During the restoration of my 68 L30/M20 I ordered supposedly "correct" tire pressure and emissions decals.  The tire pressure decal didn't even have the correct code for my car, and nobody had it available.  The emissions decal I received had the correct part number on it but it was much different than my original.  I sent both decals to Jim Osborn Reproductions and they were reproduced as perfectly as possible on the correct types of backing.  They didn't even charge me since I gave them the "rights" to offer them as a product.  To this day, I still haven't seen the parts suppliers offering them - go figure.

There's a guy in Canada, Don Lightfoot, that custom makes decals as a hobby for anyone that needs a decal not being reproduced or want a more accurate reproduction than what is on the market.  His e-mail address is: don48@personainternet.com and website is: http://www.angelfire.com/rock/69ss/decals01.html

That's good stuff.  That tire pressure decal for the 68 Z looks real familiar.

I'm resurrecting this thread to see if there was/is progress on the correct air cleaner decal for the 302 with Made in USA printed on it. The last couple I  bought from Ricks in 2000 was just foil and the ends have curled up. Are these still the same as back then?

I just found the correct decal for the 302 with the Made in USA in the lower left corner. Bow Tie Muscle Parts and Accessories on e bay. I do not know how to link the e bay site to the forum or I would have posted it. Anyone knows how to post from e bay please let me know how  to do it. It sells for $6.99.. Thanks, Scoop

I think these Air Cleaner decals have come a long way in the past few years.  I'm sure you have to be careful, 'cause there's probably still some of the older/cheaper plain foil ones out there.  This is where I got mine;
https://www.drclassic.com/catalog/Camaro/Decal/D00033.html
 Looks pretty darn close to original to me.  Has the lighter (thinner) foil on some kind of paper, and the PRINTED IN USA on the lower right corner.  I've seen them @ Rick's (now managed by Ecklers) also.

Update: Just received the correct "BM" code rear leaf spring decals for a '69 Z28 from ECS Automotive Concepts, www.escautomotive.com, 636-536-2221, with the silver background and black lettering. 

Related question:  Where on the leaf spring was this decal originally placed?  I placed the last decal set I had just behind the front eyelet but the ECS website recommends they be located 16" - 18" down from the rear eyelet.  Can anyone confirm the location or locations considered common and correct for the decal?  Eaton Detroit Sping, Inc., one of the original OEMs to GM for leaf and coil springs, may be a resouce I'll also check for info on decal placement.

P.s. ESC's Rust Prevention Magic (RPM) product works great!

Eaton Detroit Spring was never an OEM spring supplier to GM or anyone else, but Mike (Eaton) has most of the original spring drawings, and they should show the location of the ID sticker.

Dave you may want to check out Dannystarr's thread from earlier this year  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=12997.0  There hasn't been an update lately but it's in reference to the same.   I'd like to know also.  :)

Sorry for my miss info on Eaton Detroit Springs. Not sure where I got that info.  At least they have the prints to make springs.  Who made springs for GM?

BTW, I called them and the person I spoke with had no clue about the correct loc of the spring tags, or spring color codes. I asked about what the print specs required but did not get a supportive response.

JohnZ,
Do you have contacts at Eaton who would look up this print info?

Thanks

If Eaton-Detroit doesn't have the info, there's a restoration supplier who makes EXACT reproduction Camaro multi-leaf springs (whose name escapes me for the moment); I'm sure he has the info.
