31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 L48/LM1 Automatic "Keep Your GM Car..." Decal Info Wanted on: July 31, 2012, 12:59:22 PM
I was approached in early 2011 to see if we could do one of these air cleaner decals.  The code was CT part number 6485904.  I do not recall the name of the enthusiast nor what application it was for.  The overall layout was the same as reflected in the picture of the original DE decal posted in here earlier.  However, that CT had the code and number in a different vertical alignment on the original decal than this DE one.  Also, the font for the code was smaller.  The repro I looked at for the CT decal had all the usual spacing and alignment problems common to decals we look at.  In addition, the three trademarks were centered to the width of the decal rather than be offset to the right of the decal.  The CT one we did came out quite nice.

Member Brian has been asking over the past few days if we do this DE decal.  Well, I’ve gone back to that CT one we did and have made the necessary adjustments to convert it to the DE decal.  I’ve posted a picture below.  My new template is such that it should be easy to change the code and part number to meet any of the several other decals used in 69 based on engine and transmission (DF and DG for example).

Let me know what you think.

69pace directed me to this thread. If anybody can get a good, quality picture of an original DE sticker than we can maybe take a look at doing it.

Nice guy Troy!!!  You were the one hyping the Blue print on the YF tag!!!  I also realize Jerry's book says the same.  You are driving me nuts pal  Roll Eyes  Smiley

Already responded to your email with some new pics.

Here are a few tags I've made up for my stock. My templates are such that the codes, numbers and colours can be changed as needed. The YF tag has Blue lettering, while the others shown here are Black.  The two fonts used on the BK tag are totally different from the two fonts used on the others.

You're welcome Sonny and Mike, thanks for the business.

Is there any way to make the print look more like it was "stamped" like the originals?..............RatPack...............
Not at my end Troy. I can only imagine the innumerable parts and pieces you would need, let alone the cost of same.

Don any plans to make a 69 L48 emission decal?
Believe it is the same as the Z/28 one we just finished.  Several engines included on that decal.

Thanks Troy, just responded to your email as well.  If I decide to do the BK decals it looks like I will need to source another font - DUH!

Anybody know if the BK coil was essentially for 396 and maybe COPO cars?

David, the one on Ed's car is dated 10-1-68 part number 3949506.  I just got the new pictures in.  His original is in unbelievable shape, best original I have ever seen.  I have contacted Shaun to see if he wants to take this one on.  Jacking Instructions decals are intricate and take quite a bit of time.

I'm sure there were several versions for 69 Camaros, but at least this is the first one presented to us.  Stay tuned.

Here are four samples of different Silver backgrounds.  Which would seem to be the closest?

This is the last of my initial posts here.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a comparison of four different Blue backgrounds with Blue lettering.  Again, keep in mind they would not look as dull once the clear vinyl is applied.  I know it’s hard to judge from pictures, but which one of the background Blues would appear to be closest?  Maybe some further opinions as to whether the lettering was Blue or Black would help as well.

Troy mentioned that the front 69 Camaro tags were Blue on Blue.  Here’s a sample comparison of the “Blue on Blue” and “Black on Blue”

Here’s a comparison to an original 69 Camaro rear tag.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Spring Tags on: July 16, 2012, 05:04:46 PM
Here is an original front tag from a 69 Camaro.  The comparison here shows samples in “Blue on Blue” and “Black on Blue”.  Colour comparison will come later.
