You know Fisher had 'assembly manuals' for the bodies, and they must have archived them somewhere (for at least a short time).. :)   So WHAT happened to them.   If we had them, it would answer most of the questions we have..    and Yes, I KNOW we've never had them, not even for the Trivie years either...  and 95% of the restoration questions we have are related to HOW Fisher did their part.. ;)

Note that the operation in question was a Chevy process.

Went back through some old emails and found this from John Z in regards to the posi label.  We were also talking about window sticker adhesive.

"The window sticker used a simple water-soluble adhesive, applied to the printed side by drawing it across a roller mounted across a tray with the adhesive in it. The Posi label used a different water-based adhesive, applied with a brush."

I can not find it right now, but I took a photo of a posi sticker from an original deck lid I have. It showed brush marks. If I can find the photo or the label itself, I will post a pic. It is probably stuck in the back of one of the dozens of car related books I have.

Found it!  Not in the best shape. We discussed this internally in July 2015.

Note the brush strokes in the glue.

Note the brush strokes in the glue.

Glue was definitely brushed on rather than rolled consistent with John D's description. Thanks for posting Bryon.

I located a photo I took of the underside of the trunk lid of my 2B Norwood 69 Z during disassembly that shows glue residue on the trunk lid where the Posi decal once was. Although there are examples indicating that the glue was brushed on the lid then the Posi decal was applied, in this case from the edge witness marks it appears the glue was first applied to the decal then the decal affixed to the lid. As with Bryon's Posi decal above, glue was applied in an "X" pattern.

I have a 69 Z28 with the space saver tire with inflator. There is a trunk lid decal for this option.

Can any one help with the location of the three decals (Jacking, Posi and space saver tire.
Thanks much.

1969 Z28 never came with a space saver, only full size spare.
