So when did they quit piercing the deck lid down low where the spoiler went?  My 08A car does not have any unused holes under the spoiler.

I found these pictures transferring files to a new computer. Hood, roof, and trunk lid were still in original lacquer.

On a side note my painter, a PPG sales rep. matched the Dusk Blue BC/CC used on my car to the original lacquer under the spoiler that had never seen the light of day. Lots of different laser scans and spray outs were done as PPG's 51 code then was too purple. Someone else was painting a "high dollar" car 51 code about that same time and PPG donated a gallon to me for the use of my deck lid.

...finally had the trunk stripe issue addressed by my painter, I added a PN 7752901 emblem and for the tape seal (following several attempts and suggestions), I used the 3M Temflex 1755 which has a texture close to the original and is a fabric style.

Just saw this thread Lloyd. My 05A Norwood Z has dum dum sealing the extra holes. Iíve owned it since Ď78, so pretty sure thatís the way it came! Your car looks great by the way!

Interested thread, research, and findings for comparable tape.  Nice work Lloyd and others!   

So I have an  '69 April-built Van Nuys Z.  I have no evidence if it came with tape or dum dum stuff to seal up the emblem holes as it was repainted a few times over the years. 

Was there a time period that it may have switched to dum dum from tape, or?

FWIW, My April (C) LOS pacer had tape when I did  a Fluff of the incorrect painted Lip of the trunk lid, & I scraped this strange tape that I thought was put on during a 1981 repaint. Just a story as I never thought it held any significance in 1995.

I have a Friend Craig that has a unrestored 04 LOS Pacer (Off the Grid) guy but I am not sure I can get him to pull the spoiler.

Thanks.  Excellent data point as mine is an 04B VN build date.

A side question arose that I thought I should address, Why was I using the larger 4721222 trunk lid rubber bumper rather than the smaller profile version? My Norwood 2B build RS Z was factory optioned with the shorty '68 carryover rear spoiler and used the same 472 bumper used in '68 production until the full width spoiler was phased in during February-early March 69.

Given that the first 50 Yenkos built the 2nd week of January had wide spoliers, it's kind of odd that they were not installed on other cars until Late Feb.

James, I understand that February was a transition month during which the carry-over shorty spoiler inventory was used up. From what I have seen, there are examples of both shorty and full width spoilers being installed in-production during February 1969 and as late as early March. As the January built Yenko cars were COPO orders its "possible" they were given priority.

Exactly what I have seen as well Lloyd, I had just observed and wondered about the Yenkos... After dealing with the 02D
 Daytona Yellow Berger RS COPO (narrow spoiler) and then Daves Yellow X66 01B Yenko which solidified the whole thing in my mind.

BTW... your car looks incredible.

Only a few early LA cars have been found with the 68 stripe layout and the latest car know of, I believe was built the 1st or 2nd week of October.
We have 2nd week of September built Norwood cars which have the 69 style stripe layout.

Long research topic on Deck lid emblem piercings covered here :http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3752.0
The synopsis: when Firebird production was merged with Camaros at Norwood in April/May a non pierced decklid became necessary due to the fact that firebirds did not have emblem holes which matched Camaros AND the T/A spoiler would not cover like the Camaro spoiler did.
