    Do you want to go off assembly line spec or actual? I can for sure say the assembly line didn’t get it right in many cases. When I drilled my spoiler holes, the factory was slightly crooked. When I did my emblems on my last fenders I cut the tangs off an old one and lined it up and verified it was in the right spot and looked straight.

    You got that right Robby. On my unrestored 70Z the fender emblems are 1/4" different fore and aft.

    Steve, assembly line workers probably thought you can't look at both sides at the same time, just close enough.

    An eye opener is that Graveyard Cars show with the Mopars. Mark Worman fully documents cars that he restores and to see the assembly line slop is interesting. Some things like the paint and decals he perfects and makes better than the factory per spec, but some things are duplicated...purposeful mess ups lol. I guess it depends on what your after. If you really looked over a car (some people have), you’ll see the crooked stripes, decals that are too high or too low, missing hardware, trunk lid holes drilled high...do you want it per spec or as original?

    20210103_192705.jpg 20210103_192245.jpg 20210103_192245.jpg Here is the dimension from my original drivers side fender. My SS is a 350, I think the engine size emblem is the same. 350 to 396. I hope this helps. Shawn

    Santa brought a new tablet. Pictures are upside down. Dimensions are from the radius on the wheel & the crease on the middle of the fender. I also took these from my old phone.

    These dimensions is from the fender, door gap. Using the fender edge to establish placement. And crease edge down to establish placement. Last picture shows layout. Was able to pull from my old phone. To get a better idea of lay out dimensions. Instead of taking a picture of it off my phone.
