    I have the Carbone ones as well. They're really nicely done -- except for the thin foil. I wish they'd use the correct material.

    I believe that some very nice and authentic red border decals are in the works with Manuel. Knowing his previous work they will be stunning.

    Almost there, the digital files are identical to the original decals I have, I've sourced a very correct material and have made some printing and trimming tests, just checking another source for the base metal (not brushed)

    I would like to know who has the best color match for a 73.
    Photo shows my original and one repro that is clearly the wrong color.
    Thanks for referralIMG_3464.jpg

    In looking closely at the top example, it appears that the very thin protective film is still on the sticker and at least from several sets I've received from CANFORD CLASSICS, this film has a green tint. When removed, the true color of the sticker will appear. Just a thought.

    Are you by any chance working on a snorkel decal for Solex-carbureted cars?
