@bird_dog0347 likes to give me a hard time on 281 decals but what about a white faded decal in the wrong color.
This is a project that @SorsCode has been working on receating using my orginials as a template. Think he nailed it. Thanks again man.

When I started buying all the decals for my S281 restore I got my wreath decals in and they were completely wrong. Thanks to @95steedamustang for all the pictures and measurements I was able to recreate.

The top one is what Saleen sells today and the bottom was my first prototype of recreating. As you can see from @95steedamustang I think I have it fairly perfected. You got to do what you got to do to restore a car. So when he asked me to make some in gold, I jumped right on the opportunity.

Even tho the 98 Saleen is officially classified as done that doesn’t mean I can’t tweak a few things.
Here comes a small tweak to the rear seat delete I did. I’m making another cover that will go over the existing one so when I go to the grocery store and want to hide the system.
I’m going to embroider it with a logo in the center to match the seats and use the same leather material as the rest of the delete. I mocked it up with some old fabric I had but it will be leather on the final product.
Details!
