Thanks for the posting of the pictures! Looking great but I agree with the yellows being a bit off. Colors can be hard to match because of the vinyl is not produced in a bunch of shades and cannot be "mixed" to match a certain color. I'd be glad to try another color if you like. I am thinking a white set might go better.
All the decals I make are cut from VViVid vinyl which is automotive wrap so should up well to anything we can throw at it environmentally. They state expected durability is 5 - 7 years but since most of our cars are stored indoors I would expect longer. Another advantages of automotive wrap over hobby vinyl is that it is easily positionable, removable, and has bubble release technology.
I can make pretty much anything but my present limitations are 1' x 5' because my cutter only handles 1' wide material.
