    Description

    There are several differences between this NOS decal and the good quality reproduction we offer. First off the red "7" is darker, second the "XR" is more brilliant, third is when you run your finger nail over the tiny raised ridges the reproduction makes a audible zip sound and the NOS does not, fourth is there is no adhesive backing on the NOS decal and there is on the reproduction, fifth is the reproduction is made of a much heavier aluminum stock than the NOS and lastly the NOS fits in the recess of the chrome door better. There are at least three other minor differences but I will let you have the fun of figuring those out.

    Check out our video below showing how to easily remove and reinstall your 67-68 trunk latch, lock, and cover plate, and some info on getting a new key made.

    my trunk lock cover was quite dull. i decided to improve the look with this shiny decal.

    looks really nice, fits the cover lock properly.

    it also makes sense (in my case, at least, and when the cover plate itself is also dull) to think about the cover plate and this nice decal together: Item #: 23985)

    The lock cover on my 68 was badly worn. Since the lock cover is so prominent, I thought it was worth going the NOS route.
