I'm not holdings gun to your head to buy here...
But for most folk south of the border, it will cost still to ship.
When a "grassroots" product emerges - I say grassroots in that Stuart, myself and a few others wanted decals, so we made decals; I do not claim for these to be the first or revolutionary - generally there is good support. Especially if folks want the Riviera style made. I can tell you if folks prefer to buy Scott's decal (which is 100% their right to) I wouldn't develop the Riviera style any further. I did this because I saw a few people wanted them, and I had the means to.
I'll be sure to keep an eye out for any items you bring to market - in case they can sell it cheaper, without shipping, in a different country, while being post-responsive. You know?
Appreciate the heads up, but I still don't see it as apples to apples, oranges to oranges.

We support each other here on a daily basis with help, advice, and suggestions on a wide array of subjects.

Why not support each other with some hard earned greenbacks?

Support your fellow VW enthusiasts!

Or hold on to that currency with a death grip so you can move.

Noone is claiming to have invented the wheel...
Congrats on working in a sign shop, feel free to make your own decal. I'll send you the file if you need it... Now stop being a troll...

So far as I am aware, my early-1973-model-year (i.e. circa late-August or early-September 1972), VW 1600 Type 2 Westfalia Continental has never had any external Westfalia decals or stickers, since my father bought it second-hand in January 1975, and I have no reason to think it ever had any! Shocked

You're spot on, as usual Nigel.

Only the 79's got them from the factory. Then there seems to be some confusion as to which Vanagons would get them, and nothing but speculation as to which got decals with "curved" L's and which got "sharp" L's.
Your 73 would not have had decals.

Smile

He might be talking about the small rack logo Mike. The one me and Kevin were bantering about.

Look for my purchase here soon brother Wink

As Nigel pointed out, this giant "Westfalia" decal didn't happen until 1979.

Regardless, it looks great and your reflective one is a nice added safety feature!

My next question, who wants to repop that red and blue in reflective?


Or is there a clear reflective tape that could go over it?


Hmm....

My 1973 VW Type 2 Westfalia Continental doesn't have ANY external logos or stickers of ANY description; either on the elevating roof, roof rack or main vehicle bodywork!

The only thing to positively identify it as a Westfalia or a Continental, is the small aluminium plate, screwed onto the bottom of the rear rock-and-roll bed cum bench seat.

mike, I don't know why you bother. fuck em. let them get it cheaper somewhere else.

I ran into the same thing when I had these made

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.



it was so I could run a late black face speedo in an early cluster. didn't feel like reinventing the wheel, and had these made. all told, I was into them for like 80.00.

someone asked for one some time ago. told them 20 shipped. their reply? "dude, for a sticker?"

well, asshole, go to the sign place talk with the artist, go over the proofs then have them made. these are a nice plasticky thick kind of material.

so, after you sell 10 of them, you'll get yours for "free"...no good deed goes unpunished mike....
