Very nice!!

Love the colour. Where did you get the decals?

I have a few frames I want to restore, but I can't find the right decals.

Now I've done it! I've gone overboard and ordered a set of Bob Jackson Stickers, 531 decals and the laminated original job card. Should go with the Dura Ace seatpost and square taper chainset I bought for it. Photos as soon as it's all done.

I visited Visual Impact with my Harry Hall bike. I wanted to buy some stickers - red lettering on a white background - similar to yours. But they could only offer me the letters mounted on a backing paper. Problem is the frame has the previous owner's surname on decals underneath a coat of lacquer. Rather than remove the lacquer I just want sticky vinyl. Your Bob Jackson decals look exactly the type I what I wanted. Anyone any ideas for obtaining sticky vinyl type?

Already checked Nick at Lloyds. Not listed on his site. Every other manufacturer is though!

I'm off to a hardware shop now I've given up on Bob Jackson ever bieng helpful ( I don't want to talk about how monumentally obstructive they've been ). I'm going to get plain cream panels and get Visual put YET more bloody stickers on.
