even if you can find a single part of the stripe, I recommend replacing the entire side. not only do the stripes fade, the also are made in different batches and the colors may be slightly off. if it is reflective, it will even be farther off. depending on how big the scratch is, you might be able to "fix it" with a permanent marker. find the closest color to that area. if it is really thin, like a key scratch, you can fill it in with a crayolla crayon. get the 64 color pack. phred

Agreed on the buying the entire side.  I tried just buying the piece I needed and it was a "no go" and ended up buying the whole side anyway.  Wink Paul~

Phoenix is never in a rush for anyone. But definitely worth the wait
