As I posted in a previous post my 80 bird is in the shop getting repaired. Its been in for 4 months. I got sick of waiting and I know I was getting dogged some and called and made a point that I don't want to wait all summer. The manager told me that it was painted and will go to fitting to put back the glass and other parts and would be out minus the stripe Friday. He says he is having trouble getting a stripe and eagles from California. This is too crazy and I told him we need to look elsewhere to source parts. Does anyone know where you can get stripes for a bird and the eagles that will actually make and ship them?j Thanks.

Funny you said that. I called the owner and talked with him and he said they can make it and its 5 to 10 days max to my door for 209. I called the shop and he said get it and he will pay for it. Its ordered. Thanks.

I would have said try there first and if no luck try there second. I'd expect if they were searching specifically for eagle stickers from CA it might be the issue. I wouldn't trust a shop to know which parts are correct or what I wanted anyway, plus their cut.
