    These look really good, Matt. As if I haven't said it to you enough already, thank you so much for doing this! I just sent you a PM with some additional things to try based on some comments made by John's wife.

    I'm checking with Jeff about the possibility of a camo colored vinyl being added to the other color choices already available. It won't be for everyone, but I agree that many will want it because of who John was.

    I like the camo, that's looking good. Can you black out the wheel wells, and maybe the front bumper and dif areas also?

    +1, I think if the camo was applied to the body/cage it would look better. Also the area around John is a bit fuzzy, might wanna make those lines cleaner cuz it won't print properly. Nice work on the decal!

    Please keep in mind these are cut vinyl decals. That means that Jeff starts with a solid color. (I'm waiting to hear back on camo as an option.) Having multiple colors on the decals likely isn't possible because they aren't printed.

    Hopefully Jeff will chime in here soon...

    Things are edgy now because I working in PS to do these quickly and all you're seeing is a jpeg....once we decide one what we like, i'll take it into ai and shred some outlines for jeff so they're nice and crisp...

    Jeff may be able to get his hands on some camo vinyl but it would be pricey...another issue with the camo is, it's all camo or none...I know the VJC stickers are printed on 4 color but I'm not sure Jeff has that capability. More than likely we're looking at a 1 color canvas here...

    Hey Dan, I just tried the wheel well cut out, but it's doesn't look like what I thought, makes the rig look like it's floating, i'll keep trying

    the bumper isn't very defined in the picture i'm working with and free hand doesn't look that good, I'm going to try and seclude the winch and see how that comes out

    Looking good guys. Great work, Matt! Camo vinyl is something I've had customers request but I've never been able to find a good source. My major suppliers, Oracal and Arlon don't have such a product because I'm told, it's too expensive to make "printed" vinyl and price it competitively. I find people on ebay selling small sheets but it's expensive and I can't account for the durability. In general, vinyl sold on ebay is the cheap stuff from China and will shrink and crack in a year or so. If someone finds some that they think is a reasonable quality and a good deal, let me know.

    As far as the logo goes, it's in pretty good shape to cut. Only issue I see is the font of the text on the grill of the zuki. If I cut the whole image to 5" x 5" those letters are less than 1/4 inch high. That size isn't an issue, it's the type of the font that has the "grundgy" cut to it. But we can change that if there are no objections, to something with cleaner edges.

    Matt, if you want to shoot that to me in .eps format, or .ai if that's not an option, I can do some test cuts. Thanks for your efforts guys!

    Lol, I thought you might cringe at the font. Kind of what I figured on for the camo. Is there a size we want these in...i'll be rebuilding it today Jeff, it'll look a bit more refined...

    I'm going to suggest a minimum size of 3"x3" and a maximum size not much over 4"x4".

    Unless any objections or requests for change, this is the final.

    That will be handled between Nathaniel and Jeff. They should be printed by then, will be there.
