Cowl Tag
« on: April 02, 2009, 12:07:01 AM »
Hi, Does any one know if it is normal to take the cowl tag off to paint the car? I have a 1967 that was painted and they took the cowl tag off, do most people do this?

Most people that care about their cars don't touch the cowl tag.  It was on the car before it got its initial primer coat in the factory.  Removing the tag only causes people to question the tags authenticity and originality.

Thats right! When I had my Camaro restored, I instructed them not to touch the cowl tag.

Lisa -

I tried to get opinions about your cowl tag from your original post ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=5196.0 ) = no responses.

Let's try it again...

lisatrent04, it is obvious from that picture the tag has not been removed for "restoration" as you state above because the engine compartment was never restored. The numbers of the car line up with the vin and build date, the color on the car as it is now is wrong, and other than a missing rear antenna all else is correct per the trim tag: tinted windshield, RS, dlx blue interior, interior chrome pkg, powerglide trans, and console. So I don't know why 1968RSZ28 is asking for opinions about the tag as nothing is out of place...........RatPack...........
