So I guess it is each to their own, I like graphics/decals which are suited to the car and owner.


now that does look nice and *not rice*

what are they worth? price wise?

Dont you guys know anything?

For every cubic centimetre of stickers and decals, it adds .75KW to the engine output levels.

DUH!

IMO it can look good if done right. For example, i reckon that blood orange BA GT with the the blue tribal graphics airbrushed across it looks good and wouldn't mind doing something similar to that on my car. Not a huge fan a vinyl though, suites the import scene more...

Not a great deal, for both sides of a car you are looking at for standard vinyls (non metallics etc...) you are looking at around $200. They do go up from that point for metallics, reflectives, chromes, colour changing, carbon fibre...

Damm, For tribals, they do look quite nice. They arent to much either. Well colour matched. That makes it hard to choose wheter or not to go graphics. Especially when they are that cheap!

I have a pic of a flaming falcon / phoenix that i think would look sweet on the side of a black EF/EL towards the back. Someone try photoshopping it if you can?

i reckon that it all depends on what u get on the car . . as long as you dont smother the car in decals of jap parts . . . i reckon the right decals in the right spot looks awsome.

Nice Falcon!!!

Yea, All I am thinking of now is some plain graphics. But I am unsure of what colour to go. White car, you naturally think Black graphics, But If I am to do this, I wanna be different! Any Suggestions??

On white you could probably go just about any colour other than black, a metallic blue always looks swoit.

Orange is an awesome colour, so much you can dow ith vinyls. I am hoping in 12 months to have a different vinyl cutter, one which lets me print as well, then I can do all kinds of cool stuff, like fake airbrushing hehehe and at considerably less $$$'s than airbrushing itself
