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 ?
That tape was used by Fisher Body to seal the holes where the subframe bolts go through the floor pans when the body was water tested... so I am sure they used the same tape over the emblem holes on the spoiler cars.

I found some black masking tape online and used that.  Came out fine!

I just bought a new trunklid for my car. since it is a ProTouring car I wanted a cooler looking rearwing and I ordered a TransAm wing.

I want to save my present trunklid so I also bought a new repro from OER.

Now to the interesting part for thsi subject.

My Z/28 trunklid, car is a 05C, has the holes in the bracing for the Trans Am Spoiler, the OER trunklid don't.

My Z/28 trunklid has the two sets of holes for the emblem.


Original lid with TransAm spoiler holes in bracing


Repro lid without TransAM holes.

 I have a 06A X33D80 very late June build N6647XX and it has one set of holes in front of the spoiler, hope this helps some.

I have an 03E car that has both sets of holes in the deck lid.

I spoke with the original owner who purchased the car from dealer and the spoiler package (D80) was installed at the factory, not the dealership.

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

We have examples of that lid (the "second design" lid) from December, 1968.

Is this same information applicable to 1968 as well?

All 3 years have peculiar attributes, 68's are different then 69's. and there were 3 or 4  Deck lids for 67's as well.
