Remember that:

2. Making the inner rear wheelhouse tubs wider would have compromised the rear seat hip room dimension ..............

 I agree. It was cramped enough spending time in the back seat at the drive-ins back in my youthful wild days  ( Mike checks over his shoulder for the wife's whereabouts )  Cheesy I can only image how cramped it would be if it was narrower!

Have you tried Crane Corvette Supply? They make the best accurate aftermarket BB valve covers. I think they also do flash chrome, though I' am not sure if it includes BB.

Decklid - they used that most of the way thru 67 production. There was an earlier version, but I'm not sure LOS ever got that version.
I'm also curious on the decklid date. Should have asked that. No hurry. Smiley

Thanks!

  The lid with the center elongated hole was for the '66 period, correct?

34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: paint code on leaf spring by front eye bolt, on 1969 camaro on: December 04, 2014, 10:11:41 AM
 There was a discussion about paint coded leaf springs (it was used) for 1967 and possibly early 68. I am under the assumption that 67 was the only year used before starting to use decals.
The discussion can be found here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9739.0

 The description is humorous! I'm curious if someone actually buys it.

 I suspect those VIN's are well guarded due to fraud.
This link talked about it for Motion:

 Here is a topic about that from 2009:

  Both, my 04B LOS and 05B NOR, have the metal tags.

This answers the The GM jam decal question I have. What is the build date on this 67?

Steve,

  Just curious...what question did you have about the sticker?

 Gosh, I completely forgot the OP asked about the rear panels too.
Great shots MooneyDriver!  Looks like your doors show signs of adhesive too.

 I like the 'Stang a lot. But, I own Camaros simply because I like them more :-)

 Hi Wendell,

    Attached are two pictures of the paint edge from my 67 w/standard interior. You can clearly see the rear paint edge line. The front edge is hidden under the rubber, which is very brittle, so I didn't want to pop out the black plugs. Also, there looks to be traces of adhesive in that area so I didn't want to risk tearing the original rubber.
  The picture MooneyDrive posted displays an excellent view of the bottom paint line under the door panel.

MooneyDriver, can you get a front shot of the paint edge under the rubber on that door?

 That bolt thread started by Marty was one of the most educational ones I have read here to date.

 Lots of good pictures.

Enjoy!

 I can take pictures later today from the car with the original paint when I get home and post.

Look at reply #7 at the bottom:
http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=60931

 Make sure you scribe the pinion nut and count the number of exposed threads before removing.
Also, the pinion yoke *may* have a groove worn into it so a new seal may not stop the leak.
I had the with my one car and had to change the yoke too.

 A dab of JB Weld will certainly work.
