Just received the new hood script decals and they look great. Didn't notice an air bubble on one side until I took the photo, but managed to work that out. These are super quality and I'm extremely pleased with how they turned out. This restoration is slowly turning out better than my expectations. A few other decals are now in the works and all the GT ones should be available soon. If you are painting your hood or the original decals look ratty, don't hesitate with these.

The dash tower was one of the first ones I wanted Nate to make, but decided to keep the original on which was still in great shape. Just received the shift console decal and I'll get some pics up for that. It is a clear decal with white lettering, allowing the original charcoal brown paint to blend through. Pretty much mimics the original scheme which had the instructions painted on the cover.

Djordje 33, I like your idea on the shift console decal! I think ill pick one of those up also. I would like to have Nate do a similar clear decal for the dash panel too as my original pad printed white dash lettering is faded to the point where there is almost nothing left but the original paint. only issue is I cant take a pic to send to him. Is your dash lettering in good enough shape to get a decent picture?

Here is the dash tower decal. im pretty happy with it. I didn't notice till I looked at the pic here but the cutout for the steering unit in the dash tower doesn't match the cutout in the decal. I need to stick up for Nate here because his decal is correct. The previous owner of this machine had cut the dash tower after a failed attempt to rebuild the steering unit. I had to weld in a filler panel directly below the cutout then mill a new cutout, I just guessed at how long to make the new cutout so it is about 3/8" shorter than the original. So if u buy one of these decals it will match up with a unmodified dash tower.

Maybe he can make the decal solid with no cutout.  You could cut the opening out with a razor knife after/while applying the decal.  That way it would be a perfect fit.  You would have to cut it as you roll the decal up the dash if installing with the PS valve sticking out.
