1961-64 DECALS INSTALLATION

1961-64 DECALS INSTALLATION


Some eighteen years ago Kevin DeVries did a series of technical articles in Late Great Chevys monthly publication on detailing your 1958-64 full size Chevrolet. Since that time many new detailing decals have been reproduced. The merger of Late Great Chevys and Eckler's industries produced all new part numbers. This along with the many years since this information first appeared has lead use to feel that ifs time to once again present this information.

Nothing makes a fully restored Chevy stand out more than to look under the hood or into the trunk and see the attention to detailing that proper decals can give your Chevy The information in this and following tech articles will be most beneficial to the Chevy owner who is restoring his or her Chevy to factory specification. These articles and illustrations will only address the most basic and most asked about detailing decals. This month we will look at detailing 1961-64 Chevys. We can't begin to show all the detailing decals currently carried by Eckler's Late Great Chevy line, to see this full selection be sure to visit us at www.LateGreatChevy.com.

Detailing items come basically in three different forms - first is the crack and peel type of decal where you peel the paper off the back of the decal then apply the decal to the car - the second type of detailing item is the bolt, rivet or wire on item - and the third type is the submerge in warm water, then slide decal off paper type. These are the same type of decals you used when building model cars as a youth.

Please note that these tech articles will not go into great details as to how many inches from a specific location the decal or sticker should go on your Chevy. It will only give the area where the sticker or decal is placed. When GM put these items on a Chevy, they didn't use exact angles or measure so many inches from this corner or end when applying these items. We will leave that detalil up to your personal discretion. As with any type of decal application, proper cleaning and prepping of the area is a must!

The following are the most often asked about detailing items - now is the time to give your Chevy the details that will make it stand out at your next car show!
