Fender decals

I know pixeldecals.com is a good site, but is there another site that anyone has tried? Just for more options. I'm really thinking about the jurassic park decal. But another question is, light grey, dark grey, or the silver metallic color. I want it to match up to my wrangler decal as close as possible.

I designed mine on the computer and took it to a local decal shop and he did it pretty cheap, $5 and he did it while I waited. Most will even take a picture you want and add the text and font to your liking.

I don't know why I didn't think about the local places. We have two here in town but I've never even stepped foot in the their door.
I just spent some pretty good money on a lift and some new rubber, but I still want to do something to the jk. I just have to keep it fairly low cost to keep the wife from flipping out ;-)

That simple? It just came right off? Did you have to wax the area after you did it?

Well wouldn't call it that simple. Actaully found that after you got a good edge started the rest pulled off the glue better if it was cold. There was glue residue. I tried Goo Away but not really very good. Did soften a little but basically rubbing off the glue with the thumb worked best. And yes there was a dull look after it was off and a good wax shined it up nice like it was never there. Took about 20 minutes to get both off including the left on glue

I took my stock decals off today and the hair dryer trick worked well. The goo gone only made a mess with the glue when I used a rag. So I sprayed some on and used a credit card. All the glue wiped right off instantly!

Best use for a credit card yet!
