Cool. I ordered the Smoky and the Bandit gold eagle reflective decal for the hood and a waving flag reflective decal for the tailgate from Vinyl Creator. They will be delivered on Monday. I work for the defense department so I have Monday off and am stoked to get them installed.
I'll bet Vinyl Creator just got a whole lotta business from this thread! They are first rate to work with so far. I will post pics and ease of installation when I complete the project.
Received my black and white American flag hood decal yesterday...going to be a bit until I install, but I'm excited to see how it shakes out. One note...it may be self evident, but how does one install a sticker, "wet?" Is it in the instructions? I assume it is easier to slide around, until the adhesive dries? Just wanted to some insight from those who have done it. Air bubbles will also drive me crazy. Thanks!
You could use a water in a spray bottle and dampen the gate and graphic. If I were doing mine again I would still start at the center and work to one end. I would start out dry, then mist the gate and graphic as I work toward the end.
As I was working mine to each end, the gate begins to taper up and down as well as side to side. That is where I began to get several bubbles trapped. If I had wetted the graphic and gate it would have been much easier to work out the bubbles. If you haven't installed many graphics, you might want to find a local graphics company to install it.
