 Original hole for vin was cut out when stamped and has rounded edges and corners. The pic of this car clearly shows sharp corners for the vin window.

Oh it took about 14 hours to fine tune them over two days.

I have the assembly manual and two small instructional booklets, one is for 1967 Camaro wiring and the other is specifically for RS HL wiring and it has a trouble shooting guide but regarding this, simply says a switch is bad. But I'd be happy to read anything pertaining to this type of issue so please forward or tell me where to find.
It worked, and then stopped and its both sides on the same motion. Heck of a coincidence.
I physically engaged the limits switches and it did not stop the "cycling".

Rick67, I had found that link in my earlier searches and those pics were very helpful on initial assembly! I was amazed at how easily everything fell into place. I looked up the trouble shooting chart and it says:
"Double bounce is usually caused by slop in the door bushings or slop in the drive washers. This will not damage the Retro Electro motors." Everything is brand new, bushings, bolts, etc ... the doors are nice and snug and have no extra play. The actuating arms also have no play. I moved everything manually during set up to ensure everything was aligned properly and all four switches were engaging, and it worked perfectly ... once.

  David so you had initial success. I am electrically challenged so this was a big project. Mine were all there but unhooked and the switches in the glove box the relays all unplugged and all the wires tucked away so you couldn't see them. A daunting task. I had a wiring diagram in the paperwork I received that was from two previous owners ago. Yeah pretty alien to me. So I started searching and found Team Camaro and GRG. Through different threads I found bits an pieces of info. Finally figuring out where everything went. I documented and took pics as I put mine together. My first assumption was that I would get them back together and they wouldn't work. But lo and behold both doors opened but kept running. (familiar) The most common problem with the doors are bad grounds and the doors not fully activating the switches. Everything to do with your headlights right to the high beam switch can cause the doors to malfunction. Even a burnt out high beam can cause problems. That being said check all the grounds,  switches, headlights. hope you used the star washers as they bite into the metal. Next is switch contacts. (this was my problem) With someone else on the headlight switch turn them on. When opened and still running push the door firmly against the open switch. If it stops then the switch or switches need some adjustment. Mine have been trouble free for 6 years so that is as far as I ever had to go.

Check the double bounce in the retro electric trouble shooting part. Another cause could be both doors not making full contact with the open limit switch. Some shimming of the switches may be required.

 Seat covers look parchment. But they are pretty new looking along with the door panels. Looks like an am radio which should put the antenna on the rear.

  You may want to straighten those headlight doors a bit. Had to do mine. Bit of work but not hard.

This is a sept 68 block which is why the partial vin is stamped on it.

 Pad stamp of my former 69.

 The ME is a 1967 327 210 HP motor with powerglide trans. There would be no partial VIN for this application. Awesome sounding car though. the only difference between 210 HP and 275 + HP is a set of heads and a 4 barrel carb add a little cam. All easily found online in date correct stuff. Or just drive it the way it is.

 Lace paint jobs were old news, fender flares and shoe box hood scoops were garish. Gas prices forced most to be put away. The first inkling they might be valuable as #s matching original cars was becoming known. Northern cars such Ohioscott's probably had some early rust issues from being winter driven. My 69 had its first paint job in 1974 that I know of. One thing I can tell you before the internet parts were very hard to find.

 Well unless he is an Expert in First Gen Camaro's its unlikely he would be able to "certify" it as a Z28. First is drive train stampings, real or fake ? Trim Tag real or fake. Hidden Vin does it match the dash VIN. Does it have the Protecto Plate or any other documents and can he tell fake from real ones. You would have to ask the Experts here and post all the pics they want to Verify all the parts as real Z28 parts.

 Rally Sport with no back up lights ?  Squared corners for the Vin plate access. I would guess major work has been done, just not very well. Oh I would run away very fast !
