Got AutoTrimDesign gill decals w/pics

Got the gill decals I ordered from autotrim. Chose the Side Vent Highlight Decal Kit 1 here

Pictures of the kit are below; whole kit then a macro closeup. Round shadow on the macro is from the camera lens due to light being overhead.

This should help those trying to decide.

These are by far the best side vent designed vinyls I have seen. They look more like natural lighting than a piece of electrical tape stuck in the gills.

NICE!

I beg to differ; I was not aware that the graphic was made up of different sized blocks, like how a comic book picture is made. I thought it was a solid gradient color from dark to light. Some may not like this so I posted them like this so folks can judge before ordering.

While I see your point, this will officially be the worst thread ever without pics of them installed!

on the company website they show them installed on a red camaro.... The guy doesn't have his car yet, what do you want him to do?


Well regardless, I appreciate your post showing the product close up. Definitely looks like quality. This is something that will look GREAT on silver for sure and unless you are staring at it from supper up close you wont even see the dot matrix effect from printing.

putting on vinyls is VERY easy. You mix up the 'the special adhesive water mix' and put it in a spray bottle. Clean the surface of the car. Remove a sticker and heavily spray it with the mix. Then heavily spray the area of the car put the vinyl on and just glide it around the surface till it is on the right spot. Then take you little no scratch blade thing and drag it accross the vinyl to push all the water out from under it. Heat the vinyl with a hair dryer for a couple of seconds and your done...

If you let the car sit out in the sun for a a couple of hours and get real hot you don't even need to use a hair dryer.

I know it is probably an aesthetics thing on the production vs. concept but they really should have these decals on the trailing edge instead of the leading edge.

Your PS of them looks good, rolnslo, bit I think the AutoTrim look is a tad bit better, and I think yours might be tricky to do.

My predicament too. How do you shade black? I believe either silver or charcoal would be best, but like you, Gazinya, I'd like to see pics.

So where are the F'ing pics? Your luck with threads is about as good as mine!!! Well, I for one appreciate the detailed pics in advance of buying them, and actually thought to check the mfr.'s site for pics of them installed, but JDBeck23 did the work for me, and the....less energetic. I think the facsimile concept looks very real. Thanks, Zombie!

I agree maybe a slight re-design would fix this

That is actually not a PS, that is a picture of the original Bumblebee from Transformers, in other words, that is the Concept car with the side vents actually open.

I love the fact that we have all gotten so use to the production car, and aftermarket decals that we can't even differentiate the concept from a Photoshop. to GM

Shade from clear to black, front to back. When someone makes a set that gives the illusion of working vents, I'll buy. You might have to go with different shading for different color cars. Mine's SIM.
