Urgent Help - Decals

Hello Crew ,

Big day tommorow with our annual roundup , we expect 100+ cars
possibly 1 other special and mine

I need some advice

what is the correct engine bay decal on the shock tower and does anyone have the dimensions of where the the door data plate goes.

Mine was missing , but i have managed to get another from Marti - just not sure where it actually goes. Drill hole size would b nice to please.

I also have a variety of Trunk decals - any ideas here?

The door data plate goes on the end of the drivers door, the holes (2) should already be there. Not sure where all the stickers go.

Good Luck.

"engine bay decal on the shock tower"

Location depended on a couple of things. (picture of a May 68 San Jose X code about 30K original miles- have others if needed)



The decal on the drivers side shock tower is mounted high like in the picture and in other cases (likely different worker or lack of AC) was mounted lower


In Jason pictures my opinion would be not to include the FRONT decal or the decal located on the passenger side shock tower (normally that one is on the drivers side valve cover as shown in the picture). BTW Jason do you have pictures of either of these when the car was original? Just asking

Decal Help

I would also appreciate the correct location of each decal. I purchase the entire kit but am not certain where they should be placed. I was under the impression that the "Caution" decal on the fan shroud was not original. The decal was shipped after production. What's the story?

Thanks

Correct the CAUTION decals are not factory but sent out or placed on cars during the early 70's.

Plenty of forums (including this one) have gone over this in the past

CobraMan list the decals you got in the kit (what you get varies depending on who made them) and we'll help with where they go and which ones you will throw away ;) or put on your tool box

Yes that decal was placed at the engine plant before it was shipped. These engines were shipped with the valve covers in placed so no reason for them not to be there

Getting a head start on sections for Paul's book aren't we ;)

Battery Test OK Decal - Should be the black print one rather than the blue one IMHO


Service Specification Decal - Drivers side shock tower

Cubic Inch decal - outer raised area of air cleaner lid

AutoLite Sparkplug Air cleaner decal - Not typical on a later 68 San Jose car

Emission Tune-Up Decal (302-351) - Drivers side valve cover

Air Cleaner Service Instruction Decal - On air cleaner base - drivers side

Most are visible in the picture below


WOULD NOT USE

Air Cleaner Front Decal - Not original to our cars

Caution Fan Decal - not original

Coil Decal - Better would be the correct ink stamp as decals were never used and the decal you got has a 1970 date on it

Voltage Regulator Decal - originally an ink stamp one also. Think AMK is selling the stamped lids
___________________________________________

Door Tire pressure decal - Believe it goes in the glove box. Door jamb application of this type of decal started in 69

____________________________________________
Jacking instructions decal - though found in a couple of odd spots on a few original cars (drivers side wheel housing and under the spare on the trunk floor) majority were as follows- Passenger side of the trunk lid when open

Trunk Lid Certification Decal - Passenger side of the trunk lid when open. More often lower (on the flat area inside the triangle on the passenger side ) than where it ended up on this original car.




Jack Decal - On the long lowest (as you look at it) arm on the jack assembly



Rear Gravel Pan Tie Down Decal - Under the rear lic plate location

no pre restoration pics. Car was fully restored in early 90's in Canada.

That silver sticker on the valve cover sure looks bad. I could swear I read somewhere about the passenger shock tower was used ocassionally? Anyone confirm a original that had it there?

Here are pictures of my car. Not original. I applied them to the best of my ability in the location where they were suppose to go, where they made sense, and where they looked the best.
