    Post chassis detail code /decals

    I'm planning on replacing and upgrading rear suspension parts.
    I would like to put on some of the code decals that go on, but I want them in vinyl/material since they will last longer than paper.
    I can make them and have a local printshop print them in vinyl or decal material
    My car is a 72 Skylark/Suncoupe, flint car...I don't have a build sheet
    Can someone share these codes, pics, size and location of install.
    springs,swaybar,shocks,etc.
    I'm not doing a concourse resto. just a nice driver want to add some details to these parts.
    I have seen what they are selling in the internet is this any good ?

    Thanks !

    Inline's decals are paper with universal codes. TPP's decals are vinyl with universal codes. Duane can maybe make you a set that's close even w/o the build sheet, for about the same cost. A Skylark for instance, would have a different front sway bar than a GS. The tag color might be the same, but the number would be different. It's a LOT of work to make your own exactly correct tags. Not many people would know the difference if you had a GS sway bar tag on your car. That's why the ebay sellers just sell universal sets.

    Has anyone bought the universal ones from the TPP,any reviews.
    If all the rest are paper I can make that with photoshop, it's just numbers/letters and color squares and yes maybe time consuming, so is this driver restoration.
    Since my car is a skylark with GS options, like so many other Suncoupes on here.
    would like to get at least correct codes for a buick skylark or GS.
    Well might need to speak to Duane on this............

    My decals are paper with a plastic laminate glued to the outward facing side before they are cut. They also have no glue on the back, so you will need to add that yourself. (There are many here that can give help on what type of glue to use on them.)

    The only exception to this is with the master cylinder/booster tag. This tag does not have any laminate on it, as it did not come that way from the factory and I wanted the "look" to be correct.

    As to the TTP tags you guys can do what you want. For a driver they should be fine, but for a show car you might want to re-think it. Most of the judges know what decals/tags should and should not be there, so be wary. Some of those kits have tags that were never on our cars, so.............



    Also I will give you fair warning,
    I have been very very slow with getting anything car related done lately. There are reasons for this which I will not go into now. If you need anything you can give me a call after 7:30 PM eastern @ 610-544-6776. Also do not leave a message but call back until you get me. I will do what I can to meet your time needs.
