    Fill in for the embossed lettering on the front and rear bumpers

    Does anyone know where I can get the fill-in for the 'Thunderbird SC' and 'SC' lettering that is embossed into the rear and front bumpers?

    I know many years ago I ordered decals from somewhere, but, do not recall from who / where. I also remember seeing a chrome / mirror-like finish type kind, made from some sort of metal I believe, that used 3M tape to stick to the bumpers. Again, many years ago as well.

    Any leads to someone / somewhere for this type of thing is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Pierre

    I think I bought mine here:

    "Graphic Express" and at least one other seller has them on ebay.

    My wife could make some too. I haven't installed the set that I have...so she could scan them in and computer-cut them out of a vinyl sheet.

    Oh yes, I recall the bob white decals site now, after you have linked to it. I recall looking at other decals on their site years ago after seeing it all now.

    Wow, how time flies! Thank you!

    Not sure if this is the same site, but, I do recall seeing the picture itself, that they are using to advertise, years ago as well. I think I am leaning to these type of inserts a bit more. I will have to check out their site later on in depth. Thank you!

    I'm using the same ones and like Keith said the company was previously called something "Stainless Steel inserts". This link says it's a division of SS Inserts LLC so I'm sure it's the same place.

    The other source I've used before for reflective vinyl bumper inserts and SC center cap decals is a member named Todd Jelle... his website is http://www.tj-d-signs.com/
