69-72 jacking and jack stowage decals

So I'm looking at getting these decals done.

69-72 jack stowage decal
69-72 jack stowage decal for specialty wheel (SSI and SSII)
69 jacking instruction
70 jacking instruction
can probably do more years once I get copies of known good originals


Here is an original jack stowage decal



Here is the reproduction



Here is an original 70 jacking instruction decal

I would love to hear some feedback.

Thanks,
Chris

Sometimes the variations are because GM had more than one supplier of these labels. The labels were originally printed using fonts that were available at the time, and as strange as it might seem, some of those fonts are no longer available, so they have to pick something that is as close as the original as possible. I ran into this when I was attempting to reproduce the trunk label for one of my cars that has two options that were rarely seen together... air conditioning and Kelsey Hayes wire wheels in a Corvair convertible. Through a stroke of luck, I was able to get a copy of the original GM engineering drawing for this label, and reproduce it for my car. That was about 25 years ago, before computers were as common as they are today, and typesetting was still an art. I had two made for my own personal use, since at that time all the automobile manufacturers were giving the reproduction industry a lot of grief about copyrights and licensing.

Not much has changed... They do let parts be reproduced more now but they still freak out over sharing their original printed documents

These are now in my hands and available for those who want the best available decal on the market. Price is $15 each plus shipping. Below are pics of original decals on my original W-31 trunk lid with the widely available reproductions. Then the decals I just had done. Lastly, both reproductions. You can see quite a difference especially with the specialty wheel version. The 69-72 jack stowage for full size wheel covers and dog dishes is currently being worked on.
