Where can I buy the shift decal for the dash?

I see that The Thing Shop offers a set of decals, but I just need a new one of the shift pattern for the dash.

Yeah, the one from lanerussell is too large compared to the original.

GI, please let me know if you have an extra-I am looking for one with black ink like the original.

Thanks

Hey, guys..

We recently approached these decals again, and they now match the OG factory versions in every way. We have them in stock.

Putting 'it' in reverse might be a little painful...

This is from a 1973 owners manual. You can see the location of the sticker halfway up the page on the left:

Last night at our Cruise Night I had a National Street Rod Association Vehicle Safety Inspection done on my 74 THING. I got a total of 23 points plus 3 extra. Which was perfect plus. Item 18 on the list is Shift Pattern and it has to be on all manual transmission cars except 3 speed. So now I have a NSRA safety sticker in my front windshield.

I printed a run of these decals - black type on clear vinyl. The yellow spot in the right corner is just a reflection. Send me a PM if you want one.

GI Joe was kind enough to mail me the spare decal he had which was much appreciated!

Thanks for your offer as well!
