Correct Stripes for a 73 Mach 1
#11
Hey David,

Thanks very much for the pictures of your car! It's great to see the actual correct stripes.

Did you get my PM with my address? Just wondering because, as of today, September 13, I have not received them in the mail yet.

Will let you all know how they compare once I get them.

Thanks again, Peter

I did get the address. I scanned the rub offs and was going to send if you will pm me your email address. I do not know how to load the .pdf files to the site since we have the new format. I will mail tomorrow also.
You will see them in a couple days.
Can you tell by the pictures with the scale up if any you have are right?

Sorry it took a while, I was waiting for the rubbings to come in the mail but I never received them. So I took what you posted and cleaned them up a bit in Photoshop and printed them on a sheet of transparency. It was too hard to see when I printed them on paper. Anyway, I put the stripe on a light table and held it flat with a sheet of glass and then placed the transparency over the top. 

As I suspected the Ford set I purchased in the 80s comes out very close and the aftermarket set is pretty terrible as far as I am concerned. Once again, I just find it so hard to believe that these companies can't find an original set, like I did, and just scan them in and make a perfect copy for us. Why should we have put up with these sub-standard repos when a totally correct set is so easy to reproduce.

Anyway, here is my findings... the first 8 pages are of the scans and them placed over my older set and the last 4 are of the newer set with all the issues. 

Hope this helps anyone else who is looking into getting a correct set of stripes for their 73 Mach 1. Sadly, if you want them right you have to find someone who will make of copy of an original set. Like I am going to do.

And a very heartfelt THANK YOU to David for the invaluable pictures and rubbings.
