    That's the tag on the cowl, right? What was the original finish? Should it be shiny aluminum or painted? Black paint is coming off mine, so could do either. Just want to dress it up a bit.

    That's the cowl tag or trim plate.
    The POP came with the documentation for the car. It's not attached to it.

    I believe they were all painted black.

    I also believe the POP was only on a camaro till 1969. Someone else will need to confirm.

    This is why I gave the location, wasn't sure if it was POP or not. So, cowl tag should be black then?
