Looks great! Those are the same style as on my green V... I just have the ones intended for the silver plastics on it so mine have blue instead of the yellow in them.
The only thing I REALLY hate about those graphics is how thick they are. I think they would have conformed a little easier if they were 1/2 the thickness.

looks awesome, did you apply the graphics dry or the soap method?

When I put mine on I did them dry and had to use a heat gun to help get all of the air bubbles out and to get them to conform a bit better. It was a pain in the ass. I would be curious to hear if you used the soapy water method and how it went.

i put on a set of numbers for a buddy of mine, also put signs on a couple of trucks a few years back...

you put some lemon joy in a spray bottle, fill the rest with water, spray the back of sticker and surface where you want it to go.. then you can move the graphics around to the right spot. then use a squeegee to move the bubbles and excess water/soap out. you can still use heat if needed to contour

this way is VERY forgiving

sorry for the hijack BTW

Well you warned me how thick they were, so I went to lowes and got a heat gun before I even attemted it. First I cut out all of the clear so they would conform to the fenders better (They come in big sheets) The first one I tryed was the front fender because it was the flatest surface, Tryed the soad and water and the was a complete failure they were way to thick, so the rest were done dry with a heat gun. These are impossible without a heat gun.

The graphics are cool

I would just hate to cover up the marble plastics

I was going for the naked look, but when I started taking my factory decals off it really showed how faded out it was so I got these to kinda hide it.
