    Hi gang,


    I decided to order a custom set of the BOSS Grimlock stickers from our good friends at Reprolabels.

    I had to strip the blue stripes from Wheeljack, and that was much more time consuming than I had thought. I'll have blue nails for a week :D 

    I also kinda wrecked the roof, so I'll have to get some tamya gloss white or something.

    Here's what I have so far:

    When the time came to put the stickers, I noticed that the blue part that goes in the middle of wheelajck's hood was transparent on the sheet, so I cut my own piece. You can't really tell :p

    I just LOVE this set. The only thing I might want to add is a roof decal. Maybe I can get Delta and the gang to make one, but I don't know how much that'd cost :p

    Yeah, i thought so too, but I really don't like the ALT plates like Wheeljack's, with the insignia on one side.

    I might get the set of plates reprolabels is selling, there are some pretty cool ones in there.

    It looks great, I like the Mad Doc idea for the license plate. Can't knock the look though, Wheeljack sitting on Dubs!! LOL.

    why didn't you just keep the blue stripes on an omit the center hood piece? the real cars w/ the boss logo have two comp stripes and the side graphics and they look sweet! i think i'm gonna get these for my WJ and request the same color blue as the stripes. but yours looks very nice indeed. i'm jealous! :p
