[urq] authenticity of door rings

Never seen the OEMs, but they are supposed to have positioning marks for
alignment with the edges of the door. So I imagine the backing paper and the
thin plastic foil would be much larger that the rings themselves.


-----Message d'origine-----

I have a set of door rings (black) I bought years ago in anticipation of
purchasing a project ur-q that I never got (the owner died suddenly and the
family moved the car to MA from NC) (anybody know it ;...gobi/chocolate +/-
90K miles near Weymouth?).  I came across them this morning and started to
wonder if they're authentic or copies.  I could not find much in the way of
markings but I noticed little stickers that have "111999 03 " on them and
they came with a blue plastic applicator and I know they're printed on 3M
decal paper.

They are the dot-fade and look real enough, but I'm no expert on how to tell
if they are originals or a very good copy.

Any thoughts?
