Phillip,
 You are the man! with a picture too. My rears were faded away but upon further inspection I found paint in the corners. I could not find the thread, Thank you for posting it. I now believe is is part of the Z21 option. LA cars only?

Ed,
  The part number on the bezels are the same for standard or painted (different for front and back).
 The only slight mention I have seen refers to "and other bright accents" I think was the term used , I will find it and be precise... it may be in old sales brocures. But look closely at original cars and you will find some I'm sure. There is a thread on this site from a few years ago about this subject, by Me. I do have some but never have been able to post pictures on this site.  The Part numbers are 3925429 for the front and 3927459 for the rear.

Sam,
 Rust on the water pump? Radiator bung cracked? Thermostat and cap O.K.? I have never needed a sealer on a radiator hose.

Ed,
 Picture is worth a thousand words, Thanks. That was my original point- these facts are missing from the R/S ID link.
As a side note The Z21 also consisted of the hightlighted side marker bezels (black painted valleys) that i have never seen listed in print, Same part numbers. The original rear bezels were taller/deeper to compensate for the gasket to keep your trunk dry.

Look on the side of the hood all the way in the corner on the rear side. On original hoods there will be faint stamps indicating the week it was built.

Mike,
 In 1968 the option # was U73 and only came with AM radios (solid mast). Hope it helps.

ED,
 I read that # 13 comment as stating that that trim is part of the "Z21 style trim". Z-21 did not come with the thee piece R/S lower door molding.

 Kurt, Tom,
 Please respond to your comments regarding the 1968 R/S lower body three piece trim. Tom states flatly that I am wrong, Kurt seems to agree based on his # 9 reply "ALL THE PHYSICAL ITEMS" comment. If I am FOS please point out where I am wrong. I have been waiting  a week for some kind of reply to the "drive by" opinions, that is the reason for this post.

Allen,
 No, All real 1968 R/S cars would have been built with the THREE PIECE R/S ONLY lower body molding. Tom must be thinking of the roof drip rail moldings (3 pieces) or the door revel molding (2 piece).

Kev,
 What is the build date of your car? LA or Norwood?  I was thinking/hoping that they were "Borrowed" from a different car line and find them that way, Still looking.

Allan,
 There are two types of lower moldings for 1968. R/S molding are three piece and would be attached to the door, the other molding is a one piece that mounts under the door and extends onto the rear quarters and front fender. So removing a door panel would revel the FILLED in holes on a original R/S car. But the very front hole will show Under the front door hinge, on the outer panel. Buy a 1968 Camaro AIM  (assembly instruction Manual AKA Factory Assembly Manual) and a 1968 "BODY BY FISHER" service manual if you are just starting.

Tom,
