Good im glad to hear it, get on the blower and ask him if its possible, it will make all the difference IMHO.

I'm with the decals from Gil absolutely satisfied and I highly recommend him everywhere.

as I said, your feeling comes only through false picture lighting. Tomorrow I take a few pictures outside and we see.

:facepalm:

mate its your bike, and its merely a recommendation.

And ref Gil, i dont need to agree he has the skills, great job for a good price and all that.
AFWIW there are plenty of my bikes around with gils decals too.
No one is slating Gil, just the fact these decals, look wrong compared to the original, they stand out like a sore thumb, and its easily resolved.

What you choose to do, given its so simple to rectify is completely up to you.

To be honest your thread gave me the impression you wanted it perfect.
Sorry if i misunderstood.... :oops:

I thought they might be Gils. I know someone with the full back catalogue of genuine Fat Chance decals.

Carl I can understand you, but you don't have everything perfect all at once.
and it gets harder if you do a lot of projects at once.

I think it will be perfect .. even with this decals. :D

Some pics in outside (unfortunately light was not optimal)

Fair play mate, they certainly look better for pressing the decals onto the frame more.

You'll need a pin spanner to get them off!

awesome, really like that, i like the more subtle build kit aswel, i think the paint is bright enough on an aquafade to not need all the anodised blue/green parts which most people fit.
:D
