Per my last pic.;
  Is that the way it was done at the factory?  It looks to be a thicker paint brushed on?  After the tank and straps were in place?

It looks like my tank was sprayed with the straps on. The bottom is fully covered along with the the upper side above the seams.

Updated compilation. 67 has a calendar week code. 16 D 7 would be the 16th week of 67, day shift. 40 6N would be 40th week of 66, night shift.
The format changed in 68 and 69 to have the week counted from the beginning of the model year. The extended 69 year used tanks dated for the 70 model year.

GaryL...  what is so wrong with you tank that it cannot be saved?    You can chemically clean and then seal the interior.   you can bead blast, clean and then spray the outside with galvanie paint.. you can replace the sending unit, filter sock, etc... so why can't you 'make it look good' again?

Gary / 69Z28-RS .. (whose original  tank now has a 'drain'  - where I replaced a 'hole' with a screw in seal').. Smiley  ..  and actually, I didn't have to beadblast mine; I just used fine abrasive to clean the outside, then clear coated it...

Here's the date(s) from the gas tank on my 04B Van Nuys '69 Camaro RS Z28:

Fuel Tank:  33 69
Fuel Sending Unit Lock:  31 9

Unfortunately, in order to save the chassis broadcast copy, I ruined the tank (had to cut it out).
