Italian flag

I'm thinking of putting a small flag on the wings and was thinking about the one in the pic (eBay link), but I'm not quite certain the chrome looks too good. Does anybody have any links with alternate versions? Preferabely with one that looks like the above, only without the chrome.

Re: Italian flag

What about vinyl? Then you can get the exact size and design you like.

Re: Italian flag

I think I'd like it to be a badge. Ideally something like this, methinks. Not sure whether it's a badge or a sticker, though...

Re: Italian flag

I'd be carefull with the ebay badges as they don't weather too well and the chrome maybe last a few months unless you give it a good coat of laquer to protect it. The caio stickers on my little italia 90 are still good nearly 20 years on so would also advise vinyl....In fact they have outlasted many parts of the bodywork....

Re: Italian flag

Could you pry the stickers off and send them to me then?

Maybe the easiest would be if I just gave up this idea and saved the few £s...

I only know Guido who works in a pizzeria and lives with his mom. I very much doubt he'll be able to source one

I've got a very short one () so I think the flag's out of the question .
Not too easy to tell what the stickers really look like... Though I'm sure "16V Racing Sporting Abarth" would look good on LRB

Yup, that's the one I got the idea from (I posted a link to a pic of it in post #3 )

Re: Italian flag

Would this be overkill?

It could go around the whole car twice. Subtle.
