Default Bad Mariah Decals on Ebay

More "Mariah" vinyl decals on E-Bay !


This auction is for (2) new 4"x 14" Mariah boat decals. The decals are red, but other colors are available; maroon, black, and gold.


http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Maria...em230236891633

This is the weirdest font I've ever seen for Mariah! Ok, make that the second weirdest, I just noticed our forum home page... the "M" makes me dizzy.

Somehow, I don't think they're OEM... Looks like someone made them up.

Oh well, I may be wrong too,

They don't look OEM to me either. The dot over the i with the sun is also wrong...

I suspect you two are right about those decals being non OEM. The fact that they mentioned "Please specify if you would like another color. If you need another size, e-mail and we can price it." leads me to think that they are simply making these themselves.

    OK, I sure messed this post up and can't figure out how to fix it! Apologies to those who were involved.

    Anyway,

    DO NOT PUT THESE ON YOUR BOAT!!! They are NOT OEM decals... And the price is outrageous. Scam, stay away!!

    oh well, you got the point across that these were poor replicas as we suspected and are to be avoided if you want something that looks original!

    well for some reason I clicked "merge" instead of "move". it was early in the morning! So from now on, I'm going to wait until at least 9am before I decide to mess with the admin controls!

    Chris,

    I have a 1993 1900 that I am in the midst of restoring. I need the Mariah lettering and the badges on each side as they badges that I have are really hazed out. I am wondering if someone has ever tried to buff these with a headlight refinisher to restore the gloss. I am hesitant to do as I don't want to destroy them. Please contact me if you have any lettering for sale or a source. Thanks,
