Yeah, agree.

It better not be going out of fashion as my car is about to look ridiculous!
I think a month is a little too early for people to be driving their dailys around stickered up hehe

I'll be doing mine the day before we go!

Last time I drove, the wife had to take the stickered car to work on the Monday as she uses our "nice" car as her daily as I have a company car. She's a deputy head. The kids at her primary school loved it!!

All of our stickers are ready to go on, I do have a load of business trips to do over the next few weeks, it needs a service and a good clean so I guess I'll do it the weekend before...

I might put the window stickers on sooner though.

slow thread this year. Almost like it has gone out of fashion.
Does seem a bit slow, seems more Classic threads at the moment- have we had a What are you driving to Le Mans thread yet?

Can't go over the top on stickers as quite a lot of PPF but - hopefully keeping stickers on for Classic as well so best to have date official stickers or roundels on black car?

The PistonHeads Le Mans section is slow all round, no countdown clock, no stickers or t-shirt competitions and not "what are you driving to Le Mans"... Plus Miner49er is doing the convoy to the Classic rather than the actual one frown.

It's seems PistonHeads specifc. The Le Mans Facebook groups are teeming with loads of amazing sticker combinations and discussion... Dan at Su4LM said it's their busiest year:

"this has been our busiest year to date, with a lot more custom work as people are getting a little more adventurous – have you seen the brilliant Ford ‘GT’ Galaxy?? Genius!"

It's still 4 weeks until most of us will be going, it's always a bit of a slow burn.
I think part of the issue is that PH does not seem very engaged..

Mine arrived today.
A lot of firsts for me this year, first time going in the wedge and first time stickering the car.
My stickers are fairly basic but ordered on tuesday and arrived today! Just need to wait for the missing squeegee to arrive but hopefully can do them on Sunday

BenJK, you need to sort your wife out, man up and wear the trousers in your relationship *sniggers*,

Incidentally, i bought a head torch today in case we walk to arnage corner this year in the middle of the night :-)

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

Nah, it just th at this thread gets started earlier and earlier every year.

Most people sticker up a week, maybe 2 weeks before (tops). Many the day before. I'm sure some epic schemes are just waiting to be unveiled!

So last year for whatever reason I went with a German fire engine theme:



Can't think of anything for this year though!
