Thanks all....the decals came from a company called
http://www.racegraphics.net/
the vinyl isn't adhesive based so doesn't damage the paint work (though a good coat of Swissol is good idea). It takes alot of patience and at least half a day to apply, the orange comes seperate to the black. It is applied wet (soap and water film) so that it can be positioned then allowed to dry. Air bubbles are mainly smoothed out before drying but can be slit and smoothed if needed. The guy who owns racegraphics is a regular over on pistonheads (viper). If you send him details of decals he came make them up. I sent him a pic of the iconic 917 with the Gulf colours and he did the rest. The "24hrs du mans" side decal was lifted straight from the '05 race brouchure. They can be semi permanent without "allegedly" any paint damage. I left ine on for just one week and they came off with a hairdryer without any problems. I think they do a pro fitting service (or at least can recommend someone in your area). All in i think i paid about 70 for all the stickers.

Hope this helps

Hello Nic. Though it might be you. You have nearly as many posts over here as you do on BN. Don't you do any work!
