It was originally only going to have one dart on the back. Then when Andrew sent a few (including two red), I decided to do the front and rear. I didn't want to over-do it, but the other decals really screamed to be used. From the side, it'* pretty subtle. But from the front and back, it really gets it'* point across, and matches the green/gold theme of at least ONE of my cars quite well.

I've considered the hood. I'm quite good with paint and body work. I also need to repaint (and blend) part of the front and rear bumper covers. The problem for me is WHERE to paint. Yesterday was easy. It was fairly warm and had just rained, so the air was clean. Nothing blowing around.

I wish now I'd done a couple more coats of clear after the decals. 5 coats still left a tiny edge you can almost see.

Spank you very much, Sir.

For a rush one-day job, it did turn out quite nice. It'* even nicer now that I've lightly buffed it out.
