That radiator top plate is nice. Did you make it?

I saw one of Corky's yesterday. Yuck! Didn't fit right and the holes weren't cut out right.

Everyone make sure to use some sort of degreaser before you stick them to get any oils or waxes off and they will be fine. I had one that the compressor outlet pulled up on on the passenger quarter window and looks a little funny, but other than that no problems.

Yep, made it out of textured ABS plastic that we use to make machine guarding at work with.

I really don't have the time to make any more. I have more projects now than I know what to do with. I would have got this one, but I am a cheap bastard and made my own and saved the $45. but thanks for the compliments.

You can get a sheet of textured ABS at mcmaster for ~20 bucks.
www.mcmaster.com item 87265K21 is 12x24 if that's big enough (for two?)

tapplastics.com also has it

got mine today. haven't had a chance to stick them on anything though.

i do have comments for philip though:

1. why is the usps envelope inside-out?
2. the "nozzle" of the turbo needs to be "unioned" with the turbo so the cutter doesn't slice it off. overlapping shapes in cutter art is bad. who drew that? BRAINY?
3. I have stickers!!! woot!

3.

it should be alright, you drew in some weird little triangles to blend the edge and on most of them I removed it so it's square.

Yep that is the problem I had, my nozzle fell off :gay: and I had to manually stick it back on. Looks a little goofy now.

on the O where the top points out to the right. there's that last little section that's bigger (like where you clamp the hose on) that's basically a rectangle that overlaps the adjacent shape. the cutter will cut all edges even if they are the same color.

i was gonna d/l the artwork from teh stickers thread but ... um...

The compressor outlet part is cut seperate from the "O" and came off with the transfer tape before I realized it. I think in your file those could easily be connected to the "O" since there is no space between them. I think that is what y8s is saying too. Mine happened on the passenger window. I didn't post a picture because I figured I was the only retard that screwed mine up. :gay:
