 OK...so when do we vote? I like the last example 'J' just as it stands.
Thanks for taking lead on this, Marty.

   I know this is an old thread but I'm in the market for a replacement BB fan shroud for the convertible restoration (the kids are asking for Xmas ideas). As I understand it nobody is making an exact reproduction. Can anyone recommend a decent reproduction even if it is second rate to what an original looks like? I have a NOS one I bought back in the 80's and it is the factory modified one with a hole. Comparing it to the original one of my 4B LOS survivor it looks different. I'd like to get something very close.

Thanks,
Mike

Marty,

 The way it is on the right side example, I would run with that.
I think you nailed the final markup. I certainly would buy that.

Screen or embroidered? I'd vote for embroidered but I'll take what the final decision is.

 My 67 LOS survivor has the white jug. Of all the 67's I have owned I never had seen a black jug, only white.

Dang, I missed a lot since Sandy came to town! I like the smaller offset front logo with camaros.org on the front. I would like to see how a larger logo above the words "the 1st gen authority" would look on the back.

Hmmmm......"the 1st gen authority"..........this is growing on me and after seeing Marty's example, I like this the best.

And a bench seat and column shift as well. NICE!

When in comparison to what we spend for our cars I would gladly pay the small extra cost and go with embroidered apparel. It's only the cost of a 6-pack above a screen print and looks richer.

I try to use the lowest pressure so it has steady media feed and performance. No need to use excessive pressure which will only pulverize the media faster.
With glass beading it is about 40 working pounds for my setup (Harbor Freight blaster and a shop vac for exhaust).

 Hi Jerry,

  Are you sure? Those can't be 1/4" fonts. The pad itself is about 1/4" in height. I took a caliper out and measured my 8515 and early 9204 numbers at approximately .125" (~ 1/8") in height. Looking at later model booster I measured those smaller fonts at approximately .0635 (~ 1/16") height.

My other concern dealt with the issue of how CRG gets its profits....
I would take this off line and discuss with the CRG folks privately. There are legal implications here when it comes to the word 'profits' unless CRG is a registered nonprofit organization with a 501 filing that can accept income.

This much seems certain so far based on the few samples posted here:

Boosters made to late 68 used larger 1/8" fonts and no Delco (based on my only sample I have since the 80's from a resto shop)
9204 boosters made in 69 used a smaller 1/16" font but the Delco appearance seems mixed:

1968
Julian date 332 - Delco stamp - no

1969
Tag date Julian date  Delco Stamp?
02D        055           yes
05A        120           no
06A        140           yes
07A        148           yes
  If x77-69z28's  booster is indeed original to his car then that must mean the Delco stamping was not consistent. But this summary is based on a very small sample size so I would not draw any final conclusions. The one on eBay has the small fonts so that seems consistent, but the absence of the Delco can be correct if Delco was not stamped on every unit. However, the ad is wrong in that it states a 1/8" font when in fact that looks like 1/16" height. Also the front cover does not look like a reproduction. Those stand out and can be identified very easily due to them having very crisp pattern edges.
 Give Steve at brakeboosters.com a call if you need a correct booster.

   So based on the samples posted here it's looking like boosters made in 67 to sometime late 68 used 1/8" fonts and those stamped in 69 used 1/16" fonts.
I wonder when the Delco stamping appeared. The 1/8" font 9404 booster I have (made in late 68)  has no Delco stampings. It would be interesting to see if 69 dated boosters using the 1/16" fonts is when the Delco stamp appeared.

I vote for #14 in color, design and layout but...

I would eliminate the ' #1 source.....' line as it sounds like it's selling something. How about what the home page states...
"Research and Restoration Data for First-Generation Camaros"

Marty,
My vote is keep the CRG logo + wording.  Loose the RS, SS, etc. but add (in small lettering) the web address.

I kind of like this idea more. The shirt on customlink looks very nice so you're onto something now. IMO, a picture will eventually fade with washings. Having the wording embroidered would look much better vs screening.

  Standing on the outside looking into the quarter area bottom....look a few inches from the front wheel tub and you should see an elongated hole about 1/2" wide punched into the rocker that is towards the inside of the car. That's what my 67 has.
