Re: Emblem placement

Do you have the big Helm's Service Manual for your car?

I think that info is in there.

Re: Emblem placement

The center of the sail panel. That should be here on the site:

Re: Emblem placement

No, not the center of the sail panel. I have templates for all the emblems I can send out if you need them. I've gotten a few requests of late, but to be honest I deleted them by accident.

Re: Emblem placement

I was just repeating what this site said for the placement. If not the center, what is the exact location? Templates are awesome.

Re: Emblem placement

Well, how nice to see that CAR Motorsports just lifted the template from The Source Page. Is that the only one there? I remember loaning them several emblems to color match when they wanted to start selling replacement emblems, but these was no talk of using the positioning templates on their website.

Man, that hacks me off to no end. Those are supposed to be for owners use only.... not public domain documents.

collin, send me your email and I'll send them along to you.

Yeah, I'll send them a note. Funny, since one of the guys who started that company is a lawyer.... and we've had copyright infringement talks before about other entities.

Re: Emblem placement

The template pic is still on their site. They wouldn't remove it?

Re: Emblem placement

Hey Frankie,

I have never heard about why this information cannot be shared publicly but has to be by PM etc. Not sure why this would be?

It's to help keep individuals from simply doing some simple research on the website and then slapping emblems on a Firebird and then advertising it as an authentic GTA for sale. One of the authenticity tips on this forum is to look precisely where the emblems are placed on the car. I use this emblem placement tip when looking at GTAs for sale.

Re: Emblem placement

I'm a member over on Third Gen as well and there was a similar thread about this very same thing over there. The last post on that thread basically says exactly why the locations aren't something that should be thrown out to the general public.

Re: Emblem placement

I'm looking for the template for emblem placement myself. Can someone email me the templates? Would be much appreciated :P.

My car is currently at paint and I removed all the badges and will need to know the correct locations to put them back.

Oddly when I received the car one of the PO's had actually moved them to the center and you could see where they had previously been.

Car sat for a long time and paint was badly faded on roof and hood.
