Delay in Getting New Window Decals Out...

Just when I'd mailed the last flier out, I offered the Window Decals again--four types-- 1968, HCS, 2007, 2008.

The reason that they are delayed is because I was looking for a new supplier, wanting more opaque decals, because of the issue of too much transparency with the original ones....and I didn't really want to send more of those out.

What this meant was re-doing the artwork, which meant dropping the fourth color, and that would have meant boring-looking decals.

SOOO.....I was just told that in short runs, I'm able to get full color ones made.

SOOO.....This coming week, I'll be sending the digital artwork to PA., and they will be made ASAP.

Sorry for the delay. I was working on an upgrade when the orders hit. I have about 50 of the 1968 version on order right now, and several for 2007-2008.

And-- I'm supposed to get the official 2008 prod, number in a day or two. This is part of the hour-long phone interview I had with the GT/CS project manager at Ford last Thursday for the book (in which when you read it--you'll be SO GLAD that you own a 2007-2009 GT/CS!--it's quite an awesome story!!).

Sorry for the delay.

To order decals (choice of: '68 GT/CS; '68 HCS; 2007 or 2008 GT/CS), they are $10 each. They are (will be) in color and are 3" diameter.

and/or....To get information on the Book, send an SASE to:

There was a 2008 production target number of 7,400 or so, but they added one more week of production....so my contact at Ford has to chase that number down ASAP.

I want it accurate, and yes, it will be on the decal.

I'd like to do a 2009 decal, but I won't have a prod, number on that one (too early). Those white stripes look awesome!

Well, I'm sure that it pushed Ford over the top to do it. The CS project manager at Ford wanted white stripes for '07, as well as several other things.

I'll let you in on something cool....I'll be getting the concept photo of the '07 CS for the book....and then you all can build your CSs up to what they originally wanted. For instance, the Shelby GT rear spoiler was originally meant for the CS. Prepare for some awesome information!!

Anyway-- regarding decals. The order will go in tomorrow (Mon, Oct 27th). Stay tuned

Now don't be stupid, how can he make sure the numbers don't change, thats Fords issue.
As for paying for two and only getting one, I have no clue. I do know he was running short or it may have been an oversite, chill a bit. Give him a chance to fix things.
If you follow the directions on the return I am sure you will be happy.
sounds like someone is a bit...
