I've always admired Pondhopper's decal graphics, including the door side mountain ones. I have contemplated putting an "Arches and Canyonlands" motif (being from Utah) to my Kl in a similar fashion. I concluded however, that since I have a granite crystal coloring, that the concept just would not work with an inability to create enough contrast for the effect.

Maybe so

I'm not judging.

Just added the lights, and yes I miss spelled it. Long week at work spilling over. Corrections to be made.

I would offer a few points of constructive criticism, but if it's already affixed, it's a moot point. I'll keep those to myself to not have you second guessing yourself. If you like it, that's what matters.

Oh ok, in that case, here's my honest opinion...

1. I think it's a little too busy. Your 'mural' decal is plenty enough in my opinion. With your new sticker it just looks overdone.

2. The location. If you must add the decal, I think it would look better on the liftgate--a side where you don't already have so much going on. But if you MUST put it on the side, I would move it to where it's centered over the front fender, and put it directly above the fender (rather than a few inches above). Your main decal is centered between the two wheelwells, it looks 'off' to have your other one not centered, at least for a sticker of that size.

3. Maybe it's just the photoshop render, but your sticker looks very pixelated in comparison to your main decal. It looks incongruous.

Sorry if I'm flattening your tires here. Just giving you some honest feedback. You have a great looking rig, and this is my input on how I think you can help it, or steer clear of hurting it.

Grey looks nicer than black. It looks good!

You both agree with the wife so a rework is still being completed (Finance officer must keep them happy)
