I looked at the Punisher decal but figured at close to 50, I have no business claiming to others that I am some kind of punisher. Yeah I liked the graphic novel and movies but for Christ'sasake I was a medic so I will leave my factory vinyl Dracula on but I have Veteran Combat Medic plate covers. I thinks that's enough for now. No need to cause any antagonism. I have my own sh*t to deal with. Just my $0.02.

I'm just looking at something simple, just to dress up the black hood decal on the T-Hawk with something in the red. With the Jeep being Granite, the decal doesn't stand out that much so just wanted to make it "pop" a little. I'm in my 50's as well so I'm sure not going to plaster flames or a playboy bunny all over it....hehe.

Ok, I've decided I'm going to bit the bullet and get one of these put on in the spring. Us girly girls have to decorate everything don't ya know...lol. It would be in the red colour and stay within the size of the existing hood decal.

I've nailed it down to 6 choices and would appreciate any feedback ya'll might have.

@ArcticLyn I guess my two cents would be it depends on who you have doing it and where you're getting it done from. I used to work in a print shop a while back and I've done things like ambulances, police cars, church buses, semi trucks, etc. I've done all kinds of crazy stuff. Race cars! I have had dirt track car drivers bring me their BEAT UP side wall or quarter panel that still has my stickers on it. They were scratched, but they were still on there. If you talk to a professional sign shop, they will work with you and can customize anything you can think up and put in their computer CAD system. Our shop had a huge easel-type cutting printer that would zip back and forth cutting out whatever diagram you programmed into it. It's safe to say that if it's installed properly, you'll be safe knowing they're not going to come off any time soon unless you wanted them to.

I look at it as a Hood Decal Rorschach test.

Here's what I get ...

1. Animated Wife from Pink Floyd The Wall
2. An Ape with Antlers or The Grinch
3. The Grinch
4. A mad cat with transformer headgear
5. Alien
6. John Lovitz with horn arms
