    yeah - I think anything on the front of a black one will look tacky. It's one thing to 'create' space - but 'adding' things to it is just nasty. The sides look nice though. Not too obnoxious.

    yeah - painting the sides would be silly. You'd have to go vinyl - I was only thinking of painting the front as I'll be doing the rest of the bar anyway - but if I decide to do the whole thing, it will ALL be vinyl.

    a lot - you don't have to re-clear the whole section for starters. You just stick it on.

    You'd probably be looking at around 100 buck a stripe - depending on how much work needed to go into making the design fit the curves - it's one thing to doctor an image like this, but another completely to make a 2D shape wrap so it looks right when stuck to a 3D object. My old man is a graphic designer and has designed whole car wraps for a few companies as well as simpler gear for the sides of vans, cement trucks, semi-trailer cabs and such - there's more work going into that than most people recognise. But a narrow stripe that follows a crease line shouldn't be too difficult.

    yep - that will be including design work. Wouldn't be that much with a template already done.

    the wheels make all the difference with this one! the pointy lines of the decal go very well with the pointy lines of the wheels. Suit perfectly.

    I actually really like those wheels on a black ute. Not sure they'd look too flash on a colour though.
