...oh, I love these Leyland ST things. I bought two of these Leyland ST-stickers from my Leyland-dealer here in Germany when they were still around in 1977. But they were damaged when the Mini was being repainted.

The stickers I saw as reproduced items with isaydingdong but there the "y" in Leyland is not correct. I wrote to them to use USAbold or Zurich fonts which are virtually identical (and correct!) but to no avail. Dommage!

I could look into having some of my old decals reproduced...sounds like there are a bunch of members that would like some.

OK...leave this with me....be patient!
I am not really in favor of sending these to a commercial reproducer...they end up selling them for their benefit. I would prefer having a batch made locally and then I can send to a Forum member to distribute to those who want some....a win win for all.
