    I am working on a 1979 Z28 restoration. I am trying to get it back to original as much as possible. The car had been bastardized with parts from 78-80 when I got it. I have finally gotten it back to mostly original.

    I do not have the build sheet, only the invoice. I am stuck on the drip rails and the door edge guards. I know that the windshield and rear window molding are supposed to be black. Here are my questions:

    Is the trim around the T-Top supposed to be black or polished?
    Is the trim around the driver/passenger window supposed to be black or polished?
    Did the car come factory with door edge guards?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I have attached the original invoice for reference.

    The upper doors chrome is part of the z21 trim accent and it’s not black. The door edge guards are optional (B93). The only blacked out trim I recall is the front and rear window trim on z28s

    Thank you. Because you didn't specifically address the T-Tops, I want to make sure. Is the beta edge that goes all the way around the T-Top supposed to be black?
