I am in the midst of a rotessiere restoration on a 1969 camaro pace car. The car is a norwood small block auto car no air, 12 bolt posi rear,built May 5th of 69. I would like some information  regarding inspection marks on the suspension and engine compartment. Any photos would be appreciated. Thanks

I am also doing a rotessiere on my 69 Z11, SB, 4Spd Norwood Car. I can't offer alot of specific help here, other than the Norwood P, T and B stamps on the firewall. 

Jerry MacNeish's Book The Definitive 1969 ... does have some relavent SB stuff and is a good reference.

ps email me and we can share other pics and knowledge...

When I had the front end of my 69 RS Coupe a part last year, I found a "2" or "R" on the left hand (driver) side of the firewall.  As you can see from the attached picture, it was not visible until the fender was removed.

To date, no one has been able to identify what this may have meant.

Not sure if this was common or not.  My car is an 01C Norwood built unit.

Pace--I found many marks on my '68 of different colors, and I've been told they don't mean anything because GM didn't use inspection marks until the '70s--that they were simply vendor markings. I found a yellow "L" on the RS frame under the A-frame at the shock hole, a long yellow scrawled mark on the LS underside of the frame forward of the A-frame, as well as lavender and orange markings on my spindles, ball joints, tie rod ends, and drag link. I also found "68" scrawled in yellow on a brake drum. They may not mean anything, but I'm duplicating them anyway. You only get one chance to put your car back the way it was.

I would think that no two cars were marked exactly the same.  Put back what you find on the car.

I thought that alot of the paint "daubs" were used for line workers to quickly identify similar parts.
