RE: [DMCForum] Re: DeLorean Side Stripe Kits



I am not going to name names, but there are others out there who are selling
stripes.
I know there are some blokes in the UK that took some measurements from
James Espey
and made them out of regular sign grade vinyl.
There is another vendor who used my exact same stripes as template to make
thier own
but I have not seen the material they are using nor have I heard from anyone
who has
bought them from this vendor.
I know that I have sold quite a few sets to all happy customers so far.
If you have the last issue of GULLWING, they have a 2 page article with a
sample
peice of my material.
