The major portion of body panels on my 11A (66) LOS built car were stamped with an H.  I had only 3 items stamped with a T;
   T43  =trunk lid.
   T42  =on center of brace between rear frame rails. (If I remember right this was                     where Floor pan and Trunk Floor pan came together)
   T38  = on top of both Parking Brake cable brackets (spot welded on inside front of Rear Frame rails)

Jeg's has a nice option listed right at the beginning of the results

BTW; That Painless switch from JEGS looks exactly like the Lokar switch.  Also, forgot to ask, did you have to do any modifying to the Trans. tunnel?

because I was told that if you replace the whole Cowl, and move the Trim Tag over to the new one, you need Police/ or State Department official present to witness and document it. 

That only applies to VINs, not TTs. At least in this state because the TT has nothing to do with motor vehicle registration, the VIN does.

But would still loose your partial Vin. #'s.  To me those are important part of the history of the car.

yes, going to kinda do like you did, maybe a little different, planning to cut the top of the cowl piece off behind the wiper arms and replace it with new from the part I ordered.  Initially I was going to fab it up, but just too many curves there to mess with.

Thanks!
Actually if you look closely you will see that those ridges around the wipers end about 3 in. from the back edge of the top of the Cowl panel.  Yes the back edge is curved but it is flat.  We did that whole back edge in about 4 sections.  We used poster board to make templates to get the curve right.

Sorry Mooney, I haven't been following this lately.  I ran into a BIG surprise on the top of my Cowl right under the lower edge of Windshield when restoring my car.  It still had the original Windshield (cracked)in the car, so assumed it had never been taken out  Mostly because I had heard (somewhere) that 9 times out of 10 these old Windshields will crack when you remove them.  Anyhow, someone had removed the Windshield and done body work (filler) under the lower edge of the Windshield.  They did a good job, as it wasn't noticeable, until you ground into it.  BUT, they filled over rust.  I'm gonna post a couple pics..  I did not replace the Whole Cowl, because I was told that if you replace the whole Cowl, and move the Trim Tag over to the new one, you need Police/ or State Department official present to witness and document it.  Plus the fact you are going to loose your partial Vin #s.  There are 3 layers of metal all come together right in that area.  I replaced the top Dash, and the bottom layer of the 3 was still pretty solid.  We cleaned that up as best we could and treated it with Rust Converter.  Then we pieced in what was missing of the back edge of the top of the cowl.  I hope these pics. give you some idea what we did.

23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bumper Jack -- Original color on: October 21, 2014, 10:18:19 PM
I used Rustoleum Machine Gray for both Jack and Shocks.  I was not concerned with "spot on" originality, but wanted to be close.  I forget where but it was recommended somewhere.  My shocks aren't even spiral shocks, they're Monroe Gas shocks.  But at a glance they look right. My cars a driver, I read somewhere here on a post that I wouldn't be happy with Spiral shocks on a driver.

This is the one I used, it is a Lokar, and very easy to install.

Nice car, ever been a Carolina Blue '68 documented?  A couple of minor things I spotted,looks like it was ran without Air Cleaner at some point, and had a "backfire".  Also, description states Posi-traction rear-end, but no deal on underside of the Trunk lid. And no sign that there ever was one.

WOW!  A rare Camero! This car has the best of everything.  Really I just shake my head when I see Camaro mis-spelled.  I was at a Car Show at a Chevy Dealer earlier this fall, and they had a  fancy 18 in. wheel for a newer Camero in the window.  REALLY?Huh?  A Chevy dealer? Huh Huh

I think Im gonna do a LS swap with twin turbos to fill the gaps.  Once that is finished I plan on doing a suspension upgrade and shave the door handles, chop the top 2" and put recaro seats in and mini tub it for 20's
NOT!   Nice car, lookin' good!

I love the fall colors and old country PAVED roads.. Grin

(the indiana compacted rock roads are the worst)

great pics
Thanks!  LOL!  This was actually a gravel road, believe me the "old Girl" don't see much of that. I only went about a 1/2 mile at 15 / 20 mph.  You can't find this kind of "canopy" on the highway.

  I love the Fall colors and Old Country Roads. Cheesy
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Galvanized finish on 67-68 tail light housings, hot dipped or electroplated? on: October 16, 2014, 09:53:15 PM
I'd guess, based on volume economics, that they were stamped from hot-dip galvanized rolled sheet stock, which then required no further processing or handling.  Smiley
  I agree with that about stamping from stock. I looked at the lamp opening edges and see they are exposed steel with no galvanizing, obviously from the hole stamping process

Mike

I also agree on this process, as I saw minor surface around the edge of holes.  My 11A  LOS built car has all Phillips screws on both backing plates.
