Hi Mike
Can they photi etch aluminium? I would lile to get a new placard done for the transfer case instructions that mounts above the speedo and gauges. This might be something that others might be interested in as they fade like mine has.
Cheers
Rod

Yeah good idea, they do go purple after a while

I'll take one
Lots...............

G'day Stephen,

I'm more than happy to get some Ambo labels made up, but I'm not sure what the extra ones look like!

If you could possibly post some clear photos of the Ambo specific switch placards, I'll get some made up.

If anyone else can help, that would be great, unfortunately I don't have access to one in my neck of the woods.


Rod and Scott, as far as replicating the aluminium photo etched stuff, I'll ask them. I'm not sure if it would be the same job, but it would definitely be worth doing anyway.

Cheers,

Mike.

I would like a set, although I think the ambulance has a few extra ones, have to double check.

G'Day Richard,

It would be possible to make the Blower and Heater labels if required, and they could be included in the current job if necessary.

Just let me know some dimensions, they look like they are 50mm wide, and 13 mm tall -  the same size as the fuel gauge one.

There is no need to order a regular sheet, we could do any number of any label.

Cheers,

Mike.

Cheers,

Mike.

Thanks for that Richard,

We have made up the artwork for these if you need them, just need you to check the dimensions so that we get them right!

A Bit of a update / change

Thanks to everyone who has shown an interest in this project.

The printers sent me some samples yesterday, and it looks like I was a bit wrong about the way they make the labels.

As we know, the originals from the 60's were printed onto thin foil with an adhesive backing.

Apparently, this company photo etches onto aluminium plate, and the minimum thickness is 0.5mm. Adding the adhesive backing would make them up to about just under 1mm thickness.

Obviously this is not quite the same as the original, but they will definitely look exactly the same, just a bit thicker.

They will certainly be a lot more hard wearing, and the samples look quite good.


I would like to show everyone what they will look like, but as this is a fairly small job for the printers, they are unable to produce an exact sample of the job prior to the go ahead.



The other thing is that they will be able to make up any other plates we need.

At the moment we are making up artwork for the big instruction plate that goes over the instruments, the 'Plate recording vehicle repair', (that they had when accepted - I've never seen an unfaded one of these) and the Black Out label.

So is the change from a foil sticker to an alumimium label an issue?

I did talk to a couple of businesses that make 'foil stickers' but was told "That will cost you 1000's of dollars". I suspect that they were not interested!

Let me know if this is an issue, if you have changed your mind, no worries.

I am still going ahead at this stage with the labels for my vehicles.

Cheers,

Mike.

Mike, that's awesome news for me.
The labels on the switch panel in my Inter are badly damaged and I could use a couple of Mod plates as well. It sounds like the labels these guys make would be very similar to the originally fitted ones.
If others would find it useful, I could take some detailed pics of the switch labels, mod plates and other warning & instruction plates from my MK3 and post them up with measurements.

Greg.

Greg,

All we need is a good photo and some accurate measurements, and we can go from there.

I didn't think of the Truck plates, but it should not be a problem.

I've seen some of the switch labels on the inters and I know what you mean.


As far as the printers go, they will do all of the labels as one job, including cutting them out.

The bigger labels will cost a bit more, but then again, where else can we get them?


This little project is getting bigger!

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike,

The blackout switch panel in my series 3 has been drilled through twice - right through switch labels!
Does anybody know if the series 3 markings are the same as the series 2a? Making the aluminium panel will be simple, but i was wondering what to do about the labels.
Sorry i dont have a pic of the series 3 panel at the moment. I would be very keen if they could be replicated.
Regards,

Tim
