    Made this for another member who never finished the design process with me. Here it is finished on my truck. I took off the sport part after the pic... I like the TRD there

    Multi-point tow hooks, new bored 2.7L engine, custom paint. 3 inch adjustable Fabtech front coils, 2.5 inch rear AAL. Front Aussie locker. LED bed lights. Full LED conversion interior and exterior. Relentless Fabrication front and rear bumpers. 4X4innovation sliders. BAMF bed rack. CVT rooftop tent.
    Finally got the right side of the truck done. Looks good. I think it is a good thing you changed out the paper you were using though. I had a harder time getting the backing off this one than the other side. But it all worked out!

    I think next time I do one that size I may end up trying a wet install. I tried my dangdest to keep the back of the decal clean, and the body panel clean, but I still ended up with several little spots that ended up getting some on it. but I still love the look! You are going to get a lot of exposure in June at the local rodeo as my truck is going to be on display there with my LED systems and such.

    Awesome!

    I have always run into trouble with wet installs personally. Everything I sell can be wet installed though.

    Thats cool. Wonder what I can put there... hmmm

    Made to order :cool:









    If this multicam suff on the 3M vinyl works out ill get some additional Camo patterns. Realtree offers their patters on 3M material... I want to test it before I offer it to anyone.

    Any testing you want, just let me know. I'll be a guinni pig. My truck gets a lot of advertizing exposure due to my business.

    Tested out the 3M vinyl tonight... Pretty sweet stuff. It had these ridges in the glue so you can push out bubbles easily. Also has pressure activated adhesive. Its like 1/4 sticky until you press it out. The piece I played with came off/on really easy several times. After you squeegee it, it sticks like normal stuff.

    Tried to snap a pic of the ridges on the back...

    The multicam pattern is Ok. I was hoping it would be clearer... its kind of fuzzy. Its not available from the creators yet so I tried a printed vinyl off ebay. Guess thats what I get... Test sticker came out good... need to make some adjustments on the machine since its thicker(Printed then laminated). I will definitely be picking up some realtree camo

    At some point I may reorder my bed side decals that you made me. I may want to try that 3M stuff and see if it looks better. Don't get me wrong, I like the look of the decals now, but when you get even marginally close to them you can see the spots where I got dust or trash underneath, and a few air bubbles that I had to slit and press out.
