Awaiting our HPR Mav… was thinking of white lettering and tires with white lettering side showing… I like the white accents on the new Broncos. While I do like it, the all-black trend is getting old, just my subjective opinion. Looking back on 70s trucks there was lots of white- 2-tone paints, rims, etc. looks nice and clean.

Looks great on the red. How do you think it would look on black? Too dark to make a difference?

Thanks for sharing the video with us!

I did both front and tailgate on my F-350, using vinyl. FYI... Windex makes application a total breeze!

I think the polished letters would do better πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
That's how I'm leaning, someone posted the polished silver on black elsewhere and it looked awesome. I don't think the darker letters will contrast enough to pop.

Love the videos so far, keep them coming. The little tips like using mildly soapy water to reposition the letters are pure gold.

BTW the soapy water doesn't affect the adhesive long term?

I used Windex on my F-350 two years ago. They are still as nice as they were then.
Except for the D on my tailgate... Trailer coupler jumped up and hit it last week. :eek:

The Windex lasts more than long enough to get the letters perfect and dries great.

The windex doesn't hurt the paint?
