    This is a vinly decal that I did for my truck, it is a reverse cut Never Summer. Anyway, this vinly was a 5 year that perfectly matched the speedway blue. It no longer matched after 1 year, so you sould look into the UV vinyl. Also, for $35 a pop shipped it should not be hand cut, you should definately look into a cutter. This is something I could easily do for much cheaper, drawn out in CAD and done with a cutter, in just about any color but I am not going to rain on your parade.

    They are not hand cut. These were made by local printing shop in town. They were cut with a machine

    Ok, that is good, at first you made it sound as though they were hand cut. Why did it take you 5 hours to do the sets you did, it should only take at most 5 min to cut and transfer tape them.

    Just all the b.s of designing them on my truck to what i liked most took a couple hours. getting them on the computer and properly measured and then cut and testing them and matching the 2 colors. takes a bit of time.

    Meh, don't let these guys get you down OP :D There are other Tacoma sights too ya know... :anonymous:

    Good luck with the sales man, I'm sure it will kick off and snowball. Everything looks better/sounds better in person (most of the time).

    :thumbsup: for the effort!
