Question Trunk lid decal placement?

I have a new trunk lid on my '71 442. Have new decals. Don't know the proper placement for the decals. Can someone please help me out with a pic or diagram? Or direct me to where I can find one? Would it be in the Assembly manual? I'm not having any luck finding it. Need decals on the car tomorrow before a big car show over a Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you, anyone who's willing to assist.

No biggie! You have a great turkey day my friend.

FYI I would not get real picky about being very square with them. I believe mine are not perfect.

Hey, thanks for that...don't know how I overlooked that one. Well actually I do. I've been ordering so much for the car lately, it's been a challenge to keep up with all of it from order placement through delivery. It's even possible that I have ordered one and missed it in the box. lol Either way, thanks for calling that to my attention.

Thanks so much!! I would have been back here asking for a pic had you not been kind enough to do so. Much appreciated.

LOL @ crooked. If you think that's bad....I have a BIG problem. I just got my car back from paint. I had one day to get it show ready. I had a few issues with the paint and took it back to be buffed out again. And the Thornton hood needed some real minor tweaking. Thought I was good. Got to Autorama in Houston and was doing some final detailing and O! M! G!....the 442 fender emblems are so crazy crooked, it's unbelievable. It had to have taken a lot of effort to get them THAT crooked. I felt like I was going to throw up, pass out, and then some. So embarrassing. I'm mad at myself for not paying better attention. I was so focused on the issues with the paint, that I completely missed the emblems. Plus, that is just not something I would have expected from such a reputable shop. I would think that THEY would have caught it when I brought it back for them to buff the car on Monday. Did they not think I was going to notice? Or did they not notice? Anyway....my crooked emblems trump your crooked decals. LOL Thanks again for the pics.

welcome to the frustration of restoring a car. Same thing happened to me, body shop convinced me to use repo fenders "lost" my originals and put the emblems on crooked as well. At least crooked sticker are "factory original" placement
