Lotus Elan

Original Sprint Stripe - How Wide

PostPost by: "nebogipfel2004" » Wed Dec 01, 2004 6:54 pm

Hi All,

I know you will all throw your hands up in despair but I intend to 2-
tone my S4 and spray Sprint style stripes on it. (I don't want it to
say "Sprint" and I don't like the way the stick on ones discolour
and go manky so quickly).

I need to know the correct width of the stripe. Does anyone out
there know? or can measure one for me.

I know it will not be original anyway but I like the proportions of
the colours on "Factory" Sprints and I just think the two-tone
really suits the Elan

Thanks

Manky? Is that a German pronunciation, as in spank your manky?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Ah yes... the width of the Elan Sprint stripe
is 1 7/8 inches. (Just measured my yet-to-be-applied and turned-manky
decal.) Good luck.

John,

You could call your newly painted car an Elan Sprisn't.

Not meant as a flame - just a little humor.

Hi All

Thanks Gary .......I hope yours never go manky ;) and I hope your
stripes stay in good nick too :))

Good Idea Rich! I was actually intending to just lose the "Sprint"
and put "Elan" in the correct lettering in the middle of the doors.
(In fact as original but no "Sprint" and painted on.)


I suppose I could always get the Minky to paint it for me?
