Greeting fellow SHO nuts!

I am looking for some original or reproduction decals for my 1993 SHO 3.2L.
These are the decals that are on the plastic cover above the radiator.

Under the hood look terrible as the original decals are peeling and mostly missing.

Michael

Nothing available commercially.

Your best bet is a commercial sign / advertising sign shop that can duplicate the one you bring them.

Most of their printing is on vinyl film, so you can transfer it onto your plastic rad cover.

There is a forum member that just went thru the effort of having reproduction stickers made for his restoration 91 SHO. His user name is "91 Vegas SHO" you might drop him a line and see if he'll share his designs.

I think that even a small shop has a lot of capabilities with the modern equipment and script choices.

I am sure the written part can be created new and be an exact match, the only difficult part would be the pictorial of the belt location, but i think they can take yours and digitize it, and clean it up around the parts that are wrinkled or missing.

Take yours and get some estimates at a few shops.

Thanks for the input. I will contact a local dealership to see if the decals are still available.
Does anyone have photos that they can share with me for the decals. I do not have enough to bring to a shop for reproduction.

Anyway the old girl still looks pretty good considering original paint. The drivers seat is starting to show some wear and probably will need to be recovered soon.

Looks better my 92 swamp ass green goblin (don’t ask about the name). Though I had a deer redesign the front end so there’s that.

The dealership will be "nada", the part numbers were there but unavailable when I looked a while ago.

I have very good looking ones for 1993 ATX, but they don't flatbed scan well while still stuck to the plastic frame, as they can't touch the glass. The middle label still has clear plastic where dirt can get under the bubbles.

O0LGU5f

Four hours so far in Photoshop, tracking down some really obscure 1992 fonts with custom kerning and justification, and recreating almost all of this label in 1200dpi/vector (just the diagram remaining, and some more font tweaks to do...)

BDqSr2E
(demo, not full resolution)

The other labels are printed with solid orange and red spot color ink, they won't look right using a mix of 4-color-process.

Awesome work NoSlo! If the fit and print come out as nice as this rendering you could definitely have some customers. It would just require the different years specific info. IE R12 vs R134,
the oil rating, and obviously the ATX, MTX belt routing I am sure that I missed something.
But still super awesome that it can be done!!!!

Here's a redone 1995 emissions label (the one that bubbles), at full print resolution, 1200dpi
Don't know if I'll put the like-new 1995 placard I got in my 93; with a D4U1 and R134a, it's technically correct.

I was considering ways of printing for good permanence if one actually wanted a replacement, such as backside-printing on transparency with my micro-dry printer and then painting with white.

If you can take a good photo of other years, I can probably add the slight modifications such as different certification numbers and barcode that 94 might have had.

I built some from scratch for my 90 a while back... they turned out perfect!

If you print these, I definitely want one!

I know this is a very old thread, and most are probably on Facebook or some chat group.

So my 95 MTX California emission non EGR label is missing. Dont know where I put it, and need to smog it. So I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I would like to get all the slabels. Belt diagram, AC capacity emission tag. But if only one...its the emissions label.

Contact @Jbeck and see if he is still offering them. He posted 2 spots above you.
