    Howdy all,
    My wife got a vinyl cutter and has been itching to vinyl my truck. I was a little worried, but I think it turned out OK. This is also my personal vehicle, so we wanted something subtle, but also wanted it badged.

    What do ya'll think? Not bad for a first try ehh?

    Here is our other truck, it is just for work, so it is more of a billboard:laugh: We had it badged a few years ago

    Looks nice, lawn tamer. I like the large rear door window on the Chevy/GMC extended cabs.

    Yeah, I'm curious about the vinal cutting machine too. I've heard they aren't really that expensive, though the roll vinal can get costly. And of course you need some comopyter graphice knowledge to make it work...

    I think it looks great! I'd like to do the same thing on my GMC rear windows. Just something small like that, probably just my logo and phone mumber.

    The machine we used was about $400, it cuts letters/graphics up to 8.5" high, the vinyl is sold in rolls, my wife got a 24" wide roll that was 30' long for $30, she then cut it into 8.5" strips. My wife got the machine from a friend, not sure what she paid for it.
