Happy to report this project is completed.  Below is a picture of our product against the original.

In addition to all the usual spacing, alignment and font errors on the available repros, there are a couple of little things to point out here.  First, on the sixth line from the top where it has “1/4” take note of the angle of the “/” in the original.  Now look at the repros shown in my first post in this thread.  Second, take a look at the bottom two Red lines where the “degree” symbol is shown.  On the original this symbol is extremely large and not really positioned near the top of that character space as you might think it should.  Now look at those repros again.  Is this being “really” picky?  I guess, but you might as well make it as correct as possible.

Information is on my website below for those still interested in this item.

Thought it prudent to provide an update.  Received the first draft from Shaun tonight and it is really good.  I noticed just a few items which hopefully he can adjust.  With any luck we may have the finished product next week.

By the way, it was Chick who sent me pictures of the original 69 Z Emissions Decal as noted in my first post.  Thanks buddy.

Oaklyss - The picture of the decal you posted is not "completely" left justified for line three, but rather it is in between the two other pictures posted during this thread.  Also, did you notice yours has that "S" at the end of line one?

Marty - I do not recall that thread and I don't believe I ever posted in it.  To be honest, we have been approached on occasion to do the odd one of those, but there just isn't the kind of demand necessary to warrant the R & D hours put into some of this stuff.  I remember getting a request to do one for some mid 70's Camaro and due to lack of interest I mentioned to him the cost would be between $50 and $100 as we probably wouldn't sell another one.  Not surprising he declined.  Somewhere along the line we did one of these and the picture of what we did is below.  Don't remember what year or model it was for.  If I recall the owner was upset as the repros had the three upper insignias centered from left to right and not offset to the right like the original.

Just so people will know, we will be replicating the decal shown in my first post on this thread.  Really don't see us doing several varieties of it to suit the various "left justified" shown in the various pictures. I will post when it gets completed.

When do you anticipate they'll be ready? And, have you gained any ground on the early addition '69 black decals we discussed on a previous thread?

Time frame is uncertain Marty as we only fiddle with this stuff in our spare time when we have some.  Those 68 jack decals we just finished took 4 or 5 months to get right.  However, they are a lot more intricate than an Emission decal.

Can you please elaborate on the "69 Black Decals" you are referring to.  Do you have a link to that thread?

I wonder if there was more than one source, or a NOR LOS difference.

Mike

I can't answer that one Mike.

Nice job Don, now to confirm if these are original or not. Some other examples of low mileage cars I have seen, line up the third line with the bullet numbers. I wonder what John Z has on his car.

Mike

Interesting Mike.  Of all the pictures of original 69's sent to me (DZ-L35-L34-L78) none of them have the full "left justified" for that third line.  Jerry's book page 48 shows a "diagram" of a CF decal that way, as does page 159 for a "diagram" of the CG decal.  Also on page 159 is a pic of an "original" CH that is not left justified for line 3.

Don,

I emailed you the pictures. I did not have much luck resizing them to fit. Maybe you could configure them like the ones you posted, just see the difference between them.

Mike


Here they are side by side Mike (the pic I had and one of the pics you sent).  Not a lot to distinguish one from the other.  However, I do notice line one (Red) on the first one is just a "smidgen" to the left compared to the second one.

Yes it is a BB and I am looking for the correct one. 

Mickey, we have done all the 396 Emission Decals for 69 SS Chevelles.  I was informed after the fact that the decals were the same for the 69 SS-396 Camaros.  I am not in a position to 100% authenticate that.  The 69 396 Emission Decals are on my website below if you care to check them out.  I do have a separate section for 69 Camaros based on the information noted above.  If you, or anybody else, can advise if the decals were or were not the same between Chevelles and Camaros (for the 396 cars) I would be most appreciative.

Thanks Gary.  Those are very close to what I had.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 Emissions Decal - any interest? on: May 18, 2012, 06:24:12 PM
Don, I can measure the size for you if you like

Please do.  I can compare it to the size I was given previously which was approximately 6 1/4" by 1 1/2".

We’ve had some requests for this one over the past year or so and it will be the next project we look at.  Hopefully we have enough to work with from the original copy.

I get pictures of various decals sent to me on a regular basis and unfortunately I cannot remember who sent this original as I would like to give him some credit.  I’m assuming it was from a member here.

If you look at the pictures below you should get a good idea of what we enthusiasts are dealing with when it comes to some of this stuff.  On both repros you could literally go line by line and find errors.  Most of these would be spacing and alignment to the lines above and below.  How about adding an “S” to the word Emission on line one?  Let’s be honest, not everybody cares about correctness of decals, but we cater to those that do care.

We’ve done several of these Emissions Decals in the past and hopefully this one will come out as good as the others.

We have now finished the most common 68 Coupe decal #3909124 dated 1-10-67.  Information is on my website below.

Thanks for all the input in getting these two items off the graound.
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: May 14, 2012, 12:41:35 PM
Is patience a virtue?  I hope so.

We have finished the 3909124 Jacking Instructions decal dated 9-7-66.  My buddy Shaun performed his usual excellent work.  I feel the end result is very good.  Images, information and comparisons are on my website below.

With any luck the one dated 1-10-67 will be completed shortly.

Thanks Paul.
