Dave, Yes the backs are black (I assume dip primed, hard to tell, I do not see any drips).  I looked closely at the edge paint coverage.  It appears the paint was applied from the top only.  All edges facing up have the color, all edges facing down are still black.  The sides fade from better coverage on the upper portion fading and showing more black towards the bottom.  This is consistent on both sides.  The sections that were clamped in the fixture do not have any body color on the edges.

Which means the paint fixture must have clamped the inside (screw hole portions) with the covers in their intended mounted positions, then painted with a single swipe with gun angled down. IMO the fixture must be lower than arm height to get the paint coverage that I see. (I tried to get a pic)

I would guess the TT is the "original" one based on the Butternut yellow overspray on the pass inner qtr panel (pc 31).  VIN swap is run away time.

Glad to be of help here. Looks like Lloyd has some detail work to do too :)

I'm glad I did not put the RS box away last night :)

John, That back seat was murder for anything other then sitting upright, painful memories.

I pulled these off an RS back in the early 80s, they are very patiently waiting for me to restore the car they were saved for. Interesting the black appears to be the base coat (same as underside) and the color coat is just a light coat that did not extend all the way to the corners.  IMO They do not look like brush paint applied after color coat.

I think flat, the ridged ones showed up later in 69

They are just fans blowing air, barely worked in the best of times.

I would agree with the oil residue statement.  With grease in the speedo cable, there has been a mist of oily residue on the ones I have removed in the past.  A gentle cleaner of diluted dish cleaner (oil and grease cutter) like Dawn is called for, no scrubbing or rubbing though. Spray on and rinse off.

Richard, the starter would probably a regular one, aluminum nose, bolts in-line, mostly 110831, but could be 1108420 (see this post  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=2779.0;all ).

Please let me know if you are planning to switch to the smaller flexplate, so I can stand down :) 

PS, I thought all the TH350's received the 153 flex plates too, but I do not have any 1st hand knowledge.  I do have the larger flywheel on my manual L48.

I can't find anything on the internet for that part number, but other covers with similar part numbers are 80s to early 90s.  I posted this cover a while ago asking for what it was an someone told me a TH350, but i cannot find that now :(
