This looks like a single exhaust. I see the tailpipe on the right side but the tip is painted black.

  Welcome aboard. It's good to put a face to a name. This is a first I am seeing this web page you posted and my mental image of some familiar names sure has changed! I know the effort would be huge but having a page with group member pictures would be a neat thing to have.

Today I noticed a 'Model Info' link. Was this something new or was I just blind to it before?
Anyhow, it's very informative!

  I'm not an expert for 69 tags but the number 7 catches my attention. Of the few NOR tags I have seen around that 69 date range they have a curved 7.
Then again I don't know if more than 1 tag stamper was in use at any given time to possibly have a different font.

 I was holding back but here is the whole paragraph....
Finally, the car was introduced to the press as the Camaro, considered to be a good name because nobody knew what it meant. Chevrolet produced an old French dictionary showing that the word meant "friend" or "companion", but Ford found an alternate meaning in an old Spanish dictionary-"a small, shrimp-like creature."The automotive press had a good laugh over that, and an even bigger one when one journalist found yet another meaning-"loose bowels." It didn't take long for the laughter to stop after the introduction of the stunning 1967 Camaro!

  Speaking from my own personal experience over the years........'friend', 'companion' or 'shrimp'...I've been in a few really fast ones that almost gave me "loose bowels."  Cheesy

An excerpt from an article 'The History of Camaro'....

 A dipstick research effort would be an interesting endeavor for CRG.
Sort of like the recent bolt markings done last year.

You are correct to install the standard cap. Both my 67 L35's (NOR and LOS) have the standard interior and their original 'Camaro' horn caps.

 When I restored my one 67 in the 1980's I used GM Reconditioning black paint for the firewall, rocker and rear panel blackouts.
The gloss of that paint looks exact to my other 67 that still has the original black tail panel.
It makes sense to me there would be a limited choice (like 1) for blackouts.

 This is perfect timing. I have new rubber for my 67 vents and am at the point of replacing them along with new handles.
This is the perfect exploded view to work by.

Thanks,
Mike

  Steve's work is excellent but remember the final results depend on the base metal condition. So, if there are pits then you will see them in the finished product though they will be plated. I'm at work now so I can't post a picture but if you want to see his work let me know.

Based on that explanation how will the second batch with the different paper render images?

Thanks,
Mike

 What's the scoop about the special paper you mention?

 Thanks for that link. I see the kit also has the dash defroster vent duct seals too.
Mine are dried out and certainly need to get replaced.

 I'd sure like to know too what the materials are in item #1 & #2. Mine has completely fallen off.
As for the letter and numbers that looks to be the date and I believe the letter I was not used in this instance so J looks correct for Sept.
Your date has low lag time between being made vs. installed in your car.
My 5B NOR BB has a Harrison dated M66 (Dec 66) core. I guess BB's didn't take off in sufficient numbers to use the cores more frequently in 67 compared to the smaller block counterparts that used the standard heater core.
