Elan Sprint Stripes (or Sidewinders across the pond)

Have had some extra made up as my own car is due some shortly. These are high quality vinyl ones rather than screen printed originals - in my opinion (for what it's worth) they are superior to the originals.


I am now down to my last couple of sets of stripes so if you need a set please be quick £50 for a full set - if you want take a look at this is a completed item on fleabay selling a set - 120417765160 this finished earlier today 15/5/09.

Steve,

You wouldn't have a plain set that doesn't include the "ELAN SPRINT" part. I'm planning on painting my S4 in Sprint colors so I'm looking for the gold stripes without any wording.

Hi Steve,
Sorry I am so late in getting back to you. I had a heart bypass done as you may know. Now well on the mend. Been at a bit of a loose end so the wee car got the attention to those not too good stripes the repairers (Option1) fitted. They were worn thro' already. Frank to be fair offered full replacement including fitting if I took the car down. Major grip was they looked to have been spashed with something which left inky like spots all over (but not on the paint thank goodness).

The new vynil set you sent me are just great. I plucked up courage to have a go at them and found the worst part was removing the existing ones. Got there though. The new ones were a doddle to fit and look fantastic. The colour is also much better IMHO.

A big thank you.. :D :D

Great to hear they look well on the car and were an easy fit. My car is still being painted so I have a while to go yet.

As yours is Lagoon the same as mine will be - how about posting a nice piccie with the new stripes ... a picture and a thousand words and all that.

Cheers

Steve

OK...But I'v now got the bit between the teeth again and I have ordered my new tyres and have the wheels off the car for refurb'. I have checked them for true and taken a few dinks out of the rims etc. They will be blasted and powdercoated ASAP.... :D :D

As soon as its 'back on it's feet' I will take the final pics and post them.

Cheers all. I am off on my driving tour again. Catch the ferry 21st August with some bikes in tow. Doc' won't entertain me using my Pan -European (Honda ST 1100). It is a heavy bike right enough. I can see his point.

Last pics soon...

Alex

Have fun and you, me and Mark need to catch up once you're back.

I too am off, flying down to Lisbon then tie up with some friends who have a 46' yacht and we sail down off the Moroccan coast to the Canaries. I fly back a week later - gotta catch the wind and rays, man! 8)

OK wrists firmly slapped, but looking at your post, didn't you mean "but butch better"?
I wonder, are we capable of anything that would make his Lotusness turn in his grave, a tough call there I think :roll: :roll: :roll:
Glad you're feeling better; is it lifting your Kilt now :lol: :lol: :lol:
Have a nice Hol.
