Thanks for your help. As i said in my original post, someone on Team Camaro said the lid was flocked. (Perhaps that was you?) After reading your post here last night, I laid in bed wondering if that is right. It occurred to me as a tossed and turned that I had an original lid from my other '69 Z that I replaced a couple of years ago. This moring I went hunting through my old parts ("never throw anything away!") and found the lid. Sure enough, it was flocked! If you hadn't posted here, I never would have even considered it. The lid has already been flocked and is drying. Thanks again. You saved me points at Nationals next year. What was the build date of your Z?
Flocking is a coating of felt on a surface. It looks and feels great to the touch. You can purchase a flocking kit from Eastwood that does a nice job. Basically, you paiint glue on the surface to be flocked, then sprinkle the flocking material onto the suface and let it dry. When dry, you vacuum off the loose flocking and are left with a flocked surface.
