On the 'C' stamp, it may well be a date code, but I recall seeing 'C' and 'O' stamped on other parts on my car, including the idler arm frame mount and the anti-sway bar lateral restraint straps.
I think all the flat handled grey tip dipsticks are incorrect and probably not worth even scrap so you should all just send them to me and I'll take care of them. 
Actually, I just wonder if there's is any concept of NOR vs. LOS.  I have a grey tipped round handle but it's not original to mine as I purchased it from Jeff.  I really can't believe all those flat handle sticks could be wrong.  I'm with Jeff even though I do have a dog in the fight, that there had to be more than one supplier and with the length and levels the same, it fills the requirement GM probably needed.

About 2 hours 45 mins SW of me. Shoot me a pm, curious what you found.
Hans, as you did such a good job of photographing the undisturbed underside of the hose retainer clip where the attaching bolt came in contact, did you also happen to photograph the underside of the bolt which would likely have remnants of its original finish?

I wish I had!!   Unfortunately not....I scanned all the pics I took and didn't see that one....As all the other fuel line and brake line screws were phosphate, I can't remember why I went with zinc for the brake hose screw.   My assumption is I must have tagged it that way when I bagged and tagged all the fasteners.    But I easily be wrong with my assumptions.  Wish I could be more conclusive....

I was wondering if someone with an original windshield washer cap on the tank could measure what the nipple size is for the hose going from the tank to the inlet on the washer unit.  I bought "correct" ribbed washer hose years ago and it is way too loose on that nipple on mine.  I'm thinking it could be an aftermarket lid that isn't right or the hose.  Just don't know which one.

That might be an idea. It's 120 degrees in my garage at the moment so nothing is getting done. Maybe a piece of pvc & a couple of caps would provide a tight seal....Joe

Here is just one way to soften rubber that I found in Google search.

Rubber Softener

    Spray the rubber with silicone spray. This spray can be found at any camping supply store. Spray until the rubber is soaked. Place the rubber inside an airtight, plastic bag. Use large garbage bags for big pieces of rubber.

    Keep the rubber in the plastic bag for three to seven days.

    Lift the bagged piece of rubber and bend it to check for pliability. Once the desired suppleness is attained, you can remove it from the bag for use. You might need to repeat this process if the rubber hasn't softened to the extent you desire.

7729998 69 Camaro outer door fuzzies. Probably 68 and firebird as well.
Deluxe or std?
My parts book doesn't specify deluxe or standard for the outers. It only says 68-69. They look like the outer fuzzies on my 69 with a standard interior.
