I think these reply’s are right on the mark. I am in the same boat on my 69 right now.

I chose to order a SPECTRA tank from a local vendor and installed it in my other car, a 68. It looks really good, better than the OER painted version. Fit well and appears to be ‘SAME’ as orig, but I really did not study all the curves, bends, folds, indents, welds and on and on,,,I was basically happy.
The option for a NOS replacement item is nice, at double the cost and dependant on condition and if you are a NOS or nothing kind of restorer.

I even called my local plater to ask about options for strip-&-plate ideas for an old tank,,,turns out to be a poor choice $ wise, safety & correctness.

Exactly ----

I pulled my clips off of my pace car and they were so heavily coated in body shop undercoating gunk that when placed in a mild  (Solvent 140) tank the grime came off exposing the tranlucent Blue dye coloring..Nothing like the clips in the left side of the pictures above.
Ultimatly what I did was include the clips in my plating batch (Bright Zinc) and hung them from a wire and mist sprayed them with Dykem Blue layout Blue,,,they look very close to as found.

I like the "Quanta" Made in Canada tank I got for my 68, as I did not care for the painted OER version I saw at swap meets.

Most opt for a replacment tank vice restoring the OLD tank, my thinking was after all the years of abuse, dents, undercoating, corrosion, paint overspray, etc the efforts to restore, (obtaining real plating vice spray painting the exterior) and cleaning & sealing the interior of the tank was not worth the efforts when compared to the current quality avail and offered by the Quanta tank.
The appearance of the 67-68 tank is great.

I have heard that with the 69 tanks (Brand unknown) can have filler neck, position-angle issues?

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,,

68 SS/rs 396
69 SS/rs 350 LA Z11
