Had a question and maybe you've answered previously on this or another thread...apologies in advance if I missed it

When you do a full respray, do you replace all the factory stickers afterwards? If so, can you share your source for getting NOS stickers or reproductions? It appears some stickers are available from the dealer but many have been superceded or are no longer available.

Thanks!

With modern computerised production techniques and digital photography, pretty much any NLA sticker can be replicated accurately, you just need to find a good local sign maker who is up for the work involved.

Or a good color laser printer and Papilio paper if you can get access to the source image in good quality.

9M.
With respect to the painting of the car, do you replicate the factory finish?

On my own factory built CS, some of the primer shows through the top coat slightly on part of the cage and in the front luggage area, we know this is correct.
I wondered if this was acceptable to your customer, as with your attention to detail, it would not be difficult to improve the quality of the paint finish, or do they prefer an original look at perhaps sub par quality compared to the finish you are able to offer?

I also own a factory built 993RS Clubsport and the cage in mine is fully painted, hence the definition of "correct" must be down to the man holding the spray gun on the paint line I would say. At the end of the day though, this is a Ninemeister Clubsport conversion so the paint finish will reflect the wishes of the customer rather than any attempt to pass off the car as the "real thing".
