Oaklyss - The picture of the decal you posted is not "completely" left justified for line three, but rather it is in between the two other pictures posted during this thread.  Also, did you notice yours has that "S" at the end of line one?

Marty - I do not recall that thread and I don't believe I ever posted in it.  To be honest, we have been approached on occasion to do the odd one of those, but there just isn't the kind of demand necessary to warrant the R & D hours put into some of this stuff.  I remember getting a request to do one for some mid 70's Camaro and due to lack of interest I mentioned to him the cost would be between $50 and $100 as we probably wouldn't sell another one.  Not surprising he declined.  Somewhere along the line we did one of these and the picture of what we did is below.  Don't remember what year or model it was for.  If I recall the owner was upset as the repros had the three upper insignias centered from left to right and not offset to the right like the original.

Just so people will know, we will be replicating the decal shown in my first post on this thread.  Really don't see us doing several varieties of it to suit the various "left justified" shown in the various pictures. I will post when it gets completed.

By the way, it was Chick who sent me pictures of the original 69 Z Emissions Decal as noted in my first post.  Thanks buddy.

Look closer. Oakley's decal is a later version which is why it's different. The 350/370hp timing spec is different. They redid it and added the S and moved the 3rd line.
Hmm, I have two other late LA cars with that version and the 3rd line isn't that far over! The h in With is over the x in mixture.

The comparison pic (post #18) shows that the red printing is slightly offset between the two. Notice the printing in general moves around on the sticker.

Kurt?   The 350/370 engine change would have been to accommodate the '70 models?   not for '69's...
both the Corvette and the Camaro Z28 (with the 350 LT1 engine were introduced after Jan 1 1970, weren't they?

They were on there the whole year for 69. Just the spec changed.

Thought it prudent to provide an update.  Received the first draft from Shaun tonight and it is really good.  I noticed just a few items which hopefully he can adjust.  With any luck we may have the finished product next week.

I might be a little late to the party here, but for what it is worth I have a picture of my 06A Z/28 sticker and I thought it to be the original and it looks like Oaklyss with the S at the end of line one.

I probably should have pointed out this is a Norwood car, and late June based on the VIN.

Not sure I'm tracking with which decal is the correct one, is the one that Oaklyss and I show incorrect?  Or are they correct for later production which means there are two versions?  I would love to buy one but if I buy the one that is shown in the first post then technically do I have an incorrect decal for my car?

Happy to report this project is completed.  Below is a picture of our product against the original.

In addition to all the usual spacing, alignment and font errors on the available repros, there are a couple of little things to point out here.  First, on the sixth line from the top where it has “1/4” take note of the angle of the “/” in the original.  Now look at the repros shown in my first post in this thread.  Second, take a look at the bottom two Red lines where the “degree” symbol is shown.  On the original this symbol is extremely large and not really positioned near the top of that character space as you might think it should.  Now look at those repros again.  Is this being “really” picky?  I guess, but you might as well make it as correct as possible.

Information is on my website below for those still interested in this item.
