Default Decals for my car?

Hey guys I'm looking to make my car a little more noticable, do you think the silver decals from the red RX-7 in the fast and the furious would look good on my car? here are the links:

I don't really like the side decals they had on the RX-7 but i love the way the hood decal looks, thanks for any opinions

it may be more noticeable, but if you aren't running 300hp under there you will be falling under the "rice" category.

i suppose, i thought the term rice was only applicable if it was done in poor taste, thats why i wouldn't do this unless it looked really good. ah well

well i am only one person, but i really don't think that would look too great on your car... maybe you can have someone good with photoshop make a pic for ya so you can see what it would look like first...

I've always thought cars look best when they have a clean design.

Decals, advertisments, stripes, etctera don't improve the look, in my opinion.


Tint is sometimes cool looking.

I also think the under-the-car neon light is really cool, in a haunted-house kind of way.

But! It seems like the car 'kustomz' almost always go too far. It gets funny, sometimes on purpose, but sometimes not.

Basically, if you're trying to impress someone, it ain't gonna work.

Thumbs Up Vinyl workd....

You know I have always been a fan of this design

Not that I'm biased or anything...

No one likes this design, but everyone that saw it in person loved it.

Do what you want and if it doesn't work for you, just take it off later. You are driving it and while not everyne likes tattoos, there are people with them everywhere.

I just saw a dodge Viper today with the same decals (or ones that looked just like them). Makes me think.. the car in the movie looked like a viper-wannabe. My point? That it is up to you. I don't want to be a wannabe, myself. I drive a 74 chrome bumper MGB and the Saturns belong to my kids. If it was me, I'd take a good long look at my car, decide to keep or sell it, then be happy with it or change it. But I would not look for some other car that I want it to look like. I'd make it original, mine. That's me and its what I am happy with.

Adam,

Where did you get the pic of the saturn with the saturn decal on the side? That's EXACTLY what I've been looking for to put on my 2001 white SC2. Do you know who made this decal or where I can order one? I've been wondering how it would look and you have answered my prayers!

Thanks,

Jason

2007 SKY
1997 SC2
Default You mean this?



You mean that?

I designed and installed it. I can design and cut out something 'like' this for anyone for $400. The owner of the vehicle and the sponsoring company wont allow this exact design, but I can make something like it.

The problem is that it's very difficult to install and should only be attenpted by a pro. This isn't a window banner. I would expect someone to charge around $100 to install it.
