About 90 give or take. SCI may have a deal making them less. 4 were purchased in the Orlando market.

Richard,

I have been curious about the dignity logo on SCI Coaches, are they etched in the glass or is it a vinyl graphic made to look etched?

It most likely would be a vinyl transfer, since sandblasting the hard outer shell of the tempered glass would most likely just shatter during the sandblasting process.

I would say it's acid-etched. A vinyl transfer wouldn't last long in Florida.

It's a decal so it can be removed when coach is sold. It is a Dignity "SCI" requirement to have them on the coach and came in that way from the builder.
