Sticker location 68 & 69

Hey I'm looking for help with location of a few stickers on first gen 68 & 69 Camaro. The cars a done with the exception of the rear leaf spring, front coil spring, backing plate, and GM door sticker location. I have an assembly manual but I can't find where to put these. Is there any published information or a sight with photos? I did place the coolant sticker and emissions sticker on the radiator support for the 68 which is a Z/28. Not sure if it should have the "caution fan" sticker, this car is more important than the 69 which doesn't have the correct engine. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Mark.

Re: Sticker location 68 & 69

Welcome Mark ! Sounds like some nice projects you've got going on. Would like to see some photos.

I'd recommend checking Lloyd's https://www.camaros.net/forums/133-b...post1783202815 and Chick's https://www.camaros.net/forums/133-b...stored-78.html build threads as both guys have done extensive research on originality and have done some top notch restorations. Also, CRG's "Originality Forum" Originality is a great place to see photos of unrestored, unmolested, survivor cars.

Here's what I can tell you from my limited experience;
The leaf spring tags should be near the front eye just behind the mounting bracket. I've seen survivor photos like this. Most restorations have the tag at the rear, near the shackles, so maybe either is correct, I'm not sure. I did notice Chick's at the rear. Would like to hear him chime in on that.

I believe coil spring tags were generally on the second or third coil from either the top or bottom. Have seen them both ways.

Disc brake backing plate sticker at the top, near the spindle. You can see how Lloyd placed his.

GM door sticker was factory installed on 67's only. They may've been dealer installed on a few 68/9's IMO, but obviously there's no hard evidence of that.

Coolant sticker was only on Canadian sold cars (First Gens), from what I understand.

No "Caution Fan" stickers, period! Probably the most common, incorrect sticker used on First Gen Camaros.

Hope that helps...

Research this one. I think my first 69 had a coolant sticker of some kind on the core support. I am sure it wasn't Canadian sold as I have the protect o plate around here somewhere and the selling dealer was Ed Fanning Chevrolet right here in Aurora IL

Note what William, John Z and Jerry M have to say...

stickers on core support and fan shroud 0f 69 z/28

Not many folks, if any, are more highly regarded, imo.

Considering I had 25 cars before I turned 25 this memory could be of something other than a Camaro. I'm sure I have no photograph to prove it was or wasn't there. I can picture that sticker like it was yesterday but what car it was on who knows.

You notice too much Garth! LOL Yes originally I had that wrong but later pics have that toward front of leave springs. As you recommended I have posted pics of two outstanding survivors on crg, Skipí68z and 69z.
