You may want to read through this, in its entirety first:

Do you mean an under pan/inspection cover for a power glide with the 168 tooth flex plate?

I found the older thread where JohnZ previously discussed this.  At the bottom:

Maybe I read too much into his article, but I always assumed that included rally wheels.  If they shipped them efficiently crammed into rail cars and also final-painted, they would likely be scratched up by time they got onto a car.   
35  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BR or B-R on ignition coil can? on: October 30, 2013, 09:36:22 AM
I've read that the changeover from BR to B-R occurred some time in the 68 model year.  Maybe try an advanced search here for old posts.

John Z's article is always a go-to source for info.  If not the entire article, read Paint Shop Operations, to include how wheels were shipped in rail cars.

I think you can still download the 67 chassis service manual from here, not sure if 69 would be much different:

My car has an access cut-out, from a PO or repair shop prior to 1986.  Must have been the thing to do back in the day.  I pulled my AC suitcase a few weeks ago to restore, it was a major PITA.  I still had to nearly remove the fender to get to all the box fasteners.  Don't have the kids around when you do this Grin.  If you pull the "suitcase", you'll need the strip caulking or whatever it's called to reseal the box.  You can usually get this from a local jobber.  As JK mentioned, you will likely need to replace other old seals as well.  Take your time, you won't want to go back in a second time.

I did look first at the assortment of adapters or reducers at the FLAPS and they all appeared too long to work as the extension, and I wasn't sure of the outer diameters I needed.  For me it was easier to pay a little extra than buy a part and then have to modify it.  Maybe they would have worked regardless, but I needed a sure fit for my situation and time constraints.  Plus the ones from HBC are stainless.
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What the heck is this? on: October 08, 2013, 12:32:15 PM
No, I've seen them on eBay for Impala, Nova, etc.  I think the full size shield was slightly different, not sure about others.

They are shown in the AIM on UPC M35 Sheet A19 for 67, Sheet A20 for 68 and 69.  Don't see them shown under M38 or M40.  
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What the heck is this? on: October 07, 2013, 03:57:46 PM
That's an auto transmission linkage shield.  I just installed a similar one on a 67 with a powerglide this past weekend.  Gets bolted up along with the bottom flexplate inspection cover on the driver's side.  They may vary a little for T400, between years, etc. See UPC M35/M38/M40 in an AIM for starters  Most got thrown away by backyard mechanics.  Not sure if they're repopped, took me a long time to find the correct one in good condition.   
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Exhaust Alignment Sleeves on: October 06, 2013, 08:32:04 PM
HBC also carries them in stainless.  I installed a set this weekend, the fit was perfect.

VIN should be stamped on a plate riveted to the drive side, front door jamb area, near the interior light switch.  There are also hidden partial VINs under the cowl vent panel and on the firewall, under the heater box.  As stated that trim tag looks home-made unless it's some sort of foreign tag.  Still looks bogus, picture is not too clear.  Be careful.

I did not know... what are 't-tags'?

cowl trim tags

My L48 RS/SS is LOS body scheduling code K250, later that same day.  You probably know that the plant never advanced t-tags beyond week B that month.   I have Deluxe interior, convertible, pretty sure it only has two rear belts.  The original glove box sticker is long gone so I can't check that.
