    Hi kon, and :welcome1: to the Gauge.

    Most roadname decal sets, such as those from Microscale will include the appropriate dimensional data for that particular car. Champ, while no longer producing decals, is still selling them, and they should have sets for dimensional data for covered hoppers, with no roadname included.
    For 70 ton hoppers, the HO scale number is HD-10 for white lettering, HD-11 for black lettering, and for 100 ton cars, HD-28 for black lettering and HD-29 for white.
    They also make complete sets for covered hoppers.

    You might find a viable one in the Rail Graphics data sets ( Rail Graphics )... But I think Microscale will be the way to go.

    Also, check on this site, it links just about every decal manufacturer.
    Great Decals!
