Sprint decals paint or stick on

PostPost by: alan.barker » Fri Feb 17, 2023 7:52 am

Sorry Boys but after a lot of thoughts and ideas i've "chickened out".
When i peeled off the old Sidewinder it was easy to remove. It had been on the car for 21 years with no fading.
If it ever gets damaged easy to remove and stick new one on.
So after all the banter i will fit stick-on Sidewinder.

During my visit in UK I have bought a "sidewinder stripe" from Dave at DMB well pleased and very good price.
Now the gold for the Bumpers can be matched to "sidewinder colour"

At last my Sprint is in Seb's spray shop.
Chatting to Seb he still wants to paint the gold band and lettering. Have a look at his work at < auto retro and co> he has his paint and bodywork shop in the French Brittany town Plouhinec 56680 Morbihan.
Wait and see

That’s exciting Alan!

Let us know what you think of the result. I was in the same position over 12 years ago when my S4 was at SMS in Spalding. It still looks like it was just painted a few days ago, a quality job is well worth the cost.
Kindest regards
