    We just got a 1970 Z28 clone/tribute car in and we're doing our walk-around and noticed that there is no trim panel under the glass between the glass and the package tray on this car. It has the sail panels, but no trim in between the sails. I've never done a post 1969 Camaro or Firebird and NPD doesn't list a part number for this (that I can find). Anyone willing to help a 1970-78 newbie out?

    The only trim I know of is at the top of the glass. Never seen any trim on an early 2nd gen in between the bottom of the sail panels. Just the metal lip that the end of the panels screw into.

    There is no plastic trim piece that goes between the 2 sail panels. The steel trim that's welded on gets painted the same color as the sail panels.

    Should the words "happy" and "sanding" be put together?

    FWIW OP, your project is definitely not a Z28 as it has factory AC which was not available with RPO Z28 in 1970. I'm also inclined to think it's not an original RS only because the bright belt trim is missing from tops of fenders and rear edge of hood (it should continue the line from the top of the doors). Those pieces are a lot harder to install than the door trim (screws instead of factory Nelson rivets or just donor doors). Hope that helps.
