How exactly is the fender "396" emblem suppossed to be mounted? Seen it flushed/aligned with top of fender parking light and also seen it "off" a little. Also, was there orange overspray on the intake on 375HP cars?

Here's the location of the emblems in reference to the side marker. Looks like they are lined up even with the top of the marker light to me.

Jonesy - your pic looks correct but I've seen the emblems slightly higher or lower on some cars.

Z10 - sent you pics of the car I bought. Click on one to enlarge and you'll see what I'm talking about. Will bring to you when I get it for stripe paint.

No overspray on the manifold. It looks like there is some on the waterpump bypass hose too.

My 396 emblem is even with the top of the side marker.

Hey, how much you gonna sell it for?

I bought my car untouched and original paint in 1980. I restored it in 1982 and these pics are an exact copy of the original striping and emblem location. Although, I did go from black to white on the stripes. I am sure this is correct with the emblem top level with the top of the side marker. It shows this way with most original pics I have seen as I looked back through some books of mine.

Jonesy, I like the 'Ice Cold, MN ) as I grew up in St. Paul!

The assembly manual should have dimensions. In reality, I've seen so much variation in original cars that there is probably some leeway. We're talking 60's production lines here. At Carlisle, I saw original Yenkos with more variance than I would have thought. Anyway, I would go by factory specs in the manual.

The dimensions in the manual are useless. They are taken from imaginary centerlines and can not be used to locate emblems. They look great at first glance in the manual but actualy putting them to use is impossible. You cant measure off something that isn't there. All the holes are shown in relation to the other holes but you have nothing to start with. Just floating in space if you get my "drift"

Emblems varied quite a bit in production. The emblem holes in my original body parts were all very poorly located/angled. The tail panel holes were fine but the rest all were "off".

Thanks guys! I'll probably get rid of the overspray, any suggestions as to what I can use?

I would have thought some overspray would be correct... What methods did the factory use to keep the overspray off the manifold?

Try laquor thinner and a tooth brush to clean it off. If the manifold was alumi-blasted (light dusting of alum or silver paint) you may remove some of that as well though.

The engine plants used a molded plastic mask they dropped over the aluminum intakes, and dropped a coffee can over the distributor; not exotic stuff. At Flint Engine (small-blocks only), they ran 270 per hour through that little paint booth, so it wasn't a "concours" paint job!
