When doing older cars like Matchbox, would you guys use decal paper or self stick label paper? Newer stuff is a no brainer. Decal paper all the way, but most of the older Matchbox had "stick on" paper labels. I think that would be more authentic. What do you think?
Hey! I'm a "PRO" now.:p Just noticed it changed.

I guess it depends on what you're trying to achieve with your car... Just my opinion, but if you're trying to restore one to original, go with the paper sticker if that's what it had originally and it's available. If you're trying for a custom look on an older model and originalty doesn't matter, the decal is the only way to go. A shot of clearcoat over it and it looks better than a tampo. Modern castings from the tampo era? All decals, all the time.
