Originality / Sheet metal stampings

I knew but didnít really bother to look and photograph until today. Apparently the right quarter was covered in body filler. I have receipts for the genuine GM parts and know the only stamped piece left thatís original is the trunk. I posted pictures and would like a bit of help for production dates if possible.
Right fender
Left quarter
Trunk-car is an 11E

General Discussion / Fuel gauge/lights are wonky
« on: August 24, 2022, 01:55:43 AM »
On the 68Ö.The fuel gauge drops past empty when the parking lights or headlights are turned on, and returns to normal when they are turned off. This is a new one. Havenít got the skeee-matic out yet, but am willing to listen to what anyone suggests as I am feeling lazy. I have an idea, but not sure. Feel free to jump in!

Originality / 67 on eBay

Iíve never seen this date stamp, and Iím always learning new stuff. Where is it located? Iím guess itís Fisher Body stamp. Iíve seen different versions of the luggage rack, not sure if itís correct.  Comments appreciated.

Once you start the drill, youíre committed to finishing the project. So after acquiring my first parts in 1989 or thereabouts, I finally got all the correct factory parts for the front. I used (because I thought it was a good idea) the gasket the Impalas, Chevelles, etc use as a template.

General Discussion / The Rabbit Hole of Documentation

If you have never clicked on the box in the upper left corner of the page, I highly encourage you to do so. It is sometimes information overload but incredibly educational. Pick a box, dive in,be educated, pick another box, and so on.

Check out this nugget I copied from there, as I was shocked by the 2nd sentence and had to reread it.

Chevrolet Assembly - Front Sheet Metal Subassembly
All the color-painted exterior front sheet metal panels, plus the black-primed radiator support, inner fenders, and center grille support and the low-bake painted grille were conveyed to the sheet metal assembly area; all were in "Broadcast" sequence, matching the sequence of bodies on the main assembly line. Option holes for engine emblems, antennas, Vigilite housings, nameplates and moldings were pierced in large hydraulic fender piercing fixtures before the fenders were placed in the assembly fixtures.

So I guess itís ok to punch out a hole in a perfectly good painted fender. Who knew.

Still as rookie at spotting the fakes, but Iím not sold on the TT, as I donít see any number in the upper right corner. I leave it to the keener eyes, but also the pad looks suspect as well as I seeÖ.wellÖ.I have no actual clue if they are legit. Pics included, link as well.
Chime in please.
