I preferred the purple tbh.. shame you didn't feel the love..

Hope the decals will improve the (imo) overly stark look it currently has.


+1 for the purple, very nice colour, white will look awesome built properly though too

It was going to cost me enough to touch up the purple hence the refresh.

Too stark? Totally agree. Spent most of yesterday researching decal options with gil m. Maybe I should get some opinions. Give me a couple of minutes...

Unfortunately, the purple was no better than icing sugar and a fart in another room would cause it to chip and fall off.

The whit is ok but now it looks a bit too much like my next door neighbour's 2010 Avalanche...

Decals! That's the answer....

So I may stay period correct (97) or i may mix it up to see what's best

First the decals that gill has are:

Or I could get some of these remade

Or copy yours LGF

I'm willing to change the colour ways to get the best effect. Inspired by Nick C's Kona I'm provisionally thinking white on white could be cool.

Thoughts?

Mine are - I think - 1994 factory originals, the '93 being a bit plain.

I like the red ones but, my fave are my own.
