Vince, Awesome thanks for the contribution!!!  It does appear to be on the third veritcal though, I think the stripe is the key and the placement of the emblem in relationship should be the same RS vs. Standard.  Any more pictures anyone else has would be great.

Regards,

I think Jerry hit it on the head; forget the verticals or RS or not..  just center the Z28 emblem under the driver's side stripe...   I spent some time going thru all the photos I have saved for the last few years, and the more original cars do have the Z28 emblem laterally centered under the LHS stripe and centered vertically... :) ..    ie..  check the original car that Chick and Skip recently found....  :)

That's what I get for buying a Stripe Delete Z/28.

Placement is pretty straight forward because of the guides that are on the back of the emblem.  On the Standard grill it is a given and everyone knows its location that is why I think it looks awkward if it is placed anywhere else, standard, RS or even stripe delete :-).  Wonder if this should be a research project?  Any feedback from the Legend judges on this issue for the RS grill?

OK OK.  you get to put your Z28 emblem in the center, or use the RS emblem.. :)

So is my Z/28 grille emblem in the correct location now? If it is, I had to use a pic of another car to get right. Not as simple as one would think.

Jim, it looks 'slightly to the right' to me.. not exactly centered under the stripe...?   It's hard to tell, but it appears that it's between two verticals, rather than astraddle the 3rd verticle??

I tried to match the emblem on John Z's Car. See his attached pic.


I see what you mean about centered on the stripe from the pic of the orange Z above. Are the standard and RS grilles in the same relationship as far as the square openings are concerned? My striping and the orange Z's appear to be close to the same?

I don't have two grills (RS and non RS) to compare, but I'm beginning to think the square opening aren't the same (ie. the egg crate openings have different dimensions between the two grills).     I think if you go back to 'centering under the stripe'..   you'd be best off.    Isn't JohnZ's emblem centered under his stripe?

Don't have a John Z Pic of emblem and hood Stripe to compare. But if you look closely, the 2 verticals behind the "8" and Behind the "Z" are the oriented same on his and mine. That's how I tried to line mine up. I'm assuming I'm aligned with the horizontals.
