Well, if you are going with historical accuracy, the Jeeps that rolled off the assembly line in WWII had a 15-inch star on the hood. From 1943 - 1945, the Army painted a white circle around them once it was delivered to the field, increasing the diameter to 20-inches. You may want to cut out a few rough stars from pieces of paper and set them in place to see what looks best for you.
There are a couple of places I'd recommend:
Military Stencils has the 15" stars for $11.50 each and the 20" ones for $ 20.00
Military Graphics has the 15" stars for $19.00 each and the 20" ones for $24.00
They are both right here in the US of A and the prices I listed don't include shipping.

I have a star on my hood and it looks like the common one available, with the circle around it. Anyway, it looks too small so I'm looking to replace it with a star with no circle and just as large, if not larger than the one on the first page of the thread. Anyone know about the size I need?

Thanks to the extra free decals that 10tonvynil sent me, I'm still finding places to put em.
Painted my cb in order to be rid of at least some of the shiny chrome.

I was looking to buy a new JK a couple of years ago and this used one with half doors was on the lot and I fell in love.

Thanks for that, I have seen your other thread:http://www.wranglerforum.com/f31/sarge-my-tribute-to-the-us-army-air-corps-236404.html
Very nice, I am going with exactly same setup except slightly different hood numbers.
Thanks and have a nice Memorial Weekend (what's left of it!!!)

The additional lettering (Tire pressure, Fuel and No Step) are all 1"
The markings on the body are all vinyl stickers and the ones in the wheel wells, fenders and bumpers are all stencils.
I got the 1" lettering (both vinyl and stencil) from a place called Military Stencils (go figure - lol)
|05-26-2013 04:37 PM|
Do you know if yours hood letters/numbers are 2 or 3" tall??
I figured you have a 20" star and I will go with 20 as well, but cannot picture the letters.
Also did you put any starts on hood??
|05-26-2013 04:12 PM|
|05-26-2013 04:11 PM|
|mallaki||also, are these hood letters/numbers 2 or 3" tall??|
|05-26-2013 04:02 PM|
I wonder if its the same quality.
Were you able to choose the letters/numbers in yours??
|05-26-2013 03:50 PM|
You're right, it looks like the prices really shot up.
I just found a place that has better prices and they have the hood numbers too.

I like your setup and I checked the website you provided in your link. However the price is different. The website show now price of $37.00 USMC Military Jeep Decals decal stars restoration Willys M37 M38 - $37.00 : House of Grafx, Your One Stop Vinyl Graphics Shop
Is this what you were discussing in your post or is it something else.
Also, were you able to customize your letters/numbers as again, the website you mentioned does not seem to have that ability.
By the way, your decals looks very nice!!

Got the heat gun ready but no need. It was 44f out and just got back from the store. Silvers peeled right off.
10ton threw in some extras so I finally tossed them on for fun.

|wat3rdog||No time to get them today. Hopefully I can put them on tomorrow.|
