I agree that it would be nice to have a correct list of finishes.  It seems that Jerrys book and the list it is compared to when you search this site have conflicting info.  One might say natural metal and the other says semi gloss black, or one says the  jack is painted grey verses silver/gold cadium finish for example.  Also does powder coating the subframe and front suspension in the 30% gloss look correct or do you need to paint as original?  I am doing my Z10 and have seen them with white underside and most with black.  Wish there was a universally accepted color and sheen chart and maybe suggestions as to what products others have used to achieve the correct look.  This is a great site to learn from but everyone seems to push jerrys book, are all of his finishes accepted as factory correct?  Thanks for all your help.

They talk about this on Team Camaro.  White under a white car (including Z10) is usually overspray during the manufacturing/painting process.  I only know this due to some recent searches for other things on TC.  But one gets caught up in interesting threads... ;-)  I was also checking to see if my car was/is the original color.  And figuring out what color it currently resembles (my trim tag was gone when I bought it in '83).

Powder coating does not fly in restorations if accuracy is one's goal. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=5559.0

I have read about over spray under the car but I see some restored with the body color underneath and there is a Z10 selling tonight on Ebay that claims 26,000 original miles and it has all white under the car.  The paint is really old and looks original so I doubt it has be changed since new.  Just making sure I put the car back to the way it came.  thanks

Thanks Tom, I have done a bunch of searches but you clarified a few things.  It sounds like the Z11 and Z10 had a lot of over spray under them because the rockers were painted white instead of black like SS's were.  That would explain why some of the cars I have been looking at have the white underside.  I have to rely on you guys because I bought a car that was media blasted 17 years ago and has sat since, never assembled.  So its like a huge jig saw puzzle and I have figure out where everything goes and what finish it should be.  It makes it much easier having my 68 to drive while I do a long term restoration on this one.

Guess I should be thanking both Tom and flyingskibiker after reading through the replies.
