be (between the dash pad and windshield)? what color would the steering column have been? I assume that the bottom of the car should be body color up to the firewall which should be a underhood black up to the top of the firewall. thanks for the help.

All that would be red. The top of the dash had a matte finish [suede] acomplished by adding a flattening agent to the paint.

The bottom of a 1st gen Camaro was never body color. The floor pan started out dipped or e-coated black and acquired primer and body color overspray during the production process. The wheel wells were undercoated after assembly; some areas received black touch-up.

Thanks for the help. Is the black finish on my replacement panels the e-coat that you mentioned?

Thanks, I think I will go ahead and prime and paint the underbody while it is all a part. It won't be factory, but none of them had 454 and 5 speed either. Thanks again.
