Icon6 Got my blackout decals installed!

got my overlays and bed decals in the mail yesterday, so i took this afternoon to install them.

sorry i only have two pics... my camera is past being on it's last leg. it won't turn on or off anymore... i have to plea with it. and when it does turn on... it sounds like i'm starting a 2 cycle bike... it's making all kinds of noises... with the amount of time it took to get these two pics, i could have hand drawn them, lol.

on to the pics.. here's the FX4 decals before and after..

AFTER:

you can see the black ford emblem on the tailgate in the second pic... i forgot to get a good one of it... and a good one of the front. oh well. as i said, my camera is basically shot. this weekend i may be buying a new one. the new FX4 decals are actually pretty sharp looking, unlike the crappy pic my awesome dieing camera took, lol.







EDIT: i hope Justin (Reuber) appreciates the sweet Eagles decal on the rear window, lol.

In the second picture, is your driveway really sloped or is the road sloped? The angle you took it at looks like the road is at like a 70 degree angle lol

Those decals look good. Not in your face but when you look close, you notice them.

my driveway is steep, lol.

when we first moved in... it was even steeper. my dad had an old station wagon at the time. the first time he tried to pull into the garage, the station wagon caught the ground in the center and couldn't pull into the garage, lol... my dad called the developer and had them come back, rip out the garage floor, and then lower it 8 inches, lol. fortunately for me, i have a garage that is 8 inches taller than everyone elses in the neighborhood.

lol.. a lot of cars can't make it... my mom's honda scrapes its lower valance on the apron of the driveway, so does the white intrepid you see in the background... actually... out of the 6 or 7 cars we own, my truck is the only thing that doesn't scrape anything while pulling into the driveway, lol.
