    I spent a little time looking for the rubber plugs for the rear quarters/trunk - thought I would share this info. I guess all Norwood cars have them because they were dipped.

    Anyway this ebay Vendor has them $10 (not original OE type which I guess were green) they do fit snug (install w/pliers - but I know they wont pop out), and fit this way on my 1979 (even though they list as for '67 to '72).

    I'm pretty sure my 80 has metal plugs in the drop-offs.

    If these fit... Great! (They won't rust.)

    I think that is a good point - but I have to drive a bit this early spring and I really don't want road salt/sand in there. I think it can breath through the trunk ok.

    You are correct!

    I know of many original 70 Camaro's that have their original plugs still in place and they don't have any issues

    Lots of new sheetmetal laying around over here.

    I would but I brought the camaro out of hibernation yesterday because my 'reliable winter car' went down for a few days waiting on parts - unfortunately I've just been stalling everywhere in the camaro (and test driving around town) because I mucked up my winter carb rebuild/tune or something - never a dull moment :mad:

    hey - can you drive my daughter to work tomorrow? - as I have her car. :confused:

    Thanks, I just ordered a set. Bought a bag from McMaster Carr awhile ago, they didn't fit, and I just forgot about them.
