The assm manual is a good source for how the assm line was supposed to build a car. After studying lots of cars over the years you will find the assm line worker didn't always use the known correct hardware. If you know a known correct car built close to yours, study it. If you were the first person to take it apart, use that style. I know a 12k original 69 Camaro that has different hardware on each side of the car...Joe

The horn bracket bolts on '69s were clear zinc only on early cars, after about November 1968 they were manganese phosphate.

Agree 100% with what Lloyd stated here. One of the biggest restoration hardware goofs on 69's is guys using zinc horn bolts. AMK includes them in there kit and is not correct but for a few very early cars.
The photo here is of Dan's 69 Z "Mosportgreen66" Do not remember the build week.

You would lose points in Legends Judging in 2014 on a 5A car if you didn't have the zinc bolts. Ask me how I know. I think that may have changed now, but not sure.
