Are you able to read the date and part number on it?

The car is being restored but the next time I am at the shop, I will check it.

OK David, thanks.

Marty - we haven't done any Jacking Instructions decals for 69 Camaros as yet.  I've received pictures of a couple different versions from members on here (not necessarily ones we can really work with), don't know if one is for a space saver or not.  If you can get a good picture of an original send it and I will keep it on file.

Given the time it takes to do the Jacking Instructions correct (very intricate) who knows when we can get at them.  Especially given my buddy Shaun's time restraints these days due to his recent life changing situation.

Also, if we get these two 68 Jacking Instructions done that are on the table now, the next two waiting are the Emissions Decals for 68 Z and 69 Z.

We're getting close guys.  Apparently Shaun has a couple of issues to sort out regarding the "bubbles and discolouration" on some of the pictures of originals we are working with.  He thinks he can work though them (fingers are crossed).

I don't think I ever found out yet what size these are.  If you guys with originals could measure them for me I would appreciate it.  Also, were the 9-7-66 and 1-10-67 versions both the same size?  Maybe they are the same as the other 68 Camaro one we have done which was about 5" x 4 1/8".  Thanks.

Don,

My original 9-7-66 decal is exactly 123mm x 106mm or approximately 4 13/16" x 4 1/8".  The corners are rounded.

Is patience a virtue?  I hope so.

We have finished the 3909124 Jacking Instructions decal dated 9-7-66.  My buddy Shaun performed his usual excellent work.  I feel the end result is very good.  Images, information and comparisons are on my website below.

With any luck the one dated 1-10-67 will be completed shortly.

Don, here is the picture from a 35K 69Z NOR built 02A I promised in March. It is a very nice original car. Hope that helps. George

Thanks for the email and pics George.  We had another picture of a fantastic original sent to us last month and this decal is the one we are currently looking at.
