Then I'm confused, Ed.

The one in the first post is a non RS car but the one you linked to is an RS car. They don't appear to have the same cowl tag.

If you look above, you'll see this reply to your question:

Are these the same car?

Sort of.  There are two cars pictured in that thread.  The car that's the subject of this thread is shown in the before and during stages.  Then, there is a car shown at a car show.  That sort of looks like an after photo of this car.  It's not.  It's a different car that looks very similar to this one.  So, when you scroll through that thread, just know that the pics of this car end in the restoration phase ... there isn't a final after photo in that thread.

Regarding if the trim tag should or should not be removed during restoration depends on several factors:
1.) Can you be absolutely sure it will not be taken by someone at while the car is in the body shop?
2.) Can you be absolutely positive the tag will not be damaged during the restoration?
3.) How much rust is there behind the tag...a small amount is probably okay.
4.) Your person comfort level leaving it on and how much you trust the body shop/person you are dealing with.

When I restored my '69 Z28, I first purchased some NOS rivets used to reattach the tag. Before removing the tag I photo documented the tag, the original rivets along with the amount of seam sealer was used to close off the rivet holes.

After reading a few horror stores how some folks' tags were removed and stolen, I removed mine and kept it save until after the body was primed and ready for paint and firewall black out. I also wanted to reproduce the natural body color and firewall black out overspray on the tag.

Just my 2-cents worth!

That interior is spectacular.  I'm a sucker for all the wonderful non-black interiors ... as an owner of boring black deluxe interior.
