    Im having trouble finding SS 396 fender templates for a 70 ss 396. SS 350 may be the same.
    Does anyone have a old fender to get factory location. thanks

    The location of the emblems is in the Assembly Manual, but it is almost impossible to interpret them. An original fender to measure would be the best idea as you suggest.

    My fenders are original on my L78 with factory drilled holes. I will see if I can help here. My fenders are at the body shop about 1.5 hours away. I will reach out to them and see what they can do. But It won't be till next week.

    0 is fairly easy. You drop a plumb-bob around the fender aligned with the center of the top bolt hole in the fender. Kind of hokey, but if you take your time it can work. 15 not a fricken clue. The Views A and B are also worthless. I think I know what the intend, but actually trying to use them to establish the vertical placement would be a leap of faith.

    Crazy4camaro,

    It is imperative to keep in mind that the measurements are side specific, meaning the measurements for the drivers side are only for the drivers side and you CANNOT simply flip the template over for the passenger side. The passenger side has it's own measurements.

    Good Luck !

    COPO your pics got me to thinking, I have the Z28 emblems off my 73 z28. I can put decal sticky paper on my z28 to mark line 15 and 0 line
    using the 73 assembly manual measurements to find center. Then put the paper on my 70 ss to have the center lines.
    Thanks to everyone who sent PMS and post on this thread.
