Seems odd that the doors and trunk lid were on the cars when dipped. Was that a coating dip or a cleaning?

Looks like a cleaning solution. Probably removes dirt and oils before paint. At Norwood I thought these cars were also dipped in the primer.

Look carefully at the rear package tray defroster opening and you will see those are 1970 bodies in the “red river” ELPO primer bath. Those are a mix of photos of the cars from 1972’s strike and the new for 1970 Fisher body primer tank.

When a door, fender, and sometimes even a hood is taken off an untouched, original vehicle, there's bare metal under the hinges. Been that way as long as I can remember. That's how the ELPO bath is done, with parts attached.

Bud I can see getting confused,the second picture “All partically assembled 1972 Camaros”
The trunk divider can be seen witch also indicates 1970 only .
