Sorry for the goof-up my 69 AIM is not clear and I was guessing. HuhHuh?

Shown in the 67-68 AIM U63 A1 but not shown in 69 AIM. Not sure that the 69 had them. The 69 AIM revision 1 shows, "carry over not removed" HuhHuh?
Corvette suppliers have them.

Sorry to belabor this issue but I just can not determine where the frame to inner fender ground strap is to be located.  I have viewed the photos provided but still can not determine to on location on my 1969 Z/28.  Can someone provide some more photos for this strap location and maybe some measurements/distances from other body parts?  Thanks - John

Go back and review Reply#16 of this thread posted by jk1969Z28...  It shows both the strap location on the inner fender, and where it connects to the frame.  NOTE:  What may not be clear re this topic, is that the strap is NOT in the engine compartment; instead it is inside the passenger side front wheel well area.   The photos shown in reply#16 exactly match where the ground strap was located on my 09C Z28..

Thanks 69Z28-RS, I now can visualize where the strap should be installed.  Unfortunately I do not have any bolt holes in the inner fender (could be a re-pop) nor the frame.  My Z is a 02D LA build so maybe like other members have stated this fourth strap was not installed there.  Thanks again for getting me looking in the correct location.

Based on what others have wrote, this particular feature (4th ground strap) was one of those 'hit and miss' features that may not have been applied 100% of the time... (who's gonna inspect inside the wheel well?).. Smiley

Eldon - thanks for the photo.  I have that strap install, it's the strap installed on the other side of the frame rail connecting to the inner fender ahead on the front wheel I was inquiring about
