    Anyone have a close up? So they have like an 1/8" radius instead of like a 1/4" bevel?

    5342438A-0132-41FF-ACDB-B5D1DD5800CF.jpg Yup, rounded edges, looks really nice. I had the flat decals on before and they were okay but the raised letters look a lot better to me. Not a great picture but you can see the rounded edge.

    Agreed! I have the flat decals now but I bought raised letters. Unfortunately I think they're flat, meaning no contouring. How hard was it to pull the old decals.

    I went with the Black Reflective vinyl decals from @rrentrop I like them.... they are very reflective when hit by headlights...!! They do not look black in this pic, as the sun is hitting them directly and they are reflecting..!!

    They look black most of the time..!!

    Super easy to remove the stickers, used a hairdryer and they peel off.

    Has anyone heard anything about plastidipping raised decals? I'm looking for a specific color that I'm yet to find out of the box.

    The ones I got from Amazon are made of zinc I believe. They are very nice quality.

    Don't know why that wouldn't work. Sounds like a good idea.
