Stongard source?

Ok, so nothing better yesterday after work but to do than a drive-by look-see for Stongard's office/shop.
Short answer, not there, the industrial park space is occupied by a mechanical contractor now.
Would suggest moving on, and find a supplier/retailer for the 3M product, whether they make pattern kits or not is up to you.
The Euro headlight covers are close to 20mm+/- thick, and the body kits pieces are less than 5mm thick (for comparison purposes here only), maybe 2-3mm(?).  

For installation, maybe a good window tinting installing technician would be a possibility, if not a DIY.  Just a thought...
Hope this helps, Gary A...
