Hi Steve, am I too late to get a set of Sprint stripes, or are you all sold out by now? I'm in the process of a full renovation of my '71 Gold Leaf DHC Sprint and although it will be a while 'till I need them, yours look so good I'd be happy to buy now. Thanks, Phil

Having sold out of the last lot I have just had a new batch made up. I've been able to reduce the price a little because of a slightly beteer deal and as such am passing on the saving. Can sell directly to you or take a look on fleabay item no. 120522222590 (UK). £44.99 for a full set

There were some people after different styles of stripes/different text - looks as though I can do that now too so get in touch if of interest. Also happy to discuss a bulk deal in OZ, USA or Japan if someone wants take multiple sets to reduce the cost of theirs.

Cheers all

Seem to be quite a few watchers on the ebay listing now - have just added some feedback received - looks like they are being well received - take a look.

Happy to take orders through PM's on here.

Cheers all.

G'day

I recently received a set of Sprint stripes from Steve (elanfan1) and am very pleased with them. As far as I can see the Gold is pretty much as the original and the White matches the Cirrus white we used on the car. Steve did a great job of getting the stripes made and to me in AUS in time for me to have the paint made up for the bumpers.
Matching the gold was another story as the stripes are vinyl and a metallic colour and the colour changes in different lights and angles.
The result we got was pretty good and thanks again to Steve for really good service

Regards

Frank

I think the silver looks great with silver bumpers. Kind of an updated look but retaining the heritage (or something like that). I had my son photoshop someone's Sprint pic with the silver changes and it really looks good.

I had a recent request to make up some stripes with a specific wording on them - in this case 'Elan SE Big Valve' I took the opportunity to to have a few sets made up which just read 'Lotus Elan' along with a few more of the standard 'Elan Sprint' so presently they are back in stock.

Let me know if you need any.

I have attached a photo of the 2 non standard worded stripes if you want to see what they look like - note however they have a protective layer fitted to them and appear off white - they are Gold/white underneath honest.

As winter is approaching and the time generally that people work on their cars I just thought I'd bump this thread to say I have stock of stripes if anyone needs any.

Received my 'LOTUS ELAN' stripes last week. They will look great when I get around respraying my 69 Elan S4 SE next summer. I was thinking having some made locally (in Canada) but getting them shipped from Steve in the UK was no hassle at all, not even customs! I am a happy customer. Cheers!
