Where to find Graphics/DecalsWhere to find Graphics/Decals
Just found this website, they have stuff for Aspens, Warlocks, Magnums and even the normal stuff. Don't know if any one has used them before. Just wanted to pass it on.
And similar topic, if You need any custom decals made, I have recently purchased from both www.decalzone.com and www.edecals.com and had fast shipping and excellent products from both..... Just thought I'd pass this along...
Thanks for the info but I will stick with time and tested performance car graphics that attend all major mopar shows and are moparts board members recommended WWW.PERFORMANCECARGRAPHICS.COM

I heard on here that soapy water works good till you have them where you want them to be then sqeege them out.
acualy the good people at performance car graphics told me that i should use window cleaner, wasnt it you that sent me the link for them and if it was why didnt you buy from them, there cheaper and there customer service is fantastic to the point that they told me i should call no matter how silly of a question i had!
A sudsy mixture of dish soap and water will work for you. I do a lot of lettering and vinyl graphics, use soap and water for small stuff but prefer application fluid for larger pieces. Most sign shops will probably have some. It does not dry as fast as soap and water. The trick is to keep the surface slick so you can slide the decal into position. Use a rubber squeege to work out mixture and air bubbles. Be carefull of letter edges. Once you have most of the water out you can peel off the backing paper, slowly and at a 45 degree angle pulling down. I usually use blue painters tape as a guid when applying the decal. Hope this helps.
Best stuff for getting sticker adhesive off of paint?
Had to pull a bunch of stickers off the project car. What's some good stuff for getting that sticky residue off of paint.
I would suggest rubbing alcohol. It is pretty easy on things and cuts adhesives
We used to use Naptha at trade shows on plexiglass, don't know what it would do to paint though.
Lighter fluid works great and won't hurt the paint.
i use ppg dx-330 can be found at automotive paint supply stores. will not hurt the paint!
3M adhesive remover has always worked well for me.
I removed a ton of stickers from my car using a product called sticker shock. I think I got it at autozone or advanced auto.
Brake Cleaner works too.
Laquer thinner to remove from paint but probably not the lexan.
I vote for the 3M citric cleaner as the best stuff and it will not hurt the paint.
I've cleaned lexan with laquer thinner, enamel reducer, & parts cleaners & nothing I've used hurt it. I'd probably try brake cleaner first.
Bug and tar remover or mineral spirits.
bbq lighter fluid
Try straight amonia
It's called Goop Off and works awesome.
WD-40. Used to remove stickers from snowmobile hoods and it takes the glue off easily.
Who had the repop door sticker pic?
Who had the drivers door Vin. sticker made. Do you have a link or phone number? I need to check it out before I tear mine off.
PERFORMANCE CAR GRAPHICS
Place to purchase stripes?
I need information on the best place to buy stripes
not a charger
Year One sells lots of stripe kits. Also, PhoenixGraphics ( www.phoenixgraphics.com ) has nice stuff, too. We just bought their stencil kit for the painted stripes on my buddy's 71 Olds W-30 rag, and the kit is really well done.
Josh's musclecar parts. Click on his ad at the bottom of the screen. Very nice stuff.
I have always got mine from Performance car graphics in florida. Excellant product and customer service.
If you want "correctly" made stripes of excellent quality - Performance Car Graphics. Plus, it's the only place that'll make you a partial stripe if you need it!
Performance car graphics I wouldn't deal with anyone else!
i also say performance car graf.
If you want the best ......
I got my tail stripe from Josh's Muscle car parts. He was the cheapest I saw it for. Also I think he is an advertiser here.
Performance Car Graphics in Florida...Without a doubt, the best customer service and great product and good prices.
Joe, If PCG has what your looking for go with them.I had to get "Hang 10" decals and the only 2 places that sold them was Year One for around 565.00$ And this this place: http://www.stencilsandstripes.com/ and they use the same supplier as year one..only difference it cost 365.00$ just click on any mopar link,they have more makes than they list.
