Well when i first bought the st/12, i found a complete set of decals on ebay for around $20. I figured ill just order later. Well that bit me cause now i can't find em. Well i found a website that sells them individually. This Mafia run company wants between $18-60 per decal!!! Apparently this company supports drug use. Well they aren't taking my money...i downloaded each decal to exact size, emailed to a buddy that owns a decal shop and he's printing them all for cost which is bout $15. Those crooks messed up when they didn't copyright their decals online, not that it would stop me anyway. What a rip off....still pi$$ed bout it.....ok im done now....

It's really bad when people try to make a fortune off of a hobby like this. :wallbanging:  We are very initiative and will figure out some other way to do things. Glad you got your decals at a great price. :thumbs:

Glad you got what you needed in the end.  Sounds like JD. The decals they sell are pretty pricey. I think the hood decals for the 300 series are about 35$ each.

I think you showed those guys there is more than one way to skin a cat, or get the decals you wanted.

What we do is a labor of love in my opinion, that shouldn't be a reason to take advantage of us.

Hope this is the low point of your restoration and everything is uphill from here.
