    I just stopped by the sign company today and got these proofs picked up.

    They designed the logo for free.

    As far as the prices go:

    Window Lettering: $35.00
    Decals: $40.00 for the set
    Installed: $67.00

    Total: $142.00 +tax

    Me personally, I like em. They're nice and simple, put professional looking. I'm not a big fan of the rectangle door decals but this is my alternative until I can get a full wrap for my truck.($1500-$2000)

    Any input before I give the go-ahead?

    I think they look good, and the price is reasonable, but not sure on the installing price, You could do this.

    I was thinking that too, but I really want it to be done right the first time. When I go off doing stuff like this I always get stuff slanted a little bit :D

    It'll take em about an hour to put it all on, meanwhile, I'll treat my girlfriend and I to lunch next door or something.

    Thanks a lot for the input.

    Oh yeh. And as far as the truck color goes. Do you guys think the decals will look alright on my truck?

    Back window is tinted pretty good so I think the lettering is fine.

    Sorry, the sun was in my eye when I took these:

    I'd definitely think about installing yourself. In high school we sold decals at football games for our STLP program, and I installed most of the decals on cars myself. I've done my fair share of messing up, but it's worth it. I'll be ordering my own decals soon for my truck. But one thing is for sure, it won't look as nice as your truck! Mine's a beater to re-open with.

    Just my .02!

    You can use a spray bottle with water and a small amount of dish soap. spray it over the area, put the stickers on, position where you want it, then use a putty knife to scrape the soap out from behind the stickers.
