Ace, this may sould a little confusing, but here is the way I understand it. In 69, all ss cars had a black grille, and all standard Z's had a silver grille. All rs cars had a black grille, except the black Z. It seems that Chevy made the RPO Z27 and RPO Z28 "primary" options, and the Z22 was a "secondary" option, that could be added. In the case of the black rs Z, since RPO Z28 had "priority" over RPO Z22, they were able to leave the rs grille silver, to break up the colors on an all black car, since the Z28 option included the silver grille. But, on a black ss/rs, the Z27 option included the black grille, and since RPO Z27 had "priority" over Z22, the grille was black. Therefore the black rs Z/28 was an exception, but still fit within the RPO priority guidelines. Make sense?
