Our effort for this year is nearly ready.

That is fantastic! When you have finished, mind if I share a photo on our work page (with any credits/links you want of course), our customers and followers will love that.

Haven't made my mind up 100%, but very tempted to do something along the lines of Bob Tullius' Group 44 car (although I'm keeping my windscreen hehe)

Hi guys,
Ive been going to Le Mans for the past few years and always felt left out with a stickerless car so I was thinking to grab some off stickered up for le mans but not sure what colour stickers to go for with my car,
what you would you guys do with this sticker-wise?? would appreciate advice!
Two ideas.... taking some of the stripes from the theme below I.e. the red, gold and yellow?


Or a red theme as per this with an endurance theme & some reference to the number of times it beat the Porsche LMP1 at LM24?


PS Mine is due some minor paintwork hopefully in the next 2 weeks (on the areas I won't be applying stickers BTW) & so I'll probably not sticker it fully until after, but it depends whether I can stop myself opening the Stickers4 package that arrived a couple of days ago scratchchin
My theme this year is the red theme, going on my A6

Yeh of course that's fine, the more people that see it the better!

Finished this last weekend, and the boxter last night. (Boxter Pics tomorrow)


The only problem being I'm running short of space on the Wheelie bin for the recycled stickers!

Davidd - from experience last year, the side ones are worse than doing the roof/bonnet and l found it needed 3 of us to apply them and that the panel needed plenty of water on it to help squeeze the air bubbles out - the professionals make it look easy, though it's no where near as satisfying if they apply them when your talking to a fellow camper about the fun you had putting them on (especially if you'd had a few beers before you started the stickerage! You also need to make sure that the car is on a flat surface and that you've a suitable point of reference /straight line to work to so you don't apply them "on the wonk".

Thanks for that. I was going to use the bottom of the door as a guide. Dan at stickeredup has made us some custom ones with three stripes. He recommends we use the cut graphics method as detailed on the website. No water... no room for error !

We cheated - and used one the wife's work contacts! Rick @ Vinyl Creations in Sittingbourne did them for us. (And the base stripes on the 911 as well). www.vinylcreations.co.uk

And a final bit of fettling back at home just to finish it off.

And then he realised that allowing his two boys to pick the name sticker/flags down the side was a mistake, as for a windup one of them went with the Gay Pride flag! smile
