I stand corrected...that car looks great. Although it looks nothing like the color chip. The chip appears to have 80% black & 20% brown.

Burnished Brown done right really looks better than you would believe.
There are a few BB copos
HERE is a BB RS Double COPO with liquid tire chain option...



I LIKE that, hard to call that Monkey Poop Brown.  Thanks

what is Liquid Tire Chain ?

scott, my car is burnished brown and it is one of the coolest colors out there. it looks completely different depending on the sun. unless they pulled the car apart when they changed the color, the side cowl should still be burnished brown. let me know

sadly the car is white everywhere, it wasn't a great job at that.

we are fixing everything especially the paint.  I would LOVE to see more pictures of your car. from the little picture under your male it looks very awesome.

can you tell me about your paint job ? i.e., did you use ant special techniques under the paint or over? is it metallic at all  ?

I'm extremely interested

Here are all of the RPO's (Option List). The RPO numbers are found on the left hand column. You can also find many of the RPO's in the AIM (Assembly Instruction Manual). The above pic is a pg from the '69 AIM. If you do not have this I strongly suggest you buy one. Especially since you are restoring your car.

Hi All,

i just wanted to update you on the progress of my restoration.

after 16 weeks, the engine is back from being rebuilt, the DZ carb is working flawlessly, the M22 is completely rebuilt and so clean you could eat off of it, the rear end has been rebuilt, painted and the drive shaft balanced cleaned up.

the rear end, brakes (including the lines), trans, motor, fuel tank and lines have all be put back into the car and we are about a week away from starting the motor. We are putting the radiator core support and radiator in this week and connecting all the hoses and fuel lines to the carb.

Im very excited about getting to this point, I really wanted to thank you all for your amazing help with my little Z28 !

I think the date on the trim tag is first week of May 1969

it is a Van Nuys tag (not Los Angeles) and it says  05A
