Guys, Thanks for the X6 info. My car is a 11A car so no X66 Code on the trim tag. I never thought about the connection. The crayon markings would be harder to read so maybe that's why they started putting it on the tag. Also in the picture of the floor pan, in the front bottom of the firewall there is silver or light grey paint that leaked out of the pocket for the subframe. I am guessing when they switched colors they would have to run thinner or something thru the paint gun to clean it. Maybe the painters sprayed it in these pockets?? Those paint runs are over the black but factory blue paint is sprayed on top. Good question for JohnZ. I love tracing this stuff down but will regret to blast it off for repaint.

I just had 2 Quadrajets done by ( www.carbjunkys.com ) and was really pleased with the factory finish and attention to detail Jim preformed on mine.
The chevelle runs great, havent started the camaro yet.

I am restoring a 69 BB, finally got it on the rotsiserie, cleaned it and found some interesting things. Photos show a date stamp just above the pinion area, never heard this mentioned before. I found sheet metal stamps all over but never with body style "12437" included. Another photo shows there is no paint under the left exhaust hanger, was this installed before the floor was painted? There is an "X6"in crayon on the rear seat panel anybody know what this represents. I cant seem to find the date stamp on the floor pan, anybody know were to look?

I just wanted to thank you for your help & letting me take pictures of your magnificent car. The picture shows a greater definition of the two black paints used than I saw with my eyes. George

I just revisited this post and looked back on the old posts where you wondered if they actually were installed at the factory. I worked at Jack Douglas Chevrolet back when these cars were 2 years old and don't remember the shields.
I found out by finding the holes on my core support and was going to weld them up before powder coating. Glad I didn't, curiocity prevailed this time. At the time I posted the picture I couldn't mount it to the car, but I looked for the holes in the subframe. They are there and one of the screws still has some of the plastic attached. I am sure most of these got torn up on parking curbs. The shield Ed makes looks really nice and matches any pictures I have seen.

I received the re-pro 396 air shield from Ed Melberg, it is a really nice piece. I cant fit it to the car but I attached it to the core support and took some pictures.
