Decals do seem to differ, depending (I assume) on who manufacturers them and/or when. For example I have a spare Laser decal which differs slightly from the ones on the car. So if that's important to you I'd definitely make sure that the one to be supplied matches any existing ones which you have on the car.

I'm after some of those too, can't find any. I asked a couple of companies and we basically have track down the dimensions of the stickers and pass them on.

Are you talking about the bonnet and side stripes? It would be a heck of a job measuring all of those!

If you mean the bootlid decal, would it be the same "Capri 1.6" or "Capri 2.0" as on other models?

It wouldn’t be cheap but you should be able to have one made at a sign makers. They should be able to cut anything out of vinyl but you will pay for the privilege, that’s if you can find stripe width. Or you can take educated guesses from photos, mock up a range of stripes in paper and see which size you prefer. Might not be “OE” but they are so rare, who’d know!?

Yeah, we need to find someone with a GT4 and take it from there.

The GT4 stripes are a multitude of different thicknesses and spacings I seem to remember.
