We're getting close guys.  Apparently Shaun has a couple of issues to sort out regarding the "bubbles and discolouration" on some of the pictures of originals we are working with.  He thinks he can work though them (fingers are crossed).

I don't think I ever found out yet what size these are.  If you guys with originals could measure them for me I would appreciate it.  Also, were the 9-7-66 and 1-10-67 versions both the same size?  Maybe they are the same as the other 68 Camaro one we have done which was about 5" x 4 1/8".  Thanks.

OK David, thanks.

Marty - we haven't done any Jacking Instructions decals for 69 Camaros as yet.  I've received pictures of a couple different versions from members on here (not necessarily ones we can really work with), don't know if one is for a space saver or not.  If you can get a good picture of an original send it and I will keep it on file.

Given the time it takes to do the Jacking Instructions correct (very intricate) who knows when we can get at them.  Especially given my buddy Shaun's time restraints these days due to his recent life changing situation.

Also, if we get these two 68 Jacking Instructions done that are on the table now, the next two waiting are the Emissions Decals for 68 Z and 69 Z.

Thanks for the picture David.  I will keep it on file for future reference.  Unfortunately it is not clear enough for us to work with, but can be used for comparison purposes.  Are you able to read the date and part number on it?

Another member on here, Rick (HOT302), sent me a pciture of one that he got back around 1980.  He does not know if it is an original or a reproduction.  Details are indeed different than your picture.  The date on his is 10-1-68 with a part number of 3949506.

Don't take this as impatience, but any idea when the 68Z et al jacking instructions will be done?  I don't even need them yet, but I don't want to forget about them.
I haven't forgot. My software buddy Shaun is finding it difficult right now to find time to get at these.  Hang in there.

Don, there are 2 low mileage very original 69's that I know of locally. I will try and get you high res. pictures & info. The decal for my 70 Chevelle you made was exactly as the original, I wish I would have ordered the glue on decal as apposed to the self adhesive and would recommend that to others. George
That would be great George, thanks.  Yes, my posi decal and jacking instructions can be done like original where the glue needs to be applied.
81  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: March 08, 2012, 04:15:09 PM
Yes Steve, go to the "Blue Beast" link in my signature and follow "detail decals".
82  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: March 07, 2012, 10:26:31 PM
Don do have the correct sticker for a 1969 coupe built in November 1968? George.

Hi George. I've had requests to do them over the last year or so, but to date nobody has provided high quality pictures of an original for us to work with.

Have also had several requests for the emissions decal for both 68 Z and 69 Z, but the lack of pictures of originals have negated those as well.

The guys on Team Chevelle have really stepped up with good pictures when they wanted us to look at an item, similar to the feedback in this thread.

The various jacking instructions decals have been the most challenging due to the intricacies involved.

Thought it appropriate to come back in here to provide an update.

Talked to my long distance software buddy tonight.  He has been struggling with the trunk diagrams.  He feels a lot of the details on the decal pictures I sent have faded which has presented some problems.  I have taken anmother long look at them and have come to the following conclusions:

- The lines for the trunk opening lip, trunk floor lines, trunk latch and everything to do with the spare tire are in fact less "pronounced" than things like the jack stand, wing nut, screwdriver (for the one dated 66), lug wrench and jack stand. May seem odd, but that is the way it appears.
- Such is not the case with the jack location diagram which seems to have everything darker and more pronounced.

Do you guys understand what I'm trying to say?
84  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: December 03, 2011, 08:52:20 PM
Well, Don, can you put the 1-10-67 9124 on a "to do" list too please?

Already have.  Sent it to my software guru this morning for him to review.  My only concern is the original pictures I have are not the "high resolution" variety and may be difficult for us to work with.  We'll see.
85  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: December 02, 2011, 10:04:56 PM
Interesting Paul, that survivor picture from the Blue car is the same one I've had on file since April of this year (same tears and everything)  Roll Eyes  It helped us do the replication on that particular item.  Did a guy named Keith get that from you?

I will add the 9-7-66 one to our "to do" list Paul.  Because of the intricacies of the Jacking Instructions decals they do take time, especially when we only fiddle with this stuff part time.  Some of them take up to 4-6 weeks and even longer in the summer when my software buddy is out racing.  He's also been experiencing some family issues right now so things are a bit backlogged.  Demands for Emissions Decals have also been prominent this year.  We do not rush this stuff as we try to be as accurate as possible.  You can check with me every so often if you like.
86  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: December 02, 2011, 05:29:46 PM
Yup, that's the one (3947628) I was talking about on the 04D RS survivor.  This RS coupe has a 327cid/210hp V8, so the decal is not exclusive to a SS.

Paul   

Good to know Pual.  I've made a note and sdjusted the wording on my website.  Thank you.
87  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: December 02, 2011, 03:51:56 PM
I thought we were talking screwdrivers Paul, not wrenches  Grin

I assume the picture below is the same as the one on your car.  If I recall, somebody sent me this one quite a while ago and said it was on Jerry's car.  Wonder if these ones are actually for a 67 and were held over until used up  Huh  Huh

That other one you mentioned is the only 68 Camaro one we have done so far.  A picture is on my website.  I was advised by the person providing the original picture that it was for an SS coupe.


88  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Z/28 spare and jack equipment on: December 02, 2011, 01:40:12 PM
Interesting Paul. Can you confirm if there are any differences between your decal and the one below, other than the date?

When I first got into these things for Chevelles there were significant differences on survivor cars as to what one they got (EG - 69 SS Chevelle cars didn't always get the SS decal, some got the regular decal.  70 SS Chevelle decals had an early and late version, but there seemed to be no logical cutoff date between the two, I attribute this to being some holdovers at certain plants).  There were obviously a lot more plants building Chevelles, but could be a similar circumstance for Camaros between Norwood and Los Angeles  Huh  Huh  Huh

Chick - Good information, thanks.    BTW, did you get your "investigations" done as per your last email  Smiley

Kurt - The relativity of the screwdriver makes sense as a trim ring would not need to be removed to change the wheel.  Thanks for your input.

NOTE - I updated my website link below as it previously showed an old URL.

As some of you may know I have a part time hobby of replicating various original decals either due to the repros not being correct (almost all of them) or certain ones are just not available from the aftermarket.

I have had several requests over the past year to do the Jacking Instructions for a 68 Z/28.  Up until this time nobody has been able to provide me with a picture of an original one which we need to work with.  An enthusiast has now provided me with pictures of two originals supposedly from two different Z/28's.  This decal is dated 1-10-67 and has a part number of 3909124.  I have two questions which hopefully you can help with:

1) - Is the above date and number correct for a 68 Z/28?
2) - I have looked at two repros of this decal which have the usual alignment and spacing errors.  However, the repros show a "screwdriver" as part of the jacking equipment.  Did a 68 Z/28 originally come with a screwdriver which I assume would have been used for the trim rings?

Thanks in advance for any help.
