    So I've seen several photos of this year body style with either the badge look emblem, or the Z28 emblem lower passenger side. First, from what I can see the 79 Camaro Z28 had the center badge correct? I'm not sure how the badge/emblem is mounted or held on by. I've seen a emblem holder on ebay just wasn't sure.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    A 79 Camaro (Z28, Berlinetta, RS or Sport Coupe) all used the same grill emblem.

    A metal bracket and two nuts holds the center grill emblem in place.

    A similar bracket was used for the grill emblem in 80-81.
    However... The grill is different and the brackets are not interchangeable.
    You need the bracket for a 78-79 grill.

    You can now order a reproduction one for 1979 online. I got mine from jeggs. They are $79.99

    Does that repop emblem come with the metal bracket?
    (My son's 79 needs both parts.)
