Hello snowyelan,

I am a little confused:
Will the transfer letter cover be removed completely or must it stay on as protection ?

My letraset pages has very little adhesive left so I might be in.
But for your information:
The font on my sprint is similar to letraset 10 pt microgramma bold extended ( eurostyle bold extended )
nebiolo SCA 683.
I have over the years done four or five dashboards using the slightly smaller 10 pct helvetica medium 1569. Looks very nice , but some job.
My +2 S has what appear to be letraset ( font unknown ) 30% larger than SCA 683. Not as scratchproof as the screen print. It appeared VERY large and looked awful and very amateurish.

Best regards Claus Garde
bi Easyly
a little handful during tmateerstasF be set

Hi Claus,
The transfer sheet is removed, just the lettering remains. The font is microgramma bold extended, the same as the photo on page 2, but white.

Hi,
Tried to PM you with details as requested above but suspect I don't have enough posts to do that as I'm getting an error message. I'd very much like 2 sets if possible please.

I'll add you to the list elanman68.

Price is $22 per set plus whatever it costs to ship to you from Ontario, Canada.

I've had a couple requests for custom fonts and sizes. I can send the contact info via pm for the supplier if anyone wants to change things from the group buy I'm setting up. There's not much point in me being a middleman for anything custom. I think with the setup fees and such the custom sets were approx $50 plus shipping.

Scott, did you get what you needed regarding the Plus 2 arrows? My dash is a reproduction by Randy Keller, but it might be better than nothing if no one else was able to provide a stock dash picture in good shape. Let me know if you need a pic.

Hi Stu,

No, I didn't get any info about the arrows. There's a few pics floating around but I'd be guessing at the dimensions. If you think what you have matches the original then I can add them in if you can send on some photos with reference dimensions.

I'm up to 11 sets for people who want to order......

Not very good pictures I am afraid, but best I could do with the car stored.

Note my dash is a reproduction made by Randy Keller of Prestige Autowood & Trim in Cali. That said, I understand Randy has been making the Plus 2 dash for years, and when I spoke to him about my project he was very aware of the different Plus 2 versions.

It looks like there are four arrows and two squares in the heater control decal set.

HTH

I got this dash off ebay last week, and it's definately original (the seller said they replaced the dash in 1974 and then kept the old one for over 40 years!). Unfortunately the symbols are rather worn, but I think there's still enough to get the measurements along with Stu's pictures.

Thanks for the pics Stu and Rob. I'm still after the elusive round arrow, no luck with a pic good enough to pull dims from though.

Greg, what info are you after?

I'm up to 14 sets so past the threshold of ordering them...

Hi All,

Sorry for the dropping the ball on this, life with twin 2 year olds is busy.
I have come to the conclusion that it will be better to separate the lettering from the symbols used on the +2. I'm not confident that what I have drawn up would be good enough for the symbols yet. The text will be the same as what I listed earlier.
I'll confirm with the supplier that pricing is the same and order early next week.

Just in case, anyone besides me having the dash decal in red rather than white (on both my 1968 S4se s, one federal, one from the UK... ) ?

I'd be interested in any feedback from the authenticity experts on that topic prior to going further... thank's !

--- edit to add photos (sorry for the poor quality, the other dash fro the UK car off the road since the 80s was away at the shop)
