Has any one done a repaint of a Bill Blass model? If so where did you get the striping decals?

OEM Striping decals are now unavailable I am almost certain. I have a partial set that was acquired w/other stuff and are hardly useable. I think you have to settle for something generic or get an expert. I am told they can be made very close to original by some painter specialists. 8-)

I think they were a dealer addition. Search is your friend: "Pin Striping"

Pin Striping

It details a close replacement I found to mine. May have yours also depending on color scheme. As for the actual "BB" decals and Badge on the rear quarter panels behind the rear quarter window... don't think they exist anymore.
"Ivory" - 1990 Mark VII Bill Blass Edition
3G Alternator, Arnott Air springs front/rear, hardwired dashcam, Tigerpaw whitewalls, all 4 brake lines new NiCopp, all else factory.
