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.

Maybe indirectly.  I sent the original photo to Ed Bertrand to document a car for the CRG database.  Not sure who saw it after that.  Here's another photo of the same decal.  I took this photo to document the shrinkage of the decal.  Can you see the original dimensions of the decal outlined in this photo?



I'm glad the photo was helpful to you.

> GM added a sentence (in parenthesis) at the end of the wheel removal instructions. 

Actually, it's the opposite - they removed it.
Yours is the 9/7/66 version and has the screwdriver in it.
The 1/10/67 version has it removed.

I guess they thought the screwdriver was too confusing to all the people that didn't have those wheelcovers.

As usual. now I'd like to know what my 05D Z28 should have on it?  I think I have a repro and I know I got a posi NOS sticker from Jerry, but now I'll have to look for my jacking sticker.  I'm pretty sure the one on it is wrong.
My 07C has the 3909124 dated 01-10-67.

I'm going to have to make a guess and assume since mine had so many of the late changes stuff on it, the 1-10-67 sticker would be it.  Thanks Jerry.

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.

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?

I would tend to agree.  It would make it less busy with all the stuff one has to "see through" in order to figure out what is really going on with the jack and components.?.?

Yes, and I agree 100%. Some of those similar lines on the NOS conv. one I have are exactly like that and were done that way deliberately I'm sure. If every line would have been bold or the same it would have been way too busy of a sticker.
Can't wait to obtain one for our restoration,
Thanks for the update Don,
