In response to some queries attached are the photos I currently have to develop an early (up to Jan/Feb) '69 black background reproduction decal for automatic L48s & LM1s. I've also attached a photo of the current '68 L48 reproduction decal that, with a modified part number and shape, may end up being used as a basis for the '69 decal.

Hard to imagine if the air cleaner assembly came from AC and the same ones were used on LM1 and LM48s there would be a different decal on them based on the engine - it wouldn't seem to serve any pupose would it?
I always assumed the HP sticker was installed by the plant.

That's correct - the air cleaner lid sticker was installed at the car assembly plant, not at AC.

Thanks!
Something on the broadcast sheet must have told them which sticker. Not obvious to me which box, maybe the engine option code....

Les, I stopped by the 4C Nor built car and took another photo of the decal and have the measurements as well . Take in consideration the deterioration and shrinkage of a 43 year old paper decal. Height 1.612 and length 4.850.

Anyone find a source for a DE sticker?

Box number 180 on the Chassis Broadcast Copy is labled air cleaner. On mine, the 2 letter code is DE which is what is on my air cleaner decal.

No one makes a repro DE as of now.

69pace directed me to this thread. If anybody can get a good, quality picture of an original DE sticker than we can maybe take a look at doing it.

I was approached in early 2011 to see if we could do one of these air cleaner decals.  The code was CT part number 6485904.  I do not recall the name of the enthusiast nor what application it was for.  The overall layout was the same as reflected in the picture of the original DE decal posted in here earlier.  However, that CT had the code and number in a different vertical alignment on the original decal than this DE one.  Also, the font for the code was smaller.  The repro I looked at for the CT decal had all the usual spacing and alignment problems common to decals we look at.  In addition, the three trademarks were centered to the width of the decal rather than be offset to the right of the decal.  The CT one we did came out quite nice.

Member Brian has been asking over the past few days if we do this DE decal.  Well, Iíve gone back to that CT one we did and have made the necessary adjustments to convert it to the DE decal.  Iíve posted a picture below.  My new template is such that it should be easy to change the code and part number to meet any of the several other decals used in 69 based on engine and transmission (DF and DG for example).

Let me know what you think.

Looks very good to me unless someone with an intact and readable original DE decal on a cowl induction air cleaner thinks the colors are different, I'll buy a few. :)

I magnified mine and it looks like the letters are in Black. Almost positive. Also the font is a little thinner then your repro. But I am interested in buying some when you get them nailed down. It is a very rare sticker and not many were built, I have never seen another car in person equiped like this.
