This is off a 13000 mile car. I can't tell if the letters are black or dark blue!

Recently took these pics of the coil spring tag and location on a 68Z survivor.

Thanks for posting Chick and thanks for sending them to me as well.  Here is the finished product utilizing the two distinctive fonts required.

Haven't seen pictures of original "rears" yet to know what fonts and colors they used.

I didn't see any photos of an 'EY' spring tag, and since I dismantled the front suspension of my original unrestored '69 Z28 yesterday, I have a few photos..     I was surprised to find both springs still had the tags attached, although one of them was only a partial (with the dangling end gone).  Both were labeled EY (my car is '69 Z28/RS, with cowl hood so the weight is a little larger on the front I suppose than the standard spring.   I'll include a photo here of the best of the two tags, which was loose enough to easily remove.   

At that point, I planned to just clean and reuse my original springs, but ALAS..  when I further disassembled, I found a single broken off coil in the bottom of the passenger side lower A-arm.  so I have a question:   'Where do I find new springs that match the spring rate and height???   I am only cleaning and repairing, because I desire to show my car in the original unrestored class one day; should I replace both springs and attach my original tags? 

Re the color:  It certainly appears to be dark blue lettering on light/med blue tape to me. 
 Note:   If you look closely at the ends of the tag strip, it is 'serrated', like would happen tearing off the end of a piece of tape, so that appears to be how they did it.  The whole tag I removed was 3.5" long when flattened out.    Are the reproduction tags serrated on the ends or flat cut?
