    Here they are side by side. Top label is Norwood and bottom is Van Nuys. These are both from March 1970.
    I know we try to make our cars as correct as possible (me included) but honestly I don't know of a single car show that Judges these or deducts points if they are not correct.

    I am surprised that the VIN is lower on the Norwood label. I guess they are not going to type it in the exact place with each one. Anyway it does not matter my SS 396 L-34 is nice but not a show car like Scott Kiehne's.

    Where did you order from. There is one place in New York that charges $24,99, and the other place charges $49.99 I think.

    The reference in post #20, I'll post a pic of it, the "A"s in "Safety" and Manufacturer" don't line up like OE, but Im ok with that.

    I had a blank label hanging around for a few years. I think I bought it for $15-20. Here is how I attempted to fill in the numbers. It is not perfect but I am fine with it. The spacing is off a little and the font is not exact. If I spent more time I probably could have found a closer font. I did this in about 20 minutes.

    I typed out the vin and build date on a word document in the spacing that I thought was close. Printed it out and held it over the label to see how it lined up. I made adjustments until I got it as close as I could. I then taped the label over the printed area, put it back in the printer and printed it again. This time it printed on the label. Again it’s not perfect but no one will ever know the difference unless one of you are looking at it. Lol. Here are a couple of phots.
