Default Vintage Trinity Stickers -- HELP!

Hey Guys,

Back in the late 80's and early 90's before I started running for AE/Reedy, I ran for Trinity. Over the past year, I have been gathering all the parts to re-create the Yokomo 834B I was running when I first became sponsored by Trinity.

Here's the glitch...I no longer have any of the original Trinity stickers that had the three lined circles on the left of the Trinity logo (to reproduce my body paint scheme). Any of you guys happen to have an old white (preferable) or black Trinity sticker sheet deep in the caverns of your RC room?

I would gladly buy them and pay for shipping.

Also looking for the GOLD Hot Trick rear chassis brace for the 834B!

Thanks!

Old guy here...dog fighter 834B...man, memories...I wish I didn't sell mine 20 years ago, I really want one back. Saw one on ebay for like $1500 NIB...want it, but I kinda want to keep my $1500 as welll...LOL

BTW..I think I saw the GOLD rear chassis brace from ebay, you are talking abou that rear roll cage that mount the rear shocks right..?

Have you tried search GOOGLE for the image of the Trinity logo vector image then send to the printer and make couple sheets..? I know we have local racer that can do custom decal for like $15-20 a sheet, not too bad...I did that for F1.

I grew up in Chicago...going to Al's Hobby every Saturday morning in preparation for Sunday's racing with Dieter, Jones, Swanson...ah the fond memories! Yes, the 834B I have now was not cheap to gather! Brand new 834B Yokomo kit, Delta graphite chassis, Delta shocks, CRP shock mounts, JG bumper, 1200mah Sanyos, Trinity Monster Horsepower, Proline 109 tires, Bolink Funco body, etc., just like we used to run them! Still trying to track down one of the old Delta speedos...

No, the gold Hot Trick rear chassis brace just made the rear chassis stiffer and held the hot trick cables that actually prevented the arms from flexing outward and dropping the dogbones. I attached a photo. Shocks still mounted to the aluminum rollbar in the middle of the chassis.

As for the stickers, thanks for the recommendation. I plan to go that route if I cannot find some originals. When I go diggin' in my RC room, I know I find some relics, so I am hoping someone out there does the same.

Photo below is what I need (other than the Trinity stickers)

I know this is an old thread, but I'm after the same Trinity 'Monster Horsepower' logo and sticker sheets, in black and/or white. Or the Trinity/three-circles vector/logo, or help with someone who may have re-done them since? thanks
