Nomad, I think they will look good, but finding the right artist to put a realistic 3-D looking tat of the tongue cap on the end of my nose will be trickier...both of my ears are already pierced so facimilie tail lights are going to be a snap, just have to put them in with the posts facing front...the vent might get painful though...especially if I get one that cranks open and closed...might have to opt for a remote controlled one, if I want to tip my vent to the ladies as they pass by.
safetybruce - I had the opportunity to be bald twice in the past 15 years. I knew it was temporary, and decided to have my whole head henna tattooed. It was fun and looked much better than a bald head on a girl, but it was all flowers, vines and geometric designs. If' we'd had Hamlet then, the wings would have been the first thing on my head! (Then maybe a big heart in the back with a couple roses and "Hamlet" in the middle!)

I love my Shasta wings!! We searched for months just to find a vintage Shasta that still had it's wings and I certainly wouldn't let my Shasta go around 'topless' in front of other campers. She is going to wear those things proudly just like ta tas!
SAVE THE TA TAS!!! And that is coming from someone who is fighting a second battle with breast cancer.
Maybe that could be the name of my Shasta.... Shasta-Ta-Tas.
mawmaw - Have you seen the t-shirt that says: No, they're not real, mine tried to kill me. ?? My kids have threatened me with it for my next birthday. (I'm a 2 time winner, too. So if you're going hairless this time, why don't you have those wings henna tattooed on you head? You'd be the only gal on the block with that!)

Hi all, Just had to add my thoughts here. When I bought my trailer I asked the PO about the wings. "Tore them off!" "Those f***ers leaked!" NO!!!! Of course at that point I knew better then to ask if he had them lying around anywhere. What a hack!!! He did lots of other terrible unspeakable things to her. To many to mention. I actually do have a question, Where do I find out the correct size for the replacement wings I plan to make? I have an 82 Friendship 15. Looking forward to a response. Thanks again to all of you Shasta lovers out there!
We took off our original wings yesterday, GASP! Breathe, only took them off to clean them up. The screws were so rusted, I agree with Jbar, they could have flown off on the trip home. I do think we will investigate tamper resistant replacement screws when we put them back on. As for the "propensity towards odd" I guess we fit right in.
