Make sure that you dont take those on and off all the time because they will scratch the crap out of your truck. For magnets I think they look good.

Clover or Shamrock always seems like such a happy or positive image.

Same thing happened on my red truck, left them on for like 3 months, when i took them off i almost crapped myself when i saw how bad the clear was. It was literally dulled white in the perfect shape of the magnet. i tossed them in the garbage that same day and just had the truck lettered.

I do take them off every night. I park the truck on the street out front of my house so I take them off to not make it so obvious that a commercial truck is parked on a narrow residential side street. Also, my idiot friends like to get drunk and place the magnets all over the truck or my neighbors cars haha.

I hope so too. I live in a small part of Boston with a predominant irish population. Also name recognition is very important in a small town.

Thanks for the heads up. I did that with my previous signs and I found out the hard way just like you did
