Default Squarebirds.org decal

I just received my decals and I am looking forward to proudly displaying them. Is there a generally accepted location for them? I do not currently have any stickers, badges, etc. on the car. Thanks. On a different topic I finally have the height straightened out. 1" lower in the back with the front a bit lower than the back. Funny, it still seems like the front is high when I'm behind the wheel. I hope to put together some shots for the Our Rides section soon.

(you and I can be trend-setters)

Get some Hellwig "leaf spring helpers" for the rear leaves if you need to raise the back just a hair.

Sounds good. I'm digging your car on the calendar right now.

Dig this:

My car is currently up on jackstands with the rear axles pulled. I'm ditching the 4.10 gears for some 3.50's.

I'm also fabbing a driveshaft loop for up by the front u-joint. At some point in the future, the 28-spline axles and Detroit Locker will be upgraded to 31-spline.

Some 460 "shorty" headers from fordpowertrain.com are going to be ordered this Spring.

Glad you like the decal! I have mine displayed in the very corner of the drivers side dog leg, but I don't think there is any particular place they have to be put. I have seen them there, in the same spot on the passenger side. It is up to you.

My decal is on the opposite side as Ray's, (passengers side windshield dog leg). My reasoning...viewers on the curb can see it on a slow roll-by. Anywhere you put it looks GOOD.

Cool

Jay your reasoning on the decal is very sound on the passenger side. As Ray mentioned there are several spots our decal can be placed ( being a static decal ) with lots being placed on the " dog leg " portion on the windshield. The main purpose of course is that a lot of people get to see the decal at S&S and I have had many people ask me what it stands for? Great intro / advertising to our site.

I always put my stickers on the passenger side dog leg because the state inspection sticker went on the drivers side and they didn't like anything else on that side.
