Default Custom window decal...

can add "nice detail" to your PT Cruiser when color-matched to the paint like the one pictured below on my turbo car.




Some high-quality decals can be found at these sites:

Correct... The bottom portion of the decal--"GT"--was custom-made and can be found here: http://www.vinzdecals.com/createdecal.html
I used "Dodger" font.

Gary, what was the size of your GT decal. I'm interested if you put these on the inside of the window or the outside? Thanks.

See what you started Gary? ok, how the heck did you get the color to match your car perfectly? I mean that color is brand new and not easily found in a custom decal, show us more of your tricks Gary, how did you pull that off, ? gary

The size is 2" x 8" and it was placed on the outside of the window. In addition to buying a "high-quality decal" application is very important--make sure the temperature is "right" (above 55 degrees) and the surface of the window is perfectly clean. On windows at least, these decals should last a long time.

[u]It was just plain skill</u>, turbomangt!

Simple--checked some of the sites that sell good quality decals (these are not cheap--mine cost about $10/each) and looked for a close color-match to Seamist Green. Then I printed out the decal font-style I wanted with the specific color, took it out to my car to see how close it matched the paint, and then made my selection. This WORKED for me--the result was a near "perfect match" somewhat like your "Perfect Auto Finish" wouldn't you say, turbomangt?! [8D] Good luck.

YOU ARE AMAZING. I have a place around town called "fast signs" they have all kinds of custom decals and graphics, I might go there first and see what they have based on your ideas Gary
