Hi All
Completely refreshing my Exige down here in South Africa. Car 027 and have owned from new in 2000. (will send all pics etc when done)
Has anyone got a template (ideally electronic) for the rear lower side stone chip protectors (that were originally in the textured black). Looks like i have the right Every Stonechip material (or similar) but ideally need a file to send to vinyl cutters to cut them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated... or if anyone knows anyone with a vector file i would greatly appreciate it.
At the same time if anyone has the vector files for stickers on rear (LOTUS and Exige) that would be marvellous.
Thanks
Tim

Hiya, Dan at Divine Handcraft in the UK does the stone-chip protectors if that's any help? https://divinehandcraft.co.uk/products/ ... -set-black

Also, there was a recent thread on the rear logos/stickers - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21111 - some links in there although the artwork may not be 100% accurate to the originals.

Cant ship anything here (stickers) as it will never get through (postal service here is shocking at the best of times and our lockdown rules are beyond pathetic... have not been able to buy cigarettes or booze for 7 weeks and only allowed out for 3 hour exercise window a day, most business closed... and other crazy rules, but anyway), and car due to be finished in a few weeks so really need a template or vector drawing of those side stone chip protectors to get them cut locally here.
Drawing a blank everywhere and obviously despite the fact that i have the only original mk 1 exige here so will not set up my own Exige stone chip business, none of the people who make them will 'lend' me the file (fair enough). If anyone has any 'flat' on the backing that they can photograph head on with ruler so i can accurately redraw or anything that i might be able to work with.... I would really appreciate it. Not sure what else i can do, (for such a simple thing!). Thats one of the problems in living at the arse end of Africa ;)

Ah it's a pity no-one will share their file :( I found these images online, might be a good starting point to make your own.
I can try and measure mine tomorrow if you like, to get the correct scale. :thumbup:

OK I've had the tape measure out, there are a lot of curves! :?

The easiest dimension to measure was between the points shown which was approx 365mm. That would make those grid squares 50mm by my reckoning. :thumbup:

When fitting on the car, the gap from the wheelarch is about 30mm, and bear in mind the bottom of the stonechip vinyl does go quite far under the clam.

Hope this helps!

You are a superstar. thanks so much. Going to attempt to scale draw in the morning. And then have some test ones cut.
Really appreciate your effort on this.
