Binky,
 For how long and how many cars have you certified?

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,
 1968 AIM page 423

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
297  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

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?
