Here is  DG interior 69 Z28, zoom in and look at the aera where the light is reflecting, suede finish. When I looked at this car this area matched the dash to a "T", wish now I had better pictures.
 Take ever opportunity you get to study original cars.

I believe the metal area around the lower rear window area was painted the same time the dash was and is also suede finish, seen it on more than a handful of original cars.

Here's one from a 1100 mile 10D Norwood car, looks like clear cad/zinc to me.

I thought all these were dipped black?  All of the 69 ones I cleaned were.

I agree, at least the 69's

My observation on the valve with the tack welded wire support shows up on allot on 68 Chevrolets and Vette's and was uesd on early run 69 cars as well. I have no clue as to when this valve started.

 I believe your observation on the 67 and 68 cars is spot on. I believe the zinc plated horn bolts were superceded to dark phosphate around the early run of  69 Cheverolets. That has just been my observation from looking at unmolested cars.
Most 69's hand very few zinc plated fasteners under the hood. Exceptions being some of the sheetmetal screws like VR, horn relay, ground straps, and washer bottle bracket hold down screws.
 I am not at home now and can not give you the page #'s and PN's now. But in my two coppies of the 69 Camaro Assembly manual where it shows one of the horns and bolt detail, there is a revision to that bolt, dated I believe 10/68. In the lower revision box on that page it states the # of the zinc fastener and the word "Was". I believe on Camaros they started using the same dark phosphate bolt that holds the lower hood latch to the core support and header. Not serated, and with a captured washer.
 I had asked Steve Shauger this same question awhile back concerning horn bolts on 69 Camaros. I believe he told me that he had seen Zinc horn bolts on some early 69's only.
 Always take the time to soak in all the detail stuff on unrestored cars, not just Camaros.

I also got to meet and talk with Bob @ MCACN. Bob thank you for putting up with me and my flashlight, just could not stop looking at this wonderfull survivor.
 I was also intrigued by the OE black out on the rear panel of your car, tape lines and all.

Thanks Mike

I seem to remember reading here that the BDY's on 69 NOR trim tags were reset at some point in the run. Anyone remember the month/week ?

Thanks Mike

Here are some links to look at. Eventually they will be up on the MCACN sight. It is not possible to absorb all those cars in a few days This show is a must if you have never been there.

 No. The correct assy line cap is the one I posted, the very first design also had a small hole on the back poppet cover.
The cap you have is directly vented to atmosphere and most likely piss gas out when you start out with a full tank.
Here is one on ebay now   

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-1968-1969-CAMARO-NOS-GAS-CAP-/250805683344?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr&hash=item3a652f0490

I think it is for station wagon applications, they guy has it listed wrong.

The whole purpose of the Anti surge cap is to maintain a very slight pressure in the tank to avoid splash out, and it can still happen if your topped off, and the tank is very hot, and you launch hard. But not likley.
 Untill you find a OE cap I would just run the laster GM cap with the ears, there cheap and work the same.
