5e3 decal replica
Sorry for the not-so-technical question, but I've been looking for the inside paper decal that goes in the 5e3 chassis. Anyone know of where one can buy a reprint? It's the final detail on an otherwise awesome sounding amp.

Ebay.Or better yet by some vintage looking paper and make your own made by you :)
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Ebay -- I looked for both Fender 5e3 and Fender Deluxe. I didn't find one. Printing my own would be fine, if there was a PDF or something of the original print and some idea of what paper is in the right ballpark.

If you are talking about the tube chart, I have it on my website. Go to the builders forum, look for it there. It would be nice if you stop in and say hi, while you are there....

I made my own "vanity plate" version of the tube chart on a computer. I laid it out in MS Word and printed on a laser printer. The paper was some off-white, textured stock that I had left over from the last time I printed my resume. I attached it to the cab with spray-on adhesive.  
Check it out:  
Of course you could just as easily make it historically accurate, if that's what you prefer. I just decided to have a little fun with it.

Yeah, I'm looking for a replica -- a copy of the original. I don't have an original, have no idea what it looks like. I figured someone out there must have a copy (and found paper that looks right) or someone sells the sheet. I thought ampwares might have it but I've had less than helpful experiences there.  
If anyone has any leads or helpful suggestions, I'm all ears!
