IMG_20140105_120719.jpg.ad122296f5f8bbda7e271528974fc011.jpgI am about to order a 100' roll of this. I need 40' to do my car. Whilst I don't need 100' I thought I would sell the rest since trim for our lotus sold on eBay not long ago for over £100! Anyone fancy 40'!

Well that was lucky. The problem I have had tracking this down! Just to be clear the original trim as fitted to my car was 5/8" wide. I can only find this from www.trim-gard.com who will not sell to the general public. 5/8" is available via ebay.com but only in 13' lengths via Trim Gard distributors and is relatively cheap ($33 X2 plus $70 shipping to the UK or £103), this option however means a join in the trim on the front and back since the length required is 16'.

This trim is 11/16" so 1.6mm wider than the original so this is not a like for like!e replacement but as close as I can get. The manufacturer only has 160' which I have now brought and no plans for any more, so enough for four cars including mine.

The trim has finally arrived from the states. I will fit to my car tomorrow so I can be certain of the length required then post some photo's.

Whilst it was delivered yesterday I had a letter from parcel force today saying that they won't deliver it until I pay vat due on it and if I don't pay they will send it back!

I reckon the price will work out around £120 for 40'. PM me if you want some.

Some pictures of my original trim against the new... I would say that it is virtually indistinguishable but you decide

Some pictures before and after.

My best application of pinstripe s needs some practice and this will come off don't worry

I got more than I asked for and you require two 4' lengths for the doors and 16' for the front and rear wrap around making 36' in total. I have 1 46' roll and 1 100' roll so actually enough for 4 more cars depending if I cut the bits to size before I send them. I guess that depends on interest.

PM me your address if you want some.
