After

Here they are all done, I very slightly marked one with my nail demising but its not bad

Im a graphic designer so Have redrawn the icons and my mate who has a vinyl company will make the stickers for me to apply

All in all an easy job, masking was the tricks bit.

At the same time I'm getting new transfers made for the calliper repaint (next job)

This looks great, and is a task that I was planning to do!

But the hold-up had been the duplication of the pictures. So if your mate could make a spare set of decals, I'd be keen to get some also.

Can do?

Thanks - DM

No worries I got a spare set made, alternatively I could email you the artwork I created and any local vinyl to you will be able to use it.

Forgot I hadn't posters a picture with the decals on

Iv made it slightly thicker as is was thinner than the parameters of the vinyl cutter but I think it looks stock.
