I posted this over on TC, but thought to see if anyone here could add to this... http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?p=1805193&posted=1#post1805193
In the final assembly phase of my '67, go to put the trunk lock cylinder in and when in, the key slot is rotated about 90 degrees.
The key slot is normally vertical, and since there's only one way the cylinder fits in the lock opening ,something is odd.
I've never had an issue with this, ...anyone else ever come across this?
For the record, my car is an early build '67 (Oct. '66), and this is the original rear panel.
Ironically I was comparing to my other '67 (a survivo coupe) which is exactly the same since it's also an Oct. '66 build. But something doesn't add up when looking at the drawing from the other thread comparing the two layouts. Mine seems to match the one on the right, ...but neither of the tailpanels have ever been changed on either of the cars. (?)
Can someone verify this drawing is labelled correctly?
I never really paid much attention to the alignment slots on these locks. Is '68 the same as the '67?
The net here is I need to figure out what lock cylinder to get that will be oriented correctly since my car is in final paint...
FYI, ...this is a photo of my survivor (41,000 miles) '67 coupe. The tail panel along with all the other sheet metal is original.
