playing with the vinyl cutter - no more silver decals

Finally got around to doing my decals in black
wanted to do something a little more subtle, figured while I was at it, I would un-clutter the lower fender
Went ahead and used the new text design JKO logo, ditched the wrangler and unlimited in favor of the old school "JEEP" logo and added props for Phil since he helped me build it

Phil - I hope ya don't mind your company name on my heap!

Stripped the silver barb wire pin striping - may redo it in black, may not.
swapped out the old VENOM decals from the nitrous company and put on some custom black script pieces.
The skulls were just something I had made awhile back playing with the cutter.
I'll get a pic of the big Cobra on the hood later
Also needed to redo the rubicon decals since I chopped the hood for the snorkel - it has said "RUB" for awhile now
One side is done, the other is still silver and I havent gotten around to doing the door hinges in black bedliner yet, but it's on the list.

Anyway, here's a few pics and yeah, it's filthy.

thanks guys

the smiley on the headlight is sweet!
I started to do that with black skulls like whats on the side by the JEEP but I was afraid they'd melt from the headlights, let me know hoe those hold up!
I got it easy, Delta headlights are flat instead of domed

If you are JKFredO then it was you!!! I had them made for you when you posted the question. PM me your add and I will send them over. No charge.... just have a buddy with a sticker cutter and asked if he would make me a set. Just test them out and let me know if they work ok.

I am going to make a set of the crosshairs in black to put on mine...

edit - I sent you a PM on the other forum about sending these to you....

The one that we used was a Stika made by Roland. It was about $300.... the price goes up from there. It will do up to an 8" sticker with unlimited length... or as long as the roll. The Roland works nice and is easy to use.
