Hello all,

When I purchased my TR7 last October the previous owner also gave me some

decals that were not originally put on the car.  So I ask you, will decals

that are 35 years old still go on the vehicle properly?  also if not can

you tell me where I might get the decals in red along with the placing of

where they might go.

I would add that some of the decals are on but is missing the red wreath on

the front (of which he gave me) along with a few Spyder decals.

Any input would be appreciated.

thanks

Bruce

I wouldn't use 35 year old ones but that's just me.

I put a set of NOS decals on my Aran Beige TR8 about 10 years ago and they were fine.  I'd say, if you have a NOS set, try them and see if they still stick.  You know the trick of spraying some slightly soapy water on the paint before you apply the decal, then position the decal, then squeegee the the water out?

Bruce -



David beat me to this answer but I'll put my 2 cents worth of a comment

anyway.  If you're replacing your decals for your Spider, the decal link that

David provided is a great place to start.  I can recommend these decals from

the Blake Discher website as I have used them on my own TR7 Spider and they

are as described and advertised, and I believe worth the costs.  He also

provides the instructions for placement of the decals.  Blake Discher is a

former member of this TWOA web forum and a TR7 Spider owner.  Not sure if he

still is.
