Go out and buy the assembly manual. All the specs you need are there.

I agree. The trunk emblem goes, well on the trunk :). I want to say it goes in the middle (if there's no spoiler), but as noted the assembly manual is the way to go.
However, I'm not sure if 1976 is available. In lieu of that, a GM parts book will tell you what you want to know. If it's on the trunk in the middle, center it using a ruler and apply it.

Well the Firebird bird definately goes in the center, but apparently there is supposed to be both a "PONTIAC" and "Esprit" logos on either side... which I only found out after looking at a 1976 Firebird brouchure... everyone seems to have retrofitted the (ugly IMO) spoiler, or removed them for some reason (like my case...)
I'll go looking for a manual, any tips on where to find one outside of ebay/etc? I know I can get Corvette assy. manuals anywhere, but I haven't seen Firebird ones (not that I have looked extensively... yet)

Some people like me, like the spoilers on them. I personally think they look naked with out them. I like fender vents, and big nostril hoods that look like there going to suck the world thru the engine. I also prefer the 1970 to 1974 rear windows to the 75 up curved rear glass. That's all a matter of taste.
The Assembly manuals can e found, if you look often enough. I see them at swap meets, usually 2 or 3 vendors that carry full sets of GM service manuals from 1960 to 1995, for every model.
When it comes to e bay, just keep looking. set your favorite search to 1976 firebird manuals.

Well, let's see.
1) You could look on EBay for the same kind of car and look at the pics.
2) You could do a Google Image search for 78 Firebird Esprit.
3) You could just to a Google search and dig a little.
Or you could post in here, without even bothering to look for yourself. Which is pretty lame.

Cars on ebay all have spoilers... Google image / non-image all has the spoiler (or no rear shot, or nothing I can really tell from)

First from what I read, you did not specify that you wanted without spoiler shots but heres two one with a spoiler and one without, help comes from this group if you are specific in what you are asking. There are many here that have forgotten more about birds and transams than most have known about them.

Any More search engines bring up so much unrelated crap, at times it's hard to find what you want. Yet someone else might phrase it different and find exactly what you want the first try. Also not all search engines list the sites you need to look at.
A good example of this: I have been trying to sell a dust collector on E-bay for a while. It's probably around 20 years old, yet in good shape, still works, has a new motor in it.
I had 2 people e mail me and say they couldn't find any information on the manufactory, or on it. I found in 2 minutes that the manufactory had been bought out, and moved from California to Ohio. Where they still make similar units to this day.
Yet I couldn't find any sites that delt with that specific model. From what I gather older industrial equipment is one of the least documented things on line. Where as cars like F-body's are very well documented on line.

I have the 80 Firebird assy manual... I can look up the measurements, but I dunno if they'll be the same for a 76...
Is it a resto and you want exact? If not, put 'em where you want 'em. :)
