I think mine are more like 10mm above bottom edge of doors. I sense another attempt is needed!

Thanks for the correct instructions 

10mm may be a little low, but I think they look better on the low side vs the 50mm guidance.  If you look at the 3.0RS pic, I reckon they are more like 30mm above the bottom of the doors.  IMHO, its more about what you think looks good than being right.  I have always stuck my decals lower than the guidance as it has the visual effect of lowering and elongating the car a little.  IMHO, of course.

When researching this I have noticed that many of the 3.0 RS's and IROC's have them mounted lower, whilst 2.7 RS's seem to always be at 50mm. If you look at the Mexbrough blue RHD 3.0 RS recently restored by Maxted-Page to concours condition I am sure, the stripes are at 50mm but prior to the resto were mounted lower. The white car is unrestored, but the stripes are lower and longer than those used on a 2.7 RS. For our cars, as Richard said, personal preference is more important than historical accuracy.

My scripts have actually cost £150 plus shipping. I'm sure this sounds expensive, but...

1) The accuracy of the font is perfect. I could also have chosen the exact gold with black outline used originally be Porsche (as Highgate have scanned original cars to reproduce the 3.0RS scripts for a recent high end restoration). Unfortunately I painted the wheels to match the previous gold I had chosen.

2) The gold I wanted was no longer available. Highgate have sent me 3 scripts using all remaining vinyl, but it is 6 years old and the disposal age is usually 3 years. If I have problems, as I did with the 8 year old ones, then will send me 2 further scripts in a different shade, for no extra charge. Plus I got a bottle of FastTack fitting spray.

I agree the price seems high but I do think the service is worth it.

So I went for 40mm up from door bottoms. Its a tricky job but managed it without ruining any decals and only a couple of little air bubbles near the rear arch which I can live with. These decals were suppled by Type 911 (£50) and I am happy with their quality.

That looks absolutely lovely with the wheels and bright trim. Good job.

Got my decals on with help from the missus, followed by a long but necessary drive to Morrisons with my daughter.

Yes, that is a very nice combination. Gold works so well with black.

Enjoy those long drives!

Went out on Sunday to get a few pics, mainly for insurance valuation. My neighbour came along as he likes to do a bit of photography. Sunroof drive slipping, speedo under reading significantly, engine lumpy on a light throttle and a loud rattle when i went over cobblestones that need to be investigated asap. It's still fidgety under power too. Maybe the camber but I cant say its relaxing to drive like that. A sample of the arty pics with some sort of filter applied I guess.

That is painfully nice - I'm super envious, or as my son would put it - #welljel!

Ok, so it’s a little bit tarty and a lot of money, plus it took 9 months from first chat on Facebook to arrival, but I couldn’t resist it.

That is nice you old tart.

I've got a similar one but I would prefer it if my knob was a bit bigger.

It's a perennial problem I suppose.
