decals

Hey guys!

Have any of you bought decals from vinyl status? Their website is http://vinylstatus.com..

I'm about to buy like 20 decals from them to sticker bomb my rear windshield. I saw on their instagram people say the do really good work...

I also want to get a custom banner from them but I'm not sure what.. Any ideas?

Personally I dont want to cop bait. Vinyls make your car look like a race car and most officers will assume you are driving like a race car driver on the street.

Most competition drivers post stickers because their sponsors require them to "represent" so that the sponsor gets an advertising ROI. If you are stickering your car then you are providing free advertising for those companies. In some cases I feel strongly enough to share with the world that I support a company and their views but in most cases I don't trust companies enough to wear their logo 24/7.

That said I love the look of vinyls on the sides of my tool box, Just got a nice one from Mechanics Gloves and its sitting on the lower left of my gladiator tool case. Next to my My Cobb, Kartboys, Whitelines Magpul and Surefire Logos.

To each his own but Its not my style...

Not every sticker is a product logo. He could be buying herrafrush and JDM AF stickers too.

Does anyone else wish they were sponsored by "panty droppers"?!

...My stickers usually go on the snowboard or the toolbox.

I only have one decal on my rear windshield. it is a sticker sporting my local tuner. took my other stickers off. but i looked at that vinyl website. the "has your vtec kicked in yet?" sticker is effing hilarious.

I reserved the right rear window for stickers. But only from parts I have,venders I use and organizations I'm a member of.

Does that make me a bad person?

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

^Ricer :P


I have a SPT sticker on the front of my car under the license plate delete, its been there forever, i'm just too lazy to take it off, all those little letters "subaru performance tuning" are going to be a pain to peel. Then I have a newer Symmetrical AWD sticker over the stock one under the third taillight on the rear window. The old one is inside the glass and impossible to get to, and the el paso sun has faded it badly, so I got an exterior one almost identical and put it over the top of it. I don't really count that one though.

And finally I have a Fatal girl sticker on my lower left rear windshield.




I used to have a bunch of dumb decals angled down the left side "AWDSOME" "HELLABROKE" ect..., took them off after a week, it was too much for me. I was also on stock wheels, few minor mods, it felt wrong haha. Maybe once I get my next big round of mods I'll put them back on to troll people.


Also had a scoobies for boobies decal for a while in cherry blossom red, might get another one actually. I love that they are using subaru's to raise money for a good cause.
