New 1996-1998 Sunline Side Decals

As some of you know from the Facebook group, I've been working on creating replacement decals for my '97. This is the first of hopefully many to come.

This decal is officially known as the sun silhouette, and was used on 1996-1998 Sunline Solaris trailers. It was not used on Slide Room or Saturn models. The 1995 model used the same shape decal but with different colors.

I did the artwork for this myself based on scans I took of new old stock decals I have, and worked with a local sign shop to have them printed. The original decals were all silkscreened. The vinyl stripes in these reproductions are all solid metallic vinyl, so they should hold up to UV much better than the old ones. The green metallic is a 100% accurate match, and the gold is probably a 95+% match, the closest available. The suns are not an exact match, since the original silkscreening used dots to create the color, so this laser printing is more even and smooth looking as was originally intended. Keep in mind the colors were matched to the original, so these may stand out a little next to your old faded stripes. But it'll certainly be better than a big white gap.

If you had the original decal to copy, paid someone to do the artwork, and paid to order the correct vinyl to match (this special metallic vinyl is special order and much more expensive than regular vinyl), it would probably cost you well over $200. Possibly more. When I had these made, I explained what I was doing with them to the decal shop owner, and he said he wouldn't recommend selling them to y'all for any less than $80 a piece, in order to compensate myself fairly for the artwork.

That said, I'm looking to be fair and not charge y'all a lot of money, I'm doing this for my love of Sunline. I'm offering a special for this initial order of $130/pair, shipped to your door. I only want to sell in door side/off door side pairs only right now. Chances are you need or will need both anyway.

It's kinda hard to tell apart, but here's a shot of the original decal on the left, and the reproduction overlayed on the right. The colors are really that close"



Here's the complete reproduction decal, this happens to be the off door side or street side:



Payable through Paypal, shipping via medium flat rate box included in cost for United States only. I will provide a tracking number for the package when I set up the shipment. Send me a PM if you're interested in making your Sunline look new again!

They look great. I have a 2002 Sunline sloris. I'm missing the one on the back and the one on the front on the stone gard

I probably won't look into making this one for a while since there's an eBay version out there already, but that one isn't a very close match.
