Only light colored cars were blacked out. It is my understanding that the shade was more of a satin finish, same as tail panel for big block 67/68 Camaros. Pretty sure they went from wheel well to wheel well, tracking with the rockers, so in effect everything below RS chrome trim was blacked out.

Thanks!

Thanks a million! This does provide me what I need. Does the trunk mat cover the two elongated humps parallel to the back seat brace or stop before that?

All,

For the satin black that went on the rockers for RS cars, light exterior paint, did the upper edge fold into the car so you actually saw the black on the near horizontal when you opened the door or did it stop at the effective bottom of the door when the door was shut?

Thanks,

All,

Planning on putting the sound deadening material on the trunk floor under the mat. Can I assume that from the floor up, to the drip rails, that the speckled paint was used to include inner fender well, back of back seat bracing, structure between inner fenders and trunk lid hinges, etc...?

Thanks.

More solid advice. The back seat seems to be a more challenging proposition. Where is a good local place to grab the hog rings and angled pliers? Is that something Lowe's would have?

You know... she is a professional seamstress... could probably use that skill set...

Hanging out with you guys is good for the soul... Cool

Thank you very much! My wife says, "Just pay the guy!" (kinda cool actually to have that kind of support).

I also did find two 20+ minute videos on youtube by National Parts Depot where they do a pretty detailed job on a pair of '67 deluxe seats no less.

I think I am going to give it a shot.

Really appreciate the guidance.

Any thoughts/recommendations on whether I should tackle the re-upholstering of my deluxe seats considering the fact that I have never done it before? Is there a knack that only the pro's have or can a guy watch a youtube video and figure it out?

I have the new cushions and seat covers already. I also have the hooks and pliers needed.

A local guy, who is very reputable, told me that for him to do it, with me providing all materials, would run me $225 for the front seats.

Thoughts?
Thanks,
Matt

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

James, Kurt, thanks a million.

Last set from my car.

More pics

First off, I must have been hallucinating... I am REALLY certain that I really did pull three sets of seatbelts out of the back, yet I can only find only four sets at the moment. However stuff is all over the garage.

My glove box shows 5 seat-belts. I have posted several photos. The first are from my car, appearing to be non-deluxe belts, but they were retractors up front.

I next posted what Classic Industries 'says' is correct.

My simple discrepancy is that if Classic is correct, I have a non-SS tire pressure sticker in the car with some really solid evidence that I have an SS. In addition to the trim tag, the rear-end matches as a 12-bolt as close as they can match. It had 3:31 non-posi gears (standard for Powerglide). The Powerglide tranny had a 21 tooth speedo gear and the valve body was date stamped Oct 66, exact same month as the intake manifold. Chrome valve covers, air cleaners and oil fill along with intake survived from the original car. Tracked car back to 1969, via last owner.

Hope the pics help. Will have to post several times.
Matt
