Thanks Darrell.  I think there should be a third stripe.  Hard to see, but might be there?

Thanks for the information!

Any chance there could be more than 2 stripes?

Thank You Gary!  Sorry, I guess I must have forgotten to reply to this earlier.  Merry Christmas!  Glad the driveshaft turned out good.

Summarizing from my post to a different thread re my driveshaft (I had previously posted that I'd cleaned and painted my driveshaft long ago, but that driveshaft was from my Nomad, not the Z28..  thankfully!)..  So I found my original driveshaft and cleaned, measured it and photographed it.
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=14017.15

Car:   09C (late) '69 Z28 with 302, M20 and 3.73 posi rear gear (all original to the car) owned since 1976, not driven since 1980.

Drive shaft length:  49-5/8" from U-joint center to U-joint center.

Paint stripes:   Orange and White stripes at the 11-13" mark from the Yoke end; yellow splash around 10" along...

Looks likes only two stripes but it's real hard to tell for sure. I can try to post some pics for you.

Just recently at the MCACN show I had lunch with one of my Cleveland Chevelle car buddies and his friend. In talking with them I found out they both worked at the Chevrolet plant in Parma Ohio back in the mid to late 60's. My buddy is about 68 ish now.
 They said they were both involved with drive shaft's and balancing, they made shafts for more than several Chevrolets'.
I specifically ask if they knew anything about the strips, they explained that when doing the code stripes, and while the shaft was still in the ballancing fixture,  the guy might hold several paint brushes at a time while the shaft turned in the fixture.
 So the one reason to post all this, they both indicated to me that one the the 3 strips was a shift code. If it was consistent, who knows ? And if not, that may explain why you'll see only two stipes at times.

I wanted to add a little more info while doing the de-rusting process.

Casting numbers







Paint markings from yoke side down - Orange  Green  White





Some type of green dab of paint below the stipes.  Will know more once rust conversion is finished.

Still soaking but I am starting to see the paint stripes better and better..  Also looks like whoever it was doing the painting grabbed it while it was still wet.
