My Free 3M Mod

Nothing much to see here but a couple pics...

This is my decal mod, I cut my nickname (but spelled out completely) in reflective 3M vinyl (the stuff they use on police cars, school buses etc...)

The font I used was BankGothic - since I couldnt find out what font is used for the Rubicon decal. The letters are 1.5" tall and there is a slight amount of letter spacing total length is about 19"

Anyway here are some night and day pics:




note the reflection of the euphoria -vs- the sahara logo etc

The vinyl used is just called 3M Reflective Vinyl

Time for a shameless plug...

You can get em made easy at your local Signs Shop (this link will take you to Sign-A-Rama a worldwide sign company)

They cost a little bit more then standard decals, since its made from reflective material.... I got it free only because I work there. But still it shouldnt be expensive.

Reflective vinyl comes in different colors like silver, gold, white, yellow, etc...

I used to do that stuff for a living too. It will depend greatly on where you go as to how much they will charge you. I just simply wanted my windshield decal cut out for me. I had the thing already designed in a form that "I know" their computer could read and said I would weed, mask, and install it myself and they still wanted to charge me $70. I walked out and went to the 2nd place that I worked at for a while and they charged me $20 for 5 of them, plus they weeded, and masked them for me.

Some People...

I do like the reflective though. I used to have a chevy logo that you really couldn't even see on the back window of my Monte "had 5% tint" and the vinyl was black but reflected white. When lights hit it it would light up clear as day. Looked sweet.

Big rottie in the car with you? If so I had a feeling that was you I made it at our training school... I work for the corporate offices. But any sign-a-rama could make it for you.

Yeah he's my car arlarm. Unfortunately he's just a big sweetie the only time he gets aggressive is when he thinks someone is hurting me.

Just an observation your Jeep is still just a little to clean, but it does look very good.

I am still a little nervous about putting it through the ringer yet...
I love how she sparkles... when she is all clean.
