Default Decals for Calipers

Where can I find Jaguar Decals for newly painted brake calipers for my XKR?

63etype,
The ones suggested above are rather expensive. If you go unto ebay and type in "Jaguar caliper decals" in the subject line box, you will get a number of listings from about $5.98 to about $8.00. I bought the $5.98 ones from the first vendor that shows up at the top of the list. These calipers were painted and the lettering put on about 3 weeks ago. Pictures below:

By the way, I ordered the silver metallic lettering to sort of match the wheels. I have seen others use the white lettering as well. Both look nice.

Default Different strokes for different folks

I believe that the correct decals for a 2003 XKR would be the set that I first pointed out. Yes, they are more expensive but they are of a high quality and match the factory applied logo to the std. Brembo calipers. The two part decal is properly curved to match the shape of the Brembos and as a two part set won't require the adjustment of individual letters upon application. Of course I've been wrong before and will surely be again and perhaps originality isn't what 63etype is looking for<G>

I noticed your red side markers with the cat logo along with the red wheel inserts...Looks great. I have plain orange side lens on mine, are yours something that is available as well? I have a red XKR similar to yours and the combination looks really good. Great Picture. Do your side markers light or are they just logo's and are they available somewhere?

No I think you are correct. That is what I have now and the decals are scuffed and worn so need replacing and a general "freshening" to clean up.

RDMinor,
You are probably correct. I don't have Brembos, so I wasn't looking for the correct ones. There was another vendor who offered the curved lettering and from which I tried ordering on several occasions, each time an answer came back saying that the vendor was on indefinite vacation. I then resorted to ordering the ones that I did. For those with Brembos who want originality, I believe your noted supplier would be more appropriate.

63etype,
Those leaper side medallions do not light up, and I have seen them on ebay. Below is a link to a left side one, but I'm sure I have seen both sides offered on ebay on several occasions. They were originally on my car when I got it, I would assume they were standard issue.

The red inserts you were referring to, are those the center caps on the wheels? If yes, they are also available on ebay all the time. I will see if I can find the link and I will add it to this post.
