    So I'm going to get a batch of G/S tank decals made up. I have seen a few that are the wrong size, colours don't really match, poor quality etc etc. I haven't put this in the vendors as I wanted to gauge interest before getting them made up. I'm just wondering who would be interested in a set of high quality tank decals covered with an extra layer or clear protective coating, in the (1) Blue/blue

    or (2) the blue and red varieties.

    If anyone would be interested post an expression of interest and I'll get some prices etc etc. I'm happy to send anywhere they may be needed, and I tend to travel between NA and Europe frequently so I'll be looking at keeping postage as cheap as possible. Once I know how many people would be potentially interested I'll post up some prices once I can talk order numbers.

    the red R80 G/S stickers show up on ebay, and are nice. The tank decals on ebay I purchased are crap, they were two piece for each side. I had some made up by a sign shop.

    What the hell,
    I've got a small G/S tank I need to repair and repaint so dependent on price and the timing, I'll express interest in a set of both colour combos (can't decide what I would want as I'll be painting the tank a different colour- not sure what colour yet).
    If the price is higher rather than lower I might have to pick only one colour combo. Either way I think I'd be good for one set at least.

    Thanks for all of the posts. As I'm living in the UK postage from Germany is quite cheap but thanks for the offer. The chap who will be making them also does the R80 G/S stickers that go on the body panel under the seat. You may have seen his stuff, google 2wheelhumvee graphics and you will find his site. At the moment he doesn't produce these stickers so I said I'd see if any other parties would be interested to make it worth his time. I want to keep them cheaper than the german website, and these will also have a secondary clear top coat to make them more wear resistant. I@ll let this run for a week or so to get an idea of numbers then I'll get a price up here... I don't intend to make any money on these... just trying to get some top quality decals at a good price for everyone.

    I don't mind at all... I'll post them anywhere. If anyone else wants some I could post them in one go to make things cheaper, then someone down there could distribute them.

    So the decals will cost at about £25 a pair.... or at present that would be about $39.13 US. The decals will be covered in a clear over layer to make them stronger and more wear resistant... just like the fork protectors.

    I'll be flying across the pond early July so could bring a load of them then to post out when I arrive... I'll also price up posting from the UK and let people decide which they would prefer. THose in SA or AUS I'm happy to post when they are made... as I'm not sure when I'll be flying down your way!

    In the coming week, I'll be measuring and making a template (size guide) to pass along so that they will be exactly the same size as the OEMs were. If anyone else has a set of originals and wants to do that then please send me the PDF of something... a technical drawing will do, showing angles and dimensions.

    Once this is done I'll post up on here... have everyone look at it and then get confirmed orders.

    I hope this works for everyone!

    ALl the best.
