What is the correct finish for the tie rod end adjuster sleeves? How about the clamps, bolts and lock-nuts?

Let see what others say,,,
but, I just pulled the Parts out from under my 69 Los Pace Car and cleaned them up in a solvent tank..
Sleeve=Natural, w/ some yellow dabs
Clamps=Natural
Bolt=black oxide
Nut=silver cad
I was all preserved by dirt, grime, gunk, oil & under coating

Attached are a few pictures of my original tie rod sleeves.  They were a natural finish.  I replaced my rusty nuts and bolts with black oxide plated bolts, and silver cadmium plated hex lock nuts shown, from AMK Products.

I would like to confirm what the original bolt head markings were for this application.  If you still have the original bolts and nuts on your '69 tie rods, please post pictures and let us know the build date and VIN of your Camaro. 

This will help to identify points in time when the Norwood or Los Angeles assembly plants may have utilized the same supplier’s nuts and bolts, or show that hardware from various suppliers was used.

Thanks!  Smiley

All of the nuts and bolts in the steering linkage (tie rod sleeve clamps) came from Chevrolet-Buffalo already installed as part of the steering linkage assembly as-shipped; all the assembly plants did was to tighten them after setting the toe-in.
