I guess I have to do it the hard way.  New sheetmetal didn't come with holes or stripes.

Thanks for the help everyone!  I think I have enough info to get out the drill bits again...

Bob;
Yes I'm using L48-A4 from the AIM.  As it's been explained to me, the 20 and the 45 on the page refer to 45 inches forward of the mating surface of the fender where it mounts to the firewall.  The 20 is essentially 4.66 inches below the mounting surface where the fender bolts to the radiator support.  If you refer to 11-13 B8 of the AIM you get a description of this, somewhat.  The radiator support mount on the fender is listed as 24.66" (from the ground) so then 20 would be 4.66" lower than that if that makes sense.  To make a long story short, I used this explanation and used a square and a dial caliper (yes I'm anal!) and the holes came out nice and straight, but about 3/4" above the body line.  Not where they appear to be on original cars for the most part. I was extremely careful in my measurements, and they came out the same from the left to the right fenders, just much higher than I thought they should be.  The result was 12 holes welded shut and more metal finishing to get the fenders smooth again!

The one car I've seen in person that I've taken measurements from only had one side that was reliable due to damage on the driver's side.  Those measurements are basically what Charley has posted-I got 1" from the leading edge of the fender to the edge of the forward most "S" and 1/8" for measurement B and .2" for measurement C on the attached photo.

I've also read reports of questionable accuracy from the templates, so that was another reason for wanting to just do it by comparison.  The hardest thing seems to be that the emblems are not parallel with the body line but I think I'll be able to work it out.

I appreciate the help, Charley!  Thanks very much! Grin

Thanks for the lead, Larry.

I was hoping not to have to spend the money just to get two measurements as I can put the rest together from the AIM.  Still would like to obtain these if anyone has a good candidate with original emblem hole placement.

Thank you!

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I'm trying to track down a few measurements for the placement of SS emblem on my 67 fenders.  I have the AIM and can get the placement for the rest of the holes but I need to establish the horizontal and vertical placement.  If there is anyone who could take a look at fenders with original holes and take measurements as shown in the photo for A, B, and C I would be grateful! I'd be interested in comparing the measurements between the left and right sides if possible also. The top edge of the paper has been placed on the center body line.  Hopefully this is clear as mud and posting the photo works. 

Thanks for any help!

I'll try it again.  I did resize it the first time but maybe not enough.  Thanks for the direction, Paul.

Kurt,

I sent an email as my attempts to attach a photo didn't work.  It was a jpeg file so not sure why it wouldn't take it.

I have run across another MW block from a 67 Camaro.  There are a couple things different about the block stamps.  The first thing is that the 1 in T032(1)MW is actually an I and not the number 1. 

The second peculiar thing is that in the VIN section of characters there appears to be a partial top to the letter L in the first position.  You cannot make out the entire letter, it's only the top portion.  And it is in the first postition where the 7 typically goes.  The second digit in the VIN section is 7.  So it appears that the L and the 7 have been transposed.  Never seen that before, has anyone else? I can email a photo of it if needed.

This block had a rod punched through the side of it but there may be other pieces to it if someone has the car.

I have this engine if someone has the car!

Thanks,
