And no Dave/ Colin....................don't mean White........ :lol:
White would be rubbish, how would you see the white lettering :roll:

Have to agree though different colours would be good, the green sunstrip is a part of the 70's that can stay there for me.

Some long thin register window stickers could work though, I'm not familiar with the ones that were available previously so can't comment on them, perhaps with the website address on them or just the logo in the corner and the web address on the long thin part? That maybe the way to go with the sunstrip even, just to give it a more 21st century look.

What about a clear strip with the writing on, or something that leaves just the writing at the top of the screen, after all, how effective are the sunstrips really?

Colin.

I'm still not sure whether I would do the sunstrip thing for a road car, would have to see how it looked first.
Make them cheap enough that you can rip it back off again if you think it looks a bit too Ford Crappy :lol:

I had one on a car once........ took it off as I couldn't see where I was going!!!

(wonders, was putting a top tint screen in Libby such a good idea then?)

Everytime I see one of those, I think of lurid green capri's with "Shaz and Gaz" on !!!!

I think "Chatters and Bradley" would look quite good on yours, or perhaps "Polisher and Shed" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Mike, (I think!)

No, no stickers for me thanks. I always have a Register square sticker on the Triumph (one on the Audi too.... must remember to take that off!) and I'll leave it at that.

I would put a Register grill badge on the Triumph, but don't want to provoke the "non-original" chant from certain corners!!

So how many buyers do we need before we place an order Sharon? :)

Would it need to be money up front?
