 I read within CRG a while back that in '68 there were new DOT safety laws passed that made it necessary for the satin moldings. I think the wiper arms were included in that too but I am not 100% sure. '67 was bright trim.
Maybe John Z. can verify that.

WOW...Bob, I had my 67 AM since the early 80's and that too doesn't have those pages.  Huh
I never realized it until reading your post.
What color do you think it is? I have a few I found in my shed I know I took from parts cars in the 80's.

OK....I see what you mean now. A potential for moving the tags to another body. For some reason, after seeing the red color on both cars and assuming for a moment they were the same, I was thinking now there is something you don't see often...a Firebird with a Camaro tag. That would be interesting to explain the difference in quarters.  Cheesy

 I take that add to be for 2 separate cars, not a rebody. The pics show a Camaro and FB rear tail panel.

 I know the topic of the tail paint has been discussed here before and I believe the consensus was the black paint used for the tail was the same for the lower rockers (where used) and the firewall. It makes sense because I doubt GM would have a special gloss just for the tail blackout. If you were to take a guess (unless you know for sure) at what gloss level would you say yours is?

36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Took the Day Off.... on: August 29, 2014, 10:43:03 PM
 I figured that but I'm not sure what he is stating. Does he mean the tail blackout is gloss black?

"I have to retract my first belief of them being semi or satin black. "
  What do you mean by that statement?

Hmm...I thought SB used a 5/16" line from tank to pump and the BB was 3/8". Maybe I am getting confused with the BB fuel line routing and the way it is secured by a retainer on the front frame then. I knew something is different with the BB fuel line.

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Extent of firewall coverage with body paint on: August 26, 2014, 10:10:04 AM
 I'm at the point of spraying the door jambs, underside of trunk lid and lip and firewall prior to body spray. How low did the robotics spray paint on the firewall prior to blackout?
Were the bottom of the "saddle bags" and the angular looking lower fender support covered in body color too prior to blackout? This is for a 67 NOR car.

Thank You,
Mike

Both my 67's have them. On the one I restored I replaced a missing one using a cigarette filter (I think from a Marlboro). It worked and looks excellent.

A BB had a larger 3/8" fuel line ID and an offset for the transmission cross member mounting bolts.

There are a lot of bolts pictured here from a well participated discussion:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9074.15
Look at reply #28 for seat bolts. Keep in mind that the head markings can vary depending on the mfg, but for seats I have always seen the washers with the barbs in the edges.

Hi William,

  What concerns me is though it may have been put in a secure place, oxidation from air will still take place.
My '67's UOIT was found under the carpet so it was spared handling damage, but it still turned yellow from the air exposure.

Just an observation.

 I can't comment on the codes, but my first impression is the exceptional condition of the paper and hues for being 46 years old.
I re-read your thread thinking is this was a reproduction document but I see now this is supposed to be a real one.
