What we really need are some May cars with and with out D80 Trim tags with original decklids to really pin this down... anyone....
No Z11/Z10s were being made by the time the D80 code was added to the tag.
I have a 10 A 68 LA Z/28 that is a factory spoiler car and it has both sets of emblem holes,the stripes are the narrow 68 style and they go all the way to the edge of the decklid,witch is still original paint.
My 69 Z28 with a 08C date code on the cowl tag has one set of holes lower under where the spoiler sits. 99.9% pretty sure my car is all original sheetmetal. Was wondering why the holes are there and read the thread. I love this site!!
To my knowledge, all Camaro models had the script on the trunk. On spoiler equipped cars it was moved up from the normal placement.
On a factory spoiler car, the bottom straight edge of the emblem is 1-1/4" forward of the front edge of the spoiler, and the right edge of the "O" in Camaro is 4" from the edge of the lid.
I know the emblem holes were drilled on spoiler cars after the stripes were painted and my car should have the emblem.
My trunk lid on the Z28 has only one opening to get to the nuts under where the emblem would go on a spoiler D80 car. Could it be possible that my cars body was built and painted with the wrong trunk lid.
mine built 12B 1968 had what looked like black paper tape over the holes .
on top and wide enough to cover all holes from left to right in one piece . could it be the same type of tape used to tape frame bushings in place during assembly ?
I've been searching but no luck, what is the time frame for when the four holes started to appear on the underside of the deck lid for the Trans Am spoiler? I thought it was around the May time frame but I think it must have been earlier.Thanks,Jerry
Is this same information applicable to 1968 as well?
