    Good try. Thanks for looking . I'd like to find the exact material. I'm going to move forward with polishing after the holidays. I'll just mask off the rubber. I have enough factory striping left from last time. Keep your eyes open for more of the 2 1/4" striping. My shop can make the letters but the striping comes 8' in pieces. and a Airglide pedo tube there really hard to find.

    I actually went with a derivative of SeaDek to replace mine so it matches what I'm doing on the swim platform. It's a soft material so it will not be hard and/ or plastic looking. Will see if I like, they are making mine from the original patterns as I was able to get bow and dash pads off easily. It's a modern update to an old look.

    As far as striping goes, I ordered 150 feet of yellow, orange, red combined into one stripe and have leftover. I also have a set of correct size waves along with plenty of blue stripe. I also have the Supra Comp ts6m in white ready to go. I even have a set of the Kevlar SupraTrac decals and rear transom Official World Championship Tow Boat decals. Everything you see on my Comp in this thread...https://forum.supraboats.com/showthr...pra-Comp/page6. is available and ready for ship.

    I may have some old original pitots you can have. Would need to check my inventory.

    I looked at comp pictures. You have did a assume job on that comp but I'm partial to your Rider. Hope you still have it and if not, it went to loving home. I have the letters and the wave made already. I'm interested in the striping if the finish width including the blue is about 2 1/4". I had toyed with the idea of changing the blue strip and the wave to blue reflective color of the same blue IMG_0799.JPGtone. Would you part with about34'.

    Thanks for the comments. The beloved Rider is still in my possession undergoing a rotisserie restoration as I type and I will have a new thread on her since the last one was taken down years ago. I got screwed royally by Bennett's Boat Repair on the last set of stringers and so she took a back seat to other projects for the last 6 years. I have since decided to restore her once again using composite stringers even after a major fail on the top cap. She will be brought back from the dead if it's the last thing I do on this earth.

    As far as Comp goes, I did my best to duplicate the original striping. I took dimensions on everything before I began the restoration. The major difference is the color blue that I used not the sizing. With my Rider, I changed the light blue to the Olympic blue as it pops much better against the red, so I ultimately went with Olympic blue on the Comp as well to match both boats. It's personal preference on a lot of this stuff and don't blame you if you keep the light blue. Avery is manufacturer on the blue I used.

    Posting some pics below and description to help you better understand if this fits your needs.

    Currently, the multi-stripe is in the hands of forum member NoWake in TN as he decided to make his twin Comp to mine look new again after seeing my pics. I should have plenty for you once he ships it back to me. I'd be more than welcome to ship you whatever you need.

    Multi-stripe is as follows:
    1007 yellow 1/4” width
    No spacing
    1010 tangerine 1/2” width
    No spacing
    76 red 1” width

    Single stripe blue is as follows:
    1016 Olympic blue 3/8 inch roll.

    Matching years and matching trailers on the two '83 Supras? How did you manage that?
