    Little something I’ve been working on for some time now. The trick is in the adhesive... you don’t want to take paint off, but you don’t want them to fall off during a car wash either...

    Hopefully ready by the end of the month with some other stuff I’m working on...

    Cool. A little HAMB for the jamb.

    I have a never used one from probably the late 60's that I'm going to put in the jamb of my 32 coupe once it's closer to getting on the road.

    Seeing the original ones on cars in old photos just seems like "icing on the cake".
    The other one is the registration card holder that was wrapped around the steering column with those little springs.

    As I was preparing to click the thread I thought to myself... " This will be a cool thread about vintage jamb stickers, but it would be much cooler if someone made some." And then you went and did the second one! Good job.

    Now that's a great idea, I still have a few from my Dad's Shell station, but would rather use these....

    As a high-schooler I worked after school and Saturdays at our small town Chevrolet dealer. Worked there thru college also. When the building was torn down years ago, a local realtor found an entire package of unused door stickers just like the ones I installed after oil change and chassis lube.....they are on the desk as I am typing this.....they make me smile.

  17. That is great! Right now I keep a clip board in the garage with that info for both hot rods. Since I cannot remember crap these days. Perfect Idea!

    I always love it when someone asks me to recreate small labels for things on their cars.

    Here are a few I have made. I think I have a few hundred of these odd ball decals I have made over the past 15 years.

  24. When the old boy that worked the lube rack at El Monte Ford retired, he gave me these.

    I did these last year for a garage display. Printed on vinyl crack and peal. Waterproof and has removable adhesive.

    I did a shitload of research before doing mine... The company that printed most of these labels in the 1940's through the 60's was US Label. In fact, I believe all three of those above were printed by US Label...

    Anyway, I used their most common size (1 5/8" by 6 7/8") and copied my favorite layout and then went from there.

    Yep. I ended up going with waterproof vinyl as well. I really wanted to use paper as the originals but didn't because I just couldn't get the adhesive right... I REALLY don't want to take the paint off of people's door jambs...

    I did end up going with that expensive matte vinyl stuff though. With it being matte, they feel and look like paper... which is pretty awesome.

    AND BTW, those you did are fantastic!
