    Never thought their were hardly any Camaro's in Great Britain. Their are plenty of Mini Coopers here in New Jersey. I used to own a 1981 Z-28 with cowl induction hood. Now I have 1970 Camaro SS 396. Good luck with your project.

    I think that sticker has to do with if the dealership had to repair a part of the door insides (glass, power windows motor, etc.) under warrantee they had to attach one-half of that sticker to get reimbursement from the factory.

    Cheers there is no filler in the car. It is very straight. And was still in its original paint. Only ever had abit of repair paint work on passenger door other them that its original. Bottom of the front fenders and bottom of doors require abit of work but it will get sorted. Im amazed with how good the car is.
