My car had a decal in 78.I replaced it in the 80's, it was lifting, but never checked for correctness of the new decal.The one on there now is from a pontiac dealer. There is just a flat spot where it would go, I've never seen it molded in, a couple of pic's please!

It was a decal.  That one looks correct.

Where did you get it?  I don't think the repo's look the same.

It's been so long, I don't remember. It says dz12 on the back, I thought it was a re-pop. I gotta go look at the one thats on my car, it's a gm pc. I'll do a pic.

The pictured decal looks correct to me...and yes, there is a rectangular area on the bumper where the decal goes.

I have seen a few old bumpers where age/time has "stenciled" the letters of the decal into the surface of the bumper
(somewhat how the hood bird decal "burns" itself into the hood itself over time).

mine has it molded into the bumper also. reads unleaded fuel only. must have changed this from 78' to 79'. does not have the recess for the decal like yours does burd, and this is the original bumper on my car. is in the same place on bumper that your decal is at, right below fuel door.

For my 78, is this the correct decal?

This is a repop the letters are to fat for original.

Here is the one on my car now, I got it at the pontiac dealer back around 1980-1984.

This is original see how the letters are smaller and spaced apart from the repop.

That one looks like the one I got for my 79 Z29. The repro on my car now looks different, more like the one pictured above.

Here's the best pic i have right now. really hard to see, but if you look real close under the fuel door you can see it. this is molded into the bumper, not a painted over sticker. not a very good pic of it, but the best i have right now.
