Ok so I peeled the 'tins' off the ford and was going to try to paint around the decals. But figured I could get them off so as to 'reuse them' so at least the paint would be perfect. Then I got to thinking I bet someone knows where I could get these 'remade'...anyone? I'd like all the serial numbers and spec numbers the same ...for obvious reasons...

I have wondered this every time I see those decals. I am sure there are a few places you can get them from, I would not think people doing complete, in depth, 100% perfect, restorations would want to use the old decals.

Well Ryan technically you're correct...no one wants to. But, the fact remains unless the 'repop' is 100% authentic then the original would be much better than a 'fake'. As guys who do lots of restorations know the paint technology as come a long way. Many of us spend a lot of time leveling and using clears that were not done at the factory...so in many ways our restorations are way better than they left the factory.

My ford will not be 100% perfect. I did not remove the rear end or motor(welded in) but the rest of the components were removed blasted and repainted. I look forward to getting this restoration done hopefully by the end of summer....
