    Produce the badges, then "temporarily" apply the badges using some easily removeable means, on one side of the truck. Stand back, and look at it, from various angles, even perhaps different times of the day, and see which YOU prefer. Better than photoshop. Btw, must be nice to have your own vinyl shop :D

    I did the same thing man. I even bought a set of vinyl decals from sockmonkey to put on after I debadged. But when I took them off I liked the clean look so much I left the replacements off. They were sitting for 2 years and I finally gave up and put them up for sale. Truck will stay debadged as long as I have it.

    on your white truck they would look good in black. You can always have her naked for awhile. When the novelty wears off, throw 'em back on...

    Your truck, your choice.

    Personally, I like clean, but on a white truck, I also like black badging, so either way I'd like it.
