Tricky, slippery slope with this topic.
I have seen their products come out BOTH perfect and a disaster (COLOR & FONT) with a poor outcome after both sides many attempts to resolve. (Long story)

Offcialy,, they make great Garage art plates.

I ended up ordering a 'Kit' from one of the vendors and they were in fact RED. I used a sears blunt punch to "SET" the intergrated rivet into the body hole. One hit with the ball peen and the clip was go to go in the body. One clip popped out when wrestling the line into the hoop, I just re-set the rivet again with a healthy blow of the hammer. My orig clips were heavy coated with undercoating and one w/ the rivet rusted off. After cleaning they did show orig red coloring. I do not think I kept the carcasses to pic for you. I do remember that a call to AMK was done and they claimed they were discontinued so I searched for other sources and found them from Ricks, Classic or Inline tube??? one of them had em.

Looking at a lot of the period Ads found in mags of the day. Chev listed the cars as a ,,,,

'Camaro SS with with Ralley Sport equipment'     68 Ad-"Some cars fake it. These make it."

'Camaro SS sport Coupe'  68 Ad-"The resemblenace is more then coincidental" Car clearly has RS option but not mentioned?

'Camaro SS convertable' 69 Ad-"Camaro SS...and friends" Pace car ad,,,Z11 content included RS eqipment...

I think they were more obsessed with convincing prospective Customers that could not swing a Vette that an F body would suffice.
The answer to this question is a matter of preference,,,as I always say,,,any one lucky enough to own a SS/RS, RS/SS, Z28/RS, RS/Z28 is very lucky and way you name it,,

I have never seen a DiChromate treated Cad coil bracket.

di∑chro∑mate   
Pronunciation: \(ˌ)dī-ˈkrō-ˌmāt, ˈdī-krō-\
Function: noun
Etymology: International Scientific Vocabulary
Date: circa 1864
: a usually orange to red chromium salt containing the anion Cr2O72− <dichromate of potassium> ócalled also bichromate

The DiChro treatment of a Cad or Zinc plated part turns the part the Yellow color,,,,,or Burns i brown with excessive duration

I believe that list incorrectly uses the term.

Go ahead and purchase the Cadwell system, It works well if you can manufactue a power supply, properly prep your parts, handle the Chem.
Otherwise find a jobber or industrial plater who will handle hobby parts.

Coil bracket should be Bright Cad, I swear some of them even look galvanized?

Maybe this question is out there but,,,,
Can you re-plate a used orig latch?
I have never had "Moving" parts renewed by my plater.

Has anyone ever tried this ?

Yes like Todd mentioned, I have a orig interior 68 car from LOS w/ cowl tag 12E equipped with the Deluxe Houndstooth Black buckets (Trim code 749) and it was built with shoulder belts.

I need to Call my friend Roger and see if his 12E LOS z28 he is reastoring has the shoulder belts  also.
