Decals - What do you think? 9 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 284
Hi All,

I've been in touch with a few different vendors regarding decals, I bought these one's from America. As I get new ones I'll post them up.

So these cost me €19.86 for the pair. I ordered one's fairly similar to these aswell with the line going straight through the lettering which I have if anyone want to buy them off me.

Let me know what you think of these and dont hold back. Comments on how they look, what you think of the cost etc etc.

Also if you have any idea's I'll forward them onto the different company's and see what they come back with design wise.

Right, being honest, I really like the font but think its a little big, particularly in height. Half that height would be perfect IMO.

Like the font but as Swagger said, size might be a little big.

I had etched glass decals before (when I had those windows )and I got decals similar to below.

They're good because they don't stand out from a distance but really do look like they are etched into the glass when you look a bit closer. So, they're probably more of a subtle look.

Yep I agree, they are 2" height, 1" would be better, there's a lad in Spain doing up some designs for me, and he does etched glass ones aswell and will hopefully be alot cheaper, heres an example on ebay from him for general MR2's

They look good - if he can do custom font/letters for similar price, thats a great deal.

Spidey, you should get in touch with wibble or justjj on the OC. They run the OC shop and I think they have a machine for making transfers or know a company that make them. We were offered the OC logo (that everyone has) with the option of regional rep and your screen name included, so they obviously do them in singles and up. prices were reasonable, about £10 each I think.

Worth a try

KC+1 for DECALFX.com! Brilliant site, been on it for over an hour watching all the vids. Lovin the blue 3D CF film and the flexi CF film. Would love a go at that. Used to build RC planes years ago with my dad and we used to wrap the finished balsa wood frame models in something called Solarfilm. Very similar to that flexi wrap. You use a heat gun and stretch it around the shape of the object you are wrapping. Havent done it in over 10 years but I was very good at it back then so reckon with a lil practice id be good again in no time. Would like to try wrapping some interior panels and bits and pieces in CF. Great alternative to painting, plus you can get a flawless result even with patterns etc in a very short time frame (compared to layers of paint and clear coat drying) and for a fraction of the cost. Plus I like to do as much as possible myself rather than pay to have things done. Thats half the fun and hobby for me! In saying that though, I just cleaned up and sprayed my spare wheel and it looks great! Will post a thread soon of my clean up of the spare wheel well and surround. From scrapheap to showroom. Big turn around for 3 hours work.

Looks great, if that can be done in glass etch small and neat enough to go on either the wing mirror glass or the rear quarter panel window, id be into a set.

Good work, KC+1
