Hello, does anyone have a copy or photo of this or are these produced by anyone?

As I recall in pre-A's there are a number of versions of the fuse cover label, because the wiring layout changed a number of times in the early years. What year car are you looking for a label for?

And - - -
does the cover have an offset thumbscrew, or is it in the center of the cover??

There's a photo of the late '55 offset screw fuse cover in the '54 workshop manual. Also Stoddard reproduces this. I think someone else has recently as well. I have art for the earlier center-screw one from 1954 to early 1955 if you need it. And the '52-'53 version for that matter.

If you print these up, do them on crappy paper with lots of acid in it so it yellows quickly, and be sure to use a rubber cement that yellows as well. Just like Reutter did it. =)

Thanks, it's the type with the offset screw, James, once again the font of all knowledge, I missed it in Stoddards catalogue, I'll add it to my list of bits and pieces to get.
