If you want a picky remark i would say it would look even better if the wide green stripe with the 3 service listings on it was the same color as the green is "Lynden" co. name logo.
Other than that it looks fantastic.

Looks really good. My equipment is all being painted black with green text/white accents. This is a little preview for me and it looks good. Can we see your truck(s) too?

nice rig buddy!
Just curious, when you hang things on the walls of the enclosed trailers, how far can you screw into the wall of those thing before you have to wory about going through the outer wall, and will the interior plywood support all that you need to hang there.

Looks really good! The "Cargo Express" sticker on the back is a little distracting. I'd lose that if possible.

We did try the darker green (although hard to see but the inside of the lettering is actually a hi res grass pic, not a color) and it just didn't pop enough with the letters. Blended in to the black.

You have a good 1.5 inchs but I use short screws and attach pine boards to the 3/8ths plywood walls since they are too thin to screw directly too.

That is coming off soon.

Here are some pics of the truck.

What did you do about going over the rivets? I need to do mine but was thinking they would be a problem. Btw looks nice.

Then why plaster your phone number all over a vehicle that you drive all over your area in size 9000 font. There's a better chance of some dumb kid seeing the number when driving by and making mindless calls than there is that someone from a forum dedicated to lawn care would call a lawn care company with mindless calls.

Greenery as far as the rivets when I'm installing a trailer job I always take the rivets out and lay the vinyl on then put the rivets back in....looks alot better and will last longer. Not quite so much work as well.

Got any ideas for rivets that have been on so long they prolly wont come out cleanly??

Great job on the truck and trailer. I personally would have taken off the "Cargo Express" logo and moved your logo higher up. (unless they are paying you to sponsor them)

DOETSCHOUTDOOR Pick up this tool http://www.signwarehouse.com/shop/graphics/00000001/R_brush.jpg
Then poke holes around the rivet and heat up the vinyl on and around the rivet and use the brush working outwards in a circular motion working your way in and form it around the rivet. Hope this helps!

Drill them out and replace them with new rivets. If the holes are rusted, you may have to drill the holes to a size or 2 larger and use the corresponding rivet size.

What cost $1200? The decals?

$1200 seems a little steep....I did a HazMat Trailer (6' x 20') enclosed for $1400 using mostly reflective vinyl....sounds like you might have gotten the shaft...sorry to tell ya that....looks great though!

Actually that is cheap for around here. Everything is more expensive in Canada. A full wrap was quoted at $4000-4500. We took all of the screws out, vinyl over and then put them back in. I am very happy with how it turned out. And this is a 20 ft long trailer with a 9 year high performance vinyl.

LOL thats funny, but true. Thats a very long trailer must be run when you get to your residental yards.

I already explained why its like that. No issues with residential, we do very few postage stamp size lots.
