cupric911 Are the image links broken for anyone else?

jhentr Looks great. I bought a set from a local shop for $60 (OEM) recently.

Itll be a great alternative since I assume it's much less $$

CMP looks good! now you just gotta spin the back wheels as fast as the front so they stay in sync!

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.

Agreed about the yellow. That’s why I’m on the fence. I may ask Fred to do a white set for me. So far they have survived a wash so they’re pretty weatherproof.

rb26dett I love how the Volks came out. I also asked him to make me decals for my 240R wheels (Volk style). But I’m still on the fence about these.

Wheel Decals

I just wanted to share some pics of wheel decals that a fellow member here had made for me. His name is Fred @RapidLotus . He’s a great guy to work with. He can make you any decals in pretty much any color.

So recently I picked up a used set of Volk TE37 wheels for my Exige. It was gloss black and in ok condition. I refinished them in bronze and asked Fred to make me some Volk decals for them. I’ll let the pics do the talking.
