I've been making my own decals. Some turn out great and some, well they turn out. Always looking for a new source or some fine images I can work with. Keep me in mind and I'll share Wink

 Will do. I have the same big boy so will copy exactly (if able)   

Should we do some without model number so there is s genetic set for resto of other rods? I think yes. Will send back your label and sheets of whatever we can get to work the best.

Thanks!

If you come up with an image file for the harrnel or a nep-tuna, I'd love a copy

Sheridan, did the foil you get from Michel's have an adhesive backing? I picked up a sheet there, 12" x 12" and is a lot thicker than what I've used but with a plain back. I did find some printable gold with the adhesive backing but it doesn't have the brilliance of the old stuff. I know there has to be something out there and it's probably a very common item.

Yes it has the adhesive backing, pm your address and I'll send you some if you want but it might be the same as what you have. It's decent but I get what you're saying about the gold,just doesn't have the same luster.

Here's one I just got with the old green decal that's in good shape. It's a nine foot conventional but they only put 5 guides on it and just red and yellow thread no foil. I think I'll use a little artistic license and add a few more guides and doll it up

Nice! You know this old age is really getting to me. Right after I posted I went to the rodbuilders forum and did a search for the foil. First thing that came up was Janns netcrafters and a link to what they have.  http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/reflector-tape-eyes/reflector-chrome-colors-half-inch.aspx#ItemImage   Anyways, I just ordered a 10' roll of 1/2" tape for  $1.99. lol, the shipping is 3 times as much but of well.
Lets see what the quality is like and I'll let you know.
