View Full Version : 1980 Stars & Stripes reconditioning

04-09-2013, 09:23 AM
My son and I are finishing up the complete restoration of a 1980 MasterCraft Stars & Stripes edition. Everything has been redone from the stringers to the upholstery. The gel coat has been cleaned and polished and we are looking to purchase a stock lettering, stars and stripes kit for this boat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :D

What color are you looking for? I know it is difficult for some of the vinyl shops to match some of the old colors. I ordered some yellow stars that were no where near close to the OEM's.

Jim @Bay Area Water Sports had an inventory of old decals. I bought a few from him that were perfect.

I have a pair of orginal side decals in beige that I will part with for the right price. No guarantees to how well the adhesive has held up though as the decals are nearly 30 years old.

[email protected] can cut new decals to match originals. Be sure to measure size of letters and give Jim the dimensions to check. Come on man, need pics...
