In the past (a long time ago) Michael Pinto AKA Aerobird Motor Sports was selling a decal for the switch bank in the console of the Thunderbird's.  Does anyone know if anyone else is selling these since he closed his operation?

If not, if i had a sign shop make some is anyone else interested in one of these?

There's a place called Danco lettering that does the center console the power lock switches and other various stickers.

[attachment=1890]You're welcome, can't remember where I heard about that site, on here somewhere I think. Maybe in the OLD NATO section.
I don't know why I never followed through and actually bought the stickers I wanted. I went to go do it last night after being reminded by your post about the existence of these.
What stopped me last time is that it was charging $5 to ship the sticker which is fine. But then you add another sticker and it throws another $5 on and so on. I contacted them to ask if anything could be done about the shipping and if I recall correctly they replied that they would refund the rest of the shipping once they had my order. But then obviously I never followed through. Something tells me they're about to get a few orders!
I considered getting the official the authorized sticker, I just don't know if the car needs another Thunderbird logo anywhere on it.
Here's one for you guys. Am I wrong or was there not a different NATO sticker available at one time?

Edit: Just checked the old Nato page and saw the link for decal/lettering is for a Tbirdranch. Not sure how active the site is, but has some wiring diagrams, and even seems to offer a rear spoiler!
I would encourage anyone, in particular some of the "new faces" to take a look at the OLD NATO as there is some great information to be found exclusively on there. A great chunk has been brought into the tech section here, but you'd be missing out if you didn't at least check it out! I like the design and colour scheme. Takes you back to a simpler, more clunky yes, but simpler internet experience.
I like it so much I think I am going to see about having a sticker made based on this logo I just snagged from old NATO.

After you posted about Danco I remembered his site. About 6 years ago I had him make decals with Thunderbird logo for Mustang Bullitt wheels . They look like something Ford would have put on the car.

Thanks so much for this, Rob. It looks like he has really expanded his inventory since last I checked.

To anyone who has the Official NATO decal—where did you place it? Rear window would be my choice. Did anyone else try that, and how’d it work out?
