    Both legs

    Those were originally for 1993 SX Exciter, but by little modification they went in.

    I went to the firm that makes decals, templates etc. and took original seat cover with me. Then i made the paint and used RAL3013 colorcode. The paint is Sikkens Autobase Plus (car paint) with elast-o-actif and hardener and was made in spraycan. You have to use it within few days (beacuse the hardener). Therefore that text outlast longer.

    I own the paintshop, so i also made the hood and sidepanels paint too and sprayed it myself. It took few moments to match it perfectly.
