So we just had a discussion about cleaning up our decals and I've become a bit confused on what is required and what is not. So looking at RVA's website, they show the decal package and it does not include the Maxxis sticker, but the BCCR shows the Maxxis sticker. Is the Maxxis sticker required to be on the car?
I have been asked on my message board by fellow MR2 racers how I make the decals on my car. It is actually quite easy, and it is fun. There is no need for a plotter, many will make it sound like you have to have one to do complicated decals. But it is not. You easily make multi-color decals by layering. My window topper / sunshade is yellow and blue. This was most difficult as it wrinkled a bit as I laid it out on the window. I used a heat gun as it was laid on the window. My 11 year old son helped, having an adult would have been better. But you can't tell from far away. I have a large self healing cutting mat used for cutting so I don't leave marks on the counter, plus it helps save the exacto blade. I use metal rulers for straight lines. I also print the numbers onto Super B sized paper, (13x19). I get vinyl from resellers on ebay. I tape the image down and just lightly cut it out. Numbers I cut all the way through. But more detailed decals I just cut the vinyl and not the backing paper. Once I have removed the un-needed vinyl sections I use blue painters tape to remove the decal and place it on the car. If you don't have a 13x19 printer, you can print multiple sheets using your laser or inkjet, put a 1/2" overlap on the print job and then just lay it out on your vinyl holding it down with tape. I like these blades. />http://www.xacto.com/products/cutting-solutions/blades/classic-blades/11-Blade-Classic-Fine-Point.aspx I like cutting mats from Alvin. />http://www.cutting-mats.net/self-healing-green.html You can also get proper transfer tape from eBay sellers as well. I keep looking at them, but just used 3" wide blue painters tape. I hope this helps.
