Thanks for the kind words guys ! It was sold about two weeks ago to an old friend. I'm holding it in the garage until the Michigan snow melts, then it will be shipped to Florida. The good news is my friend will be able to use it all year. The bad news is there is some seller remorse after almost 17 years of continually reconfiguring the Sprite. I've been brainstorming one last project and I can't tink of anything else I can builld at the same dollar/performance ratio.

The way this winter has been going I'm not sure the snow will even be melted this April. I had 8 more inches on last Saturday.

My primary residence in Northville is just outside Detroit (the E-Type is here). The Zetec/Sprite is currently at my secondary residence in Port Austin, 150 miles due north of Detroit. After that there is about 150 miles of Lake Huron ice.

Rick,
Just for comparison to ideas I have in my head, what are the strip width and spacing between?
Thanks,
Dennis

Dennis,

Sorry the car is no longer in my possesion so I don't have the measurements. It was a tape stripe manufactured by 3M, purchased at a PPG paint supply house.. I'll have to work on getting you some numbers for you..
