    I'm restoring a G1 Jetfire with reprolabels, and I've run into the issue of not every sticker on the sheet being shown on the toy's sticker map.

    I've used seibertron and TFW's galleries to figure most out, but there's a a large collection of black lines, black rectangles, and black lines with smaller red lines across them that just aren't shown anywhere. then there's two black rectangle stickers with two big red dots on each, and I can't figure out where any of these go.

    Any help? the black rectangles, and black rectangles with red dots on them are the ones I'm really worried about the most.

    The black rectangles with two red dots go on his legs below the landing gear, above the foot. the black lines are probably the ones that go on his armor.

    The black rectangles with red dots are too large to go on his legs under the landing gear.

    the black lines, I dont think they go on the armor. at least any spot I've found. I have the four black lines on the tip of each booster, and the lines with the autobot symbol spot on each side of the booster. I don't see any other spots for these, at least not on any photos I've found. Same goes for the black rectangles, and the black lines with a red lines on them.

    The ones with red dots do go there. Check a pic on the box art or original instruction sheet. the ones with black and red lines are reprolables exclusives, lol. the original ones are black and clear spaces. And those are for the armor boosters, they wrap around horizontally near the top. Or the leg armor, they also have stickers with seperated lines.

    Ah, okay, I see where the box art shows them, but it doesnt change the fact that there's not room for them there, without half being on a hinge that would destroy the sticker if opened.

    Thanks!

    They are a little too large, but that's where they go. Find the spot for the other ones? If you need I can take pics of one of my Jetfires for reference.

    If you could show me where those black and red stripes go, I would be extremely grateful. Thanks so much.

    It does quite a bit! Thanks! I was able to see where a lot of the thin black lines go that I had left over.

    There's still some I don't know where they go, though.

    Reprolabels.com -

    They're on the sheet with the two big autobot sumbols. The thin black lines with red lines in them, and the 4 large black rectangles in the middle, and then next to them, the two large black rectangles with half circles cut out.

    This is the most frustrating time I've ever had with reprolabels.

    I see those thin black stickers with red lines, on the instruction sheet it says they go on the tailfin section, but im not sure where. I just checked all six of my Jetfires, and none of them have them applied.

    But the rectangles go below the boosters. On the original sheet there are only two, reprolables printed more than you need. And the half moon stickers go on the legs, without the armor.
