Default Striping/decals

In need of a good source for new strips. Removed the old ones and want to change it up.

Hope the vendor can match the size of the plane

Any suggestions??

Thanks. Jerry

I used this company for the trim on my Tailwind. Great product and good company to work with.

Default Stripes

I used a local guy that does a lot of striping and commercial work on trucks. He took a few pics of my plane, merged the photos into his design program and sent me several layouts based on my ideas. The stripes were cut out and placed right down to the rivet on my plane using photos on my phone. Easy project.

If your striping is relatively simple you can layout the pattern using "3M Finishline Knifeless tape". Slap your vinyl over the tape, pull the wire and VIOLA, you have a very nice fine line stripe.
