I keep seeing all types of stripes for Triumphs on e-Bay. Search under "Triumph TR7 parts".

The eBay kit doesn't have the stripes. They are unavailable from any usual source. You have to get them made up. The original 3m material is still available. Last quote I got was $600.00 I'm looking at getting a batch done to try to bring the price down a bit.

For that price, I would think you could get a body guy to lay down some reflective tape of the correct width, mimicking the original pattern. $600? Yikes!!

Problem is the lower stripe is only 1/16" and the gap is only an 1/8 so really difficult to lay down accurately free hand plus finding the reflective tape that thin has proved impossible so far. The cost was high as there would have been a lot of waste on the roll to just do one set, and there was the initial computer set up as well. I'm setting up my own file to take to the cutter so hopefully this will reduce the cost and I'll be able to get more sets out of the roll.
