 Hi I was looking on ebay and saw an orange 69 z/28 car that had 2 stickers on the core support and one on the fan shroud. I know one on the core support would be the timing sticker.Is the other a high octane fuel sticker? the one on the fan shroud looks like a sticker for the antifreeze.None of the stickers are legible from the pics.If  all these are correct, what is the proper placement of them.thanks

The only one that is correct is the "tune-up" label. The other two do not belong there.

It is usually on the core support although occasionally located on the fan shroud as on my last '69 Z/28.

I checked several vintage magazine tests and it is left of center in the photos.

I am almost certain I have seen the tune-up sticker location delineated in the 67 & 68 AIM's.  Will have to see if I can find the section/page.

Pic from my former 02A LA built Z.  My Dec. '68 LA built RS had it on the rad shroud.

Found the tune up sticker location for 68 in the AIM on page 20.  UPC 0/B1.  Shows sticker to be placed 3.5" to the left (driver side) of the center line of the car.  BTW, I didn't find in the 67 AIM and I don't have a 69 AIM to reference.

I believe the tune up sticker should be on the drivers side of the core support, the coolant sticker on the pass side.

The sticker placed on the shroud seems to be more common on the LOS cars and/or AC cars due to the seal that runs across the core support.

the coolant sticker on the pass side.

The coolant sticker belongs in the drawer. Not used on US sold 69s.

I just received my copies of Jerry MacNeish's two books and here's what Jerry has to say about the ignition timing decals:

1967 Z/28: "The 1967 Z/28 was not equipped with an ignition timing decal."

1968 Z/28: "This decal was mounted on top of the radiator core support (driver's side)."

1969 Z/28: "The 1969 302 and SS350 ignition timing decal was mounted in two different locations. Factory workers either installed it on the fan shroud or the radiator core support."

I recommend anybody with a Camaro (let alone a Z/28) get these two books. I haven't put mine down since I got them. Outstanding job Jerry!

August '69 issue of Car Life mag tests a cross ram / JL-8 Z28, and has the tune up sticker on the fan shroud- for reference. Sounds like both locations were used as JM states.

In this thread regarding firewall painting, there is a picture of JohnZ's original Z.  There are two stickers on the core support.  Any idea what the 2 stickers are?

Here's a photo, but you can't really see the separation due to the dark body color - it's generally along the sealed seam between the cowl and the floor pan, just below the cowl tag.

At this point, I would just like to find an emissions sticker that will actually "stick".

The third one is peeling up, all of them have been within a day or two. Sad

The one on the driver's side is the emission/tune-up sticker, and the one on the passenger side is a coolant sticker; you can also see the GM of Canada oil change recommendation sticker where the heater hoses clamp to the inner fender; the car was sold new in Canada, and has the original GM of Canada documentation.
