I had a similar issue with my Weathertech floor mats for our Envoy.

Re: So much for "Made in America"

Now why would they make a sticker to put on a place on a manifold that says that? Just cast the USA into the manifold in the first place.

So did I. One was completely off when I unpacked it, the other was half off and slide to the side almost off the area where it belonged.

It's cheaper and easier to get the red, white, and blue with a sticker..

I painted right over the one on the Performer Vortec that is on my Camaro..
