Hi George. I've had requests to do them over the last year or so, but to date nobody has provided high quality pictures of an original for us to work with.

Have also had several requests for the emissions decal for both 68 Z and 69 Z, but the lack of pictures of originals have negated those as well.

The guys on Team Chevelle have really stepped up with good pictures when they wanted us to look at an item, similar to the feedback in this thread.

The various jacking instructions decals have been the most challenging due to the intricacies involved.

Can someone tell me why GM changed the bumper jack 'hook' from '68 to '69?   From my perspective, it appears the '68 design (with the round pin in hole) is far superior and safer.

I feel immortalized.  The tire pressure decal for the 68 Z is the picture of mine.

Don, there are 2 low mileage very original 69's that I know of locally. I will try and get you high res. pictures & info. The decal for my 70 Chevelle you made was exactly as the original, I wish I would have ordered the glue on decal as apposed to the self adhesive and would recommend that to others. George

That would be great George, thanks.  Yes, my posi decal and jacking instructions can be done like original where the glue needs to be applied.

Don't take this as impatience, but any idea when the 68Z et al jacking instructions will be done?  I don't even need them yet, but I don't want to forget about them.

I haven't forgot. My software buddy Shaun is finding it difficult right now to find time to get at these.  Hang in there.

I wish my 01B 69 Z/28 had a better condition one that you could work with.  Here's mine:

Thanks for the picture David.  I will keep it on file for future reference.  Unfortunately it is not clear enough for us to work with, but can be used for comparison purposes.  Are you able to read the date and part number on it?

Another member on here, Rick (HOT302), sent me a pciture of one that he got back around 1980.  He does not know if it is an original or a reproduction.  Details are indeed different than your picture.  The date on his is 10-1-68 with a part number of 3949506.
