    I need some flame decals for my latest custom, and while reprolabels does awesome work, I was wondering if pinecar rub on decals would work??
    Does anyone know? Anyone tried this before?

    If it was a smooth surface, it should work.

    I'm not sure about sealing them though, as they can scratchoff somewhat easy.

    well, it's a painted surface, and pretty smooth. As for sealing it, wouldn't clear coat work?

    my personal fav is future but you pick your poision your comfi with any should be fine. what i meant by smooth is it may be hard to get it to go into panel lines or cover rivets

    I use dry transfers all the time. I light coat of any clear coat is fine over them.

    Pine cars work extremely well on TF's. They adhere the best to Gloss Coats though. Either from the Gloss Paint, or after a sealer or spot coating with Finish. They look great once applied.
