Here are some pictures of my flag decals from Sockmonkey (who just recently left the business. Temporarily hopefully!). I had received them a few weeks ago, but the weather was finally in my favor yesterday.
I originally got the idea from LT1. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/det...-too-much.html
I had also been wanting to do a wash and wax, so I did that and was thoroughly impressed with the products of autogeek.
I had removed my previous factory decals with a bit of difficulty even using the blow dryer a few weeks ago.
The pictures are in my photobucket, to save me the time of posting each picture in here.
I know the three noticable dents look really bad in these pictures.. But you can't really notice them in person.
I debated about which way it should be facing.. But this is what I eventually decided on.
I'll try to capture some more pictures in the sun, but that may be a few days.
Mounting it was easy enough. I got the measurements of the entire decal, and roughly traced it on a blank copy paper, and placed that approximately where I wanted it and got the exact measurements so I could have it in the same place on the other side. I used some masking tape to help with placement.
I started with a tool similar to windshield cleaners you see at gas stations (By the gas pumps) but a lot smaller. I used a credit card to get the smaller spots. I found wiping the water that oversprayed above the decal when I was mounting it was a good idea, in case the water was to drip down and cause problems.
I don't have anything planned at the moment, but does anyone know of something I could put over the decal to protect it if I was to go offroading? I think the decals will hold up fine in day to day driving of course, but I'm afraid a branch could start to peel one off.
Tell me how you like it!
