Originality / Re: 68 RS hinges and cover plate finish
« on: July 26, 2012, 10:48:50 PM »
There were two issues:
I did look at the report photos and they are a semi gloss black.
Mine show no sign of ever being painted even in concealed areas including the back side of the cover plates
where they wouldn't be exposed.

The other issue was the headlight housings or "buckets"
I have no reason to beleive that they are not original and they apear to have been a gold chromate finish
Can anyone confirm this

Does any one know what the proper finish would be for the RS headlight hinges and cover plates?
My car is an 04D Los Angeles build.I believe that the parts are original and look to have a natural finish
However all the photos I have been able to find show the parts as a semi gloss black
Also the headlight housings look to have had a gold plating and again photos I have seen of other cars show them as semi gloss black
Thanks in advance for your input

Mr. MacNeish's 1967-1968 Camaro Z/28 fact book shows the front edge of the stripe below the rear window as being straight.
The stencil kit that I purchased has it curving down slightly towards the back of the car
What's correct?
