Thanks John. I have all my proper emblems now and I have most improper "Z" tags removed so I can see how they all line up now. I was trying to get the info before I ordered anything and the nice folks at "Ground Up' took the time to get old Z emblems and match the holes up to the SS emblems for me before I ordered them. I give them a big "A" for customer service and an "A" to you guys on the forum for all your help so far. I know when I get to the cut off emergency brake cables Ill be asking Q"s for the the usual missing info in the assembly book!

If I remove the 2 non stock Z-28 fender emblems will the proper "350" mount in the same holes? Im guessing the Z has a higher tab on the letter Z which makes a 3rd hole that id have to fill in and repaint!

What determined the underside hood insulation? Did it come into play when a specific option or engine size was picked?

I have used several cadwell kits. The zinc is great and if you wire wheel the parts 1st they get more or silver cad look.tha said, the kits work better using a battery charger instead if batteries. Btw the zinc kit from Eastmans is a great bsrgin too. I alsi used the cadwell nickel kit. You must heat up the acids 1st but the kit includes the heater. You can only use the chemicals for singular metals as they are pre mixed for specific metals.
