Thank you thank you!
Wow. Looking at the R/S tank & Associated Check valve (External; per the UPC 12 EN dated _Jan 5th 1968_) & filter, I was able to better understand the proper Config MY car should be set as (The Car was front ended in 1979 by previous owner) and they omitted the filter but kept the ORIG external check valve. So I was able to come to terms with this detail. I had a NOS (AC marked) filter in the drawer from Old Classic Camaro orders back in the 80's. Chick sincerely thanks for taking the time to post the pic's

As a side note Both my LOS cars (68/69) have the 1" washers on the hinges, Could it be a Plant -vs- Plant thing?

Thanks Jim for both the kind words and the info from your LOS cars. We or I have viewed very few LOS cars and when I have never looked at the hinge to fender arrangement. Might just be a plant thing as suggested.

I don't know how consistent this would apply however I have seen quite a few original paint LOS cars with the wiper cowl stripe confined to the recess whereas many of the NOR cars have the stripe 1/4-3/8 outside the on the aft portion.

Great car and time capsule.
