Need more ghetto golds for the 95 still.

And I don't have the 'bonneville SE' on my door trim. Hmmmm......

I think that golden accents on dark big cars will give u the expensive looking extra.

Yeah, cept one of the letters already came off, so now my drivers door is B NNEVILLE SE. Damn. E-mailed the guy I got it from, said he doesn't have any more. Can't get in touch with the company that made it. They changed phone numbers, but apparenly are still in business somewhere in IL. Interenet searches have lead me nowhere.

Worst case scenario, you could make it say SLE

Maybe replace that missing letter with gold paint?

Did you clean the area really well before applying the decals?

It may been too cold when you put the stuff on

Get some rigid foam or plastic the same thickness, and paint it gold after you cut the letter shape.

A little creativity at the craft store can solve this. Ask for help and have an employee come look at your car to see what you're up to.

I cleaned it, but didn't give the adhesive time to thoroughly cure before sticking back out in the cold driveway. Plus the adhesive is like 8 years old so it'* not top notch. Some of the gold molding is already coming off too, so I'm going to heat the hell out of that and use plenty of adhesive like super or gorilla glue. I rushed the project and now I'm paying for it, I wish I had waited till spring. That'* why I need to get my hands on another kit

patience is a virtue, being anxious just might hurt you.
