Quote from: fishnjim on November 23, 2022, 12:32:37 AMI was trying to recall the other decal supplier and finally came to me, just as I settled into bed.Jim Osborn Reproductions. I've bought from him, too.But right now I don't see his website but his products are listed by other vendors. They probably have what you're looking for.ps: This is a post for a '54 and not a '58, so any discussion there is tangential and moot. Most likely I erred and my mind's eye got crossed. I see my car every day practically and am working on it currently, but one gets used to things and going from memory, up here on the computer, and sometimes that doesn't work for an old fart. But it is relevant in some items the manufacture sequence. Also, may encounter differences when different plants were used for the same model.
Quote from: Roger Zimmermann on November 23, 2022, 02:37:06 AMThe oil filter decal with the PF-122 is for the 1957-58 Brougham and not for the regular models. I still have many of those decals I never could use because the canister is black...The script should be white, I never found it.
Quote from: Nickl on November 23, 2022, 01:56:50 PMSo if the letters are white it is the right decal for the canister ?
Quote from: Roger Zimmermann on November 24, 2022, 02:34:30 AMYes, but what is the car you have? A 57/58 Brougham? A picture from the canister you are referring would maybe help.
Quote from: Roger Zimmermann on November 24, 2022, 09:51:16 AMYour car has a P-115 filter element. That decal is wrong for your car.

Quote from: Nickl on November 24, 2022, 11:41:24 AMWe are talking about the oil filter canister not the power steering canister
Quote from: David King (kz78hy) on November 24, 2022, 12:15:29 PMI updated the text, but in the image you can see the oil filter canister and the label style used.
Quote from: Lexi on November 24, 2022, 04:30:30 PMAs a recap: My understanding is that they were white. Don't ever recall seeing blue-neither had Jon. If his posted reference shots are correct, your 1954 Series 62 would have the same filter canister as I noted previously, with the peripheral white lettering around the top of the lid's edge. Don't ever recall seeing one with raised lettering, (except for the P/S pump lid which is a different item). I have also seen 2 styles of oil canister lids from that era but I believe they all used the same lettering. We can't always rely on the accuracy of re-pops unfortunately. As good as it is, this oil canister lid issue is another item to be expanded on in the Authenticity Manual should it ever be revised. Clay/Lexi
