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).

Jeff,

 The AIM shows just a standard nut # 9417954.

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,

The link provided does not mention the R/S side molding. Three pieces per side and the fastener holes in the door. these follow the lower body line and separates the dull black from the body color.

Kurt,
 How would the plant labor strikes affect the above mentioned process?  Would cars have been caught in limbo and have odd body, build, and VIN numbers?  Do you know the weeks involved?
  Thank you,
  Victor

Allen.
 Remove your door panels and see if there are holes filled in. (rear quarters-Front fenders also are pierced) also check if the light buckets are R/S style, check if a vacuum canister was removed, Check the light switch,
 Check if the rear panel under the bumper has been filled in. 68 R/S questions are rarely answered... We middle kids need to stick together. I am no expert but 30 plus years  of 68 R/S cars has provided me with a little insight. Any help i can provide I will.
  Good luck,
  Victor
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1968 R/S Molding clips style on: November 25, 2010, 08:38:19 PM
Hi Guys,
 Part # 3921828 retaining clips in the AIM (page 423) shows a clip that looks like the repo items from classic camaro or rick's with a green finish and two prong construction, However the clips that were I removed were four prong brown finish clips that resemble a
 bug with longer "leggs" on one side like a stink bug (the moldingd are somewhat triangle shapped). There is not a revision listed in my AIM but there is no printed date either, The car is an L.A. 05C, I want to use the brown clips that fit perfectly and holds the moulding very tight. Does anybody know if these clips were original? changed at the assembly plantat some point?  and if so, where can i get six more?
 The brown four prong clips are far superior to the green two prong clips. Has any one else encountered these clips on their car?
 Thank you for your time,
  Victor

Thank's for the replies and information. O7C was good to hear.

Joe,
 Based on thirty years of collecting what is your opinion on the basic question Did the factory install "MUNCIE" stamped
shifters through the entire 1968 production run?


 John,
 If there was no design change why would they replace them? What would your opinion be for the above question?

Vic,
 Yes they are different, One is to repair the car and the other to put the car together. You can use the correct 14" wheels, what are you using? Two piece rotors were a early 67 thing with a hub and a matching rotor. The photo seems to indicate that you are using the wrong holes, look for holes further out on the backing plate. Look at the picture then imagine a rotor in place.... the rotor diameter is just a bit smaller than the backing plate. Try mocking the parts up with the spindle, that should help. Be sure you have all the parts and pieces that were removed in the first place. Keep us posted. Good luck.

Vic,
 1968 Factory disc brake camaros (- Z/28) came with 14" wheels. The offset (wheel depth) is what is crucial.
 Scour through this site and the answers to most of your questions will be here. Click on the little boxes on the home page. A chassis service manual, Fisher body service manual are great investments. If you are going to be taking it apart a Factory assembly manual is a must. Good luck.
