Hi,

Has anybody had any experience fitting wedding ribbons to a 9000 or a classic 900?

I'm using my T16s and 2 Carlssons for my wedding in December.

Thanks Adam.

On the 9000 they can tie round the bonnnet release in the centre, then in through the doors to tie off on the rear view mirror.

Not sure on the c900 though.

We tied them to the bonnet release and trapped the other ends in the windows. They went floppy when you opened the doors though, so tying to the mirror or the sun visor sounds better.

We used the sun visors on the wedding car at my brother's wedding the other week.

You could thread it through the grille around the central Saab logo and then up to the sun visors or mirror.

Not sure if it's easy to visualise what I mean.

Perhaps something like this instead? (stolen from another thread)

This is my car dressed for my big day. She was my actual wedding car not only used to get me there ontime but also transport us both after the ceremony. My bride drove her Scooby sti to the venue too, much to her dads disapproval lol. But a word from the (now) wise, don't try too hard in getting to the church on time as the ribbons aren't keen on dealing with 130mph head winds :lol:
