Paint sticker location confirmation

I searched through the sticker "Faq" and see that it looks like paint stickers go on the trunk lid on S1 spiders. But I can't find many images showing them. I looked here and on BAT. I have a US version '66 spider and an Italian version '69 spider. Can somebody please provide an image or two of the location of their S1 paint stickers?

Thanks,

photo is not captioned but pretty certain it's Geneva Motor show, '66

if I were restoring one, that's where I'd put it

so, nothing to do with sticker location, but I'm curious as to why the 1750 trunk lid looks longer than the 1600?
is it?
compare '66 geneva motor show car and Andy's nice green 1750 - the numberplate lights seem to have more space, plus there are a lot of extra holes on that inner lip, behind those lights as well as left and right.

I have a 1600 and a 1750 and both trunk lids are identical except for the locations of the badges and the holes you mention. Both lids are original as far as I know. The holes are for the installation of badges, I think, although my 1750 is a euro model with only the center badges.
