Default How can I decide! It's making my head hurt.

OK. Now that I have 949 Racing, BEGI, Miataturbo.net and FM stickers. What do I do? Which to I use? Where do I put them?

All are nice and small. All are clean looking. All are companies I like. I can eliminate FM pretty easily as they only contributed frame rails to the car. Beyond that?

Which sticker will make my car faster? Make me a happier person and more satisfied? Get my wife in the mood? Help me lose weight? Eliminate the national debt? etc.

It's these little details in life that can cause me to lose hours of productive time. Damn stickers. Damn all the stickers.

You must be doing something wrong.

I've never had to use a sticker to get your wife in the mood.

Only way to get accurate numbers is to dyno it with different stickers and see what works. It's a black art.

Under hood and roll bar is what I was leaning toward too. Not a sticker guy at all either. I thought it was funny in the last couple weeks I got stickers from all these places though. I'm also leaning toward my file cabinet at work instead of the car. Hate to waste perfectly good vinyl!

Deliverator, you obviously don't know my wife. You did see the picture of my dinner she cooked the other night right?

I have a big baggie in my parts bin full of all the stickers I have.

one thing you can do that doesn't ***** up your car is to put them on the roll away tool box. I have a huge begi sticker on mine.

Same here. Pit boxes at the hanger (work), and the garage fridge and tool boxes.

No use futzing up the car for the simple sake of advertising a company that made you pay full pop for their parts. For anybody that cares they already know what the parts are anyways.

Now if for instance if made a set of CF door panels for someone, I could ask they run a small sticker on the car somewhere, or just make a set with the stickers under the gelcoat for the return of a much cheaper price (advertising fee basically). Personally I dont care for little decals anywhere on my cars everywhere.

Although I used to have a few stickers on other cars that read:

"Warning: Insanity has replaced reason in the design and construction of this vehicle"

and

"Warning: Vehicle may roll over and/or explode at any given time"

Funny thing about the last one is when I went to insure the car, the agent almost cried laughing and stated that no passenger could ever sue me. Apparenty it was good enough to be a legal disclaimer since it was in plain sight

I've got a black mt.net sticker on my passenger quarter-winow... very stealth unless you're the guy next to me and then it's staring you in the face... taunting you.

Wait, I sold that car. Crap... really need to get another one.
