Default New Overlays: Why not Ho it up??!!

Hi Everyone,
After some new overlays (Thanks Ryan, Flaming Decals!) I decided a lunch-hour photo opp. was needed.

Please excuse the car, it'* not 100% clean, hopefully you like!

Cheers,
Adam

Oh, Next thing on the list is to get my back bumper fixed up. Has a pretty nasty crack in it. :(

Hope you liked my mini-Ho Age!

Cheers,
Adam

did you replace them as well? it looks like you had a chunk missing as well as the * being crooked.

Looks great though

Hi Jim,
Forgot to mention the fact a donor car from the scrap yard was kind enough to supply a couple badges to replace the really rough ones on my car.

I then spray painted the whole emblem gold, then set the overlay. Ryan made red i '* so I could immitate the originals. Then some clear coat, and new double sided tape from a GM dealer (peel off the old first!!)

I guess I didn't mention it, as I knew the tread would then balance on a Detailing and Appearance appropriate post.

Thanks, by the way!
Adam

Nice job on the overlays Adam. Now come over and help Darren and I wire up his angel eye fogs maybe this sunday

Is that the canal or the welland river in your backdrop?

Looks Sweet....My guess is Chippewa Creek between the end of Dorchester and Stanley? Always good for pics.

Bingo!
That is the exact spot. I work just down the street from there!

Good guess!
