I'm glad you like it! I drew a lot of inspiration from your Jeep. But I decided I could not be authentic enough to the WWII theme and decided to change it up a bit. Still wanted to keep a lot of WWII elements though.

Went reflective black for the decals, and as I am Canadian with a global bent. I went with United Nations Canadian forces(UNCF). Little concerned that it looks too much like I am collecting for UNICEF, but oh well, it will do for now.

Again, I am really glad you like it! I did the 20 for reconnaissance and -S like you because I liked it so much. I found out that Canadian forces in Normandy also used the invasion star. Though apparently they would skew it a bit to differentiate themselves.

I hope it is not too muddled. And not disrespectful in any way...

Just to trow in an update, I'm putting about 85% of the decals on today
Finally decided to look a bit like spring here in PA and I can wait no more. All the stars are going on today, then I'm going to order up my custom numbers, flags, and thinking of a Gasden flag under the American flag. (I'll try to link a picture for opinions)

As the USMC has heritage in my family, and I plan on joining after my last year of college (I'm now a junior) I think I'm gonna go with that, however I have friends and family in the Corps and the Army so I may go with the USA decals to cover support for all parties.

I'll try to get the first picks up when I'm done but I'm short on time to get to work today and the jeeps goin in for rims, tires, and its lift in two days.

Alright! Finally got the Jeep back from its fitting. Unfortunately, I didn't get enough time to put the registration numbers on and I am still short of my flags, I just didn't have enough time this weekend. I'll post the picks of those as well as the "Don't Tread On Me" sticker once I find the time and the weather allows. Hope you like how it is so far, and sorry it took so long to do from the start of this thread!

P.S. Please excuse the one with my mom in the car, I just got it back from 4 wheel drive hardware when I took it, and she was too impatient to go to the store for dinner to let me take a clean pic

Got the last big ones on. Unfortunately the flag and the Gadsden snake I got aren't big enough they look underwhelming. What flag size did everyone else end up using?

Stencils for lettering of Military jeeps

I have three stencil machines like those used by the military for the lettering on vehicles. The sizes that I have are 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" high. I can make them on card stock for stencils.
You place the stencil at the location you want. Place magnets on them to hold them in place. use a stencil brush or cut off a 1" to a 1 1/2" brush so that the bristles are not super soft. They need to be a little stiff. use very little paint, almost a dry brush and dab on the paint. To clean the stencil use spray carb cleaner and wipe them off. They should last for years.
What I need from you is: size of letter, something that shows how it listed and what it says. Price depends on stencil.

We can also make special stencils in the same sizes.

New to me JKU 2013

USMC 2002-2007 Looking for ways add to the feel of my new baby. I want it to be closer to the classic military feel.

I just don't want it to be totally authentic. Just think post apocalyptic Zombie outbreak with Military overtones. I'll spray paint fenders and bumpers all day but not the Commando green paint.

Any tips, pics, or fonts that I can use and not offend anyone?

First, I'd like to say thank you for your service.

Well, I kind of went with a WWII/Cold War/Zombie apocalypse theme on mine

I did a different twist to the military theme to honor my dad.

Looks great

That's the way mine started but things kind of got added on over time.
