Norwood stickers
« on: September 04, 2017, 07:52:10 PM »
 I am in the process of restoring my 69 ss camaro and when I removed the door panels and rear seat panels I came across the attached stickers which apparently came from the Norwood plant (which is good sine my VIN has an N). Can someone point me to a list of some sort that compiles the various stickers and markings that the plant used for 69? Thanks.

I don't know of a list but another good marking to look for on Norwood cars is the X code in crayon on the sheet metal behind the rear seatback on the passenger side. I believe it should be there unless your car was built prior to using X-codes.  Pre-12B

Crayon "X" code marks were used on pre 12B cars, as well as post 12B. That is one possible way to ID a pre X code (on tag) car. So, saying a car built prior to using X codes (on tag) would not have a crayon marking of X code behind rear seat is mis information.

Thanks. I was hoping to locate where various markings etc go when they came off the assembly line for example I know there are stickers on the disc brake shield. I am trying to restore as original as possible.

The best way to do that is to search and research build threads.  There are people here and on TC that have already gone through this process and detailed many of the items you are asking about.

Well that answers my question, I was about to start a thread asking this, just found them on my car.

Related question, I want to keep as much as I can original. So in the process of doing some body work and don't want anything to happen to the stickers. Whats the best way to protect and preserve them?

Best way to preserve details is to not take it to a body shop. Most shops take no care or interest in doing things “right”. If you like overspray on parts that should not have it, parts lost, work not done as asked, take it to a body shop. Otherwise, find a restoration shop that knows 1st gen Camaros.

Yes correct, that is why I'm trying to do as much as I can myself. But the quarter panels are beyond my skill level so will be farmed out, the shop is right next door to where I work so I can keep a eye on the car.

Just because they are next door doesn't mean it will be done as the factory did it. You have to decide if you want it done right or just installed.
The most skill and patiance is in removing the old quarters without cutting into other parts such as the brace supports.
Body shops are all about just getting it done and move on.

The last four jobs I took in were butchered by other shops, two of which were self proclaimed restoration shops. It is costly to repair a shop's hackwork. The convenience of a shop being next door should be last on the list of qualifications.

Thanks for the reply's and I did not mean to derail the OP's thread about the paper stickers.

I'm fully aware of what has been said and appreciate the concern, at this point I feel comfortable with the choice I've made. I'll be having one more  talk with the tech on taking things apart and how he plans to do it before I'll leave the car with them. In the end if it is not done correctly and a "Hack" job it's all on me and my fault for choosing them. I know how and what needs to be done but do not have the experience nor the correct equipment to do this work myself

But hey we all learned about those paper stickers, very interesting.
