    This thread and the pictures you’re posting for everyone is great.
    I noticed a piece of the tail panel trim is missing. Goes to show you why almost everyone else’s is missing too.
    Close pictures of the remaining sections would be great with the chrome and black width dimensions.
    I’m going to copy off the images you’ve posted for reference. If there’s s location where I can download them all at once, let us know.
    Another thing I noticed is the greased parking brake cable where it runs under the drivers floor. I was thinking that there’s a part missing on my car and it shouldn’t rub but your car suggests that’s how they made it.

    Wasn’t a jam nut used on the shifter knob?

    The good part is that the piece of trim that fell off is in the trunk.

    I had those aftermarket lock nobs on both of my Z28's when I was a kid. Those were a must to have a chance of keeping your car.

    I used to challenge myself at the salvage yards to see how fast I could get in with the stock knob and a coat hanger. Never took me longer than 20 seconds to pop the lock and I was in. Won a couple of lunches that way.

    My door locks on my 71 Z28 froze in the winter and the only way I could get in was with a coat hanger. Got under 10 sec.

    Here is a attempt to give you a idea of the tail panel trim dimensions. IMG_0354.jpg IMG_0305.jpg IMG_0306.jpg IMG_0307.jpg IMG_0308.jpg IMG_0309.jpg IMG_0310.jpg IMG_0311.jpg IMG_0312.jpg

    Outstanding tail panel pics - thanks! I’ve copied all your pics for reference even though I want to own that car someday.
    Are you going to keep it?
