      I would have thought any decent local sign writer can copy them.

      1966 Coupe: 1995-
      1966 Land Rover Series 2a: 2012-
      2005 Mustang GT 2014-
      2007 California Special Replica: 2010-2014

        The OE stripes are actually lots of little dots reducing in size printed on a clear carrier so not easy to replicate at the usual vinyl suppliers or printers.
        You can buy the stripe decal sections from Ford but when I last checked they were astoundingly expensive. It was cheaper to have completed new stripes made so that's what we did.
        We had them print a graduated fade onto clear - it works well if there's a decent contrast between the body colour and the stripe colour. We added a pinstripe just because we could.
        This is the work of Joyce Design in Chelmsford - they know their stuff.

          Only Ford will be able to supply genuine matching ones.

          Any graphics printer supplying them won't be able to provide an exact match for 2 reasons.

          1. They'll have Ford chasing them threatening Cease and Desist / prosecution
          2. It would take hours to map and produce an exact copy.

          It's produced on a specific printer, GERBER and there doesn't appear to be too many companies in the U.K with them.

          Another Cali Special owner I know of tried to get some side stripes printed but didn't find anyone who would do them
          She ended up buying some old stock off Ebay in the States.

          This is what digital looks like close up, from my 2014 Cali Special side stripe.
          The amount of colour, in my case silver, changes along the fade.

          From this at the front,
