Thinking of going the extra mile and adding these factory markings, other than looking at some restored cars, which may be right or not, is there some source out there?

The "source", is your own vehicle, duplicate what you "discover" on your vehicle.....no 2 cars are the same, nor plant to plant, different shift workers, none, or different marks, don't mimic what others have on their vehicles,.....who's to say it's correct

Well since it was previously restored and no markings were put on, it would be impossible to know what was there.  Going by the premise that there was no uniformity, I can just place markings in various locations based on what I see on other restored cars and no one can absolutely state they are incorrect.  Time to get creative.

It's your car, do what you wish, but I wouldn't waste my time or money putting marks where their might not have been some, or were different than originally done.   Twocents
